    Spelling correction of the word "Assohles", I fixed the typo and changed it to "Assholes". I also capitalized the words "French", and "English" in the description section. I got the following errors when I attempted to submit my corrections so I had to download, resize, and upload/change the images as well: 1.

Samurai Sword

Family Computer Disk System

Game Description:

Samurai Sword is a graphic adventure title, similar to Shadowgate or Uninvited. Your character is the last remaining warrior who’s fighting against the dark priest Soron, and the game opens with you getting your ass handed to you. You wake up in a forest filled with elves, crazy old geezers, a barkeeper and his daughter. And a bird. Yes, one bird.

Still, I’ve got a soft spot for graphic adventure titles, and as far as the genre goes I’ve played much worse. The graphics are decent, the puzzles are fairly intuitive - I never got stuck for more than five or ten minutes, they’re mostly pretty easy - and although the music can get a little repetitive at times, it’s easy enough to tune it out. It even manages to add a few “fights” to it! I played through the entire first area - the forest - in about half an hour or so, and saved at the start of the second area - a desert - when the game gave me ERR 07 which no doubt was because I hadn’t yet figured out NNNesterJ’s FDS disk swap keys. I’ll probably go back to it now that I know what they are, though! It really is a decent little game, I strongly recommend it!
