It's easy to see why "Odieus" is a good choice for experiments in programming. [...] For avid players looking for a new challenge, though, there's little about "Odieus" that's attention-getting. The story is thin, character development is nil, and the puzzles aren't terribly intriguing. In general, magic and sorcery themes leave me cold. But even if you are an fan of "Enchanter"-type games, be forewarned that the sorcery is just for atmosphere and there aren't any scrolls to learn or spells to cast.

Surprisingly, the older AGT version plays better than the newer Inform one, as the Inform version is a bit buggy. I saw a review of Odieus in another magazine which stated that the author couldn't even finish the Inform version due to a difficulty in cooling down the hot springs, which was accomplished easily in the AGT version. [...] In any case, the game is not bad, and makes a nice little diversion. It shouldn't take more than a half hour to solve it.
