Gnome Ranger reviews

"Gnome Ranger has improved on Knight Orc in the puzzle stakes (more logical and enjoyable), the atmosphere (more enjoyable and less confusing), the plot (more comprehensible), and the characters (more interesting). You can't ask for much more than that, except the perhaps Level 9's next game could give us more of the same. It would be good to see a slightly bigger game, in terms of locations and puzzles, but for the time being this will do gnicely." - ACE Magazine (1987)
