One of the classic puzzle games for the PC.

  • Excerpt: What happens when you mix up a flat disc-shaped world held up by four elephants on the back of a giant turtle, Eric Idle's voice and some gorgeous old school cartoon graphics and a terrifically fun script? A great computer game. Based on the world explored in Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld books this game starts when Death - the guy with the cloak, scythe, a grand-daughter named Susan and a rather adorable horse - goes missing and people who die, well, just carry on.

If you can find this, it's well worth buying.

  • Excerpt: Death - the grim reaper. The ultimate equaliser. A farewell to the flesh. The end of existence, or merely the next dark step on a journey of mystery? I haven't got a flipping clue, and I'm in no hurry to find out. You could say that Death comes to everyone,and on the Discworld, this is pretty much the case. Until that is, Death goes missing, and things start to go awry.

  • Excerpt: Discworld 2: Mortality Bytes is the second of the (so far) three computer games by Perfect Entertainment based on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. Like the first game it has you playing the part of extremely put-upon wizard Rincewind, who must find out why people are dying and then… sort of getting up and walking around, and not dying in the traditional way. (Fans of the novels will recognise this as the basic plot from Reaper Man.

  • Excerpt: Mortality Bites, or so the makers of Discworld 2 will tell you anyway in the second ‘real’ adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. If you were one of the unfortunates who had the first inflicted upon them then you'll be forgiven for steering well clear of this title, but you'd be wrong too because its much improved.

  • Excerpt: Yes I have to agree with most people in the fact that the Discworld games are funny, including this one, but I find the conversations are too long, and with too little interaction, and so they become tedious very quickly. This is the major drawback in the first game and the major drawback in the second. In case you have no prior knowledge to Discworld 2, it is the sequel of a game based upon a series of books written by Terry Pratchett.

  • Excerpt: I love this game it is so damm fustrating: When you final realise what you have to do then you realise how easy it was. The sound is superb especially the voice of Rincewind (eric Idol) one thing to watch out for is (no that would be telling just watch everything and you will see) Graphics are spot on as I would expect and some of the sound effects when you have conversations with people are quite amusing, try it and you will see what I mean.

Dead!

  • Excerpt: "Missing Presumed...??!! is Discworld 2's subtitle. The joke being, of course, that Death has disappeared. Not the concept of death, you understand, but our scythe-wielding friend with the nice line in robes. This may not be immediate cause for concern, but unfortunately the deceased are now unable to leave our dimension, and seem destined to hover in simultaneous life and death. Simultaneous oneness and difference. Acintya bheda bheda tattva. And ...
  • Pros: Good fun .
  • Cons: But still a bit crap

  • Excerpt: I love the Discworld games, and through them have come to love the Discworld books. I had never read any Terry Pratchet before, but enjoyed the humour of the games so much, I thought I'd give them a go, and was very impressed. I would imagine if you read the books first, it must be even better, seeing all the little characters you already know, come to life.
