ROBIN: This Gremlin Graphics licence is based on the Fighting Fantasy books of the same name. It's split into three distinct subgames which are loaded separately.

The first features unarmed combat, the second pole fighting and the third sword fighting.

They're highly enjoyable and very addictive - this is my favourite of the beat-'em-ups featured here. The graphics are excellent, but it's the animation that really grabs the player. It's just so smooth. If you're going to get just one beat-'em-up, I can't recommend this enough!

RICKY: This is one of the best beat-'em-ups, with some great graphic routines. The action doesn't quite have the excitement of Barbarian, though.
