Golden Path is a sideways scrolling arcade adventure, set in ancient China.
You control the main character and guide him across each screen, picking up items along the way. Unfortunately, some of the characters you encounter are hostile, whilst others need your help. Defend yourself using your knowledge of martial arts, and learn what to do with the items you have collected.
Objects to collect include a key, an apple, a book of lore and so on. You can only carry four items in your pockets and one in your hands. Working out what to do and when is the challenge that awaits you on the path to ultimate enlightenment.
