Description

In this action adventure, you play Rau, a warrior hero. Accompanying him is his sacred bird, Kuzo, who helps him by activating items, scouting ahead, and reading ancient scripts. This is a beat 'em up game with many twists. There is a unique targeting system that helps you decide which enemy to attack by pressing the corresponding buttons. Bash your enemies with the game's nice combo system. Rau has several weapons to choose from like his sword, Taiaha, axe, and even a bow. But Rau isn't just a brawny "walk up and beat him up guy", he can also work stealthly, taking out his enemies in single strikes. The cutscenes are hand drawn and animated. There are many items to unlock and other modes of play.
