Knight Lore is one of those mandatory games to review.
Not only for its quality but also for being a landmark in the Speccy universe.
The idea is quite captivating, Ultimate always knew how to capture the players attention, and even being a bit repetitive at times the game is very inspiring and addictive. The graphic quality is superb, the transformation sequence is delicious and one of the most original ever, the games goal is rewarding and well thought out and the isometric look really inspired players. Knight Lore as that mystery edge that makes you came back for more. I myself became a bit fed up with isometric games after 'Alien 8', they all started to look like sequels and not original games. But this two and 'Ant Attack' rate as classics in the speccy universe, and I think to everyone who played them.
