We're off to see the Bringer, the wonderful Bringer of Death
Golden Axe, I always wanted to use the Golden Axe. But alas only the Baddies can.
This was a game which was a side on hack-em-up, for one or two players. Best in two player but fun nonetheless in single player.
Taking control of either Ax Battler (The Warrior Hero who strangely wielded a broad sword), Tyrus Flare (An amazon whose speciality was Fire magic), and Gilius Thunderhead (He was a Dwarf with Thunder & Lightning based sorcery). You must save the day by defeating Death Adder who has taken control of the Land & its people with the use of the fabled & powerful Golden Axe.
There are about 6 levels to this game where you cut the enemy to bits and defeat strong end of level guardians. With the help of the local Reptilian creatures and a bit of Magic for good measure. It is a good conversion of the original Arcade game which is itself an excellent game.
The end of the game 'Brings' a surprise but many Golden Axers will already have found this out for themselves.
The game is extremely addictive and holds excellent replay value. The 'Duel' mode is good for a laugh too.
A very worthy game which is recommended to all.
There are parts in the game where you have to leap across larger than normal chasms & gaps in the level. Repeated deaths are often found here & can prove mighty frustrating.
The Bottom Line
The original and best hack-em-up.
