View Full Version : Searching for an old game

I just remembered about this: the first game I ever played on a computer, back in the 4th grade. :D

It was a 2D fighting game. It was Mario-style, meaning you were scrolling around a map from left to right kicking ***, until you met the bosses.
You could choose between 4 characters, one of them being a green elf IIRC. Each of them had a special ability; for example, one could quake the earth, another summoned thunders etc..

You could play 2 at one keyboard; while player A was walking the normal ground, player B was walking on some sort of a fence. (I think)

I briefly checked out Abandonia, but the titles and the screenshots don't look familiar.

Can anyone help? :D

EDIT: Golden Axe could be a match, but I'm not completely sure.

This Golden Axe?


And 4th grade gives me no frame of reference. What year was that?

1998 :)
I specified the 4th grade for nostalgia reasons, without thinking about the time frame. Silly me :lol:

So was it Golden Axe or no?

It has a green dwarf btw.

The only thing is that Golden Axe has 3 characters. Golden Axe 2 has 4 characters.

Yes, I think it's Golden Axe; I'll try it out in a couple of days and see.
