Golden Axe II
by SEGA Entertainment, Inc.
Be careful using your magic, because you never know when you'll get more.
Get rid of the skeletons before taking on the headless knight.
Practice your attack skills!
Since the Death Adder breathed its last, the land has been peaceful. But behind that quiet, a powerful evil has been gathering force, building ominously like a giant thundercloud ready to burst and rain destruction on the land. Dark Guld is ready to unleash his odious scheme to plunge the world into ruinous chaos.
And he has the Golden Axe, that symbol of peace and prosperity. The time has come once again to turn to Ax-Battler, Tyris-Flare, and Gilius Thunderhead for help. And another righteous adventure.
It's Golden Axe II and it's totally awesome. This sequel carries on the Golden Axe tradition in grand style, with more magic, new battle moves, and sinister enemies. There's nothing dull about this fast-paced cart.
Which character will you play? There's Tyris-Flare the Amazon, who can swing a mean sword, has a back flip attack that gets her out of tight spots, and is an expert with fire magic. Ax-Battler the Barbarian is handy with a sword, levels enemies with a powerful upper swing, and can unleash tornadoes. And Gilius Thunderhead the Dwarf wields a mighty battle axe, which he also uses for spinning kicks, and has the power to call forth giant hailstones. Golden Axe II has six stages of non-stop action you can play alone or with a friend. Between the regular game stages you take on bonus stages where you can stock up on those indispensable magic books, bread, and meat by defeating wizards. Sharpen your fighting skills in The Duel, a 15-stage battle that pits you against opponents of progressively increasing power. Or Duel it out against a friend.
Look for strange but highly useful creatures known as Bizarrians. If you can steal them from your enemies, hop on and you're immune to attack!
Be forewarned: your journey will be filled with danger. You'll face minotaurs, skeletons, demons, a headless knight, and ultimately (if you survive), Dark Guld himself. The time to start is now; the Golden Axe awaits.
Along with the normal game, a mode entitled the Duel will test your mettle in a series of battles. Your character will be forced to fight in one arena against increasingly difficult enemies until they (or you!) are defeated. As in the original, you will be graded on your performance in battle, so keep that sword sharp!
In this sequel to the arcade and Genesis hit Golden Axe, new skills and magic have been added to each character to help your chances of survival. Slash, kick and throw your enemies as you press on through the game's eight levels. Mount various dragons to either tail-swipe or burn the enemy to a crisp. Once you have reached the end of a stage, a large boss or two will try to make life more difficult.
The Axe Is Back!!
The people at Sega have been hard at work working on a sequel to one of the original Genesis games - Golden Axe. They've brought back the same characters and revamped them with new magic and special techniques, and they stuck them in new levels and put them up against a cast of even more deadly and powerful enemies. You are the only one who has the power to save the land from this evil shadow over the land.
