> THE SERPENT'S STAR by Br0derbund Software


• Completed by Brendan Phoenix
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

The Serpent's Star is a graphics adventure game, which is the follow-up from Mask of the Sun. It's very similar to the original game but unfortunately it appears to contain less spot effects throughout. Saying that, it's still worthy of a play...


Time to place the Serpent's Star...


...into the niche - whatever that is!


WTF!


Cool!


Almost there...


"I'M RICH!"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan followed a walkthrough of the game.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have placed the Serpent's Star into the niche, the ending kicks in with an epilogue and various images to help tell the final chapter.

COMMENTS:

  • Brendan: The game was pretty enjoyable to play and complete. I do not think the ending is quite as good as Mask of the Sun, but again, it is defiantly better than most text adventure games out there. A solid 5.5/10 from me.
     
  • Vinny: I'm really impressed with this ending... a great epilogue, a bit of 'animation' and some nice graphics. 6/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher:

    You find yourself on Vinny's forum discussing an ending from an old text adventure.

    ENTER OPINION

    Seems like a fairly good adventure with a nice graphical sequence at the end. Certainly better than just ending on a ream of text.

    GO WEST

    Didn't they have several hit singles in the 1980s, including The King Of Wishful Thinking?
  • Brendan Phoenix: And We Close Our Eye's - But you don't want to here or you may miss a half decent adventure ending....and those are rare!
  • Gaz Spence: Not a bad ending for a text game and until now I hadn't realised that there was a sequel to Mask of the Sun. Very Indy-esque but that is no bad thing.

FINAL SAY: A little more than your average graphics adventure ending!

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
