A CinematicPlatformGame from 1994, developed by Creator/BlizzardEntertainment and published by Creator/InterplayEntertainment, for the {{SNES}} and [[IBMPersonalComputer PC]] (later ported to the [[SegaGenesis 32X]], {{Macintosh}}, and GameBoyAdvance). The gameplay is very similar to ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia''; the main differences are that combat is done with guns and bombs instead of swords, and there is an item inventory system (some levels require the use of these items to make progress).

The game begins with player character Kyle Vlaros (Also known as Blackthorne) being teleported from Earth to the world of Tuul by a magician called Galadril, who tells Blackthorne that he is the heir to the throne of the kingdom of Androth. However, Androth has been conquered by Ka'dra'suul, and it is up to Blackthorne to free the Androthi and defeat Ka'dra'suul.

!!This game contains examples of:

* ActionBomb: There are the spider-like walking bomb enemies, and there are also the "remote wasps" (flying bombs that you can control).
* AdaptationExpansion: The 32x version have one stage more, the SlippySlideyIceWorld.
* AmbidextrousSprite: Even though the left/right sprite is a mirror image, there is animation between the two directions, including adjusting the position of the weapon among the two hands.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: There's Blackthorne himself, and also the FinalBoss (actually, the ''only'' [[BossBattle boss]]) is Sarlac, the ruler of Ka'dra'suul.
* BagOfSpilling: You begin each level with a fixed selection of items, regardless of what items you had at the end of the previous level. This might have been done to allow for the password-based save system to use only four-characters-long passwords.
* BloodlessCarnage: Used in the SNES version. The PC version kept the blood.
* TheCameo: TheLostVikings in [[http://i.imgur.com/IZ8yFlK.png The Forest of Onehand]] only in 32X version.
* CaveBehindTheFalls: Parts of levels in the first area (the mines) are located through doorways that are behind waterfalls.
* ChangelingFantasy
* CombatTentacles: The "eekers" have them.
* EvilLaugh: The grag'ohr that you encounter earlier will laugh at you after shooting you, which gives you a chance to shoot them. Later ones don't do that, making them more difficult. The whar'orks also give you one if you [[ImmuneToBullets try to shoot them]].
* FriendlyFireproof: Both averted and played straight. You can shoot most friendly humans, unless they engage in combat (where they make for good [[HumanShield shields]]) or have an upgrade for your gun.
* ImmuneToBullets: You need an explosive to take out a whar'ork.
* InfiniteAmmo: You can't run out of bullets/shells. The amount of bombs, however, is limited (they occupy slots in your item inventory).
* ManEatingPlant: The "eeker" enemies.
* MarketBasedTitle: It was called ''Blackhawk'' in some European countries.
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Unlike in ''PrinceOfPersia'', you can grab a ledge no matter how far you've already fallen.
* NotUsingTheZWord: The grag'ohr are basically [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs]] (they even resemble those from ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', which was released the same year).
* OffhandBackhand: Blackthorne can shoot backwards. Doing so isn't useful, but it sure is [[RuleOfCool cool.]]
* OurOrcsAreDifferent: They are called grag'ohr and come in all colors of the rainbow.
* PasswordSave
* PunctuationShaker: TheEmpire is called "Ka'dra'suul", and there are two types of enemies called "grag'ohr" and "whar'ork".
* SequelHook: The ending shows [[spoiler: a single grag'ohr being teleported to the same place on Earth where Blackthorne was teleported away from in the opening cutscene, and then the grag'ohr laughs]]. However, no sequel has been made.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Blackthorne.
* UpdatedRerelease: The 32X version has updated graphics and a new area.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can shoot and kill the slaves and prisoners you're supposed to be saving. They'll drop any gear they would have given you, so you can't make the game {{Unwinnable}} this way. This was removed in the SNES version.
* WhipItGood: The whar'orks are armed with whips, presumably because they're slave-drivers.
