This type of icon-driven adventure is improving all the time and Quest For the Time Bird is one of the best yet. If you are an adventurer whose fingers are weary of endless tapping or even if you normally stay away from adventuring Quest's interaction system and great graphics make it well worth a trip to your local software shop, even if only to marvel at the artwork.

Time Bird was written by the chaps who produced Passengers in the Wind so whilst playing Time Bird I waited, with baited breath, for the floor to collapse to reveal, yet another, empty Infogrames adventure. However, Time Bird is not that bad. In fact it's pretty good. The graphics are wonderful, whilst the appropriate sound effects, on the ST, are excellent.

Although the graphic and sound are of a high quality, the game play seemed to me to be very frustrating, with the game based on a trial and error approach that meant that it was only a matter of time before you beat it. I didn't find the game very user friendly, and for a beginner it's going to be hard and very annoying. Unless you really like this type of game, I'd give it a miss.

Ich muß sagen, daß ich die Gomicalben mit dem mürrischen Bragon und der niedlichen Pelissa in mein Herz geschlossen habe. Leider ist die Atmosphäre der Comics bei der Computer-Umsetzung verlorengegangen. Zugegeben, die Grafik ist wirklich toll und die Musik auch, aber das allein macht noch kein gutes Spiel. Denn spielerisch bietet “Quest tor the Time Bird“ unterstes Abenteuer-Niveau. Ab und an mal auf ein Menü klicken und eine vorgegebene Antwort aussuchen, ist einfach zuwenig, um mich länger an den Monitor zu fesseln. Ganz schön dreist, dafür knapp 90 Mark zu verlangen. Wenn man sich hier in nicht ganz so engen Abmessungen bewegen und mit richtigen Texteingaben arbeiten könnte, sähe das Ganze schon anders aus.
