Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Alchemist'

Rating:4 User: Juan F. Ramirez

One of the earliest arcade adventures for the Spectrum, in which you're an alchemist that enters the castle of the Evil Warlock to destroy him by finding the four pieces of the "Spell of Destruction".

As I said before, the great merit of this game is that is one of the first adventures where you can use objects and spells to achieve your mission, and the original feature of converting yourself into an eagle whenever is needed to finish the mission.

In 1983, a game like this, with big characters, decent graphics, a 30-screens map and a level of stamina to control, all in a well done atmosphere was a hit. Nowadays is just a nice game to remember, one of the best games of Imagine before they broke out.
