City of Blood by Craig Dutton

You play an adventurer who is visiting his old mentor in Port Silvermoon. Suddenly in mid-conversation your friend has been murdered! It's your mission to investigate why and to seek vengeance.

Hi Craig,

This was an excellent game. I loved the epic landscape, detailed descriptions and interesting characters. The puzzles were more than tricky, and I'm definitely grateful for the walkthrough! I particularly liked the cartographer.

I've given it a 4 instead of a 5 for two reasons: first, because there were a few proofreading issues; and second, because sometimes the directions in the description didn't match the directions you could actually go (e.g. the description would say that the blacksmith is to the sw, but really he's s). That said, I totally enjoyed it, and will likely play it again once I've forgotten some of the answers to the puzzles.

Cheers,

Sue.

This one is really complex, but as always with Craig's games there's a great story. You get a real sense of achievement when you manage to work out the puzzles without looking at the walkthrough -- but I challenge anybody to solve all of them without help: I had to fall back on the walkthrough several times. Nevertheless, it's an immersive and atmospheric game with some vivid characters.

It is a great story line, but I think it would've been easier to follow if there was a map available or less directions as you can easily get lost in the City of Blood.

Its a really good game and it draws you in. But it should've had less writing

Can't believe I didn't check the headstones in the graveyard, thanks for that! Thank you very much for the walkthrough Craig, I tried not to look at it too often but there were a few occasions where I would never have been able to work out the puzzles without its help, thanks for taking the trouble to do that. It was another brilliant game anyway, very challenging and well written, clear, detailed descriptions and a good range of characters and locations as well as a well planned out adventure, can't wait for your future games!
