Bo Jangeborg's Spectrum smash about the Land of Fairlight, a 3D extravaganza in the best Ultimate style. And the magic lingers on in both these conversions.

The basic plot is for the hero Isvar to find the Book of Light and save the land of Fairlight. Strange figures, knights, winds and a host of other mysterious creatures conspire to thwart Isvar.

Add to this a large number of graphically great screens and you have a real puzzler to test your skills.

Isvar, sword-in-hand, can move in all directions, jump, pick up objects, store them in pockets.

The worse thing about the game is having to read the "mystical" blurb at the beginning.

All in all, Fairlight is as pretty as a picture on both machines. Enjoy it.
