Golden Axe II (Genesis) storyline
Not long after the malign reign of the Death Adder has ended, another evil rises. The peace of the land has again been threatened, this time by ‘Dark Guld’, who was supposed to be imprisoned but apparently isn’t. He has instead now got his hands on the Golden Axe, and is using it for his own nasty purposes, and with his minions is causing much chaos.
So once more, Ax-Battler, the fierce barbarian; Tyris-Flare, the fearless Amazon; Gilius Thunderhead, the ferocious dwarf; get up to deal with the oppression, with their might and magic, and recover the Golden Axe.
Golden Axe II Gameplay
Golden Axe II is a side-scrolling arcade-style hack ‘n’ slash game, very similar to the first Golden Axe. The player is given a choice of three fighters: an axe-wielding dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead; a barbarian; Ax Battler, wielding a two-handed sword; and long-sword–wielding amazon Tyris Flare.
Each of the fighters has a unique magic which can be used at any time in the game to inflict damage upon enemies. Each player is given a set of life bars which are lost one by one if the player is hit.
