Synopsis Quest is a flash collection of retro RPG-themed minigames. An amusing way to kill a half hour or so.

I like how it takes basically takes an RPG and keeps only the most interesting puzzles/traps/tricks. Saves a lot of time that way.

Clever idea; the thing I've always hated about WoW is the running forever. So this let me get bored with the actual quests really quickly, so I could move on to other things.

That was fun. Lots of Dragon Warrior in there, in particular.

Rampage through space, colonise planets, use wormholes, shoot enemies, use diplomacy, upgrade ships and get shot in bits and pieces, all in less than 20 minutes or so for each game in the famous freeware version of Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (for mac and pc)

Dim, for the sunken treasure, all you have to do is wait.

Hi, translator of Synopsis Quest here!
Glad you are having fun with it.

The levels are short enough that as clarence says, if you keep at it you will crack it. The game is very 'a-ha!' based, so try to refrain from giving out too many hints so that latecomers can have a similar sense of discovery...

My 2gp.
