Description of Companions of Xanth

Companions of Xanth is a charming game based on Piers Anthony's "Demons Don't Dream," in which two humans compete for a prize without knowing that two demons are using them as tools in their own wager.

Like the novels, puzzles are heavily pun-related in ways reminiscent of Infocom's Nord and Bert, but a lot easier. Most puzzles are also not related to the plot, and the game is far too easy. It's a fun game, but not up to par with other Legend releases. Recommended only for fans of the novel and novice adventurers.

PAPERBRAIN: "A horrible novel"? Oh, I see, you're one of those "fans" who thinks you could do better. I think this game is ridiculous, but it's Xanth, so I had to try it. And now, years later, I'm downloading it just for the hell of it. Maybe I'll read Demons Don't Dream repeatedly while playing it. It was a goofy novel, but it was still fun and much better written than anything I've read by PAPERBRAIN.
You know, I detest people like you. ... I'm sure you've memorized every single character in every book you've ever read, no matter how insignificant, just so you can smirk at people who don't remember every little blade of grass in every book. And you actually think that strangers should follow your advice, because you're obviously the end all be all on everything. Tell you what; you write something better than Demons Don't Dream or Killobyte, then I won't think of you as a acne faced, greasy haired, little kid with an oversized mouth.

Oops not Terry Brooks, he is American, and writes epic fantasy, not satirical fantasy I meant to say Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld novels.

A bad game based on a horrible novel. "Demons Don't Dream" was the worst book in a series that could be very good or very bad depending on Piers Anthony's mood at the time. If you are a fan of the series, stick to Journey into Xanth, for that matter, stick to the earlier books, cause Anthony started trying too hard to be funny and profound after Terry Brooks started being published in the US.

Very very aggravating with plenty items really early in game that you can miss and be doomed later on causing you to have to start all over.
Not well designed but fans of the series will probably enjoy it.

This file is actually "A Journey into Xanth", a text only game published in 1993 - Companions of Xanth was later. This is fun if you've read the series, but I'm finding it frustrating without hints!
