Review of 'Karnov'

Rating:5 User: Alessandro Grussu

A superb conversion of a not-so-well-known Data East coin-op featuring a fire-breathing Russian on a dangerous path leading to the long lost treasure of Babylon guarded by a fearsome dragon.

Karnov is a huge game - 9 large levels full of enemies and traps, no less - and features large, colorful and defined graphics, although 1-character block moving does not make animation and scrolling very smooth. However, there is so much variety and surprise in this title that you will be hooked to the screen just to see what comes next.
