Some contrived timing puzzles and occasional bugs hold back this otherwise enjoyable sequel.

About

The black horse of war looms over the land, with the ominous Lord Ironcrow at the reins. Because Pib's apprenticeship makes him vulnerable to the military draft, attaining wizardhood becomes imperative. (NOTE: Download link leads to the updated version) From ocean diving to winning at the races, this adventure explores the land of Willowbean that lies beyond the Wizard's hill. New characters range from the Book Wyrm, a dragon-like being with a taste for literature, to Seacookie, the puniest contender at the centaur races.

Very nice game, a bit too hard but I enjoyed it !

Seriously enjoyed this game. The music is still in my head as i type, extremely catchy, and the characters are all loveable. Except for a few puzzles which were pretty hard, the game was amazing, with enjoyeable situations and puzzles, with quite a bit of originality.

I have enjoyed this game more than many LucasArts ones, and i can say only Grim Fandango and Monkey Island beat it, because it seems like such a professional game because so much care seems to have gone into it.

The music, the characters and the dialogue all fantastic, with a bit of humour in there. And a female pirate to go with all this.

Bring on Apprentice III, if it is similar to this game it will be nothing short of amazing.

Excellent music, almost like orchestral compose. However, i was really annoyed by puzzles. It seems unnecessarily difficult to me. I don't like pixel hunting. I think few people could finish it without looking at walkthrough.

I caught a bug. When you try to talk Ollie repeatedly, the game crashes with an error: invalid loop number. I wouldn't expect a bug from the "best" :) I was very surprised

As a summary, the game deserves all awards it won except "Best Puzzle".
