Just finished it on 8bit Atari - Golem as the second player works perfect here :)

I remember getting this one late in 1986 (so the release date provided here is incorrect), and a friend of mine got his C64 version. We spent quite a lot of time beating this beast :-)

A few personal notes - I think the Atari had smoother game-play and provied action sounds, while the C64 version had killer background music instead. Also, on C64 the two of us could play at the same time, as the 2nd joystick controlled the golem.

Unforgettable game for me, far better (in terms of game-play) than (IMHO overhyped) Gauntlet.

The C64 version has better graphics
and a cool soundtrack.
still a good game!

The worldofspectrum.org site has the instructions for the original Druid, and it says that pressing 1 activates Key, pressing 2 activates invisibility, 3 is for golem, and 4 is for chaos. Control the golem with A. Use P to toggle fire and water.

This was notable at the time as a stopgap before an official Gauntlet version appeared on the Spectrum...several "Gauntlet-alikes" were released (including a radical remake of Atari's "Dandy," the ORIGINAL Gauntlet) before the official one finally came along.

Pretty amazing game. About 20 years ago I would have known about the golem thing ;) ... I think I also finished the game completely... I was addicted and later changed my nickname to DRUID aswell :)

This is a great Gauntlet clone. It is not so big as Gauntlet but in my opinion it plays much better (more responsive).
