Generic beat-em-up

Another Golden Axe clone from Capcom, this time with a Medieval England twist as you play as either King Arthur, Lancelot, or Perceval and slash your way through eight or so repetitive levels to get the Holy Grail or whatever. This one is moderately notable for it's level-up feature in which your character becomes more powerful with each score goal reached. Other than that, the moves are very limited, the environments cannot be used to your advantage, and the enemies can be quite annoying. One of the faults of the genre is enemies hiding off-screen where you cannot reach them, which I suppose is done to sneakily save on memory and slow-down.

I finished this game just ten minutes ago and I am struggling to remember one thing about the levels, they were just so generic.
