Hang on a minute... Is that a Polish game called "Książę i Tchórz" (The Prince and the Coward)? In some other countries I think it was called  Gallador or sth like that?

Yep, that's it.  It came to GOG recently, and I fell in love with it.   :grin:

Your turn.

I think an actual fantasy writer was hired to write the story for it. Do you find it hard? My brother had a big box edition when it came out. I remember giving it a go at least twice and getting stuck pretty early on : )

I'll try to post sth soon.

It was hard, but really enjoyable.  And it had some hilarious moments in it.   :cheesy:
I wrote a Walkthrough for it, so if you want the link, just let me know.   :smiley:

Oh nice, I'd be interested in that walkthrough Frodo! I purchased it recently due to it receiving an English translation, and the fact that it reminded me of Discworld at first glance. I'm looking forward to playing it but was worried I would end up getting frustrated if I got stuck, so your walkthrough will be greatly appreciated!

Here ya go    :grin:

You're in for a treat - it's such a great game.  Really love the Grave Digger's animations at the start, when he sticks his tongue out.    :cheesy:

I hadn't heard of it, before it arrived on GOG.  But when I read about it, I'm so glad it got an English translation.

Thanks Frodo. I might use it as well.

Here we go:



As a kid, I suffered nightmares because of that game. It's not a horror, though ;)

No, the game's universe isn't really tech oriented. It has more of an adventure/Indiana Jones' vibe imo.

No, but it's a very popular franchise.

Something to do with Atlantis? (Given the big non-existent continent to the west of Australia)

Or is that "Libraria" or something, considering the big scales on it?

Ah! This is how Hacker looked like, apparently:

Perhaps it's a DuckTales game, then?

Is it some game called ‘Maiden Voyage of the Eagle’ or something like that? I remember the ship being named ‘The Eagle’.

Lol, I didn't even notice it, until you pointed it out. I am not sure how this place was called in the game, but it definitely was the last stop, where the main character and his nemesis would check who collected more gold.

Yup, it's a DuckTales game. The full title is DuckTales: The Quest for Gold. And I wasn't kidding. The levels with the mummy jumping out on you were really close to giving me a heart attack.

Over to you, heltenjon :)

I was thinking Dragonsphere at first, but then I noticed these lions in the corners. Are they the Scottish lion rampart?

Looks kind of like Maddog Williams, but I know it’s not that.

Jeez, where were these games when I was a kid! I can tell from that screenshot I would have loved that!  :=
