Did You Know?


In the original Japanese translation, Rygar was the name of the game's chief antagonist. However, since the Kanji for the first syllable in his name can be translated as "Li" or "Ry," the villain's name was translated as Ligar while the game's title remained as Rygar. When it came to the US, it was assumed that Rygar was the hero of the story. In the original version, the hero was referred to only as "The Legendary Warrior." See more »

Watch as a warrior battles all sorts of monsters on his journey to the floating castle.

This game was a rather cool game for the original Nintendo video game system. It had a mix of play as you had your side scrolling levels and your overhead ones as well. There were role playing game elements as well as the more your character fought the stronger he got as he basically leveled up. It had a touch of Zelda too, as our hero had to collect words of wisdom from these big foreheaded old guys and items to help him progress through the game from even bigger foreheaded old guys. He took out boss villains as well. The weapon you used was a discus weapon that is best described as sort of like Simon Belmont's whip from the Castlevania series. It was basically a shield with spikes on a chain that hit the enemy then came back to the hero. The game took some time to win, which makes it all the more surprising that you had to win it in one sitting as if you turned off the Nintendo you had to start over from the beginning. You got potions in this one, as well as weapon power ups. The bosses were not all that challenging once you really leveled up though the final boss was somewhat challenging. Granted I just made a mad dash to him and hit the button repeatedly till he died. All in all a good game for its day.
