ake three heroes, add several dwarves, one evil queen and a dash of epic quest and you have got a blockbusting D&D movie, not to mention a potential game licence. I could tell you the whole story but I’d probably get done under some copyright law, so I will take the relevant stages.
DOSASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
WILLOW ist mit Sicherheit nicht das schlechteste Game. Die Tatsache, daß die Erwartungen aufgrund des aktuellen Kinostreifens natürlich sehr hoch sind, kommt dem Produkt von MINDSCAPE nicht gerade zugute. Schlechtes Scrolling und ein sehr nerviger Sound beeinflussen die negative Meinung des Users zusätzlich. Die Grafik an sich ist zwar nicht außergewöhnlich, aber dennoch relativ vertretbar. Nur an Action fehlt‘s ein bissl, so daß meine Motivation nach einiger Zeit endgültig auf dem Nullpunkt angelangt war. Das absolute Ende der Geschichte bereitete uns freundlicherweise unser PC selbst. denn beim Versuch, das Programm auf Festplatte zu speichern, zerstörte er schnell und gründlich den Inhalt unserer Diskette.
AmigaComputer and Video Games (CVG)
The programmers have tried to recreate the key scenes from the film with little success. There is such a dependence on luck on every part of the game (even the swordfight!) that it just isn't enjoyable to play. The practise option seems like a good idea, but because all the mazes and spells don't change until you reset the whole game, you can find the routes through the dungeons and the ice caverns (after many fruitless and tedious attempts) and then romp through them in quest mode and make the whole thing seem pointless.
DOSACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Average graphics, juddery scrolling and stilted animation complement and compound the lame gameplay, while constant disk accessing finally kills any remaining urge to continue. Willow does have one saving grace, though: it plays a nice soundtrack at the beginning.
Atari STThe Games Machine (UK)
The ST sprites are badly coloured, drawn and animated, backdrops are plain and the digitised pictures have random red and blue pixels spread over them. Willow simply isn't worth the bother.
AmigaThe Games Machine (UK)
The Amiga game is depressingly similar to the ST's. The loading time is no faster and, other than the clearer digitised pictures, graphics are equally poor, and the music is a grating single-channel tune.
As Willow, hero of the game and the movie, you've got to make it through several sections to rescue a baby from the powers of a wicked queen.
