Ween: The Prophecy
The charming zaniness of Coktel's Goblinscontinues in Ween: The Prophecy,
a game filled with wacky characters and sporting an improved interface.
Unfortunately, the puzzles are often too obscure to all but die-hard
puzzlers. The plot of the game is up to Coktel's usual wackiness: you are
Ween, a hero who must complete three quests and to be rewarded with three
grains of sand, which you then must place into a magical hourglass to
vanquish the evil wizard Kraal and thereby fulfulling an ancient
prophecy. But you only have three days to do it, and a lot of hairy
puzzles to solve. Those who have played Coktel's Goblins games will be
right at home with this one-- except that many puzzles are very
convoluted and -- having taken place in a fantasy world -- not at all
clear. Worse, many objects have multiple uses which you must discover by
trial-and-error since the game's descriptions are usually vague. For
example, during the game you will come across some items that can be
combined in your cauldron to create new substances. The problem is, you
rarely know what each substance really does. To the game's credit, there
are often more things to do and more objects to manipulate in one Ween
screen than in dozens of screens in other games. The game also branches
in two occasions, thus allowing you to solve completely different sets of
puzzles. There are also two methods of on-line help: your trusty bat
sidekick, and your grandfather's friend Petroy, both of whom provide
progressively explicit clues that range from gentle hints to specific
directions. The downside is that they both require limited number of
items to divulge hints, although you can of course "cheat" by saving and
restoring. Overall, Ween is a fun puzzle adventure that gets bogged down
with too many illogical puzzles, poor writing, and incoherent plot. Those
who like solving puzzles for the sake of puzzles will likely enjoy it,
but anyone who enjoys a great story and character interaction in
adventure games will likely find it frustrating.
