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 The game uses Rotoscoping techniques making its graphics fabulous and very fluid for its time.
Shadowfax ZX Spectrum The game has some tricks in its sleeve. The distance has to be calculated when a shot is fired. This was a miscalculated one passing through the enemy causing him no harm.
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 After being shot, the riders immediately loose their powers and become inoffensive.
