Sabre Wulf is a video game for the Game Boy Advance starring Sabreman from the ZX Spectrum series of games. A combination of platforming and puzzle game elements, Sabre Wulf encourages the player to think before they progress as they use Sabreman's unique menagerie of animals to make their way to Sabre Wulf's many lairs. Once the player has snatched the booty from under the 'Wulf's nose, it's a race back to the safety of Sabreman's tent. Sabre Wulf has numerous references to Rare's Ultimate Play The Game roots. The more obvious ones are the worlds, which are all named after various Ultimate titles. Other references include the character Cookie and an Atic Atac rug on the floor of the town hall.
