Review of 'Thanatos'

Rating:5 User: MIC

This game is remarkable and really unique for several reasons. The great, big fire breathing dragon over a whole third of a screen, with separately animated head, tail, wings and claws; the beatiful parallax scrolling; the undeniably great atmosphere; but most of all, the fact that there's no energy bar, there are no lifes, the only indicator of your condition is a giant, beating heart! I've never seen anything like that in any other game.
Also the fact, that to beat the game you need to keep TWO characters alive, not just yourself... and you can't really affect the behavior of the witch, even though most of the time she's just clinched on your back.
But you will learn to dread those moments when a spider shoves her off your back and you need to turn around as fast as possible and quickly pick her up again, before one of the spiders crawls to her and eats her...

I've loved this game since I was a kid and I love it still.
