November 2020 - Simon the Sorcerer
« on: November 01, 2020, 09:25:47 am »
AGA Game of the Month for November, 2020, is Simon the Sorcerer!

Once upon a time It all started on the day of Simon's 12th birthday. He was having a party, not a modern rave party that 12 year olds have these days, but a quiet English affair with jelly and ice-cream, pin-the-tail on
grandma and a magician called Marvelo. He specialised in pulling rabbits out of hats and making seemingly endless quantities of brightly coloured handkerchiefs appear from his mouth.

Simon took great pleasure in pointing out how these tricks were done to his awe-struck friends and eventually had to be physically restrained by his father to prevent Marvelo the Magician becoming Marvelo the Murderer.

When 'blowing-out-the-candles' time came, Simon wished for a Gameboy from his grandparents and for his older brother to fall down something deep and preferably spiky. He was surprised when later the doorbell rang
and upon opening the door, he discovered a small scruffy looking dog wrapped up in shiny paper. After unsuccessfully trying to install his friends Tetris cart, he was persuaded that it was not a new Gameboy after all.

The dog (he called it Chippy) had a strange book in it's mo uth that no-one could read. His parents hadn't the heart to tell the young boy the dog wasn't for him and that they had no idea from where or whom it came. It was
after all the target for the boyish sadism found in all youngsters. The family adopted the dog and the book was dumped in the loft and forgotten…

Until now …

Well I made it past the troll. Quite a fluke but simple once you get it.

It's a humorous game with loads of puns. I like the small things like the main character pulling out his walkman (remember those things?) and grooves along to the tunes while waiting for you to do something.

Wish I had time to set this up on my Amiga and play for real.  It immediately reminded me of the fun I had with the Monkey Island series.  I will definitely be coming back to this in the future.
Thanks for the great review quantum8!

As this was a non-scoring game, quantum8 takes victory with his excellent short review!
