Summary

Silly hat, great game

The Good

Almost everything, that fairy-tale parody present through all the game its real charming, the humour in that game is also real good, with good made characters and great dialogue lines. The puzzles are very well thought as maybe you will spend some time with some of them. I really like the backgrounds too, the forest, the snowy mountains, and so on... Also if you are a Tolkien reader you may find funny some of the references in the game (the ring,The Fiery Pits of Rondor,and some more...) A real cool game, a classic, a must-have.

The Bad

Maybe there are too much similarities to Monkey Island and the ending was really short (i think it was because it was originally released in disks and there wasn't enough space) anyway, that's nothing really annoying.

The Bottom Line

If you like old style adventure games you really must try Simon the Sorcerer 1, it's really worth of it.
