  • Mystery game

    Hi all, happy to be here! I have been racking my brain trying to remember an arcade game title. It's a side-view fighting game with the player controlling a swordsman against the computer who controls a different creature at each level. One of the creatures had a snakes body instead of legs and the tip could be chopped off. It was set in a coloseum. I had played this game around 1990. Somebody please help end my torment.

      Kinda sounds like Barbarian (or maybe Barbarian 2) on the C64/Amiga

      If it was a platformer, it could have been Magic Sword...http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?...=&game_id=8496
      ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

                Altered beast was a continually scrolling game. The game I'm looking for does not continuously scroll, similar to other fighting games in that respect such as street fighter, mortal kombat, etc and the guy has a sword.

                    Fighting Fantasy?

                    That was the Japanese name. The US name was the laughable "Hippodrome":

                            I think Elvis has hit the nail on the head. The other games suggested are all horizontal scrollers.
                            I'll have to get me a mutant fighter one of these days use to love that game.

                              That's it - Fighting Fantasy! Elvis you are the man, the king has left the building. Thank you so much! I have been looking for this game for months. I have been collecting the games that I played as a young man for some time now and this was the only one I didn't have. Thank you again and thanks to everyone for responding. Cheers. Thanks also to Mickey juice.
