Description

Aiee! An endless stream of Nazgul! Control Gandalf on his great white horse as you zap your way through them. Avoid being hit by those black riders, while racking up points by blasting with Gandalfs magic lightning bolts. The game never ends as you progress down through the rows of ring wraiths. The horse graphics are based on the famed photographic series of a galloping horse by Eadweard Muybridge.

Shadowfax ZX Spectrum This a traditional Roman triangular formation. It's random I know, and it's not Roman it's just me pretending... but it's a good strategy though.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum Looks like Buffalo Bill riding, delivering the mail. And it looks like the icon for the Portuguese mail distribution company.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum The game uses Rotoscoping techniques making its graphics fabulous and very fluid for its time.
