Zorro

Zorro is back! Fans of the Saturday morning hero will leap to their computers to join the fight against oppression.

This time the oppressed is a beautiful Senorita who has been captured by the Evil Sergeant Garcia. Naturally, you leap to her aid to rescue her from Garcia's evil clutches.

Leaping is something that this acrobatic hero does a lot of. He leaps from rooftop to rooftop, from rooftop to the ground and even from the ground to the rooftop! If that wasn't enough, you can climb along ceilings and even use a sofa as a trampoline.

However, you will need all of these uncanny skills to defeat Garcia's guards and solve the puzzles that will lead to the Senorita.

A quick flurry with your trusty blade will despatch most guards, leaving behind the famous Z, but the puzzles are a different matter. These involve juggling the various objects that you will find which will lead to more objects and those onto other puzzles.

Unfortunately, it will take me some time to solve all the problems and I fear that the beautiful Senorita will have died of old age by the time I finally get to her.

A superb game that will appeal to all swashbucklers.
