Caren and the Tangled Tentacles

I’ve got this game when I backed the Commodore 64: A Visual Compendium book. That was actually the 1.3 version that came on a nicely decorated USB stick in credit card format. I only started playing the game when I later got an Easy Flash 3 cartridge and that version was free to download. Recently, I got my Turbo Chameleon 64 V2 setup and I put the 2018 Thank You Edition on it. And on this cold and windy Sunday afternoon I completed it. Sadly the game is a bit too short. But since I don’t like overlong adventure games (I find most of them too long), it’s not that bad.

I loved the music and the graphics have some nice details. For instance the reflection in the polished floors. I never thought that the tangled tentacles would be what the are, because of the references to other classic games (dr. Fred for instance).
