3. GAME STORY
Once there was a holy place called Argool which was founded by five
legendary Indora Gods. One day, suddenly the blackest tragedy happened.
The prosperous holy place, Argool was attacked by the troops of the cruel
king called Ligar. The sky of the holy place was completely covered with
the flying castle of Ligar and his army of dangerous beasts. These
animalized soldiers came down from the sky and commited the most
atrocious cruelties. In a single day, they established the kingdom of EVIL.
In addition, Ligar took away the "Door to Peace" symbolizing the peace that
had been created by Indora.
The hope for peace dissappeared with th loss of the "Door to Peace" and
the people of Argool ceased to smile and could only pray for salvation.
They prayed an ancient passage to counter the fulfilled prophecy of Ligar's
evil reign of terror. The legends says, "When the peaceful land is covered
with EVIL SPIRITS, a brave soldier will be brought to life from the dead,
for the purpose of saving persecuted people. The people of Argool's painful
preyers were so loud that it reverberated throughout the mountains and
traveled a long distance in the land of Algosu. And at last - Rygar, the
hero came back from the dead in order to restore peace to the land of
Argool, battling the forces of evil everywhere. Join forces with Rygar!
