Each hit consumes power so you have to execute your hits carefully.

You start in the zone Undead Plains. After completing a level, you can move your player on the map to the next level.

In the game you will encounter merchants who sell items. With your collected coins you can buy items and then use them.

In your inventory you will find all items that you can use during the game.

Do you want a challenge? You can get two awards per level. Once you have collected all awards in a zone you will be rewarded with an achievement. There are 3 achievements in the game.

In the overworld map the awards are displayed for the completed stage.



The game tells the story of a baron who was once powerful but was unjustly banished from the kingdom. He was betrayed by a dark magician who sought the great, magical ore Idirium.

The magician cast a spell on the king, making him accuse the baron of high treason. The baron tried to reason with the king, but the dark magician's spell was too strong.

The baron was banished to the Undead Plains, where he was to live out his final days. But the baron wasn't ready to die. Taking up his axe, he swore to set off on a quest to clear his name and gain revenge
