Kobayashi Naru

It was a hazy afternoon in the 80s and my mother had just collected my brother and I from school. We’d recently purchased a Spectrum 128k and mum had bought us a new game (always exciting). ‘it has a robot on the front’ she replied when we asked what was on the cover. The game in question was in fact Kobayashi Naru by Mastertronic. A text based first person adventure game with inventory management, combat and movement options. Of course all this was slightly complex for a 7yr old, but I found the world mystical and somewhat enchanting. Never finished the game, but may return to it one day.
