    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Young Merlin is a top-down SNES adventure game in the same vein as The Legend of Zelda. The player, as Merlin, must hunt across the landscape for items and clues for Merlin's next destination. He is helped by various fantasy creatures as well as the Lady of the Lake from Arthurian lore. The game is notorious for its extremely difficult minecart sequences and lack of direction.

    The game was developed by Westwood Studios, the development team behind fantasy games such as Eye of the Beholder, Lands of Lore and Legend of Kyrandia (as well as Command & Conquer). Young Merlin was their attempt at a lighthearted console game.
