Vanilla Simon's Quest

Reviewed By: timeisup on 10 Apr 2020

If someone had never played this game before and really hated looking up hints for games, I’d probably recommend them this hack. This is Simon’s Quest for beginners. The hints are all in game, so it should be possible to beat it, but it also removes all the character, flavor and mystery of the game.

As someone who grew up with this game, almost returned it because I hated it so much and ending up loving it by talking to kids at school about how to advance—it’s impossible for me to play this hack with a fresh perspective. Simon’s Quest’s charm, even a campy charm, will always be the cryptic nature of the hints and dialog. Be they from either poor translation or on purpose.

This has no real value for me. Beginners and maybe those who disliked the original due to its cryptic nature but still liked the gameplay may like it though.
