Welcome to Amulet Recovery, a short casual adventure game abut recovering a stolen amulet. Some Draklins (small demi-humans with a few rat and lizard features) have been causing trouble around the village of Spilark. Until now the trouble has mostly consisted of stealing food and small items of little value as well as acts of sabotage. Last night the Draklins managed to steal a fairly valuable amulet from the Comirands (a well to do family in Spilark). The Comirands have offered a nice reward to anyone who can recover the amulet from the Draklins. As a young child growing up in Spilark you learned the surrounding area well enough to know the location of the Draklin lair. As soon as you heard about the reward you quickly headed for the Draklin lair hoping to be the first one there to recover the amulet. You succeeded in reaching the lair first but in the process of rushing strait to the lair you forget to equip yourself with any gear other then the clothing you were wearing when you heard of the reward. Fortunately you have learned some things in your childhood that will allow you to make some improvised weapons and armor to help you recover the amulet. You have learned that various items can be altered and used as various types of weapons and armor. You know that bones can be used as weapons but tend to be brittle when used as such and will thus loose their ability to deal damage with use. You also know how to make a good shields and weapons out of furniture by breaking the furniture into pieces. Weapons created like this last much longer then bones and you also know how to use your fists even when you do not have weapons. You also learned how to use various animal pelts and hides for armor of varying degrees of protection. Your objective is simply to recover the stolen amulet any way possible. Using various items alone the way will help you to achieve this objective. Your vital stats are listed on the left side, messages are displayed at the top and various action menus will be displayed on the right. You can also interact with items by clicking on them as well as move from room to room by clicking on the arrows. Good luck on recovering the amulet and after you recover the amulet do not forget to replay the game to explore more areas of the dungeon you have not explored.

Not really all that great.

It feels a bit buggy. The retreat button doesn't work. The first bat fight seems very easy (I tried it twice) while subsequent battles take significantly longer. Also, I'm not 100% sure, but restarting the game, rather than reloading the page, apparently makes the fights harder.

But even if it worked properly, the game feels fundamentally flawed. The RNG allowed one bat fight to last me from 10 hit points down to zero, without landing a single blow. Weapons degrade in one or two hits, and fights can last 10 or more rounds. You also don't appear to have an inventory, so if you pick up a bone, I suppose it means you destroy your previous bone; considering it's about weapon degredation, the fact that you find three bones but you choose to use only one is pretty weird.

All the battles are very hard. You miss way more than you hit, and enemies get the first swing every time, for some reason. Plus, everything does significant damage. Bats will always take a chunk out of your health, rats will seriously wound you, and the orc-types slaughter me even if I have a big bone.

And the kicker is how long everything takes. An exchange of blows seems to take something like 8 seconds, for no real point. It could be instantaneous for all anyone cared; as long as we read it, why can't we skip it?

Just not fun, even if you fix the bugs.

The game is pretty slow and the retreat button isn't working. I'm using Firefox.

Poor execution. Bats take forever to kill and take away any enjoyment of exploring.
