The Curse Of Rabenstein
« on: 17:57, 09 April 21 »
Graphic text adventure from 2020.
In this video I play the game for about 10 minutes using the solution from CPCPOWER supplied by Kukulcan .
A good adventure with some gorgeous graphics, it is well worth your time to work thru.
My only criticism is that it is a little too easy, having the option to wander off the beaten track and fall to your death down a well or drown in a swamp would be "educational".

Lovely static imagery in the game.


The font makes my eyes hurt for some reason...

Yea the screens are beautiful, don't have any problem with the font.


In fact the screens were created by this artist:

Pretty good, addictive text adventure, although very short and VERY easy. It was ported to every computer under the sun, but I think the CPC version looks better even than the Amiga version.

Thank you for the video.

Indeed that was a gorgeous and very nice adventure; I agree with @Sykobee (Briggsy) - the font is very hard to read for me due to the monospacing and the distance between the characters. It's kind like very wide steps that force you to do very large steps :D

HAHA - true :-) when I read the text, it sounds in my mind like when my son learned reading. It's just not fluent. Really weird that a few empty pixels can have such an impact.
