About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

After the success of Indiana Jack and Kokomando, Heaven X announced today that Chester Adventures is in development for the PC platform! Read on for screens and details ...

Chester Adventures is an oldschool action-adventure arcade game taking place on mistical fantasy world. The player takes role of Chester, a magic adept who performs various quests challanging both arcade and mystery-solving skills. There will be an oppurtunity to execute adventures in many different enviromental locations, such as medieval and full of mysteries castles, pirate islands or dragon lairs.

The story begins with the return of a dreadful wizard from the Beyond World. Having acquired the powerful talismans of the Black Magic, he wants to regain control over the world. The only way to stop him is to recover the shards of a magic artifact hidden in different parts of the world. An old mage summons forth his young apprentice Chester and gives him a map that indicates the hideouts where the shards of the artifact can be found.

Chester sets off for the journey of his life, yet, he is unaware that the artifact is protected by mysterious Guards and their henchmen. Indeed, they have set many traps for anyone who would dare to take over the artifact. Also, Chester doesn't suspect that the fearsome wizard has gained knowledge about the very artifact and, therefore, has sent his warriors to prevent Chester from accomplishing the task.
