Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Since I have already played the Game countless times on CD, I simply allow myself to write a Review. Story: The World of Earth's Heirs may be set in the Future, but it has the State of the Middle Ages. In this World, a long Time ago there were People who taught the Animals to speak. One learns that People disappeared from this World and left only some strange Buildings behind. Now there are anthropomorphic Animals in this World who do not know what People created and live at that time as they did in the Middle Ages. One himself plays the Fox Rif who is accused at a Funfair of having stolen the Storm ball. This Ball is used by the Animals to tell the Weather beforehand so that they know when to harvest. Fox Rif, who is naturally innocent, wants to procure the Ball again and so that he does not let it down and hidegs you capture his Girlfriend Rhene and Give him the Companions Okk from the Tribe of the Wedges and Eeah from the Tribe of the Moose. Together they go in search of the Storm ball. Gameplay: The whole Game is controlled exclusively with the Mouse from Start to Finish. Typical Point and Click Adventure, then. You click on the Places you want to run and click on things or People to interact with. There is also a Menu where you can choose different Actions such as "Go to, Look at or Take" and an Inventory where you can collect And connect items. You have a complete World where you have to travel to different Places to slowly solve puzzle Part by puzzle part. The nice thing about the Game is that while the Puzzles are tricky, you can't get playful. At some Point you get on and on, besides, every Puzzle is logical. You always find Hints about the People back then, like Batteries that appear Spanish to the Figures and so on. Plus, the Game has lovingly designed Characters and a Variety of Conversations. The whole Game is very Varied. You always experience something new, there are hardly any Quest Repetitions and if then very successful and not boring. Only Side Missions are hardly available from time to time, and from time to time you can accomplish a small, very simple Task that has nothing to do with the Main Quest, but the essential Part is really limited to the Main Quest. But This always remains exciting and, above all, alternating. Sometimes you have to find objects through a Labyrinth, sometimes and put them together and also think a lot of Logical. You always want to keep going. Graphic: Well, the Game is developed from 1994 for DOS, so the Graphics are not a Miracle graphic. But I find them very beautiful and lovingly designed. About a Mix of Cartoon and Pixel Animations. Beautifully fluid and really nice to look at. Sound & Music: The Music is classical 8-bit Music. But nice Topics. They are not annoying, as is often the Case with such Music, on the Contrary, you feel closer to the Game and have the Feeling of knowing the Melodies somewhere ago. The Sound is also something very nice in the Game. He's not always at the same Volume from Start to Finish. If you Stand at a Waterfall, you hardly hear what the Characters are saying, but you can only hear a few Birds chirping in a calm Forest. The spoken is also nicely emphasized and very coherent in both the English and the German Versions. Replayability: Definitely! Maybe not immediately but in the Long run 100 per each. The whole Game is relatively long and it's worth playing through more than once. You can focus more on the loving Details and Design of several Games. Besides, the Story that emerges throughout the game is really beautiful and engaging. You cheer up when you catch the Perpetrator and the End is also very nice. Total/Conclusion: Beautiful Game, beautifully designed Places and characters, Great Story and Lots of Fun! I can honestly say that today there are hardly any games created with so much Attention to Detail. There are Little Things to be found everywhere and the Game itself has great Features that are hard to find today. Definitely worth being played, at least once. A Negative Point would simply be that sometimes it takes a little long time to solve certain Puzzles. You can't play your way into Dead ends, but some Puzzles require a lot of Logic and sometimes you have to try around. However, This lays down over the Course of the Game.
