Editors' Review

+
This lo-fi adventure quest, though sometimes repetitive, is a nice antidote to the complicated bombast of many popular games. Despite the game's middling visuals, the knight's mission to recover a stolen royal stamp collection becomes oddly compelling. Cave mazes, battles, and rewards await you on your path, and gameplay is simple enough--no arcane keyboard contortions are required. What's more, combat is essentially opt-in, since creatures are more often an obstacle between you and the gold than they are an offensive threat. The treasures do, however, allow your knight to return to the village to buy food for his flagging health or additional armor. Prices are high, however, and the repeating cycle of heading out to bruising battle to collect the gold you need to return to the village to repair and recuperate eventually inspires a certain existential ennui. Though probably most satisfying for kids or gaming beginners, Yipe III delivers plenty of fun to anyone looking for a simple afternoon distraction.

"Excellent game, very creative and humorous, awesome!"

April 23, 2006  |  By Zephyr Kage

 |  Version: Yipe III 1.16

Pros

This game is very humorous, addictive, creative, and just plain awesome. I could spend hours playing it, even if I haven't registered. I could just keep leveling up!

Cons

Having to send money to the states (I'm Canadian) to register. It's very cheap and that doesn't bug me, but I have to figure out the currency changes and prepare the mail ands stuff and I'm much too lazy to do all that.

"Absolutely fun and addicting"

April 14, 2006  |  By leilanibz

 |  Version: Yipe III 1.16

Pros

I love the storyline, the different take on weapons (a thumbtack, a folding chair, wet mittens as gauntlets), and just about everything else about this game. I was a devout Castle of the Winds player in college, and this game reminds me of it, only more fun, less creepy and gorey. A definite keeper.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind... :-)

"I love this game!!!"

October 05, 2005  |  By misschif83

 |  Version: Yipe III 1.16

Pros

I love the humor in this game (I mean, where else can you find bunnies that can kill you...besides Monty Python). I like the style. It's simple, so I can easily use it. It's just an all around great game.

"cool game, but why pay?"

 |  Version: Yipe III 1.16

Summary

nice game here! definitely fun for all, except i find it a little too easy to do everything in the unregistered version, and i would consider registering if i wasn't sending money to the states!
other than that, sweet game, keep up the good work!

"enjoyable quest game in the vein of Dragon Warrior for NES"

July 28, 2004  |  By taoist

 |  Version: Yipe III 1.16

Summary

sure, you COULD try to find a decent NES emu(lator) for your PC, then try to find Dragon Warrior. . .but why bother when Yipe! III is right here for download from CNET? a magnificent timekiller with old-school system requirements. well worth the meager asking price to move beyond the ample shareware version offered. here's to unending Yipe! sequels!!!
