Game Review

Torvak the Warrior is a fantasy hack and slash platform game created by Core Design and published in 1990 for the Amiga and Atari ST.

The game is ispired to Rastan, an arcade game ported to several home computer platforms but that was never released for the Amiga or Atari ST. The main character is a barbarian who has to complete the 5 levels, killing all the enemies and the final bosses, using several power ups and the four weapons available. Torvak is not the best game by Core Design but during the year it acquired a consistent fan base.

I love Torvak!! This game feels like a bit of a guilty pleasure; I remember getting the demo on a CU Amiga cover disk and got the game soon after. It might not be the best looking game of the time, nor best example of a good platform game, yet I’ve always been drawn back to it. It's very playable, the levels are huge, and it is just the right difficulty level. Torvak himself is frustratingly slow at first, but with enough weapon power-ups and the right choice of weapon (avoid the Hammer!), he’s soon carving up the ghouls and weird beasts and thugs in no time at all. Sadly he’s no faster on his feet.
If anything, it lacks variety, and Torvak is a bit limited in his abilities – but that doesn’t stop this game still being great fun.
