[2] DEFENDER OF THE CROWN CDTV features minor graphical improvements and major sound enhancements (incl. two CDDA soundtracks) over the 1986 Cinemaware disk release.

[3] Unlike the disk release, the CDTV version contains an abridged on-line manual. The full printed CDTV manual, however, is available HERE.

[4] The Mical Game System used in the development of DOTC was written by Commodore Amiga software engineer and hardware designer Robert J. Mical.

[5] DEFENDER OF THE CROWN CDTV is CD32-compatible.


TRIVIA: According to the catalogue advert and on-line manual, DEFENDER OF THE CROWN CDTV is a tribute to classic Hollywood adventure movies, most notably The Adventures of Robin Hood and Ivanhoe, which brought to life tales of dashing heroes, damsels in distress and royal kingdoms (see HERE).
