Relive the classic that started it all! A time of lusty wenches and black-hearted villains. King Richard has been murdered and England thrown into civil war! Amidst the ringing clash of steel and the thunder of charging steeds the bold Saxon knights have chosen you to lead them into battle against the hated Normans. Players will compete in grand tournaments of joust, siege castles and raid enemy strongholds in their attempt to find the lost crown of England. Enlisting the support of Robin Hood, players will have to outwit their enemies to control England and restore order to a war-torn land.

Originally released in 1986 by Cinemaware, Defender of the Crown set new standards by combining strategy and action in one of the most memorable medieval action games in history.
