STORY / GAMEPLAY
Warlocks is an action platform game featuring a reincarnated knight tasked to save the world of Lylvania from the tyranny of 3 demented Warlocks. Warlocks' advertising boasted that it is the only Acorn game to ever feature 8 directional, 256 color screens, parallax scrolling and running at a consistent 50 frames per second.
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics of this game are very interesting. They have an impressive count of colors (256), detailed backgrounds and cool looking sprites! The animation is smooth and the action is pretty fast. Warlocks reminds me of the awesome (but tough) Capcom's Ghouls 'n Ghosts! Apart from its good visuals, the game's sound is equally good featuring sampled sound effects. I actually do not know if there are any in-game tunes as this is the demo of the main game reviewed.
