Late 80s / early 90s coin-op

So, I;ve just finished reading Ready Player One. Excellent book, you'll love it. Anyway, it mentions a game called Black Tiger, so I gave it a go. Fun. But it reminded me of another game. In Black Tiger the protagonist uses a mace / morning star type weapon and it recalled another coin-op from about that time. The only thing I really remember is there was a weapon display in one of the corners I think and at one point the character uses a weapon called morning star.

Any ideas? I know it's not a lot to go on. Was set in a dungeon or castle, if that's any help...

How about Wizard Fire by Data East? The knight uses a ball and chain.

I think that may be it - I don't recognise much of it but some of it seems very familiar!
