Description official description

Travel back to the Age of Chivalry when knights were bold, galloping across the countryside and rescuing damsels in distress. This game recreates the time of wizards and the Knights of the Round Table. Lancelot is a three-part interactive fiction adventure, spanning the complete saga from the foundation of the Order to its finest hour - the quest for the Holy Grail.

Guide Lancelot through his many exploits at Camelot, battle with wayward knights, and win the love of Guinever and Elaine. The challenge which has fascinated treasure hunters through the centuries is now yours - and you'll need all your strength, wit and valor to achieve your goal. To get the highest possible score, you should only kill combat foes when it is absolutely essential to survival.

The game's command set includes the ability to issue instructions to other knights, and to automatically GO TO a place you have previously visited.

There was a competition associated with the game: Within the text of the whole game, there were a number of words written in capital letters. Whoever managed to send a complete list of these words, would receive a golden grail goblet (about £5000 worth).
