Overview

Beyond the Ice Palace is an action/platformer developed by Elite Systems and released on many of the early computer platforms.

Gameplay

The goal of Beyond the Ice Palace is to simply reach the end of each maze-like stage. At the end is a dragon-like boss, defeating which allows the player to progress to the next stage.

The hero is able to equip three different projectile weapons: Two types of dagger and a morning star. In true Ghouls n Ghosts fashion, however, he can only pick up one and use it at any given time. The player is also able to call upon "the spirit of the woods": a large, somewhat sinister face that eradicates enemies on the screen but is a very finite resource. The player can also collect gems for points.

Reception

Though the platformer received middling reviews - it was deemed too difficult by most, even with its generous ten lives - it was universally praised for its atmospheric chiptune music by David Whittaker.
