O brave knight, save us from the Demon Lord and his minions! He has seized your love, the Princess, and carried her away to his dark delvings. Can you fight your way through the many enemies and obstacles in you path to save her - and her kingdom? Ported from the megahit arcade original.

Colorful graphics and awesome gameplay. Two gripes, though. First, once you jump, you're committed to a landing spot even if an enemy pops up there. Second, after clearing the first six stages, you have to go back and play through them a second time. Still, it's worthy of mention in the same breath as Sonic.
