Legendary Axe is a side-scroller action game by Victor Musical. The story of the game doesn't stand out as a masterpiece of the genre. Our hero, a warrior called Gogan, embarks on a long journey of revenge. His girlfriend was kidnaped by an evil demon and, armed with a powerful and mighty axe, he intends to bring her back. Special items hidden inside stone statues can help Gogan in his task. For instance, little wings can speed up his axe, masks increase its power and other items can refill his life bar. The axe can also be charged up and unleash more powerful blows, inflicting more damage to the enemies. The game counts six long stages and most of them offer different routes and intricate passageways the player can take.

Legendary Axe is a neat side scroller action game. After a few tries, players quickly realize they are not against any traditional action game here. Legendary Axe gets you to think and strategies your next move. Enemies and bosses sprites can be quite large on screen, however I am not a bit fan of the graphic design. (colors are a bit too flashy and some sprites look a bit odd to my taste). The music is also excellent and intensively atmospheric. Despite not displaying anything groundbreaking, Legendary Axe is definitively a classic of the 8bit era, entertaining, full of surprises.... and frustratingly hard to play.
