Alien robots from the evil Krion Empire have invaded Earth and ransacked the planet to the brink of destruction. Even the most powerful armies in the world cannot repel the invasion. Teetering on the brink of surrender, the people of Earth have one last chance for survival. Only the power of the ancient witches and their mighty magic can stop the invaders.

In The Krion Conquest, the force of magic is on your side as you become the powerful witch Francesa. Your mission is to save the Earth from doom and destruction.

You must fight through five rounds, each with three stages and a final boss. You'll do battle underground, underwater, suspended in air, surrounded by ice, and in outer space, and you'll need all the magic and power at your command to survive.

There are six kinds of magic in Francesa's bag of tricks. When the game begins, you can use all six. Take a look at your position on the screen and the location of the enemy before choosing which trick to use - each one is different.

Your witch's robes change color to indicate which spell you've cast. If your robes are blue, normal and super shots will freeze your enemies in their tracks for a few moments. Green robes mean you've cast the ball magic spell, so your shots will ricochet off the walls. If your robes are orange, you're using a shield spell, and your shots will form a barrier between you and the enemy robots.

When you choose the fire spell, your robes turn pink and Francesa transforms into a firebird, destroying all enemies on the screen. But make sure you have at least one-third of the power remaining on your life meter before casting this spell - it reduces your life power by that much.

The graphics and screens in The Krion Conquest resemble those in the Mega Man series, but don't be fooled by small similarities. When it comes to action, adventure, and graphics, The Krion Conquest is unfortunately a step behind those trend-setting games.

Game Reviews

High tech terror has struck planet Earth. The year is 1999 and the Krion Empire Robotic Batallion has taken command of the planet. The situation appeared hopeless until one sensible little boy decided to call upon Francesca, a good witch who had saved the Earth once before. This nifty five level Mega Man-style action adventure pits Francesca against the treacherous battalion. Fortunately one of the perks that comes with being a witch are magic powers -- lots of 'em! A flying broomstick, a shield, ricocheting ball shots, and the magic of the Fire Bird are just a few of the tricks you've got up your sleeve. Get bewitched by Krion Conquest.

Eons ago a once peaceful civilization lived on our planet. Great Beasts arose from the underworld and almost completely destroyed the world. When all seemed lost the people called upon the spirit world for help. A tiny witch of great power and magic took pity on their situation and drove away the Beasts. Since then the world rebuilt itself and lived in harmony until the present day. Now the world is again on the brink of destruction, this time by a battalion of robots from the planet Krion. The people once more called out for Francesca's help. You must save the world by locating and destroying the Krion leaders hidden somewhere in the mazes of their flying battleships!

Once, long ago, ancient Earth faced the dreadful Great Beasts. These monsters nearly destroyed all civilization. In desperation, the people called upon a small witch of enormous power to stop the creatures. When the witch succeeded, peace reigned on Earth once again.

Now, a new evil menace threatens Earth and its people. The deadly Krions have attacked, and Earth is defenseless against their power! Mankind has refused to bow down to the Krions, but time is running out. Each night, killer robots, searching for prey, roam the streets. Nobody is safe after dark!

One such night, a small boy being chased by robots found a strange wand in a dead end. Raising the wand for protection, the child closed his eyes. In a blinding flash, the robots erupted into balls of flame!

MEGA WITCH!

In this MegaMan clone from Vic Tokai, the Krion Empire has attacked Earth. Only the right combination of speed, cunning, and power can stop the numerous Krion armies! Krion Conquest adds a couple of new twists to an old theme.

USE THE WEAPONS!

From the very start, Francesca has a huge arsenal of weapon to choose from: Normal shots, Ball shots, Freeze balls, a Shield, a Broom, and the Firebird. Each will be used constantly throughout the game. The most useful weapons are ball shots and the broom. The ball shots bounce around and hit elusive enemies while the broom allows you to fly over or around dangerous obstacles! Also, the Firebird is powerful, but since it uses valuable energy, release it only in an emergency! A wise gamer will win.
