Game Menu
What makes this game outstanding, is the mixture of RPG and Action elements. Instead of going through lots of menus, you just have to slay down the enemy. And take a look at the sprites. Yes, that are sprites that you are very familiar with, if you're a fan of the side-scrolling Golden Axe series. The handling is a bit tough sometimes, because the bats are really fast and your first hit has to kill the enemy. But after a few minutes you'll get the hang on it. Make sure to read as much dialogs as possible, since some of them are just too funny to skip.

The brave warrior Tarik has set out on a journey of adventure equipped with his powerful sword and magic in order to retrieve the Golden Axe which has been stolen by the Titan Death-Adder. The journey that lies ahead is filled with danger and treachery as Tarik will have to do battle with many bandits and strange creatures that are waiting for him.

A respectable attempt at portraying a favourite hack-'em up. But you only get the choice to control one player, not three.

Choose from 3 characters and match skill and steel with the minions of the evil Death Adder, who has taken over the kingdom. Ported from the acclaimed series of coin-op games.

This is the first of the legendary Sega platform fighters that were the rage of the arcades during their day. While the Golden Axe games can't hold a candle to the Streets of Rage series, there's still enough in here to keep the average gamer content for a long time. Good graphics, decent sound, and better than average gameplay which gets rather involved at times.

Golden Axe is a sideways scrolling beat-em-up set in a traditional fantasy world, in which up to three warriors take up arms to rescue the kidnapped King and his Queen from the evil Death Adder.

The game's three different playable characters are an Amazonian warrior, a Barbarian hero and a Viking dwarf. Each character has a special attack move that is activated by pressing both JUMP and ATTACK at the same time. Also, double-tapping the joystick right or left will make the character charge and smash into opponents.

At certain points during the game, players will come across enemies riding creatures (such as dragons). If the player knocks the original rider from the saddle, the created can be mounted and used against the enemy.

At certain points during a level, as well as on the between-stage intermittent levels, Goblins appear carrying a sack on their back. Players can hit the Goblins causing them to drop food and magic potions - the latter of which are used to create a special magical attack that damages or kills all on-screen enemies.

Each of the game's heroes uses a different kind of magic: the Barbarian uses Earth magic, the Amazon uses fire magic and the Viking dwarf uses lightning magic. In addition: each player character also carries a different weapon: the Amazonian warrior and the Barbarian both use swords while the Viking dwarf wields an axe.

Golden Axe consists of 9 levels, although only 5 of these are true levels as every 2nd stage is a short intermittent level featuring only the sack-carrying Goblins.

Once Golden Axe has been beaten, an end sequence is a scene of a video arcade, in which the game's characters jump out of the arcade cabinet and chase the game's players out of the arcade and down the street.

He has instead now gotten his hands on the Golden Axe, and is using it for his own nasty purposes, and with his minions is causing much chaos.

So once more, Ax-Battler, the fierce barbarian; Tyris-Flare, the fearless Amazon; Gilius Thunderhead, the ferocious dwarf, rise up to deal with the oppression, with their might and magic, and recover the Golden Axe.

Choose from 3 different characters and match skill and steel with the minions of the evil Death Adder, who has taken over the kingdom. Ported from the acclaimed series of coin-op games.

This is the third of the legendary Sega platform fighters that were the rage of the arcades during their day, adding a few more characters & new moves from it's predecessors - fans of the series say that the third is the best of the lot. While the Golden Axe games can't hold a candle to the Streets of Rage series, there's still enough in here to keep the average gamer content for a long time. Good graphics, decent sound, and better than average gameplay which gets rather involved at times.

Golden Axe Warrior is a spin-off of the Golden Axe games, a series of side-scrolling Beat'Em Ups from Sega. In ancient times a horde of giants rebelled against the elders and a brutal war ensued. Things looked grave until finally a hero, carrying the Golden Axe, appeared and drove back the giants. Since then, the kingdom of Firewood has been ruled by a family that had mastered the power of the nine crystals to ward off all evil from Firewood. Everyone lived in peace until one of Firewood's ministers betrayed his king and sold the nine crystals to Death Adder, one of the evil giants. Death Adder has hidden the nine crystals in nine dungeons, has unleashed hordes of monsters and is threatening to take over the world. Will there be another hero who can find the Golden Axe and defeat Death Adder?

Gameplay in Golden Axe Warrior is very similar to The Legend Of Zelda, meaning you will spend most of your time exploring the large overworld fighting against lots of enemies and looking for the dungeons in which the crystals are hidden. Inside the dungeons you have to fight more enemies, find treasures and keys, solve simple puzzles and defeat the dungeon's boss to get one of the crystals. In order to survive against the large number of enemies, you will be able to find many different weapons and three different spells.

Like it's legendary prequel, 1989's "Golden Axe"; 'Revenge' is sideways scrolling beat-em-up set in a traditional fantasy world, in which the evil 'Death Adder' has arisen to take over the lands. The game supports simultaneous four-player gameplay, with each player taking on one of the game's characters. The four available characters are 'Sternblade' (a barbarian warrior), 'Dora' (a female centaurian), 'Goah' (a giant with a dwarf sitting atop his shoulders) and 'Little Trix' (an agile, oriental-style warrior).

As with 'Golden Axe', each character has a special attack move that is activated by pressing both JUMP and ATTACK at the same time. Also, double-tapping the joystick right or left will cause the player to charge and smash into opponents. At certain points during the game, players will come across certain creatures and contraptions (such as dragons, giant scorpions and catapults) which, once the original occupier has been removed from the saddle, can be mounted and ridden/utilized to attack the enemy.

At certain points during a level, as well as at the end of each level, dwarfs appears carrying a sack on their back. Players can hit the dwarfs causing them to drop food and magic potions. During the course of the game, players will also come across numerous trapped prisoners. These can be released by either opening their cages (by pulling a rope or similar) or hacking at their foot manacles.

Unlike the linear level layout of its prequel, 'Revenge' offers the player a branching route through the game, adding to its variety and longevity.
