What they thought about it

 "If The Pawn is to be the first of a series, and the series is produced with no alterations to text or parser for the more popular micros, then it will not be long before the standard of software demanded by adventure players will rocket. No longer will it be viable to knock out a quick cheap-and-nasty on The Quill. People will be more willing to pay about £20 for something to which they will thrill rather than waste a fiver on a sparse screen offering little for the imagination to bite on. The Pawn is so good that to compare it in the same category as many of the adventures currently on the market is to do it a gross injustice. Good luck to Magnetic Scrolls and Rainbird in their bid to raise standards. They deserve it." - CVG Magazine (1986)
