Sabre Wulf is a video game for the Game Boy Advance starring Sabreman from the ZX Spectrum series of games. A combination of platforming and puzzle game elements, Sabre Wulf encourages the player to think before they progress as they use Sabreman's unique menagerie of animals to make their way to Sabre Wulf's many lairs. Once the player has snatched the booty from under the 'Wulf's nose, it's a race back to the safety of Sabreman's tent.


In the game, the player once again takes on the role of the adventurer Sabreman, who has to recollect pieces of the amulet from his first adventure to recapture Sabre Wulf and reclaim the treasures he stole. In this entry of the Sabreman series, rather than being lost in a single massive jungle, the player travels to the levels of eight different worlds through a village hub overworld where they can interact with inhabitants to prepare for expeditions. Along with the introduction of platforming mechanics, the player can also collect the various creatures inhabiting the world, and utilize their aide in navigating the map. To complete each level, the player has to navigate Sabreman through the landscape to find the stolen treasure and return it to the starting camp. How long the player takes to find the treasure affects it's value; the treasure starts off as "gold", but if the player delays in finding it, it's value will drop to "silver" or "bronze". And once the player has the treasure, they will be chased by Sabre Wulf as they navigate their way back to camp, without being able to call on the aid of the collectable creatures.
