Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire Download and Review

Nov 21, 2008




Quest for Glory II was released in 1990 by Sierra, a year after the successful Guest for Glory I. There is no VGA remake of this title, but its graphics is good enough to serve its purpose. The Adlib soundtracks with Arabian motive are also quite nice.



Quest for Glory II takes place in the fictional Arabian land called Shapeir. Directly following from the events of the first game, the newly-proclaimed Hero of Spielburg travels by flying carpet with his friends Abdulla Doo, Shameen and Shema to the desert city of Shapeir. The city is threatened by magical elementals, while the Emir Arus al-Din of Shapier's sister city Raseir is missing and his city fallen under tyranny.



Our mission in Quest for Glory II is to defeat the four elementals that threaten Shapeir and destroy the evil tyrannous wizard Ad Avis.



This is also the first game of the series where the hero may be awarded the title of Paladin. To achieve this status, the hero must act honorably throughout the game and Rakeesh, the liontaur will present to you his Paladin sword, Soulforge. Since the title of the Paladin is given at the end of the game, the Paladin abilities and Soulforge are only usable with characters that are imported into Quest for Glory III: Wages of War and later games.



The game follows the path of its predecessor with some distinctions in gameplay. It operates on a restricted time frame; the entire plot is concluded in 30 days. Many of the puzzles in the game do not appear or cannot be solved until certain days. This is also a part that I don't like as it is heavily scripted on a linear basis.



The player has the opportunity to advance his character and explore interesting side-quests. For example, a magic-user can earn the title of "Wizard" with the sponsorship of the wizard Erasmus, provided he can overcome a series of magical challenges and graduate from the Wizards Institute of Technocery. A fighter may earn a membership in the Eternal Order of Fighters. A thief may perform several thefts, including the running gag of stealing the Maltese Falcon.



Quest of Glory II is a good adventure game with Arabian settings, which I personally like it very much. You can download Quest for Glory II and its walkthrough here.
