Reviews[edit]

  • Sinclair User:

    "Undaunted by public health warnings and threats of legal action, Fergus McNeill and his crew have produced a new three-parter that's almost, but not quite, entirely like a certain other game about dragons and small creatures with hairy feet. How like that Other Game it is will become obvious when you load up and see the first screen. There's the familiar boggit-hovel with its little green door, though the little green toilet may come as a shock... Knowledge of THE H****T may well come in useful but please don't assume you'll skip through THE BOGGIT just because you knew how to get out of the Goblin's Dungeon. You'll be brought up time and again by some twist of bizarre alternative reality... If you enjoyed BORED OF THE RINGS you'll be just as pleased with THE BOGGIT. It's just as funny and sick as its predecessor but is better presented and a whole lot snappier. It's miles better than the game it lampoons too."[1]
