The IBM PC compatible version was released in 1990 in 256 colour VGA splendor.
Although the game will run on a 4.77 MHz IBM PC XT, at least a 16 MHz IBM PC AT is recommended for fluid scrolling and animations in VGA mode.
Challenging specs hey?
Here is an overview of the epic storyline:
Golden Axe takes place in the fictional land of Yuria, a Conan the Barbarian-style high fantasy medieval world. An evil entity known as Death Adder has captured the King and his daughter, and holds them captive in their castle. He also finds the Golden Axe, the magical emblem of Yuria, and threatens to destroy both the Golden Axe and the royal family unless the people of Yuria accept him as their ruler.
The player controls one of three Warriors. The first is a battle axe-wielding dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead, from the mines of Wolud, whose twin brother was killed by the soldiers of Death Adder. Another is a male barbarian, Ax Battler, wielding a two handed broadsword looking for revenge for the murder of his mother. The last is a long-sword-wielding Tyris Flare, an amazon, whose parents were both killed by Death Adder.
