Games of the Past Review: Shadowgate

Oprainfall writes:

"Shadowgate’s tale of legendary heroism begins at the unsettlingly modest gate to the castle. The unnamed knight reminisces about the last words he heard; he is the last of a long line of kings and it falls to him to prevent the evil Warlock Lord from raising the nightmarish beast, the Behemoth, a creature that will surely raze the lands, from the depths of hell. From this auspicious start, you’ll open the strangely small wooden door and enter the castle proper. You’ll solve a basic puzzle to open the next door, which will give you a false sense of confidence. In the next room, a dusty book lays on a pedestal. You’ll pick it up and immediately regret it as the floor drops out and you plummet to your death, the first of many to come." (Retro, Shadowgate) 3/5

I remember playing this when I was young as hell. I rented it and it didn't come with the manual. I had no clue how to advance the game past the opening sequence (point and click games were something I never dabbled in). Come to find out the key to te entrance was hidden right above the door.

Needless to say, I returned the game and never got past the first door o enter the game. Lol

Lol yep I was a kid too and loved it - but only because I kept calling Nintendo's tip line. Nintendo loved me and my parents probably hated me. I must have blocked out the memory of getting in trouble for calling Nintendo so much.

No such thing as internet FAQs back then heh.

Great game. So was shadowgate 64. I miss these old games. Deja vu was great too.

This is, in fact, my favorite video game of all time.
