Hello dear internet viewer,
As you have surely heard since yesterday, unless you are a total hermit, Actor Robin Williams allegedly died from suicide. Because personally, I'm identifying myself a lot with the culture of 90 and Robin Williams is one of its most powerful emblems, I'll today present a game based on one of his films! It's an adventure game; Hook developed by Shadow Software, but distributed by Ocean Software Ltd. in 1992.
Yes, here, You play Peter Pan in its adult form hiding under an identity of adoption in which he forgot that he had once been. The abduction of his children by Captain James Hook will force him to make a jump over the timelines among his memories and his promises. You will encounter throughout this adventure game a few puzzles with lost children, whether the pirates whose terrifying villains Captain James Hook who has kidnapped your children is the head and various subtle elements that will without a doubt smile addicts adaptations of Peter Pan. A game that apart from some adaptation in the form of game-related items is very faithful to the film.
You surely have this question to the mouth, is this a good game? If you like adventure games typically years 90 like Monkey Island, King Quest, Space Quest, Leisure Suit Larry and more, you will surely love this game. Although level tech, It feels very well it is boor of the adventure games released in the mid- 90, the game as such is nevertheless very well presented and we sailed easily in history. So yes, It is a very good game, but not without its flaws!
Its flaws? Well, to start, sound level the game is only playable in Roland. In fact, on the box it's indicated Adlib and Roland, but the Adlib sound has never worked for this game (whether with sound cards at the time or in emulation), So we stuck to the music and sound effects are in Roland, which is unfortunately very jammedin, because this limits all at midi files. So no digitised effect as it is often kewl to have in this kind of game usually. And the other flaw, its saving system is ultra annoying to use, so that we are never sure if we've saved or not! And especially, no way to confirm whether it worked or not since there is no function LOAD. Yes, totally idiot being to able save will you can't load.
Brief, If you forget these two irritating flaws this game is a success and is worth to be played. This applies not only to fans of adventure games, but also for those who love the subtleties will surely find their bread!
