Game Review (written by Kgabs) Added on: 09/07/2006
Simon the Sorcerer is a classic game from the Amiga system that, like many other Amiga games, has almost been completely forgotten. It stars a boy name Simon who only wanted a Game Boy for Christmas. His life was then turned around when a dog turns up on his birthday with a strange book. This book transports him to a new dimension where he needs to become an adolescent sorcerer who must set out alone to save a magical kingdom from destruction. His main quest is to save Calypso from the malevolent Sordid, but many obstacles plague his path.
He must solve many different riddles and accomplish many different tasks to make it to the Sordid. Many things stand between Simon and the salvation of his magical kingdom.
In many ways this game was a step ahead of almost every game before its time. It was the first to give you complete control over your actions. You have an arrangement of twelve different actions that you can choose to use, plus a vast supply of tools that you pick up along the way. The puzzles are all very well thought, and never leave you feeling disappointed. The map is easily navigated, as you can actually just click a place and Simon will visit it on command. This game truly revolutionized any

of the point and click games that came before it. It may be argued that this actually set the standard for adventure games of this type. This game used all hand drawn characters and backgrounds. Every part of this game was actually made by hand. It also was among the first video games to incorporate two hundred and fifty six colors.
The game itself thrives on cheesy British humor and a host of imaginative situations. Simon, as far as characters go, is rather lacking, so there are a bunch of more interesting ones littered throughout the entire game. For the sake of spoilers, let’s say it’s kind of like a Benny Hill comedy mixed with a childhood fairy tale.
I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys action/adventure as well as childlike humor. Being as I think everyone enjoys childlike humor. I think that this game is worth a shot by all action, adventure, strategy, mystery, or puzzle game enthusiasts. This game is probably one of the most fun games ever created. With a wacky assortment of characters, tools, and plot lines, this game has a little bit of something for everybody.

A very simple, easy game to get to grips but so much fun. I remember playing this over and over as a kid when we got our first PC. I loved the humour and intellect of it all. Great fun.
