YMMV / Simon the Sorcerer

  • Contested Sequel: All of the games after the second one, especially 3D
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The druid in the first game explaining to Simon how to spot demons:
    Druid: The only true way to find if a creature is a demon is to plunge a silver dagger through its heart! If the creature dies, then it is a demon. If the creature lives, then its heart is pure, and so we sacrifice it.
    Simon: I bet you find a lot of demons that way.
    Druid: Never been wrong yet!
  • Older Than They Think: The first adventure parodied and referenced Tolkien's Lord of the Rings long before Peter Jackson popularized it with his movie adaptation trilogy.
  • What an Idiot!: In the endgame of the first game, Simon uses Sordid's own magic wand to turn Sordid into a statue. So far, so good. Then he throws the wand in the lava to destroy it, which will turn all Sordid's statue-fied victims back to normal. Yeah... didn't think that through, did you, Simon?
