This SabreWulf is a more straightforward PuzzlePlatformer, as Sabreman now has a host of small MonsterAllies which assists him with their different abilities (jump higher, create platforms, move obstacles, etc). Besides the amulet parts, Sabreman gets involved in several {{Fetch Quest}}s trying to recover the objects (or people) Wulf has stolen. Once said article is found, the Wulf wakes up and the player must run away back to the entrance before the wolf can catch him.

''Sabre Wulf'' is the first game in the VideoGame/SabreMan series (followed by ''{{Underwurlde}}'', ''KnightLore'' and ''{{Pentagram}}''), and the game which introduced RareLtd's long-running Sabreman character (who's since appeared in many other Rare games). The game was published in 1984 by "UltimatePlayTheGame" a.k.a. "AshbyComputersAndGraphics", both of which [[StealthPun ultimately]] proved to be trading styles of Rare. If the title character sounds familiar, you might have played [[VideoGame/KillerInstinct another Rare-created series]] that featured [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent a similar creature]].

Not to be confused with the character Sabrewulf from KillerInstinct, who got his namesake from this game. Both games are made by Rare.

There exists two different games carrying [[RecycledTitle the same name]]: the 1984 original, a UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum ActionAdventure starring Sabreman, a British explorer who finds himself trapped in a [[TheMaze deep labyrinth-esque jungle chasm]] and now must find his way out of it by [[DismantledMacGuffin finding 4 pieces of an amulet]]. However, on his path he'll have to fence against [[BigCreepyCrawlies jungle creeps of various sizes]], natives and the titular Sabre Wulf, an [[ImplacableMan implacable wolf]] who appears at times and is better dealt with by running away. Besides the amulet pieces, Sabreman can also collect different treasures for points and colored flowers that grant him temporary special abilities (increased speed, [[InvincibilityPowerUp invulnerability]]) or disadvantages ([[InterfaceScrew inverted controls]]). The game got ported to a few other computers of the time, like the {{Commodore 64}} and UsefulNotes/AmstradCPC.

* BigBadassWolf: The Wulf, of the first variety obviously. It's howl is good enough to send shivers down Sabreman's spine.



* StickyFingers: Wulf steals anything it wants, including even ''people''.

* TimeSkip: Not mentioned, but the game is set quite some years after the original. Sabreman is noticeable older, and even comments he's "getting too old for this."
