TV Commercial: Swords And Serpents
Swords & Serpents

This spot for Acclaim's 4-player RPG definetly has Acclaim written all over it. This ad stars four adventurers: two warriors, a mean-looking woman, and some old dude holding a torch. We watch as they brave gameplay footage and fake creatures to find treasure guarded by what appears to be a rubber snake. Confused? Don't blame you. Maybe the announcer can clear things up.

"Tonight, instead of just playing a video game, live it. Swords and Serpents takes you to a new world where you become one of a band of super warriors. Do you enter the dungeon, choose your weapons, or forge ahead? The battle is at hand. You must gain experience and power by defeating the evils of the dark. Danger lurks in the dungeon, but so do the rewards. Enter Acclaim's world of Swords and Serpents on your NES if you dare!

Another Acclaim title comin' at ya. This certainly isn't the cast of Gauntlet. EEEK! A fake spider!
Watch out for the angry chick with the axe. "You mean we get all this by playing this stupid game?" Please tell me this isn't the serpent everybody fears.

Bottom line, if you're looking for a prime example of an Acclaim ad, look no further.

This clip was recoreded by myself, and is hosted by The Warp Zone.
