Shame about the 'humour' Works pretty well apart from laggy subtitles. Awful jokes, sexist jibes to a female character right near the start. Just up to three part where he meets Um Bongo, an African character with big lips, where Simon makes jokes about immigration. The game really needs bringing up to date in this regard - I doubt it was barely seen as acceptable even at its time of release.
When did Simon become such a douche? Simon 1 was superb fun, Simon 2 however is awful. As mentioned in previous reviews, the character is utterly deplorable. He is downright cruel and obnoxious to everyone he meets. A prime example is the Morris dancers, the things he says to them are completely unnecessary - his superiority complex makes the game almost unplayable for me. Every time he sees a woman with a mop or at a desk he says "it's good to see a woman in her place." This was written in the 90s not the 40s.
The past is the future. Only ever played first one before. Still very Simon. Dated and occasionally freezes you out, but good, bizarre puzzling. Big adventure and well worth your time if this is your kind of point and click type of thing.
How do I arrange a refund? Downloaded this last night to play today after completing the first one. Game does not run on any graphics settings, press new game, brings up 'testing graphics' then black screens back to desktop. Running on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. Very dissapointed as it is great to play games of my youth again. I'm amazed how things can be sold with this kind of bug!
Paid for the full game & it doesn't work. I try to open it & I get a msg stating, "Testing graphics performance (first time only)" and then the app crashes and won't open. I downloaded this to my phone (android.) Tried restarting my phone, tried removing/reloading the game & received the same error msg. Submitted feedback thru the app & have not received a response. Very disappointed.
I remember the Simon games from back in the days of the much-loved Amiga, and it has been an absolute pleasure to find them here, slightly tweaked graphic wise and still having the same great feel/atmosphere about them, - what a brilliant and hilarious couple of games!
