Hobo-Ken!

Well, I finished that one up quick. It was a nice blast of fun - a light-hearted RPG with simple adventure game elements. It was written by Steve Meretzky who did a bunch of comedy adventure games. This is the first of his I've played, but there are a bunch of them to come. And it was fun, so I'm looking forward to them. For a light, little known RPG, it had some nice features - even just simple little things like automatically equipping the best stuff, which I wish more games did. There were random battles, but once you'd done a certain amount of them on each map screen they stopped for good, so it didn't take too long to clear the entire map of random battles which allowed me to get on with the adventure game aspects without too many interruptions. The heroes were funny, the monsters were funny...I would have said more about it, but I rushed through it so quickly that it's gone from my memory already!

Next up on the randometer is...Big Sea: The Better One Will Win! Never heard of it. Sounds like it's a German merchant trading game, but with a side helping of fantasy stuff. Could be interesting, but I'm not sure I'll stick with it for long.

...and a quick install later reveals the whole thing to be in German. I know I did German A-Level, but it's not helping me much here. I had a quick try, but I couldn't get anywhere. On to the next one...spinning the randometer now...it's Capone! Apparently it was the first light gun game for the Amiga, and it was remade to use the mouse on PC. No idea what it's going to be like.
