Knightmare - The 1980's hit TV show, is coming to the ZX Spectrum as a super new version by Sausageware Games

Great news if you remember watching the 1980s TV show Knightmare, as we've just been informed through Twitter, that the upcoming ZX Spectrum version by Sausageware Games, will be available to purchase at some point soon through BitmapSoft. A much deserved and more enjoyable Knightmare inspiration for the ZX Spectrum, which in itself is based around a TV show in which children had to not only guide a friend wearing a "Helmet of Justice" – a headpiece that blocks their field of vision. But this had to be done through a very creepy medieval environment, using their wits to overcome puzzles, obstacles and the unusual characters they meet along the journey. 

Here's what we know so far. "Many years have passed since the dungeons of Knightmare Castle last echoed to the footsteps of a brave adventurer. But now great tumult rocks the mortal realm, and the dungeon once again opens its doors to those bold enough to venture within! Have you the courage to sweep away the cobwebs from the dungeon door and be the first to reawaken the terrors that lurk inside?"

"Players of the 48k version of the game can expect to have the complete experience that is offered to 128k players. No dungeons or puzzles have been removed for the 48k version. The only difference between the two is that 128k players will be treated to a full suite of in-game music on the AY Chip by composer Joe Olney, including a new version of Ed Welch’s iconic theme tune".

And that's all we know so far, but keep checking the awesome Bitmap Soft website so you don't miss out on the game when it goes live to purchase.
