Elven Warrior by Players is an action / puzzle game.
I thought at first that the game was going to be crap
because of the very messy graphics and dire control
system (you can only jump directly up!), but I stuck at
it and found it to be a decent little budget game.
have to guide your elf through the many screens and
collect four bottles to fill each of the four cauldrons.
There are many enemies to avoid, weapons to use, and
bonus items to collect. The difficulty though, is navigating the platforms, staying on the moving lifts
and avoiding slipping off ledges to your death - made
harder by the fact you can't jump sideways. It can be
frustrating but you will get the hang of it eventually.
The levels are designed pretty well to cater for your
clumsy elf, so it's possible to visit all the screens
and collect all the items.

...to find that
nothing really happens!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used an infinite lives cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once the four bottles of potion for the cyan coloured
cauldron are collected and dropped into it, the elf
freezes as explosions are set off all over the screen. A
message scrolls across the bottom on the screen telling
you that the cauldron is now full. The elf then turns to
stone, just like the other Elven statues that stand on
the other side of the screen. The high score table then
pops up before the game restarts.
FINAL SAY: There are explosions, sound
effects, a scrolling message and a small bit of
animation. It sounds far better than it is though.
