Now here’s an adventure game that got me frustrated within the first few minutes of play – maybe adventure games are not my genre. I would so easily get stumped on the job in hand and not be able to progress any further without having to scour through C&VG’s adventure section for hints and tips. I have since seen the WHOLE solution to the game and wonder how on earth the programmers would expect anyone to have worked out the entire solution?!
Thanks to David Craddock the game is complete and a solution is no longer required …
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: David did what most of us probably tried to do but got bored typing in all of the commands, he got hold of the solution and completed the game. Is it cheating? I suppose it is but I’m not holding it against him 🙂
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have woken up the bandit, you got ‘NORTH’ and make a dash for freedom. The final screen appears and the story comes to a close with you finally going to sleep.
COMMENTS: Being an adventure game, there really isn’t going to be much of an ending to see. It quickly completes the story and that’s it! I suppose there could have been an ending tune and some animation, but I think it all boils down to the programmer’s knowledge of coding.
FINAL SAY: Move along … there’s nothing to see here (“,)
G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
