"Go forth, Kuros!"




Ah, Kuros, how thrilling is the life of a Knight of the realm of Elrond! Laying low mighty opponents such as eagles and bees, collecting keys from the tops of tall trees and learning to fall great heights with dignity. True there was also the rescuing of distressed damsels and the bribing of guards to reach the bosses but they pale in comparison to the mighy jumping that Kuros is capable of achieving.
Acclaim released this to the NES in 1987. This is a game I picked up with birthday money, taking the requisite thirty minutes to carefully scan the glass cases at Wal-Mart before making my decision. The game I played when I made it home was a little different than what I had imagined from the cover art and description on the back of the box. However, I grew to really like this game and consider it to be one of the toughest I've played.
