Quite simply - awful. The only reason to play this is if you have a desire to play all of the Fergus McNeill games, or in my case, to document some piece of gaming history that otherwise would be forgotten . . .

Part one is simply a large number of locations and the quest is solved by finding two objects. That's it, no puzzles, no other characters to talk to. There are half a dozen pictures of typical Quill quality.

There are a couple of locations where you get stuck - into a dark cave / swamp etc. - and a couple of bugs with the bottle of wine item (which actually has no purpose) - something like drop bottle, which leaves you with the bottle, but drops the wine in the bottle!




Parser/Vocabulary (Rating: 2/10)

Quill so two word entry but very limited. If you are not familiar with the Quill you will struggle.

Atmosphere (Rating: 1/10)

Reasonable atmosphere is the only reason to play . . .

Cruelty (Rating: Merciful)

Easy peasy.

Puzzles (Rating: 0/10)

there are none!

Overall (Rating: 1/10)

Scores 1 for atmosphere.
