Actually Tom, the Mega drive (genesis), version of Golden axe was released in 1990 I believe.

It had a huge amount of add ons, such as a completely different extra last level and last boss, and a duel mode where you fought enemies in a closed arena.

For these reasons, it's generally thought of as the ultimate version of the game, even though some aspects, ---- such as the sequence showing a wounded soldier telling the heros about the capture of the king, were missed out.

It's now been re-released both on Wii virtual console, and on the Gba as part of one of Sega's game collections.

Beware the grue!
