Description from the packaging.

The Golden Axe takes on a horrible new cast...

The Death Adder and his evil forces have invaded Yuria, imprisoned the King and his daughter and stolen the legendary Golden Axe. Only the three heros of Yuria have the strength to stop the ruthless tyrant and regain the throne. Tyris-Flare, a beautiful and powerful amazon, has summoned her fire magic to eliminate the Adder and his orphan-making fiends. Gilius-Thunderhead rumbles and tumbles to the scene with his astonishing combination of lightning power and gymnastic skills. And the Axe Battler, who has a personal bone to pick with the evil Adder, has sharpened his giant sword for battle. You must choose which challenger to send into the dreaded path of the Death Adder.

A shadow of evil cloaks the people of Yuria...

The once idyllic Eagle Island has been transformed into a real bird of prey, trapping the good Yurians in its infested feathers. Fearless Skeleton Swordsmen slash through the mangy battlefield, hunting down the Adder's enemies. Meanwhile, Twin Brutes and Lizard Women spread their horror in the once prosperous Turtle Village. The precocious Death Adder Jr. throws knots of electricity from the palace door, barring entrance to the stolen throne. Your weapons range from razor-sharp swords to curtains of fire. You can even joust with your foes on the back of a bizarrian- stolen from an unsaddled Adder fiend! Remember, one dose of magic can wipe away an acre of evil. For the sake of the people of Yuria, you must choose and use your weapons wisely.
