A downloadable game

This is a C64 port of the amazing MSX game Night Knight. C64 code, graphics and sound by Aris Kavalos. Original MSX version by the legendary  Juan J. Martinez.

Sir Bernard is cursed. The only way he can get some sleep at night is by taking a long walk, which is not easy at all when you live in an enchanted castle! 

Can you help him complete all 80 stages and break the curse? 


Use Joystick in port 2. Press P during gameplay and a level code will appear on the score panel. Type the code on the intro screen and press fire to proceed immediately to that particular level.

Great little game, so much fun. We really enjoy playing it. Brilliant programming Aris, I really hope you do some more games because you’ve got a real talent.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am really glad that you enjoyed it!

Very nice conversion with excellent playability. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 00:59:30. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂


Thank you so much!

Maybe there would be a way to display the final score directly after loosing all lives in order to compare the score when you play it with multiple people. 

This project has been completed, but it's a really good idea for a future one. Thank you!

This game is the star for our hole familiy. We are playing it since a couple of days every evening.

Thank you, so nice that you and your family enjoyed it!

I love this game. Thanks a ton for porting it <3

Thank you!

Well done!  It's a difficult game, but not frustratingly so.  Thanks for adding to my catalog of fun games on my C64/128!

Thank you for your kind words!

I saw, loved it and played it - nice port very addictive - thankx!

You are welcome! I am glad you enjoyed it!

Have you tried the latest version of VICE? It should work on VICE without any problem. Maybe your prg is corrupted, try to download it again. Hope that helps!

it seems the file was corrupted, dl again plus a few other settings, now i'm happy playing your amazing game. Thanks!

Great game, it really nails the 'just one more go' feeling, top stuff👍

Thank you very much!!!

Really fun game! Don't know the original version, but this one seems flawless. Plays very smooth! But it is hard... so I'm cheating by saving snapshots... ;-)

Thank you for your nice words!


Great game, but I think a jump down would be a better solution than jumping off the platform 😊

How on earth can you create a game like this, if this is your first time ?? :) really enjoy the game and love the music

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!!!

About time the C64 gets some MSX arcade love. We have too much crap on the platform.

Thanks for your comment!!!

Such an addictive game! The only thing missing IMO is a high-score save feature. Would be awesome if you could still add that. Otherwise, well done on a brilliant addictive game.

Thank you very much for your nice words and suggestion!

Nice game. Platformers usually aren't my thing to be honest (more of a hardcore SHMUP and RPG guy) but I really enjoy this one


very good

Very nice game, but the time limit makes the game hard very fast... . Cute graphics. Really like it!

Thank you!!!

This is a really good conversion of the original MSX version. Night Knight on the MSX is one of my favorite games, so I was excited, when it was released for the C64, too.

What I noticed is, that in the first level, the bottom wall in the center is missing. I would appreciate it, if you could add it in the C64 version, so that they are the same. I haven't found any other big differences yet.
The picture shows level 1 on the C64 (left) and MSX (right).


Thank you very much for your nice words. Glad you like it! Congrats for spotting the difference, but unfortunately that's the final version. Uploading a new version will make my friend Didi of Laxity really upset 😉

You think it is going to be easy then the time start running out. Would like to be able to disable the music. Thanks for making this port, lots of fun.

You are welcome! You can enable/disable music by moving the joystick left or right on intro screen.

Thank you.

very good

Thank you Marco!

Great games, but horribly hard... Very enjoyable too!


Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it

Very good game, thanks for your workings! https://cutt.ly/4W0khAu :)


You are welcome! Thanks for your post on Facebook. Cheers!

I really like this game and even more I like being able to play it directly on the C64!


Thank you! And yes playing it on the good old C64 is the real deal!

Great game!

Thank you very much for your video!!! I really appreciate it!

Great port of this wonderful game! I do think I found a small bug. The code for level 12 isn't accepted by the game. Thanks for this pleasant surprise :)

Thank you very much for your kind words and your feedback regarding the bug. I have uploaded a new version that fixes the problem. You also have to change the third number of level 12 code from 8 to 1. Cheers!
