Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


The first adventure of Sir Ramic Hobbs: knight, drunkard, and dimwit. Although Hobbs is contractually bound to rescue a pricess from an enormous gorilla, the goal of this game is simply to get home safely. Makes interesting use of the narrative voice: the text of the game is spoken by a disembodied wizard who accompanies and advises Hobbs. Full of insult jokes, names based on strained puns, and absurd and anachronistic objects (notably, an ancient Chinese steam locomotive). Somewhat linear, with several points where you can't go back to retrieve items left behind. Makes frequent use of the verb "USE". Hints are available in most rooms via the "help" command.

Corny, yes......but really a light, fun little game with no pretenses except to entertain the player and present some interesting puzzles.

There are over 60 locations, plenty of entertaining descriptive text, amusing responses and lots of well thought out puzzles. If you get stuck then Wizard Prang is always in the background with advice - just hit HELP - and BO may have something interesting to say on the subject. (I particularly liked his discourse on the mating habits of wire coathangers!) (Neil Shipman)

The author has crafted a highly enjoyable and memorable work, and constructed some ingenious puzzles which result in an addictive and entertaining game that will delight adventurers old and new. It has a wonderful atmosphere and variety of location settings. The author has not been too hard on the player, either, and has introduced objects, the uses of which are reasonably logical and not too obscure. (Phil Richmond)

Games with stupid player characters by murphy_slaw
I'm looking for games where the player character is significantly stupider and/or less observant than the average player - the kind of game where part of the challenge is making sense of the descriptions offered through the simplistic...

Split-up PC functionality by baf
In a normal game, there is a single fictional entity that is considered to be: - The protagonist: the character that the player is meant to identify with, and whose goals you are trying to achieve - The viewpoint character: the character...
