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
