View Full Version : Golden Axe

Golden axe along with Sonic hit Xbox Live Arcade, and were released almost directly after the Microsoft portion of E3. I have also made a small achievement guide for Golden Axe to help some even thought it's a pretty basic game.

Just start a new game with the Dwarf and you will start with one potion already. So go around and collect 3 more then just press Y for the magic attack and you got it. You will have to collect more for the Barbarian and Amazon magic level achievements

Its not to hard because you can change the settings to give yourself 5 bars of life and stage 2 is just a bonus stage so just beat stage 1 and you got it. Just use the animals alot to keep away and do long range and magic attacks.

You can either start up a game with a friend and let them do all the work while you sit back or you can change the settings to 5 health bars and 5 lives and try to win that way. Make sure to use magic and use the cockatrice and dragons whenever possible and save often!

The "omni" achievement is easy to get. It's the one where you have to play all 3 characters. Start a game with a character then quit. Repeat for all 3 players and you've got it. Did it this morning and got the achievement.

Why are does it seem like arcade games take forever to get a forum link? Also Kraazie beat you to it, yesterday when he announced it.

perfect win isnt gonna be that bad I got to Death Adder last night with 3 lives left. Looks like your fellow player just has to cover your arse a bit. (damn that sounds bad.) Keep some spells saved and dont forget to jump and attack to knock the bastards back.

I used to have this for SAGA, but I'm not too sure if I'm going to download it for the 360.
