You have just left the town of Greenwych and you have hitched a ride on a haywain. The driver tells you that you might have luck finding gainful employment in the village of Hengemire.

Little do you know that what you hear in this village will send you on a quest to find a lost magical weapon and change your life for ever....

      The Axe of Kolt, Mon 21st Mar 2016
    By Denk - See all my reviews

    The Axe of Kolt is what text adventures is all about. Set in a standard fantasy setting with wizards, dwarfs, witches etc., the game is huge but divided into four parts so that it never become unmanageable. The game is tough though. Luckily there is a VOCAB command for each part, inspiring the player when stuck with a list of relevant verbs. And if everything fails the player can send an e-mail to the author, which was needed some times.

    Highly recommended.

      A game well worth playing, Mon 14th Dec 2015
    By P/o Prune - See all my reviews

    The game is well written and Lazzah has managed to create a great atmosphere. It's a big (huge) game so you'll need patience and a lot of time which could be seen as a drawback in these busy days of time. The puzzles are fair but demands that you think a little :-) This is not a game you finish while sipping your afternoon tea.

    This is a review section and should not turn into a discussion forum but I feel in all fairness to Lazzah and his game I need to comment on BloetranTheGood review:

    Regarding the colour I can only assume that he has played the online version. I downloaded the Blorb and there the options page clearly states that the game should be played "Cyan on Black"

    (Not yet ready for a full review) A very complex game which needs a great deal of thought.
