Despite the changes made the quest is rather exciting, one that involves plenty of action with a degree of mental exercise. It will take the two heroes some time to complete and should keep all adventurers enthralled for many moons to come.
As for Cadash, it was a pretty face on an average game when it was first made, but now it isn't even that.

Raffinierte Action-Variante mit einer Priese Rollenspiel. Mehr Levels und ein Passwort-System werden vermisst.
Cadash est l'exemple type du jeu rempli de bonnes intentions mais qui n'est pas à la hauteur des trop nombreux et ambitieux objectifs qu'il s'est fixés. Il faut dire qu'il était à l'époque assez rare de voir un beat'em all se dérouler dans un mode ouvert et reprendre à son compte quelques éléments de RPG. Malheureusement, les moyens mis en œuvre ne sont pas à la hauteur. Graphismes moyens, jouabilité limitée, scénario relégué au second plan et progression qui exige des séances de leveling sans offrir la possibilité de sauvegarder sa partie, tout cela empêche Cadash d'entrer au panthéon très sélectif des hits intemporels. Si toutefois vous êtes friand de ce style de jeu, nous ne saurions trop vous conseiller le très bon Wonder Boy in Monster World, sorti sur la même machine et qui est, lui, une valeur sûre.

Though it's aged quite a bit since it's arcade debut, Cadash is still an enjoyable action/RPG that always keeps the emphasis on the action. Grab a friend and head into some action/RPG nostalgia!
In the end, though it might sound like I'm knocking the game, I'm not. I admit it, I love Cadash. It's got a slightly better than usual plot, a great quest, fun multi-player, decent music. Unfortunately, it also has issues with control, difficulty and the lack of some kind of save feature. The title is solidly above average, but it definitely falls short in some regards. Ah, it's at times like this I wish I could decimal my score for clearer accuracy.

While Cadash for the Genesis does prove its worth as a challenging, solid side-scrolling quest complete with two-player capability, to really experience this excellent adventure game, hunt down a copy for your Turbografx-16. And while it’s generally frowned upon by 'real gamers,' you could always try your hand at the coin-op version for the Raine emulator--a seemingly dubious choice for most, until they’ve played Sega’s competent, though somewhat dull copy of what is a superbly engaging game.

Für ein überwiegend von Prügelei lebendes Spiel ist die Anzahl der möglichen Angriffsschläge sehr mickrig ausgefallen. Gerade drei verschiedene Möglichkeiten wurden dem Krieger zugestanden: Schwerthieb im Stehen, Schwerthieb in der Hocke und mit nach unten gerichteter Klinge auf einen Gegner springen. Der Magier beherrscht sogar nur die ersten beiden Techniken. Grafisch bewegt sich “Cadash“ nur knapp über Master-System-Niveau. Die Monster wachsen endlos nach und machen die Prügelei unfair Wer sich unbedingt im finsteren Mittelalter prügeln will, sollte lieber auf die “Golden Axe“-Serie zurückgreifen.
