Game Introduction

Your Knight travels the countryside fighting monsters and bandits. When you enter combat the view changes to a pseudo first-person perspective where the body of your knight is outlined so you can see the creatures you are fighting. When enemies have been defeated they drop money and power-ups.

Game Play

This game only uses the A and B buttons. Moving the joystick up and down raises and lowers your shield. Hitting the A and B button while pushing UP makes you do a Force Attack with the sword. Hitting the A and B buttons alone does a Slash Attack. Pressing A and B while pulling DOWN makes you do a Mental Attack.
