Throwback Thursday: Golden Axe II

Hello Everyone,

New Throwback Thursday will reflect on Golden Axe II. I know you are asking yourself why did I pick II and did not review I. Well while I had both, I truly enjoyed playing II. The game was released in 1991. The three playable characters from the first Golden Axe, Ax Battler, Tyris Flare, and Gilius Thunderhead, return in Golden Axe II. Basic plot is to save the people of the land by defeating the new evil clan, led by Dark Guld, and reclaim the Golden Axe, which is in his possession. The game features a total of seven levels: six scrolling levels and a final end of game boss battle against Dark Guild.

Golden Axe is the same hack and slash side scrolling set up as the first Golden Axe. You have the same thieves that come at night that you need to attack after they steal from you. There is also magic that can be utlized in the game. Ax Battler's has wind magic, Gilius Thunderhead has lightning, and Tyris Flare has her fire magic. I personally always played as Tyris as she was female. Any chance there was to play with a female character I immiediately embraced it. I remember going to the skating rink and playing the first Golden Axe in the arcade and I was so excited to get the second one for the Sega Genesis. Check out the walk through below.

What are your memories of this game?
