I picked this one up after borrowing my cousins copy of Simon's quest and thinking this seems pretty much the same but cheaper. I was very very right! You are supposed to be a fencer with a sword that strangely looks like Simon's extended whip. You are going from castle to castle battling through the mission with your bird friend and then doing a boss battle. Each boss or zone has a particular weapon that everything is weak against. I guess that gives it a bit of a megaman influence but it seemed to be pretty light. The first boss you use your bird to take out in the most boring fashion possible.
After each villain you get a new weapon and a jewel for the end of the game. This was were the game got weird, it threw a logic puzzle at you. Honestly that was just strange, the only other game I have ever encountered a logic puzzle in was Centauri Alliance. Its just an odd thing to get in a video game, Stop now work this out! Ok i am actually very good at them and it was not problem but just odd!
