Classic of the week: Defender Of The Crown
February 21, 2011
When Defender Of The Crown was released in 1986 it had the best graphics ever seen in a home computer game.
It’s a strategy game where the player assumes the role of a Saxon and tries to fight off the Norman hordes and wrestle for control of England.
The main game is played on a map view where you can build your army, conquer new territories and attack other players. There were various sub games like rescue a princess, play a tournament or attack a castle.
The game’s still worth playing today, although the controls of the action parts are quite difficult to handle.
