Bored Of The Rings

For Tolkien lovers - who are trying to break the hobbit - this game will kill or cure. Not so much an adventure, more a mobile story, this game is thin on puzzles but full of hilarious text.

The Pythonesque dialogue and descriptions pour onto the screen oblivious of any attempt you make to solve anything. The result is a truly witty skit which will delight Tolkien fans but frustrate game players.

Early versions of the game have serious programming faults which is very frustrating but I'll chuckle over many of the game's witticisms for some time to come.
