Knight Lore was a hell of a breakthrough, but I had more fun with other games. Kokotoni Wilf, Knight-Tyme (when I could eventually get a 48K version) and Krakout (lately, emulated) are high on the list, but for the two-player option and the editor back then, my vote has to go to Kikstart 2.

Ok I was a big fan of the TV show so the game was an easy sell back in the day. Lol I even had the game book that came out. :lol:

I voted Kung-Fu, because, well, I love that game. It was so simple in conception but so effective with the big graphics and smooth animations. But Knight Lore is for sure the best of the bunch.

Precisely my view too. I fired up Kikstart 2 a few months ago and spent a whole night playing every course. Easily one of the greatest budget games ever made.

These 3 stand out for me:

Knight Lore – ground breaking, causing many of our jaws to drop lower than our chuds were at the time.

Kokotoni Wilf – A bit naff but simple playable fun, the giant dinosaurs felt quite special and it had a great atmosphere, brimming with nostalgia. Spirit of the Speccy.

Knight Tyme – Combines a bit of both the above. Fun, classy and the sprite is a Speccy mascot.

I’m voting Koktoni Wilf, but I kind of hope Knight Lore wins...

This is difficult. I've only played Kokotoni Wilf and I didn't like it one little bit! I will have to abstain from this one :)

Has to be Knight Lore for me.

I had more difficulty thinking of what I'd rate in my second place (if there was a vote for it), and after a bit of deliberation I'd probably pick Kobyashi Naru. One of the few adventure games I managed to finish. Fairly short but a great budget game.

Tough one. Kwik Snax was great, but a bit derivative by the time it came out. Knightlore is horribly overrated. Krakout I enjoyed, until the ball eating faces appear and utterly ruin the game. And of the remaining, I think it has to be Kokotoni Wilf, it was a long way from perfect but I enjoyed it a lot back in the day.
