Rygar features a series of levels where the player must reach the end of the stage before the time limit runs out. The player is armed with a large disc weapon which is attached to the character's wrist by a short chain. The weapon can be upgraded to a larger version during the game.
The game is notable in that despite having a time limit, the game does not automatically end when the timer expires. Instead, a demonic monster appears that will actively pursue (and usually kill) the player as they race for the exit.
The arcade version of Rygar contains 27 stages, after which the game presents a short, celebratory sequence and ends the game.
A game named Rygar was released on the NES, but like other arcade-to-NES games such as Strider and Bionic Commando, Rygar on the NES is a full-fledged action-adventure game with an open-world to explore.
