RASTAN SAGA / Taito / Arcade

First of all, I love this game's introduction. It establishes the unique character of Rastan so well. Most fantasy heroes are chumps, they settle for some crap post as Captain Of The Guard as a reward, or a chaste kiss from the Princess, or some nonsense. Rastan, on the other hand, knows he has The Kingdom over a barrel. Nigga is takin' ALL the treasures. Not just your Goblet of Yendor or Gem of Foozle, you want to not get roasted by a dragon? Give it ALL up son. Get buck nekkid kingdom.

Unfortunately it sticks to Taito's usual 80s arcade philosophy ... make the main character move all slow and stiff and pack the game with cheap hits aplenty.
