Robin Hood: Defender of the Crown
While we talk a lot about genre-crossing games such as Deus Ex and Black & White as if it's something new, we often forget golden oldies like North & South and Defender Of The Crown, both excellent examples of their day, both combining platform action and strategy, the latter of course currently being updated in full-3D form as Robin Hood: Defender Of The Crown.
The new Cinemaware team promise 3D jousting, real-time strategy in the form of 3D castle sieges and massed land battles, plus Risk-style resource management across a map of old England - the aim to oust Prince John and return King Richie to the throne as the eponymous Bob Hood.
Unfortunately, we've a long wait for the final game - well over a year. Still, you could always download the old game on your favourite Amiga or Atari ST emulator.
