Cult Video Game Essentials: Highlander

Highlander was a video game tie-in to the Highlander movie that was released in 1986, the same year as the film. It was published by Ocean Software for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC home computers. It became more famous for how bad it was both in game play and its miss-spelling of character names from the film!

In the single-player mode the player plays as Connor MacLeod and must fight three opponents in one-on-one combat: his mentor Ramírez, then Fizir (Fasil in the film), before finally facing The Kurgen (spelt The Kurgan in the film).

In each fight the objective is to reduce the opponent’s health to zero, at which point he is decapitated and the player wins the fight… and that was it!
