> CAVELON by Jetsoft / Ocean Software


• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

# We dine well here in Camelot... We eat ham and jam and spam a lot #...

I've just completed Cavelon by Ocean, and throughout playing it I had the Monty Python Camelot song stuck in my head. I just can't take all this 'knights of the round table' stuff seriously any more. Anyway, Cavelon is a simple little game where you have to control a knight and collect pieces of the door to access the six levels within the tower.


Level 6 is complete!


Ah - the castle door is in place.


She's got funny arms!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: On collecting the final piece of the door on the sixth level (avoiding the ghost's ectoplasm bullets), our hero is shown outside the castle with the rescued damsel, thus concluding the story. You are then asked to try again and the game restarts at level one.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: The game isn't amazing, but not bad for it's time. I expected this kind of end. I think it's good enough. I'm happy enough with the ending. 5/10.
     
  • Vinny: Hold on a sec! I'm seriously confused. Seriously confused. I've always believed that Camelot and Excaliba (by Mastertronic) were one in the same game! I mean - take a look at them both and tell me they're not identical. Okay - so they may appear to be different games if you play them, but I've never played Cavelon because I thought it was the same game but with a different name. Wow - all that time and I had no idea...

    Nice enough ending and what you'd expect for this type and era of game. 4/10 from me.
  • Frank Gasking: Apparently, Excaliba is Cavalon 2. Originally by JetSoft. I *think* that shortly after Cavalon for Ocean, the coder went his separate ways with JetSoft as a publishing label, didn't do very well and then sold them off to Mastertronic. BMX Stunts and Quari were originally sold by JetSoft I think via Mail Order (as was Cavelon II I guess). I guess all the games are by the same developer, as they have the same feel to them.
  • Andy Vaisey: Blast from the past! I know about this game, but have never played it; I'll remedy that tonight. But not for the ending. 'Now Try Again' my arse!
  • Gaz Spence: VERY similar to EXCALIBA in game play and with the ending. An ultimate rehash really so the ending should be docked a few points for unoriginality!
  • Andrew Fisher: One of those games I've heard of but never played much more than a few minutes.

    For the time, showing a try again message was pretty common - but at least there is some form of reward for your hard work.

FINAL SAY: On to the Holy Grail...

G.E. RATING: 4.5 / 10
