Companions of Xanth

Adventure 1993 Dos Dosbox Legend Entertainment Humorous First person

A vein of humor and misadventure travels this adventure game!

Companions of Xanth is a classic, non parser (it's commands based) adventure game, that takes you on a really cool adventure in the land of Xanth. The world of the game inspired by the novel Demons Don't Dream, which was a cool, (less humorous than the game, though it had it's share of fun and funny moments) fantasy kind of game. So, no matter what, it had all the elements that high fantasy players and readers would expect, but it also had a tongue in cheek attitude there, that was definitely worth sinking into. So, if you want a cool, graphically appealing adventure game, that is set in a world that combines the modern with the one where daemons live, it's a cool game to be a part of. More than anything, it has a built that is really fascinating, and, also, it is built to produce really interesting results, in terms of the puzzles that it includes, and the way it puts story at your fingertips, while also immersing you in these puzzles. It's like a more mature Zork: Grand Inquisitor, with that kind of a tongue in cheek humor and a serious side that is definitely well tempered in the humor!

Very beautiful, fun but too easy

Designed in the manner of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, this humorous adventure game is based on the novel "Demons Don't Dream" by author Piers Anthony and is revolved around two humans that are compete for a prize, not knowing that their actions are actually manipulated by two demons that have put a wager on the competition's outcome. The game is heavy with puns and satire which will definitely get a few giggles out of you. The gameplay is a bit too easy in my opinion and while the puzzles are interesting, many of them are actually not relevant to the game's plot. The game is visually quite outstanding, with beautiful art filled with rich colors and immense detail. The interface and gameplay is very simple to understand and the whole game will be over before you know it. This is not a game for players looking for a challenge, since this game requires almost no thinking or mental effort to win. A nice game for fans of the novel and other players who are looking for a good and easy game time. Play at your discretion.
