Sir Knight C16 - C64Mark and DMX87's latest redux for the Commodore 16/Plus4

Move over MSX as it is time for the C16 and Plus/4 to get in on the retro gaming fun, as both the developer and Saberman have informed us about the latest release of Sir Knight by C64Mark and DMX87. A game in which playing as Sir Knight on a quest set by King Arthur, must rescue the beautiful Princess Ethel imprisoned in Black Skull Castle. To coincide with this news, Saberman has also done a video showing the game in action below...Although he has used cheats to play through the levels :p.

Here is what the website describes about Sir Knight C16 "The fortification around the castle comprises of archers and cannons firing menacing fireballs. Other obstacles impeding your progress are pits, portcullis, and a grease-covered moving bridge spanning a large pit. All of these obstacles need to be conquered before a trail of fire ignites a store of TNT under the Princess' dungeon. Original game written by Chris Robbins for Tynesoft Computer Software" 

This redux version now fits into 16K and will run on a stock Commodore 16 (the original was 32K). It also includes the following new features:

  • Screen flicker/raster fix
  • All new music and sfx
  • Overlapping soft sprites
  • Number of levels extended from 14 to 30
  • Level names and numbers
  • Checkpoint at level 16
  • New, extended hi score table and screen
  • NTSC fixed
  • Cheat modes included
  • Joystick control and choice of keys
  • New graphics and end screen
  • Reason for death shown
  • Extra life every 20,000 points

  1. The original game this code was based on is Sir Hero, published for the VIC-20 in 1984. It is an unofficial conversion of the arcade game Hunchback, which was converted to almost all platforms in the 1980s - sometimes under other names like 'Quasimodo' or 'Kwasimodo'. None of these versions literally follow the design of the arcade original btw.

  2. This game reminds me of Imagic's 1982 Dragonfire game. The castle run section at least. Someone made a remake/tribute version called 'Castle of Fire' which you can download here:
