C&VG1st September 1986
Published in Computer & Video Games #59
Although Spellbound and Knight Tyme are available on different machines, they are part of the continuing adventures of Magic Knight.
Spellbound sees good old MK on a mission to rescue his friend and tutor Gimbal the Wizard from the Mystical Castle of Karn. Knight Tyme follows on from Spellbound. MK has been catapulted into the future and onto a spaceship USS Pisces. His mission here is to find his way back to his own time and space.
Both games are arcade adventures, packed with clever puzzles, and tricks, laced together with programmer David Jones' zany sense of humour.
Both games used a window menu system to take decisions and get information called Windimation. This is a little tricky at first but, once you get used to it, there is no problem.
Both these games are little gems, at fantastic prices. Our advice is simply to buy them. We doubt if you'll feel your money has been wasted.
And in case you're interested, C&VG printed a Player's Guide to both games in September.
