Splendiferous!

  • Summary: The original Sabre Wulf was made for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 back in 1984. It spawned 3 sequels called Knight Lore, Nightshade and Underwurlde (plus 2 further sequels that never got released called Pentagram and Mire Mare). Now arrives the 4th sequel, once again called Sabre Wulf. Sabre Man (our hero of the franchise) is now quite old but still has that spirited Indiana Jones/David Attenborough fondness for adventure about him.

  • Excerpt: "...I wasn't even born. But Sabre Wulf was released on the ZX spectrum. Even back then this was an obscure machine. However the game, made by Ultimate, was a hit (relatively speaking). Ultimate, now Rare, decided there's life in the old dog yet. The hero of the first, Sabreman, is now a little older and wiser but the kleptomaniac Wulf is back, freed by the nefarious Dr Doolittle-Goode. Prepare to put your thumbs and brain to the test.

Best game on the GBA

  • Summary: I played and loved the original Sabre Wulf on the Spectrum back in the '80s. The creators, 'Ultimate: Play The Game', were THE most original and exciting programmers in the country. The company have gone through a number of changes since then, including renaming themselves Rare, but this game is, as I hoped, the most original and exciting game I have played for years.

Sabre Wulf (GBA)

Jonathan Pymm "ginger-beer", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This is an excellent game which leads gently from easy levels to very hard. Ideal for picking up and putting down,.....although I have spent many happy hours curled up in the corner of the sofa trying to jump over cactus...... There is lots of variety, pretty graphics and the whole game was written with an excellent sense of humour. The game play is excellent and there is no nausea inducing lag or dragging which can be a problem with some games.

Classic game remade with care

  • Summary: Although made by Rare, the game isn't stamped with Rare's own personality, rather retaining the the looks and feel of the original. The game is simple in structure; you must defeat Sabre Wulf once again by collecting pieces of a protective amulet. Although you chat and discover the plot from an overhead perspective, once you discover a lair of Sabre Wulf the game switches to traditional 2D platformer.
