I can play that on my iPad. :lol:

I don't really see myself getting into Steam. My lifestyle barely permits console gaming, and I actually do the overwhelming majority of my gaming on handhelds. That said...if there were a handheld of some sort that gave me access to Steam's library...

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (360)

Another very cheap last-gen game that's really great. The game mechanics are somewhere between Infamous' climbing and SplatterHouse's brawling, but it makes for a great combo. The story is also a very cool take on the post-apocalyptic genre, with the world being immensely colorful and full of plantlife, although not really human life. That said, though the separate characters in this game can be named on one hand, they really tell a cool and interesting story with just the couple of them.

Verdict: Very highly recommended.

Sword Master is an odd little game. You can only face to the right, for one thing. There are also quite a few one-on-one fights in the game. There's some absolutely awful hit detection in spots with the platforming, although I found that if you hit the button quickly after you fall through a platform, you can jump again. The last stage is a giant boss gauntlet that's pretty rough. I used some save states at the final boss, but I'm pretty sure I could take it legit now. It's one of those B-tier titles that I'd love to find legit.

Also, it's basically a spinoff/sequel to Castle of Dragon, which was originally an arcade game, and also saw an NES version.

Yep, once I got used to Monkey's odd momentum, it was all lots of fun. I really enjoyed my time with the game. I'm typically a fan of Prince of Persia-styled games, so this one scratched that itch for me several years ago.

Ninja Theory's one hit wonder. Enslaved was great, I've hated everything else they've done and Hellblade looks lame. :roll:

That it is. I actually beat this one back in March of 2015. According to my HLTB I gave it a 5/10 with this review:
Sword Master is an action platforming game created by Japanese developers Athena and published by Activision in the USA during January of 1992. The player becomes a knight traversing a dangerous countryside to rescue a princess kidnapped by an evil sorcerer. Gameplay combines sword fighting with dangerous pitfall jumping. The swordplay seems influenced by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, but it isn't as good. The knight can also transform into an utterly useless magician who dies with godspeed at the hands of the many monsters. While the player can become good at sword fighting, the wonky nature of the jump physics guarantees many unfair deaths via pitfalls. Sword Master does have nice background art, a decent soundtrack, and large detailed enemy sprites. Unfortunately a lack of combat polish and truly bad platforming will make you want to snap this sword rather than master it.

Were you able to get any use out of the magician form?
