Clyde's Adventure is one of those games that you either love or hate. It's a platformer by the developer of Hocus Pocus, which means that the goal is exploration and puzzle solving. Clyde is searching for treasure and must find every single gem in every level, but he uses energy when he walks, jumps, or falls from a great height. He has a wand that can temporarily remove some bricks and light bombs that can permanently destroy others. There are no enemies, so the challenge comes from avoiding traps and explosions, triggering invisible platforms and teleports, and finding the most efficient route before Clyde runs out of energy. There are helpful, and often humorous messages to help you along the way. It takes many attempts to master each level. This game can be extremely frustrating, but it's also very rewarding when you finally win. The graphics are some of the most impressive ever featured in an EGA game, and each level is full of glowing, glittering or flashing platforms and backgrounds. Featuring parallax scrolling, there is a foreground, background, and a deep background outside the windows, and a sort of fake fourth layer where birds can be seen disappearing behind the clouds. The gems are often arranged so that the sound effects play music as you collect them. A clever game for clever people. There are 2 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
Episode 1 - Lost Treasure of Tahookaboo
