[NES Game] Rygar
Rygar is a video game created by Tecmo in 1986 and originally released for arcades in Japan as Warrior of Argus (アルゴスの戦士, Arugosu no Senshi). It is a sidescrolling platform game where the player assumes the role as the “Legendary Warrior”, battling through a hostile landscape. The main feature of gameplay is the use of a weapon called the “Diskarmor”, a shield with a long chain attached to it.
4.5 billion years have passed since Earth’s creation. Many dominators have ruled in all their glory, but time was their greatest enemy and it defeated their reign. And now a new dominator’s reign begins…
Information gleaned from console manuals reveals that the evil being Ligar has taken over the land of Argool, and Rygar, a dead warrior who has risen from his grave, must use his Diskarmor to stop him. In console versions clues and limited dialogue are given in the form of large, sage-like men encountered in green stone temples throughout the game.
