This will be my first attempt in making LP, so it will probably be as good as some I've read here. But the codex database really needs this game for the obvious reason. And so I am here, playing for the first time Al-Qadim.

Talking about short intro.

Since I don't know what will I encounter I'm playing it safe and remember that normal in the 90's was normal. The Name is known to everyone, I presume.

I wonder If I'll met some of those so called genie lords. Could be interesting encounter. Anyway, it's time to act.
You can use mouse or keyboard to move. I prefer the first one since it's more smooth and easy to navigate. The right button is used to move, the left to attack.

There are many traps in this labirynth, but I think it's not difficult. Even if you aren't quick enough and get teleported to the beginning by some kind of magical fog, you can finally make it.

Those things on the ground are some kind of living creatures, reminds me of a Tremors movie. The green fires can be killed.

Finding the path through the hidden squares.

Better be careful, you can easily loose most of the health if you aren't careful.

Instead of smashing vases I've chosen the middle pistil and morphed into a parrot. After a short fly on the other side the spell wears off.

RG5OJ2P.png


Avalanche problem, you will be hit some times even if you are quick.

KhLKF3y.png


Finally over, we can claim the treasure.

Andhaira is on 3 level now and has some helpful potions with him. Moving on the magic carpet refills our health bar. We are moving onward.

I tried this game a few years ago, but once the tutorial was over, it quickly became way too hard for me.

Al-Qadim is a pretty cool setting, though I wish its magic didn't rely so heavily on the classical four elements.

Arabian Nights, ftw. This and Kara-Tur are the only AD&D-era campaign settings I haven't gamed under (cRPG or PnP).

It's actually a really good little Zelda-like. Gameplay is fairly banal, but it has some decent push-blocks-onto-pressure-plates puzzles and a gorgeous and original setting.

One piece of advice though: Keep multiple save games. Seriously. Do this. Not because of bugs, but because there is at least one point in the game where you can game over yourself instantly and if you saved just before that point, you have wasted your weekend.

Part 2 : Reunion.

We are teleported into the desert and right after that we are welcomed.

KTXwP2r.png


The game lacks portraits of characters. Touche. I choose the first option.

We meet our father.

A sword with the upgrades. Well, it isn't double edged katana but it will suffice in our journey.

aFoqnSE.png


g5zxuto.png


Quick look at our stats. Very balanced, J. Sawyer approves this.

aKdgdPV.png


Inventory is simple, I like that. Time to move.

F36aKJy.png


First I will visit my brother's house. There is nothing to take, just a little letter. Time to investigate the rest of the city.

WI0lWOU.png


The camel has some groovy moves right there. Let's take a look at the inn.

A men, or a women, it's hard to tell at first.

What I've learned easily thanks to this conversation is 1) to be polite, it gives you always more information about the plot 2) We have a family djin called Muliban. I wonder why and what is his purpose.

9qnwAtP.png


Another room, but nothing interesting. Better to move out.

Weapon Master Zubakon. He will help us to gain new moves once we level enough. Sparring is also included. Right now we better move.

nAdNqWP.png


We are at Qadi's office.

No matter what you take, it will always end up the same way. Whatever, I'll need more XP, time for some quests!

He is my older brother, of course nothing is wrong !

edF2OkW.png

Badmouthing the sister, naughty boy.

Endure, and in enduring grow stronger.

Ah, so the djin protects our family interests and gives good winds to our ships.

That was very hard. First invisible wall is opposite the door that we've entered. The second is on the right. It's probably the mini-tutorial for new puzzles that will show up. Unfortunatelly there is no XP/prize for doing this.

Mages working day and night fixing the vases. That's all they can do. Let's go the barracks.

Oh, sorry, didn't want to disturb you. Whatever you've been doing alone half naked it's fine by me.

pgUjblm.png


JrJKSMq.png


Oasis eh, my quest sense is tingling.

E2Cq56N.png


Typical semite, no "Welcome, it's good to see you back". Whatever, I've got more than enough, I repay the debt. Sweet, XP points for this one.

wl3Yl37.png


A shop where you can only buy healing potions. Why no chicken, bananas and green pea ?

oF6u58g.png


A storeroom and nothing to take ? I want to loot barrels and sacks of wheat dammit !

Revisitating our sister.

The scimitar is good in melee 1on1 duels but this sling will be better for group of enemies.

Andhaira, trying to deduct what's a genie curse, continued his town inspection.

Come to think of it, at first it looked to me more like a prison than the inn :lol:.

It's actually a really good little Zelda-like. Gameplay is fairly banal, but it has some decent push-blocks-onto-pressure-plates puzzles and a gorgeous and original setting.

One piece of advice though: Keep multiple save games. Seriously. Do this. Not because of bugs, but because there is at least one point in the game where you can game over yourself instantly and if you saved just before that point, you have wasted your weekend.

I'll be careful. If anything happens, then tough luck :negative:.

Part 3 : The First Contact

We stopped our journey in our sister's house, bet there is so much houses to visit.

bXZNPVH.png


Wassabs are the rival family in town. I guess stepping uninvited made a bad impression on them. But let them try stop us ! We must finally complete the quest with the treaty.

g1kKGt5.png


I'm starting to feel like some official in the middle east trying to do my work here. Whatever, no persuade/intimidate dialogues battles in game. Let's go to the temple for some spiritual enlightment.

CW41lpP.png


We donate 5 gold coins, it doesn't matter how much you give, the xp reward is the same.

MtJRqFi.png


:troll:. Nothing more to do here. Let's see a friendly merchant Babazar.

A5NR5hv.png

GagT3Fi.png


5ibdmBr.png


What most RPG's taught me, that is never wise to ask for the money before making the quest. Let's be benevolent and tell him that it will be done.

yH3aD5y.png


:( . As we walk by we see a complete stranger who starts a dialogue with us.

B5K2zc9.png


Wha..

AsBk5jK.png


Hey liste..

0li1Tci.png


Why?

m9AIbTQ.png


Oh my friend, a couple of minutes ago I was called a street sweeper. We go for the second option, [genetic/financial lottery, etc. ]

NuZgjUD.png


:obviously: . Next house looks bad.

VCJwfPi.png


Giving money to the people bring us more experience. And we can feel good about it :smug:.

GKIf71Y.png


Nobody can resist the charm and muscles of Andhaira. Flattery answer is the only way :Bioware:

smu8OBt.png


:cool:

We've almost visited everyone in town. Expect... our aunt Ru'tan. It sounds familiar, oh yes, now I remember.

Gems and gold. Excellent. We don't have much reserves so every coin counts for now. Meanwhile you can see the friendly tiger on the left. He just sits there like a lazy cat and do nothing.

4dpasOK.png


We finally go to our father to sign him a treaty.

qLREkKA.png


We go for the first option.

St0oog0.png


I guess it's finally over. Now only the Wassabs remain.

Before we take the papers to end the quest, let's see the evil oasis that was mentioned many time. Those berries won't take themselves!

bpnQuYo.png


We have got here hyenas, plants shooting with some nasty blowing spikes, little tornados and last but not least a deadly bees. You can't slay them with the sword so when you see them, RUN!
As we move to the town, a strange creature appears.

Ekhm, I mean - Yes, I am the man of honor.

So we have berries and a message to Qadi. It was wise to search the oasis. And a healing pool which we can visit any time we want:incline:.
Just as we walk by to the city walls a familiar face appears.

But first things first, let's meet the merchant.

I would "study" her too. Ekhm, sorry. Now to give the treaty and the message.

CIxJfRC.png

Good to know there is a source of that infestation. I warned the siren about the filthy merchant who wants to profit from her enslavment. Time to get back to the city.

Time to move. Maybe someone survived. Aftter some search I've found some old man attacked by a pack of hyenas. My swift blade have slayed them all.

yyInmHX.png


PqXDiTE.png


Ha, at least we've got the Caliph problems off our list. He recognizes us quickly.

Uyttsir.png


DS7xc2s.png


Yes, yes, let's ask him the obvious question.

V90AfEt.png


ty2a9Lb.png


The family djin destroys rival family's ship, but leaves Caliph and helps our soon to be wife Kara. Surely there is someone else who has cast a spell on the genie, someone powerful.

WKWKuWu.png


DOKd7bD.png


As we have any choice in that matter. But it's near the coast so finding it wasn't difficult.

vjZ2P80.png


poPJ1de.png


jEIb8bP.png


Kara is alive and well, we are moving in the good direction. It's time to return to the city.

yuuy0aK.png


No kidding, a ship could help us to move quickly.

OBtEId1.png


Butthurt Caliph doesn't give us any choice. It's time to say farewell to our family and journey through the land to restore the name of Al-Hazrad's. We take the last glance on the city gate and move out.

Part 4 : The Mage.

So here we are, with our family being imprisoned, no ship to sail and not a single soul to help us. Let's try the mermaid lady, she was nice to us.

ZK3rPC6.png


BQBlvnx.png


EwH4FYy.png


QgvgJVh.png


Yo0Y3pT.png


Sounds easy enough, let's go.

OFskOvM.png


tFyzP4O.png


In Grimoire Al-Qadim, you can ride on a turtle!

sOYx51U.png


New monsters - zombies are first to be seen on this little island, they are easy to kill though.

EMGkpUA.png


The archers on the devasted ship are way more deadly with their aiming, as you can see by the health bar. After defeating all of them our her goes inside the ship.

LZqhwSZ.png


After a quick glimpse we see a dead end and some evil character in a black robe who wants the ship for herself.

EyR5pHB.png


Unfortunatelly for her, wizards cannot into melee fights and she was quickly disposed of. The sweet smell of loot surrounds me. After grabiing all the stuff I read the scroll on the left.

V92sd6e.png


8H687Ux.png


Whoever wrote that was a prophet. After reading Andhaira sees a disturbance in the north wall. It looks like some kind of portal.

WqRZrTJ.png


lfEnH97.png


And behold, it really teleports us into some sort of astral dimension. There is only one oval room with no more blue tracks that can be reached. The big green thing can be destroyed. Let's try it.

u971DP2.png


It turns out into the smaller one, and it heals our wounds everytime we touch it. Sweet. Since there is nothing more to do here we return to the ship. Which is renewed and ready to sail! Turns out the green thing was a source of the curse.

lA73MkG.png


The big golden guy quickly catches our attention.

0KqrUFy.png


NB6zezJ.png


y5YpOta.png


8DAGb47.png


aSdhT1z.png


m8DRoMQ.png


Although Andhaira is a corsair a captain of the ship still would be very useful for us. But let's try play super friendly here.

HgyqwRV.png


nao46Xd.png


llFmOLo.png


Whenever we want to sail, we must set the destination to the captain djin and he will take us there. We have our own ship, now we can go visit the Mage before we move on the seven seas.

R8fXGgn.png


The doors are in the north part of the Oasis. We know the password thanks to the mermaid.

Ttfm7Gw.png


As we enter we see a dark tiles throught the whole map. Looks dangerous. As we approach on the beard face we hear a voice.

llD3v5s.png


WmL8kw3.png


JzJ76Ho.png


NuJmpqw.png


After this warm welcome we are free to roam the mage's dungeon.

0zadn65.png


There are some green puddles in the area, where some kind of living things will spawn from them.

po0teID.png


Riddles and finally something familiar. A giant rat, no drops from them though.

3PWx4Wn.png


Another stomping on the face in the ground and dialogue appears.

1yCqHCS.png


Wait, how does he know our father ? Later on...

YcuVaQw.png



gEWvJQo.png


Honor, honor, honor.

54bMs8Q.png


Besides enemies there are of course some puzzles to solve. Preety simple if you ask me.

wfuYVTU.png


jcF9k3v.png


Black+spider+(18).jpg


Giant black spiders. Usually there are couple of them. They have the venom too, which will drain our health for some time.

Back to the puzzles. The biggest one in this dungeon.

OFjBMtI.png


The pool full of acid. The only movement that we can make is throught those block that move in one or more directions. There are three wings to beat here.

vjgQtAm.png


A puzzle where we step on thos oval symbols and have to memorize some patterns.

WrVgdk6.png


The second wing - where we need to set the handles in the proper order.

tC1AdHU.png


wVyRn35.png


That was too easy.

Rm9lGxH.png


The women will ask the same question a couple of times. We need to be persistent.

vrX667e.png


Only one last wing to solve, wait, gah, what's that thing?

sAy0ir3.png


That's the hint about the responds to the beard guy and other characters in this sections. Whatever you do, don't lie and try to give an appropriate respond.

ySiWdVr.png


4i4pNFx.png


uF9fqVr.png


3oSbUkw.png


You have no honor, like a man!

1z3eULr.png


V3Bj8cv.png


This trap is really deadly so after memorizing the pattern of moves we finally manage to take some extra loot from chests and move on.

Yh4pJSj.png


6Jl3KmJ.png


Great, another riddle.

T7Othpn.png


PK0f1cb.png


O7y3qvj.png


The last respond didn't worked :troll:.

jOoIb1P.png


6C9S8Iq.png


There is no secret harem ending here :(.

AYQFBux.png




lF9af7t.png


What promise ?

mfOpV3H.png


He is reading in my mind. But of course I'll promise him whatever he wants. I have enough of this acid pits.

PaW6kQQ.png


Finally we are seeing the end of the tunnel.

c0BgQMC.png


DdSbWyP.png


First we'll ask where is Kara, to give us some coordinates.

Yp6W6XJ.png


q4ezvyI.png


Wow, thanks for nothing! At least we can go into the castle.

ZEIhgck.png


After some tracking we find a door.

Pqhdr58.png


Ha, who would have thought. And she has a nice pair of legs. Being a mermaid must be a part time activity.

9nS2TPK.png


Wife? Wife?!! Now the promise makes sense.

gEaa7p3.png


0FqpD2M.png


SUGKZ2O.png


Maybe he will be more helpful than the giant green face.

VnHvNrB.png


Djin Lords? Sound dangerous.

Djinn.jpg


X3LfmIR.png


TEvlstx.png


C5Akp52.png


7SRK5kI.png


Ok, we have some plan finally. But we can ask more questions.

223mRTE.png


jESY08I.png


G7zR8c4.png


yUhTBBc.png


hPp23dv.png


Thanks for encouragment.

7OJ0LdX.png


szXc8hP.png


Old goat is jeleaous of our muscles and strenght. Those questions asked in the dungeon had some pattern after all.

jZ62Evv.png


Let's change the subject and ask about the hermit who has the information about the Djin Lords location.

vJDe2YA.png


Sounds like Prosper. Apart from the aged part.

BbBxjd2.png


lPmw7qN.png


Fetch quests are my favourite ones.

2dZhD5M.png


ChnV0aC.png


The little golden things are birdies. They fly all over the chamber and are really annoying. The wizard has a point.

zeNeNgg.png


mSbQrez.png


Off we go !

PpedMJP.png


We have a little boat to sail ourselves onto the shore of majestic capital city. First the warm welcome.

SHxQRwj.png


GHMMasb.png


9OE8rs5.png


jrtcIYT.png


We still can't enter to private house, Mess Hall and Barracks. Better not get on the bad side with the guards.

01x6xGo.png


Our budget is tight. Let's see the friendly merchant first.

j89FKwT.png


That could prove to be very useful. We'll need more gems to feel the change in our pockets. After some time we finally find the proper shop.

There are no trade in-game skills. Oh, well I give the whole sum to the Emporium owner. And since we are in the city let's see the other vendors...

5u20sdg.png


Which aren't cheap, that's for sure. Maybe some other things are affordable.

Yeah, we'll come when we have a couple of chests of gold :lol:.

No need for charcoal. We don't need to eat anyway,hah.

At first I was scared what I can see there.

Why would I need a snake. Strange people living here.

Khem, thanks but on the ship I can do it for free.

I think we have a jackpot.

A game is simple to learn. After some time I've even know when the numbers will be the same as earlier. It was too good to be true. I couldn't resist.





Meanwhile in Capital City...

:oops:

I'm now rich like a Sheik of Agrabah. Thanks SSI guys :hug:.

A lady in the shop offers some honeybread. Lady, I can buy the whole building right now.

Don't need new carpets or food. Let's get going. We find our old teacher.

Sounds like the situation is getting more tense. We quickly learn the new move through some sparring and after doing some shopping return to the wizard.

With those last words Andhaira journeys to The Island of Shibaz, home of the Library Hermit. But that is another part of our story

Offering you such an awesome answer and then telling you it's incorrect is just cruel.

That's a fun little game, I finished it last year too. It can get a bit difficult at times due to the semi-great fighting system but it's really atmospheric :) And... short.

If Al- Quadim does not completely scare you away from SSI action- adventures, play Entomorph: the Plague of Darkfall. I assure you the setting is... unique.

Although there's more bugs inside than in all of Obsidian games together. Then you kill them.

Cool. I might try it and make another LP when I'm done with this one. I remember the box cover art. Judging from the pictures it uses the same engine.

Part 5 : Sailing through the 7 seas.

In the last part we ended up in the mage's castle who directed us to the isle with a man living there who would help us locate the Genie Lords. But our journey is interrupted when another ships starts attacking us. It's full of zombies!

0GdTlat.png


Those boarding sequences will occur more often, with diffrent enemies (elementals, pirates, skeletons). There is always some chest with a loot at the second ship.

Jy5UxFw.png


Finally we are here. The place seems deserted for a very long time. There are some scrolls left behind that we can read. We can take them with us too.

yOrbIK5.png


u5WDVoV.png


Cz0QVEh.png


We finally meet a new enemy, the harp. She can turn invisible and has a bigger hp than any older monsters that we already met.

4yO8yiU.png


This scroll will help us further on.

eGpNSy8.png


Another puzzle. Two statues. The one on the left need some gold to be "persuaded".

6yt4syx.png


9Mbzq1N.png


1vOuWGa.png


This is where are scroll is needed. Without any more delays we put it in the statue.

3PGz4ST.png


3PGz4ST.png


We go north. There is a purple coloured chest there. Everything seems normal when...

w8vOkFm.png


It starts speaking to us. Reminds of Torchlight 2 little beasts. Let's try to play a nice guy. We intend to put in, not to take it out (khem).

vJsLBA8.png


Another upgrade for ours sword, sweet. Finally we see some man on the magic carpet flowing and ignoring us. It's time for some tracking.

LINgRmV.png


Finally we catch the old man. Rashidin is really pain in the ass, and you will see why.

HsYqM9c.png



3k1cnDZ.png


prdyQ42.png


:lol:The man of many names.

m5acO5X.png


ZWBp6JO.png



After that, Omar or Rashiding or whatever dissapers in the library dungeon part. Lucky for us we can move there too.

4boQPOU.png


In the library we can find some more scrolls.

QgbjsQX.png


IyQkDbG.png


The runes, heh.

nHBg1i8.png


jAUDTM1.png


Finally we find some of them. They are all black and we need to stomp on them to change their colour to purple. These runes are scattered throught the whole library so finding all of them will take us some time. There are two chests here too, not obligatory to open but loot is loot, right ?

4VOiqlf.png


We can talk to Omar who is floating endlessly and is easy to catch.


3wTR7cz.png


He is playing wiseman and tells us diffrent stories. Pissing him off is a bad idea, we just need to play along nicely.

B69a0DH.png


h9fG55c.png


Zq2W7wO.png

After some more attemps there is finally a sign of progress.

QlAGWuL.png


A magic carpet would be useful with all those spikes and traps.

Yes, yes... It's finally over!

VvQL1hk.png


:negative:. This is what I've been talking about. The ride never ends.

NmCMyGI.png


:smug:

rFVP8Ry.png


More valuable information. It's getting warmer!

e4rhadh.png


Most annoying puzzle, where we need to take care, because those statues will move towards us and block every movement if we aren't careful. Not to mention the constant health drain.

GviDcwY.png


8jhyUJu.png



Gi6xh26.png


Finally, It's not a Bullfrog classic game but the carpet will suffice as a transportation through the chasm.

Wkxj318.png


Exit at last.

tUis4zN.png


We are in the more important part of the library. The scrolls are useless though, there is nothing substantial in them.

x3cux4g.png


The wizard told us about this. We can put the mirror here to "bribe" Omar and after that he will give us the name of the Genie Lords island.

fpk9gY5.png


It's very nice, but after minutes of seeing him floating through the level I was pissed off. Without any hesitation I've started to search the whole level. And voila, there is a hidden entrance with the scroll. The old fart can take his mirror any time he wants. We're outta here.

ilsfbie.png


6KumCUD.png


At the island we meet a strange man levitating.

Kh0rsEB.png



4IfxNiQ.png


Seems like he really doesn't like the Council. Let's ask more details about them.

ET4KPZM.png

Looks like djins have diffrent classes too. Dao, Efreet and Marid. Interesting.

Let's try some intimidation techniques.

sZ6j0jK.png


Well then, we don't have any other choice but to meet Mirza. His efreeti guardian blocks our path.

iyRAyrz.png


S8lE4Hw.png


Boot licking is our only option. He get's easily mad at us when we don't talk the proper line and refuses to talk after that for some time.

mIARhIm.png


Com1Gl6.png


hmRI26P.png


I guess we can go back to the "Reptilian Desires" and find one of them.

cEjwiWq.png


Let's jusk ask if it really is the wisest snake.

C0alrAX.png


nGDMnuW.png


400 old years, not bad.

uiYyJhb.png


What the hell!! Why did you did that ?

IuEyjfE.png


Puny intelect ? You are not Cleve FFS.

jGAaIig.png


After that we try to let off some steam by talking to another genie. Maybe he isn't such a dick like the earlier one.

Crv8hfG.png


e4kKrZw.png


YEzHizb.png


48UBHF3.png

We are back at the Capital City. First we learn some new moves.

After that we start asking for information at the inn.

Respawning fire elementals and deadly lava terrain which constantly drains our health. I hate the guardian.

We see a gigantic chessboard. At last something diffrent. Until next time!

That bottle should be tossed into the sea !

I mean, sure, in a few centuries, there'll probably be a poor fisherman who'll fish it out and open it. But that'll be his problem.

I'd keep the bottle around, shake it ever so often, yet taking care it isn't broken.

Why didn't you buy the coal and snake as soon as you saw them? It was obviously meant to be for a later quest

Part 6: Andhaira's Gambit

In the last part of LP we ended up on the giant chessboard. There are four directions that we can move from, and we need to find an exact pattern to be able to teleport to diffrent locations.

zhKNK84.png


Yeah, we seek the audience.

Well, that was quick. Another very helpful persona! When we are moving to the exit, we see a girl in a green dress who wants to talk with us. Apparently she can't speak and is imprisoned.

Great. So we need to make a visit to the prison in the Capital City. It won't be easy to persuade Calpih for one. Father could have told us everything and we wouldn't have to make so many travelling. Argh.
