A famous side scrolling action game (beat 'em up) that puts you in control of a centurion who had died in battle. The centurion has been raised from the dead to rescue Athena (Zeus' daughter). You battle undead and demonic hordes, controlling the shape-shifting hero. You must fight through five levels in order to save the kidnapped goddess. Opponents on the first level are zombies, and you must use your kicks and fists to explode their bodies into parts! By collecting certain capsules found from the bodies, you may turn into a muscle werewolf! Enter level two as a dragon (!) firing electricity bolts while using an energy shield do avoid damage. In later levels (three, four, fifth) you become again a werewolf smashing everything on your way. Oh, please note that at the end of each level the evil wizards transforms into a huge creature with the customary magician's puff of smoke! Although 'Centurion' was a rank in the Roman Army, the game takes place in a setting resembling Ancient Greece, complete with gods, temples and ruined Ionic columns. The game features a co-op mode which gives a lot of fun and adds to the overall impression of the game.
The Amstrad CPC version features nice colorful graphics, with well animated sprites and most of the original (arcades) background details, though background scrolling is AWFULL and cannot compare to the C64 version which looks and plays way better! It's obvious once again that, the game is a direct port from the ZX Spectrum version, but offering a lot more colors. The sound on the other hand, is good having a very well composed music (taken from the original) and several sound effects during gameplay.
