  Episode 8 does not disappoint, Sat 21st Aug 2021
By Denk - See all my reviews

I just saw that there were no reviews for this brilliant game, so I decided to write one.

First I must say that I beta-tested this game.

This game is very much in the style of the seven preceding episodes by the same author, starting with episode 1: The Axe of Kolt. Like all the games in this series, the game has a VOCAB command. This was not uncommon in homegrown adventures in the UK in the 80s and early 90s but it was in contrast to American games, such as those by Infocom. Thus it wasn't a problem to "guess-the-verb" as long as you were aware of that feature. However, in this game and others by Larry Horsfield, the VOCAB command usually has this 'disclaimer' after listing a lot of useful verbs: "There might be a few more, but you will have to work those out for yourself!"

I suppose some words were omitted from VOCAB so that the game does not reveal any puzzles. As I have played many of Larry Horsfield's games, I was able to figure those out. If you haven't played his games before or PAW games from around 1990, it will take a little getting used to. I recommend you start with the first in the series and ask for help when needed. When you get the hang of it, you can enjoy the following games even more.

But back to this game. The game starts out underneath Castle Coris where you (Alaric) must investigate a mysterious tunnel. I can't say much without spoiling something, but it is in the usual style with original puzzles and original places in addition to the usual "puzzle" of finding relevant objects by examining, searching, looking under etc.

If you like the previous episodes, this game does not disappoint.
