Golden Axe (set 6, US, 8751 317-123A)

Arcade 1989 Sega Fighter 2.5D
Golden Axe is a sideways scrolling beat-em-up set in a traditional fantasy world, in which up to three warriors take up arms to rescue the kidnapped King and his Queen from the evil Death Adder.

The game's three different playable characters are an Amazonian warrior, a Barbarian hero and a Viking dwarf. Each character has a special attack move that is activated by pressing both JUMP and ATTACK at the same time. Also, double-tapping the joystick right or left will make the character charge and smash into opponents.

At certain points during the game, players will come across enemies riding creatures (such as dragons). If the player knocks the original rider from the saddle, the created can be mounted and used against the enemy.

At certain points during a level, as well as on the between-stage intermittent levels, Goblins appear carrying a sack on their back. Players can hit the Goblins causing them to drop food and magic potions - the latter of which are used to create a special magical attack that damages or kills all on-screen enemies.

Each of the game's heroes uses a different kind of magic: the Barbarian uses Earth magic, the Amazon uses fire magic and the Viking dwarf uses lightning magic. In addition: each player character also carries a different weapon: the Amazonian warrior and the Barbarian both use swords while the Viking dwarf wields an axe.

Golden Axe consists of 9 levels, although only 5 of these are true levels as every 2nd stage is a short intermittent level featuring only the sack-carrying Goblins.

Once Golden Axe has been beaten, an end sequence is a scene of a video arcade, in which the game's characters jump out of the arcade cabinet and chase the game's players out of the arcade and down the street.

Tips on Golden Axe (set 6, US, 8751 317-123A)

* Two Player Health Restoration : If a player's health is at zero (no life bar visible) when the bonus level/intermission ends, s/he will begin the next level at full health (three life bars). So if you CAREFULLY hack one another, you can restore your health. You should allow the other character to recover after each swipe, otherwise you may throw or kick and actually kill the other player.

- 7th July 2010: Smitdogg - We have recently been collecting more chips for decapping to send to the doc. As Guru mentioned earlier, I have located lots of other games that need their MCU dumped. Most or maybe all of them currently have things simulated that could be hooked up properly to run more like the original machines - including gameplay. BrianT sent me the MCU from Golden Axe (goldnaxe2 - 317-0112).

- 17th June 2009: Smitdogg - Thanks to Jmurjr and Incog we bought a Golden Axe board with a 317-123A for decapping, but when the board arrived, I noticed it wasn't the same Golden Axe PCB pictured in the auction, and thus isn't needed. So I'm trying to return it to the seller.
