Aim of the game

Far in the future, the world has aged and reverted to barbarism, infested with mutants and permeated by magic. Out of this mayhem has come Rygar, the legendary warrior. His goal is to restore order to the world.

Game play

Rygar is basically a scrolling platform/beat-em up game. The rules are simple enough - kill the bad guys, jump across the gaps in the scenery and avoid the obstacle. Rygar fights with his sword and magic thunderbolts, and he can increase his powers by gathering the icons that are revealed when he blasts parts of the scenery.


"Acceptably playable, though early levels are too easy."

A distinctly poor game, too easy and with poor graphics.
