There's something to be said about aiming to be the lowest... in some cases I think it can be harder to be the worst than be the best! biggrin.gif

I know what you mean. Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.
"Fear holds us and binds us and keeps us from growing... It kills a small piece of us each day. It holds us to what we know and keeps us from what's possible, and it's our worst enemy. Fear doesn't announce itself; it's disguised, and it's subtle. It's choosing the safe course; most of us feel we have 'rational' reasons to avoid taking risks... The brave man is not the one without fear, but the one who does what he must despite being afraid. To succeed, you must be willing to risk total failure; you must learn this."

lol.gif Don't you just hate it when that happens... scares you for a second there but then you realize you've still got that perfect record going. tongue.gif


I tried just for the heck of it to see how low a score I could get... wasn't too happy with it so I think I'll start over again when I get bored enough to have another go at it. Trouble is there are certain things you need to do to finish the game and those darn things give you points.

If I remember.... you must just fail to do anything that is not absolutely necessary.



You don't need to rescue Barnard.

You don't need to banish Baba Yaga.

Therefore you don't need to deal with the Kobold or Ogre, and if you don't need to get to Baba Yaga, you don't need to deal with the giant.



All you need is the dispel potion and to be able to fight thorugh or sneak into the fortress.

After all these years of trying to get as many points as possible (since 1989 biggrin.gif), it is very difficult to switch to trying to get next to nothing.

Why even now when I start a new game until I get my stats upped and skills.
I am finding Dragon Fire a bit more difficult, even in the fifth week (their's). Some how I can't generate the same enthusiasm as I had for the earlier four frown.gif

QFG5 definitely has a different feel to it. The gameplay, the atmosphere, setting... very different.

Back on topic with trying to shortcut through QFG1... I have officially abandoned going for the low points score. It just doesn't feel right. crazyeye2.gif
