    Default The Magic Candle for the Commodore 64: Game Review

    We have published a review of the Commodore 64 RPG: The Magic Candle.

    From the review:

    You will spend a lot of time in towns. There are a lot of things you can do in town. One of the most important things is to gather information from the townsfolk. This game has a great story to it, and you can find out more by talking to various NPCs. Some give out crucial information for the success of your mission. When you meet NPCs, you can greet them (which in many cases lets you know their name), ask them for advice, ask them for any rumors they have heard, or ask them about any topic if you think that they have knowledge of it. You can even offer a bribe to some. Some will direct you to other NPCs, tell you who to talk to and what to ask them about. I recommend that you take notes; For you won't be able to remember everything they tell you. Some give you very specific information, for example Belazar, in the royal castle, tells you to ask Father Orbonn in Port Avur about Zirvanad. When you later run into Father Orbonn, you have to specifically type in the word Zirvanad when talking to him. Many NPCs will send you on side quests, and believe me, there are a lot of side quests to be done in this game. And some good puzzle solving...

    The Magic Candle was a good game. A couple of things I think it missed though:

    -The ability to roll your own characters rather then use pre built ones.
    -Rare and powerful artifacts that you could find. Looting wan't as much fun without those.
