Thanks Gelert

I remember reading about this when episode 1 first released. I can't be sure but something must have turned me off. Did you play it Gelert? Maybe its keyboard controlled as I can't find any info on the controls and that might be why I bypassed this. Are there any reviews that you know of?

Hi Greyfuss
I have only pleayed a demo disk that was sent to me a few years ago.
Bob has contacted me now to say that all 3 are available at that price.
I'll ask him to pop by. But, if that doesn't happen, do you want his Email address ?

Sounds like a cool game to me. But I'm not ready to buy it this month, I probably will be ready to buy all 3 episodes next month. May I have Bob's email address, please?

GreyFuss the game is mouse and keyboard control. There is a review that can be found Here

Thanks for letting us know Gelert. That's a very reasonable price and sounds like an interesting game. The screenshots are great Smile

Sure (whenever I can spare time to play among my schoolwork and other hobbies, of which PC gaming is one of these hobbies).

er, do you know of where I can get any walkthoughs for these 3 episodes, GF, anyone?


@GF, I just sent you an email of Bob's email address.

I played the demo of Antique Chronicles a few years back. It was pretty long, I think it covered most of episode 1. I remember the game was a bit clunky in mechanics and seemed a tad buggy. This is not a bit criticism though considering when the game was released and the fact that I was trying to play it on a relatively high powered WinXP computer. I recall the movements were fast and hard to control due to my fast PC I think. I believe I moved around via the keyboard and used my mouse to interact with characters, inventory, etc. The graphics were decent considering the time the game was released. I saved the url to buy the other episodes, but alas it has always been one of those games I kept putting off for a later purchase. At the current price point, I don't see any reason to not try the game out.

People, re the review of the Ancient Chronicles that I said I was going to do after buying this game - I'm sorry, but I have too many other things to do so I'll have to pass the job of reviewing this game to someone else.

My sincere apologies.

I hope you understand.

Thank you.
