SIMON THE SORCERER II: THE LION, THE WIZARD, THE WARDROBE
Harry Potter? Harry Houdini? David Copperfield? No, it's Simon The Sorcerer in his Second PC Adventure (ScummVM)

The game is very large, or at least appears to be and there is much to do on the quest to do er, something ( I should have paid more attention to the start but was making a bacon sandwich and as a result wasn’t really 100% focused Hey I was hungry and yes, the sandwich was nice, thanks for asking) including interacting with other characters using a number of preset responses and solving some puzzles in order to get to the end of the game.

The game should be a great addition to the adventure genre, it has an easy interface plays well and has interesting graphics. So far so good you may think? Well so did I until I started playing it properly. Transpires that the game makes one of the most heinous crimes known to man as a way of saying thanks for playing, just what you need to endear it to you

The lead character is a complete and utter cretin. He has a much likable charm as dead cat left by the side of the road for a few weeks and then some. This is the main protagonist of the game and within the first few minutes of play has managed to annoy the Granddaughter  with some awfully written flirting and belittled the Wizard who helped him from the wardrobe. It doesn’t get any better from there on in and a mere few minutes later Simon is slagging of some Morris Dancer’s for some well timed ‘hilarity’. Basically, Simon is horrible choice of character to carry a game and it spoils the experience.
