Silk Road 2 is a shareware RPG released by SPRITE back in 1998. The game plays like Zelda, except you can use three weapons at the same time, and you save by collecting Goddess Coins.
The game’s actually quite fun, once you get to play it for more than five minutes. You move with the arrow keys [not the number keys], attack with Z/X/C, and access the menu with V. You start off with a straw, which shoots out bubbles and hurts the enemy.
No, I’m not joking.
The story starts out with a magician summoning a giant chicken from the sky. She destroys the chicken, but a catgirl is left behind! So she does the natural thing to do: She takes her to a spring and they both partake in nekkid swimming! After some very revealing scenes which I wanted to post but couldn’t due to Parodius regulations [even if they are 4 pixel nipples], you start to play.
Well, give it a shot. It’s fun, you know. The game isn’t quite easily findable, though.
And a few notes on the game: Sometimes, I’m guessing that it depends on your video card, the intro and credits screen will have garbage on them, bits of images from sequences that are going to be shown or have already been shown. I don’t know how to fix this. Also, do NOT GO TO FULLSCREEN MODE. I had to reinstall the game so it would let me go to windowed mode. :\
This patch translates things! Sorta. Again, Langfand00d surprises us with their - uh, his Babelfish skills. The text makes no sense… but at the same time it does. It tells you just about enough for you to figure out things on your own. It’s playable, and it seems to be complete, so there.
Langfand00d has a link to an FTP where you can download the game. Since it’s shareware, there’s no problem with that. The game can’t be completed until you register it…
Don’t worry, just try to register it once you patch the game. *cough*

Does not workReviewed By: GHS on 01 Mar 2010
The “translation” patch makes the words scrambled and unclear, and the game unplayable (makes the game stuck in certain places). It also does not show some text (skips it). The read me TXT makes NO sense. The only thing I was able to get out of it was the register code (SILK28117). You can figure out the game without a translation up to the desert part where you need it in English to solve it (the door with the 4 number code, etc.) or tells you’re stuck.
The code for the door is 0617. The game (V2.11) does not seem to be a full version or it is full of bugs. I can’t get passed the flower gate, can’t get on the boat. I’ve seen screen shots of places I haven’t seen like a big star on the ground and a beach.
Recommended - Yes
