This is the sequel to Wizards & Warriors trilogy. You play as #Kuros
and you are again tasked with defeating Malkil, who has returned in form of the four elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. However he must assemble the four parts of the Ironsword guarded by each of the elemental beings.
The game in divided into four parts with each element heavily influencing the levels dynamics. You must find a golden artifact and give it to the animal king in order to reach the boss. The gameplay is unchanged but the graphics and music look and sound better than the original game. You can also visit shops to buy and upgrade your armor which is new to this game.
The game is also much harder due to longer levels and rarity of health items in the game. The game is also famous for having #FabioLanzoni
on the cover as a buffed out warrior, however Kuros wears a full set of armor.
This game is difficult and frustrating yet very playable. The gameplay, once you get used to Kuros’ short reach and hard to hit flying enemies becomes a bit easier once you start to buy better armor and there is a password feature as well.
I didn’t like this game as a kid because of its difficulty but later on I did enjoy it. I’m a sucker for #Fantasy
games and this one is no exception. There is definitely a challenge and I screamed a lot but managed to beat the game. This is a pretty cool action platformer and my second favorite in the trilogy with the first one being my favorite. Overall I rate this game a 7 out of 10.
