Astyanax is a side-scrolling platform game. The controls are fairly simple: the A Button makes Astyanax jump, the B Button will attack with an axe called Bash, and a combination of up and attack will perform a special magic attack. The game also contains a few role-playing elements, such as weapons upgrades. It had a unique feature (for the time) of a bar that grows between attacks; the length of the bar determines how much damage Astyanax will do with his next attack. If one attacks rapidly, one's hits will do little damage, much unlike most games where a rapid succession of hits would all be equally damaging. A very similar system would be used in Secret of Mana some years later.

Additional Information

As a 16-year-old sleeping in algebra class, you're dreaming of a land where a beautiful, magical princess has been captured and needs you to save her from an evil wizard. You awaken to find yourself on the planet Remlia where Princess Rosebud has been captured by Blackhorn the wizard. Since only you can stop him and rescue her, this isn't dream any more. In Astyanax, it's up to you to battle your way through twelve stages of vertical and horizontal scrolling action by choosing you weapons (axes, spears, and swords), and commanding your spells (Bind, Blast, and Bolt). And you'll need it all to fight your way to Blackhorn. So like it or not, your dreams have come true. If you don't save Princess Rosebud, Remlia is doomed.

Controls: Gamepad/Joystick

Box Description

SJALECO
THE
WARRIOR
OF REMLIA
RETURN TO THE AGE OF MYTHS
AND MAGIC, DEMONS AND DRAGONS!
Sure, you've travelled some strage terrain in your
video game journeys, but wait till you see where
Astyanax takes you!
In your pursuit of the evil wizard Blackhorn and
his captive, Princess Rosebud of Remlia, you'll
encounter terrors that would frighten the Gods
themselves. The dreaded Thorndog, with his heart
of stone and face of bone. Monstrous Caesar, of
the Gremlin face and chicken feet. The endless
Maze of Castle Terenea. Plus, winged dragons and
metamorphsing monsters, sorcerers spells and
wicked wizardry, in a land that reaches far into the
past and the future.
It's the stuff myths are made of, a fantastic fight
stretching eons beyond any game you've ever
experienced. If you'd go to the ends of the Earth
for the ultimate adventure, Astyanax is your game!
