Movie tie-in games were relatively rare in 80s arcades, but the few that did surface often produced games that stand well on their own (Tron and Star Wars being excellent examples). Though certainly less well-known, Capcom's Willow belongs in that list as well, as a platformer with a surprising amount of depth as well as heart. Willow follows the events of the 1988 Ron Howard movie, in which diminutive Willow Ufgood must protect baby Elora from the evil witch queen Bavmorda, while teaming up with warrior Madmartigan along the way. The gameplay is similar in many ways to the Ghosts 'n Goblins series, with the addition of more complex levels, a more reasonable difficulty level and the ability to buy upgrades from roving vendors, which give you a variety of new abilities in addition to allowing you to restore your health.
