fun retro fantasy adventure with a unique musical emphasis

this adventure released in 1990 was one i never got to play when i was younger. it was fun to play it now. a nicely built—albeit rather short—fantasy story. the main difference with this game is you don’t pick up any objects at all. instead, you manipulate your surroundings and solve puzzles by learning and casting 4-note “threads” which you learn throughout the game. i quite liked the music-based emphasis. the graphics are obviously dated, but well conceived. voice acting was ok. music was kinda sparse, but still ok. overall, a rewarding retro adventure gaming experience.
