The sort of game we used to expect from Ultimate, and makes as good use of the Spectrum as can be imagined. Read Review
Not the best game Hewson's ever released. It's by no means crap, it's just not as good as it's hyped up to be. Read Review
Another stormer from Raffaelle Cecco. For once, I can't see a thing worth whingeing about. Just buy it. Read Review
Free the imprisoned fairy folk before they are obliterated by an evil Queen. She stoops to conquer the land Stormlord inhabits, destroying the peaceful euphoria with each annihilation.
Stormlord's mission - free the captured and defend the peace and tranquility of his realm. Unfortunately, he must repel the wicked monarch, but should he fail, the evil Queen and her dark sovereignty will reign forever...
The game objective is to release the impounded fairies before time runs out. Each level of the game has a small number of fairies that must be released before you can progress onto the next level.
Scattered about Stormlord's world are various objects that must be used intelligently to free the fairies and help get through certain parts of the world. To pick up an object or to swap an already held object with one on the ground, simply walk into it. Only time and practice will grace you with the knowledge of where to use certain objects and in what order they should be used, etc.
You will encounter Venus fly traps, huge worms, flies, dragons and many more foes on your travels. All of these must either be destroyed or avoided at all costs.
To gain access to far and remote parts of the world, powerful spring-boards can be used to cover large distances in a few seconds. To use a spring-board, simply step onto the middle of it and you will be propelled into the air.
When all the fairies have been released, Stormlord will take part in a mini game in order to try and gain an extra life. The object of this sub-game is to capture as many tears as possible within the allocated time. An extra life is awarded when more than 10 tears have been collected.
Instead of throwing thunder bolts and swords as normal, Stormlord will now blow a limited number of kisses, represented by red hearts, at the flying fairies. If a heart should touch a fairy, she will fall in love, drop a tear for Stormlord to collect, and then fly away. But be quick as the tears will dissolve into the ground quite soon after landing.
O - Left, P - Right, Q - Jump, A - Crouch, SPACE - Fire
The longer you hold down the "jump" key, the higher the jump. The longer you hold down the "fire" key, the further bolts go. When held down for the maximum amount of time, a more powerful sword will be thrown instead (use these for larger foes on later levels.)
To pause the game or frame advance it, press CAPS SHIFT and SYMBOL SHIFT simultaneously.
To abort the game, press Y, U, I, O and P simultaneously.
From left to right the panel sections are as follows:
1) Lives left 2) Elapsed time represented by a sun that changes to a moon 3) Score 4) Currently held object (When blank nothing is held.) 5) 1st digit = fairies so far found. 2nd digit = total amount of fairies to be found on the current level.
