SummaryA gorgeous fable with mesmerizing music for your gaming pleasure!
The GoodThe graphics in this game are really wonderful as is evident from most of the earlier adventure games developed by Westwood studios. The voice acting is good and suits each character well (only in the CDROM version). The CD version is definitely worth having (if you can still find it) because of the poster that came in the box with it. The music in this game is brilliant, perhaps the best in any fantasy adventure game ever (IMHO). Thanks to the incredible genius of Mr. Frank Klepacki. The story is very interesting, typical of a mystical, fantasy adventure game. Best of all the game has memorable characters especially Malcolm, the evil jester.
The BadThe game has a few terrible and rather tedious puzzles like the maze in the caves, the gems puzzle (gems have to be placed in a specific order without any use of logic) is especially difficult, since the sequence to place the gems is random each time the game is played.
