    Post 2 Broken retro memories im trying to trace.

    Ive used the search function and tried relevant posts but none relate to either of my questions. Ive failed on a few google trys until i ended up here

    1/. 80-90's Children's series. Possibley australian. A Boy and a girl have a coloured stone each (red and blue), They need to save the world i think at a particluar point in time (eclipse?) by using the stones. What i remember to be an Undertaker and some people that melt into giant blobs and travel into the river via tunnels..

    ahh good times. i noticed most of the forgotten classics here are traumatising horrors

    2/. 70-80's Childrens Gameshow. Precursor to Knightmare i guess. I just remember a floating grid and the kids took turns moving along the grid board, while a man in a suit (Knight?) took his turn after to intercept them. This was probably the final 'level' im not sure if it was the basis for the whole show or not.

    Thanks for any replies and answers, i'm a great lover of the 80's and retain many fond memories growing up. maybe i can return the favours oneday.

    first one
    Shown as part of The Third Eye (compilation series)


    "Under the Mountain" is the name, and was a show in its own right.

    The second I think is "Incredible Games"

    They have re-made the series of 'Under the Mountain into a movie. Sam Neil is in a main role too. Looks cool here is a trailer:

    Thumbs up Re: 2 Broken retro memories im trying to trace.

    Awesome work guys, definately 'under the mountain', but I'm not 100% on the gameshow, its definately something i remember watching though. Ill have to dig around the greycells a bit more and google some. maybe im mixing them up.

    The show im thinking of was more Tron-esque and im sure it was aired in the 80's.
    If you can think of anything let me know, ill reply if i find anything myself and hopefully help others too

    okay quick tour before bed, i came across this 'The Adventure Game' could be a winner.



    I found another gameshow too "Starstrider" but i cant find any images or videos to compare, just a text description.

    I did Huggie thanks for the help!
    I guess in my subconscious i was mixing up memories. I wrote about the 'Dark Knight' game for some reason. but what i was really thinking of was 'The Adventure game' and the 'Vortex'.

    I guess its just age settling in.

    No one will ever believe me but my first thought was the adventure game but with Incredible games having the "dark knight" game I went with that one. Doh!!
