Gog released this old Sierra classic updated for newer systems. This is not my typical in depth review as Syd's review here says it all. Review
The Gog version played well on Windows 7 and followed the old walk throughs found on the net faithfully. Presently at $5.95 you can hardly go wrong.
I found one glitch, well I will call it a glitch. Just before you enter the final scene a critical action would not complete.
Dreeb the witch's side kick is suppose to step off a ledge allowing you entry into her chamber.
No matter what I did the game refused to cooperate. Ultimately I replayed the prior chapter doing nothing differently and this time it worked. I suspect it must have been a glitch.
There are only twenty save slots and windows 7 makes you work to find saved games. Here is the path to locate them.
(C:\Documents and settings\user name\Local Settings\Virtual Store\ProgramFilesX-86\Gog. com\Torins Passage
Once you find the Torins Passage folder the saves are listed in numerical order in the following format. Torinsg.000
It was quite a hunt to find them as these files were buried deeper than normal for Win7.
I mean the Gog version of TLJ only had four layers to sift through before reaching the save folder. Happy hunting.
It is a great game and now that you can get it cheaply and ready to play on modern machines it becomes a can't miss.
I resisted going over the basics for this game as others have already done so. About all that needs being said is the gog version works well and be prepared in case you run into the glitch that bit me. Save often even if you only have twenty slots. If you manage to kill Torin at least he comes back at the beginning of the tricky spot. There are no quick reflex action scenes to cause frustration.It is all point and click with plenty of humorous one liners.
Something that came up in a Hints Forum thread I forgot to mention.
The game renders automatically in dosbox which is included in the game download. The opening scenes appear very small. About post card sized. It remains that way until the game gives you player control. Once that happens the game renders full size in the Dosbox window. Dosbox opens in a window. For those of you unfamiliar with Dosbox, don't panic. Pressing both the ALT and ENTER keys at the same time will toggle the program to full screen. Repeating the action will return it to windowed format.
Yes you have to put up with the post card but only until the game starts.
