After the fantastic intro of the game, the story begins in a fantasy world where a bad magician Anthrax summons a Demon in order to take over everything. The Demon calls all his evil powers and hordes of strong creatures. Kingdom's Princess is lost and the King fears that the Demon took her away. You are the only one who can help find the Demon, destroy him, bring the Princess back and put an end to Anthrax's plans. The way is extremely difficult though. You face traps, flying creatures, giants and finally the Demon himself. This game is one of the hardest ever made and one of the graphically advanced for the Amiga, ST and PC (DOS). All controls are responsive and the game tasks are entertaining and I must admit that, this is a very playable title for the Atari ST computers! Graphics/Sound:
The Atari ST version followed the Amiga one year later along with PC (DOS) version. This version shows that people from Readysoft managed what the Psygnosis people should have done in Shadow Of The Beast series for the Atari ST. I mean, from the very start to the end you will be astonished by the beautiful graphics, bright colors, parallax scrolling and the variety of them. The ST version runs at 320x200 pixels with (tricky) 50+ colors on screen! Scrolling can get jerky sometimes but we forgive the ST since it didn't have a Blitter chip to the early STFM versions, so the frame-rate is at 16,6 fps only at times.
Sonically (in main levels where you run) the ST uses chip sound FX and music but it's very well composed by David Whittaker. In some levels with big bosses, you listen to chip music and digitized SFX while in others you have fully sampled music and digitized SFX (Amiga-like)!
