I must say I got used to typing commands instead of using function keys.

These were the days...
"Black cauldron", "Space Quest", "Quest for Glory" - what these old games have in common is immersive atmosphere present day, high-budget productions with high-powered graphics lack. For these reason, I gave this game 4.

I think this game was intended to be played by children, so the function key controls are for ease of play.

No need to shoot us, Guest_Alex... but indeed. it is down.

kerner.dtdns.net/content/games/
Black%20Cauldron,%20The.zip

This filename is pretty dubious, what with the commas and all... The link is broken anyhow!

You can also get this from:

which I found by reading the Technical Note at the bottom of the review...

You dont have to quench his thirst every few screens. I remember playing this on my old 386 back in the day... use MoSlo or something of the sort because it's probably the CPU screen making that happen. The thirsty/hungry thing should only realistically happen every 10-15 minutes.

There's also a LOT of endings to this beast. I got them all back in the day... lots of different solutions to puzzles. Good stuff.

This game reminds me of the comic version of the Disney movie The Black Cauldron I once read. I also played this game before, but not this original version. I played the remake version instead. The remake version uses the graphics from the original, so the graphics are exactly the same as depicted in the screenshots in the review, but instead of typing the remake uses point and click interface. I must say I prefer that one, only because I am such a lazy sort that prefers to point and click, avoiding typing :whistle:
