Good morning all
In the late 1985's I read one or two reviews about The Pawn, and so wanted to play it.
But then the matter rested there, and I forgot about it.
Until two years ago when the retro bug bit, and I then remembered about Magnetic Scrolls. I downloaded the DOS version (I think) but it was so a schlepp to play it on a mobile device that I put it aside.
Until yesterday, some kind soul posted on the google plus forums about the data recovery method used to resuscitate the original source code for Magnetic Scrolls' games - and I followed the links, and gleefully downloaded The Pawn on my Android device.
First impressions are good, you don't need to type in commands, just tap tappity tap and you're good to go.
Graphics looks good, the overall layout of the game is also well-thought out, and the map is an additional bonus.
At the moment I'm just walking around like crazy, trying to get a feel for the thing, before resetting my progress and starting off in earnest.
So far it looks good, but I will definitely shout out if I discover some funky gremlin or two.
As for the accompanying PDF giving a bit of history, there's one or two spelling mistakes in there, whom do I report it to?
