Companions of Xanth
Dos but ran fine with a W98 shortcut
First person point and click
Two demons named Xanth and Earth devise a game in which two Mundanes are
pitted against each other. Winner take all - if the mundane of Xanth's
choosing wins - magic will continue on Xanth, if the mundane of Earth's
choosing wins - no more magic on Xanth. You are the champion mundane of
Xanth and Kim is the mundane champion of Earth - the only thing is neither
you, Kim nor your companions know what is at stake. You all just think it's
a game to get to the goblet.
Your first mission - choose a companion to guide you through the perils of
Xanth, where you'll meet the dreaded Loc Pic monster, the evil Com-pewter
and the bad tempered Fairy Nuff, along with assorted ogres, dragons, trolls
and of course the awful smelling censor-ship. You'll even meet a genuine
Fire man with his trusty "hot dog".
Simple point and click, inventory based game. You can talk to your companion
any time you want - sometimes you'll get a hint on what needs to be done,
sometimes not. The game is puny and so are the puzzles - as long as you
keep that in mind they are not all that difficult to solve.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game - it was humorous and one you can just play
without too much hair pulling. I highly recommend it if you can find it.
Oh, there is a maze - and a nasty one at that (at least for me but then most
of them are).
