Kommen wir zur abschließenden Bewertung: WARLOCK‘s QUEST ist ein Programm, das zu keinem Zeitpunkt langweilig wird. Ein abwechslungsreiches Geschehen und eine Kulisse, in der unheimlich viel untergebracht worden ist und immer wieder neue Details entdeckt werden können, sorgen für eine langanhaltende Spielfreude. Schade, daß man die Spielfigur nicht etwas größer dargestellt und den Bildwechsel etwas fließender gemacht hat. Gestört hat es mich auch, daß ich, wenn die Energie aufgebraucht war, das Spiel immer wieder von vorn beginnen mußte. Doch dies sind Nachteile eines ansonsten wirklich guten Programms, die man angesichts seiner vielen Vorzüge leicht verschmerzen kann. Es gibt wenige Spiele, die auf Anhieb Spaß machen, die man aber auch noch nach einiger Zeit gern spielt. WARLOCK‘s QUEST ist eines davon.
ST Action (Jun, 1988)
I cannot recommend Warlock's Quest highly enough, it is terrific fun with amusing and horrific characterization, a constant flow of adversaries and fiendish twists which never fail to surprise and trick you. In short, Warlock's Quest is an essential purchase!
Whether Warlock's Quest has the depth to go along with its undoubted graphic charms is another matter, but generally this is an attractive release with numerous neat, if occasionally cruel touches - definitely one of the better Gallic UK releases.
Great (if small) graphics, and some atmospheric sound effects make this an enjoyable game. But it really doesn't do anything better, or radically different, than Cauldron did on the 8-bit machines a couple of years ago.
The One (Dec, 1988)
It's magic! the ST has been transformed into an Amstrad CPC... there's witchcraft afoot. the graphics do look remarkably Amstradish, but at least they're clear and uncluttered. [...] the drawbacks are more related to the manner of the game rather than its implementation - the idea dates back almost to the era in which it's set, so most people will have seen a couple of similar efforts in the past.
Although the perspective 3D is good, it often proves difficult to negotiate, making movement very frustrating. Musical accompaniment is non-existent and other sonic effects are minimal, the only sound being the plodding footsteps of the Warlock. The omission of extensive sound effects and limited gameplay make Warlock a rather disappointing release.
Atari ST User (May, 1988)
Better games - though, admittedly, in monochrome - have been around on the Spectrum for years, and most run far faster. Warlock hasn't been thought out properly, and not enough time was spent on the programming. The loading screen isn't too good either. Shame, really. I hope The Edge take more care with its next project.
