JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings - Volume 1 ROM

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings - Volume 1 rom

The JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings – Volume 1 ROM is available to play for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game is the US English version and can be played using the BSNES or HIGAN (SNES) Emulator on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS devices.


JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I is an action role-playing game produced by Interplay Productions for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is an adaptation of The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Additional Information

The player begins the game as Frodo Baggins, and progressively acquires the remaining members of the Fellowship; Samwise Gamgee, Peregrin Took, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf (Boromir strangely only makes a single brief appearance). With the addition of extra controllers and the Super Multitap, the game supported more than four players. Players could play as Frodo, Samwise, Pippin, Merry, Gimli, and Aragorn.

Using cheats or an emulator, players could also play as a non-combatant Legolas or Gandalf, supporting up to 8 players (although Legolas cannot do anything but move around and take damage). Any characters not controlled by the player(s) are controlled by the computer A.I. The game progresses through a series of “fetch quests” in which the player must explore vast environments to retrieve items relevant to the game’s story. These items are often simple trinkets that have been misplaced by the game’s non-player characters (NPCs).

Much like the book, the game begins in the Shire, the land of the Hobbits. The game’s plot takes the player to various locations from the book, such as the village of Bree, the elven city of Rivendell, and the Mines of Moria. Unlike the book, however, the finale of the game is the fight between the Fellowship and the Balrog creature in the Mines of Moria (the first volume of the book ends significantly later). If a character dies, the death is permanent and the player cannot use them for the rest of the game.
