Gilgamesh, the hero of The Tower of Druaga. He's another surprise entry in the Namco Top 10, but he has made quite a few cameo appearances that may have helped his cause.

The original game was strangely popular in Japan, but never really made an impact in the West.

Oh it made an impact in the West. Most Americans didn't like it. X_X

"Tower of Druaga" is probably THE hardest game I have ever played and came so close to completing!
yet, I still LOVE it and keep coming back for more!! i'm a sucker for western fantasy and there's nothing like the thrill of good challenge, right??
NICE WORK, btw!!(^w^)

Looking pretty good there! Is this game a dungeon crawler, I wonder? Other than that, I quite like this kind of presentation shown for Gilgamesh.

(That shield has Mickey Mouse-like logo on it, haha)

It's more like a proto-Zelda. You have to solve cryptic puzzles to make treasures and weapons appear on each floor.

The shield is supposed to have a blue arrow on it. A case of "didn't do the research" ;)

I might have to try that game sometime. Nice work on the hero. :) Love the brick details in the background to.

I wish I'd spent more time on the background and fixing a few bits, but I still have three more Namco characters to do, then 10 Sega characters! And I wanna get the Capcom poll going. :p Also I'm lazy!

The game's not great either - it was one of those where there's loads of secret cryptic crap, but the Japanese lapped that stuff up in the 80s for some reason!
