COMPUTE! 1983/10 (Issue #41).
In this fast-action adventure game your mission is to maneuver through the countryside until you reach the castle and save the princess - if you can. There are all sort of dragons you must first conquer and a wily, evil evil wizard in steady pursuit. The game has four difficulty levels.
This game involves three courageous knights who have returned home from war only to find that the countryside surrounding their castle is infested with dragons that were placed therer by an evil wizard. Trapped inside the castle is the beautiful princess, who anxiously awaits the first knight who can rescue her. One at a time the kinghts try to slay all the dragons and enter the castle to save the princess.
The knights quickly discover the many dangers of the hunt. A dragon will eat anyone who comes near its head. The only way to get rid of one is to zap in the stomach. Guarding the castle is a phantom dragon that can only be eliminated when all the others have been overcome (The castle drawbridge will remain closed until he is conquered). At times a dragon will appear from nowhere, and occasionally a dragon you though you'd disposed of sill reapear to have another try at the knight. And last, but certainly not ehe easiest of the perils, is the evil wizard himself, who chases the knights as they hunt the dragons. If the wizard catches a knight, the knight is destroyed.
- How to Play -
