Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder
The Revenge of Death Adder
|Genre(s)||Hack 'n' slash|
Despite the popularity of past entries being released on the Genesis, the game was never ported to the Saturn, which instead had a port of Golden Axe: The Duel. This was presumably due to the arcade port having poor sales.
The player characters are Goah the giant, Stern the barbarian, Dora the Kentauride, and Little Trix, a young elf lad who carries a pitchfork. None of the characters from the first game are playable, although Gilius Thunderhead from the first game rides on Goah's back. The main enemy is once again Death Adder. Multiple players could cooperate to complete wrestling moves on one enemy. Depending on the cabinet, the game allowed up to two, three or four simultaneous players.
As well as introducing multiple paths to the franchise, the magic aspect was adjusted. Though still found in the classic Golden Axe pots, the magic spells did not increase in power with the number of pots collected but required a set number to work. The Revenge of Death Adder was the only Golden Axe game in which one of the magic attacks was not offensive, as Trix grew apple trees with fruit that replenished health. The players are allowed to choose different pathways at two two-ways crossroads. Depending on the version, the unchosen paths are skipped entirely or have to be passed later in the game.
