As Lady Sia, the female defender of a world on the brink of destruction, your task is to rid the land of the horde of malevolent T'soa beastmen that plague it. A side-scrolling platform title fashioned after the defining titles of the 16-bit era, Lady Sia's quest will take her through four unique worlds, consisting of a total of 23 levels. Armed primarily with a sword, Sia must combat 38 unique enemies, from the lowly Ratmen to the bothersome Badgermen. By pressing a combination of buttons, she can be made to perform a variety of lethal sword attacks.
Far from helpless, she is also able to unleash an energy ball-ranged attack courtesy of a magic ring she wears. Additionally, at her disposal are a handful of offensive and defensive spells she accumulates during her journey. Sia also possesses a wealth of athletic abilities allowing her to crawl, jump, and hang from ledges. By holding the L trigger while walking, Sia can even sneak up on distracted enemies and catch them unaware. At the end of each world, the female protagonist will square off against giant boss characters; some battles will even see her transform into a giant Sasquatch in order to match blows with the massive enemies.
As she makes her way through the bevy of trap-laden, enemy-filled stages, Sia will need to solve puzzles and flip switches in order to continue her quest unabated. Certain switch devices will unlock secret areas that lead to extra items or hidden paths. Interspersed between the standard beat-'em-up stages are 2D shooter-esque levels that require Sia to avoid enemy projectiles while riding atop a friendly bird. Save points are situated throughout the game's many levels and, when activated, will record the exact level of Sia's health and magic. Unlimited continues are provided should you lose all your available lives. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
