If you like graphic adventure games with a challenge then I think you will like this.
Crash! (Nov, 1984)
This is the best thing I’ve seen in arcade/adventures with the mystic qualities of adventures and the graphics of arcade. Avalon is the best blend between the two yet. The 3D effect is excellent (though a little jerky, but who cares when it is this good)? Overall, there is a lot to do in the game which means that interest will be held. I would personally recommend that a map be drawn to aid progress as I soon became lost without one. I think Hewson have produced a likely adventure cult game.

Hewson Consultants claims the game will do for computers what the Jazz Singer did for movies. A ridiculous suggestion which should not however detract from a product that introduces a new style and sophistication in 3D graphics. If you are into arcade games then you will enjoy moving around and killing the monsters in the maze. If, on the other hand, you like adventures you will be fascinated by the puzzles.

Avalon does indeed take the player on the adventure of a lifetime, but does fall a little short of placing the player in the shoes of Indiana Jones as the box copy might suggest.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Nov, 1984)
I'm not sure about Hewson's claim that Avalon will appeal to out and out Adventurers as well as arcade game gans - but the but the game is fun to play, pretty to loo at and challenging to play, pretty to look at and challenging too.

Avalon scores over its cousin, Ultimate's Atic Atac, in terms of size and complexity, but you'll need eleven fingers and a lot of patience if you 're going to get the most from it.

Avalon es un juego de reciente aparición en Inglaterra, que viene a poner una de las primeras piedras en lo que empieza a ser una nueva forma de programación.
