 +==== Forbidden Forest ====
 +The original game was released in 1983 on both the [[hardware:​Commodore 64]], and Atari 8-bit computers. You are an archer, restricted to the bottom of the screen, and tasked with hunting monsters. As the game progresses the time changes from day to night.

 +==== Beyond the Forbidden Forest ====
 +The sequel was released in 1985, this time only on the C64. It added multiple locations, and the abilities to walk '​into'​ the map---scaling the sprite as players did so. It sounds amazing, and mechanically and visually it is beautiful and clunky in a particularly videogamey way.

 +==== Forbidden Forest ====
 +The 2003 iteration was released for PC, this time in full 3-D. The game is played from a third-person perspective,​ but hanged to first-person when aiming and firing the game's only weapon; the bow. It seems to be missing all the the terrific graphics and music of its predecessors;​ it's about as charming as a homebrew [[hardware:​n64|N64]] game.
