Remember This?

remember-this-090714Can you guess this old game from just one screenshot?

I’ll update this post with the answer at 5pm today if no one has guessed before then. Or if you do guess it before then, feel free to share your memories of a classic game.

Good luck!

    Dumbledore's Epic Journey.

    Hermit Man and the Peanut Butter Cave of Inferno!

    There's not nearly enough colour bleed for it to be a Spectrum game, it looks like a C64 game but I've got absolutely no idea what. Colour me stumped!

      Glad I've stumped you for once. You're right though, it is a C64 game.

    Trent's name wins hands down.

    I'm getting a 403 - forbidden on the image.

      Strange. It's definitely working. Refresh!

    If my memory serves me correctly that is Doriath.

    Damn... that screenshot takes me back.

      Good call - Must say that it's one of the few C64 games I've never seen before...

      Might have to hunt it out when I get home later on!

      Excellent work, Mr Cocks. I always knew you had a refined taste in games.

      Doriath is one of those forgotten classics. The mix of exploration, platforming and combat was pitch-perfect. And I loved the spell system that left you rooted to the spot - and vulnerable to attack - while you were controlling the magical projectile you'd just conjured. This was one of those games I spent weeks mapping out on my way to solving it.

      Did you realise that almost the entire eastern half of the world map was unpopulated, as if development had halted midway through?

    Nathan Cocks got it. A quick google of Doriath and I found the exact same dude from the pic. Based on Tolkien's works

    Oh man, I never finished that game until last month!
    Even then I had to use the Doriath map to cheat.

    It is in fact Doriath, I was never any good at it (seeing as though I played it when I was like 3 years old)
