Another character Larry's developed is that of Alaric Blackmoon - his first appearance was in Axe of Kolt. Axe is a four-part fantasy adventure full of derring-do, blood 'n' guts and spectacular and mysterious quests.

You begin the game as an out-of-work mercenary, but believe me you are soon hacking and slashing all over the place. The Xixon Lizardmen are on the rampage after being banished for 200 years, and they must be stopped. The plot boils down to this... the Lizardmen can only be vanquished if you can find the magical axe of King Kolt that was last used to defeat the Xixon, but was buried with Kolt on his death in a secret tomb. Yep, you guessed it, you don't know the tomb's location. There are more twists and turns in this game than a snake who's swallowed a corkscrew!

10/10
