Ok, guys, here it is: Heavy on the Magick by Gargoyle, a "company" that consisted of technically two people only, which makes it more of a duo kinda, and who did a really great job of presenting us with such a fabulous and mind-busting adventure game! Thumbs up, fellas, still today!

Looks like a cool game. Considering the graphics the character sprites are really great (especially the hero). And

Nice Hex Editing by the way! Good to know that this ancient art of cheating hasn't been forgotten. ;)

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

Yes, for Spectrum it was actually one of the best games ever made, owing to both graphics and the plot. By the way, Gargoyle got immediately successful with their first adventure game - Tir Na Nog, where they employed this very catchy graphic solution, mainly featuring a smoothly striding man. They used it in two more games, namely Dun Da Rach and Marsport. What i still don't get is how the same graphics was used in a non-Gargoyle game - Legend of the Amazon Women, and i could find no information whatsoever related to this subject. Oh well, must've been plain theft :)

Haha.. well, mind you, one of those bags is poisoned, hence the mysterious response ;)
The funny thing about this guy is that his "hints" is that you realize how important and descriptive they are after you actually screw up or somehow guess the stuff yourself, and then you go "Aha!.. so THAT'S what he meant..." :)

Anyway, i've requested a little change of the review, which will contain additional exclusive info that no other people have ever mentioned anywhere, for the sole reason that it's not even a legit part of the game, so stay tuned ;)
