Forbidden Forest

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Forbidden Forest is an old third person shooter/rail shooter game. You play as a Bounty Hunter who must venture forth in the titular Forbidden Forest and kill all the evil creatures that lures in it.

The game had a sequel (Beyond the Forbidden Forest) and another one in 3D with a different graphic and plot.

Tropes used in Forbidden Forest include:
  • The Archer: The main character.
  • A Winner Is You
