    Here’s all the reviews I could find for Blackthorne. Just the 2 this month and the one mag I have a near complete run of, PC Zone, didn’t bother reviewing it at all which would at least explain why I didn’t hear about the game at the time. Not that either of these reviews would have made me likely to buy it.

    Weirdly I think this game would be better received today than it was back then.

    Also “too many buttons to remember”. Errr.. how many are there besides the arrow keys? Four? Haha

    You are probably right. It’s a plus point for me to be able to play another game like Flashback/Prince Of Persia these days. I would say it’s fair criticism that Blackthorne isn’t necessarily better than any of the games it is copying. £40 does seem a bit steep looking at it now given all of those would have been budget titles by then.

    Yeah, definitely. Maybe the price is also where it shows its SNES-roots, where budget games weren’t as common as on the PC?
