Well, apparently that's Battle Axe. Let's take a look and see if that holds up. Including a look at the ultimate physical edition.

  • I don't see anything at all that reminds me of Golden Axe here besides the generic fantasy theme. Way closer to Arcus Odyssey, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and Chaos Engine since it's not a beatemup, it's a run'n'gun with a melee attack

  • I get a very strong "Elfmania" vide in here. Sure, it looks very nice, sounds very nice and has a nice first impression to it, but the gameplay itself leaves much to be desired. When the developers thought, it was a good idea to make it unforgiving hard, well, it wasn't a good idea. Also the comparison to "Chaos Engine" isn't right. The only things these games have in common is a great presentation and that both are overhead perspective action games. Chaos Engine has much more depth in the gameplay department.

  • If Battle Axe was released in the early '90s, which consoles do you think would have been able to handle it? I'm guessing the Neo Geo is the only one which would have been able to without major downgrades.

    • @Tempest Fennac Some arcade games back in the early 90's such as Batsugun, Metal Black, Gun Frontier, etc, were later ported to the Sega Saturn, so...

      Joey FordJoey Ford7 dagen geleden
    • @Joey Ford That's more mid-'90s being as it first came out in '94. I was mainly thinking about sub-32 bit systems for this (I'm curious about whether the 3DO and Jaguar would have been able to run it admittedly).

  • This honestly doesn't seem very good. Music seems nice, sprite collision seems terrible and gameplay seems nothing like Golden Axe or Gauntlet aside from that you have to blow up things the enemies spawn from. Doesn't have the magic or mounts of golden axe or the mazes of gauntlet. As far as I could see, anyway. And people are saying you can't move and attack at the same time and there are only 4 levels? Was this an ad? Your copy didn't mention any of the glaring issues that were happening even in the video you captured!

  • THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!!!! Thank you for introducing me to this game!! As soon as I started watching this, actually about 3 minutes in lol, I paused the video and got the game!!! I didn't know what I was in for but I KNEW it was gonna be a bit of good fun! But 267 dollars of fun... well I THOUGHT it would be, but after playing it a bit and only getting about half way through the dungeon and dying maybe 4 times, I decided to watch the rest of your video. That's when you explained it is ONLY 4 LEVELS!!! FOUR levels for TWENTY-SIX dollars?!?!? YIKES!!!!! I am assuming this purchase is going towards the dev's making a part 2 and actually making a FULL GAME... But anywho, I absolutely LOVE this game!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for introducing me to this game, it has brought back MANY memories of my childhood and I glad I went in for this one. It's TOTALLY WORTH THE BUY PEOPLE!!! HELP SUPPORT THE DEVS THAT ARE WORTKING THE HARDEST!!! :D

  • Proud backer of this project. From the 1st screenshots to the final product, I couldn’t be happier. This was one of the smoothest projects that I have been apart of. Would definitely back another project by this team in the future after my wonderful experience with this project. My only complaint is that backers should have received their product BEFORE retail release. Otherwise an all around “A-“ Grade.

  • I know they want to show off the pixel art, but in this video it looks like the camera is *way* too close. The characters are nearly 1/5th the vertical height of the screen? Spawners are more than twice the height of the characters? Areas look relatively tiny, and there seems to be barely any room to move in the cave section. I've a feeling I'd hate to play this two player, with the limited space and the various attack effects.

  • Stop pretending this game isn't junk. You can' even shoot while moving because they didn't feel like animating it. It's crap. You're better off with Shock Troopers, which it's actually far closer to than Gauntlet or Golden Axe. It's nothing like a beat 'em up.

  • Might pick it up on sale. Except for a few games, like Shovel Knight and Curse of the Moon, I quickly get bored by modern pixel games. Might play them for 20-30 minutes, and then not bother to play them again. Rather just play on my old 8-16 bit systems, when I need a dose of proper nostalgia. And yes Golden Axe is fantastic, it’s one I often go back to.

  • "Really shows off the graphics"...More like really shows some particularly laze marketing where they did nothing but print off the sprite sheets. I'm also unclear on what CRT their shader is supposed to mimic. It's pretty weird for the pixels color orientation to be mirrored like that (i.e. rgbgrgbgr).

    • As a commercial game that needs to sell, I'd kinda go the opposite direction - maybe tone down the male gaze bit a bit, but amp up the female gaze a ton to balance things out. I'd go for the The Mummy mix. Brendan Frazer's and Oded Fehr's appearances were VERY well appreciated, and none of the male fans were disappointed with Rachel Weisz's outfits (although one might argue that the low necktie outfit was peak lesbian gaze, but whatever). My point is - it's deliciously optimized eye candy for everyone.

  • I loved the 6-in-1 Pak for the Genesis. Golden Axe happened to be among the choices of games to play. What’s most interesting is that many of the games on that cartridge can actually be played with an Atari 2600 controller. The fire button maps as both A and C, leaving no way to press B or Start, but I’ve verified both Sonic and Streets of Rage are beatable this way if you choose your controller mapping wisely for the latter game. Golden Axe, though, suffers more from this compromised, challenging controller scheme.

    Yan HollidayYan Holliday14 dagen geleden
    • Yeah, it doesn't really share the same aesthetic or gameplay with either of those games. The cynic in me wonders if they decided to talk up Golden Axe and Gauntlet because if they called it a fantasy Chaos Engine there would be too many people asking "what's The Chaos Engine?", especially outside of Europe.

  • I wager it's only 1 or 2 lives and that's it because the game is only 4 levels long. Maybe there's something to be said for it not overstaying it's welcome in that respect? I'd honestly prefer a game of at least 8 levels, 3 lives, and 1 continue. I looked the game up while watching the video and, while it is a dazzling piece of eye candy, I can't see that $39.95 price tag on Limited Run justified for the sparse amount of actual content in the game ($40.86 if I buy a UK import on Amazon). A New Game+ that's designed to just kick your ass harder isn't much of an incentive either. You could have weaseled that much money out of me 30 years ago if this were a new Mega Drive/Genesis game but not so much now.
