Yes, Another Game with a Dragon!

by John Kean

Cave crawl/Satire
2000

About the Story

In this game, you play as a brawny adventurer heroically rescuing a fair maiden from a fire-breathing dragon. Oops, sorry, no, that was just a dream. You're actually an out-of-shape drunken lout. But then King Alfie proclaims that Princess Rosebud has been abducted by a dastardly dragon and that whoever rescues her will gain half the kingdom and her hand in marriage! Wow. Will you make the attempt to win the princess? Or will you go have another pint in the tavern? It's a tough choice.

SPAG

[...] YAGWAD is the funniest game I've played this year. From the rousing prologue (and responses to "score" and "fullscore" therein), to the delightful ascii art animation in the title, to the encyclopedia salesman (insert Monty Python clip), to the friendly teeth, the troll, the answering machine, the monks....well, I could go on all day. Suffice to say, YAGWAD kept me grinning ear to ear from beginning to end. The humor is dead on, comparable to Steve Meretzky's and often better.

Puzzles are not too hard and fun to solve. Recommended!

The writing in YAGWAD is technically excellent, and I didn't find a single bug in the code, either. Like I said, if Infocom was a British company, they might easily have produced this game. I mean that compliment as strongly as it sounds. Anybody who likes Infocom-style IF ought to give this game a try. Even those of you who shudder at the thought of Yet Another Game With A Dragon. (And you know who you are.)
