I love finding different retro games and presenting them to Family Friendly Gaming Universe. Astyanax is one such video game. I will admit I am not impressed with this side scrolling 2D hack and slash video game. Enemies repawn way too quickly, and there are way too many cheap hits. We must back track quite a ways whenever a cheap hit kills us.

We have quite a bit of health in Astyanax on the NES. We need it too because it is easy to get hit over and over again. The power level for the sword is interesting, but really makes the game even tougher. The storyline is predictable and filled with holes. A fairy transfers us to her world to save the princess. Only the princess can send us home.

The music in Astyanax is actually cool to listen to. The graphics had numerous glitches. The difficulty of Astyanax is up there. This is a game I have no interest in playing ever again. I am glad there were never any sequels to Astyanax (that I know of). Magic is a part of the fantasy world of Astyanax. Only one player at a time can get frustrated playing Astyanax.
