- Space quest 2 - Vohauls revenge -

Space quest II - chapter II Vohaul's revenge is a direct sequel. Roger Wilco was the hero of the previous Space Quest but you'd think after saving the universe you would get ahead in life but not Roger. Roger is once again back at his old job, being a janitor at a space station. Sludge Vohaul was defeated but this time he's back with another scheme, to invest the planet with door-to-door life insurance salesmen. Roger might once again get in his way so you are captured right at the beginning of the game and taken to the planet Labion to do hard labor. Rogers (bad) luck crashes the transporter he's in though and he escapes but now he must stop Vohauls plan once more.

Space quest 2 starts at the space station but you quickly get captured and just as quickly manage to escape by sheer luck. The planet Labion harbors plenty of dangers like poisonous plants, maneating plants and gigantic apes trying to eat you. Some of these dangers can be put to good use though like the poisonous plant which you can use to disable one of your captors. Once you escape planet Labion you still have to stop Vohaul and you go directly to his sludge asteroid. Here you can stop Vohaul once and for all (maybe).

The game plays pretty much like most early Sierra adventure games, you can walk around using the arrow keys or the mouse but actions have to be typed in. There are tons of ways to die and many puzzles directly involve trying to get around these dangers, but to get around some you have to get into danger first! Some cases require you to do things within a time limit like hiding from guards or do some pixelperfect actions like the maneating plant maze. As with all Space Quest games it's somewhat of a thing to find all the ways you can end the game prematurely which can be fun.

Early Sierra adventures have their share of fans but I know plenty of people who dislike them as well. The easy deaths throughout the game can be really annoying so save often if you don't like to go back too much. What sets the Space Quest series apart is the humor which granted is a bit weird sometimes but it is probably my favorite Sierra adventure series. To me any Space Quest game is a mustplay for adventure fans.

Overal rating: 7.5/10

This game was released for many different systems here are some notes:

Graphically identical to the others, sound and music is better though.

Graphically identical to the others, loading is rather slow like the amiga.

This has the classic pc beeper sounds which are rather annoying. It is still for sale so it's not available here.
Others This version is not available.
