Dante's Inferno is a creepy game that is based on
one of the most famous pieces of world literature - The
Divine Comedy, which was written hundreds of years ago.
You have to guide the main character through hell and
purgatory to reach paradise, collecting items on the way
to solve simple puzzles as you progress through the
rings of hell, before confronting the devil itself. It's
not a bad little game, with a few simple puzzles to
solve. The graphics and sound are okay for the time, and
it's not too difficult either...
Devil: "Has anyone
seen my legs?"
Night, night... The
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using a solution I found on the internet and a few saved
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
One you get past the devil at the end, you get to see
the main character back on earth with the moon and stars
above him. A message reading 'SEE ONCE MORE THE STARS'
scrolls across the bottom as a short tune plays. The
game then ends.
- Neil: It was a
relief to see the end, but it wasn't spectacular. 4/10.
- Vinny: 'See
once more, the stars'... I'm sure that's a quote from
Doctor Who! Anyway - a great game that was slated by
ZZAP!64 magazine. I actually like the exploration side
of it and think it makes a great game for 1986.
As for the ending... really; is THAT it?! I was
expecting so much more from Denton Designs :( 4/10 from
- Brendan: Maybe
the ending is to do with this from Dante Alighieri's
“To get back up to the shining world from there
My guide and I went into that hidden tunnel,
And Following its path, we took no care
To rest, but climbed: he first, then I-so far,
through a round aperture I saw appear
Some of the beautiful things that Heaven bears,
Where we came forth, and once more saw the stars.”
Given this, the ending is a little bit more impressive
as it's how the poem ends. Some thought has actually
gone into it. It's not great by any means, but shows
they understood the subject matter a little bit.
- Andy Vasiey:
Didn't like the game, but the ending is OK I guess.
FINAL SAY: Not bad. I was just glad to get out
