Warlock is a 1994 action game for the Sega Mega Drive and SNES by Trimark Interactive and Realtime Associates based on the Warlock series of films. In Japan, it had been scheduled to be released in May 1995, but was canceled just before.

Gameplay

C jumps. B attacks. holding down A controls your orb: you can send it into 8 directions by pushing the directional buttons. There are supposedly multiple spells to choose from but the method of choosing spells is unknown (TODO).

Versions

Mega Drive and SNES versions differ slightly in terms of content. While most of the graphics are identical (taking color limitations of the MD version and resolution limitation of the SNES in consideration), the game differs slightly in terms of stage layout and boss battles. E.g. stage one boss behaves completely different, there is no high elevator in stage 1, not bat ambush in stage 2 of the SNES version etc.).
