Description

Skyblazer, released in Japan as Karura Ou, is a platform video game published by Sony Imagesoft, released in early 1994 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It involves the Skyblazer hero searching for Ashura, the Lord of War, who had kidnapped the sorceress Ariana. Skyblazer was obscure at the time of its release, but has nevertheless received respectable reviews from those who have played it.



There are a total of 17 levels (with a few more stops on the map where the elder gives passwords to the player) and ten bosses (including the final boss, Raglan; the other nine bosses must each be fought twice, since they reappear immediately before Raglan). An overhead map allows for movement between levels, including back to ones already completed, and its slight non-linearity allows one to skip some levels (at the cost of the magic spells and other powerups obtainable in them).



Most of the levels are side-scrolling, but there are some levels involving flight, either automatically scrolling or in Mode 7, where the player can grab crystals towards extra lives but will exit the level upon touching a spike and falling. Also, some levels expand on the usual platform structure by including waterways whose paths can be varied with switches, and there are areas with rotating towers. Many of the bosses also use extensive Mode 7, expanding and rotating around the screen or coming in the form of rotating walls.
