Technoclash is an action RPG created by Electronic Arts in 1993 for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis.

Story[edit]

A world populated by wizards is invaded by a race of machines, causing havoc. Ronaan, a wizard, embarks on a journey after a magical staff is stolen from his homeland. It's up to Ronaan, Farrg and Chaz to prevent the destruction of their world as they travel through Las Vegas, a junkyard, a desert and the heart of the Machine Empire.

Gameplay[edit]

At the beginning of each level, the player can choose his partner: the magic apprentice Chaz or the mercenary Farrg.

Reception[edit]

The four reviewers of Electronic Gaming Monthly gave the game a 6.5 out of 10, deeming it "a poor man's Gauntlet". They commented that the variety of weapons and spells is good but that the game is hard to the point where it's impossible to derive enjoyment out of it, particularly criticizing that the backgrounds make it hard to see enemies and other hazards.[1] Swedish game magazine Datormagazin gave the game a score of 3/5.[2]
