(From the game flyer)

Attractive and realistic magic & graphics made possible through the utilization of the SEGA SYSTEM 32.

Due to various highlight scenes, and different course junction points depending on the stage, the player can experience a different excitement each time.

Colorful game actions, such as picking up and using an item, opening the doors, kindling a torch, opening a box, etc., are provided in abundance.
Well that pretty much sums up this game, the greatest of all beat-'em-ups

Trivia from Mame.dk Golden Axe page
'The kanji [Japanese character] on the title screen actually reads 'Senpu', meaning 'Fighting Axe'. This is an example of 'gikun', where Japanese artists use the phonetic value of a character to determine the game's name, and not the meaning of the character itself.'

This is not the same game as Golden Axe II for megadrive. They are completely different.

Probably the most under rated scrolling beat`em up of all time, widely passed off as more of the same but nothing could be further from the truth. It improves on the original in almost every way. Ask any [[game:Golden Axe]] fan, this is the best in the series.
