Knight Lore on the ZX Spectrum

Knight Lore, ZX Spectrum

Knight Lore by Ultimate Play The Game, first released for the ZX Spectrum in 1984, changed the way games were viewed, and played at the time.

The isometric, pseudo 3D landscapes allowed the player to explore using the “Filmation” engine, and it was a huge revelation. There were better versions of Knight Lore made than the Spectrum version (the BBC Micro version was faster, and the Amstrad version was more colourful), but the ZX Spectrum version is the one I remember with most fondness. Because it really pushed the little machine further than anyone had pushed it before. With clicky sound and lots of slowdown.

Completing Knight Lore is almost impossible. It doesn’t matter though – it’s still fun trying and dying!
