Discworld II: Missing Presumed...!?

Perfect Entertainment, 1996

Released for Playstation Consoles under the name “Discworld II: Mortality Bytes!.” Discworld II brings you the continuing adventures of everyone’s favorite and inept wizard-in-training, Rincewind. In this sequel, Death it seems has taken a holiday, for the deceased will not lie still.  The dead are becoming zombies that can find no rest and the people of Ankh-Morpork are frightened. You, as Rincewind, must use your wits to convince Death to resume his duties and transport the dead to the afterlife.

Eric Idle, of Monty Python fame, is hilarious as the voice of Rincewind and his rendition of “That’s Death,” sung to the tune “That’s Life,” will have you rolling in the aisles.  Additionally, the increased graphic resolution with full-screen animation and cut-scenes make you feel as if you are actually in the cartoon realm of Discworld.  This is point-and-click graphic adventuring at it’s best, play it!
