Description of Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight

Yet another Amiga hit that failed to dent the PC game market, Moonstone is an excellent RPG-flavored action game that puts you in the shoes of a medieval Knight in search of the Moonstones that will bring the Gods' gift that will aid in vanquishing the Great Dragon.

In a nice twist from other RPGs, the various phases of the moon affect the creatures' strength and are key to the Moonstones' power. Journey to the five corners of England to fight monsters and opposing knights to gain treasure. MobyGames describes the game in more detail:

"Something's happening in these lands, and the only hope seems to be the moonstone. You, as a chosen knight from the druids are about to find it and bring it back. The game can be played from 1 to 4 players at once, with no difference between solo and multiplayer as no matter how many players play, the story stays the same for everyone. However, if you choose to play with only one player/knight, the other three will be the computer rivals.

Wandering through the map, you can visit enchanted places, towns where you can buy equipment or try your luck in gambling, but mostly visited places on the map will be cabins which represents the places where certain enemy beasts are. Each spot has about two or more beasts which after defeating them can be rewarding in a certain way, depending on game's randomize placement. Also, for example, if the place has three beasts and you kill two before you die, next time you (or some other player) go back there, there'll be only one beast left to fight.

It's also possible for two players to run into each other and, once defeating the other, the one who prevails can steal the other player's money and/or weapons. Thus, searching for the moonstone begins, but that's only half of the story. The rest unfolds once you find it. "

Overall, a fun, if difficult multi-vel hack & slash fantasy action fest.

Does anybody know how to stop the game from crashing after a while? The same thing used to happen on my 500+

This game sorts out the men for the boys. After you pick you dead corpse out of the mud - and you will --- LOTS and counter the easy shit it gets better and better.

Needs a remake as the learning curve is steep as fuck but so rewarding.

Snowflakes need not apply unless you want to red pill yourself and grow hair on your chest and join the human race instead of destroy it with your infantised self.

Moonstone was and still is the greatest game ever. I played it on my Amiga 500. My copy of Moonstone had very irritating bug....when i had collected everything i needed and were ready to go to "stonehenge" crashes!!! I have never finished Moonstone, perhaps someday.
