Published in Amstrad Action #18


A sword battle against different backdrops and three increasingly difficult opponents. The opponents load separately with the new scenery. Quite tricky sword-fighting and nice graphics, but nothing very original about it.


Graphics 71%
P. Good animation of fighters.
N. Colourful characters and scenery.

Sonics 46%
P. Good fight noises.
N. Painful version of It's a Kind of Magic

Grab Factor 52%
P. Quite absorbing fighting.
N. Not easy to control sword moves accurately.

Staying Power 44%
N. Three very similar opponents.
N. No variety in the fighting.

Overall 48%
N. Chalk up another failed film licence.
