Darkened Skye & Skittles

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Itīs not often that I burst out laughing in the middle of a game because of a magic item. This game definitely deserved it.

I got this game because it had a young woman on its cover, and talked about roleplaying, magic, puzzles and witty humor. I thought this was definitely the kind of game to review for a womanīs site! The beginning of the game was encouraging - nice graphics, great humor, sort of a Longest Journey explore-and-learn game.

Then, you run across a strange item. Itīs a small oval colored object with a S on it. "Jeez, it looks like a Skittle" I said to myself, laughing. You go further, fighting monsters, doing some hop-hop-hop arcade sorts of things. Then you reach the Old Woman. And she gasps when she sees what you have. "What you have there," she says in astonishment, "is ... a Skittle!"

That was just too much for me, I was rolling on the floor. A game whose purpose it is to sell you candy? As if most game players need any enticement! They definitely donīt mention this anywhere on the box.

There are some annoying aspects to the game (besides the blatant pushing of small colorful candies). The movement is a little flaky. The video playing is also flaky - you can go through the same scene twice and one time itīll show you a video and the next time you play that scene (with a new character) it wonīt. But the humor is great, and the graphics are nice. You might even call it ... eye candy.

Recommended if you enjoy RPGs with a sense of humor.
