Little Big Adventure (also known as Relentless) is one of my all-time favourite games. It was perhaps the first game I completed fully as a kid – something I was immensely proud of. The music by Phillippe Vachey is pretty timeless, and I don’t know if I’ve done his theme justice here – but I hope I’ve given this gaming gem a good showing.
The whole world of Twinsun is quirky, and full of strange and wonderful characters and locations. The story centres around Twinsen, a young Quetch (a humanoid with a pony tail) who is locked up in an asylum thanks to his prophetic ‘end of the world’ dreams, by a ruthless regime lead by Dr Funfrock. Twinsen’s dreams are actually the prophecy of a Twinsun deity called Sindell, compelling Twinsen to seek her out and save Twinsun from the dastardly doings of Funfrock.
Goofy, but beautifully executed. The game is funny and heart-warming, with some interesting puzzles and dungeons – however the keyboard controls take some getting used to, and can lead to some frustrating attempts at isometric platforming. I remember many rage-quit moments during my time with LBA – but it’s all totally worth it to complete one of the finest games from the 90’s… at least in my own opinion.
