You must fight the Demon King who killed your Master Samurai and took over the world. Your powers are your sword and of course the martial arts training you got from a Wizard Mage. Your mission unfolds through 10 levels of tortuous terrain. The first four levels take place in downtown Japan and continues with a high speed journey on a subway train until you reach the Demon’s King horrendous domains! Mastering the art of unarmed combat and sword handling is imperative and you must fight hordes of adversaries such as bats, fire-breathing dragons, rats etc. Not only that, but another immediate danger is the landscape as the entire background is animated! Huge burning pits and massive water-falls must be overcome in one way or another too (sometimes with the precious help of the Wizard-Maze only)! Your powers (and stamina) can be increased by collecting several objects found on your way.
The game was originally produced for OCS/ECS Amiga chipsets with versions to follow for the Atari ST, C64, MS-DOS and the Nintendo Super NES.
The Atari ST version offers colorful graphics on both backgrounds and sprites, close enough to the Amiga and PC versions although the screen colors are reduced here (up to 24) whilst some background details (like the planets, as illustrated in the gallery) are missing. Sprites here move quite fast on screen along with smooth enough background scrolling. Note that there are several impressive details such as flaming pits and waterfalls that add a lot to the overall presentation of the game.
What the ST version really misses is the quality of sound here. The music is a bad example of the original (Amiga) while the in-game sound FX and tunes are poor but well, nice to have… Still though, the game looks and sounds good enough to attract your interest!
