Item - True Hero Minigame


Series: Miscellaneous Works by Robertson Sondoh Jr.
Author: Sondoh Jr., Robertson
Date: 2007
Length: 1 page
User Summary: This is a single-page diversion, reminiscent of (but simpler than) PageQuest. You create a character with two stats (HP and AP), wander through a maze fighting monsters, and try to come out alive and with as many items and experience points as possible. The tongue-in-cheek adventure is available online as a free download.
Demian's Thoughts: I like the idea of a single-page gamebook; it's an interesting constraint to stimulate creativity, and it was used to great effect in PageQuest. This is a less ambitious undertaking, having a simpler combat system and a fixed map, but it's still an entertaining diversion for the few minutes it takes to find the optimal path to gain the most experience. The amusing illustrations don't hurt, and you can't beat the price of free.
