I remember enjoying this game for months--since I couldn't finish it and master it that easily. It would take a while before I could master a level and be able to proceed to the next. Of course, there is no SAVE option, so if you die and run out of credits, you have to start all over again. Everytime I would be able to accomplish a level and face a new one, it always felt like adventure. One thing that appeals to me is that it's a medieval fantasy hack-and-slash type side-scrolling game.
This game allows you to choose between a dwarf, a barbarian, and an amazon warrior to save the King and the Princess from the clutches of evil. You'll be facing normal enemies and really big ones, riding on the back of dragons, and besieging castles. This game can also be played with two player, and that'll really be a lot of help to accomplish your mission.
I'd highly recommend this game. It's a classic for Sega Genesis.
