In this video, we are taking a look at the classic retrogame Cadash for the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive). It is a port of a Taito arcade game of the same name, it released on home consoles in 1992. Cadash is an action platformer with some light RPG elements woven into the gameplay. It is a difficult game with aggressive enemies and other dangers that await the player.
The plot has you the player/s (you can play two players) going into the depths of Cadash on a quest to save the King’s daughter from the evil Balrog. As you progress through the many levels, you can gain experience points to advance your character’s level. This will improve your character’s stats. If you play as the mage, you will also gain new magic spells to use against the many different enemies and bosses.
The game features a great 90’s visual style with some inventive level design. The controls are decent and remenicient of games like Castlevania or Zelda 2 on the NES.
Overall, I recommend checking this game out, but be prepared for a difficult time.
