Description of Simon the Sorcerer

Two of the most charming adventure games ever are low-profile games that have captured many an adventurer's heart. In both games, quintessential 90's teenager Simon must prevent the evil wizard from conquering the magical world he's unwittingly zapped into. Difficult but fair puzzles, witty dialogues, and inimitable self-effacing humor and charm are the games' hallmarks.

Overall, two severely underrated games that belong on everyone's shelf.

Unfortunately, they put a rubbish anniversary edition up on GOG, meaning you can't download this good version legally and are stuck with the terrible one you'd have to pay for.

Lame ending

Sheer nostalgia for a "simpler" time, that's why I'm here! Love the soundtrack and the silliness and I want my eight-year-old to compare it to Club Penguin.
