Wizards & Warriors (Nintendo Entertainment System, 1987)
About this product
|The wizard Malkil was perhaps the best the world had ever seen. Then evil overtook him. He has since abducted Kuros' beloved Princess. But Kuros is a brave warrior, and he is about to show Malkil what he's made of.|
In Wizards & Warriors, you control Kuros as he makes his way through the land of Elrond on his way to freeing the Princess. An armor-clad knight with the Brightsword, Kuros must make his way through seven realms of Elrond and fight 39 different types of enemies before his climactic battle with Malkil at Castle IronSpire.
After defeating a boss at the end of each realm, the warrior will free a captive fair maiden. Along with his Brightsword, Kuros has access to special weapons and items such as the Dagger of Throwing and the Boots of Force. Kuros will need all of the firepower he can get if he is to be successful in defeating Malkil and rescuing the Princess.

It's hard, it's old, it's wonderful. As wonky and frustrating as this game can be, it had me hooked for hours at a time. The music is incredible! You are a dumb guy wearing armor, the only thing that you know how to do, is jump around and swing your bastard sword wildly! Gameplay is basically just jumping around weird, vertical stages, learning enemy patterns, and collecting gems to enter the boss area. The real star of Wizards&Warriors though, is the setting and atmosphere. Gotta love fantasy.

I decided to buy this game because we recently bought an old Nintendo and I use to have this game when I was a kid. I loved playing it then and I love playing it now. It takes me back to my childhood. You gotta love that!!

A Must-Have, NES Classic!
This is a classic. A must-have for the NES enthusiast. Not just a side scroller, Wizards & Warriors takes you up, down, in and out in an epic adventure through dark forests and sinister caverns. The action elements are paired with role-playing aspects such as the collection and use of magic items and treasures. This classic game spawned a best-selling trilogy and is enjoyed by many still today. The gameplay is signature as you will find out when you get your legs in this game. The big jumps and poking enemies with your weapon is almost comical yet SO serious. This game is intense and even frustrating at times. But this is for the good. It is a challenge and a game you need to be able to say you have played.

Great game from my youth. Just hard enough to be fun and tough but not make you wanna throw the whole system out the window. I think these older games are more challenging because we have all be spoiled with checkpoints and saves. Try to sit down and beat an old game. You will be surprised.

Wizards and Warriors - NES
The Wizards and Warriors games stand up as some of the best the NES has to offer. The games are well sorted and look, feel, and play great. In addition to providing a good core gaming experience they all have awesome music and the difficulty is just about right.<br><br>If you have an trusty old NES in the house I highly recommend you run out and grab a copy of any or all of the games in the series.
