LTTP: Simon the Sorcerer 5?! And 4?! And 3???

WHO KNEW? Well, the fourth and fifth games, especially, although I’ve never played the third (Simon the Sorcerer 3-D) either. But I didn’t know this! Did you know this? I am in shock. Certainly, except for all the DS mysteries and fan remakes, I have avoided most newfangled adventure games, which are cheaply made, goofy, badly translated, and inexplicably huge in Germany.

Sorry, I am barely making sense. But, but, Simon the Sorcerer, you guys.

And Simon the Sorcerer II.

And the fifth one.

I’m trying to decide whether to attempt the demo, which is, of course, in German.

    Uhm, I’ve never even heard of the Simon the Sorcerer series until this post. Why have I gone this long without playing these games?! Gonna go work on that now, thanks 😛

    I definitely played the first one, but I think it was from a sleeve of shareware discs, and I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t play past a certain point. Same thing happened to me with some King’s Quest game, very frustrating. Of course any adventure game I ever got the full version of would never run past the opening sequence on any of my PC’s.

    Jenn—
    If you don’t mind puzzle-heavy adventure games, Gobliiins 4 just came out, and it’s quite amazing compared to the other newfangled nonsense. And the translation is great! (It’s French)

    But, no sprites. Why do sequels do this to us? 3D isn’t always prettier. In fact, it’s basically never prettier.

      Neat! I never played Gobliiins games as I should’ve, but I was a huge Woodruff and the Schnibble fan.

      Anyway, thank you! I absolutely have to play this. (It certainly helps, too, that a series creator designed this one.)
