Rygar is a game I really, really wanted to love as much as the likes of Contra, Mega Man 2 and Castlevania 3. It had it all – excellent gameplay, excellent controls, a relentless atmosphere (for the time) and nice looking graphics. Unfortunately, something, in the end, just decided to piss it all away. I was quite pissed in the end, though at times, I always wanted to save my progress because I didn’t know what to do at this instance (though unlike some games I know, I figured it out on my own in the end), but just couldn’t, because it doesn’t have that feature. That kills the game, but with today’s technology, is it really a recommended download? You be the judge.
Story: The fine (if somewhat barren) land of Argool had seen better days. The horrid and demonic Ligar, hidden within a floating castle, had sent his army of beasts and monsters throughout the land to steal hope from the general populace. Their only hope — the reanimated body of a valiant warrior.
