In 1987, Opera Soft released ' The abbey of crime ' also known as ' La abadía del crimen ', which was regarded as one of the best video games for the 8bit system such as the Amstrad 6128, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC 464 and MSX. It had a high level of detail, a decent plot, good mapping, sound and much more which made it a worth while game to collect. It's just a shame it was never officially released outside of Spain. But as a special treat and a heads up by Program Bytes 48k, you can now download ' The Abbey of Crime Extensum ', which is a NEW remake of La abadía del crimen, as a Windows, Mac OS X and Linux version, with enhanced detail and lots of bugs fixed
In this game you play as a Franciscan monk, Fray William of Occam and his young novice Adso of Melk on a quest to discover the perpetrator of a series of murders in a Benedictine abbey. The entire game is played in an isometric 3D environment, with a series of objects that has to be collected in order to successfully complete the game. As for me I remember playing this game years ago as a short test and although it's a lovely game to look at, you may find the controls hard to master.
