Zorro is a platform game with the same fluid animation (and most of the same controls) as Prince of Persia. Set in Spanish California, Zorro gets a lot of hit points, which are reduced when he falls from a great height or is hit by enemies, who he can fight with a whip or a sword. The enemies can take many hits from either weapon and their hit points are not displayed. Zorro gets an infinite number of lives and no time limit, which is a very good thing. The levels are very large, but there are unmarked continue points. The focus on cinematic realism is impressive, with characters appearing lighter or darker based on their proximity to a light source, but the difficulty level and pace of the game may not have been a great fit for a game about Zorro. The AOL Shareware demo contains opening and closing cinematics that aren't included in the CDROM Shareware demo. Only the first two levels are playable in the shareware version.
