Semi-Random Pseudo-3D 2:1 Isometric 8-bit 80s Dungeon Crawl Post

Knight Lore 








Now with videos and box art.


  1. Fairlight was one of my favourite games back then. Must dig out my emulator and give it a spin.

  2. Fairlight's music sticks in my mind but I wasn't fond of the game; it was one of those lazy Spectrum ports that ran like a dead dog on the C64. I have much fonder memories of Nosferatu, which was the same sort of thing but not a dungeon crawler.

  3. I've never played any of these games. :( We didn't have a computer until the late 90s.

  4. Fatal Labyrinth was my first dungeon crawl experience, extremely unforgiving and different every time you played. Just as a crawl should be

  5. Hey charles, grab yourself a ZX spectrum emulator and head on over to World of Spectrum for some downloads - although I think Knight Lore and Nightshade might be unavailable. I never played Fairlight BitD. None of the games are strictly a "dungeon crawl", except Heroquest. The modular architecture in Nightshade is amazing tho.

  6. Spent many hours on knightlore with my Amstrad cpc6128 when i was a kid... 30 years ago. Great remembers, despite the 2 colours environment, the game was very fun and i loved the way you turned into a werewolf when the moon was full.
