Pheonix Ware is pleased to announce this re-release of the amazing Pentacorn Quest for the ZX Spectrum 128k, a game originally released in 2015 and subsequently released on a physical tape in 2018. We loved the game so much we spoke to the developer to make some small adjustments to the in-game English and create some new artwork for our physical release.
THIS GAME IS FOR THE ZX SPECTRUM 128K ONLY
Acorns … Magic acorns. In the world of Pentacorn Quest, acorns are made of solid gold, have great power and magic, and are a cause of dispute between the forces of Light and Darkness. But while these two factions went to war, the acorns mysteriously disappeared.
The objective of the game is to find the five missing acorns. It is rumoured that they are hidden in The Crack, but whoever ventured to this place came back empty-handed. It is now up to you to find the acorns and deposit them in the sacred sanctuary, solving many enigmas in between.
Pentacorn Quest is a mix of platformer and arcade adventure, with eight different types of enemies to avoid, countless puzzles to solve and a magical world to discover.
