Summary: Adventure games have prospered in better times because the genre is pretty close to non-existent these days. Unlike the similarly obscure tower defense genre, however, adventure titles have a robust legacy that will probably keep them from ever disappearing completely.
Excerpt: Lure of the Temptress is a DOS based point-and-click adventure game set in medieval times, released in 1992 by Revolution Software. The game is the first commercial project by the UK game development company.
Excerpt: Lure of The Temptress (A Horse, a hero, a good girl and a very very bad girl) Lure of the Temptress is the first game offered to the gaming world by a then fledgling development company, Revolution Software. Released in 1991-92, the game has been resurrected by Sold Out Software.
Conclusion: It is difficult to answer the question of whether this game is worth playing. Consideration prompts a hesitant “yes”, but not for the usual reasons. Lure of the Temptress is certainly the weakest game in the Revolution lineup, and you won’t find eye-popping graphics or a complex plot to coo over.
Conclusion: S'il souffre clairement d'une faible durée de vie, d'énigmes trop faciles et d'un aspect graphique honnête tout au plus, Lure of the Temptress apparaît comme un jeu plus que digne d’intérêt.
Pros: Une aventure drôle et savoureuse...
, L'ambiance réussie...
, Un gameplay et une interface efficaces
, Quelques innovations bienvenues (les compagnons, le Virtual Theatre)
Cons: ... mais beaucoup trop courte !
, ... malgré une réalisation tout juste correcte
