Man, this game is really something. I don't know if I like it or dislike it to be honest. It seems really interesting but also really flawed.

What do you all think of it? Did it ever get sequels or other releases?

Just play the good konami game on the MSX this one ripped off Knightmare

This one?

Looks way more forgiving than King's Knight. That game doesn't pull punches.

Incidentally, not surprised to see it's a copy, Squaresoft seemed big on copying other company's games, at least until they released Final Fantasy and finally got some new ideas to fill their sails.

Were any other games like this ever made? Vert shooters obviously continued, but fantasy RPG/vert shooter hybrids? Despite its cruelty I actually kind of like King's Knight, and I'd like to see another attempt made at that kind of game (or perhaps I would make it myself).

Square was known to make shitty clones from rad racer (aka highway star) to 3D world runner (aka JJ)

Not as rare a combination ad you'd think.

lt's shit.

Like this anon

said, it's a bad clone of a much, much better game. The design is terribly unfun and intentionally unfair in order to try and make the game last longer. Its multi-character system seems interesting, but it's useless nonsense in practice.

I thought rad racer was an outrun clone. You're telling me it was actually a Deep Purple clone? Man, square before FF was a weird company.

I don't really understand the multiple characters either to be honest, did they ever interact? Far as I could tell, it was just a way to divide your progress in four and make the game take way longer.

I thought the jumping onto mountains/buildings thing was neat, but it didn't seem like it had much of a purpose. Also, some of the points are basically memorization, but unlike other scrolling shooters that I've played, it kills you and then new character. No chance to keep going and see what's past it, or to check what the right path would be.

I'd like to see a new sequel, I think it's a concept that warrants further exploration.

Funny how even FF is a shitty clone of DQ.

Though to be fair, you could just as well say that both are clones of Ultima with mixtures of Wizardry thrown in.
