Retro Gamer magazine

Post by Naitch » Tue Oct 14, 2008 11:02 am

A recent issue of Retro Gamer magazine had a feature on Atic Atac.

The heading is Atic Atac: A Knightmare Of A Game.

However, the article doesn't mention Knightmare once, even though it was one of the main inspirations (along with Knight Lore) for Knightmare. :o

Also, the WWE have a charater called Festus.

Re: Knightmare references in magazines

I casually read through Retro Gamer magazine today while standing in WH Smith, and chanced across a feature on a game named Knightmare - only not one of the ones based on our Knightmare. It's a scrolling shoot-'em-up in a mediaeval setting, and there's some information about it here - it even features a "Nightmare Castle"!

While doing a bit of research, I stumbled across another strange connection: Miki Higashino, the composer for the game, also composed the music for another game... called Life Force!

COINCIDENCE? YOU DECIDE!*
