Blade Warrior is a fantasy hack-n-slash action adventure in a twilight, shadows world under siege! The game has unique graphics that look like a film animated scene! Blade Warrior was initially released for the Commodore Amiga computers and later for the PC (MS-DOS). An Atari ST version was never released, although planned.

Blade WarriorSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The prince of darkness Murk is here to rule your land. If your homeland is to see the light of day again, Murk must be killed! You must take up arms against the new ruler and his evil and deadly creatures! You have to build your own magical powers to a level that can challenge his abilities. To achieve that, You have to explore your homeland and collect a number of artifacts. Visiting the local Mazes will allow you to improve your magical powers. Be aware of the evil warriors like huge deadly spiders and more as you progress into the darkness! The deadly shadows are everywhere and thirsty for your blood!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
Much like the original Amiga original version, the graphics look really creepy! The PC DOS version supports VGA, EGA and CGA graphics hardware (screenshots from all three graphics modes are shown below). Blade Warrior features nicely animated characters and fast action! Note that in VGA or EGA mode the game runs better with smoother sprite animation and background / foreground scrolling). The atmosphere is misty and haunting, the sprites are light shadows with great animation! The backgrounds feature bright white lighted planes while the foreground consists of some dark (shadows of) rocks and trees. The haunting graphical atmosphere is completed with some chilling horror-style effects (but not sampled on the DOS). Comparably, the Amiga version offers some impressive sampled sound effects during gameplay.
