SGM version includes easy mode, with extensive modifications. Game can save high score and progress, so you can use warp doors between playthroughs (as long as you know their locations).

I wonder who's going to publish Knightmare (and Goonies too). All I know is that it won't be Team Pixelboy... :)

Checkout the Opcode website for info and you can also use the almighty search engine to find info on this game (a port from the MSX system) as well as YouTube videos. Really, it's that easy.

It'll all fall into place sooner or later.. hopefully. ;)

 

There is more publishers out there, Im sure someone will take on the opportunity.. Although I thought OpCode published its own games, the early ones.. ?

At this point I am inclined to publish myself. I have the infrastructure in place now, games will come assembled from China, only work I will have is to place them in the mail. Not that I enjoy doing that, but still a lot less work than assemble the damn things by hand...

So I guess you don't have to glue boxes together. Lucky you. ;)

I'm well aware of things called search engines.  I did not ask for guidance or someone to send me any links.  I simply stated I glad to hear about more games, though I hadn't heard of this one.

Knightmare is one of the coolest MSX games ever. Different weapons (each weapon with 2 different levels), magic powers, 8 different stages with different bosses, dozens of enemies and a cool ending. And now with easy mode, it is a lot more playable for those of us who have reached our 40s... Oh, and the game has a super cool sequel, Maze of Galious...

One of my favourite MSX 1 games, can't wait for this improved version - mark me down for one.

Being a Metroid fan at heart, I have to admit I prefer Maze of Galious over the original Knightmare, but you knew that already. I think I'll relax tonight and spend some time looking at some YouTube footage of Maze of Galious.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to any and all SGM games you have in the pipeline. :)
