Sport of Kings - National Hunt (PC)

Roogames' conversion of Lambourne Games National Hunt Horseracing Simulation

'Sport of Kings - National Hunt'

 

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest conversion, based on Lambourne Games' classic Sport of Kings dice-and-chart system.

 

It is actually six games in one as you can take control of a steeplechase season (over 100 horses and 100 races), or a hurdles season (80 horses and over 80 races), or take on the full season with over 200 races.

 

Fictional horses are provided which give each of the eight stables a different challenge.

 

As an added extra however, we have included a separate set of real horses and jockeys.  These horses are a combination of the great, the good and the not-so good.  The set includes the likes of Red Rum, Desert Orchid and Arkle.

 

We have added to the strategy in the race with two additional options to under pressure.

 

A fun 'game-within-a-game' pits your betting skills against the AI trainers in the game.  Win and each-way bets are possible, with a couple of experts to guide you to fortune or bankruptcy.

 

This is not a strict replay game, but one which requires you to learn about your horses (much of the information which was available in the dice-and-chart game is now hidden and needs to be discovered).  Planning plays an important part as well as understanding how your horses run over different distances and different goings.

 

NH Sport of Kings is available now for 15.
