Lure of the Temptress
Set in a world of sorcery and mystique Lure of the Temptress is an adventure game that will pull you in into its land of magic, with the world being ruled by Serena, an evil sorceress with the help of the skrols, a warrior race of orcs. You are of course the hero of the story, Diermot, initially just an ordinary human imprisoned by the skrol. You start the game with a prison break, which is fairly easy, as the skrol are easy to fool. Then you go on a journey to liberate your nation from the control of the sorceress.
Lure of the Temptress is one of the first adventure games to use a virtual theater, ie., all the NPCs (Non-Playing Characters) also will have actions they perform throughout the game. You can, of course, talk to them and get them to help you achieve your goals and also help you solve your puzzles.
Another important character along the way that you have to rescue and who in turn will help you out is Goewin. The game has a really large area to explore and this makes it essential that you rescue Ratpouch, the village clown to guide you through the game. All the graphics are well made and the puzzles are simple to solve. This makes this game a perfect choice for all those curious fantasy adventure lovers.
