Spellbound
Spellbound

Magic Knight's mentor and teacher, Gimbal the Wizard, has managed to bind you and seven other characters within a summon spell. The spell was intended to be an aid to Gimbal's quest for better tasting rice pudding.

Due to a slight typographical error that arose when the incantations were translated from ancient English to slightly less ancient English, things went a little bit wrong. Now our hero is trapped within a strange and unfamiliar land with a bunch of people from different slices of history!

Having released the wizard Gimbal from a nasty predicament at the end of Spellbound, Magic Knight is free to go back to 13th Century England and return home.

He must find all the pieces of a time machine so he can assemble it and travel to his own time. The Paradox Police are waiting thirty days into Magic Knight's future, so there's a time limit in the game.

Another window-mation menu driven adventure ensues with Stormbringer, published by Mastertronic in 1987, written by David Jones.

A cleverly constructed method of gameplay which was unique at the time and helped propell Magic Knight up to one of the classic speccy characters and games of its time.
