    hey, welcome! that’s awesome!

    what do you recommend as a starting ship for someone who can barely finish the first level?

    ooh yeah I never got bitten by the theme hospital bug and I feel like I missed out on an epidemic.

    Popolous is another I’ve never been able to ‘crack’.

    I’d also like to suggest Little Big Adventure or perhaps the sequel – although rnlf might veto it;)

    edit: oops looks like sorceress beat me to it: https://www.dosgameclub.com/forums/topic/little-big-adventure-1994/

    I started playing this again – apparently I played it a bit a few years ago according to steam. It’s a lot harder than I remember from the DOS days, perhaps I’m just older and slower?

    The cutscenes are hilarious as the cop guy looks exactly like George Lucas. George Lucas wants to make you race death rally for him! Do it or it’s the rock, kid. You better not mess up! Why hasn’t this movie been made? I’m just surprised you’re not racing Boba Fett and Han Solo.

    Anyway, back to the racing. I’m struggling to win races but also spending too much time upgrading vehicles I won’t really use.

    I don’t think I ever played this. Perhaps on amiga? Would be up for spending a month on it.

    this is another memory from my childhood where I didn’t really understand enough to play properly. Managed to beat the adult copy protection to make the curtains open all the way though 😀

    I’d be up for some Ultima! Played some of them, struggled to get others running, never finished any!

    infact the barbarian is probably the best starting class since he ignores terrain movement penalties

    I think it is, yes. I like the Knight. Stop insulting me. Anyway, surely the best class is whoever is strongest in the early game, e.g. (probably) not the warlock?

    only gripe I have is that the game can be quite cruel at times. e.g. throwing a super-fat hero at you just after your main hero killed some dragons or whatever.

    also they do tend to know when your castle is undefended, grr

    in reply to: Dollarone's let's play QfG! (spoilers) #672

    Alright! Let’s do this!

    I got a little hint about looking around in the bar from Tijn, and in doing so I found a little paper note. Ooh, secrets! I follow the instructions which leads me to find a key to the cave I just spent ages grinding my “open” spell for. Oh well. Atleast there’s a secret word to avoid being instakilled.

    So I return to said cave, traverse the dungeon, gets instakilled anyway, but re-load with so much anger that I manage to flame-dart the bastard to death before he can instakill me again. Wow, I pack some power now.

    I continue out of the cave, and easily pass the next challenge (seriously, again?).

    Then there’s a weird part with different kind of challenges – first it’s a “find the right path” thing followed by “do exact things in exact order in time”. Then there’s a “figure out the weird path” type challenge. I actually like that the game throws something different at you, even though some of these are pretty … strange and possibly infuriating.

    I finally find the princess who stabs me. Re-load. Not sure how you are really supposed to work that one out without re-trying. Perhaps the “oh the daughter will be around your age” hint?

    I get the hint from the jester but actually leave prematurely while trying to find the secret exit. So I watch the whole ending just to go back and do it again for the best ending. But: I do like that there are different “levels” of endings! Even tho it feels a bit “well I didn’t SAY I wanted to end” at first.

    Anyway, grab the required tools and beat the witch at her own game. Woo! I am hero.

    Love the segue into QfG2 🙂 You can even export your character! Yeey!

    If I’ll play QfG2 at some point, which I’ll probably do, I’ll definitely import my character, how cool is that!

    And at some point I’ll go back and play QfG1 VGA as a thief; there are so many houses in town I haven’t seen yet 😉

    All in all, a lot of frustration, a lot of grind, but also a lot of fun.

    GG
