Aye, matey!!!

Way to go, Karlok! Thumbs Up

To tell you the truth, I’m quite proud of myself.  Cool

Too right Thumbs Up - you’d have to know the game as there are no screenshots anywhere that I could find apart from the few on Moby Games. 

@zobraks - do you have the game? I’m curious to see the full screenshots as also the quality seems to be very good.

The game is truly awful.  I remember picking it up at the local Fry’s Electronics store way back in the day, as it was an ‘adventure’ game I had never heard of before.  Bad bad bad.  A PC Gaming mag reviewed it I remember and gave it one of the lowest scores possible ha ha.  In my book, it shares the same fate as ‘Who’s Fat Lou?’ in obscure games that deserve to stay obscure.

By the way, Amazon shows a used copy for sale at $20 if any masochist is interested

for the info, Lakerz!

Looks like one less game for me to play.


And so… 14 years have gone by since I’ve joined this joint.

Steve Ramsey agrees with you. He gave it 1 star in his 2003 review:

You played Who’s Fat Lou, so you should definiteley try your hand at Search for the Golden Dolphin too. Innocent

Yeah, I remember… didn’t know what to make of you at first, but that didn’t last long.  Cool

It also didn’t take us long to start bickering and it keeps going on up to the present.

I remember the very first time I annoyed you. I posted a little strip there which seems to be lost now due to ImageShack being the way it is, but I found it in murky depths of my vast archives.
Here it is (for the sentimental reasons & for good all times sake):

I’ll have a guess at Randal’s Monday. I’m pretty sure it’s wrong but it’s the only game that came to mind with a similar art style & those thick black lines.  Smile

Yep you’re right, it’s not Randal’s Monday.  Cool

Here’s another pic:

I don’t recognise the screenshot from Edna & Harvey: The Breakout but I’ll guess it anyway.  Smile

Sorry not it. I believe it’s made by a French team.

That was in 2010. Do you honestly believe that you never annoyed me in the first five years of your presence in AG? Tongue

I’d forgotten about that particular pic and my reaction. Went back just now because you mentioned it, it’s still the best CP crawlthrough ever. We had lots of fun.

Never heard of it, let alone saw a screenshot from it.

That’s no excuse. You still could have guessed it. It’s in a subterranean cave, so you only really had to guess two letters. How much easier do you want?

Can’t get easier than that.
I didn’t try to excuse myself, just stated a fact.

Well, I’ve registered way back in 2005, but I didn’t post since November of 2009. Here‘s the start of our BEAUTIFUL relationship, Louie Karlok.

Oddly enough it looks GREAT to me now. Back in 2010 I’d grade it (only) A+.

P.S. Look how Origami provoked/incited TUBMC.
We made a deal in couple of posts. Those were the days.
