This is the best bargain currently available for adventurers.

Since the games were originally written, Level 9 have considerably enhanced their adventure system, and are now able to cram in more text, as well as graphics, combined with a more complex parser.
Wer zuvor noch keine Adventures gespielt hat, der sollte sich diese Programmpaket leisten, denn so ein gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis findet man so schnell nicht wieder. Adventure-Freaks würden solche Programme nicht spielen, da diese keinen besonders hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad aufweisen.
Die drei Adventures sind insgesamt ganz nett, aber alles in allem nur Durchschnitt. Ich möchte sie aber jedem Adventure-Unerfahrenen ans Herz legen. Sie sind für mich das ideale Einstiegspaket. Man bekommt einen schönen Einblick in die Welt der Adventures und gewöhnt sich auch ans Lesen einer Beschreibung, denn das dazugehörige Buch - leider im unvermeidlichen Englisch - gibt einige versteckte Hinweise.

Although the Jewels of Darkness is a compilation of old games it is still a must for an adventurers who are missing one or more of these classics. The plots are timeless and the games graphics and parser are state of the art, as for the adventures themselves, they'll still challenge the best.
