Blades of Vengeance
by Beam Software
I'veplayed Blades of Vengeance on my Sega Mega Drive/Genesis few months after it was released, when I got it for my birthday. For who doesn't know, the game's purpose is to stop Manax, The Dark Lady from destroying and ruling the world. One or two players can take control of one of the three playable characters and follow the levels until the target has been reached. There are three different playable character: The Huntress, The Warrior and The Sorcerer. The Huntress was the most skilled one, while The Sorcerer was the weaker.
Blades of Vengeance is a side scrolling fantasy action game where players can choose from three different character classes: huntress, warrior, and sorcerer. Armed with a variety of weapons, set out to slay a variety of monsters and free the kingdom. Choosing from a Huntress, Warrior, or Sorcerer, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, you must venture off to put a stop to the chaos. There are plenty of standard attacks but there are also magical attacks which you'll need to learn to use to fend off some of the bigger threats.
Power-ups give spells and items to become invisible, heal wounds, or create a temporary force field. Find money to buy more equipment between eight levels, all of which have end bosses.
Get out a whetstone and sharpen your steel — Blades of Vengeance from Electronic Arts for the Genesis brings solitary or two-player simultaineous swordplay to the hack and slashers fan. Guide your choice from a group of three characters through eight levels of fantasy adventure and danger. You can play as a Barbarian, a Huntress or a Magician and leap into the fray. Kill the monsters who block your path, search for magical items and save the Kingdom. Any questions?
- Search for hidden areas on the other side of walls that seem solid.
- You can pause one player in the two-player game and take no hits with the paused player.
- When armored, each player has a special attack that can be charged by pressing and holding the D-button Up.
