Fables & Fiends: Hand of Fate
Description official descriptions
In the first part of this trilogy, Brandon, soon to be a king and only heir to the throne, determined to stop the evil jester Malcolm. Now, Kyrandia is disappearing. The high council found the cure for that - the anchor from the center of the world. When the young sorceress Zanthia comes to that anchor, she realizes it is not the answer. Her friend Marco is in possession of a giant hand, and it looks like that hand is responsible for the sabotage. Now, Zanthia must save Kyrandia before everything else vanishes without a trace.
Hand of Fate is the second installment in the Kyrandia series. The gameplay is similar to that of the previous game. Interaction is possible only with highlighted objects on the screen, and is reduced to a single cursor, without the distinction of separate commands. There are also no branching dialogues. Many of the puzzles involve picking up ingredients and concocting magic spells out of them.

The Legend of Kyrandia series consists of three installments and unlike many adventure games' sequels they are connected mostly by the Kyrandia land and the life of its inhabitants. The main antagonist, Malcolm, who was defeated in the first part, does not make any substantial appearance in Hand of Fate. The second installment is a sort of a side-track story in which player impersonates into mystic woman Zanthia whose main task is to figure out what is happening with Kyrandia. Malcolm (or rather his stone statue) appears only in the end sequence suggesting that the third installment was on its way.
- After Zanthia meets the Hand on the rainbow bridge, the costume she changes into is the same one worn by Sylvester Stallone in Rambo.
- It has been suggested over on Wikipedia that the game's unusual title may well be a reference to the notorious cult movie (much-beloved of MST3K) Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966).
The game was also released on CD-ROM. This version has full speech throughout the game, although the game is similar to the earlier disk release.
CD version of "Hand of Fate" is one of the first names that was fully translated into Polish including voice acting. The version of the game was distributed by IPS Computer Group and was reviewed in Secret Service 18 (November 1994).
