Game Description They say that thievery is the best form of flattery. Hopefully Al Lowe and Sierra see it that way at least. This is a point and click SCI remake of Sierra's 1987 AGI release of Disney's The Black Cauldron.

As Taran, young assistant pig-keeper of Caer Dallben, you are called upon to save your favorite pig Hen Wen which ultimately leads to you, hopefully, saving the world from the evil of the evil Horned King.

A vast improvement from the original as opposed to the one-word parser commands that made this game difficult to approach.

I agree that the playability is vastly improved over Sierra's original AGI version, but since the graphics are sierras, as well the story, it's hard to judge as for those qualities. I guess in the end, neither the story nor graphics got messed up. A crappy Sierra game but a solid SCI game.
