Good old, fondly remembered Willow! A film I’ve not watched since I was a kid for fear of it actually being bad! This top-down, action RPG style game expands upon the movie’s story while still including familiar characters and areas.
Not copying….nooo….but ‘borrowing’ many elements of the NES Zelda games, control Willow and gain experience points as you battle enemies using swords, shields and magic!
Chat with NPCs and experience cut-scenes as you progress through the story!
Capcom Director Yoshiki Okamoto said that Willow was part of a strategy to use established characters to broaden the appeal of their games.
There were two other versions – one for the arcade (side-scrolling action) and one for home computers (rubbish mini-games).
