Setting in the medieval times, the Swordsman, accompanied by the Monk and the Dwarf, is taking on an epic journey and fighting against the villains to protect their people. You can now be the heroes in the battles, against a variety of intriguing enemies as you move up to each level, including troops of armies, assassins, wizards, bombers, butchers, skeletons and spirits and so on.
