If you’re a fan of the TV series Xena: Warrior Princess and a Game Boy Color owner to boot, it’s time to get excited. Drawing on the action and suspense of the show, Xena is similar to Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda, something that works very much in its favour.

The gameplay in Xena is mostly mission-based. In typical role-playing fashion, you must find your weapons and seek out other characters to interact with. After you have found your sword by exploring the landscape, you can start your quest. You will soon run into people or animals that will ask you for you help. For example, a bear is asleep on the steps of the palace and the only way to get him to move is to go and find him food. Xena features more than ten quests and each one has its own unique objectives.

One cool feature of Xena: Warrior Princess is the cross-game link. Provided you have a friend with a GBC and a copy of Hercules it is possible to join these two games together. This allows Xena to visit hidden worlds and environments in a completely different game. This cross-game compatibility also extends the other way with Hercules being allowed to visit Xena’s secret areas. This allows Hercules to join Xena in her dangerous quests.

Xena: Warrior Princess has plenty of variety in both locations and missions, and given the opportunity to link the game with the GBC’s Hercules (released, luckily enough, on the same day) the possibilities are, well, not exactly endless, but the longevity is certainly given a boost.
