Baf's Guide


A treasure hunt set in the mysterious crypts below an old church. The vicar, if asked, will provide a brief account of the building's history that explains some otherwise incongruous juxtapositions. Quite professional-looking, with some nice puzzles. Two mazes, one small and easily mapped on a grid, the other large and annoying. The parser is its weak point. This game could stand to be ported to a more sophisticated system.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

[...] I liked the story, but found it a bit straightforward and predictable. The main flaw of the game is a poor vocabulary and the existence of traps one cannot get out of (for example, if you fall into a grave without a ladder).

You will come across many problems to solve and treasures to collect, and one nice touch is that no-one need be killed (excepting yourself, occasionally.) Another nice touch I found appealing, you are not collecting all the various treasures for your own personal gain, but to restore to their rightful place - hard luck if you wanted to keep them!
