'What if.....' say they, 'we made a game based upon the Knightmare artwork?'

I am excited. Those backgrounds aren't just straight rips from the first series, they've been cleaned up and recoloured. And I like the little dungeoneer sprite too.

Something to keep an eye on, I reckon. Ipod/Ipad games are usually the project of choice for aspiring developers to net some quick cash with a low-risk project which they can then use on bigger, more ambitious stuff. If this is successful, there's every chance some new KM stuff may be on the cards down the line...

Also, I can't have been the only one to look at the sprite and have a Fortress of Fear-related nostalgiagasm. Or perhaps I was. If so, disregard, socks, etc

There are shots of the original room paintings.

Looks interesting. But I think we'd need more information than this.

Also, Dungeoneers don't hold swords.

On the downside, this may very well be a cheap Zelda knockoff with no puzzle solvey KM goodness whatsover.

That would annoy, I will not deny.
