ake three heroes, add several dwarves, one evil queen and a dash of epic quest and you have got a blockbusting D&D movie, not to mention a potential game licence.
I could tell you the whole story but I’d probably get done under some copyright law, so I will take the relevant stages.
DOSACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Average graphics, juddery scrolling and stilted animation complement and compound the lame gameplay, while constant disk accessing finally kills any remaining urge to continue. Willow does have one saving grace, though: it plays a nice soundtrack at the beginning.
Atari STThe Games Machine (UK)
The ST sprites are badly coloured, drawn and animated, backdrops are plain and the digitised pictures have random red and blue pixels spread over them. Willow simply isn't worth the bother.
AmigaThe Games Machine (UK)
The Amiga game is depressingly similar to the ST's. The loading time is no faster and, other than the clearer digitised pictures, graphics are equally poor, and the music is a grating single-channel tune.
As Willow, hero of the game and the movie, you've got to make it through several sections to rescue a baby from the powers of a wicked queen.
