Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

In The Hobbit, embark on a great adventure based on J.R.R. Tolkien's legendary novel, The Hobbit. Try to safely navigate your way to the Lonely Mountain and reclaim all the treasure that the evil dragon Smaug is hiding – but beware as the treasure is fiercely guarded and must be won in battle! Will you trade your jewels for adventure points? Can you successfully answer the riddles or recite the songs? Do you have the courage to steal a jewel right from under Smaug's nose?

On this adventure you'll travel through the Edge of the Wild, the Misty Mountains, the Carrock, Mirkwood, Long Lake, and finally confront the Desolation of Smaug. Each terrain will yield magical encounters and valuable treasure. All your wit, luck and skill will be tested. Are you up to the challenge to be crowned King Under the Mountain?
