_Stormbringer_ is the fourth and final game to star Magic Knight, and the
only one to make it onto 16-bit systems. Magic Knight must meet with his
alter-ego, the Off-White Knight, by reaching his castle hideout – which means
clearing 64 screens of adventure.
As with the rest of the series, the game uses a largely visual system, in
which a press of the fire button calls up a menu of options, such as
‘examine’, ‘pick up’ or ‘cast spell. Selecting these calls up a sub-menu to
choose what should be examined or thrown, which objects to combine, which
spells to cast, and so on. The objects to be used include a chicken, a
disguise, and eggs. One new feature is that bolts of lightning are fired down
at Magic Knight from the sky, and these must be avoided.
