I always love it when a classic game gets re-done with the official sanction of the original developers. It’s even better, as in this case, when it’s done *by* the original developers. Even more unusual still, it’s from a developer I’ve covered before, the ones that did “Galax-E-Mail” which I reviewed waaaaaaaaaay back on Day 23. Such is the case with “Elfland Reloaded Vol. 1 “ where the original developers have taken a popular old MS-DOS game, given it a facelift, and are asking a dollar for their efforts. Seems fair to me. And they did all this way back in 2009, and it somehow escaped my notice before now.
“Elfland Reloaded Vol. 1 “ is a platformer that has you jumping, climbing, hitting switches like you might expect from a platformer. But you also get to interact with NPCs, conversing with them to get hints on how to proceed. There’s a lot to like for a dollar.
Here’s what the publisher (Bog Turtle Games LLC) has to say about the game:
“In Elfland Reloaded, you take on the role of Elfie or Elfita to try and save the elf village from threatening trolls. On your quest, you will encounter helpful turtles, aggressive birds, bouncing springs, purple elf-eaters, and other assorted creatures. In the first volume, your journey will take you into Gorgimer’s Castle where you will have to overcome bats, puzzles, and Gorgimer’s pet.”
