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.

Developer's Description

Yipe III for Windows is finally here. It is a role-playing game with a humorous twist. The town of Yipe is a peaceful burg, located high up in the mountains. Unfortunately, the surrounding world is not always friendly. In the landscape surrounding Yipe there are many caves to explore. In the past few months, evil monsters have started coming up from the caves and attacking the citizens of Yipe. Also, the king's rare stamp collection was stolen, and the monarch thinks that there may be a link between his missing stamps and the sudden increase in monster attacks. Oh, and the king also mentions that his daughters have vanished, and he's not sure if they've been kidnapped or if they simply ran away from home. In any case, great treasure awaits you if you can find them and return them to Yipe. Start saving the town of Yipe today.
