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 You're <i>Gandalf</i> the Wizard, member of the <i>Istari</i> order riding <i>Shadowfax</i> the fastest horse in </i>Middle Earth</i>. Well, that's me saying... because I like both.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum This one turned to magenta. One of the colours present in the Spectrum of their death. Doesn't matter at all because it's always the same but resembles a cave painting.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum The game uses Rotoscoping techniques making its graphics fabulous and very fluid for its time.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum Looks like Buffalo Bill riding, delivering the mail. And it looks like the icon for the Portuguese mail distribution company.
