They're really aren't enough medieval times button smashing, side-scrolling, fighter games, are there?

Yeah, this is just a Double Dragon-style side-scroller brawler game where you smash that sword button millions of times, but it stuck with me over the years. Perhaps the key location at my local 7-Eleven or the limited play time due to the cost of quarters or maybe just because I read Once and Future King at some point around when this game came out? The graphics are fine, the game play is fine, and the music is fine. The digitized fighting sounds are a bit over the top, but not ridiculous. The translations are sometimes bad, but that doesn't make the game less fun. Not amazing, mind you, but just empty-headed slashing fun.

Sword sword sword sword sword sword sword...
