Chris Barrie did do a good job. I guess he wasn't in the others because Simon naturally aged throughout which meant a deeper more butch voice was needed.

Brian Bowles did the voice for the second game, not sure about the third. I hope they choose someone suitable for the forth, to make a character work it is all in the voice.

[color="Green"]So was Simon releases on CD, the first one I mean? I only recall having the PC floppy version and the nine-disk Amiga version. Neither had any speech. Same for Simon 2 as well, floppy version no speech. I have to play them through DOSBox now!

Also... I recently managed to get my hands on the Amiga version of the first two Monkey Island games which is good fun! Yaay![/color]

I found full walkthroughs of the first 2 games :p

The first one, about 2 hours long.

Both Simon 1 and 2 were released on CD for the PC. Obviously the CD versions were the only ones containing speech.

only problem today is people will look at Simon and think Harry Potter..lol erm.. obviously which one came first but most people wouldn't know.. :O

yeah i have 1 and 2 on pc cd.. even the dam Pinball and puzzle pack..


Also the Feeble Files..which was another point and click from the same people.. it a number of 'Simon sucks' posters within the game and a 'Simon' arcade game which you had to win loads of credits to use in the grabber... lol i recall Feeble also appearing in 'poster' format in Simon 3 and you can pick up the 'feeble' game with Simon describes as an ash tray.

Hi,

I just stumbled across this thread through Google. I'm a StS fan with both CD versions. Great games.

Mataeus, do you still have original copies of the floppy disk version of StS 1&2?

I ask because the guys over at replacementdocs.com are missing the manuals for those versions:

http://www.replacementdocs.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?7874

If you could provide scans, I'm sure they'd appreciate it! I've tried looking for them on eBay UK but I haven't seen any mention of the floppy versions so far.

I'd even be interested to know whether the floppy manual for StS 2 was a big one (like the one that came with StS 1) or whether it was exactly the same as the CD version of StS 2, which was smaller to fit into the CD's jewel case ...

Any info would be gratefully received!

Sam.
