SUPER ROBIN HOOD
& Reviewed by Neil Collins
Super Robin Hood is a standard platform game from
Codemasters. You play the part of Robin, who must rescue
Maid Marion from the castle. She seems to be under some
kind of spell, which you can break by collecting the
hearts which are scattered throughout the castle.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite energy cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have collected all the hearts, you have to make
your way to the top of the castle and find the room
where Maid Marion is imprisoned. If you get there
without all the hearts, nothing happens. If you get
there with all the hearts, the game freezes and then
goes to the high score table.

purchased this title way back in 1987 and spent many an
hour trying to complete it. I just couldn't manage it

I have seen it, I'm not interested any longer :( Poo and

slating for poor 'Congratulations' type ending messages
and just when I think that things can't get any worse, a
programmer comes up with the idea of just freezing the
game and skipping to the high score table. Genius! All
games should be like that; what an absolutely,
positively satisfying way to end a few hours of play...
- Brendan Phoenix:
Codemasters in rubbish ending alert - what a track
record these guys have! From memory can only recall that
half decent CJ ending when they are jumping out of that
- Andrew Fisher:
I don't know why this game has a good reputation,
particularly among Speccy and Amstrad owners - the C64
version is terrible, with its flickering and the insane
way the main character jumps. And what a surprise, a bad
- Gaz Spence:
Interestingly this was coded by the same guy who did
Scorpius. I'm with Merman on this - never understood its
appeal and the ending stinks.
FINAL SAY: There’s no ending really as such.
So I think this game deserves a zero.
