Very true and I'm happy these 10 days are over. Had a lot of work to do so it wasn't that bad.

Top three covered by EAB now.

Five attempts and this is my best today. Shadow of the Beast was the first Amiga game I've played and that must have been in year 1989, when friend bought Amiga 500. As a C64-owner I was more than impressed

I've got ADF troubles, and ADF's linked to above are giving me "You don't have permission to open this page"

any ideas? Can anyone send me the ADFs?

The final section of this game is so hard, even with full health after the castle. Earlier today I went from 12 HP to death before I even reached the boss. This time, a lot better, but still plenty of mistakes, which means I stay in second place behind Malko.

He posted some of the best longplays on Youtube, including all three of the SotB games. I had never seen SotB completed before I watched these, and learned how to complete them using his videos. This run in particular is incredible, completing the game with full health remaining and turning down health potions on the way.

RIP friend.
I found that quite helpful to tidy up my energy loss in the area before the castle.

The music is superb.
I never understood why the name of David Whitaker was missing in the game.
It's disrespectful from Reflexion !

I know the bug. It's good to know the beast knows how to unwind after a long day crossing the plains and stumbling through the dark castle.
