Stormlord reviews

Entertainment Weekly - "Brutally difficult to play, StormLord has superb 16-bit graphics and at least two features that set it apart from other action-adventure games. Yet all that most video-game fans have heard about it is how the folks at Sega insisted that a naked female statue in the game be electronically clothed for the sake of decency."

Zero Magazine issue 4 (1990) - "A game that has you shooting hearts at fairies I and catching their tears doesn't sound the sort of thing that's going to be a big hit in the Gorbbles. However, despite its 'slightly' cutesy theme this is a game for knights, not nappy-clad wonderboys.
Stormlord is an arcade adventure which requires guts and guile to release fairies and destroy an old witch called Badh. In fact it takes so much guile that I used up most of my 10 lives trying to release the first fairy. Well, the game does take some getting in to, but this makes it addictive rather than frustrating (though it can be that as well).
Graphically it has a dark, grim feel. It's also a bit weird; long distance travel comes courtesy of trampolines which launch you through parallactic space to your destination. An intruguing, imaginative adventure.
