The original Wizards & Warriors game came out for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987 (before Japan!). I remember playing this game briefly at my neighbor’s house which was being rented by a group of college students who happened to have some of those early games.
Later in life, I ended up getting its sequel for either a birthday or a holiday. I was never good at the game, but the graphics were interesting and the music was outstanding (naturally so because it was composed by the legendary David Wise of DKC fame). I think I needed to use Game Genie to actually finish it. It certainly left an impression. You can read about it a little in my There She Blows article that details instances of wind in video games.
I chose the game’s protagonist, Kuros, for my late pixel art project. Enjoy!
