Weapons all have unlimited use so the fun is in experimenting with which work best. Another interesting feature is the broomstick which can be selected to traverse across spike pits and those hard to reach areas, but can be awkward to use as Francesca can’t jump while using it. A pumping soundtrack accompanies the witch hero along the way. This solid game offers a huge challenge, which may make it inaccessible to many due to its sheer difficulty, lack of continues, and unpolished controls.

A young witch takes on an evil empire in this adventure from Vic Tokai. The look and feel reminiscent of the Mega Man series.

There is a lot to like in Krion Conquest. But its various flaws ultimately make it a disappointment. Krion Conquest’s decent production values and gameplay ideas are marred by lacking execution. It may look like Mega Man. It may play like Mega Man. But Krion Conquest is no substitute for the real thing.

The Krion Conquest is a seriously challenging game that gets off to a bad start and never recovers. Instead of capitalising on its strong core mechanics it seems set on annoying the player with its cheap deaths, uninspiring level design and egregious lack of continues.

A sense of “why-bother?” permeates the entire game, especially since the enemies are brutal and health is scarce. Sad, because The Krion Conquest could have been an enjoyable Mega Man-esque adventure, had it stuck a little more religiously to the source it “borrows” from. Instead, it’s soulless, an abandoned shell of a far superior game. Capcom deserves better homages.
