This, despite its name, is a 'Kong' game. Only here it is an evil black knight who has kidnapped your girlfriend. In all respects it plays like a 'Kong' game with barrels to jump, holes to jump, ladders to climb and so on. There is an umbrella to be used once per life or screen to help brake a fall through a hole. The jumping action is highly finicky and difficult to time and unfair where there are three barrels in a row to be jumped. Graphics are small although bright and clean looking, but not much use of colour. An above average, difficult game, but in the end not very playable for long. 3 screens, 4 lives, 1 skill level. Overall CRASH rating 64% m/c.
