Rastan features five levels of hacking and slashing gameplay with a boss at the end of each level. Numerous enemies assault you on your journey such as flying demons, chimeras, valkyries, piranhas, undead and more. Fight through to the end and save the land of Lograth from certain doom.

The game features different weapons such as axes, maces and fire swords, each with its own attributes like extended range or attack power. Armour can also be picked up in the forms of shields, cloaks and armour, reducing the damage from enemy attacks. Other items include rings (increase the speed of your weapon) and jewelry for bonus points.

Only in the manual of the Master System? 2 Rwolf (18443)

If you stand around doing nothing for too long, bats come and attack you. They can be killed and were incentive to keep moving.

Cancelled conversions

ST and Amiga conversions were planned by Ocean, and advertised as 'coming soon' at one point, but never released, apparently due to 'technical difficulties' (WEC Le Mans never reached those systems for the same reason). However, in 2014 a working disk with a demo of Rastan for the Atari ST was found. The demo is running, but far from finished.

Game Gear version

Rastan was released for the Game Gear in Japan. However, unlike most other Game Gear games, it was a straight port of the Master System version, running not in a letterbox format, but instead using the GG's Master System compatibility mode, resulting in a fuzzy screen with small sprites which is difficult to render in screenshots.

Master System version

The instruction manual for the Master System version of this game is notorious for containing several nude female enemies (Harpie, Meduza, Gorgon), which have bare breasts and what appears to be pubic hair.
