Aha! If you've been watching the excellent Knightmare series on TV and fancy yourself as a bit of an adventurer, this might just be your cup of tea. Instead of guiding a mate through the rooms of the Knightmare world, you take control of an imprisoned knight using a combination of joystick and keypress commands.

You're stuck in a dungeon and don't fancy making chalk marks on the wall for the rest of your life, so you put away your penknife and try to find a way to escape - without getting killed by spiders, monsters and pretty horrible things on the way. Every now and then, a creature sets a riddle: get the answer wrong and - minzaguiness, allacazam - you're dead. Nasty that.

A bit of a toughie but if you're an arcade adventure fan, well worth a go.
