In the Land of Gangore, a place of six separate kingdoms, you're a warrior with strength of an army, and an appetite for fame. The land is too hostile though, and every kingdom is under different rule and each with its own army trying to defeat and take over the surroundings. You start your quest by selecting one of the neighboring kingdoms to battle with. Each kingdom has its own ruler with his own special statistics. Your opponents also have a Wizard Lord rating to let you know how hard it will be to defeat each ruler in mind duels! Minions ranging from robbers to...undead, attacking in hordes on you! At each stage you must reach at the very left where your enemy's banner is held. During your quest, Magical relics and scrolls can be collected from fallen enemies, as well as weapons they drop which can be used too. Apart of the evil nasties, there are other dangers scattered around, such as... mines! As said, a mind duel will also have to be fought twice during the game. Fortunately the game offers a save-game feature otherwise this would be an almost impossible game to play!
Gameplay did not really appeal to me as it is not very original as it sounds while looking repetitive also. The play area is extremely clattered, making it difficult to see exactly what is going on, honestly! But still, the game worth a try, especially for people that loved arcade action games back to the late 80's.
Ok, graphics are of high standards, with well defined sprites and colorful backdrops using 40 colors on-screen in both ST (!) and Amiga versions. In fact, backdrops are TOO colorful and the play area is so much occupied at times, that makes gameplay...frustrating! There are several big explosions too, while sprites are nicely drawn and move fast. The backgrounds use a lot of coloring, which sometimes look awkward as there is NO color (gradient) smoothness. But still, impressive to watch... Both Amiga and ST look identical here!
Soundwise, the game sports a well composed introductory tune, while there are a few atmospheric in-game tunes along with sampled sound FX here (those are missing on the Amiga version!!!!). The music though is overlapped from the sounds FX due to the limited output channels of the ST sound hardware.
