Great action game if only too hard, just like Rygar. But luckily the VCA doesn't see you wasting quarters, so who cares?



vio said:

Man, whoever recorded that needs a new video capture device. What a jerky mess.

Keeper, the thing about Rygar is that it doesn't let you continue for the last few levels which means its still very difficult, if not barely impossible to complete.



MeloMan said:

The shop mechanic reminds me of Forgotten Worlds. I'm liking the Rygar-ish action myself. Imma keep an eye on this one.



RocketBird said:

totally forgot this game existed. One of my favorite arcade games back in the day. Sure hope this one gets a good review!



WWammy said:
