Yep. It was like that when I watched some reruns of the Krypton Factor on one of the Freeview channels (Dave?) a few months ago. Hilarious hairstyles though!

Too right I do, flippin' brilliant - Richard O'Brien was the whole reason … Too right I do, flippin' brilliant - Richard O'Brien was the whole reason for watching the crystal maze!:thumbsup:



I remember some other guy hosted it after Richard O'Brien left and he was terrible!

Yeah, I loved these shoes. I had the 'Knightmare' books and everything!

On a seperate note, there used to be a Crystal Maze PC game. Anyone know where I can get it? Relive my youth etc lol

Crystal Maze was brilliant with Richard O'Brien...guy who took over was rubbish! It was better before they changed it round and had the ship bit...I always preferred the orig version with the Aztec and the future places

one of my all time favs though...slightly different obvo...CATCHPHRASE with TV's own ROY WALKER! Loved it!

"SAY WHAT YOU SEE"



Knightmare always annoyed me though...boring....much in the same way I hated Blue Peter with a passion...

never watched Krypton Factor

yeah cyrstal maze was good, you'll have to refresh my memory on kightmare though?

You can download the whole of series one of the crystal maze

Crystal Maze and Knightmare were brilliant. People going around doing challenges with lots of different settings was a great idea. I agree, why aren't programs like this made anymore.
Ed tudor-pole was an annoying monster, he over-acted and he obviously was over paid!! I have seen Knightmare since on Challenge (I think), it was on early one morning. It brought back memories.
Even the Krypton Factor was fab, wish I was on one of those programs, I'd be great :-) xx

cant remember knightmare, but crystal maze i watched.. if we watch repeats now it really winds my bf up, but he loves it.

wicked thank you. Without sounding dunce, how can I play it with my OS?

You have to instal and run Dosbox, it emulates a PC running under Dos.

TBH I haven't used it for about 5 years, so I can't remember how to set it up. Links to Dosbox and tutorials below

I think you need ScummVM.

If its the same Crystal Maze game i downloaded a few years ago its rubbish :giggle:

Occasionally see Crystal Maze on Challenge TV and it's still as good, it winds me up a bit more now though cos most of the contestants are rubbish!
