THE LOST CRYSTAL has been more than two years in the making and supposed release dates have come and gone. However, the wait was worth it. This is one of the best text adventures I have ever seen.
My only criticism of the game is that the colours are sometimes a little garish. The puzzles are, on the whole, logical and typical of the Epic style of construction. The most important character in the game - besides yourself - is the Miller, who demands sympathy and affection. I adored his comments at various stages of the game and his muscular help is required on more than one occasion.
This is a rare adventure which has a lot to offer the beginner and expert. A whole new experience which must be savoured and an adventure which I wholeheartedly recommend.
