In Gavin's Quest you must lead our hero dwarf Gavin into Black Mountain to restore his family's honour.You must use your wits and bravery to defeat the hordes of orcish enemies that stand in your way.
In the game Gavin’s Quest you must battle your way through Black Mountain which was a long lost dwarven mine. Your hero is given a map handed down to him from his father and alone he enters the mountain. The old mine is overrun with all kinds of goblins, orcs , trolls, ogres and cyclops who would like nothing better than have you for lunch. So to overcome the odds your hero must be brave.
The lost treasure of the mine is locked up in vaults which are locked with doors that will only open if you unravel the rune puzzle. I got the idea for this when watching The Lord Of The Rings when Gandalf arrives at Moria and can’t remember the password. In the game each rune symbol represents a word in a sentence so you must use the power of deduction to unravel the puzzle. There are clues to most of the runes in visual cues or in dialogue in the most unlikely of places. As you unravel one rune and that rune is reused the puzzles get easier. The rewards for solving get better as well the deeper into the mountain you go. Of course deep in the mountain are the biggest and nasties orcs of them all including the Ogre King himself.
Also inside the vaults are better items and magic scrolls that Gavin can use to get past the large numbers of monsters that inhabit the mountain. Gavin will get spells to increase his speed and resistance as well as powerful spells that will turn to tide on the orcish enemies.
If you like hack and slash games but also want to think a bit then Gavin’s Quest is for you.
My name is Andy I am a proud father of two and longtime fan of all things relating to games and especially those which contain the races featured in Tolkien’s books. I started out as a modder for an older RTS game “Warlords Battlecry III” and I created a pretty large mod for that game (1035 Mod).
