Return Of The Ring

Dragon 32

Published in Home Computing Weekly #79

If you like adventures of any sort then this must be for you. This adventure has its origins in The Ring Of Darkness and some of the ideas are similar. The tape contains four parts to my knowledge, each one taking up a large part of memory and all in machine code.

The game starts with the choice of role: human, dwarf, elf with accompanying attributes. You then allocate points for strength, charisma, intelligence and number of regenerations. This done, you load the main part of the program which places you on a decaying planet. Now you make discovery after discovery battling your way to different parts, always on the high resolution screen.

It's a fascinating world full of mutants, annoying beggars, droids and some very intelligent characters who accompany you to help, advise and keep up a conversation with you.

The graphics are fascinating and varied. I have no room to describe them, but suffice it to say that there is plenty there to last for weeks if not considerably longer.

It's a difficult adventure to solve but not to play and for this reason I do not recommend it for the faint-hearted. The other serious drawback is the time it takes to load different parts.
