NAME: Bastard! Ankoku no Hakai-shin AUTHOR/VENDOR: Cobra Team/Kaneda RELEASED: 1994 TYPE: Fighting LANGUAGE: Japanese PREMISE: Based on the anime OAV about a 400-year old master sorcerer/fighter named Darshu (Dark Schneider in some translations) who is reluctantly drafted as a "good guy" in the battle against the powerful disciples of the imprisoned dark mage Anthrax. Originally created by Kazushi Hagiwara in 1992 - and yes, almost all the names used in the show are taken from popular "heavy metal" rock bands from the era. IMPRESSIONS: This is an unauthorized attempt by Kaneda to port this unique SNES/SFC fighter to the G/MD. It is in its very early stages (the fight engine isn't even included), but shows promise. VARIATIONS: The name loosely translates as Bastard! The Destructive God of Darkness.
