Halite

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
If you are nostalgic for the good old days of text-based adventure games, then Halite will cure you of that soon enough. You play a "noted vampire hunter" who must save the hapless townsfolk from the depredations of a nasty bloodsucker and his legions of undead minions. Good luck. You'll spend more time struggling with the interface than fighting evil. Halite's parser only understands two-word noun-verb combinations, and not many of those. Consequently, exchanges such as this are common: You: "Talk villager." Halite: "What?" You: "Look villager." Halite: "What?" Besides the silent villager and the inevitable shopkeeper, various monsters dot the countryside. You have to fight them to gain money and experience. However, you can't save the game, and if you die, the game actually quits back to the desktop. Unbelievable. Halite comes with source code, in case you want to write your own adventure. If you do, write a better one than this.

Developer's Description

Halite is an adventure similar to others of the text games genre. You play the role of an adventure seeker, looking for a way to make a quick fortune.
