How did you first become aware of the lba series??

i thought this would be an interesting topic. anyway i played lba2 once over my friend's house because he got the game for free that came in a package with his printer it also included triple play 97 which was a very good game. that was in about may 1998. one day he let me borrow the game and then i was hooked.

I think it was in around 1995-96. My friend bought a computer that came with some games, one of them was LBA 1. He fell in love with the game and didn't stop playing it. When I tried to play I immediately died . When LBA 2 came out, he immediately bought it, and completed it after a few months. But then I moved to Australia, and heard nothing about LBA until I came back to Israel. About a month after I came back, I saw it in a store, and immediately remembered the good old days of LBA, so I bought it. About a week later, I discovered the MBN, and the rest is history .

My uncle showed me Relent once.
It was one of the many games that he had, but half a year later i saw the game again in a demo disc i had.
I decided i have to play this game, and i bought it.

I played the LBA1 demo in 1996 and liked it but I couldn't buy it because I was 8 years old then and my parents said it was too much violence. A few years later I found LBA2 at the library and rented it there. Later I bought LBA2 in the store and LBA1 from Ebay.

I read about lba 2 in a games magazine, and I got a warez version from a friend, then I decided to buy it. I got lba 1 from a friend as a gift, because he knew I loved part 2.

Then I wanted LBA1 very bad, and when finding out that it was nowhere available, I added more or less on every Dutch 2nd hand internet sites. I was contacted very quickly by a guy from the east of nl, and I could buy it for only fl 7,- with some shipment costs with it. I received it a week later, with the original cd (totally unharmed, like it has never been used) and the manual. I never had the box.

Oh, and I bought the DVD box version of LBA2 for fl 9,95 some time ago, just to have it

In 1997, I got a cd rom with demo's for various games. On it was a demo for LBA2, I played it and liked it right away. Then, somewhat later, I saw LBA1 in a computer shop and remembered the demo.
I played LBA until the Temple of Bu, I couldn't get through it.

Then, for Sinterklaas (Dutch holiday, december 6th) I got LBA2 and played it. After that I replayed LBA1 and finished it.

I completed LBA2 not very fast (I played it off and on), but LBA1 I played for a week straight, or something. I only got stuck by the stone were you need to poor clear water on it, I found it out by trial and error

A (French) friend of mine got LBA 2 from her grandparents, and needed some help with it, she couldn't stop the rain in the beginning. I was fooling around with it, and i got through that part in like 10 minutes. After, i asked if i could borrow it from her, and she agreed. Was hooked ever since (and yes, i have bought my own version of both games)

My parents bought me Twinsen's Odyssey for Christmas.
But i had already played LBA1 before, to my uncle's who had it since its beginning. So we played it together. I was small in those days, but nevertheless I liked those games as much as today...

I also remember that I originally played LBA2 with him too. We spent amazingly all our nights and days playing that fantastic game, the only of my present that really counted !

Today, if I try to keep my very old PC alive that's only for LBA1, that can't work in the others.

I had a CD with al different kinds of shareware version games on it, and one of them was LBA2. It was so cool looking and fun to play with over and over again that we went and bought it "in a shop near you."

Why did you play the demo over and over again? It's not like there's anything interesting there.

Twinsun LBA 1 & 2

I bought a Danish computer magazine back in autumn 1998, where the LBA 2 demo was included, and few months later was I buying the whole game in a supermarket.
But there was problems with the game, so I bought a new LBA2 game in a warehouse nearly one year later.
Last month did I finally find the LBA1 demo on MBN, and it was great to play, even if the demo was small.

I did that too with LBA1's demo while I was waiting for LBA1 to be delivered. I was just too excited about the game, and wanted to start right away and escape the prison in one time when I got the full game

1997. A friend of my parent's got a new PC with loads of CDs. One of them was LBA2, and it was given to me . As for LBA1 I have a *ahem* ISO *ahem*. I have yet to buy it.

I first got LBA in good old Summer'94. My uncle had a top of the range X486!! Played it on that, loved it.

LBA2 came in Summer '97, played it, loved it. I lost mine however, and now will buy a new one from ebay.

My uncle bought me Lba 2 for christmas 1997, it was my first video game !!! It was really incredible, i wasn't able to believe that we could create a game as wonderful as that. Each day, when i was coming back from school, i played it, and each time i was by the game.
It took me several month to finish it, i was young.

Same here .
I kept trying to jump on the grobo from the house and to get behind the fence without going with the garbage truck (I found out that was possible a few years later ).

I played it a little at a friend's and later saw it in a shop and bought it. It was even better than I remembered and I started searching for LBA1 (one of the few times I noticed the game I had was a sequal). I was amazed by every little detail, it was just so great.

It is but if you walk with the garbage truck and are fast enough you can make it.

Before my friend let me borrow lba2 I decided to download the demo of lba2. The demo helped out a lot because (those who played the demo know) I got the protection spell. I highly doubt I would have got the protection spell the first time I played the game. without the protection spell the game would have been a lot harder.

I actually found out about it only second time I played (and after asking here ), and I hardly use it at all.

The only time I usually used it was when you're in the undergas and along the paths there are the guards (don't remember specific character) that shoot at you. Of course I didn't leave the spell on that whole time cause then you run out of magic very quickly, so I would put it on if I was just about to get hit, and then turn it off again.
