Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Thursday 27 November 2014
I couldn’t finish puzzle game and clickfest Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail (1996). Thanks, stupid bug!
The mini games I did play were not very interesting. Childish Simon again. But it must be said that Tetris is more fun with dead plague victims screaming “I’m not dead! I feel fine! ” It’s clicking around and being rewarded with Monty Python’s humor that makes the game worth playing.
The Black Knight is one of my favorite scenes. Just a flesh wound. I’ve had worse!
Was thinking of the developer, 7th Level, not too long ago. Their titles were really a cut above the rest in presentation - high resolution and full motion video that seamlessly blended with the backgrounds. Less so seamless in retrospect.
A lot of these titles seemed to be more about the technological wow factor than gameplay or story. They embraced this more so in Monty Python’s Complete Waste of Time, which it was. I had fun.
Just a flesh wound. I’ve had worse!
Absolutely brilliant scene!
Careful in that screenshot, though, he could bite your legs off. Or worse: bleed on you…

Monty Python & The Quest for the Holy Grail was the second AG I’ve ever played (right to the end, haven’t come across any bug) and I fondly remember it.
I specially loved the questionnaire at the start of the game and the Catch the Cow minigame. I still play it from time to time.
The human race is doomed to progress.
Brilliant movie and scene. I really need to dig up that movie and watch it again.
