Risky WoodsSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The hero of the game is Rohan, a young warrior on a quest to save a number of deities kept prisoners inside stones (!) He is forced to fight against numerous ancient warriors and skeletons trying to prevent him from saving the gods, and also deal with a more deadly enemy: a potential fall from a platform which will instantly kill him and will decrease the total number of coins he collects. Rohan's weaponry is limited to knives, boomerangs and a few other throwing weapons that must be shot rapidly towards the enemies as they attack in groups! Each time an enemy sprite is down, one or more coins appear for you to collect. These coins can be used to increase your armor's strength (on the Sega Genesis version) while on the ST, Amiga and DOS versions you'll have to enter shops and pay to upgrade your weaponry
Risky Woods is a standard action platform game, and nothing new has been incorporated to separate it from the rest of its genre, but it still is impressive (and tough).

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game runs on VGA only and features great visuals with colorful backgrounds and smooth sprites animation, without any major slowdowns. To the game's sound, the PC (DOS) version includes a few and sampled sound effects.
