Defender of the Crown, ZX Spectrum

A very good 1989 homebrew conversion of Cinemaware‘s classic Defender of the Crown, programmed by The Cat, from Hungary.

It has all the basic ingredients of Defender of the Crown – the Risk-style strategy game; the horses; the tournaments, and the castle raids – but it does lack the cut scenes. The fight sequences are also a bit pathetic. Otherwise: it’s a reasonable attempt and is quite playable.
