ROBIN: Lady Wilde and her infant daughter are the only survivors of a plane crash in the Amazon jungle. Recovering from the shock of the crash, Lady Wilde realises that her daughter has been kidnapped by the Amazons, a horde of woman warriors.

To rescue her, Lady Wilde must defeat every Amazon in her way in a battle to the death.

Legend Of The Amazon Women is little more than an average beat-'em-up: there aren't many moves, so it's quite easy to defeat your opponents. The animation is adequate, but not particularly impressive - like the game in general.

RICKY: Legend Of The Amazon Women is a combat cross of Gargoyle Games's Tir Na Nog and Melbourne House's Fighting Warrior. But it's dated and has little going for it. The animation is reasonable, but the uninteresting gameplay doesn't hold up.
