Der geneigte Adventure-Fan, der „The Hobbit“ bis zum heutigen Tag immer noch nicht kannte, wird an dieser Stelle schon gemerkt haben, daß dieses Spiel viele schlaflose Nächte garantiert, denn Probleme, die es zu lösen gilt gibt es in diesem Programm zur Genüge, aber die Vielzahl der Figuren, denen man begegnet, die zahlreichen Stationen, die man während der Schatzsuche durchläuft und nicht zuletzt auch die komplex verschachtelte Handlung geben „The Hobbit“ eine geradezu mystische Atmosphäre, in der das Adventuren viel Spaß macht. Da kann man nur noch sagen: Auf geht‘s, der Weg zum Schatz ist lang!

Sadly, this version is restricted by the BBC's mere 32K of memory, and unlike the Spectrum original has no graphics display, which seems a great pity. Still, those who like myself are used to text-only adventures will find that they enjoy the game anyway.

(Disc version) When the Hobbit was first released for the Sinclair Spectrum one of its selling points was its graphics. When it was squeezed into the BBC the graphics were lost due to the insufficient memory. This has been remedied with the arrival of the disc version for the BBC computer.

If you already have the tape based version of the game then I wouldn't bother rushing out to buy this one.
