Guardian Saga The Dark Forest is a side scrolling game in which you get the opportunity to play as the brave knight. You have been divinely appointed to be guardian of the forest. Unfortunately the forest has been infested by the dark forces. You will have to go through the forest to fight against the evil forces to defeat all of them and free the forest from their evil rule. The coins collected during each attempt can be spent on various useful upgrades which will help you match up with the powers of the evil ones. The evil ones will keep getting aggressive and so should you.
