“Maniac Manison, Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Full Throttle, your boys took one hell of a beating.”
Or rather they didn’t. But there is at least a pretender to the throne isn’t there? Simon for it is he who is a Sorcerer has returned for a second game. this one with added wardrobes. [Cue Long intro]
Elf/Ogre.. playing with magic, yadda yadda yadda,'Enchanted Wardrobe', yadda yadda yadda, Simon steps into it and gets transported to a different world, rescued by Wizard and his Granddaughter yadda yadda yadda and there you have the introduction to this adventure game.
So here we are a stranger in a strange land, wearing some natty clothes and a pointy hat shaped like a cone, and the game begins, in a redbrick port town. You have to your left a shop where the wizard and granddaughter live the middle has a road to the Castle and to the right a map of the rest of the town, including a Town Square, Docks, Muc Swampy’s and a Tattoo Parlour, you know, the usual everyday type of thing?
Your game world is presented to you with a series of colourful and well defined icons that allow you to investigate, talk, use, pick up and so on. The rest of the screen is a cartoon diorama depiction of the world you are in with the eponymous Simon being able to be moved by click of the mouse button and interact with the realm he has found himself in.
