About the Story

This is the World's first 'funnyised' graphic adventure game. It's completely zany, is guaranteed to make you laugh, and is full of attractive, colourful pictures. Included is a cartoon illustrated story to help you on your quest to find the Grail.

This is a challenging and very unusual adventure. May the Rabbit be with you, and all your Knightmares funny ones!

Program written by Chris Newcombe. Program inspired by the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

If you enjoy pointless locations, this is your game!, June 9, 2010
by Bernie (Fredericksburg, VA)

Really, I'd like to give this game 1.5 stars. It has more charm than the Eureka C64 games that I played, and I appreciated the attempt at humor, even if many of the in-jokes are too dated to be understood.

Like many other C64 games, the text is accompanied by pixilated graphics that you must wait to load before typing the next command. (This is no more than 1 second, but will get annoying quickly, especially with the very large number of empty locations you must traverse.) The game features instant death at some locations, a primitive parser, and a dearth of room names. Handily, the game does list the objects and exits at each location, bringing the frustration factor down a bit.

Overall, it's not a game to bother playing. But if you feel the urge, I managed to play it using a C64 interpreter I found at http://www.ccs64.com/ I can't vouch for it being virus-free or safe to download, but it did run the games.
