I don’t know what it is lately, but it’s all retro lately and today is no different. Classic 90’s game Simon the Sorcerer which was released for Amiga and PC has 20 years later been released for Android.
It’s a point and click adventure game just like Monkey Island and it also includes the subtle humour of that series. Simon the Sorcerer is a great game, or was on PC, it’s selling for $4.63 which is a bit rich but it does look pretty good. It’s available for a wide range of devices, anything running Android 2.2 and upwards can run it, but at 363MB it’s gonna be a big download so maybe connect to wifi.
