Abandoned Places 2
Amiga - 1993
Description of Abandoned Places 2
Abandoned Places 2 is an excellent adventure RPG that is a follow up to the first in the series, A Time For Heroes. It was released in 1993 by the developer ArtGame and received mostly positive reviews from Amiga based magazines.
There are many aspects of the game which are a vast improvement over its predecessor, one of the most important being the graphics. The first game was a little rough around the edges whereas AP2 has significantly improved graphics and gameplay. The lack of in game music has made way for the suspense building sound of distant footsteps, giving a creepy edge to gameplay.
While Abandoned Places 2 has improved over the original is many areas, there are aspects which let the game down. The first drawback is the lack of music whilst playing the game. The cutscene music is great, but it would have been nice to have something playing over the mildly irritating sound of constant footsteps while exploring. The second issue is the lack of a mini map. The first game had a map integrated into the gameplay window making it easy to keep track of where you have been and where your next goal is, but a lack of one makes navigating and escaping even the starting dungeon extremely difficult.
With a compelling storyline and greatly improved gameplay, Abandoned Places 2 triumphs over the original in many ways. While there are a few things holding the game back, that shouldn’t overshadow the fact that this is an excellent RPG that any fan of adventure would enjoy playing.
