|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.
