In reply to: Square 's message, "Is Zak a rip off?" on Thursday, Apr 27

Zak does not have a dog called Snowy. That PROVES that he has nothing to do with Tintin.

Seriously though, you are right, they do have a lot in common. I really like the idea of a hero who travels the world and beyond, with stories that are almost based in reality. I've played a couple of other games that try the same thing (Carmen Sandiago and Pink Panther Passport to Peril) but they don't have the same blend of reality and fun for me. (Carmen Sandiago was too earth-bound and dull for me, and Pink Panther tried too hard to be silly, and the game play wasn't great in either). Now you mention it, Tintin is pretty close to Zak's kind of adventure. What do others think?

>Is Zak a rip off on the Tintin comics series? Tintin
>was there before Zak, the first comic appeared in 1929
>and the last one in 1986, I think that Zak has ripped
>off Tintin for these seven reasons:
>1. Tintin is a reporter, also Zak.
>2. They both solve mysterys (Or puzzles) using
>non-violent methods.
>3. Them two have dealed with aliens.
>4. Tintin has travelled by all the world, also Zak.
>5. So far in the comic series, Tintin has got three
>sidekicks, Zak got three sidekicks in the game too!
>(Annie, Melissa and Leslie)
>6. Both of them have saved the world and then write a
>novelization of it.
>7. Both look young, but their age are ambiguous.
>Thats why I think that Zak is a rip off on Tintin
>(Although all the heros I' ve seen everywhere have
>taken something of Tintin)
