The Discworld games are based on 17 Terry Pratchett books known quite simply as  Discworld. Although you don't need to have read the books to play the games, I think that it may make some of the problem solving a little easier - particularly if you can understand Terry's rather bizarre logic!

The main character in Discworld 1 and 2 is Rincewind, an incompetent wizard. Eric Idle provides the voice for Rincewind and they couldn't have picked a better person for the job. In the first game you have to rid Ankh-Morpork of a rather nasty dragon that has decided to terrorise the city and in Discworld 2, Death has gone missing and Rincewind has to find him.

Discworld Noir was the 3rd game in the series but does not feature Rincewind. You play the part of a Private Investigator called Lewton who walks the streets of Ankh-Morpork solving murders. The game does have a sinister feel about it as it is played in a very dark setting which does make it hard to find objects, but this is how it was intended to be. I kept wanting to turn the brightness up on my monitor so I could see what was going on! It is completely different to the first 2 games but equally as good.

I first played Discworld 1 on the Playstation and was hooked straight away! I could not, however, play the game without cheating as I just couldn't complete some of the bizarre things necessary to move on to the next stage! Perhaps my logic just wasn't up to it but some things were so unrelated that you can never imagine that they were important when combined together.

I completed Discworld 2 on the PC (again having to cheat a lot) and and have yet to finish Discworld Noir.
