The grapihcs are lovely. The gameplay is standard adventure. My only complaint is that yet again Ultimia engine. There are other engines out there for this type of game. I would really like to see one. The storyline is wonderful and as usual well written.

This game is an A.

Thank you very much! Are you... sorry I've forgotten your name... Are you the maker? the man... sorry still can't remember it!

I'm so pleased it's finally gotten here, though. Please do make more! I love the engine, and the story, and everything about it!

Is this just an installment in a new series, like what they did with the last series chopping it up into three episodes, or is it a complete game like with Aveyond 1 and 2?

It's the third installment in the Mel story line, and has some of the same history as the first few have.

The slave theme in the first ones carry through in this one, must admit I'm not enamoured by the fact that there are slave's everywhere. But it does add interest, even if i can't really see why there are so many slave's everywhere as they don't do much but get in the way. I really do hope there's a slave revolt along the way, and they stop being slaves.

But the town's and the empire are storylines from the first Aveyonds, as well as the magic training. It looks great! And i am enjoying it!

I'm sorry i have no idea at all. I absolutely hope it's not!

Mel should marry the prince, and have children, and their decendents could spawn a new prophesy

This is the last game in the Aveyond: Orbs of Magic series.

There will be more Aveyonds, just not featuring Mel & co

Hi Big Flounder!
I finished the all the others, and now have the darthrop prophesies.
The menu will not let me download previous games. Is that a tech error or just the way the game is set up?
Thanks again!

Was ready to start TDP, but the last game save at the end of TLO did not automatically install to TDP (It's on the desktop. What do I do?

If you want to continue from TLO, you need to select "new game" at the start. It will then ask you if you want to continue from a previous game.

Do you mean your saved game is on your desktop, or is TLO on your desktop? If the latter, you can always go back to your last game in TLO and save it again.

If you just have a saved game on your desktop, it needs to be saved in the correct folder for the new game to recognise it. It depends on the version of windows you're using, I think, but for me (on Vista) I can find my saved games by typing %appdata% in the address bar of My Computer and then finding a folder named Aveyond 3, subfolder Chapter 4. Move the saved game into there and it *should* work... hopefully.
