Crossed Swords™

“Hack and Slash” or “Hack and Slay” refers to a type of gameplay that emphasizes combat. Action role-playing games form a loosely defined sub-genre of role-playing video games that incorporate elements of action or action-adventure games, emphasizing real-time action where the player has direct control over characters. A mixture of these games was introduced in arcade games as well.

Crossed Swords™ is one such arcade game. It is a hack & slash, action, RPG arcade game developed in 1990. The game allows cooperative gameplay with up to two players on the same screen. Only the player characters’ silhouettes are visible on screen as wire-frame models.

The Gameplay

The gameplay of the game is very easy. For a fantasy RPG, Crossed Swords™ is simple to play, but requires correct timing and movement to progress. The player wields both a weapon and shield. The basic rule for the game is to defend first before striking. You just need two control buttons to use the weapons and to defend yourself.

Crossed Swords™ has an interesting storyline. Deep within the mountains of Graisia, the Demon Warlord Nausizz rises and attacks the land of Belkana. However, a brave warrior called “The Knight of the Journey” comes a long way on a quest to stop these monstrosities. As the knight is being briefed by the king on the problems they face, an elite dark knight appears and kidnaps the princess. The knight fights his way through the enemy lands and comes face to face with Nausizz. As the knight defeats Nausizz, he transforms into a fiendish demon dragon. The knight slays him and escapes the collapsing castle.


The player has an option to skip the first and second chapters freely.

Difficulty Levels

The knight has to go through different lands to reach his final destination. If the player loses all the available lives, the game ends.

Interface and Controls

Use the arrow keys to move your character and a control button to fight against the enemies.

Crossed Swords™ has an interesting plot which sets it apart from other action arcade games.
