I'm currently in the middle of Quest for Glory I's EGA version. I really like this iteration of the AGI and the graphics are just gorgeous to me. Great artwork, use of the EGA palette, particularly in the night scenes, and great animation. I only ever played the fourth installment back in the day, so going back I can't help but feel like the first game is a bit more humble in scope, but it still exudes the same optimistic charm. However, the EGA version does have some gamebreaking bugs and Sierra only seems to provide patches for the VGA version.
I also started on this German shareware puzzle/adventure called Robot IV: Operation Extratax, released in 1993. I even went ahead and registered, as the original designers are still running a little web shop that allows you to pay with credit card or PayPal to immediatley claim your key to unlock the game. Conveniently they also provide the official hint book free of charge, which I'll very likely need to complete this one! Here's a plot synopsis:
After the third part of the Game of Robot series, the public has taken note of the hero's ability to endure adventures and solve dangerous tasks. That's why he is being sent on an official mission to investigate mysterious radio interferences caused by an old radar station.
While still focusing on the traditional style of complex puzzles, the scenario of Robot IV is more modern and technological than in earlier games.
Judging by the hint book, this game is massive and has about a hundred screens. It has you explore the radar station, collecting clues, keys and dozens of items. The puzzles mostly focus on exploration but apparently also involve things like configuring an in-world computer network... which makes sense, since afaik both creators are computer scientists.
As you can tell from the screenshots... graphics are pretty much designed to make sure people with red-green blindness sit this one out 😆
