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 PC (MS-DOS) version supports VGA graphics cards, having great graphics and offering most of the original (Amiga) details. The number of colors being used is increased here and the difference is visible at the color-gradients of the background skies when compared to the original Amiga version. I've noticed though that the PC version misses some detail at the backgrounds (i.e. check the moon found at the sky on the Amiga version). Note that there are several impressive details such as flaming pits and waterfalls that add a lot to the overall presentation of the game. Sprites move fast, although the control is a bit awkward, especially when jumping to reach higher grounds.
Sound is good having the excellent intro tune taken from the original and, although inferior in quality (compared to the Amiga), is still very pleasant to listen. The game also offers in-game sounds FX, which are rather poor compared to the sampled Amiga sound.
