Tip: Level 1 First Guard

In the Megadrive version you can pass the guard without killing him in seconds and you will finish much quicker than you do in the DOS version but it counts for the Megadrive version alone. What you do is you place yourself by walking on jumping up on a certain somewhere in the second room below the first room, then do a running jump just before the guard stabs and immediately do another running jump. The sword will seemingly have gone through you, but you have skipped him cleverly alive. Not only does this technique skip most guards, but when you do it once, it is counted as a cheat that grants you the ability to draw you sword automatically when an enemy is facing you. It will be a bit frustrating in the first few tries trying to skip a guard, but once you get into practice you can try and create your shortest time record in the Megadrive version.

Just download the game, install it and run the shortcut on your desktop (it runs the game rom using the Fusion 0.1d Genesis emulator).

This version is really very sluggish - the load times between the screens don't help either. It's strange that on many of the console versions, the controls don't feel right at all, compared to how well the PC/Mac/Amiga ones handled. And when you fight a guard it's like a game of luck-it's really hard to parry an incoming attack and also hard to hit the guard.
