Realistic princess in need of rescue.
Have you got what it takes to be a hero? For the first time in video game history* the love of your life has been kidnapped and now you must go on an epic quest to rescue her. Standing between you and your princess are levels of deadly falls, cunning traps, painful weapons and crafty guards. You'll need to use all of your skill to run, duck and jump your way to the princess avoiding level after level of treacherous obstacles.
You start each level at the left side of the screen and your aim is to make your way the right side any way possible to continue on your way. Easy, right? Each level becomes increasingly more difficult with the earlier levels containing single obstacles like fiery pits of doom, armour-piercing arrows, burning boulders and angry guards but the later ones combining them all to challenge your puzzle solving skills and test your reflexes. Do you have what it takes to rescue the princess?
