Robin's Quest: A Legend Born

JohnBBuilt like an adventure game from the ground up, Robin's Quest: A Legend Born is a cure for the common hidden object game. The gorgeous release from Gogii Games puts you in the now-feminine shoes of Robin Hood as she escapes prison and starts doing what the legend is famous for: taking money from the rich Prince John and giving it back to the people!

robinsquest.jpgRobin's Quest has a unique structure that differs from most casual games. For starters, you don't follow the hero from point A to point B. Instead, you have a great amount of freedom to explore areas on your own, solving puzzles and completing scenes in whatever order you like. You receive meta-quests that continue as you move around, things like finding pieces of Friar Tuck's pardon letter. The papers can be found in several of the scenes early on, you just have to keep it in mind to watch for them. You're also hunting for wanted posters of yourself, collecting them and ripping them to shreds so the guards can't recognize you.

Hidden object scenes make an appearance in this adventure, but they're more of an afterthought and sit alongside a host of other well-integrated mini-games. In each one you're presented with several columns of item "cards", the top ones being the only ones visible. Find the listed item and that card vanishes, turning the next card on its face. When the scene is complete, you'll often keep several of the items in your inventory to use for later.

When it comes down to it, Robin's Quest: A Legend Born is all about gathering inventory items to complete puzzles throughout the game. You'll do a lot of exploring and a lot of backtracking, but that's what gives the game such a grand scope. More than once you'll encounter a blocked doorway, sealed hatch, or secret area you need a specific item to access. When you do, it's back to previous areas to do some more exploration.

robinsquest2.jpgAnalysis: Robin's Quest: A Legend Born is a very organic experience. While many games feel like they could have been churned out of a factory, this one comes across as a natural extension of telling an interactive story. You need to make it to the fields beyond town, and the baker's shop has a back door. To get through the gate, though, you need to distract the guards. Fortunately you overhear one of them talking about pie, so naturally you find the ingredients and set one in a nearby windowsill. The entire process is fun to complete and a joy to experience, something a game stamped out of a genre mold couldn't accomplish.

Robin's Quest not only plays smooth, it looks luscious as well. The countryside of 15th century England is flush with warm light and soft featured, buildings and people colored with smooth lines and gentle tones. You just want to jump in and wrap yourself in it like a fuzzy blanket.

Another aspect of Robin's Quest that makes it unique are special abilities earned when members of the Merry Men join your quest. Friar Tuck, for example, is tops at negotiation and can talk otherwise uncooperative non-player characters into helping you out. When you can use a special ability, a small menu will appear on the screen, allowing you to choose which skill to unleash. And yes, Robin's bow and arrow prowess is a special ability!

A unique design produces an original game that stands far out in front of the pack of genre clones. Robin's Quest: A Legend Born is grand storytelling and creative gaming wrapped into one irresistible package.

    • Below that you will find your current goal for the scene.

    • On the bottom of the screen is a link to the Menu and your Jar of Hints once you have retrieved it.

    • Once you begin to collect Pardons the number of pieces you have collected for a certain person will show below the Menu button.

    • Next are the available items in your Inventory which you can use to help you continue your Quest.

    • The Journal will show you your current Quest and the progress you have made so far.

    • You can see what Medals you have won, check the Bios of the people you've met, and view a map showing where you are at any point in time.

    Hints

    • You will collect your Hint Jar and a Medallion in the Jail Cell in a box that is delivered to you which you later find out is a gift from the Gypsy.

    • You will start out with 3 Hints which increase to 5 before you get to the Town Center.

    • Lady Nadja the Gypsy tell you to collect more Indonesian Fireflies on your Quest and that you need 5 for them to work together.

    • The only time I saw and Fireflies was when I once had to use a Hint so grabbed one that appeared to replace the Hints to 5 which apparently happens anyway without capturing a Firefly because I tested it with a different profile.

    • If you've done everything else in a scene, you can use a hint to reveal a Collectible.

    Hidden Object Scenes

    • The Hidden Object lists are random, but the Key Objects will always be the same and will go into your Inventory when you have completed the scene.

    • If for any reason you think you need to leave a Hidden Object scene, you can click on the "X" in the upper right hand corner or just click the background surrounding it.

    • Hidden Object scenes in some locations may not appear until you have taken care of another task there.

    Collectibles

    • There are 4 Collectibles in the game: Pardon Pieces, Gold Coins, Wanted Posters, and Fireflies.

    • There are 39 Pardon Pieces which will be marked in bright pink: 6 for Friar Tuck, 8 for Little John, 7 for Alan-A-Dale, 7 for Will Scarlett, and 11 for Thomas Hood.

    • The 38 Gold Coin Caches will be marked in red.

    • The 62 Wanted Posters for Robin will be marked in turquoise blue.

  • Robin Hood and the Merry Men

    • Robin Hood: The Hoods: Mr. and Mrs. Hood, descendents of Scottish nobility and widely liked in the town of Nottingham, lived happy and simple lives under the watchful eye of Prince John. Although never vocal, they were critics of Prince John and his heavy taxation. They vowed someday to make a difference, for the people of Nottingham and the people of England.

    • Friar Tuck: Friar Tuck: Friar Tuck and Robin Hood owe each other their lives. This mutual appreciation is the seed of a great friendship and the two are never far apart. Friar Tuck helps Robin Hood get in and out of places she needs to be with his irresistible voice of persuasion. After all, who can say no to a man of the cloth?

    • Little John: Little John: Robin Hood's closest friend, Little John is far from little. Standing at 6' 4'' tall and weighing 7 stone, he has the ability to intimidate the fiercest of foes. His weapon of choice is a bow staff although rarely used. It comes in most handy as a lever for moving or lifting heavy things. Little John is probably Robin Hood's most useful friend.

    • Will Scarlett: Will Scathlock, aka Will Scarlett, is a roguish young chap who is not only a snappy dresser, but an accomplished thief as well. It is said that no finer pickpocket exists in all of England. He is fun-loving and adventurous - and well-regarded by the women of Nottingham for his quick sense of humor and charisma.

    • Alan-a-Dale: Alan-A-Dale: Alan-A-Dale is a jokester and a light-hearted friend of Robin Hood. Robin is always happy to have Alan and his music around and finds that others find his music... enchanting. Alan-A-Dale is a master of distraction.

    • Maid Marion: Maid Marion: Lady Marion of Leaford is a ward of the court. An orphaned noblewoman, her feistiness and headstrong ways have gained her the favor of King Richard, who has taken her into his protection. She is quick of mind, and despite her young age, can use her charms to tame even the toughest of opponents.

    • If you choose the wrong one, you will get a red circle with a diagonal line through it and will need to choose again.

    • Sometimes there will be items in a scene that require a Special Ability that you don't have as yet so you can wait until you have completed the game and then go back to check that all locations have been cleared and pick up any items you could not get on your first visit.

    • Arrow

    Archery Competitions

    • The Town Billboard has town announcements on it. Check back here occasionally for wanted posters or if you'd like to try your hand at the town Archery Competitions.

    • The Town's Archery Competitions are optional mini-games to test your skills with a bow and arrow. Enter them if you'd like a quick break from Quests.

    • The optional Free-For-All Competitions cost money to enter, but you can earn a lot of gold if you do well in them.

    • There are 6 "Cups" you can win in the various competitions: Junior's Cup, Amateur's Cup, Pro Cup, Archer's Cup, Royal Cup, and The Master's Cup.

    • For each competition you will be given a total of 10 arrows with 10 targets to hit. The goal is to hit as many targets as you can because you will be awarded 10 additional gold coins for every Bulls eye.

    • Not all targets are stationary as some may swim or fly by or collapse and then stand up again.

    • If you don't like you how you are doing, you can restart the competition and you can also reject your award at the end and try again.

Just a note that (for the Mac at least) the link does not lead to a downloadable game. It leads to BigFishGames' GameManager, which you have to download and install before you can download the game. And the GameManager has default settings which let it report back to BFG something about you, nicely hidden under the 'About' tab.

[And here's a link to BFG's Privacy Policy where it lists exactly what type of information it may track and the limitations under which it will use that information. This is common practice for marketing purposes, so they can suggest other games to you that you may like based on the games you play. Note the contrast between, for example, the sharing of your information with 3rd parties, which BFG documents that they will not do, but in Steam's Privacy Policy it says they may share your information with 3rd parties. It's important to read a site's privacy policy before signing up for anything. -Jay]

I might believe this recasting as a sincere subversion of gender roles, rather than the formulaic factory smell of the Games For Girls genre, if and only if Robin falls in love with Maid Marian.

Robin's Quest: A Legend Born Walkthrough

General Tips and Information

  • Once the arrow hits the tree you will be at the Main Menu where you can choose a profile and select your options, start the game or exit it.

  • Graphic Options include settings for full screen versus windowed, auto pause, and a custom cursor.

  • Audio settings include volume for sound effects, music and dialogue.

  • The game has no timer or click penalty and saves itself automatically.

  • Navigation

    • You will be collecting Gold Coins throughout the game for use at various times.

    • The Gold Coins will usually require you to move something or use an Ability in order to get them.

    • Your current availability of coins is shown in the upper left corner of the scene.

    • Below that you will find your current goal for the scene.

    • On the bottom of the screen is a link to the Menu and your Jar of Hints once you have retrieved it.

    • Once you begin to collect Pardons the number of pieces you have collected for a certain person will show below the Menu button.

    • Next are the available items in your Inventory which you can use to help you continue your Quest.

    • The Journal will show you your current Quest and the progress you have made so far.

    • You can see what Medals you have won, check the Bios of the people you've met, and view a map showing where you are at any point in time.

    • Robin is in the lower right corner and will sometimes have information for you.

    • Sparkles indicate you need to take a look at a Hidden Object scene.

    • When you have completed all of the tasks in a particular location you will receive an "Area Clear" notice.

    • There are various mini games and puzzles throughout the game and if you wish, the Medallion will give you a chance to skip them once it opens up.

    • Screenshot

    Hints

    • You will collect your Hint Jar and a Medallion in the Jail Cell in a box that is delivered to you which you later find out is a gift from the Gypsy.

    • You will start out with 3 Hints which increase to 5 before you get to the Town Center.

    • Lady Nadja the Gypsy tell you to collect more Indonesian Fireflies on your Quest and that you need 5 for them to work together.

    • The only time I saw and Fireflies was when I once had to use a Hint so grabbed one that appeared to replace the Hints to 5 which apparently happens anyway without capturing a Firefly because I tested it with a different profile.

    • If you've done everything else in a scene, you can use a hint to reveal a Collectible.

    Hidden Object Scenes

    • The Hidden Object lists are random, but the Key Objects will always be the same and will go into your Inventory when you have completed the scene.

    • If for any reason you think you need to leave a Hidden Object scene, you can click on the "X" in the upper right hand corner or just click the background surrounding it.

    • Hidden Object scenes in some locations may not appear until you have taken care of another task there.

    Collectibles

    • There are 4 Collectibles in the game: Pardon Pieces, Gold Coins, Wanted Posters, and Fireflies.

    • There are 39 Pardon Pieces which will be marked in bright pink: 6 for Friar Tuck, 8 for Little John, 7 for Alan-A-Dale, 7 for Will Scarlett, and 11 for Thomas Hood.

    • The 38 Gold Coin Caches will be marked in red.

    • The 62 Wanted Posters for Robin will be marked in turquoise blue.

    • Fireflies are elusive white dots with a blue outline that float around and disappear so if you see one capture it quickly.

  • Robin Hood and the Merry Men

    • Robin Hood: The Hoods: Mr. and Mrs. Hood, descendents of Scottish nobility and widely liked in the town of Nottingham, lived happy and simple lives under the watchful eye of Prince John. Although never vocal, they were critics of Prince John and his heavy taxation. They vowed someday to make a difference, for the people of Nottingham and the people of England.

    • Friar Tuck: Friar Tuck: Friar Tuck and Robin Hood owe each other their lives. This mutual appreciation is the seed of a great friendship and the two are never far apart. Friar Tuck helps Robin Hood get in and out of places she needs to be with his irresistible voice of persuasion. After all, who can say no to a man of the cloth?

    • Little John: Little John: Robin Hood's closest friend, Little John is far from little. Standing at 6' 4'' tall and weighing 7 stone, he has the ability to intimidate the fiercest of foes. His weapon of choice is a bow staff although rarely used. It comes in most handy as a lever for moving or lifting heavy things. Little John is probably Robin Hood's most useful friend.

    • Will Scarlett: Will Scathlock, aka Will Scarlett, is a roguish young chap who is not only a snappy dresser, but an accomplished thief as well. It is said that no finer pickpocket exists in all of England. He is fun-loving and adventurous - and well-regarded by the women of Nottingham for his quick sense of humor and charisma.

    • Alan-a-Dale: Alan-A-Dale: Alan-A-Dale is a jokester and a light-hearted friend of Robin Hood. Robin is always happy to have Alan and his music around and finds that others find his music... enchanting. Alan-A-Dale is a master of distraction.

    • Maid Marion: Maid Marion: Lady Marion of Leaford is a ward of the court. An orphaned noblewoman, her feistiness and headstrong ways have gained her the favor of King Richard, who has taken her into his protection. She is quick of mind, and despite her young age, can use her charms to tame even the toughest of opponents.

    Special Abilities

    • There are 7 Special Abilities you will acquire along the way some of which are directly related to each of The Merry Men.

    • Click to see your Special Ability choices.

    • If you choose the wrong one, you will get a red circle with a diagonal line through it and will need to choose again.

    • Sometimes there will be items in a scene that require a Special Ability that you don't have as yet so you can wait until you have completed the game and then go back to check that all locations have been cleared and pick up any items you could not get on your first visit.

    • Arrow

    • This is a general purpose arrow used to hit targets and knock things down that are out of reach.

    • You will acquire this ability when you meet Johnny Goodshot in Sherwood Forest and he teaches you how to shoot a bow.

    • You will find these arrows in the Church Stairwell and acquire the ability to use them.

    • Music

    • Use Alan-A-Dale's music to distract or lull overworked people to sleep.

    • Charm

    • Little Maid Marion's irresistible charm can help her get in to the most off-limit places.

    • She will join The Merry Men before you go to the Castle.

    Archery Competitions

    • The Town Billboard has town announcements on it. Check back here occasionally for wanted posters or if you'd like to try your hand at the town Archery Competitions.

    • The Town's Archery Competitions are optional mini-games to test your skills with a bow and arrow. Enter them if you'd like a quick break from Quests.

    • The optional Free-For-All Competitions cost money to enter, but you can earn a lot of gold if you do well in them.

    • There are 6 "Cups" you can win in the various competitions: Junior's Cup, Amateur's Cup, Pro Cup, Archer's Cup, Royal Cup, and The Master's Cup.

    • For each competition you will be given a total of 10 arrows with 10 targets to hit. The goal is to hit as many targets as you can because you will be awarded 10 additional gold coins for every Bulls eye.

    • Not all targets are stationary as some may swim or fly by or collapse and then stand up again.

    • If you don't like you how you are doing, you can restart the competition and you can also reject your award at the end and try again.

Robin's Primary Quest
