The hobbit had graphics. You had to wait a minute for the picture to be drawn!

Works well on the speccy emulator I have

And the wait was almost better than the graphics themselves. I used to love going round to friends' houses to play the hobbit. Happy dayz.

Sure it had graphics but you missed my point, The Hobbit was a text adventure, meaning you played the game by entering commands, ie 'go north', 'pick up key', 'light lamp'

Whereas LOM wasn't that kind of game.

Well the hobbit wasn't known as a text adventure. Back in the early 80s you had text adventures which as the name suggests were just text and no graphics. Funny looking back at those now

The poster said he was reading the Hobbit, and wanted games like the Hobbit, as in the book, not the old game. Anyway, the problem is, pretty much every fantasy themed RPG ever made has some Tolkien influence. If you want massively epic adventure, The Quest is really the way to go, though its not free. Perhaps some more info on your preferences, like action vs. turn based, top down vs 1st person view, etc. would help narrow down the very wide range of possible suggestions.

Ah, the Hobbit. Great book, that. I'd say the game you're looking for is Aralon.

Thanks for helping . I just downloaded Order and Chaos . A 6.99 game for free is a pretty good deal . I will have to check next month about the IGN deal.
