Game Review

The Abbey of Crime Extensum is the 2016 remake of the 1987 ZX Spectrum game "La abadía del crimen" by Paco Menéndez and Juan Delcán.

This free adventure was developed by a Spanish team of fans of the original game: coding was made by Manuel Pazos, and the graphics by Daniel Celemín. It was released in 2016 on the official website and Steam.

La Abadia del Crimen (or "abbey of crime") was a game inspired by Umberto Eco's novel and Jean-Jaques Annaud's film "The Name of the Rose". Unfortunately, the original makers never got the rights to use the novel's title, so they had to release the game with a different name. Despite this, the plot of the game, the characters, and the locations are exactly the ones of the movie.

The remake features gorgeous graphics and brilliant pixel art faithful to the style of the original ZX Spectrum game (maybe more the Amstrad CPC). You navigate through the beautiful isometric world controlling your characters, the monks William of Baskerville and his young novice Adso, trying to discover the murderer in a medieval Italian abbey.

If you like adventure, mystery, and medieval locations, not to mention the novel or movie, this is a freebie you cannot miss.

Below you can download the original Java version, packed for Windows. If you have a Mac or prefer the Steam version, you can get it here.

Game and manuals are available in English, Spanish, French, and Italian.
