What it says on the tin and more, September 14, 2023

This game was cute! I thought it was a pleasant story, fairly easy and intuitive, and it makes me want to take a crack at the Adventuron system since itís the first game I played using it. I love games with little spells to cast on things, and I liked that you got unique text for (as far as I can tell) every spell + item combination you try to do, which told more about the PC and their personality/ethics. The references I caught were fun, like with Indiana Jones and how witches sink in water. I almost never had to guess what verbs are allowed, only what verb to use at which moment - which was well signaled for most of the game.

(I'm not sure if this is for an old release since the author said they'd fix these, so I marked it as for an old version)

The two areas I got tripped up were (Spoiler - click to show)getting on and off the platforms/stones, and talking to the surprisingly nice sphinx. She said ďAre you ready to answer my question?Ē like five times while I futilely tried >Yes, >Answer Yes, >Say Yes, >Say Time Travel, and various other combinations in that vein. That was a little frustrating.

Note: this review is based on older version of the game.
