Wrath of the Demon is a computer game developed by a Quebec-based team called Abstrax. Versions for Atari ST, Amiga, PC and Mac were released in Early 1991. There was also a Commodore 64 version.
The player controls a hero on a quest to defeat a demon. Gameplay styles include hack 'n' slash (combat at close quarters), horse riding, etc.
The nine musical tracks are by David Whittaker. The programmers for the Amiga version were David Foster, Pierre Proulx and Martin Ross. The programmer for the PC version was Nicolas Chapados. The game was designed and arted out by Claude Pelletier.
Reviewer David Upchurch at the time claimed the Amiga version was better than Shadow of the Beast 2, calling it "technically (...) the most accomplished and polished game yet written for the Amiga". He gave it 884 out of a possible 1000 points. It features very smooth continuous scrolling during the horseback sequences.
