Shack's Arcade Corner: Willow

Willow, the high-fantasy film directed by Ron Howard and penned by Star Wars creator George Lucas spawned a number of game adaptations, each version differed from the others to varying degrees. The NES cartridge is arguably the most well-known, while the coin-op game was a different beast. Whereas NES players partook in an adventure-style game that shared more in common with Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda, the coin-op version was a platform game where players switch between different characters to get through obstacles.
