Retardo and the Iron Golem
In Retardo and the Iron Golem, the King of Moronia has sent Retardo on a mission to defeat the Iron Golem and restore peace to the kingdom. In return he is promised the hand of the Princess of Moronia. It's up to you to ensure that he accomplishes his mission safely.
Using the mouse, click on items at the appropriate times and in sequence to get Retardo through each scene. Some scenes will require you to find a few objects and place them where they need to be before progress can be made. Some scenes will require you to be quick in your pointing and your clicking. Collect hidden mushrooms for bonus timer score at the end of the game.
Analysis: Although I can do without the blood and the gore, I really like these little point-and-clicks that Robin is making. They are gorgeously detailed, charmingly animated, and brought to life with lush sound effects. The puzzles are not altogether difficult, but it will take you a few times to work out each scene. Thankfully, you're never set back very far each time you fail. Bite sized and filling.
Note: We at JIG do not approve of the use of the word "retard" in this game. Indeed, we feel it was an unfortunate choice. That along with the cartoon violence, blood and gore that is present indicates that this is one game to keep away from the little, more impressionable, ones.
