In Knightmare, the player takes control of a brave knight named Popolon, who has to rescue his sweetheart Aphrodite from the clutches of the evil Hudnos.
The game is essentially a top-down shooter. Popolon can shoot arrows at his enemies, and at the end of level face bosses, such as witches, etc. Shooting monsters, avoiding obstacles, passing the bridges and collecting upgrades for his weapon leads him to glory. Digitized music and sound add more to the arcade-like gameplay.
This game may also be about two brave knights - you and your friend, who does the same for the victory on one screen.
With lots of action in lots of levels, with lots of enemies and lots of weapons, this game is one of my favorite classics.
No, this is not PC version of a famous Amiga game based on Children's TV series (that one was never made for PC, by the way). This Knightmare is the recompiled DOS version of the Konami game of the same name that was first released in 1986 on the MSX platform and followed by 2 other games in the series. The plot is based loosely on Greek mythology. You are valiant knight Popolon, on his way to rescue Aphrodite, the queen of the castle who was captured by the evil Hudnos. All in a day's work, as usual.
Knightmare is basically a top-down shooter game that is disappointingly much easier than the MSX original. Basically enemies (balls, knights, etc.) come from the top of the screen, and you shoot them with knives or whatever power-ups you collect throughout the game. For its time, there is a surprisingly large number of power-ups to collect-ranging from weapon upgrades (swords, double knives, etc.) to items such as invisibility and shield. Too bad the game is too easy for most people, due to the enemies being too few and far between. Worth a look if you like the MSX series, but otherwise it's nothing special.
