A 23-year-old Sony PlayStation Game by Psygnosis

Not emulated in MAME


Terry Pratchett's Discworld © 1995 Psygnosis, Ltd.

Clearly, Discworld on PlayStation is a must-have title for Terry Pratchett fans, but the humour and sheer visual and aural panache with which the gameplay is delivered means that it will appeal to any fan of graphical adventures.

All the usual fantasy gaming cliches turned upside down in a melee of cartoon chaos, and crazy puzzles. The huge playing environment encompasses 4 epic quests which will take at least 100 hours to complete. Incredible cinematic effects - including fades, pans and close-ups - enhance the cartoony graphics. On the sound front voices are provided by the late Jon Pertwee, Eric Idle and Tony Robinson.
