Sega Master System / Mark III / Game Gear
Yo, hunky warriors! Pull on those fur-lined boots, shoulder that axe and let's go slice and dice some lizards. In fact let's go hack up anything that moves on this horizontally-scrolling landscape.
As you wander along, leaping holes and pools, swinging on ropes and climbing between floors, there are all sorts of things to fight. Some of them fly, some jump, but most just come straight at you.
Extra weapons, food, potions and what-have-you can be picked up along the way. Weapons are positioned specifically, but everything else is randomly distributed after the death of nasties.
It's a lot of fun and the 'continue' option allows you to get reasonably far into the levels. Would not go amiss in anyone's collection.
