Not even in times of pandemic does our Cheril rest and despite her just 10 years of age, she continues to get into trouble because of the guys from “The Mojon Twins”.
Sequel to the funny title Cheril of the bosque
("bosque" means forest) a decade later, also for ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC and with which it bears great parallels, to the point that much of that report could perfectly serve for the analysis of this second part in both versions. The underlying problem is that the first part was already so good, that it squeezed both the possibilities and the limitations of these two wonderful 8-bit machines and there has been little room for maneuver for this evolution, to the point that the instructions themselves of its creators do not make clear the purpose of directing our Cheril in this new installment and, in some moments, we do not know where to take it, or what to do with it, but it is so playable and colorful, that it almost does not matter. Although honestly, I would have opted for a more different and radical change, not so continuous, since at times it almost seems that we are playing Cheril from that first part. But, be that as it may, we are faced with an addictive, fun and entertaining title.
The years have not passed in vain and their mischievous pigtails have turned into a blonde hair, and the Extremadura jungle forest of the beginning has been transformed into larger scenarios and with fewer restrictions in terms of obstacles, routes and enemies and that Therefore, it gives our little and fast protagonist more freedom of movement. As a novelty, we will have the invaluable conversational help of several eccentric characters along the way, (Yun, the Demoña; Lala, the magician; Ramiro, the vampire and Amador, the woodcutter). For the Amstrad CPC, in addition, we will enjoy a new differentiating soundtrack from the Spectrum version [SP 6 / AMS 8], as well as its more colorful and detailed graphics [SP 6 / AMS 7], as is usual in the comparisons of the same game between these two systems, brothers in their architecture, but somewhat different in their final performance.
In short, a title of entertainment in its purest form that will delight all of us who are lovers of these admirable eighties "gadgets" that will never go out of style.
