Grouch - European title
Rocko starts with a simple sword (he is also quite adept at fighting with bare fists), but he will be able to acquire additional weapons by disarming his opponents and wielding whatever they were using against him - which mostly includes melee weapons, but also a few ranged ones, such as a bow. Healing items and power-ups that increase Rocko's attack power are sometimes dropped by enemies as well.
Platforming occupies a large portion of the gameplay. Rocko can run, jump, climb, and swing, to help him get past various obstacles. These include moving platforms and assorted environmental hazards (hot geyzers, spikes, pits, etc.).
