His sword slices the air inches from your face. You realize his next furious swing could mean your death. His size, his power, his savage strength are stunning. You can barely breathe, let alone fight, in the face of the evil Baron Dark™ and his Skeleton Legion. As Prince Lightstar, you alone are the final defense against the terrifying skeletal brigade. This is no easy task, for Baron Dark holds half of the mighty Lightstar Crystal. With it, he can change anyone with an evil heart into an evil Skeleton slave. You must stalk him… you must conquer him… you must not return without the Crystal. You need to put the forces of good and evil back in balance.  If you fail… you and your once-peaceful world will pay.

  • Fully rendered 3D characters and full-motion video sequences plunge you into an impressive fantasy environment.
  • 100 vicious enemies await you in 20 savage levels – think you can handle it?
  • Soar through an amazing 3D rendered world on a skybike, with enemies swarming relentlessly above and below.
  • The smoothest character animations you’ve even seen!
  • CD-quality soundtrack by award winning Tommy Tallarico.







Skeleton Warriors got released twice in the Jewel Case variant – one with the single ring hub, and one with the 2 ring hub. While the discs are a pain in the ass to color correct post-scan, they are indeed two different shades. The packaging appears to be the same for both.

Jewel Case – 1 Ring Hub

My 2 Ring Hub variant is just slightly sun-baked.

Summary Text





  • There are no screenshots for this game yet.



  • There are currently no videos for this game.




  • Skeleton Warriors is based on a toy line from PlayMates – the same company that did the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. While the series never truly caught on, the initial Skeleton Warriors line is peculiar in that it favored the bad guys. They had two vehicles and outnumbered the good guys 5 to 3. There was also a 13-episode cartoon show and a comic series.
  • The game features an interesting gimmick with defeating enemies. You must collect their HeartStone, or their pieces will slowly reassemble back into a warrior. This creates not only a sense of urgency, but some minor tactics you wouldn’t take into account in other games.
  • The original long box CD art has the PSRM incorrectly located underneath the PlayStation logo. The jewel case release correctly relocates it to the outer rim.
