[edit] Background

The legend is back! This action packed adventure bring to life the greatest hero ever with jaw-dropping graphics and fully orchestrated soundtrack. It's what you've been waiting for.

Taking place on an Island in the Mediterranean Sea called Argus, Rygar: The Legendary Adventure, tells the tale of a noble warrior determined to save the Princess Harmonia and bring the Island of Argus back to a state of peace.

For his contribution and bravery during The Great Sea Battle, which ultimately brought the Island of Argus to victory, Princess Harmonia was honoring Rygar in a magnificent ceremony. During the celebration, ravenous monsters called "Titans" emerged from the land, destroying not only Rygar's homeland, but abducting his beloved Princess Harmonia.

In the midst of this chaos deep cracks were formed in the island's surface, creating a dark and mysterious underworld. Before realizing what was happening, Rygar was swallowed by this underworld.

While there, a Goddess approached and informed him that in order to destroy the Titans and save the Princess, he must depend on his almighty Diskarmor, which becomes the essential tool in his quest for victory. Armed with the Diskarmor, Rygar sets out on what will become a Legendary Adventure...

[edit] Gameplay

Gameplay is directed by use of the Diskarmor, an essential survival tool, used not only as a weapon but as a divine, spiritual artifact. Deadly spikes extend from its center allowing you to kill the enemy by hurling your weapon, or you can pierce your enemies to swing them around and destroy others in your path, slice through enemies that are suspended in mid air, swing the Diskarmor and slam it on the ground to shock enemies in your way, use the Diskarmor as a catapult to transport you from one destination to the next, and lastly, destroy the surrounding environments with the force of the mighty Diskarmor.
