OK I have to admit I don’t know much about this game at all besides watching some play through videos on the You Tubes. But it looks OK in that Rastan Saga / Black Tiger kind of way.
Once again the NES version, like the NES version of Bionic Commando, looks like fan fiction based on the arcade game. There’s top down maze exploration bits and talking to people bits and first person cave exploring bits. I don’t think there’s ‘bounce off the birds and skip the level’ bits though.
So, uh, Rygar ladies and gentlemen.
