Adventure Game Studio Chris Jones [top]

Adventure Game Studio (acronym AGS) is a free software development tool that is primarily used to create graphical adventure games. It is aimed at intermediate-level game designers, and combines an Integrated development environment (IDE) for setting up most aspects of the game with a scripting language based on the C language to process the game logic. It was originally titled Adventure Creator. Game developers started requesting more features so that they could create more complex games. Gradually, as these requests were implemented, AGS became a more capable toolkit and it was finally possible to create high-quality games with it. Lassi Quest was released as the first complete AGS game in late 1999. It was not until the Larry Vales and Rob Blanc games had been released in 2000-2001 that the engine gained widespread popularity. There is now an active community containing thousands of members, and a large output of completed games of all sizes.

But, he looks dressed as the protagonist of the film Stargate. Alf's first adventure is set in contemporary Egypt where we we will have to deal with a mysterious sect. The second adventure takes place in the French castle Lacroix, a former French dynasty, whose dwelling bears an infinite number of mysteries and strange symbols. It's a really long game. You will find all the dialogue dubbed in Italian and it uses 3D graphics. But the best are probably the puzzles, mini-games that are contained in the various steps to the solution. It was later released as freeware by the author in 2012.

South America and the Amazon basin, a region of lush vegetation, rare wildlife, and rich history, with the potential for danger around every bend in the river. The mission? Travel up the river—and back in time—in search of a tropical cure that can save the ancient Incas from a mysterious disease. On the journey, fish for food and stay clear of whirlpools and log jams. Most important, avoid poisonous snakes, hungry piranha, headhunters and greedy conquistadors. You'll travel through time from as far back as the 1500s to interact with people who relate directly to the areas you explore. It has 3 levels of difficulty, 17 critical assignments, 4 skilled river guides, over 50 authentic characters, 101 types of fish and animals, and thousands of challenges.

What you pack - from machetes to first aid supplies - is crucial to your survival in the rainforest. In 1998, Amazon Trail 3rd Edition was released. It's not a true sequel to the franchise, but is rather largely the same game as Amazon Trail II, only with updated graphics and interfaces and fixing major bugs that caused problems in the second game.

Animal Microtime / Ocean [top]

The plot in this wacky adventure: the town of Snackopolis is thrown into chaos after the mayor Pepereinstein has been kidnapped. As a walking, talking sausage named Peperami who works for the mayor, your job is to investigate and rescue the mayor to restore order to the city. The game unfolds in a typical fashion: explore various locations around the city, interrogate other snacks to gain clues, solve puzzles, and defeat the bad guys. Most puzzles are banal and uninteresting - *fighting* is the only way to 'solve' many situations. On the upside, most characters - being lowly snacks that they are - have funny things to say, and 2D graphics are well-drawn and animated sequences funny enough to compel you to play until the end. Most jokes are too sophomoric and gross though.

In this multi-titled game (Armed & Delirious in the U.S., Dementia in Europe, and Granny in Germany) Granny noticed that things were getting, well, a little strange. Even her loyal sausage could tell something was wrong. When she found out her family had been swallowed into space by the Mad Rabbit, she decided that enough was enough. No more games: it was time to kick some lupine butt. And so this delirious but determined lady set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Join Granny as she travels to five planets and fourteen exotic worlds to find her family again. Each area of the game has its own illogical logic, and Granny must use trial and error (mostly error) to solve the challenges that face her. Ordinary objects are used in the most extraordinary ways. One of the few known games made by Israeli developers, this comic point & click adventure, features "Day Of The Tentacle" kind of cartoony graphics. You must collect many items and put them into your bra... yes, you don't have an inventory, but a "braventory", as the game calls it. The humor is mostly of Monty Python style.

Altogether there are six of these games, "The Hunt for Wild Boar", "The Pirates' Competition," "Sink the Ships", "The House of Edifis," "At the Gates of Tyre " and "The Barrels of Luck." Most of these only require you to move whatever playable object you have been assigned left or right like an old LCD game. In addition to the comic and games it also includes an encyclopedia of Astérix terms, locations, characters and history pieces, being clearly geared towards the youngest of gamers. The narration is offered in French, German and English, despite the game being only released in limited quantity in Germany. After the story is finished, you will get a high score which other gamers can challenge.

Babel Ian Finley [top]

You wake up with amnesia in an abandoned research station in the Arctic. As you explore, psychometric visions give you glimpses of the lives of four scientists and the tragedy that befell them. Before you can escape, you'll have to learn your own history. Consistently grim and claustrophobic in tone, with good character development and plenty of suspense. Good detail, with lots of special cases handled. More of a story-game than a puzzle-game, with frequent noninteractive sequences that somehow manage to avoid feeling intrusive, but contains quite a few mechanical puzzles all the same.

Blade Runner Westwood Studios, Inc. / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

The game is based on the famous movie bearing the same title. In the grim world of the future, cities lie in darkness, and nature gave its way to artificial, bio-mechanical production of all creatures - including human beings. Those "artificial humans" are called replicants, and are treated as servants unworthy of being "true" humans. You play the role of police officer McCoy, a Blade Runner, whose special job is to hunt down replicant rebels. But during your investigations, you also get to see their side, and your vision of the world and society begins to change. "Blade Runner" is an adventure game with an emphasis on detective work rather than on puzzles. There are very few "real" puzzles in the game, and the gameplay mainly consists of questioning suspects, gathering evidence, etc. There are also some action sequences, and throughout the game you have the ability to use your gun. Your decisions can (and will) influence the outcome of the story, bringing the game to one of the six possible endings.

Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive [top]

Our two favorite amateur detectives, George and Nico, are back again, to solve yet another dangerous and spellbinding mystery and save the world. This time they've stumbled onto a crime cartel with a megalomaniac kingpin, and a supernatural evil from Central America that harks back to ancient Mayan prophecy. As the story opens, George is back in Paris again for a romantic interlude with Nico, his photo-journalist girlfriend. But she soon tells him that, in the process of her investigation of a drug-smuggling ring, she has found a mysterious Mayan stone, and so they decide to visit an archaeologist to see if they can find out more about it. They have no sooner arrived than they are attacked by unknown assailants and Nico is kidnapped. As the game begins, George has been left to die, tied to a chair in the middle of a locked and burning room and, as if that weren't enough, he is staring into the eyes of a deadly giant tarantula that is advancing toward him. This is the first of several new and fascinating puzzles in the game that challenge you to "think as if you are really there" and come up with some truly creative problem solving. And, as in the previous game, you can die, so make sure you save before you try things (and keep George's lucky piece of coal handy!). But most of the other puzzles are still the kind that require using your investigative skills and keen observation. Overall, these puzzles seemed somewhat easier than those in the first game. Once again, it is a 3rd person, 2D, point and click game with superior 'cartoon-style' graphics, excellent music, and an even simpler "novice-friendly" interface. But, unlike the first game, this time you alternate between controlling George and Nico to solve the mystery, a refreshing innovation that serves to flesh out her character for you.

Bud Tucker In Double Trouble Merit Studios, Inc. / TopWare Interactive [top]

This wacky adventure puts you in the shoes of Bud Tucker, a pizza delivery boy who also has a job as a lab assistant during the nights. The story involves some fantastic features, mad scientist and robots. One day, Bud found the Professor missing and later learns he's been kidnapped by the evil Dick Tate. Tate, an insane, whiny sob wishes to create a world filled with the people he loves most...himself. To do that, he plans to use one of the Professor's inventions and clone a billion versions of himself to populate the world. It's up to Bud Tucker to track down the loon and the Professor before Barryville becomes Tate Town. It's a point & click adventure where you must travel to various locations in Barryville and find clues and help from the citizens there. The game play consists of picking up items and using them when necessary. There are 3 parts in the game and in the first part, Bud Tucker is locked up in a crumbly hotel in Seedy Street. Speech is available in the game as well as subtitles. The menu (pick up, use, etc) can be displayed in words as well as icons. This cartoon adventure is sadly little known because Eidos cancelled its plan to distribute the game in the U.S... probably due to poor sales in Europe, which is probably due to lack of marketing. Because: it's a fun and solid game in every respect with a wacky plot, though disappointingly short.

Byzantine: The Betrayal Discovery Channel Multimedia, Stormfront Studios / Discovery Communications, Inc. [top]

As the introduction explains, you're an American journalist. One day, your old college pal who lives in Istanbul sent an e-mail asking you to come as soon as you can as he has to offer you a story of a lifetime. But, by the time you get there, so did police, and you find out your old buddy, Emre, has ran away. You have to use your investigative skills to uncover the secret he was prepping to tell you. But soon afterwards, you'll find him killed, and now it's not just a quest on mind to take care of, you'll have to fight for your life as well. The game is a typical 1st-person adventure that gives you the 360 degrees freedom of movement, as well as looking up and down. Screens are static like in any other adventure games, and talking is something similar to the Tex Murphy games, with live cast and photo realistic surroundings. The game incorporates details of Turkey's history, so you'll have to use some pretty exotic piece of technology to investigate through the history and use it to save yourself in the present, and uncover the secrets that lie behind your friend's murder.

Callahan's Crosstime Saloon Legend Entertainment / Take 2 Interactive / Mindscape, Inc. [top]

A wonderful adventure on all counts and a very humorous game. It, like Spider Robinson's gentle sci-fi novels it was based on, is chock full of devilish puns, humor, and charm. As scruffy 60's musician Jake Stonebender, you will journey to 5 scenarios across time and space to help friends that include a squid-like alien, a vampire, and a talking dog, and ultimately save the universe. With nonstop puns and good puzzles, this is definitely Josh Mandel's (of Freddy Pharkas fame) best game to date. With non-linear gameplay (to the extent that the 5 episodes are self-contained and can be solved in any order), nonstop puns, inventive puzzles, and very well-written plot, it's simply a must-have for every adventure game fan, and a sheer delight for fans of wordplay and other linguistic pastimes.

Captain Gysi und das Raumschiff Bonn [G] Burns Software / PDS [top]

This game has been published by a German political party: the PDS. That's the Party of Democratic Socialism - the direct follow-up of the party which ruled the GDR with an iron fist. The title hero of the game, Gregor Gysi is their best known and most respected member. One of the very few figures which actually could have a chance to get voted. So before the election of the parliament in 1998, the PDS decided a bit 'different' advertising can't hurt. The result is a pretty short and easy Adventure in classical style. The controls could have been taken out of a Westwood Adventure: the omnipotent left click combined with the examining right click. Combined with the low number of locations and the puzzles ranging from obvious to brain-insulting, it's no problem solving the game within half an hour. Unlike in most other promotial games, the story itself is the not-so-subtle message. All the characters are taken from German politics, each item is some kind of allusion to a government decision. Even the rooms and decks of the spaceship are named after people. Unfortunately, the advertisement level somehow kills a bit of the fun: it's just too much. Not subtle satire, but they try hammering it into your head. The positive aspects (professional game design, fair and logical puzzles) make it worth playing though.

Captain Pronin: One Against All [Ru] IDDK [top]

The hero of the game, Captain Pronin, appeared in a Russian television cartoon in the 90's. He is a parody of Hollywood action films. His adventures were aired in four cartoons: Captain Pronin - grandson of Major Pronin (1992), Captain Pronin 2: In America (1993), Captain Pronin 3: In Space (1993) and Captain Pronin 4: the Opera (1994). There was also a cartoon compilation "Return of Leopold" with Captain Pronin and a book published in 1996. This game was one of the few Russian releases on the Sony PlayStation. This is a quest adventure in which you type text commands. The game has about 400 options and it passes through over 200 game scenes. Also in the game, among other things, is a lot of humor. Music in the game is at a high level, and the graphics are almost the same as the cartoon series. In the game, you have to perform various tasks, combat crime, etc.

Case for Cap & Co, A T1 New Media / Fusion Academia, Tivola [top]

There's been a kidnapping in Roseborough. Zak, Karen's pedigree pooch, has been kidnapped, and the evil dognappers are demanding a huge ransom. With time running out and Karen's parents on vacation, the clever detectives of Cap & Co. must find the crooks and rescue Zak before it's too late. A Children's Software Revue 2000 All Star Award winner, this interactive whodunit challenges players (ages 8 and older) to ply their logic and observation skills. Each of Cap & Co.'s supersleuths has his or her own special attributes. Set in England, game environments include Forest Lane, Villa Lucre (Karen's home), the shopping mall, and Main Street. Each character uncovers unique clues and witness responses, so players learn deductive reasoning skills. Once the dognappers are discovered, an exciting hunt for Zak ensues! But, the mystery doesn't end there, because this game features multiple endings. Cap & Co. is a gang of three best friends (Cap, Karen, and Billy) with one cool tree house. Cap, an intrepid and dogged detective, always carries his handbook for master detectives with him--just in case the going gets rough. Karen is Zak's owner as well as the daughter of very rich parents. She brings smarts and resources to the trio. Billy, nicknamed "the Eye," is always on the lookout for clues and is never without his binoculars. Together, these three young detectives must talk to witnesses and sort the hot leads from the red herrings. It offers 150 different screens featuring witty comic-book-style animation designed to appeal to anyone with a love of fun, mystery, and suspense. Isabel Kurtz's artwork is complemented by a clever screenplay and compelling soundtrack.

Follow the adventures of the friendliest ghost around with this game based on the hit 1995 movie. The game follows the plot of the film closely. Casper is on a mission, and he must explore Whipstaff Manor for clues and solve puzzles as he avoids the ghostly trio of Stinky, Stretch, and Fatso who are looking to put a stop to Casper's adventure. The game is played from an isometric perspective, which shows the rooms and hallways of the mansion in high color and detail. You'll have to search the rooms of this huge estate carefully for items such as keys and puzzle pieces that will help you unlock other sections. You can also learn new abilities and gain ghostly powers to further aid you in your adventure.

Cassandra Galleries, The Kutoka Interactive Inc / Corel Corporation [top]

This is a puzzle-based adventure game, rather like the 7th Guest. You've been invited to explore a mysterious museum. Cassandra, the owner of the museum, has disappeared with his daughter. You must find out what's happened to them. It's a mildly-diverting game of "49 challenging puzzles" that probably shouldn't be considered outside of the bargain bin. Most of Cassandra's puzzles are in fact quite trivial, usually solvable merely by trial and error or by answering a few questions of the "quiz show" variety. Any challenge the puzzles provide is further diluted by a wealth of clues or outright answers easily found in the game. Generally, the puzzle design in Cassandra is nowhere near as good as in other puzzle titles such as Jewels of the Oracle or Clandestiny. The "plot" of the game, consisting of nothing more than video-clip "payoffs" at the conclusion of every seven puzzles, centers around a search for a couple of people missing from a large mansion/museum. Many of the handsome rooms in the house have no real function except to hold a few clues, quite easy to spot. In addition to the house, seven external "worlds" await your exploration, but each is essentially a single room. FMV acting in the game's video clips is okay (except for some poor accents), but tends to be rather long-winded. The appearance of the clips is very grainy. Although the central character indicates you'll be able to ask questions of other people you discover as the game progresses, your interaction with them is completely passive. Graphics are in the tried-and-true Myst-style slideshow, with just a few, very-jerky movement transitions. Backgrounds are rendered at relatively low resolution, with many things appearing just a little too "shiny" to be realistic. However, the music in the game was enjoyable.

Ceremony Of Innocence Real World Multimedia [top]

Based on a popular series of books about Griffin and Sabine by Nick Bantock, written in the early 90s. One day, an unusual looking letter, with capacious, but not less interesting message, has come addressed to Griffin Moss. This letter issued from a pen of Sabin Strohem from Sicmons Islands, somewhere in the South Pacific. She admires design talent of a London resident (he draws postcards) and especially notes one of his latest works - one he didn't show to anyone yet. Replying only because of pure curiosity, Griffin has no idea, that these sentences will lead a correspondence, which will probably change his whole life. At the heart of the game lies correspondence between two heroes, separated by a thousand kilometers of land and water, but connected in other way. Two different worlds: archipelago, lost on the expanses of the ocean, almost untouched by a white barbarians and one of the biggest megapolis in the Europe, overpopulated with whisking people and gaseous atmosphere transport. Post will be their only way to communicate with each other. Through the letters they will experience feelings, that they maybe would never experience, if was together. To read each letter, player must open envelope or turn it over and in the order to do so he will need to "solve" puzzles, based on postcard drawings. Each letter will have different postcard, thus another puzzle. Most of them looks quite abstract, but in fact they are much easier, than in most puzzle-oriented adventures (Myst and his numerous clones).

Chewy: Esc from F5 New Generation Software / Blue Byte Studio GmbH [top]

Chewy is a fun but sadly unknown cartoon adventure in the style of LucasArts' classic Day of the Tentacle but with plenty of charms on its own. You play Chewy, a cute little alien (and very pink) who is out to rescue his friend who's been captured by the evil Borks. The puzzles, while not as creative as in DOTT, are quite zany (along the way you must capture a ghost, and write a best-selling novel) and fun to solve. Overall, a fun adventure that shouldn't be missed.

Clock Tower For Windows 95 / ULTRA 2000 Clock Tower [J] Human Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Clock Tower is a 2D point and click style game, where the player controls a cursor to direct the main character, Jennifer Simpson, and give commands such as investigating objects or opening doors. The interface is akin to 1990-era computer adventure games, but simplified to work better with a gamepad. Primarily, the player can only move Jennifer left and right through the environment, although there are some rooms in which an action requires Jennifer to step into the background. Clock Tower is unique to other adventure games of the era in that it features a stalker pursuing the main character; this delays puzzle solving and requires the player to run in order to find objects or hiding places to fend off or avoid the attacker. The stalker is a slasher villain, named Bobby, who wields a large pair of scissors. If directly confronted by Bobby, the player engages in a "panic" phase and must repeatedly pound the "panic button" to struggle with the attacker. If Jennifer is low on health, or the player does not tap the panic button fast enough, Bobby will attack Jennifer and the player will be presented with a game over screen. Although the game refers to it as Jennifer's health, the color of the background where her face is shown changes to represent her current fear level. Blue means she is in a calm state, while yellow means she is startled, orange meaning she is alarmed, and finally red, where she will begin to panic. In red, she is more likely to be attacked during a direct confrontation with Bobby. Additionally, while running away from Bobby, there is a chance Jennifer might trip over her feet, making her vulnerable if Bobby is close by. Many of Bobby’s appearances are triggered by the player inspecting certain objects, but there are some cases in which he will come out of a hiding place and chase Jennifer as soon as she enters a room. PC version is a port of the Super Famicom version of the game and as such features the same glitches but certain glitches that would cause the game to freeze and crash have been repaired and a couple of extra triggers of Jennifer falling down were added. Image files are sitting in the game's data that would later be included in the PS1 Clock Tower ~ The First Fear ~ which is the only true and complete version of the game.

Crusader IV: Enemigo Oculto [Sp] OLR Soft [top]

The spaceship Crusader IV crosses space when suddenly it suffers from an alien invasion and the crew begins to be massacred during hibernation. The few survivors are directed toward the rescue ship, and you also need to reach it, although before the release code, you will need to set takeoff and survive the aliens. It is a graphic adventure in first-person point & click and in real time, which means that if you're not fast, the aliens will fry you soon. It has no relationship with the Crusader series (No Regret, No Remorse...), but it also has a futuristic theme.

Crusader: A Conspiracy in the Kingdom of Jerusalem / Crusader: Adventure Out of Time index+ / EuroPress Software [top]

An historical adventure game set in the Middle Ages at the time that the Franks were beginning to be driven out of Jerusalem. The player follows the adventure of Artaud, a disgraceful French Lord, who is sent to redeem himself by traveling to the Holy Lands to escort the True Cross back to safety. This is done through a series of scenes, with narration. The player has to complete certain tasks before Artaud can progress to the next scene. These tasks are generally of an educational nature, such as learning how sieges on castles were carried out, or who the main forces in the Holy Lands were at the time. Whilst Artaud's quest is fictional (with some added supernatural events), the setting is quite real, with actual locations visited and use of historic figures. Artaud's quest will see his home in Dun-le-Roy wasted in a siege, travel across the Mediterranean to the port of Acre, and eventually to the Holy City of Jerusalem. Along the way historical information is provided on events and lifestyles of the period. The game's style has a 3rd-person perspective and uses digital footage of real actors again photo-realistic (for the time) backdrops, which are partially animated. Intertwined with the scenes is an encyclopaedia, which it is necessary to interact with in order to complete the tasks and fully understand the narrative. The structure of most of the tasks involves collecting items from the scenes and the encyclopaedia by dragging them into your inventory, and then re-arranging them on to the task screen. The game is very similar in style to 1998's Vikings. In 1999, a reorganized version called Crusades: Edition 2000 was released whose enigmas were revised in order to increase the pleasure of playing. You will be confronted with entirely new enigmas in 11 levels of play which will defy your reflexion and your direction of the strategy: charter a Venetian nave without emptying your purse, manage centers of production to support a seat in full desert, ridges to forward without encumbers an invaluable cargo while playing of the tensions between religious and political communities. It has more than 30 hours of game, 26 levels with many enigmas, 500 animations, many special effects, 20 filmed and integrated on the scene actors, original soundtrack by Olivier Pryszlak, a very rich iconographic catalogue, and more than 165 interactive cards on the Middle Ages.

Curse Of Monkey Island LucasArts [top]

This is the third game in the Monkey Island series of popular comical computer adventure games released 6 long years after the previous game. It's the twelfth and last game to use the SCUMM engine, which was extensively upgraded for its last outing before being replaced by the GrimE engine for the next game in the series, Escape from Monkey Island. It's the first Monkey Island game to be voiced, and has a graphic style more cartoon-ish than the earlier games. After the vague and surrealistic ending of Monkey Island 2, Guybrush Threepwood is inexplicably found on the sea, after an undefined adventure he had, and his escape from the Big Whoop where he was trapped for an undisclosed period of time. He eventually approaches Plunder Island and and is startled to find that he has drifted right into the middle of a raging ocean battle between the demon pirate LeChuck and Elaine, his lost love! But unfortunately before he can join her, LeChuck captures him and here we go again, off on another "rollicking tale of swashbuckling adventure with dull blade and rapier wit"!

Cyberswine Brilliant Digital Entertainment [top]

Stately, plump Cyberswine gazes out across a cartoon world, ready to kick some serious toon butt. Cyberswine is both the name and the protagonist of a full-length animated movie set in Cybercity 2070. Part machine. Part cop. Full boar. It's based on an underground Australian comic book character. This is one of the first "Multipath Movies" — animated stories that let the viewer direct the action. You get to stroll down a narrative path of your choosing: stick with Cyberswine, or peel off and follow the action from the perspective of one of his pals. Don't dig the pig's vibes? Click on an icon in the corner of the screen, and tweak his character to make him more clever, anxious, aggressive or caring. You can also change the camera angle. Or not — one of the options in a Multipath Movie is to just say no to interactivity: you can sit back and watch.

D.A. Pursuit of Justice: The Gatsby Diamond Jewelry Theft Legacy Software [top]
Legacy Software offered this law simulation game for online ordering only and shipped it on 3 CD-rom discs. It was not available on the retail level except as part of a bundled compilation, released later. You play the new Assistant District Attorney who has been given a brand new case. The police have finished their investigations and nabbed who they believe committed the crime. It's up to you to get the case ready to take to the courtroom and then go before the judge. As the title suggests, the gist of this case is about the theft of a diamond necklace and camera. The stolen items were found in the car of a young co-ed, whom the cops arrested. Much of their evidence is circumstantial, however, so you have more work ahead of you to find more proof. Talk to fashion photographers, models and family members. Gather evidence by using your digital camera. In your computer notebook, order tests and study similar case histories in the law library. Compile all of your case notes, witness statements and test results in the "Case Constructor" which will form the basis for the trial. Then head to the courtroom to present the case. If all goes well, there will be a conviction. Real actors and actresses play the parts in this game, which is very much like an interactive movie. It features a point and click interface, FMV graphics, music and sound effects.

This is a law simulation game in which you take on the role of an Assistant District Attorney for the State of California. The story: Tommy Wu has been murdered after a blow-up at a pool hall between two rival gangs. Was his death an accident .. or was it pre-meditated murder? Police investigators have gathered enough evidence to make an arrest. Now it's time for you to do your job. Your goals: To prove that a crime has been committed and that the defendant being tried did commit the crime. Your on-screen notebook computer provides everything you need. In the information-gathering portion, the maps allow you to travel to the police station to view witness statements and examine evidence, and then go to the crime lab where lab results you have ordered can be picked up. You can read similar legal case studies and study current legislation for help. The "Case Constructor" is a briefcase, of sorts, in which you will organize all pieces of the crime puzzle together to get ready for your day in court. Put all the components in the proper places and you'll win. Do it wrong and not only will a criminal go free, but you'll be taunted by the opposing council. Features include real actors and actresses in movie quality video, point and click interface, and an original musical sound track. This segment was released separately by Legacy Software and sold via their web site on 3 cd-rom discs. Later, it was combined with the other 2 cases and distributed to retail outlets as a bundle. Then in 2001, this case was re-released as a stand-alone product and renamed Pursuit of Justice.

D.A. Pursuit of Justice: The Sunset Boulevard Deuce Legacy Software [top]

Months before the compilation of D.A. Pursuit of Justice was available on retail shelves, Legacy Software sold its 3 cases separately for on-line ordering only. This is one of those cases and shipped on 2 CD-ROM discs. You play a California Assistant District Attorney. The police have gathered enough evidence to make an arrest .. but you must be able to prove, in court, that a crime has indeed been committed and that the person on trial committed that crime. In interactive movie fashion, you'll control your character's actions by mouse in first person. The game features still shots in combination with FMV scenes, a full musical score and real actors and actresses. The Sunset Boulevard Deuce case sounds like a simple DUI (Driving Under the Influence) based upon what the police came up with so far - an open wine bottle, high Blood Alcohol content and several eyewitnesses. You only have 4 days to get your act together. Of course, as your investigation continues, you find it's not as cut and dry as it seemed at first glance. During the course of the game, you are able to travel to various locations (i.e. the police station, law library, locations of witnesses) and work in your own office. Everything you need to build your case is on hand. Use your trusty digital camera and legal notebook (computer) to research law, get advice, send evidence to the lab, and analyze test results. Put all the pieces together in the "Case Constructor" which is arranged by departments. When you're ready, go to court where you will present your case, interrogate witnesses on the stand, make objections and closing arguments. If you've done your job, there'll be a new inmate in the State Pen. Make a mistake and they'll go free.

Day The World Broke, The David Weissner / Houghton Mifflin Interactive [top]

The world is spinning out of control. Quite suddenly, it rained in the Sahara, large farm animals began floating off their ranches, a terrible forest fire broke out in the Amazon jungle, North Dakota and South Dakota switched places, and strangest of all, there were no traffic jams in Los Angeles! Players will travel to the center of the planet, explore exciting new places, meet imaginative characters, help them with their puzzling quests and help restore world order. Without any time to spare, they begin their exciting quest to save the world in an old, enchanting forest which houses the entrance to the world's interior. Once they enter, players make an extraordinary discovery - the world is run by a giant machine, the World Works. As they explore this alternate world, players will soon find the earth's control room where they meet two friendly, but busy, engineers - Bud and Julius - who attempt a Great Tune Up, hoping that this will solve the world's problems, but things go haywire! The engineers need the player's help to figure out what's causing all the trouble. Before they know it, Julius has equipped them with a special antimagnetic medallion and is sending them down the poles, as in North and South, searching for the mysterious Four Elements Room - an area deep within the center of the Earth which is the primary engine driving the World Works. Players come face-to-face with a fantastical group of creatures, the Mechanimals - part animal, part machine - who are unintentionally wreaking havoc in the Earth's machinery. It's up to the players to talk to these wacky creatures and somehow find a way to get them to leave the Four Elements Room so that the machine can function normally again and the world can return to normal. The players must visit The Shop, where Manifold will happily make them a Mechanimal head to replace their own human model; The Mechanimal Historical Society, where players can discover exactly who these creatures are and where they came from; the Iron Works - where Cathode, the Chief Metal Stamper and Senior Alchemist, can help them make a unique metal alloy; and, of course, Lugnut's, where players can sip a drink from the world's (Mechanimal, that is) most famous oil and sludge emporium.

Der Schatz von Venedig [G] Daniele Panebraco, De Agostini / Sunflowers Interactive Entertainment Software GmbH [top]

The Treasure Of Venice is a kids adventure game with nice art. We play Leo Leoni and study history. Leo's father as well as his friend professor Pannelotti worked on the Templars. One day Pannelotti finds behind a shelf in a library a small box with a pergament and a strange piece of soap. The next day (!) Pannelotti dies under mysterious circumstances. Besides our friend, the professor's daughter, is kidnapped. And other people too seem to be interested in the pergament. A trace leads to Venice and Leo tries to release the kidnapped friend of course and thereby encounters the secret of the Templars. There are some typical hotspots, where something ridiculous, unreasonable happens if you click on them. There are puzzles of course, some timed sequences, and the need to find certain objects. Views will change in the game, from third person to first person. There are also small action sequences that you must go through e.g. a boat race or must fly up a building with a few hair-dryer-operated balloons.

William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton were represented by a voice actor impersonating the deceased Hartnell and Troughton. The substitute Hartnell and Troughton clips were laced with artificial grain to simulate vintage recordings. Jon Pertwee originally agreed to appear in the game. However, due to his death before recording, an agreement was reached with his widow, Ingeborg Pertwee, to represent him in the game using audio clips from the television series. This game contains Anthony Ainley's final recorded performance as the Master before his death.

Down In The Dumps Haiku Studios / Philips Interactive Media, Inc. [top]

The story of the game is about the Blubs, an extraterrestrial family (father and mother Blub, their son and daughter, the grandparents and the pet Stinkie), who crash with their spaceship on a landfill on Earth after being pursued by the villainous Khan and his criminal associates. After surviving the crash, the Blub family goes on to live on the landfill, while trying to repair their damaged spaceship in order to return home. The player is set out on a mission by grandfather Blub, an inventor and the spaceship's technician, to find the missing parts needed to reconstruct the spaceship. Meanwhile Khan, whose ship also crashed on the landfill after the pursuit of the Blub family, sends out his minions to frustrate the efforts of the Blub family. The game consists of five parts called "toons", all set in the landfill – except for part five which takes place in space – featuring one or two of the Blub family members as playable characters. Each of the five sections has its own title, respectively "The Blub, the Rat and the Bad Guy", "The Hypnotic Machine", "The Abominable Robin Blub", "The Bum" and "The End". Also, every episode has its own distinct visual theme, although the overall visual style is very cartoon-like. The player visits the head of a homeless person ("bum") and a society inhabited by frogs, where a series of events somewhat reminiscent of the Robin Hood story is triggered. The player has to solve different puzzles in order to advance the plot by using a point and click interface. Large portions of the plot are told by pre-rendered cinematics, often triggered at the beginning or the end of a "toon". It generally received positive reviews and was lauded because of its visual style, cinematic approach and good graphics, although the humour wasn't appreciated by everyone. Some people also complained about the lack of a real ending to the story, offering a resolution to the situation of the Blubs, and therefore the pointlessness of the whole game. This is because the fifth part of the story – the real ending – is easily overlooked, as it can only be accessed after the credits roll at the end of the fourth episode, as if the developers intended it as an easter egg.

Duckman: The Legend of The Fall / Duckman: The Graphic Adventures of a Private Dick Illusions Game Company, The / Playmates Interactive Entertainment [top]

One of the rarest CD-ROM adventure games of all time due to its limited distribution, Duckman is a great game based on a popular TV cartoon of the same name that aired on USA Network, which in turn was based on the underground comic created by Everett Peck. The story begins with you, Duckman, taking a long-overdue break from your TV show at a Hollywood spa. You soon learn that you have been replaced on the show by the new Duckman, a macho replacement hired in your absence. Unfortunately for you, he has become incredibly popular with the studio, the cast, and even the show's fans. As the original Duckman, you must find a way back onto the show and reclaim your star status. Along the way, you will find that your old enemy, King Chicken is behind the whole thing and is planning on murdering your family for revenge. Duckman is based on the improved engine last used in Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity, i.e. traditional inventory-based point-and-click adventure. One of the annoying things about the otherwise excellent Virtual Stupidity is the game's tendency to pop in and out of a window for cutscenes. Thanks to full-screen Direct X support, this does not happen in Duckman: the cutscenes happen right inside the gameworld, thus maintaining the continuity and suspension of disbelief. True to the game's pedigree, the dialog is very witty, and full of quips from the TV shows that fans will recognize. On the downside, the game is shorter than average, and very easy. Beginners should be able to finish it with little or no difficulty, while experienced gamers will be able to finish it in a few sittings. Still, great humor and plot makes Duckman a good game that's well worth a play through for everyone.

Enemy Zero Warp Inc. / SEGA Corporation [top]

"Enemy Zero" is one of the horror titles by Warp, closely connected to D (and its sequel D2 for Dreamcast). It also features the same heroine as in D series. The crew members of the spaceship Aki were in a state of suspended animation. All of a sudden, the ship emergency program woke them up. What has happened? Apparently, a hostile alien life form had penetrated the spaceship. Now Laura, the heroine of the game, has to establish contact with her comrades, finding her way through the maze-like corridors of the giant vessel. She will also have to defend herself against the aliens, which seem even more intimidating because they are totally invisible. The game consists of two genres: puzzle-solving adventure and shooter. When you enter a room, the enemies can't attack you, and you can explore it from 1st person perspective, taking objects, and solving puzzles. When you wander through ship corridors, you enter the 1st person shooter mode. Since the enemies are invisible, you'll have to listen to the sounds they make. A high sound means an enemy is right in front of you; a mid-range sound means it is attacking from the side; a low-pitched noise tells you it is behind you. You can figure out the distance between you and the enemy by the intensity of the sound.

Escape From The Haunted House / Old Park Ghost New Media Generation [top]

Escape from the Haunted House is a mild horror adventure game developed and published by a famous Russia based software developing House. In the game you play in the perspective of Sir Edward's nephew and inherits his huge house, which people in that area believe is haunted. You get trapped inside as soon as you enter the house and the only way to escape the house is to solve all the mysterious puzzles set for you in every room. Hints and clues to solve the problems and puzzles are also hidden but not in the same room or place. In the beginning many rooms are closed and you need to find the keys for these rooms by exploring the house and solving puzzles. The rooms are created in excellent 3D graphics, which are elegantly decorated with rich Victorian era furniture, wall painting, antiquities, glass cupboards, cabinets, bookshelves, etc. Puzzles are not so hard for hardcore adventure gamers for most of them are adopted from earlier adventure games by slightly amending the idea. Gameplay is annoyingly linear so if your are stuck at some place means that you have nothing else to do but to solve that particular problem to move forward in the game. Ambient music plays continually throughout the game and adds little suspense in the atmosphere. Sound effects and speech is good, though there is no one else in the game to talk to, which makes the game monotonous. Overall the game is nice and playable but you may skip it if you have something better in hand to play.

Evidence:The Last Report Microids / BMG Interactive [top]

This is a detective adventure, in which you play Daniel Singer, a reporter for Channel Z. Your former girlfriend and co-worker Sarah Hopkins has been murdered and because you recently broke up with her, you are considered to be the prime suspect. You have a few hours to discover the real killer and your job isn’t easy, as there are people in high places involved that will try to stop you. Evidence is a point-and-click adventure with some real-time 3D action scenes that can be skipped. They are interspersed seamlessly and logically into the game, and none of them are boring or too frustrating. For example, after the first take-stuff-that's-not-nailed down adventure sequences early in the game, the traditional third-person perspective suddenly shifts to a first-person one, in which you must shoot your way in DOOM style out of the hospital. Then the game throws you back in adventure mode, only to transform again and again throughout the game into many other genres, including beat'em up, shoot'em up, a car/boat chase, and even a snooker game. Microids calls these sequences "real-time action," and that is exactly what they are. The result is a fun adventure game that will give you more adrenaline rush than most; and while these sequences are hardly the best of the genres they take from, they are quite fun and interesting.

Feeble Files, The Adventure Soft Publishing Ltd. [top]

This is a humorous point and click adventure game from the creator of the Simon the Sorcerer series of games. You play an alien called Feeble (who is voiced by Robert Llewyllyn, best known for his role in the science-fiction sitcom, Red Dwarf). He lives in a world controlled by the Omni-Brain, which aims to keep everybody happy and successful. As such, unhappy people are killed, and over a million laws exist. Feeble works for the Ministry of Galactic Uncertainty's crop-circle division, which involves creating crop circles on less advanced planets than his own, as a way to cause panic on those planets and stifle their intellectual development. As Feeble, your goal is to overthrow this system. Devious behaviour is required to achieve this. Over 5000 lines of spoken dialogue are included, as well as 80 locations. All the PC versions of The Feeble Files used the Smacker format for cutscenes, which isn't lossless compression. The 2CD version used improved Smacker compression, but at the cost of overall video quality. There is a clear visual difference between cutscenes in the 2CD and 4CD versions. There are nine extra cutscenes in the 4CD version of the pilot and docking controller arguing at Metro Prime.

GAG: The Impotent Mystery Zes't Corporation / Auric Vision [top]

You get to play Gary, a Special Agent for the Prevention of Sexual and Religious Perversions. Gary looks like Fabio and lusts after his boss, but unfortunately has been rendered impotent as a result of having been bitten by a poisonous penguin. His other current worries are the Dark Brothers, and a powerful spell book which may be up at the castle of the drunken Marquis de la Bourbon and his lascivious wife Lucy. This is a humorous, sexy, and outrageous adventure that, at times, reminds of Zork Nemesis, Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh, Myst, and Frankenstein. It does feature some adult-oriented material but is not pornographic. The game is a first-person, inventory-driven adventure that features quirky cutscenes. Many of the graphics are beautiful, in the vein of Zork Nemesis. The story, although unusual, is easy to follow despite being created in Eastern Europe. Some of the puzzles are quite creative, and it's guaranteed they will not be seen in another adventure. It does a good line in parody, and is probably best enjoyed with your tongue firmly planted in the cheek. The game includes a few mini-games too, like "Gagboy," a sexual version of Tetris; but this time, the bricks are naked bodies.

Moving it to the left or right edge of the screen moves your orientation 90 degrees in that direction once you click on the left button of your mouse. To move forward, place the cursor in the middle of the screen and click. The screen redraws itself quickly to your new view. Objects can be picked up, doors opened, etc. with the same cursor being placed on the objects and clicked. Fairly intuitive. The graphics, although not “stunning,” are top-notch.

Gravity Angels 1: Alien Discovery Brilliant Digital Entertainment [top]

This is one game in a series of Multipath Movies(TM) by Brilliant Digital Entertainment. These games are pure interactive movies that display a movie that allows for the player to select among multiple paths at opportune junctures of the storyline. In that way, the game is a "choose your own adventure" movie. Unlike other games of the interactive movie genre, which generally display the movie bits using pre-rendered full motion video, this game renders 3D models of the movie in real time. The science fiction story of this movie/game follows a group of employees of the interplanetary mining corporation Miller-Western. For a variety of disciplinary reasons, the employees are sent to the Jupiter moon of Ganymede which used to have a thriving osmium-mining operation but is now just a dumping ground for problematic employees who assault their bosses or engineer faulty equipment because they were drunk. No one on the base is to be trusted, everyone is hiding a bevy of secrets and to make matters worse, every monitor across the moon base periodically picks up mysterious transmissions that appear to depict some unknown alien lifeform. Who are they? What do they want? Hence, the title of the game, "Alien Discovery".

Hardline Cryo Interactive Entertainment / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Featuring more than two hours of full motion video, Hardline, a futuristic glimpse of a world in chaos due to the psychic influence of humanoid extra-terrestrials known as "The Sect," straddles the line between shooter and adventure. The former serves as the core action element, while the cut-scenes interspersed between the incessant killing scenes hold the storyline together. Hardline, spanning three CDs, is an extraordinarily long interactive movie offering aggressive gamers the chance to blow away a seemingly endless stream of alien enemies. The convoluted plot is initially confusing, but comprehension dawns slowly and meaningfully as the story plays out. Playing as Ted Irvin, a tough pilot thrust in the middle of the firestorm when his rescue helicopter is destroyed, you must battle hordes of "sectoids," unravel the mystery of Ted's past connection with his brother, and ferret out the enigmatic significance of a character known as Deck. Simply put, America's future is caught between feuding "sectoids" and a rebel faction. Although use of more than a dozen hardcore weapons like M-16s and shotguns to litter the landscape is mandatory, Ted soon discovers an innate ability to kill with his mental powers. Combined with more than 250 locations and 20 types of enemies, the mix of firepower is lethal indeed. Interaction is entirely mouse-driven: aim at the targets and fire weapons. The adventure aspects include picking up items, weapons, ammunition, health kits, and watching the cut-scenes tell the story -- typical shooter fare. The mature rating is to be taken seriously, as copious amounts of blood and violence accompany the carnage in very realistically shot video footage. Special effects are truly awesome, as it appears Cryo Interactive Entertainment spared no expense in the FX department. The acting is tolerable, though somewhat predictable and stereotypical. Hardline is really a love or hate affair, with no middle ground. The violence is gratuitous, but the enemy is alien, and the storyline is familiar, but handled with enough innovative twists to make it engaging and interesting in the long term. Hardcore shooter fans will find much to like about Hardline as they "battle the sect," but gamers with an aversion to bloodshed and mature themes should opt out.

Jack Orlando REALITY PUMP Sp. z o.o., TopWare Interactive, Toontraxx / JoWooD Productions Software AG [top]

Jack Orlando is a classical graphics adventure, very similar to the ones LucasArts and Sierra produced during their best time. In this game style (called a point-and-click adventure), you move your protagonist figure through a (mostly hand-painted) world, talking to many other persons and advancing in the storyline by solving many different puzzles. You are Jack Orlando, a once famous private investigator, who started to drink too much, ruining his career. One night, while he stumbles from the bar to his home, he accidentally gets involved in a murder case. He's knocked unconscious and arrested by the police the other day. As the inspector is his friend, he's given 48 hours to solve the case. The game's graphics consist of hand-painted backdrops with cartoon-like character models. All of the dialogue is played as voice-over as well as displayed as text and uses Dolby Surround techniques. The music was specially made by the famous movie music composer Harold Faltermayer (he did the Beverly Hills Cop theme, for example). In 2001, a Director's Cut version was released - the original game was for MS-DOS so it won't run on the new Windows versions. The new version is a native windows version. It contains some additional scenes not included in the original release as well.

Kithe #14 Mistigris [top]

Kithe was an e-mag (electronic magazine) series that ran, on and off, for three years, primarily documenting the comings and goings of members of the computer art collective Mistigris through text captures of postings to echomail networks, reformatted as articles. Oftentimes the conversational style was a poor fit for conventional publication, or a biting quip was just too short to publish on its own, and so these items were sat on until a suitable form of presentation could be devised. This form was, it turns out, the text adventure game - where themes and topics of articles could inform the environment in which they were presented, and where polemics could be presented as emerging from the virtual mouths of the very personages who put them in writing... and most importantly, where people are going to be expecting to be reading lots of text anyhow. Hundreds of articles are collected and thematically organized in different rooms, their specific display triggered (some more straightforwardly than others) by appropriate use of objects to which they are linked. Text adventure tropes (such as darkness) interfere with access to some areas, which become "unlocked" after the right object is found - in return for reading, the player will be rewarded with... more to read! A vague game lurks in the background of this surreal library-cum-adventure; some articles and some areas convey keywords necessary, as in Beyond the Tesseract, for the nominal "completion" of the game - but as in any good cave crawl, the reward here is really in thorough exploration.

Ladies and gentlemen, please pay attention - the Orient Express is about to depart from Paris! Do I hear somebody playing a violin? As the train slowly starts moving away from the station, a young, courageously looking man jumps on it from his motorcycle and makes his way inside. This is Robert Cath, an American about whom we don't know much as we begin the game. In the train, he finds the dead body of the person he was supposed to meet. Now he has to act quickly. The only way not to arise the suspicions of the police is to disguise himself as the murdered man. A very dangerous investigation begins, and the hero soon finds himself involved in a deep net of personal intrigues and political conspiracies. This game is a true real-time adventure set in 1914, just before the First World War, in a concrete historical and geographical environment. As you gain control of Robert Cath, time begins to flow. If you fail to solve a part of the mystery until the train arrives at the next station, certain events might follow which will lead to a premature and disappointing ending. You cannot die or get stuck in the game, as you can always rewind the clock and try playing any period of time again. Along with some detective work to do and a couple of inventory puzzles, your main task in the game will be to listen to people's conversations, to talk to them, and to solve the mystery by finding out more information about the bizarre case. There are also some action fighting sequences in the game. In 2013, a Gold Edition was released on Steam that added: an advanced hint system, new more intuitive UI & improved inventory, challenging achievements to test your sleuthing skills, cloud Saving (Steam), and in-game bonuses (unlock characters biographies and more).

Mad Cow Man and Deep Fried Beef Fat Boy Mistigris [top]
There's a current state of emergency that threatens everything British... it will prove more trying and more vital than the time we had to stop Playboy from publishing the Queen Mum pictures -- the Crown Jewels have been stolen! Sounds kind of like the beginning of an exciting text game adventure, doesn't it? Well, as it turns out... it's actually the end of one (Well, of the first installment of one... going on almost nine years now with no hint of the next episode 8). In this installment (#40) of the Blender competition, participants were urged to submit works engaging the themes of "Superhero", "robbery" and "England". While Captain Britain is nice for traditionalists, the authors here have selected Mad Cow Man as the zany protector of the British Isles in the madcap late '90s. You search text-rich portions of London for his sidekick, Deep Fried Beef Fat Boy, last seen absentmindedly wandering the city in a hangover-induced amnesiac stupor. Collect clues and essential superhero supplies from Watford Station to Picadilly Circus and all points (well, several points) between, taking one of the least efficient routes possible between the grottiest bathroom in old London Towne and the convoluted subterranean labyrinths hidden in its sewers. Descriptively over-wrought, its lush verbiage will overwhelm as much as its minimal scripting underwhelms.

Symphonic music accompanies the game, and is very sensitive to what is happening on the screen. It's of the mini-game genre, allowing escape from the real world and giving a kid a nice boost of energy. The adventure has arcade and puzzle elements. Real time controlled cartoons with horizontal scrolling. The original Russian game won the Best Graphics award at the 1997 festival "Anigraph". An English version was released in 1999.

Mirage Padmini Multimedia / Atlantis Interactive [top]

This is a Myst-type Western game with an emphasis on surreal graphics and a marked de-emphasis on classic Western formula. Wander around the desert using a snazzy Quicktime VR+ engine, and get sucked through a door into a building that has nothing to do with the old West. Pretentious stabs at poetic symbolism and B-movie devices co-exist side by side, resulting in something that is interesting, but (for us) nowhere near as much fun as the more straightforward Dust. As in Myst, you'll spend a lot of time here figuring out what you're supposed to be doing, and all the while your computer struggles to keep up with the impressive graphics. The story involves rescuing a cavalry man and his beautiful wife from a renegade Indian, but you'd never guess it from the first few hours you put in, which will expose you all sorts of non-narrative phantasmagoria. Artistes and philosophers might prefer this to a down-home Western adventure, but if you’re into boozing, whoring, and gunfighting, and are more easily dazzled by an ingeniously smooth-running program than by glitzy new technologies, stick with Dust.

Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life 7th Level, Inc. / Panasonic Interactive Media [top]

In Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, you have to wander through the different stages of life itself. You shall experience life from the time of birth to the time of death. As in the movie bearing the same name, one's life starts with The Miracle of Birth, followed by Growth and Learning, Fighting Each Other, Middle Age, Live Organ Transplants, The Autumn Years, and finally Death. In each of these stages you need to gather some important (more or less important) clues about that particular stage of life. These clues are needed later in the game in order to understand the other intellectual and practical stages of life—the Material, Spiritual and Dental needs of one's life. Once you are through growing up, you may advance to the big finale whereby you shall live through life itself as the inhabitant of a nice cottage. There, you must prove that you can live an organized life and be able to overcome all obstacles on your way to achieve a meaningful existence. Only if you succeed in all these shall the meaning of life be revealed to you!. All these may sound complicated, but it's one title that is expected to be filled with the utter silliness, stupidity, and exaggeration in the comedic style of Monty Python. In fact, it is quite an amusing and lighthearted title that places you in the midst of life's greatest dilemma and quest—the enlightenment of existence. This is the third game in the Monty Python series. Different from its previous predecessor, the game uses a more traditional adventure game interface. The player navigates through the different scenes that are rendered in photorealistic backgrounds.

Morbid [K] Jinyoung Technology / World Edit [top]

Morbid is a very hard-trying attempt at an horror game, employing all kinds of cinematic thriller techniques, all the while nothing exciting is actually happening. As a first person adventure in the style of Myst, the game sends players walking around between predefined waypoints and sometimes incomprehensive turning angles, clicking on stuff and solving one or the other puzzle in between. Most of the time is spend wandering around in the all to homogenously looking empty hallways of a school building and trying to find out what the game wants to be done, as there are no instructions or any other kind of guiding text whatsoever.

Mortalus: The Quest for Immortality H+A Entertainment (I. Hoffman + Associates, Inc.) [top]

An exciting role-playing action game from the maker of UFOs, Celtica, and Gems of Darkness. Mortalus takes players into a three-dimensional world of medieval adventures. Can you find the source of immortality or will you fall slain to the Servants of the Hand? Will your hunt lead you to the curse of the Dark Brotherhood or will you triumph in the powers held within the Book of Dark Knowledge? Mortalus offers action-packed animations with 3D rendered Alias and 3D Studio Max virtual environments, full-screen video, 16-bit color, and Logic, 3D and VRML puzzles which build in difficulty. This is an adventure game full of puzzles and inventory management. It has a confusing storyline that manages to be engaging even though you aren't always certain what you are doing. It uses QuickTime to render full motion video and other animations so they often have a blurring pixellated effect. Some of the background graphics are quite stylish and dark, setting an interesting medieval scene. Many reviewers criticized the graphics, but they are more than adequate for the game. Likewise, the acting was unfairly criticized in most reviews and is above average in my opinion. It would have been good to have a text option to make out some of what was said. The background music could be a little intrusive, making voices difficult to understand. The voice acting of the protagonist must be highlighted as the best actor in the game. Ambient and background noises complemented the game adequately. The inclusion of "health" as registered on the palm of your hand did not affect gameplay but added to the feeling of urgency, knowing that you could be "overtaken by the curse" and die.

NET: Zone Compro Games / Gametek [top]

This is a below-average Myst-style adventure game that plays much worse than the cool premise would have you believe. It brings absolutely nothing new to the table. It's set in the world of virtual reality, and as you might expect, it takes place in a 3-D rendered world. The game uses a first-person perspective, which allows you to pick up and manipulate objects by pointing and clicking on them. Movement is achieved by clicking on unobstructed spaces, which enables you to "step" ahead in long strides. This is a bear since you have to find the right place to click to move to a different area. Sometimes you click on one place in a screen and you are taken a little farther than you would have liked to go, or not far enough - and suddenly moving around turns into a complex science. The game's main problem is not that it employs a tired and overused interface, but that its Net-based, geeky VR content is way too technical, cliched, and generally uninteresting. In this gaudy 3-D world, many of the puzzles set before you are solved using whiz-bang gadgets such as "Diagnostic Module Enhancers", "cygotes", and "radix capsules". It's a hassle to remember what these things are, nevermind trying to figure out what in the world to do with them. It almost seems like the game is custom-made for Bill Gates. Puzzles consist of things such as running a diagnostic test on a Zeppelin to the cliched Internet problem of eliminating viruses. Aside from the well-composed, moody CD soundtrack, it fails horribly in every area. Despite the cool setting and neat graphics, the banal plot, obscure puzzles, and repetitive gameplay sink the game below the surface. Play Beneath a Steel Sky instead.

Neverworld [It] Colors Arti Multimediali [top]

This was to be the first issue of a series available in kiosks of CD-ROM magazines that would be called Raven and was a container of editorial content and video games all based on the same world 'fiction', in the sense that all the characters, all events, were linked together. Neverworld is a very large arcade / adventure, full of graphics and environments to explore. It's set in New Tai, Taipei of the future, where you can see the exploits of Joshua Jam, investigator of the virtual world as well as frequenter of the slums of the city and of the worst areas of Neverworld, the parallel virtual world where all the events begin and end. There, a Doctor Meridian, a kind of half guru that due to an 'incident' in the past, is virtual. The virtual world and the real / physical, are mixed. As you will see, the graphics are pretty good. Part of it is made up of former Simulmondo guys (including Michael Sanguinetti). The game is 320 × 200 and runs on MS-DOS, which at the time was still absolutely overwhelming, but considering the time of production and editing, it was produced in 640 × 480! Neverworld is full of stuff. Besides the game Neverworld, there is a bit of other material. The game was made free by the developer in 2010.

Next Space [Cz] Magic Systems / Maxtech s.r.o. [top]

This is a Slovak sci-fi adventure in which the background is drawn by hand, but all the characters are digitized, which was not very common. Ever since people flew into space for the first time, we saw amazing technical development. Over the years, there built up a lot orbital stations and we began to colonize nearby planets. This expansion, however, contributed in a significant scale of the total exhaustion of terrestrial resources, raw materials and energy. Accordingly, the world's largest company took the opportunity to make huge extractive complexes, on which was reliant virtually the entire global economy. You, the pilot Frank Zitty, are one of the employees. The inspiration for the game is Roger Wilco from Space Quest series, or Rex Nebular, because it is a humorous sci-fi adventure.

Perfect Assassin Synthetic Dimensions, Veritas Productions Ltd. / Grolier Interactive [top]

Perfect Assassin is a sci-fi action/adventure hybrid that is nowhere near as good as the classics in the genre, but nonetheless deserves much more attention than it got in the gaming press. As the title suggests, you play the most renowned and lethal killer in the universe - a cyborg part man, part machine who is caught up in a plot that encompasses many hidden twists and action sequences. Like most 'traditional' point-and-click titles, it's played from the third person perspective. But unlike a typical p&c game, action plays a constant role: you can whip out your trusty gun at any point in the game to switch to "combat mode" in order to shoot menacing things on screen - much like Alone in the Dark series - and you will have plenty of reasons to do so during the adventure. However, it is much less action-intensive than Ecstatica or Omikron: despite some (mostly easy but still annoying and random) action sequences, much of the game involves standard adventure-style puzzle solving and talking to NPCs. One of the game's highlights is the conversation system, which lets you set the 'tone' of your character (aggressive, etc.) similar to Return to Zork. You also can access the Kar-Net information system almost at any time during the game, and doing so is crucial for background research. Most puzzles are standard inventory-based fare, although a few of them are quite creative.

Peter Gabriel: Eve Real World Multimedia [top]

Eve is Peter Gabriel's second multimedia effort, a mixture of art and music within an interactive game where you try to change a surreal landscape into a paradise by clicking in the correct spots. The game's story involves Adam and Eve being separated in the Garden of Eden, and Pandora's Box has scattered objects across four game worlds which must be explored and various bits of video and music located to solve the riddle of "the Relationship between man, women and nature." The 4 worlds: Mud, the Garden, Profit and Paradise (plus Ruin, between Profit and Paradise) are represented by scrolling 360-degree panoramic scenes. The images of the worlds are made up of 120 screens assembled from 22,000 photographs, and each world features a Gabriel song and the artwork of one of four well-known fine artists, Nils-Udo, Yayoi Kusama, Cathy Monchaux, and Helen Chadwick, which gives each world its own unique look. The puzzles are intuitive, the player has to look around and click on stuff to see what happens. Buildings in each world, such as the Human Relations room and the art galleries, are common to each one and what you find will be determined by what you have interacted with in the scenes. The game has 80 minutes of video and 45 minutes of music to be discovered. Many of the interactions are keys to sound loops to collect for three separate IMX (Interactive Musical Xperiences) in EVE that strip down popular Gabriel tunes like "In Your Eyes," "Come Talk To Me" and "Shaking the Tree" to layers of tracks, riffs and dubs and let you goof around with reassembling them, recording your own mixes and translating them into animated videos. Background (or mood) music loops are like accompanying instruments, and flyins are the lead instruments or vocals. For each song there are 12 background loops and 18-21 flyins. Some are available by default, but many have to be found in the worlds of EVE.

Rama Dynamix, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

The game is based on Arthur C. Clarke's books Rendezvous with Rama and Rama II. As in many Myst-like adventure games, the player is an anonymous character; an astronaut who is assigned to replace the late Valeriy Borzov. Much of the gameplay is done with the "wristcomp", a device that is used for communication with other characters and mapping or transport to other locations. The player also has in possession a small hologram based on Puck which will comment and give descriptions of the surrounding objects or events (therefore used as an interface element for examining objects). RAMA propels you into the 22nd Century and immerses you in the mystery and adventure of a lifetime - a mystery that questions the egocentric notion that life as we know it is exclusive to Earth. Some unknown, intellectually superior force has sent the massive Rama spacecraft, which is roughly the size of Los Angeles County, to the edge of our solar system. A crew made up of you and the best trained astronauts on Earth sets out to explore the spacestation and unlock the mysteries of extraterrestrial life. The outcome of your travels will change the face of humankind, opening its eyes to the existence of an alien race of far superior intelligence. Joining you on the mission are Drs. David Brown and Shigeru Takagishi, experts in the field of exobiology and the environments of Rama. Otto Heilmann and Michael O'Toole are career military officers whose main objective is to assess Rama's threat to Earth. Nicole des Jardins is the chief life sciences officer, whose medical expertise is critical to your mission. Richard Wakefield is the quirky yet brilliant scientist who can solve any puzzle. And finally there are Francesca Sabatini and Reggie Wilson, the world-renowned television journalists, whose sole purpose is to keep the people of Earth informed about what's going on inside the behemoth alien spaceship. Once the ship's trajectory changes and it embarks on a collision course with Earth, many begin to think that Rama spells mankind's doom. Your ultimate mission is to save Rama. Or is it to save Earth from its collision course with the ship? You won't know until the very end of the game. The game was created using version three of the SCI game engine. As was usual in that time, the graphics are combination of 3D rendered scenery and live-action actors. Although it only supports 256 colours, the filmed videos are still of exceptionally high quality.

Riven: The Sequel To Myst Cyan Productions, Red Orb Entertainment / Brøderbund Software, Inc. [top]

Riven is the sequel to the highly successful computer game Myst and was 4 years in development. It was distributed initially on five compact discs and later released on a single DVD-ROM with a 14 minute making-of video and higher quality graphics. The Myst style of gameplay in which the player clicked on objects within prerendered still images and videos was maintained in this sequel, however it was enhanced with many animated scenes. It is widely regarded by players of Myst and other adventure games to be the most artistically beautiful and heuristically difficult game in the Myst franchise. Like its predecessor, Riven is a point-and-click adventure game taking place in a first-person perspective. Players explore interactive worlds using the mouse to click on items shown on the screen. Riven continues the story of Myst. We are introduced to Atrus' father, Gehn, who is a little, well, crazy. He has kidnapped Catherine, Atrus' wife, and imprisoned her somewhere in Riven, a place made up of several islands in the middle of the ocean. Atrus has enlisted us to help him rescue Catherine and capture Gehn. Again we must solve numerous puzzles and delve deep into D'ni history to complete our quest. Players can interact with objects such as switches or items in this manner. The cursor changes in appearance depending on what a player is pointing at. For example, when the player positions the cursor near the edge of the screen, the pointer changes from the shape of a pointing hand to a bent finger; likewise, the cursor changes when the player can look up or manipulate an object. Like Myst, Riven has an optional method of moving known as "Zip Mode". This allows players to skip to areas already explored, but can lead to players missing important clues.

Sentient Psygnosis Limited [top]

You are sent to the Icarus Space Station to investigate the outbreak of radiation sickness aboard the Station. Upon your arrival it quickly becomes evident that radiation is the least of your worries. The Captain of the station has been murdered by an on-board assassin. A power struggle has ensued while you were enroute to see who will take over the station which is now mysteriously careening dangerously toward the sun. Do you take the fast & easy way out... save yourself or will you try and resuce the station and its inhabitance? Your decisions determine what happens next in the unique sci-fi role playing adventure game. Unparalleled in-game artificial intelligence will challenge you over & over as it randomizes subplots, it's NEVER the same game twice. Probably the most interesting thing about Sentient is that it does make you feel as if you're onboard a space station. Unique communication methods allow you to interact with over 60 characters in the game and the characters react to emotions and actions. The fantastic real-time rendered graphics are dazzling. It's an ambitious first-person adventure game that features many interesting innovations, but the game is bogged down by poor execution and a frustrating user interface.

Shinseiki Evangelion Koutetsu no Girlfriend / Girlfriend Of Steel Gainax / Bandai [top]

This game is based on the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion and is essentially a visual novel which the player acts out. Set in the middle of the series (roughly before the attack of the Angel Ireul), the story revolves a new alternate robot design developed by a rival defense contractor (similar to Jet Alone), called TRIDENT units (alternatively, "Country Crawler"). One of the three TRIDENT pilots is "Mana Kirishima", who enrolls in school with the Eva pilots. Mana develops a relationship with Shinji and they eventually go on a date and kiss (The kiss only occurs if Shinji chooses the option of considering Mana's feelings over his roommates, Misato and Asuka). Asuka is intensely jealous of Mana and thinks the girl is a spy, while Rei is largely in the background of the story. Eventually the TRIDENT unit goes berserk and the Evas have to stop it. Mana Kirishima's characterization is more or less a combination of Asuka and Rei; she is not as extroverted as Asuka, but is not introverted like Rei is. Mana's character design is even a bit of a cross between Rei and Asuka, having Asuka's reddish-brown hair, cut short in a pageboy haircut like Rei's is. "Gameplay" consists of essentially walking around until the next scripted event in the visual novel is triggered. The only real choice involved is at the end, where the player can choose between an ending focusing on Mana, Asuka, or Kaji. In April 2006, a "special" edition was released as part of Evangelion's ten-year anniversary, with additional scenes focusing on the TRIDENT pilots' lives.

Sign Of The Sun ICE / Project Two Interactive BV [top]

This is a decent adventure game that unfortunately descends into mediocrity quickly after a fascinating intro and never quite recovers. The best thing about the game is the interesting plot: in the near future, several nuclear disasters have pushed the Earth much farther away from the sun than before. As a result, global temperatures have risen precipitously, new deserts have been formed and now cover over thirty percent of all land mass. Since new deserts are being formed every year, mankind needs to establish itself on these barren deserts or facing certain extinction. Amid this backdrop is Morium, a metal ore discovered by a mining corporation that seems to offer protection against the extreme radiation and heat of the new deserts. But before it can be safely used, Morium needs to be tested in the sun - the cradle of life and the ultimate extreme which will give a definite result on the Morium's qualities. You play James Mariner, a test pilot who has been chosen to pilot the Firefly, an experimental craft plated with Morium and modified to test the ore. Your mission is to deploy a probe within the sun's corona and monitor the results. But as usual with 99% of all adventure games, things did not go according to plan, and you find yourself confronting a strange alien civilization and the menace they left behind. It's a mostly typical adventure game in that you pick up objects and use them in appropriate places. The difference is that similar to Omikron or Alone in the Dark, action plays a big role in the game: you will have to punch and kick your way through many portions of the game.

Simpsons, The: Virtual Springfield Digital Evolution / Fox Interactive [top]

“Virtual Springfield” is truly a gem. Years in the making, this software for Windows and Power Mac computers takes Simpsons fans into a virtual-reality tour of Springfield — from Moe's Tavern to Krustylu Studios. A particular hoot is the Simpsons home, where you can read Homer's mail or thumb through the family's photo album. This is an engaging 3D animated universe that will consume hours of your time exploring more than 50 interactive locations, many with animated sequences featuring Simpsons characters and original cast voices. A bit of animated violence and a couple of suggestive moments prompted Fox to give this software an advisory rating of 13-plus. But any parent who lets their kids watch “The Simpsons” should have no objections to the content here. There's about 50 famous locations. Most of these locations feature Simpsons characters, voiced by the original cast members. Although it is billed as a "game," Virtual Springfield is really more like an interactive 3D atmosphere. There are a few small (and I DO mean small - as in, finishable in 10 minute or less) mini-games scattered around the town, but all of them are boring. One of the bigger games is a treasure-hunt of sorts: if you can find all the hidden baseball cards in the game, you will be treated to extra animations and URL of a website (that no longer exists). This is merely a ploy to trick you into clicking as many objects as possible to reveal animated sequences, and you even have to exploit some bugs to find all the cards.

Sophie's World Voyager Company / Learn Technologies [top]

Without a doubt THE best CD-ROM about philosophy ever made, and one of the most unique and original programs you'll ever find, Sophie's World is an amazing adaptation of Jostein Gardner's best-selling book about a girl's introduction to Western philosophy. Similar to the book, Sophie's World is hard to describe - it is part game, part exploration, part encyclopedia, and sheer wonder. You can go through the "story" of Western philosophy at your leisure in the same way Sophie does in the book - under guidance of her mysterious philosophy teacher Alberto. There are over twenty 'virtual environments' that present the user with philosophical puzzles and challenges which, when "solved," grant access to the next screen and epoch in philosophy. As a research tool, Sophie's World offers the Reference Band and Philosophy Map to access a comprehensive database covering twenty-eight key philosophers and eight epochs from Ancient Greece to the 20th Century. You can also interact with characters, and Alberto is always at hand for any question you have about the origins of the universe and other great philosophical debates. Great graphics and an intriguing story line bring the history of philosophy alive. And if all that isn't enough, the "Big Question" feature groups all philosophers in the program by the big question they try to answer.

Space Under The Window, The Andrew Plotkin [top]
This was created for a conceptual art piece. In March '97, Kristin started asking people to create some sort of artwork, be it story, poem, painting, whatever, with the title "The Space Under the Window." The only rules were that the piece have that title, and that the artist make an effort to avoid looking at other artists' interpretations until after the completion of their own. It's a highly unusual romance text adventure. Rather than entering commands, you choose words from the text presented, and the text alters in various ways depending on what words you choose. (Example: when the text is "The table is open, so you climb down inside. The table is set for two.", and you type "table," the text becomes "The table is open, so you climb down inside. The table is set for two. An empty vase, white glass, stands beside a single lit candle.") You can interact with the game, to some extent, though it's rarely predictable, when you choose a word, exactly how the interaction will go. Some of the more interesting effects involve light - choosing certain words either limits or enhances what you see, and affects how you interact with the game in various ways. If you're especially goal-oriented, this might be frustrating, since it's difficult to steer the narrative toward any particular conclusion, but watching the story go where it does can be rewarding. There are lots of different endings, and not many of them are upbeat.

SPQR: The Empire's Darkest Hour CyberSites / GT Interactive [top]

A point-and-click puzzle adventure in the style of Myst, SPQR pits you against the mysterious Calamitus, an anonymous enemy of the Empire who threatens its very existence in the year 205 A.D. You must uncover his identity before his machinations succeed in bringing down the state. Explore the streets, temples and secret labryinths of the Roman forum in your quest to save the emperor. The storyline - complete with drama, twists, cliffhangers and multiple endings - is a Roman "soap opera" crafted by television writers and historians. It's a challenging graphic adventure - original mind-bending puzzles utilize authentic historical artifacts and data. The root of the game is the original version, which was designed for multi-player use over the Internet in 1995. The game is obviously influenced profoundly by the history and peoples of ancient Rome. The aspect of investigating crimes against the city is as old as mankind's written history. You must journey to Rome and investigate five equally suspicious characters in an attempt to discover who is behind the havoc currently sweeping the city. A wave of panic, borne of treachery and murder, is washing across the Empire and threatening to topple mighty Rome. A seer, Sybil, has foreseen this trouble and foretold of a stranger, known only as Calamitus, who is at the core of the pervading unrest and destruction. A variety of on-screen icons (e.g., gazette, calendar, maps, architectural plans, compass, secret compartments, etc.) are provided to aid in the search for the perpetrator. You'll need full knowledge of how the ancient city works at all levels (economics, culture, politics, etc.) in order to ferret out the mysterious stranger behind the chaos. With the use of Cornelius's secret device, the Navitor, you'll need to become a virtual citizen of Rome to fully understand and solve the mysteries surrounding the city and the Senatus Populusque Romanus (S.P.Q.R.), or "Senate and People of Rome."

Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun Infogrames [top]

This is the last and best of all Infogrames' games based on the acclaimed comics series. Intrepid adventurer Tintin is back, and better than ever in this installation. The game starts in Professor Midge's Museum, right after the good Professor has been attacked. As Tintin, your job is to search for the identity and motive of his attacker. Little do you know that this simple detective errand will evolve into a grand adventure that spans the globe. To add to the mayhem, there's a hidden treasure somewhere in the game that you have got to find. You can now play both Tintin and his buddy Captain Haddock, although Haddock's sequences are few and far between. Most sequences now have depth, i.e. you can move both away and into the screen as well as left and right, adding an exciting dimension to standard 2D side-scrolling gameplay. The game will take you far and wide from France to Peru and beyond, and each sequence introduces new gameplay, surprises, and terrain. Speech balloons and cutscenes advance the plot even better than Disney's platform games.

TKKG 1:Jennifer Is Missing Tivola / Viva Media [top]

This is an innovative CD-ROM detective game featuring the TKKG gang, but you have to keep your wits about you if you want to successfully solve this case. In all German-speaking countries they are the most commercially successful series of novels of their type, apart from The Three Investigators. They call themselves TKKG, after the initials of their names: Tarzan (later renamed in Tim, because "Tarzan" is a trademark), Karl, Dumpling (in German Klößchen, in Australia called "Klumpling") and Gab(b)y; an unofficial fifth member is Gaby's Cocker Spaniel, called Oskar. Since 1979 they continually solve all sorts of crimes, from thefts and robberies to kidnappings and terrorism. The books were written by Rolf Kalmuczak, under his nom de plume Stefan Wolf. As the title implies, Jennifer has mysteriously disappeared, and you are quickly faced with a number of questions to answer. Why is Sandra keeping so quiet? What is Peter, the nasty private tutor, up to? And is Barbara Dupont as dumb as she makes out? The news of Jennifer's disappearance is broken to her friends (Tiger, Kevin, Katy, and Grunter) while they are lounging around in a café, eating ice cream and talking about their school holidays. They immediately drop everything and go searching for her--it's your job to help them. Before you set off, you click on one of her friends (your detective partner), who will tell you about his or her family and interests. Then, by simply clicking on the map of the city, you can visit different locations and ask witnesses the crucial questions. All budding detectives must be prepared for a lengthy assignment and bear in mind that some of Jennifer's friends are better at finding clues than others - Grunter likes to eat and talk about chocolate all the time, but Kevin is nicknamed the computer brain and is the genius of the bunch. Choose wisely or you may have your work cut out for you.

Torcher: Arsonist of Evil Digital Design Development / Padmini Multimedia Limited [top]

You may have played detective games and put kidnappers, spies or murderers behind bars plenty of times. But here's a detective mystery game with a twist. You are Sgt Steele of the 53rd division and help the fire department. You have to try and capture a guy who really loves to play with fire and that's putting it lightly. The hunted here is a person setting fire to a different place everyday. He is no ordinary man either, he has come right out of the depths of hell! Maybe that explains his obsession with fire. As the hero of the game you have to collect and decipher all the clues you can find and put an end to this madness. All the action takes place in a small town called Harrisville. Each fire is linked in some way or another, for the arsonist always leaves behind notes at the scene of the crime. The arsonist is not only an expert at setting fires but is also an expert of explosives and this makes him even more dangerous. You start out by staring at a building going up in flames. Turn around and you see your fire station. How to move? Not so simple, if you are playing Torcher for the first time. Click the mouse and the cursor changes, keep the mouse button pressed and move the mouse in the desired direction to 'look' in that direction. You can't go just anywhere and movement is quite limited. The game is filled with clues, so never miss out anything and inspect everything. If the object is a valid clue, you will see some message or some strange thing coming out of it or even under it. Click on everything and build up your clues. The game isn't a very long one, and it doesn't take you much time to die. If you waste too much time and let the arsonist continue his burning spree, you'll be torched too. The story is by no means slow. Waste too much time wondering what to do and another building or a house gets torched. You have to be on your toes all the time. If you are a die-hard mystery game player, this game will appeal to you. This game isn't for the young, it has a lot of gory stuff.

Twinsen's Odyssey / Little Big Adventure 2 Adeline Software International / Activision, Inc. [top]

After freeing the world of Twinsun from it's evil dictator in the previous game, the hero Twinsen has since gotten married is planning to have a child and has settled down at home. When suddenly Twinsen's friend dino-fly is hurt. Further investigation reveals that there is something strange going on in the skies on Twinsun and indeed... visitors from outer space have arrived. Twinsen once again embarks out on a quest for the good of his world. The game has a similar interface and controls to the first game. Indeed, the 4 stances - Normal, Aggressive, Sneaky and Athletic have returned and you will need to use each of them in certain situations, as well as Twinsen's magical ability to progress. The planet is also still populated with its various interesting races including Rabbibunnies, Gloums, Blafards and Sups. Without a doubt two of the most unique and revolutionary underdogs ever, Little Big Adventure 1 and 2 are charming isometric SVGA adventures that deftly weave action, RPG (spellcasting), and traditional adventure into a wholly engrossing gaming experience. Intuitive interface, vibrant graphics, and wonderful and unique plots make them a worthy successor to Alone in The Dark, designed by the same team. The games are almost perfect, except that late-game combat sequences are a tad too difficult and will frustrate adventure gamers who are reflexes-impaired.

Udoiana Raunes Stefan Zwanzger & Thomas Wagner [top]

A great amateur game that is an obvious spoof of LucasArts' Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Udoiana Raunes stars the bumbling archeologist professor of the same name who must find a way to escape the students' blockade in a school-wide protest that sent many professors scurrying for cover. The game plays like a standard LucasArts' game, with rows of verbs representing actions you can take, and icons representing inventory items on the bottom row. The writing, perhaps owing to the fact that the game was originally German, is spotty, and the humor doesn't come across very well. The game more than makes up for this deficiency with a lot of fun puzzles, though, some of which are quite creative (the ones involving a parrot, in particular). It's also much longer than your average homemade adventures, so anyone who finds Larry Vales too short (just about everyone) will find this a pleasant surprise. Overall, Udoiana Raunes is a competent effort that's well worth a look by Indiana Jones fans and fans of adventure games in general. Be prepared for some cliche humor and a very predictable (some would say inane) plot, though.

UFOs / GNAP Artech Studios / Corel Corporation, Hoffmann + Associates Inc. [top]

The developers describe it as a "Wacky Hillbilly Space Adventure Game". You'll play the part of the alien "Gnap", who gets stranded on earth, his spaceship wrecked. There must be a way out of even that situation, no doubt. Your job is to find all necessary parts to repair the ship and bring the strange little guy back in the air. The game itself is a comic adventure for a mature audience. Puzzle solving often means to hit someone else over the head. Literally. Gnap's roadmates are forced into his will by some sort of remote control. Thus puzzle solving is not limited to his abilities, instead you can tell some NPCs how to help. There are some built in arcade games as well.

Versailles 1685 Cryo Interactive Entertainment / Canal+Multimédia, Réunion des Musées Nationaux [top]

This game gives you a real feel for what it was really like to live as one of the elite at the Court of Louis XIV of France (the Sun King), and for the opulence and richness of his Palace at Versailles. The Palace has been faithfully recreated in all its glory... including the solid gold trim, the elaborately painted ceilings, the marble inlaid floors, the gorgeous furniture, the indoor and outdoor cultivated tropical plants, the famous Hall of Mirrors and the equally famous Garden Maze, and even the priceless paintings on the walls. You can explore and look around to your heart's content both during the game and in the 'Tour Only' feature. Almost everything can be viewed up close, and it's all accompanied by the style of classical music that was popular at the time. Most of the major rooms are named, and can be referenced for history and function in the encyclopedia that is part of the game. All of the famous people, mistresses, and many of the servants are in the extravagant Court dress of the era. They can likewise be clicked on to access their personal histories, including their jealousies and political intrigues, and how they fit into the situation at the time of the game. In addition you can access information about the customs of the time, what happened after Louis died, and many other interesting facts about the era. The adventure game itself looks like it was designed to enhance your appreciation for these elements, and is simple and straightforward. It all takes place during one day in the life of the King and is divided into segments corresponding to what he did at that particular time of day, because Court life revolved around him. You play Lalande, one of the King's personal bedchamber valets, an honor and an important position in those days. There's 25 hours of gameplay set in history's most beautiful palace and featuring OMNI 3D that lets you look and move around freely in an entirely 3D environment. Over 30 characters are modelled in 3D from period portraits, that bring back to life actual historical figures. Over 200 paintings can be studied close up, and there's a soundtrack of 40 minutes of Baroque music, true to the period.

Wu Kung The Monkey King Abudoe Software / Topware [top]

This is an adventure game in the style of comic book Mangas. The mystical story revolves around finding the "Book of Wisdom" and is based on Chinese mythology, which was wrapped in Manga-graphics for this game. An opening movie of half an hour, sometimes animated, tells the story of the Chinese monk Sam Chang. He gets an order from his emperor to find the Book of Wisdom, which should be found somewhere in the west. But Chang needs help: before the adventure can start, he must free Wukung himself. Though the Monkey God isn't eager to go on the voyage, he could be persuaded by a magic crown. After that, Sam meets two more companions the plump pig-devil Edgar and a sea monster. Although missions are also necessary to gather these companions, the squad finally comes together. But not for long. When Wukung returns one day from getting food, his friends have vanished from the little village where they wanted to rest and he has to find and rescue them. This is the first time the player takes over the action. One has to pilot Wukung through the village, collecting some more or less magical items and solving puzzles. After finding the companions, it's even possible to choose from the 4 characters in suitable situations of the game. Whoever equates Manga with violence should be warned: Wukung is child-friendly - the only violence is marginal and very stylized. In fact Wukung is an adventure for kids and the lovable characters and the rather easy puzzles show this.

Zork: Grand Inquisitor Activision Publishing, Inc. [top]

This wonderful game is a real treat for any gamer, combining as it does a great story with original puzzles and outrageous characters all in a setting that is both hauntingly beautiful and unique. But for those adventurers who remember and loved the old Zork games and their Great Underground Empire, it is a veritable nostalgic feast. Because it incorporates elements and landmarks of all the previous Zork and Enchanter stories, with the same zany humor, attitude, and unpredictability that made those games so famous. You learn that all magic has been banned from Zork by order of a self-important bombastic villain called the 'Grand Inquisitor'. The area has been taken over by his troops, a curfew has been instituted, and the people are all terrified. You are a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman, with a great new product called 'PermaSuck', and are busy canvassing in occupied Port Foozle when suddenly night falls, curfew is called and the Inquisitor's henchmen seal off the area. Desperate to find a way out of town, you explore everywhere, and the only opening that you find is one that goes down a dark dry well, leading off underground to God-knows-where. But you have heard that vicious man-eating Grues lurk in the dark recesses of Zork, and you don't have a lantern! It's a 1st Person, 3D, point and click game with 360-degree turns. And a chronologue is included in the box with a timeline and the major incidents in Zorkian history to bring you up to date. For the most part the puzzles are not too difficult, although there are one or two which may have you pulling your hair. This is a great game, one that is guaranteed to lift your spirits and make you feel good. In the Great Underground Empire, you will time travel to Zork's past, hobnob with the Dungeon Master Dalboz, and visit the famous Zork White House, Flood Control Dam # 3, GUE Tech, and Hades. And you will experience firsthand the kind of offbeat humor that made Zork legendary... like the crazed subway, the singing security guard, and that unforgettable phone, with voice mail, in Hell.

Zork: The Undiscovered Underground Michael Berlyn & Marc Blank / Activision [top]
This is a fun Zork game designed by ex-Infocom designers Michael Berlyn and Marc Blank, released as freeware to promote the release of Zork: Grand Inquisitor. The game is set in the same period as Activision's game; you are a Private in the Inquisition Guard, assigned by the Grand Inquisitor to explore a recently uncovered area of the ancient Great Underground Empire. No sooner had you entered the cave than the entrance collapsed immediately behind you. It seems that you will not only have to explore the mysterious empire, but also find your way out alive. Although it has been over a decade since Berlyn and Blank's last Infocom games, the designers clearly have not lost touch with the zany humor that made Zork so compelling. In every way, ZTUU is good enough to be an Infocom game, although hardly their best works. The writing is excellent - on par with earlier Zork games in terms of humor and atmosphere. As a whole, the puzzles are easier than Zork Zero but more challenging than, say, Beyond Zork. There is even a neat form of in-game hint system to help if you get stuck. The game is shorter than an average Infocom game, but that is by design due to its status as a promotional title. Despite some pretty far-fetched off-the-wall humor and obscure clues to a few puzzles, ZTUU is a welcome addition to Infocom's Zorkian legend, and one that will delight long-time fans.

Adventure of Tipi, The / Tipi's Adventure SienArt / Funsoft [top]

The adventure of Tipi is a classical side-scrolling Jump'n'Run game with Manga-like characters and animations, similar to games like Elfland, Realms of Chaos or Commander Keen. You play Tipi, a young warrior who lost his (future) wife to the mighty red dragon who rules the land. To bring that terrible reign to and end Tipi decides to kill the dragon. However before you finally reach the dragon you first have to pass six levels, each one with an own setting and a level boss. In a typical Jump'n'Run style you have to jump from platform to platform and fight the numerous enemies with your sword. Fortunately you won't die immediately if an enemy touches you, instead you have a life bar which can be refilled by jumping over various food items scattered around in the world. Each level contains doors in various colors which can only be opened when you have found the matching key for it. Those keys are that important that the number of keys already found is always shown in the upper right corner. The game has no savegame or password system, so you have to start all over again if you lost all your lives or restart the game.

Adventures Of Lomax, The Psygnosis Limited [top]

Cute, green-haired yet halfwitted creatures Lemmings this time appear in a platform game. As the only survivor Lemming that managed to rescue himself from the evil spell of Evil Ed, you (Lomax) must stop Evil Ed's distracting effect over the LemmingLand. In your quest most of your enemies will be Hench Lemmings which've been possessed by Evil Ed's evil spell. You will be mainly using your spin attack or -when grabbed- your magic helmet to free these imprisoned Lemmings from the spell. You have also some special abilities like building a bridge, digging horizontally through certain obstacles (just like the other Lemmings games) or throwing a flaming helmet that will help you to accomplish your goal. The good news is that Sir Lummox is smarter your average lemmings, but the levels are as frustrating as ever. Extremely reminiscent of Rayman, the game's multi-layered 2D appearance works comfortably well, and the controls are as good as the console version. There are 44 very in-depth levels, all of which require a lot of patience and trial-and-error to get through. You may have to build your way over one obstacle, only to dig your way under the next. You must also learn when to use Lomax's spin and helmet attacks in conjunction with each other, because some enemies, for example, are only stunned by spin attacks. Highly recommended, but be warned of the extremely high difficulty level.

A recluse old man originally inhabits the house. The old man, Bellini, is a retired magician. He used to be a celebrated magician who toured all over the world with his incredible magic show. Unfortunately he lost his touch as he grew older, and he fell out of favour with the public that used to flock to his shows. He lives alone in his big villa with his two pets, an incontinent cat and his beloved white rabbit. Bellini is a bit of an eccentric, and he still loves to experiment with magic. But Bellini neither understands nor completely masters the forces he is dabbling with. Bellini's world is turned topsy-turvy when his nephew Danny and his parents move in with him. Bellini is in a dilemma. On the one hand he does feel lonely and cherishes the company. On the other hand the noise and general upheaval the rambunctious boy causes infuriates him. One-day Bellini's pet rabbit disappears. Bellini is cantankerous and worried about the rabbit. When Danny accidentally breaks his crystal ball he blows his stack. In his rage he puts a spell on the boy that changes him into a ghost. It is at this point in the story that the player enters the scene. One of Danny's friends comes by looking for Danny. At the door the animals: Don Mouse, Flora the Fly and Harold the Dog offer to help search for Danny. With the help of the animals the player must now search for the whereabouts of Danny and try to piece the story together of what really took place. The game is at once the quest to find Danny and remove the spell, and the attempt to reconstruct the series of events that lead to his disappearance. If the player is successful the spell is removed and Danny is reunited with his parents. The yellow house once more becomes the happy place it used to be.

Boovie Future Games [top]

This Czech puzzle game was inspired by Quadrax and made by the developer that later went on to make The Black Mirror. Boovie is a remake of the 1994 ZX Spectrum game with the same name. It was released in the same year as the Spectrum sequel Boovie 2. The game consists of a series of single-screen platform levels where a sequence of actions needs to be completed to progress. This involves shooting and avoiding enemies, destroying blocks and moving blocks around. To complete a level a specific brick needs to be transported to the tile marked with an arrow. Boovie is the main character and he can move around freely. Rather than pure platforming with jumping, he can move over any square on the game screen as long as it is not obstructed, as if he were floating in the air. The plot has Boovie rescue his wife Lili who has been kidnapped. The couple lived happily on the outskirts of a town until a wealthy person decides to build a large mansion next to their house. When bricks disappears from the construction site, the foreman kidnaps Lili and demands the bricks as ransom. There's 40 progressively difficult levels full of enemies and logic puzzles. The game has three difficulty levels and controls are optimized with only cursor arrows. The game came out completely in English.

Bubsy 3D Twilight Games / Telstar Electronic Studios Ltd. [top]

The is a polygonal platformer, and one of the earlier games released domestically for the Sony PlayStation. It is a continuation of the Bubsy series, which debuted on the 16-bit platformers back in the early 1990s. The game's graphics are predominated by flat-shaded polygons. The gameplay is broken up into a series of stages. The typical goal is to find pieces of a broken spaceship. It is one of the first 3D platform games, though with limited movement. In 2013, a free fan-made Unity-based remake was done by Arcane Kids that takes some liberties with the original. Fortunately for surrealists, those liberties have Bubsy take a trip to the James Turrell Retrospective exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It's sometime after that when things get weird.

Captain Quazar Cyclone Studios / 3DO Company, The [top]

The idea behind Captain Quazar is simple - control the Captain, kill the bad guys and save the day. Everything in this huge galaxy can be blown away, but be careful where you lay waste, because you have to manage your resources to survive. The game is a tongue-in-cheek science fiction adventure. The player controls the titular character from a third-person, isometric view, (a not-too-bright, futuristic, Rambo-style law enforcement officer) as he crosses the galaxy on different missions for his irate police chief. The player is able to utilize a variety of futuristic and fantastical guns, missiles, and bombs. Different weapons can be picked up or bought at the beginning, and at certain places within each level. Enemies can also occasionally be interrogated for information, which can open up secret levels and items. The game only allows the player to save at the beginning of each level.

Claw Takarajimasha / Monolith [top]

Claw follows the adventures of Captain Nathaniel J. Claw, a swashbuckling tabby cat whose life's work has been the defeat of the Cocker Spaniard Armada. After the cats are defeated in battle, Claw is thrown into a dark dungeon to await his execution where he finds a hidden note that tells of the legendary Amulet of Nine Lives and a map that will locate it and its nine powerful gems. The gameplay is the standard jump and run, kill bad guys and get treasure. However, never in the history of PC gaming has this been executed with such polish. The 14 beautiful levels are straightforward but there are quite a few divergent pathways and an abundance of fun tricks of the terrain unique to each level. In the first few, as Claw escapes the dungeon, you encounter many different types of bad guys as well as ladders, swinging vines, pits lined with spikes, and the obligatory moving and vanishing platforms. Some of the gimmicks in later levels include pools of water with man-eating (cat-eating) fish, jets of steam to ride, and flowing lava to dodge. As for weapons, he begins with a pirate's sword, a loaded musket, a few sticks of dynamite, and a couple uses of his Magic Claw power. These weapons can be replenished along the way, and his sword can be upgraded for short periods of time to shoot fire, ice, and lightening bolts. There are also caches of catnip hidden throughout the levels which enable Claw to dispatch his enemies faster and jump much higher. Claw can throw objects or even other enemies as well. The music, graphics, sound effects, funny sayings and gameplay that gets more and more difficult towards the end are all top-notch. After level 3, each level takes hours to complete, so there's lots of gameplay available.

Croc: Legend of the Gobbos Argonaut Software / Fox Interactive [top]

This conversion (from the Sony PlayStation) of a 32-bit Mario 64 clone stars Croc, a cute big-eyed, backpack-wearing crocodile who has been raised by a race of ultra-cuddly Fry Guys called Gobbos - a race now enslaved by the giant "King of all Villains," Baron Dante. Croc must traverse the game's 40+ levels, liberating the entire race of Gobbos one at a time. At your disposal is a handful of standard 3D platform adventure gaming tricks. You've got Mario's jump to squash your enemies. You've also got a more original 360-degree spin where you lash at the bad guys with your tail. You've got Sonic the Hedgehog's rings - only this time they're crystals - that give you a second chance when attacked (get hit and you drop your crystals, get hit empty-handed and you die). You've also got lots and lots of platforms to jump on. For enemies, there's big-nosed loping birdmen, strangely elfin animals who attack by cartwheeling, and some of the most diminutive bosses in the history of the genre.

Dark Earth Microprose / Kalisto Entertainment [top]

One of the few action/adventure games that truly succeeded in appealing to fans of both camps, Krisalis' highly underrated Dark Earth is a great game that makes up for the short length with captivating artwork, a smooth interface that works well for both combat and adventure, and a very interesting and unique sci-fi/fantasy combination storyline. The world's first "realtime" adventure, attempts to redefine the genre by replacing killer puzzles with arcade-like combat sequences. On one hand, this decision has created a far more open-ended game and has eliminated the frustration typically associated with hard puzzles. On the other hand, it makes the game somewhat short - fully exploring this game is the work of days, not weeks. Fortunately, the story and setting are both excellent, and the combat system is fairly entertaining as well. 350 years in the future, the world has become completely unrecognisable following an encounter with a swarm of rogue meteorites. Centuries of sun-obscuring clouds have thrown the land into a perpetual icy twilight, leaving little more than strange, twisted creatures to roam the land. Dark Earth begins in the Stallite Sparta where Arkhan, member of the city militia, lives out a fairly routine existence. Not long into the game, fate places him in the midst of an assassination attempt - a plot he is able to foil only at great personal cost: in saving the ruler of his city, he finds himself exposed to an insidious poison. With the venom consuming both mind and body, Arkhan must search Sparta for a cure even as he slowly transforms into a creature of darkness. Along the way, his newly acquired monstrous powers will come in handy as he works also to stop an evil plan to extinguish the source of the Stallite's light. It cannot be overemphasised how well the graphics bring to life the detailed setting of this adventure. Throughout the game, backgrounds, objects and characters blend smoothly together to create scenes which are unique and strangely beautiful.

Deadly Rooms Of Death Webfoot Technologies, Inc. / TLK Games, Caravel Games [top]

Deadly Rooms of Death (more commonly known as DROD) is a unique puzzle game that is played in an environment that can be called a fantasy parody. Beethro Budkin is a Smitemaster in the fictional world of Eighth. His work is to slay various monsters in locations assigned. His latest employer is King Dugan, who has recklessly allowed his dungeon to become infested with all kinds of creatures, most notably, roaches. The quest is to eradicate them all. DROD features a distinct dose of satirical humour, with funny messages displayed at various places in the levels and between them - and, in the latest version, hilarious lines said by Beethro himself. What is DROD gameplay-wise? Basically, the player controls Beethro through a series of interconnected rooms and in an attempt to clear out the monsters, one has to learn the rules that they follow in order to move. This way, the player will be able to stay one step ahead of the critters and eventually vanquish them. Being turn based and providing the player with infinite amounts of lives, the game is clearly not about time management or arcade skills, but about carefully planning every single step. Release history for DROD is as follows: 1997 - original shareware release by Webfoot Technologies; 2002 - freeware release by Caravel Games, later upgraded to Architect's Edition with the ability to create custom level packs, or holds; 2003 - shareware release of a 3D remake by TLK Games; 2005 - commercial release by Caravel Games as DROD: King Dugan's Dungeon 2.0. Featuring all engine improvements from DROD 2.0 plus a fully voiced script and a new hold labeled The Choice, it's considered a Smitemaster's Selection, albeit it is standalone.

Detective Bogey Loudness / art & play GmbH [top]

This is a platformer based on the eponymous Spanish animated series. The player takes control over private detective Bogey who has to rescue his girlfriend Pandora from the evil Dr. Sinister. Bogey has a map which shows Sinister's hideout but it is encrypted, so he has to gather question marks in five worlds to decipher the map. The game itself offers typical platformer gameplay: The player walks and jumps through the side-scrolling levels and shoots enemies like snakes or grasshoppers with his pistol. If the enemies hit him too often he loses one of his lives. The question marks have to collected in a restricted order so there is a certain amount of backtracking. There is no time limit and defeated enemies leave symbols behind which regenerate health or give extra lives. Additionally extra lives can be gained in the bonus game, a horizontal shooter, which is played after every beaten world.

Dungeon Keeper Bullfrog Productions, Ltd. / Electronic Arts, Inc. [top]

Dungeon Keeper was a big change from the standard strategy games of the day. Instead of playing a good or misunderstood side, you were downright evil. You wanted to turn the world into living hell. This change of tone, and the subsequent change of gameplay to match, made it a very unusual addition to the world of RTS games. Not many other games have picked up the torch in regards to this, but the impact that was felt upon release was tremendous, and Dungeon Keeper is still highly regarded. It revolves around a dungeon keeper who seeks to turn the world above into a literal hell. In order to do this, he must kill all of the heroes in a particular area to deprive the townsfolk of protection, which then gives him free reign to expand upwards. You play this dungeon keeper, and this desire to corrupt the world above manifests itself as your campaign. You must use your gold to build a fortress and weapons to attack. As well as being able to rotate the 3D view, and control the light source, you can enter the direct viewpoints of your men, to see life through their eyes (one character's mode goes into black and white for this). The storyline is minimal at best, but manages to be incredibly funny and endearing, despite the fact that you are brutally murdering hundreds of innocents. Dungeon Keeper Gold contained the original game, Deeper Dungeons, the 3D patches, a game editor, and a desktop theme pack.

Electronic Popple ByteShock / Capcom U.S.A., Inc. [top]

This is an action/puzzle game. Play as MIN or MAX, two chips who must journey through six levels of a large computer to eventually defeat the evil Overclock King. Two players can play simultaneously. The game is similar in concept to fighting games such as Double Dragon. Players can walk, run, and jump to move around. The fighting is of the "combo-move" style, where the faster that a player can attack, the more hits they can achieve. The characters have a lot of attack moves: the "tread attack", "gathering power attack", "jump attack", "running attack", "running jump attack", "death blow attack", and "catching attack". Players must fight against computer components, such as fans, resistors, capacitors, batteries, and floppy disks. Later levels include monitors, screws, and nuts. These later characters have many more hit points and some have special powers, such as the ability of screws to replicate and turn into mines, or the nuts which can roll across the screen very quickly. Some enemies have different attacking styles, which must be mastered in order to defeat them. Defeated enemies drop special items that can be useful to the player, such as health restoring or speed punch. Sometimes enemies drop "popple". Popple is the "energy" that has turned all of the components into enemies. However, when the character absorbs the popple, the character becomes stronger. Once a character absorbs enough popple, the character increases in hit-points and fighting power. The levels are presented in isometric 3D, and the graphics have a cartoonish look, with some very humourous animations (such as the monitors, which look upwards and whistle innocently when a player is facing them, but advance in tip-toe steps and then jump on the player from behind). Along the way, players must defeat minor bosses, such as "Die HDD" and "Megatron", and there are in-game cut-scenes where friendly characters are introduced and whose dialogue advances the plot or provides hints. There are telephone boxes at various places through the game, which allows the player to save the state, provided that the phone card has been found first. However, upon reloading the level, all enemies will be resurrected each time, which can lead to some frantic play. For some reason, CAPCOM published this rare game only in several countries in Asia, and only shortly in the US.

Galapagos: Mendel's Escape Anark / Electronic Arts, Inc. [top]

Galapagos is a world of evil self-replicating robots. They have just created helpless Mendel, an insect-like little robot that will be the prototype of an army that will aid the Galapagos race to destroy all worlds in the universe. The player must help Mendel escape the industrial labyrinth where it was placed before it is too late... The game is really a series of dangerous environments that Mendel must go through in order to escape. What makes the game different is that Mendel has a bit of a mind of its own; in principle, its Artificial Intelligence can learn from deaths and not repeat mistakes, or become more neurotic after successive failures. The player instead controls the somewhat surreal environments Mendel is in, rather than Mendel itself, usually by clicking on switches that move platforms, disable force fields, activate jump pads, etc.

Graduation Headroom / Mixx Games [top]

Graduation is a Japanese anime "life-sim" game which are popular in Japan. Except for PrincessMaker 2, which was never officially released, this is the only game of its type known which was ever translated to English. You take the role of a homeroom teacher who is given the responsibility of teaching five girls in their last year of high school. You determine their class schedules, do guidance counseling, interfere with their weekend plans, and occasionally take to the streets to make sure they're not getting into trouble. Each of the girls have their own individual personality and problems, and the choices you make will determine whether they graduate from high school, what they do with their lives afterwards, and whether or not they wind up hating your guts. Get them all into top colleges and your boss will praise your genius. If they all flunk or wind up wanting to marry you, you'll obviously be fired. Despite what common sense and knowledge of the Japanese psyche might lead you to believe, this is not an adult (or hentai) game and there's no nudity and only an average amount of anime sexploitation.

Grand Theft Auto DMA Design Limited / ASC Games [top]

In the first in this popular action series, the player takes the role of a small-time criminal trying to make it big with the mob. Stealing cars, doing jobs for the gangsters and behaving generally anti-social are the way to success. The action moves through six levels spread over three different cities, each based on a real US city: Liberty City (based on New York City), San Andreas (based on San Francisco) and Vice City (based on Miami). To finish a level, a certain score must be reached. Stealing cars and crashing into traffic, driving over pedestrians and killing cops all raise the score, but the big points are made through jobs. Answering phones or entering special cars brings mission assignments, from simple "ditch-a-hot-car" jobs to supporting bank robberies or carrying out assassinations. Completing a mission will raise the score substantially and also increase the score multiplier, so that completing the next felony will gain even more points. Criminal behavior comes with a price of course: if policemen witness a crime, the player's wanted level rises. At the lowest level, a single police car might give chase, whereas at the highest level whole car squads hunt the player, the police set up roadblocks and shoot to kill. The only way to evade the cops is to find a respray shop and get a new paint job with new license plates. This costs money which is deducted from the score, however. But even dying or being arrested are not the end. The player has several lives, and ending up in jail simply results in being stripped of all weapons and armor and the score multiplier being lowered. The entire action is viewed from a top-down perspective, which zooms out while driving a car, for a better overview at high speeds. The cities are many screens large and can be freely explored. Crates are scattered over the cities, which might include weapons (from pistols to rocket launchers), armor or other bonus items: extra lives, police bribes (used to reduce the wanted level to zero) and get-out-of-jail-free cards (used to retain score multiplier and weapons when busted). Dozens of different vehicles are available for the taking, each with unique characteristics: a bus will handle very differently than a sports car. The game, with its violent subject matter, generated a great deal of controversy. However, this was deemed to be intentional, and was the first game known to have been publicised in such a way. As a way of saying thank you to the many fans of the series, Rockstar released a freeware version of GTA1 in March/2003 on its website, updated to support the latest operating systems and Direct X software.

Haunted Casino William R. Fisher, Crystalvision Software / Micro Star [top]

From the maker of Last Half Of Darkness comes this game with a series of casino games with a plot. It has brief video cutscenes and point-and-click mechanics where you wander the casino into different rooms which offer several games such as poker and craps. It's set in an abandoned and haunted casino. A man who lost all his money at Madame Zuinga's Hotel & Casino left a mysterious necklace in the casino. He had tried to pawn the necklace without success. He summoned spirits from the dark world to get revenge for what the casino had done to him. The necklace sat untouched for some time, until Mira, one of Madame Zuinga's daughters found it. Now the spirits run the casino in an attempt to recover the man's lost fortune. You have arrived at the casino with one mission: starting with $1000, you must break the bank (by winning $500000) and thereby lift the curse. The movement in the game is similar to that in the 7th Guest, first person perspective: click left to go left to whatever room. You must play a variety of casino games to win the money. It was also offered free when you purchase the 1999 version of Last Half of Darkness.

Head Rush Berkeley Systems, Jellyvision Games, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

Head Rush takes the gameplay and style of the You Don't Know Jack series and creates a teen-angled trivia game with it. The basic format of the game is the same as in the YDKJ, the major difference being a shift from sexual humor to toilet humor and a change in art style to cartoons. Greatly resembling You Don't Know Jack: The Ride, HeadRush is filled with entirely new graphics, new questions, and new ways to either make the grade or louse it up. Each player is now assigned a color instead of a number, and each player also gets to choose their representative icon from a field of six. Questions are worth approximately ten times as much in HeadRush as in You Don't Know Jack, and games are limited to eleven questions.

Hercules Eurocom Entertainment Software / Buena Vista Games [top]

Hercules is the requisite game based on the Disney animated movie. Get ready to battle your way through three ancient words, ten challenging stages and a hoard of mythological monsters. First hone your skills in the Hero's Gauntlet obstacle course. Jump through fire hoops, dodge obstacles like swinging pendulums and more. Save Meg from the evil Nessus. Use your reflective shield to stop Medusa's beams from turning you to stone. Fly on Pegasus and use special gifts to defeat Hades and his minions. Hidden areas, Hercules power-ups and magical weapons ensure hours of replayability. The game includes actual sequences from the film. The use of the Z-axis lets Hercules move in and out of background scenery, giving the game a pseudo 3-D look and feel. The other feature that truly makes Hercules fun is the constant interaction that Herc has with his surroundings. For instance, you must use Herc's amazing strength to pick up giant boulders to throw at enemies or use Herc's powerful fists to knock columns and other obstacles out of your way.

In the sorting games, players must sort a number of objects into categories. These categories are not named but must be inferred from the objects already in place. One game uses the treasures players gain for solving other games in the program. In 2000, it was reissued as I Spy: School Days with "dozens of new challenges" mostly that take place in one single game: Codebreaker.

Incredible Hulk, The: The Pantheon Saga Attention to Detail Limited / Eidos, Inc. [top]

This isometric 3D action game, has the popular Marvel comic book hero The Hulk battling tons of lowly enemies and the occasional monstrous super-villain. When the lawful Pantheon society of superheroes kidnaps the green giant, he joins forces with his abductors and smashes through 13+2 isometric 3D levels (in a look reminiscent of the Loaded series of games). True to the comic books, the Hulk relies on no other weapons than his massive muscles to punch, kick and crush his enemies. When he has accumulated enough gamma energy, he may use powerful special moves like a Vortex Spin or the Floor Hammer. Rare bonus items also allow the Hulk to summon one of the four Pantheon team members Atalanta, Ulysses, Ajax and Hector to assist in the thick of battle. Most levels include at least one arch-enemy, such as Piecemeal, Trauma & Lazarus or the U-Foes. Luckily, the Hulk's regenerative powers allow him to regain health slowly. Little seems to be left of the Hulk's legendary leaping capacity, however, so the green meat ball is forced to hop from platform to platform every now and then.

Judge Dredd is a platform action game based on the British comic book character of the same name and the 1995 movie that tarnished that name. The game was a multi system release so it fits the standard console jump/shoot/duck formula although it does add some unique twists such as wounding enemies so that they surrender and can be arrested. The initial levels follow the plot of the movie with futuristic lawman Judge Dredd framed and sent to the Aspen penal colony from which he must escape and prove his innocence. Following the fight at the top of the Statue of Liberty that ended the film, the game continues on with levels and characters inspired by the comic book culminating with a battle against the Dark Judges on Deadworld.

Leo the Lion is a platformer from Poland starring - well, Leo the lion. Think of the game as Disney's Lion King, minus good cartoons and interesting gameplay. So what is left?

There are simply far too many better games around, including Disney's long line of platformers and Monolith's highly underrated Claw. One to avoid, unless you want to collect every game ever made.

Leonardo da Vinci: The Codex Leicester Corbis Publishing [top]

When Microsoft Chairman William H. Gates III plunked down $31.8 million to buy a Leonardo da Vinci notebook from the Armand Hammer Museum in 1994, the art world was horrified. The Codex Hammer was one of only 20 such notebooks left by the Renaissance master, and it was about to disappear forever into private hands. It turns out that the worries were overblown. Instead of renaming the document Codex Microsoft as some feared, Gates restored its traditional name of Codex Leicester, for the British noble family that owned it. And now Corbis, Gates's private art-licensing company, has turned the masterpiece into a CD-ROM that's a fitting tribute to a genius who was frustrated by the limitations of 16th century technology. Along the way, Corbis accomplished something very interesting. Most art CDs necessarily diminish the works they represent. Even an offering as well done as Corbis' Passion for Art can't deliver the impact of a massive Matisse dance mural when it is transferred to the small screen. But Leonardo da Vinci actually enhances the work it depicts. The reason is simple. Once you get past the wonder of looking at a page written in Leonardo's hand, there's not much you can do. Few of us read Renaissance Italian, and fewer still can decipher the curious right-to-left mirror script in which the codex is written. The Leonardo CD offers an ingenious solution by providing a number of ways to view the pages. Clicking a ''mirror'' button reverses the writing, leaving everything else on the page untouched. So if you understand the language, you can read the text in Leonardo's fine Italian hand. Click the ''transcription'' button, and the handwriting is replaced by printed Italian, with the exquisite drawings intact and Leonardo's script faintly visible in the background. Click the ''English'' button, and the text magically changes into English. And the codex makes rewarding, if challenging, reading. The ideas are complex, and the pre-Newtonian approach to astronomy, hydraulics, and optics--the main topics of the codex--can be obscure. Fortunately, the CD, which [was] released in conjunction with an exhibit of the codex at New York's American Museum of Natural History, includes a number of ''tours,'' in which text, narration, animation, and occasional videos are used to explain Leonardo's ideas. Even when wrong, as when arguing that the moon is covered with water, he is fascinating. The CD also features sections putting Leonardo's work in the larger context of the Renaissance. Other treats are a gallery including 18 Leonardo paintings and dozens of sketches and pages from other codices.

Lucky Luke Infogrames [top]

Lucky Luke is a relatively obscure 2D side-scrolling platformer designed by Infogrames based on a popular Belgian comic. Lucky Luke is a Western cowboy and your job as the good sheriff is to restore order to town. It sports colorful cartoony graphics, fluid animations, and funny antics that fans of the comic will recognize. If you enjoy the likes of Pitfall, Jungle Book, or Infogrames' other licensed cartoon platformers (most notably the Tintin series), you will probably also like this lesser known game. It offers a solid plot, crisp graphics and sound effects, as well as a challenging but fun gameplay. Too bad the variety of gameplay is not as good as Tintin games.

Marble Drop Maxis South / Maxis Software Inc. [top]

This is an object based puzzle game similar to a cross between The Incredible Machine and Pachinko. Players are given an initial set of 42 marbles divided evenly into six colors. These marbles are picked up and dropped by the player into funnels leading to a series of rails, switches, traps and other devices which grow more complex as the game progresses. The aim is to ensure that marbles arrive in the bin with the same color as the marble. Players must determine how the marble will travel through the puzzle, and how its journey will change the puzzle for the next marble. When a marble runs over certain sections of the puzzle, the paths are possibly re-routed or cut-off, temporarily or permanently. For example, if the marble runs over a button, it might activate a diverter that sends the next marble down a different path. There are 50 puzzles in all, including 5 bonus puzzles which can only be accessed via combination locks which appear in certain puzzles. Each puzzle is decorated with very nice Leonardo-esque sketches. Explanatory notes in da Vinci's handwriting form part of the background, informing the player of new pieces of equipment and their effects. At the end of each puzzle, the marbles guided into their proper bins are returned to the player. Lost marbles must be purchased when they are needed to complete a puzzle. Steel balls are 20% the price of colored marbles, and can be used as test marbles or to help release a catch instead of using a valuable colored marble. Black marbles are very expensive, but acquire the correct color when they arrive in the target bin.

Nightmare Creatures Kalisto Entertainment SA / Activision Publishing [top]

This is a nice looking 3rd-person action adventure game that's chock full of bloody, button-pounding mayhem in which you set out to vanquish an evil scientist bent on turning the world into a fiend-infested deathtrap. This port of the PlayStation game has huge monsters you have to fight at every bend, ranging from zombies to werewolves to giant beetles, and are terrifically detailed, fast, and ferocious. And either of the two tough characters at your command, the staff-wielding priest Ignatius and the young swordswoman Nadia, looks like an even enough match for them. Best of all, though, is the scenery, which really brings nineteenth-century London to life: A lazy fog hangs just above the stone streets; street lamps flicker, casting a calm light on their surroundings; rivers and waterways look placid and the homes lining their banks are quaint and almost inviting. Each of the dozen-odd stages in Nightmare Creatures looks different and feels real, yet the washed-out color palette used throughout the game lends everything a dreary appearance. The controls though are frustrating...rotating is slow while enemies move fast. You can't save in each level either and must move through levels fast because if you don't defeat enemies fast enough you die as your adrenaline level keeps decreasing.

In this excellent sequel to The Lost Vikings, the three brothers (Erik the Swift, Baleog the Fierce and Olaf the Stout) are trying to get back home and you need to guide them through. Two brand new characters (Fang the Werewolf and Scorch the Dragon) also join the fray. As in The Lost Vikings, Norse by Norsewest is a great puzzle game that plays like a perfect blend of The Humans and Lemmings: each character has their own special talents that must be used in concert, often with very precise timing, in order to pass the obstacles and go to the next level. I don't want to spoil the plot or the surprises here, so let's just say that if you think you've seen it all in The Lost Vikings, Norse by Norsewest is bigger, better, and much more devious than the first game.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Oddworld Inhabitants / GT Interactive [top]

In this great side-scroller puzzle adventure, you play a slave named Abe who works at the meat-processing plant Rupture Farms. Abe's a Mudokon, a gangly, orange-eyed, green-skinned creature with a samurai's tuft of hair and the posture of an ape - hardly your typically cute platform hero. The premise is that the factory's owners have found a tasty new treat to whip into production since they ran their last "dish" into extinction. The problem is the new entree is you and the Mudokons. When an eavesdropping Abe finds this out, he seeks to escape Rupture Farms, liberating as many fellow Mudokons as possible, finding a way to bring down the plant once and for all. Using the limited vocabulary set, Abe must convince the Mudokons to follow him to safety, all the while racing through the factory flipping switches, avoiding obstacles, evading heavily armed guards, and staying alive. While other games promise a variety of enemies and enemy AI, Oddworld delivers. You never really die, you simply start back at the beginning of the section you were in after dying. The puzzles are logical, challenging, and must be timed properly in some cases. The graphics look super also. It'sa fun game for all age groups.

Oregon Trail 3rd Edition The Learning Company, Inc. [top]

This game hearkens back to the days of the first Oregon Trail, meaning that instead of tons of options that made up Oregon Trail 2, there are significantly less in this installment. There is only one place you can go to (besides the fact you can stop anywhere), which is Oregon City. You can also only have five or so people in your group. You can hunt, and you can fish, which is a new gameplay element. You can also go down the Dalles River in a first-person view (along with floating across rivers.). Gameplay still centers on finding your way across the United States, beginning in Independence, Missouri, after choosing traveling companions, forming a party, outfitting the group, and joining a wagon train. Possible partners include occupations such as blacksmiths, farmers, nurses, midwives, merchants, artists, prospectors and more, and careful consideration must be given to the tools, weapons, clothing, medicine and general supplies bought before the trip. Morale, pace, rations and safety, as well as the ability to catch game and find edible plants along the way are important aspects of surviving The Oregon Trail. More than 100 "real-life" events can be encountered during the westward journey, including broken wagon wheels or axles, illnesses, severe weather, buffalo stampedes, trading posts, landmarks, nefarious individuals, and so forth. The objective of the game is to reach Oregon City in about five to six months of trail time, with the reward commensurate to the amount of luck, skill and time it took to complete the trip. The three CD-set special collector's edition includes a fairly thick hardbound Adventure Journal with blank pages and a "Time To Hit The Trail" wristwatch in the straw-filled box.

Pandemonium 2 Crystal Dynamics, Inc. / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This is a solid sequel to Pandemonium, one of the best platform games ever created. Although more evolutionary than revolutionary, it offers the same addictive gameplay as the original, with even better graphics. The game begins where the first game left off. The Comet of Infinate Possibilities has returned and encased within is a source of magic with unlimited power. An aspiring sorceress called Nikki wants to harness that power to become the world's greatest sorceress. Meanwhile, Fargus (lead character from the first game) has slowly degenerated to being almost completely insane, and Queen Zorrscha is using her minions to build a fleet of rockets to fly her to the comet. In a twist to most "kill evil, save world" plots, your quest is to stop the Queen from using the comet's power to.... bring freedom and happiness to the land. That's right - you are the bad guys in Pandemonium 2, and it's the quirky humor such as this that makes the game (and every other Crystal Dynamic title, for that matter) unique and a lot of fun to play. You control either Nikki or Fargus, each of whom has unique abilities. Fargus starts off with a weapon called Sid, the talking stick (also sidekick) which can be controlled like a remote-controlled missile after being thrown. Fargus also has a spin attack, although it is not as fun to use as Sid. Nikki does not start out with a weapon other than jumping on people's head. She can, however, collect various magic spells that allow her to throw different projectiles. Nikki also can do a double-jump which allows her to reach higher heights than Fargus. This makes the game somewhat replayable, as one character can access areas the other cannot. In short, it offers all the gameplay and control one could ask for in a platformer. The game looks great in 3D, with graphics that rival its Playstation version (which was much more successful than this PC one). If you enjoy the first game, you will definitely enjoy this sequel. If you like action games but have not heard of either games, you are missing out on two of the most unique and entertaining games ever made for the PC.

Perfect Weapon LTI Gray Matter / ASC Games [top]

Captain Blake Hunter is a top agent in the Earth Command Defense Forces and one heck of a martial artist. One day, Hunter was mysteriously transported to unknown regions of an alien universe. As Hunter, you'll explore five alien moons crawling with deadly critters and uncharted territory. As a third-person fighting adventure, Perfect Weapon has loads of martial arts maneuvers to master, aliens to destroy and options to select. Each moon has specific alien organisms and terrain -- whereas the sub-arctic Ice Moon is crawling with savage Icemen and the ferocious Alopex, the Proteus Moon features genetically altered mutants in a technological setting. Other moons include the Garden Moon complete with Shaolin Monks, a Forest Moon and the blazingly hot Desert Moon; there's well over 1,300 rendered environments in which to interact! Additionally, you'll fight over 20 unique alien races throughout the adventure. While the main focus of gameplay is fighting, there is some exploration and adventuring elements included. When there's no enemies around, you can do one of three things: take a gander at your surroundings, relax your body, or practice new maneuvers. Practicing the moves is highly important for succession and the destruction of alien bad guys. Hunter's moves include a devastating scissors and sweep kick, various punches and grabs, tackles, throws, and a ferocious roundhouse combination; there are over 100 martial arts maneuvers to master. Located throughout the moons are helpful items including keys to unlocked doors, health pickups, and a map beacon that displays one quarter of the current map area. There's also a detector that reveals hidden items, power gloves that increase Hunter's damage, a transmitter that disables lasers and protective armor useful in battle.

Planeta Vermelho [Pt] Estelar Software / Maxissoft [top]

This rare game was developed entirely in Portuguese in Brazil for which only 3000 copies were produced and distribution was made on newsstands in the city of Goiânia (GO). Red Planet has two astronauts sent to Mars in a powerful spaceship and on route they surpass the speed of light, and due to that they go back 65 million years in time and reach the planet Mars only to be captured by an alien spaceship. One of the astronauts is trapped inside a mountain and must get out to look for his friend and his spaceship, and on his path he will be faced with different obstacles and puzzles, such as a giant reptile, leaping chasms on the mountain, destroy alien spaceships with your laser gun, etc. At the halfway point he finds an alien spacecraft and uses it to fight other ships at a stage where it will take 1000 points to destroy the mothership. After this stage you enter a sphinx with several levels in the style of Prince of Persia game, where you must uncover several puzzles to find your spaceship and return to Earth. At the end of the game, the astronauts discover the cause of the extinction of the dinosaurs on Earth! The author later made the game available for free.

Rampage World Tour Game Refuge Inc. / Midway Games, Inc. [top]

This is an updated version of the classic arcade game Rampage. It starts off at Scumlabs International where three lab technicians, George, Lizzy, and Ralph have mutated in an accident involving toxic waste. George has turned into a gigantic ape, Lizzy a gigantic lizard or dinosaur, and Ralph some sort of gigantic wolf. The three destroy the lab they previously worked at and then embark on a path of destruction encompassing the entire globe. The player chooses one of these three characters and begins destroying buildings, eating civilians, knocking planes out of the sky, and stepping on tanks. The ultimate goal of the game is to rid the world of Scumlabs by traveling to the cities where they are located. Being creatures of such massive size, there are many cities that must be destroyed along the way. Scumlabs and the various militaries make it a priority to destroy you and optionally another player that can play simultaneously. The graphics are worth noting as they are of a unique, colorful "cartoon" flavor. Gameplay includes players climb buildings while punching, kicking, and eating their inhabitants to destroy them. Once all the buildings for a particular stage have been destroyed, the stage is clear and players proceed to the next stage. Players can get many different kinds of power-ups that make them more powerful or restore health.

Rayman Designer / Rayman Gold / Rayman's World Ubi Soft Entertainment Software [top]

Rayman Designer is a PC sequel to the original Rayman game, which features 24 new maps called Rayman's New Levels, and a program called Rayman Mapper that enables players to create their own levels, or play levels downloaded from others. Gameplay in the 24 official levels, as well as new ones created by fans, occurs in the same six worlds as the original Rayman game, but does not involve finding cages and freeing the Electoons inside. Instead, Rayman must collect 100 blue Tings to make the exit sign appear, a task that also involves collecting Tings of various other colours to make other items appear or disappear (most often platforms or blocking sprites, respectively). Together with the original game, Rayman Designer is included in Rayman Gold, Rayman Forever and Rayman Collector.

Sonic 3D Blast / Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island Traveller's Tales Ltd. / SEGA of America, Inc. [top]

While visiting Flicky Island, Sonic notices that the Flckies, his small, feathered friends, were captured and turned into badniks (the robot enemies of Sonic) by Dr. Robotnik in his never ending quest for the Chaos Emeralds, as they live and are able to travel between parallel worlds. Seven levels separate Sonic from the final showdown with Robotnik. Sonic 3D was the last Sonic title released for the Mega Drive, the only platforming presence of the blue blur in the Sega Saturn and one or the rare presences in Personal Computers. The title, considering the era it was released, is somewhat misleading, as instead of full blown 3D graphics it uses an isometric view where Sonic can move not only forwards and backwards, but also left and right. Gameplay is much slower when compared to other games in the series, and the number of badniks is reduced to five on each section. As usual, when Sonic destroys one badnik, one creature leaps free from it's insides, but this time Sonic has to pick him up and lead them to an interdimensional ring. While they can be taken one by one, exploring the level with all five allow the player to reach for otherwise inaccessible continue tokens. Unlike all other previous games, time isn't a requirement: if the player completes a level in more than 10 minutes, it would only mean there would be no time bonus at the end. Finally, to collect all seven Chaos Emeralds, Sonic first must find Tails or Knuckles and offer them at least 50 rings.

Star Trek Encyclopedia Simon & Schuster Interactive / Immergy [top]

The Star Trek Encyclopedia - A Reference Guide to the Future is the "definitive" Star Trek reference, compiled by the production staff and officially recognized by Paramount Pictures. The software allows the user to call up commands to the computer with the use of a microphone. An extensive training program is required before use, so that the computer will recognize the user's voice. For added authenticity, the user can address the "Computer" and it will reply with a beep before proceeding with the request. Majel Barrett provides the voice of the computer and Mark Lenard narrates several featured topics illustrated with diagrams and imagery. These include biographies of James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek production history, The history of the Enterprise and the history of the future. The 1997 release (known simply as the Star Trek Encyclopedia) which came on 4 CD-ROMs was updated to include information up to DS9 Season 5, VOY Season 3 and the film Star Trek: First Contact. The last 1999 release (on two CDs) covers up to the end of DS9 Season 7, VOY Season 5 and the film Star Trek: Insurrection. The software could also access the Next Generation and Deep Space Nine Companion CD-ROMs released the same year for additional content (namely the video clips).

Star Wars:Yoda Stories LucasArts [top]

This is the second and last LucasArts Desktop Adventure title released. In the Star Wars timeline, it's placed between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of Jedi, where Luke Skywalker is completing his training with Jedi Master Yoda. Unlike other titles, it has no central plot or definitive goal - it's a mere collection of games where the player, controlling Luke Skywalker has to complete an objective like rescuing Han Solo or Princess Leia, obtaining an object or warning the Rebellion in several locations in the Star Wars universe like Hoth, Tatooine or the Forest moon of Endor. The game received poor reviews at the time of its release, mostly because critics decided to review it as a regular game, rather than a "quick break" replacement to games like Solitaire or Hearts. Graphics are simple bitmaps and regular 32x32 icons, with few animations. Each game starts with Luke arriving at Dagobah in a X-Wing. If the player is still a rookie, R2-D2 can be picked up, and dropped anytime for hints. After finding Yoda, he gives Luke one assignment and one object that will be required to complete it, and the game begins. Each gameworld is composed by 100 screens, but how many are active can be set in the options. To progress in the game, the player has to make errands, such as finding a key, or an object, until he reaches the final puzzle. The Force is also present, but in the beginning it must be obtained from the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi. It stops all enemies from moving, and is occasionally required to complete a puzzle. There are several enemies, from Imperial Stormtroopers and Tusken Raiders to animals, and all can be dealt accordingly with Luke's lightsaber, blasters or thermal detonators (that destroy any enemies in a 3-diameter plus sign pattern). As Luke can be also hurt, there are several ways to replenish his health (measured by a pie chart) from health kits and bacta canisters to plants. In the fifth game, Luke battles Darth Vader, and if successful, the next game he starts with a green lightsaber instead of his father's blue; after 10, he starts with the Force and finally, after 15 times, with a "Spirit Heart", which gives the player a second life. Unlike Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures, Yoda Stories keeps the number of games beaten and also the highest score.

Super Apocalypse Warriors Magnet & Cosmic '98 [top]

This is a rare and strikingly beautiful arcade game that largely resembles classic cartoon platformers, but the gameplay is much more close to the arcade puzzles like Lode Runner. The action takes place in perhaps more futuristic than a post-apocalyptic world with our hero - a soldier with a gun. However, this is only in the beginning as later levels have you control a small tank with the soldier. Despite the luxurious graphics, the game is almost entirely two-dimensional. On the game screen in addition to the hero is a certain amount of enemies, as well as stairs, transitions, and other structures. The main task is not to kill all the enemies, but to find a way to the next level. And sometimes it is very difficult and requires thinking, in fact - sometimes part of the path you will literally create yourself, by making a hole in any surface. Enemies in the game are extremely strong and unusual, all mechanical. There are quite weak robots that do not stand out and are easily killed, and also (and at the beginning of the game) huge robotic spiders and robots gorillas, which are much bigger and stronger and kill the hero of which are very difficult or even impossible. You should try to avoid contact with these, as they take a significant part of your life. Nevertheless, the enemies usually (but not always) do not tend to follow the hero, and move on "their" routes. However, sometimes it happens that some robot will climb the stairs. It is worth noting that almost everything in the game is destructible - nothing prevents you to unleash a shot at the floor at the underfoot of enemy, so that he falls to the "floor" below. But despite the fact that each level is just one screen, the game is still very, very hard. Of course, the game has a variety of bonuses and huge robots bosses (they are the only enemies in "their" levels, but it is difficult to deal with them). Graphically, as has been said, the game is simply gorgeous - it is one of the most technologically powerful games for DOS. The quality of drawing and animation can surprise even now.

Tonko 3 [K] TWIM [top]

This third in the series of cute platformers seeks to strike a middle ground between the first two games. Trash cans and toilets are back, but so is the hammer, and with it several other powerful weapons. More often than not it's still more effective to play hide-and-seek with the bugs and other enemies, as Tonko still dies with but a single hit, and he always loses his valuable weapon in the process. The game is still divided between screens, but now it is possible and sometimes necessary to go back, as puzzle solutions lie stretched out over multiple screens. In concept, Tonko 3 seems like the most wholesome of the series, but it takes a step back from its direct predecessor in more than one aspect. The music sounds much less inspired, now really reminiscent of cheap Win95 demo midis, and the physics don't seem well thought out at all. It is not possible to pick up floating coins by jumping from the ground, even if Tonko's sprite is clearly touching them. Worse are the moving platforms, though, as Tonko doesn't move along when standing on them. That doesn't only feel awkward, it also makes many platforming passages a big nuisance.

Virtual Nightclub, The Prospect Management / Philips Interactive Media, Thumb Candy Ltd [top]

When you're up for a wild night on the town, you might slither through the window of a nightclub in London packed with groups, famous people, art exhibitions and a melange of offbeat videos. It won't be necessary to call a travel agent, however. Just switch on a computer equipped with a CD-ROM drive or a television with a CD player and slip into the world's first nightclub on a disc. Called The Virtual Nightclub, it offers a kaleidoscopic swath of London night life in high-resolution computer graphics that will hold hours of interactive leisure reality. It's somewhere between MTV and a video game, a product that combines interactive technology with cutting-edge sounds. The interactive element allows viewers to use a mouse to navigate their way around as they choose. They begin on the London streets, then click-walk around the corner into the club's 3-D interior. Though interactivity means users can choose when and how to navigate artificial spaces, virtual nightclubbers will have to sit through occasional advertisements. It has a cast of more than 150 characters, dancers, actors and voice over artists. Those agreeing to appear as themselves included: Mark Wigan, Terrence Mckenna, Scanner, Matt Black, Eva Pascoe, James Lavelle, Redma and Neal Stephenson among others. Music labels involved included: Def Jam, Warp, R&S, Apollo, Sounds of the Underground, Island, Moving Shadow, Ninja Tune, Gee Street and ITP providing artists like Herbie Hancock, Jo Henderson, PM Dawn, Redman, the Stereo MCs, Benny Rait, Cru and Suga. It exists only on demonstration discs. The prototype was on a European tour to pick up sponsors and fans on big screens at electronic arts festivals. But, Philips Interactive Media went out of business with their CD-I console before the game was released in retail. Thumb Candy purchased back the rights to the VNC and marketed the VNC directly via the Sci-Fi Channel and the internet.

X-COM: Apocalypse Mythos Games Ltd. / MicroProse Software, Inc. [top]

By the year 2084, only one city on Earth can support human life: Mega-Primus. The rest of the planet has been contaminated from past wars with aliens, resulting in an atmosphere filled with deadly toxins and a completely altered climate. Mega-Primus was built as the solution to this disaster, functioning as a self-contained city that would shield its people from the environmentally ravaged planet. While everything was peaceful for decades, recent increases in violence and crime suggest that something is wrong. If that weren't enough, sightings of UFOs have picked up and people are starting to flee to other colonies. It's only a matter of time before complete chaos erupts! Sensing this danger, the Senate has secretly agreed to support an investigation to determine if aliens are indeed behind the unrest. This is the third game in the X-COM series on the PC. You must once again lead the X-COM unit to investigate the mysterious happenings from an isometric viewpoint, only this time it's set within a futuristic city. Send your squad into various buildings (after first assigning them to vehicles such as hovercars) to either find evidence of the alien presence or engage in combat to retrieve their technology. Your goal is to recover as many artifacts as possible so your scientists can find ways to defeat the aliens once and for all. Differences from the previous games in the series include reworked graphics, larger maps, a more complex world, and the possibility of choosing between real-time or turn-based tactical combat. Also, instead of just engaging aliens, the player will also have to deal with multiple human factions, from a cult that worships alien invaders to gangs, from industrial giants to security forces.

You Don't Know Jack Television Jellyvision Games, Inc. / Berkeley Systems [top]

Do you think you know a lot about television? Well, here's the perfect way to test your knowledge of 50 years of television. From one to three players butt heads and brains as they go at it, answering questions on categories as varied as I Love Lucy and Mork from Ork. Games consist of from 7 to 21 questions in three rounds. The first two rounds have an equal number of questions, while the third round is a single question known as The Jack Attack. Each round is worth a varying number of points, while the Jack attacks asks players to make seven matches, with 2000 points awarded for each right answer and the same amount subtracted every time the player is wrong. Each of the first two rounds consists mostly of multiple choice questions with a sprinkling of gibberish questions, Dis or Dats, Picture Questions, Fill in the Blanks, and Whatshisname questions. If players are playing with someone else instead of by themselves, each is given a screw. These can be used with most of the multiple choice questions but not gibberish questions. Typing "s" after buzzing in allows players to "screw their neighbor," forcing them to answer the question. If they get it wrong, they lose the points. If they get it right, however, the player who used the screw loses the points.

You Don't know Jack Volume 3 Berkeley Systems, Jellyvision Games, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

Learn the true meaning of the term "irreverence" as you and up to two of your friends are confronted with off-the-wall multiple choice questions, the first person to buzz in getting to answer. Multiple choice isn't the only type of question asked, though. You'll also get "Gibberish Questions," in which you must rhyme a nonsensical sentence with a common saying; "DisOrDats," where a player must categorize clues into one of two totally unrelated categories; and various types of fill in the blank questions. New to this version are the "ThreeWay Question" (a fast-paced, mid-game lightning round) and the aptly named "Impossible Question." As with the previous two volumes, YDKJ3 ends with a climactic lightning round called the "Jack Attack." Also, once per round players have the ability to "screw their neighbors," meaning that they will force an opponent to answer a question. As you play the game (either in its 7- or 21-question format), prepare for some pretty blunt, often insulting comments from the host. He's always there to let you know that you don't know Jack. Master four new question types: Super Audio, Guest Host, Impossible, and ThreeWay. It features 800 new questions. Listen to the smarmy antics of new host Cookie Masterson. A Censored Edition of the game was offered in boxed of Cheerios cereal and as part of "Brain Food Games Two" compilation.

AweSome Animated Monster Maker Houghton Mifflin Interactive / ImaginEngine Corp. [top]

Awesome Animated Monster Maker is a children's creative play computer video game program on CD-ROM, produced by ImaginEngine and published by Houghton-Mifflin's interactive Division in 1994. It was one of the first pieces of software made for young children, especially in the 2-5 age range. In Monster Maker, users create a monster by sticking together animated parts. Each part has several states to it: happy, sad, angry, etc. When a monster is happy or sad, all of its various parts animate together in the new state. Once a monster is created, one can play a variety of games and activities with it, such as making music, getting clothing and accessories, or printing it out. Monster Maker was designed for creative play, like a paint program. There were no overarching goals other than to have fun. Shortly after the first version, ImaginEngine released a follow-up called the Ultra Edition. It added four mini-games one can play with a monster, including judo and a water skiing race.

Dr. Seuss Living Books: Cat In The Hat Broderbund Software / Mattel Interactive [top]

Designed for kids 3-7 years of age, this game is a wonderful way to introduce kids to both Dr. Seuss and to the Computer. After a dancing Cat in the Hat introduction, you have a choice of 2 ways to experience the book. The first is called 'Read To Me', and the story is read aloud with each of the characters speaking in a different voice while you watch the action take place. The second way, 'Let Me Play', is interactive. The story is still read to you one page at a time in the same way, but in addition you can now click on anything in the picture on that page and funny, unexpected things happen. For example, a duck may come in the front door complaining about the rain or a ball may bounce around the room, and you will hear applause if it bounces into the trash basket. The face on a picture may dissolve and you will have to put the ears and eyes and nose back in the right place. There is a hidden character on each page, and you can keep giving the cat more and more things to balance. The text is printed on each page to help develop beginning reading skills and word recognition. If you click on a particular word, that word is repeated. And many words are animated, with a picture of the word which reacts when clicked on.

Happy Birthday 2 [Ru] Nikita [top]

This is basically a port of the first game to Windows 95. The plot remained almost intact, but some pleasant changes will occur. Due to numerous requests, voiced speech was added in Russian (language can be selected during installation), so it means that the game can now be appreciated by the smallest children - not only can they watch the process, but also hear the familiar words. Music (at 15 tracks) is decidedly separate in a game folder. Several increases to the speed of the game: Finney the Bear became faster and move to locations and puzzles now requires more care and response. By the way, some of the locations look different: tree fruit can be seen all at once to appreciate the location of fruits and berries, the gift shop became more spacious, and even the dwarf salesperson changed. Also added is a new location - the developers kept their promise and built inside the old oak, a magic school! There you just need to go to go to study in four classes and pass exams. The reward for each of them will be new English words (or Russian - maybe a child will find something new?) And additional gifts are in the store, the contents of which, incidentally, are different. In short, the game has become much nicer and cozier - there are beautiful backgrounds in the form of sky and mountains, adding new items and word learning. Musical score remained the same - fabulous and very atmospheric. So, dear parents, sit down comfortably in front of the monitor together with their children, and study the small world with its great wonders.

Part of a series of Australian non-violent CDs based on biblical themes, Jonah and the Whale targets young shavers of three years and upwards. It's a bright, colourful program, with lots of fun activities, and a pervading zany wit. What's more, the characters speak with thoroughly Australian accents. The program revolves around the classic story of Jonah and the whale. Despite his daggy, old-fashioned gown, the Jonah in the story is a 90s guy, as modern as they come. Think baseball caps and motor bikes and skateboards. His adventures as he attempts to run away from God, and his eventual acceptance of his responsibilities, make up the story. The story offers two difficulty levels, with words and phrases highlighted along with the narration. In addition to the 12 story pages, there is a series of fun activities. The young ones can re-arrange story scenes, write their own version of the tale, solve jigsaw puzzles and click on hotspots to invoke entertaining animations.

Magic School Bus Explores The Rainforest Music Pen / Microsoft Corporation [top]

In this sixth Magic School Bus title based on the book series by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen, the class mission is to travel to the Costa Rican rainforest and clone missing parts of the ecosystem so they can turn their classroom into a virtual rainforest. In the classroom there are reports to view and and projects to hear about by clicking on items and characters in each of the two rooms. Clicking the lockers brings up a board of 14 rainforest/ecosystem themed games, ranging from jigsaw puzzles to dodging falling raindrops to mini-platformers. Most actions throughout the game are performed with the mouse; some games use the keyboard arrow keys, and there are printer options available in some sections. Once on the bus, the player has a number of options - pressing the steering wheel begins the trip to one of three parts of the forest: the Understory, The Canopy, or the Treefall Gap. There are more reports to view and a travel log that records the places the player visits. Off the bus, the player can use tools from the toolbox to hear animal sounds, inspect creatures through a magnifying glass, watch videos, capture wildlife and clone it for their virtual rainforest. When the right samples have been found from the clues given, clicking the inside of the toolbox will show how the selected sample has changed the classroom. This educational game is suggested for children aged 6 - 10, and focuses primarily on science skills, observation, experiment, and listening.

Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? / Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time TLC Multimedia, Inc. / Brøderbund Software, The Learning Company, Inc. [top]

This is based on Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego but more based on the series and featuring the theme song and videos from the Chief. The new game interface is almost entirely graphic, more like an adventure game. Carmen Sandiego and her gang of time crooks have stolen ACME's only Chronoskimmer, and she's using it to go back in time and pilfer goods from history. Luckily, the time portals remain open once she has used them. But, it's up to you to track her down and return the items she has stolen so that history can go on as it should. Players must solve 19 mysteries, starting in Ancient Egypt and leading slowly up to the present day. Along the way, they will meet such historical personages as Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt, Thomas Edison, William Shakespeare, even Elizabeth I, Queen of England. They will also learn a bit about each time, place and culture they visit. As players arrive in each new era, they are accompanied by a Good Guide. This person can help the players on their explorations and provides an explanation of where they are and what is happening at that point in time. They also carry another section of the chronopedia, a guide to times and places in history. The chronopedia, besides giving the history facts associated with the time period players are in, can also help with the quests players are trying to solve in that time period. In addition to tracking down the thief at each location, players must find all three parts of Carmen's note that the thief dropped. When players have gained all three pieces, they can nab the crook and head for home. After you nab all the lesser crooks (twice), you get to go after Carmen Sandiego herself.

Betrayal In Antara Sierra On-Line Inc. [top]

Betrayal in Antara uses an updated version of the game engine from Betrayal at Krondor. However, it does not continue the Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar saga, but instead starts a new tale set in a different fantasy world, known as Ramar. The story begins with William Escobar, the son of the governor of Pianda, sailing home to meet his fiancee. The ship is attacked by pirates, and William escapes in a life boat with a mortally wounded traveler. Before he dies, the stranger gives William a medallion, warning him of a conspiracy against the Empire. William meets a young magician named Aren, who has just discovered devastating powers within himself, and the two decide to meet William's father and ask for his advice concerning the unsettling information. The game plays very similarly to Betrayal at Krondor. The player navigates a party of three characters through the 3D world. Enemy encounter triggers a separate battle screen, on which player-controlled party and the enemies engage in turn-based combat. Cities are usually displayed as still pictures, with various locations accessible via menu-based navigation. Like in Betrayal at Krondor, there are only two character classes in the game, warrior and mage. The skill system is also nearly identical; skills are improved by repeatedly using them, and marking them in the skill menu for faster learning. Elements like a day/night cycle, weapon and armor repairing, navigation on world map, the necessity to carry rations, etc. are also brought over from the earlier Dynamix game.

Diablo Blizzard North / Blizzard Entertainment Inc. [top]

Diablo is a dark fantasy-themed action role-playing game. Set in the fictional Kingdom of Khanduras (located in the Diablo series fantasy world of Sanctuary), Diablo has the player take control of a lone hero as he or she battles to rid the world of the eponymous Lord of Terror. Beneath the town of Tristram, the player journeys through sixteen dungeon levels to ultimately come face to face with Diablo and his demon minions. At the beginning, you choose your character, warrior, sorceror or rogue. These characters can use different weapons, spells and equipment. The game starts in a town, where you can buy new stuff for your hero / heroine. You also get certain quests from the inhabitants there. Now you continue your way down to one of the 16 randomly created dungeon levels. There are loads of monsters to kill, after you have gained a certain number of experience points you can upgrade your skills. You find money which you can use to buy new weapons or scrolls or book etc. in town. The game features a great range of monsters, from simple skeletons to Diablo himself. Diablo is highly replayable thanks to its randomly generated levels, with every map that the player encounters being unique compared to the last. This randomness extends to the monster population as well, though they are generated from a group appropriate for that level. In addition, in single player mode there are only three core quests as the rest of them are drawn from several pools, making it impossible to complete every quest in one playthrough of the game. Either way, only the last two quests are compulsory (although it is necessary to complete the voluntary missions to gain experience and items, and to learn more of the backstory). Given this arrangement, no two playthroughs of the game are ever exactly alike.

Fallout was arguably the game that played a major part in resurrecting the PC RPG genre, which was in a big slump at the time of Fallout's release in the latter part of 1997. Fallout changed the way people thought about RPGs. It brought us out of the realm of dwarves and elves, and into a brave new world - a world devastated by a nuclear holocaust that left only a handful of survivors. The civilization as we know it has been destroyed. The Earth has become a huge radioactive area. Only the most courageous ones dare to dwell on the surface, forming communities and building new cities. Many people live in Vaults, huge underground dwellings. You play the role of an inhabitant of Vault 13. Recently, the water purification controller chip was broken. Without clean water, the people of the Vault cannot survive. You are sent to retrieve a chip from another Vault. And you venture outside, to face a dangerous world and to find your place in it. The game uses a character development system called S.P.E.C.I.A.L. (the word is formed from the first letters of the game's most important character attributes). You can customize your character's parameters and skills, making him a strong melee fighter, a computer freak, a charismatic leader, a skillful sniper, and many more. You can specialize in various types of weapons, become proficient in conversations with people, etc. The game world offers a non-linear exploration: you can either follow the main story or perform one of the many sub-quests, visiting the game's locations in your preferred order. The game utilizes a turn-based combat system. Your party members (if you recruit any) are controlled by the computer AI. Each action (movement, attack, using a healing item, etc.) costs you action points; once they are depleted, your turn ends.

Halls of the Dead: The Faery Tale Adventure 2 Dreamer's Guild, The / Encore Inc. [top]

Sequel to MicroIllusion's classic RPG. The three brothers, already known from Faery Tale 1, have been teleported to a foreign country, where they have to save the local people from evil powers spreading in the once peaceful lands. The gaming world is really huge - be prepared to play this one for several weeks/month. One of the most underrated RPGs of all time, it builds upon its predecessor's best-loved feature: a huge, dynamic, densely populated world where you can always find something to do and gentle townsfolk to talk to. Similar to the first game, it's a "light" RPG in a sense that it focuses much more on storytelling and adventure-style quests than on building characters' stats to a godlike level. The interface and graphics are similar to the isometric view of Ultima 8, but less elegant: a full quarter of the screen is taken up by character and action panel at all times, but this does make simple tasks like equipping your characters and casting spells much easier. In contrast to the single-player game of Faery Tale Adventure 1, you can now control all three brothers at once while they roam the lands. The Dreamer's Guild went out of business while making the game, and towards the end, had to release it quickly in order for it to be released at all. Therefore, a lot of things were missed, not finished, left half done. You can find all sorts of quest items thoughout the game, though you will not be able to do a thing with them. Entire parts of the game were removed, such as the Island of Ione, the island where you are suppose to find the 3rd lost key.

Hellfire Synergistic Software, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

Hellfire is an add-on to the action RPG Diablo. It adds two new dungeons to the game: the Demon Crypt and the Festering Nest, both crawling with all-new creatures. The Nest has the appearance of an insect hive and is populated with insectoid monsters and a boss creature called the Defiler. The Crypt is controlled by the demon Na-Krul, a former lieutenant of Diablo who turned on his master and now works on his own. To master the challenges of the new dungeons, a new character class is available: the Monk can use staff weapons to attack several enemies at the same time and also is an expert at unarmed combat as well as an able spellcaster. Also added are new spells, items and weapons. New magical items include oils (once applied, they add magical effects to weapons) and runes (they can be set on the ground as booby traps, unleashing magical effects on unsuspecting monsters).

Lands of Lore II: Guardians of Destiny Westwood Studios, Inc. / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This is the sequel to Throne of Chaos, the original Lands of Lore game. Unlike Lands of Lore 1, Guardians of Destiny is an action RPG which occurs in real-time 3D (much like Daggerfall). The game features numerous video sequences featuring computer graphics and live actions, thus taking up 4 CD-ROMs. You are Luther, the son of Scotia (the main villain in the original game). In her quest for power and revenge Scotia accidentally set into motion the revival of Belial, God of Evil. Now that she's dead, it's up to you to clean up the mess left behind and stop Belial from reviving and doing all sorts of naughty things to the world. You are not without help... with her dying breath Scotia gave Luther her mighty powers of shapeshifting, but through an error Luther received the powers in a damaged formed: he cannot control when he changes or what he changes into. Things aren't easy for Luther. Not only is he cursed with his mother's power, but the people of the Lands are understandably upset with Scotia and will attempt to take their frustration out on Luther. But with his mother's magic and a little help from the Draracle (another god and Belial's parole officer) Luther just might be able to fulfill his destiny and stop Belial.

Lazenca: Revival of a Myth [K] Family Production / Hyundai [top]

Yeonghon Gibyeong Lazenca is an action role-playing game based on the Korean TV animated series Lazenca: Revival of a Myth. In a post-apocalyptic world, an overly ambitious Empire invades a nearby kingdom. A young man named Atin finds himself in the unlikely role of a hero when circumstances make him escape together with the princess. Atin joins a resistance organization and attempts to uncover the mystery of the ancient sentient machine Gairun in order to defeat the Empire. The game uses pre-rendered backgrounds with fixed camera angles for exploration and battles. The player controls Atin who fights enemies with his fists in a beat-em-up-like fashion, or throws boomerangs at them. As Atin gains experience points and levels up he gradually learns special powerful attacks that require the use of technique points. Lazenca suffers from some huge problems typical for release date critical licensed games: It feels unfinished and rushed. Family Production even tried to compensate its failings with a patch later, that added several enemey types and items to the game, and made some adjustments to the controls and balancing. Yet even the "complete" version is much too short for an action RPG, the 13 animated episodes didn't provide plot for more than 5 or 6 hours. There's little to no challenge to the combat either, with no room nor need for character customization.

Legend Of The Ancient Dragon Mirinae Software / JC Research [top]

During the mid/late 1990s, there was a demo on the Internet of a DOS game called "Dragon Pursival". This game excited many because it was a Korean developed RPG. Very few Asian console style RPGs were available for the PC in America at the time, and it was nice to see a game of its kind. The only problem with it was the fact that the game was entirely done in Korean. Most American gamers could not play it, due to how important text is in an RPG. There were even online petitions to get the game translated. The game was eventually translated and released for Windows. In this game you must form a party to save the five kingdoms of Lotland from destruction by the ancient dragon. Control is all done by the keyboard. The manufacturer advertises over 40 hours of gameplay.

Original Mulan, The Pioneer Soft Ltd. / Global Business Concept [top]

The Original Mulan takes the famous Chinese poem "Ballad of Mulan" as a background for this freely imagined story. The game depicts some of her adventures in the army. She starts out with Commander Lo and finds more fellow combatant in the course of the game. The gameplay itself consists of stages you have to fight through. Between them is some dialogue which pushes the meager story along. The fighting is turn-based. You'll receive items from enemies like food, medicinal herbs or weapons. You'll also level up with enough experience. Basically it's like a RPG only focused on fighting.

Sanguozhi: Shuhan Yingxiongzhuan [Tw] Soft World [top]

This is a 3rd person hack & slash / shooter from Taiwan based on The Three Kingdoms story (you might actually recognize some characters from Sango Fighter). For each stage you get to chose one of six heroes with different stats. Besides a standard melee weapon, you also have a number of magic spells at your disposal. The levels are very much like in early 90s FPS, with three colored keys in each to get around. On the level map, you can chose whatever path you like, but it gets pretty difficult after the first level.
