Companions of Xanth

Legend Entertainment Company, 1993

This is the first adventure game where Legend left behind the text parser and started using point-and-click interface. Companions of Xanth is based on one of the Xanth books, Demons Don't Dream, fantasy masterpieces written by Piers Anthony. Fans of the Xanth novel series will nevertheless be enchanted by this book brought to life. The game beautifully captures the magical world of Xanth, which you will explore with a chosen Companion while trying to beat another explorer just like you to the finish line of this deadly game whose stakes are the existence of magic itself.

The graphics are quite nice for the era and the added sound support makes this one a winner. Choose your character and explore the world of Xanth in this interactive fairy tale for children of all ages.
