Stormbringer 128
By Mastertronic Added Dimension
Spectrum 48K/128K

Published in Sinclair User #65


This is the 128K version of the original Stormbringer, which completed David Jones' trilogy of Magic Knight Adventures. It retains all the features of the original including the Windimation option to select system (loads of menus, basically) and zillions of objects to collect some of which are completely useless. For full details of the game check out SU Feb page 88.

This new 128K version has a slightly enhanced version of Windimation - which means flipping between all the different window options is made easier and quicker - and a really nifty sound track. In fact the soundtrack adds quite a lot to the game.

We liked it well enough on 48K and the fact that this is the same price and includes extra features definitely ups it rating. A must for 128K owner.

Overall Summary

Final Magic Knight game now enhanced as 128K-only version.
