Sword of Sodan was a hack and slash game that was released in 1989 on the Amiga, as well as the Sega Megadrive in 1990.

It featured very large characters and did fairly well at the time. Reviewed in CVG, it was stated that there were vague plans for ST and C64 conversions of the game. Sadly neither of the conversions would ever see the light of day.

The question is whether either of the conversions were actually ever started, or were just talked about?

Hopefully Søren Grønbech, Torben B. Larsen will shed some light some day soon.

  1. The game felt like a techincal showcase for the capabilites of the Amiga at the time. It was all about the graphics with amazing colors, huge sprites and digitized sound effects. The kind of game that was not possible to do on a C64 (at least not at the time).

  2. Game didn’t go down well on Megadrive..personally couldn’t see it working well on C64, looking at games like Final Fight, Street Fighter 2 etc.

    But will be interesting to hear plans for a C64 version.
