- Ivanhoe -

Scrolling platform/action games have been around for almost as long as computer and video games have been around as well. Ivanhoe is a scrolling action game in which you play the knight Ivanhoe on his way to rescue king Arthur. There are loads of enemies standing in your way though and you only have your trusty blade and shield to help you. Luckily there are powerups you can find along the way one of which will even allow you to make a double of yourself allowing you to hit enemies on two sides at once!

The levels are a 2D affair which means you can only walk to the left and right, the enemies can come at you from both sides so you will have to watch it. Most levels consists of your basic enemies coming at you and at the end of which there is a boss waiting for you. Ivanhoe has an energy bar which is obviously depleted when enemies hit you but it can be filled up by picking up some powerups or finishing the level at which point you regain all your energy. There are some differint levels like one where you ride a horse and you can shoot your crossbow or bonus levels where you fight a single large enemy which can gain you an extra life if you win. Your basic enemy isn't very smart though and using you shield as protection and striking back at them with your sword makes quick ends of them. The bosses are another matter though they all have their own lifebar which you will have to bring down to defeat them and they are obviously much stronger and bigger than you are.

Ivanhoe is the kind of actiongame that was very popular back in the late 80's and early 90's. There isn't a lot of depth to the story or game but the fact that there are some different levels in between the regular ones is a great addition to the game. Graphically the characters are large and welldrawn although the animation can be a bit on the simple side. It's a pretty fun game to play though and you won't beat the game easily so give it a go.

Overal rating: 8/10

This game was released for two different systems here are some notes:
Amiga Released in 1990.
Altough both versions are pretty much identical this one has some extra trainers if you need that to help you beat the game.
Atari ST Released in 1990.
Identical to the amiga version in pretty much every way.
