Pentagram

 This is the last Ultimate title to feature the much loved character Sabreman, who had starred in Sabre Wulf, Underwurlde and knight Lore, he was also supposed to star in one more game entitled Mire Mare.

 The game goes back to the Filmation classic look of the knight Lore and Alien 8 games, and the instructions once more give little clue as to what the player has to achieve, which is a shame as the game is far deeper in depth than either of the aforementioned classics.

 First the player must fill buckets in the magic wells, then put the magical water over a series of dilapidated obelisks, which rejuvenate, then in a previously empty room, the Pentagram of the title appears on the floor, the task now is to collect various runes and place them on the corners of the shape.

 All this while working through the various traps in the rooms, and avoiding the creepy crawlies, for which Sabreman has developed sorcerer's powers and can now fire balls of fire, stay in a room too long and mummies and witches will start to appear, which are immune to his new found powers.

 Pentagram was also available on MSX Computers.
