There's a free poster inside the box of this original game, but don't expect to see Kevin Costner (or Patrick Bergin film buffs). No, what in fact you get is a drawing of some smiling people in a woodland setting, which one presumes is Sherwood.
The idea is simple enough. Robin must rescue Marion,w ho is trapped inside a platform game. The Prince of Thieves must get through a castle to reach her, possibly enlisting the aid of the Prince of Persia who could be lost in the same castle looking for the same girl.
It's neat, simple, aimed at a younger audience (or user-ship as it should be) and it's absorbing. Well, for a platform game. The point is, how many more variations on platform games can there be? Well if you like your electronic gaming fun to be based around legends of the Dark Ages, this is a game you shouldn't be without.
For the rest of us, though, you'll find that Robin is better than many, even though it suffers a bit from jerkiness. Perhaps it's not worth getting if you've already got a lot of platform games, it's just another one, really.
