Golden Axe (ゴールデンアックス) is a side-scrolling, beat 'em up, hack and slash arcade video game released in 1989 by Sega and is one of the most well known arcade games ever made.
The game takes place in a Conan the Barbarian style high fantasy medieval world. (so i put a lot of fur on the armours) An evil, overgrown knight named Death Adder holds the king and his daughter captive and threatens to kill them and destroy the Golden Axe, an artifact of the land, unless he is accepted as the ruler.
Three warriors set out to avenge their losses at the hands of Death Adder and save the land while they are at it. The first one is a Dwarf, with an axe (I thought the dwarf was the main character thus why the game was called golden axe, but naaa, he just has an axe that turns out to be golden, nothing special) whose twin brother was killed by Adder. The second is a barbarian, with a broadsword, looking for revenge for the murder of his mother. The last is a hot chick, whose parents were both killed by Death Adder.
So once again like every arcade beat em up, this lot walk to the side of the screen killing everyone they see and kick midget thieves that make a road runner sound when kicked in the balls... beep beep
