** Even more so in the following Level 4-2 (Grave) which evidently takes you right through a crypt, as the background is full of coffins and shelves with skulls on them and many more of those skeletons emerge to attack you along the way.

High school freshman Astyanax (named after the hero of Greek mythology, "he thinks", although otherwise [[SadlyMythtaken not related to his namesake]][[note]]who died at a very young age[[/note]]) keeps having visions of a girl. Walking to school one day, he finds himself teleported to another world by a fairy named Cutie. Cutie is the advisor of Princess Rosebud, ruler of the kingdom of Remlia. Unfortunately, Rosebud has been [[DistressedDamsel kidnapped]] by the evil wizard Blackhorn. It seems Astyanax is TheChosenOne, as he possesses "The miracle power within him", and so it becomes his job, with the help of Cutie and a magic ax called "Bash", to save Rosebud and restore peace to Remlia.

* DemBones: Blackhorn ''really'' loves his skeleton minions... There are very few levels in the game that don't have skeletons lying in wait for our hero.
