With the exception of Lords of Time
, the games featured are later Level 9 productions that featured graphics in the original versions and - in the case of Price of Magik
- improved parsing and vocabularies as well. This means that if you already have copies of these games, it isn't going to be worth shelling out for the new compilation - although the graphics have been improved and the games polished up, they don't improve sufficiently on the originals to justify buying a second copy.
Time and Magik is a welcome addition to any adventurer's collection. The sheer quantity of quality text, locations, objects, characters and puzzles will keep you happily transported for many weeks to come.
Time and Magik is good, not all the components are particularly impressive, but the complete package makes a worthy addition to your collection - especially if you have not played the games before.
My old gran used to have a saying which went something like: "You can dress mutton to look like lamb, but it's still mutton". What, you may ask, has that to do with these games. Well, the three games that go to make up Time and Magik were all originally for 8 bit machines and have been spruced up for the ST. The sprucing includes the addition of pictures and enhanced command parser, but they are still essentially 8 bit games and don't make nearly full use of the power of the ST.
