Wizards & Warriors X: Fortress of Fear retrospective: Westward ho | Game Boy Works #026

Youtube Video Description:

Welcome to the '90s! Sorry it doesn't get off to a better start. But alas, Wizards & Warriors X: The Fortress of Fear is about as mundane and insipid as 8-bit platformers come, a huge step back in quality and ambition from its two NES predecessors. Everything that made the first two Wizards & Warriors games notable is missing here, leaving nothing but a floppy-footed knight with a tendency to jump a little too vigorously. The first Game Boy title of the '90s, and the first Western-developed Game Boy game, is kind of a bust. Stay tuned for more tragedy in the '90s at www.gameboyworld.com.
