Rygar: The Legendary Adventure is a reboot of the '80s sidescroller Rygar. As before, the player character is Rygar, whose weapon is a sharp-edged shield that can be whipped about on a chain. There are three different useable disks in the game: the one you start out with, a blue disk with good speed but short-range, and a sand-colored disk that is slow with a wide range. All disks can be upgraded throughout the game.
The gameplay inspired future games in the genre like God of War.
During a ceremony for Rygar, Titans come and kidnap the Princess because the humans have had it too good for too long.
