Crossed Swords game description
As a knight, you must travel the countryside fighting monsters and bandits using your sword and shield. When you enter combat the view changes to a pseudo 1st-person perspective where the body of your knight is outlined so that you can see the creatures that you are fighting.
When enemies have been defeated, they drop money and power-ups. There are seven chapters in the game, and each chapter (except one) starts with you entering a merchant’s shop and buying weapons using the money that you have collected so far.
There are also alternate paths which take you to different parts of the game. At the start of the game, you may choose a chapter (from one to three only) you want to start at.
Crossed Swords requires correct timing and movement to progress. The basic rule for the game is to defend first before striking.
The player wields both a weapon and shield and can strafe, as well as guard the upper or middle part of the body.
Two different weapon strikes are available, a regular attack and a thrusting attack. Weapon-based magic can also be used. Multiple paths through the game are available and the player has an option to skip the first and second chapters freely.
