Shadowfax
by Mike Singleton, Sean Logan
Postern Ltd
1983
Crash Living Guide Issue 01, February 1984   page(s) 57

Producer: Postern, 16K £5.95
Shadowfax came out with a lot of ballyhoo at £7.95, which was grossly overpriced, so it's nice to see Postern have dropped it now. No one can complain about the graphics which are quite excellent. Unfortunately the game has very little else to offer. You're mounted on your white charger (the inlay blurb might lead to suppose this was some Hobbit-like adventure) and riding against the black horses that gallop on from the left at random heights. You can fire a bolt at the approaching enemy but you must then explode the bolt at exactly the tight moment. And that's the game - you are up against the points. Mind you, it is mesmerising, so you do make mistakes. Definitely a game to get a look at first - if you like the idea, you won't regret the graphics. No joystick option.
