Guess that game!

Post by DaVince » Fri Oct 15, 2010 23:20

Edit: this is now a thread where you describe a game, perhaps give a screenshot, and people have to guess what game it is.


Here's a thread dedicated to describing a game you know, but don't remember the name of. And then hopefully someone can answer that question for you.


I actually have a game that I've been looking for forever. It's a DOS platform game where you're a knight, and you have to go to and through different areas, mostly landscapes and castles. Water kills. The game is challenging but I found it to be very fun.

Does anyone know what game I am talking about? What's it called? I miss that game.

What type of gameplay? Action/Adventure, RPG, Point and click, Text only, Graphics with text commands?
The only think I can think of is Ghosts and Goblins, but didn't think that was for DOS.

Heretic or Hexen comes to mind also.

I'm also looking for such a platformer for dos, but wherever it's was knight or not, I don't remember. Does it include wells? Does in the first level you start moving from left to the right?

I'm pretty sure you're talking about The Last Knight of Camelot. (Please tell me if I'm wrong.) I actually went through hell myself trying to find out the name of that game a year ago..

Yep, we had the very same thread.

And I'm still looking for this:

I'm looking for an old CGA platformer (not smooth scrolling no...) where you played as Dracula and you could transform into a bat or a werewolf. That was awesome, but I don't know what it's called.

nobody ever heard of it?

The Last Knight of Camelot? Hyh! I don't know for Davince, but that really looks as the game I was looking for! Though... I'm not sure yet. I didn't remember the water. Also, there weren't any wells... I might mistaken it for some other game... But I remember there were some castle parts of the game that looked alike... Also not sure, but I think the graphics was looking more like this:

Oh well, thanx for showing this game. It's the closest of the games I've discovered yet.

This game looks like it used the Jill of the Jungle/Xargon engine. Just by looking at the style of the game, as well as how the character jumps and falls.

No sadly that's not it. You played as Dracula, and it was more or less a pure platformer without all those adventure elements.

I didn't notice it, sorry. Never looked into that thread because it didn't actually make me think people describe games to have them told what it was. :P
