    The Warrior King



    Lands that produce men of legend, dragon slayers, lie in his shadow - guardians of evil fear his fire spewing sword, the axe he wields as swift as lightning. State of the art programming makes a true simulation of the Arcade for your home micro, enjoy superb graphics and realistic action as RASTAN takes on a world of dangers - magical wizards, fire breathing lions, bats, snakes, skeletons and finally the living dead. Is it more than you can handle?

    "...nice musical soundtrack, good graphics, lava pits, magical weapons, and a proven track record as an arcade game." - Info Magazine

    "Graphic characters are bright, colorful and well-defined... the scrolling smooth, almost seamless, response to joystick movement is crisp." - Run Magazine

    Rastan is a video action version of the legend that has been passed down from generation to generation.
