Fed up with his mundane existence and his nagging wife (Dro Ning), not to mention his whinging kids (Mo Ning and Complay Ning), Yaw Ning decides to leave them and look for adventure down at the local (The Drink Ing?). There he hears tell that Spoof the Magic Dragon has returned...

Alex: The adventure's not much like the description, but you wouldn't expect it to be. The aim is to find a component for the doctor's machine. Response to your commands is excellent, with almost immediate replies. But the best part about this adventure is the humour, which makes a pleasant change from the usual seriousness. HIT

Alan G: Adventures aren't usually very funny, but this one is and it tends to make it stand out from the rest. What's more, you don't have to wait ages for a reply. However, text-only adventures aren't new, and they only have limited appeal. Even this one, with its humour, will only be interesting for a short time. The text is white on a blue background and there's absolutely no sound at all. MISS

Alan H: The idea is quite basic, but the content is much better than lots of the other adventures, especially the humour which helps to maintain your interest. This all goes to make one of the most playable adventures around, and there are various screen prompts to help you on your way. The fact that there's no sound, rather than detracting from the game, tends to make it even better. HIT
