Camelot Warriors is ridiculous. It’s a graphic adventure where you control a bloke who has been sent back in time to the days of King Arthur to retrieve items from the future. You control a knight in armour around 4 very small levels collecting the objects, which include a phone, a can of coke and a pc monitor. Once collected, they return our hero back to present day and the game is complete. It’s quite a boring experience – one which I’m glad I didn’t pay ten pounds for back in the 80’s. The game is severely flawed and features a jet-set-willy-esque situation, where you can lose all your lives by entering a room in the wrong way.
Our hero finally reaches the end…
…and teleports back TO THE FUTURE!
The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives and energy cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final object is presented to the king at the top of his castle you are shown a picture of our hero back in bed with all the collected objects surrounding him. A message reading ‘FEAR NOT JOHNNY IT WAS ONLY A HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE.‘ is displayed at the bottom. The game then resets.
Neil: The game is very poor. I’m sure they could have squeezed a better ending in there somehow. 2/10.
Vinny: I’ve never actually played through this game and only really had a few glimpses, and so I am unable to share Neil’s frustrations of the game.
As for the ending, it’s kind of sweet and acceptable. I like the fact that there is a specific ending screen along with the ending message. It could have been a whole let better, but it could have been a millions times worst and not had an ending at all – which is what I was expecting.
Brendan Phoenix: Same sentiments – better than what I would have expected. Would have put money on this being a black screen with the word congratulations on it.
So not so bad after all.
Kungfufurby: Didn’t quite make sense… but I can see why the ending mentions that it is nothing but a mere nightmare. Otherwise this game would really be endless!
Andrew Fisher: Don’t think I’ve ever played more than a couple of screens of the game, but that is a decidedly average ending.
Andy Vaisey: Being a teacher, I crucify children who end their stories with, ‘and then I woke up’ or ‘it was just a dream’. This ending message just brings me out in a rash and wants me to start writing in red pen all over the screen. What a cop out…
FINAL SAY: It could be worse.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
