Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight - A PC portable edition of an incredible Amiga classic

Someone stop me from fainting, as has just released v2.6 of the remastered version of Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight. This was the most incredible and gorish Amiga hack and slash/Beat Em Up game of it's time, which was developed and published by Mindscape in 1991. You the player, take on the role of a knight who is sent by the druids to return the mystical 'moonstone' to Stonehenge. You probably would've turned down the deed if you had known how brutal your life may end in ths game. Through each fighting scene you could end up fighting any number of strange beasts, and this pretty much determines your end death. You'll either end up being smashed into a pulp, ripped in half, eaten or spiked through the chest! Can you be the greatest knight and return the mystical "moonstone" ?

The game supports between 1 to 4 players at once, with the computer controlling any knights not controlled by human players as rival NPCs. You will at times during the game end up fighting these knights, you're not the only one looking for the moonstone!

Search the lairs for the keys which give you access to the valley of the gods, but beware of the Dragon, because any weak player will have a VERY quick death.

This version contains high quality filters for your PC and all you have to do is download, run the exe and press F12 in game for extra settings. The software is based on the original rom file and remastered through an emulator in a single exe file.
