The original Repton game was immediately acclaimed as a
refreshingly new concept: a game requiring dexterity to complete
the arcade-style elements and clear logical thinking to solve
the strategic puzzles. Repton
involved retrieving treasure from
cleverly constructed traps of falling rocks whilst avoiding
fearsome monsters. Repton 2
was larger and far more challenging,
introducing transporters, skulls and haunting spirits.
Repton 3 introduced a
character editor and screen designer for the
first time along with ticking time-bombs, golden crowns and
insidiously growing fungus.
At long last, Retro Software proudly presents the missing
masterpiece that was originally written as a direct, traditional
sequel to Repton 3 -
Repton: The Lost Realms. Completely rewritten
and improved, the game features 24 new screens that will delight
and confuse both beginners and hardened Repton addicts alike. They
include deceptively pretty balloons that float upwards, multiple
time-bombs on each level, doors which bar your way until they are
dissolved with the mysterious "absorbalene" and, most perplexing
of all, two kinds of spirits: clockwise and anti-clockwise!
Perhaps it's just as well Repton can now freeze pursuing monsters
with an ice crystal!
The game boasts larger levels than Repton
3 that can contain more
transporters and monsters. It also includes a very flexible level
editor and character editor. You decide how fast the fungus should
grow, how long monsters should stay frozen, or whether a map is
available on a level. Can you conquer Repton's Lost Realms?
