The evil wizard Karg (don't you just love the names?) has conquered the land of Maranna, leaving the ex-king, Rastan, looking like a bit of a lemon. So, in a fit of rage, he decides to pick up his trusty sword and dish out some proper justice to Karg and his minions, and get his kingdom back into the bargain.

Generally, this involves traversing the eight way scrolling landscape, letting all and sundry bite the biscuit with a variety of medieval weaponry. End-of-level guardians spice up the action, and then the multi-load rears its ugly head. After the pause, more perilous adventures await the hardiest barbarians...


Fairly good music, pretty good visuals, and plenty of fun on offer in this conversion that warrants serious consideration.


A hugely playable slash-'em-up that's a sexy snip at a budget price.
