Game Review

Discworld is a point-and-click adventure game that was developed by Teeny Weeny Games and Perfect 10 Productions; and was published by Psygnosis in 1995.

The game is set in Terry Pratchett’s created Discworld and takes from many of the series’ novels. It is most closely based on the ‘Guards! Guard!’ novel, number 8 of the series. The main character is voiced by comedian Eric Idle, from Monty Python.

You play as a wizard by the name of Rincewind who is summoned by the archchancellor of the University to deal with a little dragon problem (a departure from the novel). Rincewind does as he is told, at first. Once Rincewind finds out that the dragon’s lair is full of untold riches, his plans change a little. He heads to the dragon’s lair to plunder it, but is surprisingly asked for help by the dragon. She tells him she is being held captive and being forced to do the bidding of the ‘Brotherhood’. Rincewind decides to help her out and goes to a lot of trouble to do so. After finishing the tasks to free the Dragon, he finds out that she’s going to kill the members of the Brotherhood and then she’s coming for him. No good deed goes unpunished, as they say. In order to stop this Rincewind must transform himself into a legendary hero. In true adventure fashion, Rincewind must collect items, talk to the locals, and solve puzzles, with a little humor on the side.

Though catching flak for the difficulty of the puzzles (I guess critics don’t like a challenge), the game did fairly well. It was praised for its graphics, sounds and voice acting; and the way in which they were able to bring Terry Pratchett’s world to life. This game is a good title for anyone who loves the Discworld series and adventure gamers who enjoy a little humor.
