Brought to you by Cinemaware® in association with Manomio

The Age of Chivalry!

A time of lusty wenches and black hearted villains. King Richard has been murdered and England is thrown into civil war! Amidst the ringing clash of steel and the thunder of charging steeds the bold Saxon knights have chosen you to lead them into battle against the hated Normans. Victory will not come easy. To save England your skills as swordsman and military leader will be severely tested. But should you succeed you'll win the Crown of England and the love of many a beautiful damsel!

100% accurate emulation allows you to play the classic Defender of the Crown in its original glory!

Heart pounding action as you rescue your lady from a foul Norman prison.

Majestic tournaments where you joust for fame, fortune and land.

Heroic battles featuring castle shattering giant catapults!

A unique blend of role playing and strategy combined with dazzling arcade style sequences.

Easy-to-use controls. No typing required!

Uh Oh ....

I expect an update VERY soon to get rid of that cursor ....

Even the guy who wrote the game's having awkwardness with it.
I haven't bought it yet -- it's 9:50 EST as I write this -- so maybe there's an option to turn it off & use direct touchscreen.

There better be ....

Instant NOT buy until the UI is updated to actually use this touch screen technology everyone is talking about. That cursor is awful. And I loved this game :-(

This is the original version from the Amiga, which was played with a mouse. It works exactly like a track pad and thus translates very nicely to touch screen.

Cheers,

It's 12:40 EST & it's still a noshow in the AppStore.

I tried to buy it from the NZ store, but it wouldn't let me.

What gives?

What gives is that you need to wait until 11 PM EST for it to be released in the US.

(look at the first post - these NZ games get released as the world turns and the time changes until the appropriate date)
