Hippodrome/Fighting Fantasy is a sword-fighter Game from Data East
Fighting Fantasy has highly creative enemies, which ranged from Giant Dragons to Lizard Men to Wizards. Fighting is not reduced to mere button bashing and a different strategy is required to beat every type of opponent. It also gives the option to buy weapons and some weapons are better suited to certain opponents.
You start off as an unnamed human warrior called to the Hippodrome to face some of the best fighters from all across the continent. You fight in sessions consisting of 3 opponents. You choose which one to fight first: a snake-tailed woman, a gargoyle, and a lizardman. After you beat all three you move on to the next session of 3 consisting of a dragon, a scorpion man, and a wizard. Then come the Twins - two humans wielding dual sickles. You have to beat them before you face the final opponent - a HUGE viking. Beat him and you are declared the Champion of the Hippodrome.
