Golden Axe TV Commercial (Sega Genesis Version)

Golden Axe is a classic sideways scrolling beat-em-up set in a traditional fantasy world, in which between 1 and 3 warriors take up arms to save the King from the evil Death Adder. The 3 different player characters are an Amazonian warrior named Tyris Flare, a barbarian hero called Ax Battler, and a viking dwarf by the name of Gilius Thunderhead. Each hero uses a different kind of magic : Ax Battler uses earth magic, Tyris uses fire magic, and Gilius uses lightning magic. In addition : each player character also carries a different weapon : Tyris and Ax Battler both use swords while Gilius uses the Golden Axe itself.

Each character in the game has a special attack move that is activated by pressing both JUMP and ATTACK at the same time. Also, double-tapping the joystick right or left will cause the player to charge and smash into opponents. At certain points during the game, players will come across certain creatures (such as dragons) which, once their original riders have been knocked from the saddle, can be mounted and used against the enemy.

At certain points during a level, as well as at the end of each level, theives appears carrying a sack on their back. Players can hit the thievess causing them to drop food and magic potions.

Once the game has been beaten, the ending will show a view of an arcade where the characters 'jump out' of the game, run out of the arcade and down the street.
