    Uns fehlen die Worte - Simon nicht!

    Simon the Sorcerer ab sofort auf CD ROM. Komplett mit deutscher Sprachausgabe und deutschen Bildschirmtext.

    "Die Übersetzung übertrifft das Original noch, da man sich eine gewisse Eigenständigkeit (Dialekte, typisch deutsche Kalauer) bewahrt hat, die manch andere Konvertierung vermissen läßt."
    "Die coolen Sprüche und schlagfertigen Antworten erreichen somit spielend Al-Bundy-Klasse."

    "Die hervorragende deutsche Sprachausgabe von SIMON THE SORCERER setzt neue Maßstäbe."
    POWERPLAY

    Demnächst auf Ihrem Computer - Sordid schlägt zurück. Freuen Sie sich jetzt schon auf Simon 2.

    Find a well

    Cast a spell

    Make a mistake

    Go to #*%!!


    Wherever you go, expect the unexpected. Because Simon is no ordinary sorcerer. He's an adolescent with an attitude, who accidentally stumbles upon a magical dimension on the very verge of collapse.

    As fate would have it, only Simon can save it from a tyranny of evil. Armed with a sharp wit and a tongue to match, our reluctant hero sets forth on his quest. In a wacked-out world filled with beer-swilling trolls, a schizophrenic two-headed clerk, swamplings, werefrogs and more, he must acquire the knowledge of a sorcerer and defeat the evil wizard Sordid.

    Discover a wondrously animated world. Unravel the mysteries of a puzzling plot. And beware that your biggest mistake would be missing all the fun of... Simon The Sorcerer!

From back of box:
    Join Simon, the hippest sorcerer around, as he is magically transported into an enchanting new dimension of bizarre interactive animation. Simon is not your ordinary sorcerer - he's an adolescent with an attitude, involuntarily and perhaps regrettably entrusted with a mystical quest to save Calypso from the evil wizard Sordid.

    Explore the Unknown! Simon takes you on an unpredictable journey through seemingly endless animated scenes filled with mystery, magic and amusement! Explore the realms of Simon's new fantasy world and uncover strange clues that lead you to the revelation of a puzzling plot.

    Discover the Unexpected! Acquire the knowledge of a sorcerer by unraveling the mysteries of Simon's questionable quest. Discover a strange world filled with beer-swilling trolls, a two-headed schizophrenic store clerk, swamplings, werefrogs and more!

    Speak the Unutterable! Armed with a sharp wit and a tongue to match, our reluctant hero engages in conversations that make most red in the face! Join Simon, the bad boy of sorcery, as adolescent vitality and juvenile curiosity inspire him to speak his mind and get you into some very interesting situations.

    FIND A WELL, CAST A SPELL, MAKE A MISTAKE, GO TO #*%!!

Unknown Source:
    What had begun as a straightforward quest to banish the Shapeshifter Witch and free the good wizard Calypso has become hideously strange. Only this morning I was eaten by an amphibian whose table manners were quite apalling.

    As if that wasn't a sufficiently inconvenient start to the day, within minutes I was leered at by a rock which refused flatly to say a word. At my wit's end i consulted with a wise owl. In place of a clue he fed me a red herring. It was delicious but landed me in a pickle. Rather than completing my noble quest I found myself settling an industrial dispute between a despotic Troll and a herd of militant goats.

    My intuition began to tell me that there might be more to this magic forest than meets the eye. Later, I visited the fiery pit of Rondor (open weekdays and bank holidays 10-6) and considered it truly one of the finest of the thousands of sights man or Swampling could ever behold in this queer land. Sightseeing over, I am determined that tomorrow nothing shall distract me from ending my quest and fulfilling my sacred destiny (weather permitting).
