Summary

A new flavor in the RPG stream. This is not just another RPG.

The Good

Surprisingly I recently played this game again (2001) and the graphics was not to shabby. Like the older games when you play again with the memory of today's graphics, it was a kinda let down. But UUkrul turned out to have very good graphics not far from today's kind.

Anyway, this is an interesting RPG. The creativity of the makers in making the puzzles and simple yet unique interface has to be commended. The new style of magic and gods are an interesting change, as well as the sanctuaries.

The Bad

The story line needed some spice. But the puzzles and funny-like fighting probably made-up for it. This game for basics was Superb. But it lacked variety in something RPG's usually have. Can't quite point the finger, but it's probably is around the story line.

The Bottom Line

A must for an RPG lover.
