Game Review

Discworld is a point-and-click adventure game 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!’ book, number 8 of the series. The main character is voiced by comedian Eric Idle, from Monty Python.

You play as a wizard named 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 slightly. 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 forced to do the bidding of the ‘Brotherhood’. Rincewind decides to help her out and goes into a lot of trouble. 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. 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 bit of humor on the side.

Though catching flak for the difficulty of the puzzles (I guess critics don’t like a challenge), the game did reasonably well. It was praised for its graphics, sounds, and voice acting; and how they could 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.
