Title: Do you remember this game?
Post by Varwulf on 21. Feb 2015 at 15:51
Greetings all!  I've been in a rather nostalgic mood lately, so I've been cruising various forums trying to see if people more familiar with the specific brand might have a better idea than what my memory can remember of my childhood.

I received a game for Christmas from my aunt and uncle, I want to say sometime in the early 90s.  It was your typical platformer fare where you moved your hero from the left side of the screen to the right.  I remember specifically that your character was some kind of knightly figure, maybe a paladin even.  He reminded me a little bit of Dirk the Daring from Dragon's Lair, but I might actually be thinking of that game instead, as my memory is fuzzy :P

I remember the first level was like a sort of castle and I do believe there were lava pits you could fall into.  The only enemy I can recall was a Medusa but I do not remember how fighting that monster really worked in the game, I remember close to nothing about it apart from the hero himself, the layout of the first level, and that one monster.  I remember I didn't play it a whole lot as I found in particularly challenging for my young mind, but alas, I'm desperately wanting to play it again :)

Anyone have any suggestions?  I'll look up your suggestions for screen shots or video and see if I can find the right one.  Thanks a bunch and have a great day! :)

Hey, thanks for the reply!  I took a look at gameplay from all of your suggestions and nothing looks familiar, though I am incredibly grateful for your quick reply and your effort to look into this for me :)

Oh man, I remember almost nothing about that.  Pretty sure the weapon was a sword, but I think you could get a power up that gave you a (possibly throwing?) axe attack.  Man it's been so long, all I remember is that darn Medusa and that he looked like a knight/paladin in his armor lol  Now that I think about it the Medusa might have been the first boss.

Oh man, you nailed it.  The instant I heard the intro music I knew that was it.  Thanks a lot!

Man, it's amazing how just a small bit of a music theme can bring you right back to the early 90s in an instant :)
