Conan is a side-scrolling action video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System released in 1991, it was developed by System 3 Software and published by Mindscape. While it features the Conan the Barbarian character, it is a simple adaptation of a computer game called "Myth: History in the Making" [1].

Storyline[edit]

In this single player, side-scrolling, platform game you control Conan, in the NES version, on a quest, ordained by the Gods, to destroy various mythological creatures, under the control of the sinister Dameron [2].

Reception[edit]

The game was almost universally panned for its poor graphics and control. The Ultimate Console Database used words like, "ugly", "sad", "uninspired" and even, "crap" in its review of the game [3].
