We are big fans of the CinemaWare Video Games releases in the mid to late 80's.
Cinemaware brought atmospheric cinema-like video games to all manner of systems but the releases we remember most were those on the Commodore Amiga.
Such video games as IT Came From The Desert, King Of Chicago and todays featured video game Defender Of The Crown!
The Cinemaware games took their video games inspiration from the movies and Defender Of The Crown does so in the form of the classic swashbuckling movies such as Robin Hood (Good Old R.H Even Features In Game!)
Defender Of The Crown was the Elder Scrolls of it's time and set new standards in video games graphics and involving gameplay
So how have Cinemaware ported this beauty of a Video Game over to Android then?
Cinemaware have announced that the classic 1985 game Defender Of The Crown has returned into the video games world of 2014 on Android mobile devices....
That's right, a new era on Android has begun!
So what's the game all about then?
It's a time of lusty wenches and black hearted villains.....
King Richard has been murdered and England has been thrown into civil war!
So, It's up to you to protect the kingdom and defend freedom against the hated Normans!
BUT .... Victory does not come easy!
To save England your skills as a cunning swordsman and military leader will be severely tested.
Should you succeed you'll win the Crown of England and the love of the beautiful damsel!
Defender of the Crown – The Emulated Amiga Edition features the original game, complete with all of the original strategy, story and gameplay sequences.
The game also features a customized and improved mobile control interface.
Don't hesitate and enjoy heart pounding action as you enter joust tournaments, swordfight to save a fair maiden, steal treasure and siege castles!
