Rastan Saga II (ラスタンサーガ2), known in Europe as Nastar and in North America as Nastar Warrior (except for the North American Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version, which was known as Rastan Saga II) is a hack and slash platform arcade game developed and released by Taito in 1988. It is the sequel to Rastan Saga (released simply as Rastan in North America).

Gameplay[edit]

Rastan Saga II is a side scrolling hack-and-slash-em-up where you take the role of a barbarian who tries to defeat the evil wizard. The controls of Rastan consists of an eight-way joystick and two buttons for attacking and jumping. Unlike the first installment, the player is now able to swing Rasta's sword in multiple directions. By using the joystick in combination with either buttons, the player can determine the height of Rastan's jumps. There are a total six rounds, each consisting of two areas: an outdoor scene, and a castle hall where the player must confront the stage's boss. The backgrounds of the outdoor areas feature broad landscapes with changing sunlight effects with detail. The game's bosses include Medusa, a Gladiator Centaur, and the final boss, the Dragon.
