They’ve been ravaging the country like a plague of locusts for over a year and are frightening the people with their scary get-up. Most people still think they are monsters. But they are only in disguise. While you were away catching a runaway horse, these monsters stormed the castle. The King is injured and a woman named Katerina has been kidnapped. She is the sister from one of the King’s guards. The bad thing is that you are in love with her after all.
So the player needs to go on a long and bloody march through the country to rescue Katarina.
The player fights his way through 19 levels. Various weapons will be available. They can be found in different levels. Everything begins moderately and you need to find some keys and a sword.
