I think you need to be something of a mind-reader to be good at adventure games. There you are, confronted with a sealed door and a blocked passageway, knowing that you have to type in the right words to obtain a way forward. How on earth are you supposed to discover what those words are?

I spent an evening trying out everything that might get me past the first location, but nothing worked. However, Anirog had fortunately supplied a demo showing what I would have discovered if my thoughts had happened to run along the right lines, so my lack of success need not prevent me from telling you that this game has some excellent action graphics.

The objective is to find the ingredients for an elixir which will cure a plague. You can choose to take the role of Duke the fighter or Oswich the witch, and you are accompanied on your journey by Silvester the cat. No doubt there are lots of problems to be solved along the way, if you can manage to reach them.
