Rules are simple. After each round ends, the player with the lowest score is eliminated and we continue playing rounds until one individual remains atop the carnage. Having the top score isn't necessary yet, just try not to have the lowest score. If more than one player or players tie for the lowest score, the player with the best average finish from the previous rounds will move on. Good Luck!

Woah, I've never heard of this one, but based on that box art and screenshot, it would have absolutely been a "must have" as a kid.


Oh,  BITD,  This game blew my mind!!! 


It was one of those "Crash" Priced Bargain games I bought....


PS:  Although it's not hard,  I do recommend reading the manual on this one.

17,785 pts.  Wish I had more paralyze spells on this level!  Spending more time running away than fighting on this one, but you eventually run into things you cannot outrun.  Was being chased by 3 different fast things at the same time when they caught me.  I felt like the Blues Brothers being chased by the cops.  Found a jeweled coffer on level 5 or 6 (I think it was 5) that bumped my score from 8k to 13k!

How do you use the bow in this game?  read the manual and it makes it seem all simple, but even when I "select" bow, he just waggles the sword.

Go thru bag (press 2) to find bow,arrows,magic arrows and then side button to select.


Prees 1 twice to fight with bow & arrows.

Well, I feel like an idiot now.  So that's how you use the arrows!  Just tried it and it works.  I played all these years without ever firing an arrow.  😆
