Review of 'Knight Lore'

Rating:5 User: WhizzBang

Gameplay: Collect the objects requested by the cauldron in the center of the game world, and drop them in the cauldron when in human form (you periodically turn into a werewolf).

This is a game I never 'got' back in the 1980's and it is only through emulation decades later that I have discovered what an excellent game it is. When I tried to play this as a child I would make Sabreman walk around a bit and visit some rooms but did not have a clue what I was supposed to be doing.

I came back to it in 2007 and was determined to work out what you had to do in this game by looking it up on WOS and Wikipedia. By doing this I found much to my surprise that it wasn't a mind boggling difficult game at all, it was actually a fairly simple and compulsive game in a similar mold to Atic Atac, but with the 3d twist. Once I understood this I could not stop playing it until I eventually managed to complete it for the first time, using infinite lives poke. I am still playing it on-and-off now to try and do it without the poke.

Using an infinite lives poke does not ruin this game because you are up against the clock and so you need to lose as few lives as possible to get it all done in time. So, if you still don't 'get' this wonderful game I recommend you read up on some instructions, load it up in an emulator and enter the infinite lives poke to get you started.
