This adventure is very enjoyable to play, the illustrations are well done and the range of possible situations makes it absorbing. It is not however easy to play. and i must confess I have still to board the Golden Dragon and begin the quest proper. Thoroughly recommended for all adventure players.
ZX SpectrumCrash! (Mar, 1985)
Overall the game brings an endearing story to life both colourfully, though the entertaining graphics and theme, and in a form which is accessible to everyone as the problems it presents are not difficult.

Based on the book by Terry Jones, Erik the Viking, although published by Mosaic, has been programmed by Level 9. The adventure does not simply rehash the original but uses extracts from it to provide background and clues for a new saga.

As usual in a Level 9 adventure there are almost too many clues to be found, and locations to visits although the vocabulary appears to be more restricted than usual.

This is a nice little game in the mould of the Hobbit. The graphics consist of static scenes. These are pleasant enough for all that, although the program is a bit slow to draw them on the screen. Still, worthwhile enough and will probably encourage people to buy the book (which is probably the whole point)
