Knights - Another puzzler but this time as a ZX Spectrum port!

When I was a young lad my step dad used to always go on about Chess. He'd sit there for hours on end moving around pieces as if the end result would be some grand prize. It certainly wasn't my idea of fun as I was a video gamer! So how do you blend something you don't enjoy into something you do, well this game might just do it, 'Knights'. A new game for the ZX Spectrum which is a port of a much earlier PC game.

Now before you get too excited Chess fans this isn't Chess as such but a puzzle game by Darryl Sloan using only Knight pieces, hence the loading picture of the grand knight design by Andy Green. The idea of the game is a bit of a brain basher, as according to planetasinclair you have to move all the pieces to put them in the correct positions but also not violating the rules of chess through eighty-two levels of increasing difficulty. So basically you're going to have to play this one to work it out as explaining it could cause a bit of confusion.
