Knightmare is a totally awesome obscure game I fondly remember from my childhood. The whole premise is simple. You're a knight. You go into a castle. You go through the castle killing monsters and evil dudes. At the end of every level there's a "boss", like the totally evil witch above. Its awesome.

Knightmare is an example of the idea that you don't need a convoluted plot, or even any plot at all really, to make a badass game. All you need is a "concept". The starting screen just showed a spooky castle, at night, with bats flying around it, and lightning, and the word "KNIGHTMARE!" in scary letters. Thats all you need. As a kid, I thought "awesome! I'm totally gonna go inside that castle!".
