GET PAST THE GORILLA
ENTER the domain of the two kings who rule Twin Valley Kingdom. Explore the forests, the mountain paths and the caverns of the land where eternal life is possible.
You will meet other creatures which may have objects, such as broadswords, which you need. Those monsters are a motley crew and include rolls and gorillas. They have a nasty habit of throwing things at you and do not behave as intelligently as Bug-Byte claims.
The location pictures are colourful and drawn at a speed which beats that of The Hobbit graphics.
There are 180 locations of which 150 have corresponding screen pictures. Bug-Byte claims that it has crammed more locations and pictures into the Spectrum than any other company. That is a matter of opinion.
Another attraction is the addition of speech if you have a Currah Microspeech unit.
The game is excellent value for money. The only criticism is that little seems to happen until you have been playing it for some time and have found some of the objects which you need. That is all part of the simulation and dedicated adventure players should not be put off.
