  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"

  It's only oldschool fantasy but I like it., Tue 12th May 2020
By rovarsson - See all my reviews

This is cliché fantasy galore and it's great!
Step one: set expectations to sorcerers, dwarves, a magic axe and all that.
Step two: don your Hero-attire and rush in!
Step three: be stopped in your tracks by this or that puzzle that is cleverer than you thought, wander through a forest searching for poultry, witness a demonic sacrifice...

It's good fun and the Hero of the day should count his blessings that you're the one guiding him because there's a few hard and complex puzzles. (Heroes aren't all that bright in the noggin, you know).
It's also fantastically long. This is one to sink your teeth into. Clear an hour a day in your schedule for a month to play this. You might get to the end by then.

AoK does show its age: some non-interactive forest-locations all alike, lots of death, some learn by trial-and-death, timed sequences. I didn't mind any of that because: fun!

In the end, it's a great straightforward fantasy romp that had me tied to the screen for some weeks.

A Should-Play!
