Blades of Vengeance Description

Blades of Vengeance is a fantasy platform game for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. It was developed by Beam Software and published by Electronic Arts. In it, one or two players can select one of three warriors to fight through a large range of platform levels in order to stop a war monger known only as The Dark Lady.

At the beginning of the game, the player (or players) choose from one of three warriors under a god's service. The players could choose either of the three:

The Huntress: a voluptuous swords-woman with even movement, strength and attacks.

The Warrior: A muscular man with an axe and the best attack, but limited range and strength.

The Sorcerer: A haggard old man armed with a staff that had the best ranged attacks, but was the weakest of the three in strength.

From there, they thrown into the levels one at a time with a warning about the boss at the end of each one. The player/s could collect items such as silver coins, potions and magic they could access in their inventory through the pause screen. While still in the pause screen, the players could get a better view of their surroundings by holding the C button and moving the screen around the player character with the directional pad. All of the levels were large enough to explore and many of them have secret areas that would award the player with additional pick-up items.

The levels were divided into three portions with the third being the boss level, similar to Sonic the Hedgehog. After every boss battle, the players were taken to a shop where they could spend their silver coins on additional items for their inventory for the next levels. The players had a limited number of lives, but no continues; once the lives were gone, it was Game Over.
