Based on the movie. Willow consists of various action sequences which recreate different scenes from the movie including an escape from the dungeons, lost in the ice caves, escaping from guards in the woods, and others. The player can go through all the sequences in order, or read the story in the form of a scrolling manuscript and click on keywords to jump to a particular action sequence.
Willow is an oldie action game based on LucasFilm's fantasy movie of the same name starring Val Kilmer. Not a classic, but an interesting movie conversion with some nice ideas. The game faithfully follows the movie's script, casting you as Willow, a gnome who is assigned to protect a baby destined to end the black magic reign of evil Queen Bavmorda.
The game consists of five parts, all of them being completely different mini action games. The plot progresses via cut-scenes that are shown between these segments. Sadly, none of these sub-games is executed well enough to capture anyone's interest. Technically, though, I was quite impressed by the Ice Caves part where you race down a tunnel. The graphics in that section are quite impressive for its time-- too bad the other sections just aren't as much fun. Recommended only if you're a fan of the movie. For a better conversion, though, play the RPG of the same name that CAPCOM released in 1989 for the NES instead.
