AGS Panel Rating

A solid adventure game with a pleasing art style and a wonderful soundtrack. The deluxe version, however, is even better!

Pick of the Month

Aug 2003

Pumaman: A new arrival lately, which has been highly acclaimed by players so far. A Lucasartsy take on a King's Quest 3 type game, the only complaint you'll have is that Apprentice is too short.

Mortimer "Pib" Pibsworth wanted to become a magician for as long as he can remember. He even sweeps floors for one. But today, something is different... EDIT: The download link goes to the UPDATED version of Apprentice. (Which has many bug fixes and a secret bonus puzzle.)

Cute and good looking game, that reminds of the spirit of a good King's Quest... If it was doable in 30 minutes.

The puzzles are somewhat challenging for the scale of the environement, but you shouldn't spend too much time wondering what to do. I've liked it!

The graphics were great. The story was fair, and the puzzles were difficult but logical.

I'm new to the community. I honestly expected a much longer adventure, but this was marvelously done. I couldn't have asked for a better hour long adventure game.

I was very impressed with the humor! Makes me kind of jealous...maybe you wouldn't mind helping me out once my game is near completion in bulking out the script.

Two complaints-- navigating up and down the hill was next to impossible, and while the interface was very innovative, it was a hindrance. I found myself constantly right-clicking, hoping to change my verb faster. Also, the book inventory was interesting, but rather a hindrance as well, having to click the next button several times.

But good job! I hope my first game will be nearly this entertaining! (I'm definitely going for length, so hopefully the quality will come close to yours!)

The plot did not get to me, but Oh my gosh! what a way of using pixels

Good plot, clever puzzles, nice sprites and backgrounds.

It could use some more jokes: the art style is light and clear, some items and puzzles are funny but the dialogs are a bit serious.

There is a minor bug (walking in the mountain) but overall, I think it is a really good game.
