Game description

Risky Woods is a side-scrolling arcade platform game that leans somewhat into beat-'em-up and shooter territory. The main character is an Asian martial arts master-looking dude (think of an anime version of Liu Kang) armed with an endless supply of throwing knives, whose mission apparently takes him through an outlandish looking forest densely packed with undead and other hostile monsters that assault him from all sides.

These enemies (the bulk of which takes but one hit) often drop coins when destroyed, which you need to kneel down to pick up, and others even larger treasure pouches, usually filled with several coins. Sometimes you can find treasure chests falling from trees, filled with more exotic powerups and even power-downs, one of which will temporarily flip the screen upside-down, like in Prince of Persia.

The game has a distinct Amiga-esque look, and appears to have been originally developed for that platform. The playable pre-release demo contains one level. There is a limited amount of time given to reach the exit.
