Game Review

Targhan is a fantasy action adventure created by Silmarils originally for the Atari ST in 1989 and then ported to Amiga and MS-DOS.

The settings and graphics could remind you of Barbarian by Psygnosis, but Targhan is different and superior in some aspects. It is based on single screens: more than 120 backgrounds were created by the artists, and most of them are stunning. The character and enemy sprites are big and well-drawn too. Targhan is visually impeccable, but unfortunately, we can't say the same about the animations and the combat mechanics; otherwise, we would talk about a masterpiece.

The game can be played with a keyboard or a joystick. If you use the keyboard, use 1 to 9 on the keypad for walking, jumping, crouching, turning, or picking up objects (key three or joystick southeast to pick up things).

By pressing the Shift key, or the Fire button, you perform attacks with your sword, shuriken, or kicks. When you pick up objects, they will be displayed in an icon. You can press the function keys F1 to F5 to use or press F10 before selecting them to drop the items.

If you like sword and sorcery/barbarians settings mixed with action-adventure gameplay, Targhan is a game you must try.
