Title Wrath of the Demon Game Type General Action Players 1 Compatibility All Company Readysoft HD Installable Patch Available Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review Many people compare this game to the Shadow of the Beast games, where a character blasts his way through an attractively drawn, horizontally scrolling world, saying that they are all the same. Similiar yes, but I think this game is its own game. You control a man who must battle his way through the lands killing any creatures that you will come across. You start the game on horseback and must jump over obsticles while collecting any potions that you find. Make it past all the obstacles and then you will go to the next level where you will be on foot. On these levels you are armed with a sword and must make your way to the end of these levels. You can go either left or right and must collect a certain object to be able to access different parts of the level. These levels do play similiar to the Shadow of the Beast games but have enough variety to make it different. There are a number of guardians that you will come across and you must figure out which attacks will defeat them. Some potions can be used to inflict major damage and some other potions will restore your health. You can only carry a limited number of potions so you should use them or you won't be able to collect any new ones that you come across. The game is a graphical treat. I think that they are just as good if not slighlty better then the Shadow of the beast series. The sound is also very good. You are even treated to a very impressive animated intro sequence before the game begins. One feature that makes this game better then Shadow of the Beast is the option of being able to save your game. After completing a level you have the option of saving your position. You can save a number of games and load any one of them if you wanted to replay any. WELL DONE READYSOFT! In conclusion, this game shows that a game can be a graphical masterpiece and still be a very playable game. Yes, there are similarities with the Shadow of the Beast but this game is different enough and should still be purchased. In my opinion this game is better than Shadow of the Beast. There are some really amazing graphical effects (check out the lightning bolt that turns into a skeleton) and everything moves very smoothly. This is one game that will impress anyone that plays or watches it. I wish there was an AGA version of this game. If you liked Shadow of the Beast, then you will love this! This game is almost a classic and is an essential purchase. Treat yourself to this graphic and sound masterpiece.
