Editorial Reviews

Your Sinclair

"It's an adventure where money comes in handy. There's free help available with every purchase at the pub, but food and beer cost one gold coin each, and where's a Balrog to get cash like that? Our old pal the troll on the bridge demands his gold coin too - and he wouldn't be fobbed off with the green-cheese sandwich I offered him either.

There are a few in-jokes along the lines of Shadows Of Mordor, Golden Eggcup and something called Nigel's Revenge, and as usual with Zenobi games the problems are all quite cleverly worked out. The Quill is well used too, with smart ways of getting round some if its shortcomings."
