Full Description

Not long after the malign reign of the Death Adder has ended, another evil rises. The peace of the land has again been threatened, this time by 'Dark Guld', who has got his hands on the Golden Axe, and is using it for his own nasty purposes, and with his minions is causing much chaos.

Battle the dreaded Dark Guld with the Barbarian, the Amazon and the Dwarf. Use tough new warrior skills and dazzling magic. Kick, hack, and hurl away enemies in the struggle to recapture that legendary symbol of peace, the Golden Axe. So let the battle begin! Lift your mighty blade high to crush the demon Dark Guld!

Six button controller/ Game Over glitch bug:

Golden Axe II was programmed back when the Genesis/Mega Drive first came out. The 6-button controller wasn't invented until many years later. So when they programmed Golden Axe II, they had no way of testing it with a 6 button controller from the future. Most games work fine, but not Golden Axe II. Instead it will give you the Game Over screen when you start the game which really insults your skills. Switching the difficulty to EASY won't make the Game Over screen appear any later.

However there is a simple fix that will make YOUR copy of Golden Axe II work perfectly. There are two ways to accomplish this and I have detailed both methods in this FAQ.

Method #1 - Use a 3 button controller. Golden Axe II was designed for this and won't spaz out.

Method # 2 - Find the MODE button on your 6-button controller and hold it down before you turn the power on to your Genesis/Mega Drive. While still holding it down, turn your Genesis/Mega Drive on. At any time after the Genesis/Mega Drive is fully on (LED on the system is lit, etc), let go of the MODE button. Golden Axe II now works fine and won't go into retard mode. Why is this? It's because the MODE button switches a 6-button controller to 3-button mode if it is held down when power is first applied. Many games need this.

Other games that require a 3-button controller or the MODE button method:

Ms. Pac Man
Beast Wrestler
Sunset Riders
Forgotten Worlds
Exile
