Black Lamp is an arcade game released in 1988 by Firebird Software. The game was released for Amiga, Atrai 8bit, Atari ST, C64 and ZX Spectrum.
Black Lamp has a story set in medieval times, specifically in the magical kingdom of Allegory, where dragons are prowling. The main character is a jester, in love with a princess. In order to get her father's permission to marry, he decides to get the Black Lamp, which was a protection against monsters. In the game, we play the role of a jester whose goal is to reach the place where the dragon has its hideout, and then take the enchanted Lamp from him. The game world is divided into areas: castle, defensive walls, forest, village and mysterious catacombs. Our goal is to find nine lamps, each of a different color. Then we have to take them to one of the shelves in the labyrinth. An additional difficulty is that you can only lift one at a time. The lamps are placed randomly around the world. The last piece, the Black Lamp, is guarded by the dragon - you can get it only by finding it and killing it. After taking it to the cupboard, you go to the next stage, where two of the 9 lamps are black, so you have to kill 2 dragons this time. Each stage includes one more Black Lamp. The game world is a labyrinth, divided into chambers, and the jester is hindered in achieving his goal by various monsters, knights and witches.
