Description

A sequel to Simon the Sorcerer, this second game in the series gives us more mis-adventures from our teenaged sorcerer (of some sort). Thrown into another dimension by his own wardrobe, Simon starts the heroic mission (of some sort) to find -- another wardrobe that could get him back home. Equipped with his pointy sorcerer's hat (of some sort), he will also rescue the world (again) from the evil Sordid.

A point-and-click adventure in a style similar to the first Simon game, only technologically improved.

Trivia

Amiga version

The Amiga version, which wasn't released until several years later (and by a totally different company), didn't feature any background music at all. The reason was because the Amiga can't play MIDI music natively.

Title

The game's title was obviously inspired by the first book of C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia, entitled The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
