Rings of Medusa reviews

Zero Magazine Issue 7 (1990) - "I was so taken by the first two games I left myself hardly any time to play the third one: Rings of Medusa. It's also less my kind of game, being more to do with trading and strategy. You play the son of a King on an unknown planet, who must find five rings in order to defeat the goddess Medusa. You begin with next- to-nothing and in something like Ultima style, you move your figure across a landscape that looks more like medieval England than up Uranus way. You can enter (or try to) the various cities, as well as probably getting bashed up by a hostile army on the way.
I didn't spend nearly long enough with this game to get the most from it, but that's also because it isn't the kind of game that grabs me by the interface and demands that I uncover its innermost secrets. If you're into strategy games, I definitely recommend you give it a look, as it seems to have been put together with a great of attention to detail."
