Two things:

1) This is a great, passionate review. Great job, fleinn!

2) I noticed that this hasn't been added to the list of featured reviews yet, though it won the last RotW.

:D haha. Thanks. I don't know.. I played this game the first time at a friend's house.. His brother had an a500 (with extra bogo-ram), and we stole some time with it. I'm not entirely sure how old I was, but I remember being physically shaken when that monster in the swamp attacked.

Ten years later or something like that, I dug up my own A500 from a closet.. pulled out the floppy-discs, found Moonstone.. Booted it up, smiled. Whacked some ratmen. And then the same damned monster scared the crap out of me.

So yeah.. it's a game that made a real impression on me. But it's also an extremely well made game. Not just the graphics and the sound-effects, but the way the design succeeds in using the abstractions to tell a story. Like shadow-theatre, or Chinese puppets for example - they're extremely expressive in spite of (and sometimes because of) the limited breadth of expression.
