This 2009 MSX2 remake of the classic Knight Lore was created by Manuel Pazos and Daniel Celemin of Retroworks, and it is a fun addition to the ever-growing number of Ultimate remakes on the internet. The same guys who made this also made the MSX2 remake of Alien 8, which I quite liked.

Knight Lore for the Famicom Disk System was developed by Tose Co. Ltd. for Jaleco with the blessing of its original creators, Rare. It was published only in Japan in 1986.
Knight Lore, MSX
The MSX version of Knight Lore was developed by Tose Co. Ltd. for Jaleco and published in Europe and Japan in 1985.

Ultimate Play The Game Loading Screens, ZX Spectrum
The ZX Spectrum Loading Screens on all the early Ultimate Play The Games titles are so beautiful that I can’t resist running them again. Any excuse. They are wonderful pixel art from a bygone age of game-making.
