Remember Shadowgate? A little point and click adventure for NES that won a coveted 'Nester' Award for 'Most Innovative Game'. I played this game at the age of six and got considerable help from my Junior High School brother's friend that owned the game. I found it used a few months back and couldn't get past the first room! It wasn't until last night I happened to check GameFAQS and found out you had to OPEN the skull. I played it for like 40 minutes last night but had to constantly run back to the computer for hints. I thought to myself 'How could people have played this without any help whatsoever?' I mean 70% of the stuff in game you make guesses on and you die a LOT. Is there anybody that beat this game back in the day without any outside help. If so, I congratulate you. Let's remember Shadowgate, a terribly difficult though entertaining game.
