Don't expect too much

Quest For Glory 4: Shadows of Darkness is a fantasy action role-playing game developed and published in 1993 by Sierra On-Line, being the forth of the Quest For Glory series. A hero is respected for its victory in a land named Tarna, but suddenly he is drawn without caution in an unknown and strange realm named Mordavia. There he finds himself without light and other useful items and resources. He meets a young woman named Katrina, that accompanies him in the quest. This land is governed by a horrific atmosphere and the hero's primary mission is to discover how to stop the menace. The view is from a side-scrolling perspective (the battles and the action are viewed from a side-view camera angle, and the players move from the left side of the screen to the right to reach a point) and from a third-person one. The adventure is based on solving puzzles, where the character can be a fighter, a thief, a magician, or a paladin, having the possibility to develop his skills by using them constantly. I inform you that the Paladin character is only available to those that have completed one of the prequels. The interface is similar to the previous games and the puzzles may seem to you very difficult, but they compensate this with the fact they are logical and acceptable. Be careful! It is essential to find a particular character in the game, otherwise, the completion of the game will be impossible. Play this intriguing game, but don't expect to be amazed.

Some bug, but good enough

This is an excellent game. The voice acting and characters are all unique, the story is fun and imaginative, if a bit cliched, and the elements for exploring the world and the various myths that you run into make it worthwhile. The only problem with this game are the bugs, however, I believe that you can get patches to fix them online. All in all, a great game, one that I have played over and over again.
