Avadon is Good

MaidenRoseHeart, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I chose this rating because overall it is a good game. I like how the quests are arranged and that you can choose what type of fighter you are. The game is rather short in that when I played, the end game happened a lot more quickly than I expect.

  • Summary: ah, spiderweb games. i remember playing the shareware versions when i was a wee little kid and finding them so very addictive and rewarding. after buying avadon, i fired it up hoping for the same magical experience. but i was sorely disappointed.

I play it LONG TIME!!

Mary N. Detto, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: Second time playing through. Each time I start as a different character and have a blast working out the best strategies. Hours of fun and addicting. Hate the end game though - I feel like I have to commit 3 hours to it. Maybe it is just my ocd though!

A Lot of Fun - Even Being Old School

Tom43876, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Overall: This game is truly a throwback to the old roll playing games. It has a late 80’s feel to it. It has been fun playing and I would buy this again. Game Play: If you are into the blood, guts and gore of many games today this is not for you.

Fun Game

Brent, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: Great game for what it is. Plenty of reviews on this. I'll just add that I'm a little older and don't react fast enough for the newer shoot em up type games. This is a nice paced game with a fun story plot for those that want something slower or for those that don't have the newest hi tech...

  • Summary: If you read for fun, you should enjoy this retro-style RPG. Solid plot, character development, and strategic combat sequences. There is a significant amount of text to read, but if you're going to cry about it, don't buy the game. For all others, the plot twists are worth it.

A joy to play

Joe Madison, Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: I've been looking for a turn-based RPG for some time now. I like the style of play where one can plan combat actions rather than rely on fast reflexes and remembering which buttons to push.

Substance Over Sizzle

WryGuy2, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: "Avadon, the Black Fortress" by Spiderweb Software, is a throwback to the days when storytelling and depth of gameplay was paramount in Role Playing Games (RPGs). While this was partly because the computers and graphic cards back in the 80's and early 90's didn't have the pure computing power to...

29 December 2011
  • Summary: In short, this game is a masterpiece. It is an elegantly designed RPG with exactly those elements that make RPGs great: excellent storytelling, thought-provoking decisions, challenging (but not too difficult) combat that requires strategy, and an immersing game experience that draws you in and keeps...
