Golden Axe (1989)

by on Mar.29, 2012, under RetroLOLs

Golden Axe is a side-scrolling, beat ’em up, arcade video game released in 1989 by Sega (how on Earth is this over 30 years old??) for the #SEGAMegaDrive hardware. It is the first game in the #GoldenAxe series.

The game takes place in the fictional land of Yuria. An evil entity known as Death Adder has captured the King and his daughter, and holds them captive in their castle. He also finds the Golden Axe, the magical emblem of Yuria, and threatens to destroy both the axe and the royal family unless the people of Yuria accept him as their ruler. Three warriors set out on a quest to rescue Yuria and avenge their losses at the hands of Death Adder. The first is a battle axe-wielding dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead, from the mines of Wolud, whose twin brother was killed by the soldiers of Death Adder. Another is a male barbarian, Ax Battler, wielding a two-handed broadsword, looking for revenge for the murder of his mother. The last is a longsword-wielding amazon, Tyris Flare, whose parents were both killed by Death Adder.

Dan and I first filmed this back in 2012 but remastered for YouTube now.
