Review of 'Knight Lore'

Rating:5 User: Vampyre

I was there in the computer shop on the day Knight Lore was first loaded into the demonstration Speccy. Within 30 seconds there was a crowd about seven deep, everyone clambering over each other to get a better look.

Without a shadow of doubt Knight Lore is one of the few truly jaw-dropping games that have been released over the last 30-odd years and still has the distinction of looking pretty good today.

I've always loved Knight Lore and I readily admit that I ignore it's shortcomings. There's a lot of slowdown on some screens, deaths are sometimes unfair and it is a very samey game.

Nonetheless, it will forever remain my favourite ever Speccy game.
