That guess makes me suspicious that you know which game this is, Crimson Wizard :D

No, that was a blind guess :). I still don't know which game this is.

I'm only (slightly) familiar with the Spectrum version which obviously looks a little... different! - but from what's just been said I'd have to guess at The Hobbit?

It looks like an Amiga game I had. It involved a party and a mountain to climb. It had verbs, inventory, spells...
Can't remember the name.

Hahaha...no Bible Adventures, and no Hobbit.
Miguel might have it, considering it has everything he just said. If only he could remember the name!

Well, it looks like one of them "Forgotten Realms" games, or game using similar engine UI.

E: by "UI" I mean the picture shape and size.

In that case... Heroes of the Lance?

No to both guesses, and I don't believe this game had anything to do with any Forgotten Realms engine, UI or setting.

Hehehehe! Nice one selmiak. Nice one.

Babar, I recognize the picture and I'm pretty sure it is the same game but I even went through a full Amiga Games List and I can't find it...

B.A.T. - One of my regrets is that I've never actually played that game - it looked pretty amazing at the time!!


Okay this one is going to be dead easy to anyone who's ever played or seen it, but the game itself (16-bit era) is perhaps a little on th obscure side.  It was a great game though (at least I thought so!).
