Apple Games Features The Princess Bride Game
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' latest feature transports readers to the fairy tale adventures of The Princess Bride Game. Players are given the chance to aid Westley and Princess Buttercup in their quest to end the schemes of the evil Prince Humperdinck. Apple's article includes an overview of the game's features as well as a history of the story on which it is based.

Begin this tale of true love and high adventure on the farm where Buttercup lives and Westley works. Help Westley juggle his chores with Buttercup’s requests, such as feeding chickens while gathering enough of their eggs so that the stockpile remains full and he can still give her two of them. Westley must complete all of his goals by the end of the day, but you can keep him working if you finish early, so you can accumulate more points.

Next, you’ll engage in a battle of the wits with that crafty Sicilian, Vizzini. His questions mix Princess Bride trivia with general puzzles, such as unraveling a word into its proper anagram before the timer runs out. After Vizzini loses his prize, Buttercup, to the man in black, who is really Westley in disguise, the intrepid couple must work as a team to cross the deadly Fire Swamp. Use Westley’s sword to defeat the Rodents of Unusual Size while taking advantage of Buttercup’s leaping ability. Don’t forget to collect gems along the way.
