You play a warrior possessed with mystic powers who does that superhero thing of battling endless hordes of evil beings. Arcade game based on the Japanese anime series Saint Seiya. A Spanish-dubbed version of the show was also syndicated throughout Central and South America under the title Los Caballeros del Zodiaco.

Looks and plays much like the first Valis game. If you can handle that, then you can handle this.
