In addition to its terrific graphics, Conan features an absolutely killer soundtrack. The upbeat, harmonized tunes are catchy as hell, and I never got tired of hearing them. The main character is chunky but agile, able to perform jump-flips and fling swords at enemies. The control lags slightly and collision detection could be tighter, but overall the game plays very well. The screens are progressively more difficult and most require some degree of strategy. Conan does possess one major flaw however, and that would be the heinous slowdown that occurs in later screens (notable screen five). When too many objects are moving at once, the action becomes painfully slow, and even old school junkies will find it hard to tolerate. Other than that, Conan is a good-looking and thoroughly engaging adventure.

I always thought Conan was big, strong and crude until I saw the 'sprites' used in this game: small, flickery and crude (well at least they got something right!). The game itself wasn't a lot better than the graphics: a fairly run of the mill platform game with tacky controls and nothing to bring me back for more, other than to write this comment.
