Comments: Gremlin Graphics is not a company noted for its adventures.
"Tinderbox" is a fairy tale, in which youplay the part of Tom,
a common foot-soldier, who has to defeat the wicked witch and
evil king to gain the hand of the fair Rowella. As an
adventure, it's a disgrace. It is written entirely in Basic,
and contains large numbers of boring locations where little or
nothing happens. The computer does not understand even a
simple, standard adventure command such as Look. As Tom
happily wades through a lake without so much as getting his
feet wet, he may well ponder his bad luck in not signing up as
a mercenary with Pete Austin or Brian Howarth. The B side of
the cassette contains a long fairy story printed up screen by
screen. It is the story of Tom, the common foot, and you've
guessed the rest already. All profits go to the Soft-Aid
appeal for Ethiopia. It's very fine of Gremlin Graphics to do
that, but they might have chosen a halfway decent program to
flog for charity. If you care about Ethiopia - and you should
- then send a fiver to Bob Geldof. There's no point bothering
with "Tinderbox" - it lights nobody's fire.
