Golden Axe 32X edition

Hack of Golden Axe


This hack enhances the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version of Golden Axe by using the 32X’s graphics capabilities.

  • The maps are reworked based on the arcade version of the game and displayed using the 32X.
  • Eye animations for the turtle and eagle are back in
  • Uses the arcade version of the door open/close animation
  • Demo/Attract mode resembles the arcade game more closely
  • The cast screen had been moved to the main menu and is now interactive
  • Credits are skippable

The duel mode had been removed (for now).

The hack was developed using emulators. Unfortunately it does not run on original hardware (crashes after player selection). So for anyone that wants to take a shot at fixing it to run on original hardware the full source code is available.
