El Viento (エル・ヴィエント Eru Viento?, from Spanish meaning "The Wind") is a 2D platform game developed and published by Wolf Team for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis game console in 1991. It is the second in a trilogy of Earnest Evans and Annet Myer games, which also includes Earnest Evans and Anett Futatabi.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

El Viento is a platform game. The player has access to an endless supply of boomerangs and eventually up to five spell attacks.

Plot[edit]

The game shares the same fictional universe with Earnest Evans, and happens several years later. It also features many references to H. P. Lovecraft's esteemed Cthulhu Mythos.[4]

New York City, 1928. A mad religious leader known as Henry seeks to awaken the ancient and malevolent god Hastur. A sorceress named Restiana offers herself to Henry as a sacrifice for a cause which will bring the inevitable down fall of mankind.

There are some people that have descended from Hastur's ancient bloodline, one of which is the young Peruvian sorceress, Annet Myer. With some assistance from Earnest Evans, Annet attempts to stop the cult from resurrecting Hastur using the very spells of this bloodline.

Reception[edit]

German magazine Video Games gave the game an overall score of 68%.[5]
