Game Introduction

The players are adventurers: a human fighter, a human Cleric, a female Elf warrior-mage and a Dwarven warrior. They travel from place to place performing heroic deeds and making the world safe from the forces of darkness, all the while fighting monsters, gathering treasure and advancing in power.

Game Play

This game is much like a normal beat-em-up but there are lots of different enemies and routes to follow.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

As was mentioned, the players get to choose different routes through the game. It is possible to slay the red dragon, only very difficult. The dragon uses his breath weapon three times: each time contact with the flame breath will result in instant death. However, continuing is allowed. After the third breath weapon, the dragon's life bar will appear and he can be slain.

Trivia

The gameplay and graphics are like an updated version of Capcom's Final Fight. The little sword-swinging flourish the fighter does after defeating a major enemy is taken directly from Capcom's previous side-scrolling sword fighting game, Knights Of The Round.

Cabinet Information

The dedicated marquee, designed for the big Capcom cabinets, is very large. It measures 13 inches tall by 25 inches wide, and features each of the four characters standing shoulder to shoulder, fighting the monsters seen in the game.

Technical

The third and fourth player controls are mapped to the option connector on the CPS2 board. The fourth button for players one and two are mapped to the JAMMA connector on pins 25 and c, respectively.

Fixes

This game suffers from the usual Capcom battery death problem. The only fix for most of these games is to return the board to Capcom for repair.
