Classic Game of the Month Review: Warlock Domain
Published: May 1, 2000
Part of Series: Classic Game of the Month Reviews
The style of this game can be called "olschool-puzzle-adventure". You'll have to explore a really big castle, and solve tons of puzzles along the way. They are not the type of puzzles of games like Nightmare or Xod, but more the "pick things up, and doing things which changes things elsewhere" :) style. Quite enjoyable, and really challenging, I must say.
Along the way, there's also some action, like a couple of RPG battles. The RPG battles aren't that special, they are the normal turn-based style, but they're not that bad either. The graphics are not that fantastic, they are STK, but all rather simple, kind of like the first episodes of Chrono Wars. Cool things: You can kill most people in the game, even the good guys :), and there's a couple of endings!
This game is a side-story to Htrae, Alan's "larger" project. I do hope he is ever going to finish that. A demo was released some time ago, but after that I never heard from Alan anymore... If you like some old-fashioned adventure/inventory-style puzzles, you should really give Warlock Domain a try.
