Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood Sierra On-Line 1991

This second and final game in the Conquests series is another impressive historical adventure. This time it features VGA graphics and uses Sierra's standard icon-driven interface first seen in King's Quest V. The player assumes the role of the legendary Robin Hood in his efforts to restore King Richard I to the throne of England. To do so, he must collect enough money to pay the king's ransom. The game keeps track of the size of Robin's band, with a small number of opportunities to recruit new members, and a few chances to get them killed. There are various opportunities to launch raiding missions throughout the game, and having a sufficiently large band as well as using an effective strategy are necessary to succeed. Depending on how well the player does, there are a number of endings, ranging from Robin being hanged for his crimes, to being knighted and getting married to Maid Marian. Many puzzles have multiple solutions with varying implications - some more desirable than others. The detailed video-captured animation is fluid and varied and most characters you meet have unique animated portraits. A planned MPC version of the game would have had speech but the project was canceled due to budget problems. Only a non-interactive demo was released.
