Description of Legend of The Sword

Legend of the Sword is a well-written fantasy adventure that was revolutionary in many ways for its time despite its being relatively unknown: fluid mouse support, on-screen map, compass rose, and some RPG elements such as random encounters and passage of day and night. The find-the-magical-sword plot is typical, but well-written.

With engaging puzzles and many locations to explore, this is one of Rainbird's finest underdogs, and much better than its sequel Final Battle. Recommended.

Loved this game growing up.

Played it to death but was never able to finish it. Felt like there was always something new to discover. The writing was pretty funny too, if not a bit dated now.

When putting on an earring you found another character remarks "You look like a wooly woofter!" Not sure why that stuck with me.
