Spectrum

Fighting Warrior

 

Stephen Cargill may not be a name that many recognise, but he programmed two of the games that I first got with my Spectrum back in ’85, Sir Lancelot and this flick screen beat ’em up. Playing the titular warrior, the game flick-screens horizontally, with each screen containing an enemy that the player must defeat using his sword.

Arrows occasionally fly across the screen from an unseen assailant and must be jumped over or ducked under which can prove quite troublesome in the heat of combat. Eventually you travel to a cave where assorted demons must also be despatched. With a graphical style similar to Melbourne House’s legendary Way of the Exploding Fist, Fighting Warrior unfortunately boasts none of that game’s move complexity, despite the addition of a weapon. Nevertheless, it’s playable enough, especially for BEU fans.
