Features

The game takes place in the fictional land of Yuria, a Conan the Barbarian-style high fantasy medieval world.The story is about an evil entity who's known as the Death Adder has captured the King and his daughter and he holds them captive in their castle. Unfortunately,he also finds the Golden Axe which the magical emblem of Yuria and he threatens to destroy both the axe and the royal family unless the people of Yuria accept him as their ruler. In this game, players control one of three warriors: the battle axe-wielding dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead, from the mines of Wolud, whose twin brother was killed by the soldiers of Death Adder; a male barbarian, Ax Battler, wielding a two handed broadsword looking for revenge for the murder of his mother and a long-sword-wielding Tyris Flare, an amazon, whose parents were both killed by Death Adder. The game consists of the character's journey to the castle, saving inhabitants ransacked in Turtle Village, crossing the seas and flying into the castle itself to fight Death Adder, who is wielding the Golden Axe. The battle does not end with the death of Death Adder, as the king who is released informs the player that Death Adder was taking orders from someone. The player in the end enters the castle for the last battle against Death Adder's mentor. Progress can actually be made through the game by fighting through Death Adder's henchmen. Each character has the ability to cast spells and various steeds are found in the game, which are known as bizarrians which can be ridden when the enemy rider is knocked off or if one is found dormant. The game features the “The Duel” which is a gameplay mode that can be played either single or two-player.
