Game Review

Torin's Passage is a point-and-click adventure designed by Al Lowe (the creator of Leisure Suit Larry series). It was published by Sierra On-Line in 1995 for PC and Mac.

Unlike the Larry series, Torin's Passage is meant to be played and enjoyed by people of all age groups. The game is named after the protagonist character Torin. It follows his exploits on his home planet of Strata which he shares with his family. A purple dog and cat-like creature named Boogle is another important character in the game.

A sorceress named Lycentia is the antagonist of the game, who imprisons Torin’s parents by casting a magic spell. Hence, the player of the game has to guide Torin into removing the spell and finding the sorceress for more revelations. During this, players are also given the option of switching to Boogle. Since Boogle can transform itself into various objects, it essentially helps players in solving a number of puzzles which they encounter during game-play.

Many popular and world-famous characters make cameo appearances in the game. Some of them include Darth Vader, Yoda from Star Wars franchise and Taylor from the Planet of the Apes. Many fans of Al Lowe were initially surprised when Torin’s Passage was released as the designer was relatively known for making adult-themed games. However, it was well received by both fans and critics and praised for its whimsical fantasy theme and story-line.

    We are happy you liked this release. The original game was released for MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95 and Macintosh. There is no Amiga version.. in 1995 the Amiga was almost dead :(

    I believe it is PC and Mac only. I love this game though. My game crashed on the final world when I was a kid. Playing through it again with both patches applied!

    Not sure how I missed this one. Thought I had played everything Sierra ever released in the adventure genre through the nineties at least. Was this released on both Amiga and PC? Graphics look real nice and it will be a treat to play a classic adventure I've never experienced. Thanks to everyone involved .
