The four-page article has particular emphasis on the computer games. It includes interviews from Hugo Myatt, David Rowe, Jon Dean and Mev Dinc (creators of the 8-bit game), Tony Crowther (creator of the Amiga game) and Knightmare.com webmaster, Alan Boyd.

The article features original artwork from David Rowe, who describes how his work formed the backgrounds that were seen by viewers. Other gems include the new innovations that the game brought.

When a team lost you could almost hear the groan sound over the land.
