Conan

The player controls Conan as he attacks the evil Volta in his castle fortress. Conan is armed with 10 boomerang swords. From time to time, Conan may be aided by an "Avian Ally" as he attempts to defeat Volta's sinister hordes, which included bats, scorpions, giant ants, fire-breathing dragons and floating eyeballs. The game includes seven diverse levels requiring the player to navigate lava pits, geysers, spike pits, and floating platforms. Along the way the player often needed to collect magic gems or keys in order to progress. In the game, Conan does not simply jump, he somersaults. If he falls, he launches into a full-scale dive. These effects, along with the diverse levels and detailed animation, made this game popular. Though seven levels is considered short by today's standards, since the game did not include any facilities to save, the seven levels usually kept most players occupied for some time. The players needed to conquer each level anew while attempting to defeat Volta. One original feature of the game's time was a close-up picture that would be shown upon the player's last death. For example, dying in the first level might show a close-up picture of a bat with the caption "bats in the belfry". Deaths in other levels would yield a picture of a hazard unique to that level. Hazard Captions Bats in your belfry Only a cleric can help you now Quest terminated (spike pit) There is no glory for you here To be continued A watery barrier You shuffle off defeated for now
