Here’s a list of the levels for the first Golden Axe game, as well as the music (because the music was awesome). Just so you know, I first put all this information on Wikipedia, but then someone deleted it because it wasn’t ‘important enough’. What, music isn’t important? Well how about YOUR FACE isn’t important.
The player makes their way through Turtle Village as a shortcut to Death Adder’s castle.
Upon entering Turtle Village, the player finds the villagers under attack by Death Adder’s henchmen.
The village was on the back of a giant turtle, which took the player south across the sea. When the level starts, the player leaves Turtle Village and eventually fights a giant silver-armored knight.
In order to get past enemy lines, the player takes the “Fiend’s Path”, which is actually the back of a giant flying eagle.
The player jumps off the eagle and fights their way to the courtyard of the castle.
The player showdowns with Death Adder.
The rescued Queen tells the player that Death Adder was only taking orders. The player must make their way through a secret passage in the castle to find the puppet master. Note that this level only features in the Mega Drive and PC versions.
The player fights Death Bringer. As with the previous level, this level only features in the Mega Drive and PC versions.
The player is told that the land will revive in peace and the people will talk of their deeds as legend.
