The Amstrad CPC version of Ultimate‘s famous Knight Lore is the best-looking version, in my opinion.
The Amstrad‘s extra colours in high res mode make all the difference and it gives the look of the game an extra dimension. It also makes figuring out where you are on the screen a little easier.
Amstrad Knight Lore still suffers from slowdown – I think all the 8-bit version do – but it’s almost like it’s a deliberate feature… Meaning: that if the game didn’t slow down during some scenes they would be almost impossible to beat.
What am I talking about? Knight Lore is impossible to beat. Well, almost. 🙂
