Druid: Daemons Of The Mind - PC

An amusing image fills the cover of this game: that of a leering Alan Sugar reflected in the back of a giant spoon.

Appropriately, the game itself is a single character RPG-style adventure.

It looks very nice, because you move your little man through an isometric world by spinning his rendered form about in real-time 3D with your mouse.

We saw that!

Druid is quite goo-id (good). It uses RPG-style spells and stuff in the most manageable of ways: that of clicking corners of a little amulet. And the aim-mouse, slice-face combat is nice.

Otherwise there's nothing desperately novel; indeed the plot bored us so much we had to go into space.

And with the rendering comes the pricing: though there are 100 "rooms", you'll get through 10 in under an hour. Warning: this game may be small.
