The original arcade game that launched the immensely popular Golden Axe series is now available through Virtual Console!
The villainous Death Adder has taken the king and his daughter prisoner, and only three brave warriors have stepped forward to oppose him. The powerful barbarian, Ax Battler, the skilled Amazon warrior, Tyris Flare, and the mighty dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead, must use their weapons and magic to fight their way through Death Adder's evil hordes! Along the way, they'll mount fearsome, fire-breathing beasts to help even the odds.
Team up with a friend and enjoy two-player simultaneous gameplay for a better chance of survival against Death Adder's fearsome hordes!
