Game Review

Defender of the Crown II is the sequel to the original Defender of the Crown, it was developed by Sachs Enterprises and published by Commodore Electronics in 1993 for the Amiga CD32. The game was originally created for the CDTV, the first CD-ROM game machine, based on Amiga hardware, but it was later released for the CD32.

The historical strategy game improves upon its wildly successful predecessor by enhancing the sword fighting and jousting. It also adds different types of ammo for use during castle sieges.

Defender of the Crown II is somewhat more of a remake than a true sequel, but tweaks to the game and storyline keep it from feeling like the same thing over again. While your aim was conquest in the original, your ultimate goal in this sequel is to make money. Set in medieval times, you are tasked with collecting a ransom to save King Richard from his captors. With a two year time limit, you must win contests, rescue maidens, take over territories, and lay siege to castles all to turn a profit. However, your enemies will not make this easy on you so strategy is key. Save the king, restore the kingdom, and become the stuff of legends.
