I bought this version off E-Bay by accident and played it only because I felt like getting my money’s worth. I was pleasantly surprised.
The game is virtually unchanged from the original, just improved technically. You still type in your commands, so the game does not become any easier (not that it was terribly difficult in the first place). The graphics are actually pleasant to look at and the sound is not excruciating like it was in the original.
The scenery has changed for the better in my opinion. Some of the screens were graphically enhanced, a spooky forest was added, and a few items now show up in different locations. There is also an introduction which lays out the plot instead of the trigger the original had to get the same basic storyline laid out to you.
They also fixed the gnome name guessing game.
Bravo. But it’s hard to improve too much on an already shoddy game with little plot or character development.
