Sorry for the lack of reviews yesterday. After spending two weeks watching Witchcraft movies, I had to take a day off.
This game is an entrant in the 2020 Interactive Fiction Competition. All of the games can be browsed and played here.
Amazing Quest is a throwback to the vague but addictive PC games of the 80s. You are returning from a quest. What quest? That’s for you to imagine. Are you a Viking? Are you a space explorer? Are you Odysseus, trying to make your way home after the fall of Troy? Again, that is all for you to imagine.
Each turn, you get a new situation and a prompt. You’ve come across a new land. Do you send gifts? Do you attack? Click y or n. The results are as vague as the situation, leaving it to the player to imagine what it all means. When you send gifts to a recently discovered land and you get to see the sun rise as a result, is it our sun or some other planet’s sun? The choice is yours.
Amazing Quest is simple and random but also very addictive. It’s a game that’s designed to spark your imagination. Play it and seen what story you create.
