Super Robin Hood is a Robin Hood-themed platform game published in November 1985 by Codemasters. Some ports of the game were titled Robin Hood: Legend Quest, for example on the Amiga and Commodore 64.
The Oliver twins developed the game for the Amstrad CPC when they were age 17; it and was their first game published by Codemasters. Codemasters offered the brothers £10,000 for the game, because the company expected to sell 100,000 copies with royalties of 10p per unit sold.
The twins worked on a single computer in a bedroom of their parents' house. Working in shifts, they coded for 18 to 23 hours per day; they took 30 minute breaks to allow the computer to cool. Sometimes, one brother coded on paper while the other used the computer.
The game was well-received by critics, and sold well. After Codemasters asked the brothers to produce another game, they developed Ghost Hunters, which was released in February 1986.
