This is a duelling game for two players. The year is 1190 AD when, in the land which is now Germany, existed a Holy Order, the Teutonic Knights. You are one of these knights.

The knights lived by very strict codes. One of these was never to lift their swords in anger against each other. But the knights did meet secretly in a valley to fight one another to the death.

The valley is displayed on the screen with two knights. There is also one knight in each corner showing respective strengths. Using the keyboard or joysticks you can move the knights up, down, forwards and backwards, and control the movement of the swords.

This is a quality game with high class graphics. The titles for the introduction are original and the information given makes for very interesting reading. The music accompanying the titles is tuneful. A facility is provided to skip the introduction and to record the high scores on a tape.

This has been one of the most enjoyable games I have played.
