Knightmare

A game based on one of my personal favourite TV shows – Knightmare – in which contestants guide a classmate around a computer generated dungeon solving puzzles.

The set up is much like text adventures of yore such as The Hobbit but takes a cue from the Magic Knight games in providing joystick animated characters and menu driven commands.

In terms of presentation this game is first class.  Although does have the whiff of a Spectrum port in the monochrome-esque colour palette.  It looks and plays just like the best text adventures.

However, I always found this game tad on the overtly difficult side.  The very first screen is enough for a little head scratching, and after solving that puzzle the next screens only obvious option puts you back at the start with no way out.
