Monty Python & the Quest for the Holy Grail
is an adventure game
created by 7th Level
in 1996 for Windows
. The game is based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail
and was the second of three Monty Python
games created by 7th Level.
The game aesthetics are a mixture of photo realistic rendering and the comic style of Terry Gilliam
. The objective is to move through the world and collect a series of objects in order to cross the bridge of death. The game also contains a series of sketches and audio clips not present in the film, including an alternative reason for the minstrel's disappearance.
Many minigames are available to play along the way, including a Tetris
clone using dead plague victims, a whack-a-mole
game where a knight has to spank virgins in a bed (points are deducted for spanking the bare-cheeked women) and a Simon says
game where the player has to remember the order that four different coloured burning witches scream in. The majority of the game is a point and click interface, where the player must also collect items to complete puzzles, and complete the missing planks on the bridge of death.
The game has had mixed reviews. MobyGames gave it 3.5
