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.
Lure of the Temptress was Revolution Sowtware's first adventure game, and a truly magnificent one! It has a classic good vs. evil tale, with your character being there to save the day.
You start off in dungeon cell guarded by some kind of humanoid monster. Your first task will be to escape the cell and the storyline will take you further.
The interface is standard point and click, and the right mouse button is used to change the action you want to perform. There are plenty of characters and locations to keep you busy for quite some time, and character locations will be random and unpredictable which adds to the reality. The puzzles are not extremely complicated (as you will see from the length of the walkthrough if you read it), and you will spend most of the time talking to various character and slowly progressing through game using very logical actions. However, the scenery is very beautiful so you probably won't hold it against the game, as you will enjoy just walking around the town and exploring the landscapes.
The music is very transparent, and pretty boring so you will probably turn it off at some point of the game.
All in all, Lure of the Temptress is an interesting game that you will certainly enjoy playing. The shortcomings are that it is pretty short, it can get frustrating in some "maze" parts and there are some ridiculous parts in which you have to actually fight.
A mark of 4 in total then for a very solid production with just a few minor problems!
In order to bypass the copy protection, when you start the game you should move the mouse cursor into the top left corner, press the left mouse button and choose Restart game from the menu!
