Onesimus: A Quest For Freedom

Platform: DOS
Year: 1992
Developer: Epic MegaGames, Inc.
Buy: Amazon

Onesimus: A Quest For Freedom is built entirely on Jill of the Jungle engine and uses almost all of the game data from every game of Jill series. This time, instead of taking role of an amazon woman you play as an Apostle Onesimus to lastly find Apostle Paul and be free.

Unfortunately, this game may seem to be unfavored to some players familiar with all three Jill games, due to this game having ripped graphics, levels, sounds and even music from that series. The only exclusive levels existing in this game are Levels 1-3 and the Hub. All others are taken (but not all of them) from the first, second and third episodes of Jill with slight modifications done on them, for example to compensate the absence of morphing into other animals or different music selections. Some of the graphics were also repainted (or recolored).

Music

The game uses nearly all of the music tracks from Jill of the Jungle. However, this in addition has an exclusive song called Amazing Grace (the last track in the track list) which was not found in Jill episodes. Alien, Bonzo, Deep Evil, It, Ominous, Underground and Wild are the tracks that were not included.

Dan Froelich is credited for composing and arranging the music of Jill of the Jungle and Onesimus. The music was created in AdLib Visual Composer (which was later brought to Onesimus) and then converted with ROL to CMF to change the music into the proper format used by the game.
