Knights 016 Released

Knights version 016 has been released!

Download it from:

The main new feature is the addition of a new mouse-and-keyboard control system. The idea behind this is to try to make the game a bit more user-friendly for newbies. Although I think there is still more work to do in this area — e.g. a better tutorial might be nice — I think the new controls are a good start and hopefully will allow more players to enjoy the game.

If you have any comments on the new controls, or ideas for improvements, please feel free to comment below.

The old control system is, of course, still available. You can select which control system to use from the Options screen.

Enjoy the release 🙂

Next on the agenda is improving modding support (including Lua scripting) so that people can make their own mods for Knights.

  1. I was lying in the sun, minding my own business when I suddenly remembered “Knights”, which I used to play on my Amiga 500/1200. I hoped to find some gameplay-videos on YouTube to revive old memories. But what do I find instead? The working game for Windows! Am I dreaming? THANKS!

  2. Thanks for the comment Paul and I’m glad you like the game. I too have fond memories of playing Knights against my brother back in the Amiga days. Good times 🙂

    I am still planning to add more features (such as support for user-created mods, as I mentioned above) — but unfortunately I haven’t had any time to work on that in the last couple of months. I do plan to get round to it eventually though, and I’ll post some sort of update when I do…

  3. Great Remake! Thanks for the port. No wI don’t need to start an Amiga emulator any more. 🙂

    (But I hope there will be some little improvements in-game too.)

    Thx for ya work!
