Gnome Ranger has improved on Knight Orc in the puzzle stake (more logical and enjoyable), the atmosphere (more enjoyable and less confusing), the plot (more comprehensible), and the characters (more interesting). You can't ask for much more than that, except that perhaps Level 9's next game could give us more of the same. It would be good to see a slightly bigger game, in terms of location and puzzles, but for the time being this will do gnicely.

Since the C64 cassette version of Gnome Ranger has text only, disk owners should make a point of getting the game on disk, since it is exactly the same price as the cassette. The packaging, too, is new. A flexible plastic double-cassette case in black, with more durable hinges than previous models has been chosen to house the game, which will complete with a 48 page 12,000 word copy of The Gnettlefield Journal. Welcome back, Level 9!

There is not so much hacking and slaying, and the whole thing is gentler, with more ponderable problems. Some of the descriptive text, too, is superb. EXAMINE is a command that should be used whenever possible, for there are few things that do not have a lengthy, and often humorous description to be revealed! My favourite was that of the eagle, with a feast of alliterative F’s, ending with a bit about foul fluffy feathery bits under its tail! The rest of the text has its funny side too, for with all these GNs around (Gnome, GNettlefield) all words beginning with an N in the text, are preceded with a G. Not only that, the input system accepts the G as an optional start to the words, when used by the player!

The first part of Gnome Ranger is meant to be a fairly easy introduction to the game and the adventure system, before things hot up later on, but I'm still finding my way round and slowly building up my score... and enjoying every minute of it. Speccy owners are lucky, as Gnome Ranger's a better game than Knight Orc, and gives you a chance to at last sample Level 9's new open-plan adventures. For 48K owners who've been deprived of The Pawn, it should be an essential purchase as it gives you the flavour of the size and scope of disk-based games.

On regrettera seulement la disposition trop classique de l'écran de jeu, moitié paysage, moitié dialogue, ainsi que les complexe descriptions (en anglais) des lieux traversés. Aucun bruitage, des graphismes digitalisés jolis bien que pas assez « piqués » peut-être... Une aventure qui semble finalement réservée aux anglophones passionnés du genre.

„Gnome Ranger“ erinnert mich sehr an „Knight Orc“. Die Idee mit der Gnomen-Dame ist nicht allzu weit von der Geschichte des Orks entfernt. Es ist schwer zu sagen, wo da der Nachfolger aufhört und wo der Abklatsch beginnt. Die digitalisierten Bilder sind seit Knight Orc auch nicht schöner geworden. Es wäre wohl besser, sich einen Grafiker zuzulegen. der die Motive zeichnet. Auch der Perser wurde nicht wesentlich verbessert. Trotzdem ist er durchaus zufriedenstellend und sticht einige andere aus, die auf dem Adventure-Sektor zu finden sind. Probleme hatte ich mit den Puzzles im Spiel. Sie sind nicht immer sehr logisch und überstrapazieren die Phantasie des Spielers. Wer aber schon an Knight Orc Spaß hatte, wird auch Ingrids Abenteuer reizvoll finden.
