Personal review

Perfecto juego para dedicarse a matar orcos, peca un poco de simplista en su planteamiento RPG, pero por lo menos la acción es directa y entretenida y los enemigos nada desdeñables desde el principio.

Each day, more good townspeople of Green Row have been mysteriously disappearing, and beleaguered King Weeden summons the knight Sir David to investigate. Armed with his wits and his sword, Sir David must find the cause of this strange evil and save the citizens of Green Row before things get any worse. Take the role of the brave knight in this action RPG and get to the bottom of the mysteries of Green Row as you fight enemies, solve puzzles and use your best combination of brains and brawn to save the kingdom.

From the american game box:

Fight your way through a dungeon of evil! Innocent people are vanishing, victims of horrifying magic. You, a master swordsman, are challenged to save them! Only your sword and razor sharp mind will help you survive the lethal labyrinth, rescue the people and save the kingdom!

* Brutal real-time arcade style fighting against legions of gruesome and deadly dungeon monsters!
* Incredible 3-D graphics make the action real!
* Solve intricate 3-D puzzles or perish!
* Save up to four games so you can fully explore the expansive playing environment.

Billed as an RPG, but really more of a puzzle game with some action and spells and hit points. Definitely the weakest of all of Treasure's games, but probably still enjoyable for those who like mind-bending mechanical puzzles. This game has some of the coolest bosses in any game on the Genesis.
