Wardner (original Japanese title: Wardner no Mori) is a platform game released by Taito in 1987. The player controls a character named Dover through various forest game levels in an attempt to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend from the evil Wardner. The simple run and jump controls are supplemented with the ability to throw balls of fire. The player collects gold coins throughout the game; at the end of each level, the coins are exchangeable for extra abilities.
The game was ported to the Famicom Disk System in 1988 in Japan. A 1990 port to Sega Mega Drive is titled Wardner no Mori Special in Japan. The North American version of the arcade game is alternately titled Pyros. The console game was never officially distributed in Europe, but the arcade game was commonplace.
