[Found: Prince] Game with Dire Straights type intro music!?

I’m usually pretty good at remembering games but this one’s got me really stumped!

Unfortunately I can’t remember much about the game itself, but what I can (sort of) remember is the music… I’m sure it was the intro music, and it was sampled which sounded very much like Dire Straights. No vocals, just a kind of arpeggio ballad or something. I kinda remember the intro screen too, I think it had a castle in the background on the right, and knight (or knights) in the foreground with red/blue flags or something…all hand drawn – not digitized.



Any ideas guys?

No mate, definitely not - thanks for the post but I remember Garrison well. I see the resemblance, but the game I’m thinking of was based around medieval times. The title/intro screen was quite colourful too I seem to recall…

Nope, thanks though…

I’d probably say it was around 1989 when it was released…?

Ha – yep, spot on! Shame my description wasn’t as good! “I think it had a castle in the background on the right”, what was I thinking!?

Gonna fire it up now. Thanks everyone…
