I wanna be a wizard!
Did Guybrush forget his lines?
Nope, it’s Simon, a small boy that has to save an old magician Calypso who was captured by the evil Warlock Sordid! After a small magic show (one of the funniest credit sequences actually) Simon is sucked through a trans-dimensional worm-hole and escapes a band of Goblins, who "invited" him for supper!
OK enough of the foreplay!
You start in the old mans cottage (with a beautiful pile of compost in the back yard). It’s a classic adventure game, so you'll have to collect things. You'll also need money which you must steal from a fire breathing dragon (luckily you're wearing your asbestos underpants)! You must turn a tormented druid into a toad, you must fight a cheating witch, you have to help the woodworms, you cheer up a depressed woodcutter, bring dwarves bear, unwrap a mummy, rescue a damsel in distress, eat tons of swamp stew (yummy, yummy)... you get the picture. Oh, and in the end, you get to fight the evil magician Sordid!
In case you get stuck…Who cares!!!
Oops, sorry… You can always look for a solution in the wonderful "Simon for dummies" walkthrough available in the extras! But a word of advice: easy on the swamp stew. If you eat too much, you'll need an extra magazine when you go to the toilet the very next morning!
A pure 5 pointer!
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
