Alice: An Interactive Museum Toshiba-EMI Limited / Synergy Interactive Corp. [top]

How hard can it be to find a single deck of cards? Just try it. You'll begin this epic adventure in the center of a gigantic mansion, quickly moving from room to room in search of clues and information some of which is contained in the interpretation of hanging artwork. Each of the 12 rooms holds different challenges and hidden goodies, so be certain to comb each one very carefully. Finding the deck of cards will earn you a trip to the Last Room, where you'll finally discover the true mystery of your adventure. It was created by three artists: Kuniyoshi Kaneko, who works in oils, India inks, and ceramics; Kazuhiko Kato, composer and musician; and Haruhiko Shono, interactive media expert and Macromedia Director artist. The viewer falls into a three- dimensional rendering of Kaneko's room, its walls lined with his paintings, to the atmospheric ramblings of Kato's instrumental music. Just about every artwork or objet d'art does something when tickled and clicked, in the Manhole/Cosmic Osmo interactive manner. The best stuff bends reality as only the reactive computer can; as when, in one painting, two women frolic in a sitting room, upon whose wall hangs a painting of the very same scene. Click on the small rendition of the painting and it grows to fill the screen, replacing the original rendition. Of course, that little homunculus of a painting still hangs on the wall. Click on it again, and again, and again, and you're diving through the recursive rabbit hole of post-linear art.

Alien Virus Trecision S.p.A. / Vic Tokai, Inc. [top]

Alien Virus is the first adventure game from Trecision, the Italy-based developer responsible for Nightlong, one of the best adventure games in recent years. It's one of those adventure games that you really want to like but can't due to insipid puzzles and other annoying quirks. You will want to like Alien Virus because it has many positives going for it. The plot, for starters, is an interesting sci-fi mystery reminiscent of Alien movies. Upon arrival at an outpost on a routine cargo mission, you find it deserted. And worse, something is stalking the few remaining survivors... and it won't be long until it detects your presence. Unfortunately, the game never takes advantage of this promising premise. Instead of looking for survivors and trying to find your foe, you will spend most of the time in Alien Virus looking for ways to open countless locked doors. There are non-player characters, but they are few and far between, and static game screens - although nicely rendered in SVGA - hardly gives the sense of urgency necessary to immerse you in the plot. Thankfully, the point-and-click interface is both simple and easy to use that playing the game is not a tedious affair, despite the fact that most rooms do look remarkably similar, i.e. bland without anything you can interact with. Had the puzzles been more varied and interesting, the game would have been much better. As it stands, Alien Virus is just a downright average, often boring adventure you'll struggle to finish just because you are curious to see how it all ends. Fortunately for adventure gamers, Trecision improved their act significantly with each subsequent release.

Ancestral Trail, The [It] Holodream Software / Hobby & Work [top]

This is an Italian graphic adventure based on a partwork magazine that was originally published by Marshall Cavendish in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand in the early nineties that was also translated into French, German, Italian and Spanish. The story tells the fantasy/sci-fi filled story of a boy called Richard, who is brought against his will to a strange land known as the Ancestral World. This original 26 part series was extended, and Richard's adventures continued into a futuristic world known as the Cyber Dimension. It was published only in Italy by chapters (similarly to "Time Runners" or "Dylan Dog"). It's now offered free by the developer.

Andromedas Erbe 1 & 2 [G] Thomas Dingel [top]

Teil 1: Das Ufo This is a sort of a sequel to Mission Supernova. This time the player takes the role of Peter Platon, a private detective who has to find out the whereabouts of a missing spaceship. His search leads Platon on many planets. The protagonist of the predecessor, Horst Hummel, still has a role as secondary character. The controls follow the traditional SCUMM style: the player combines verbs displayed on the bottom on the screen with objects in the game world or the inventory to issue commands. The game features both inventory and logic based puzzles, e.g. sliding puzzles. Additionally there are mini games like a Tetris variant to solve. When leaving a planet, the coordinates - finding them is the objective of many puzzles - for the next have to be typed in manually. The graphics are a different from its predecessor: it is still played in first-person, but the backgrounds are rendered, inventory items are shown as pictures and there are some animated scenes. Teil 2: Der (wahre) Sieg? Initially commercial and shareware, the game was re-released as freeware in October 2002 and now can be downloaded for free.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? - The Tale of Orpheo's Curse Viacom New Media [top]

This FMV adventure is based on the Nickelodeon television series about a club of kids called the Midnight Society who entertain each other with ghost stories around a campfire. You, the game player, are attempting to gain entrance into the society by telling a ghost story of your own. It's a very clever idea, and it works very well and can be enjoyed by even older kids. The story you're "telling" in this case is about Alex and Terri, a brother and sister who sneak into an abandoned old theater one night. The theater, "Orpheo's Palace," was once the venue of a famous magician of the same name. Unfortunately, the magician, his family, and his employees all disappeared or died in very mysterious and highly questionable circumstances over fifty years ago, and since then the theater has been closed. It should come as no great shock that the theater is, indeed, haunted. The Great Orpheo, now an insanely evil ghost, has filled his audience with wax dummies for whom he continues to perform. Trouble is, his magic doesn't seem to work any more, and anyone who appears in one of his tricks tends to come to a very bad end. Terri and Alex aren't in the creepy old theater more than a few minutes before they learn that Orpheo plans for them to star that very night in his most difficult illusion: the Teleportation Boxes! Their only hope for survival and escape from the theater is to solve the riddle of Orpheo's Curse. They get assistance in this quest from several helpful ghosts that populate the theater.

Arnie Goes 4 Gold [G] Top Job GmbH / Bank Austria AG [top]

This is a promotional game by an Austrian bank. It's a humorous adventure which plays with many Austrian stereotypes - it begins with the name of the protagonist: Arnie. After the death of his rich uncle Fritz he inherits a key to a house - but first he has to find it. The handling is similar to the SCUMM system found in the classic LucasArts adventures: You select between six verbs to interact with your surroundings. Unlike most adventures you can take several objects with you which have no use in the game. The puzzles mostly center around finding hidden items and using them in a creative way. And, of course, the usage of services provided by Bank Austria. This game was linked with a lottery.

Astronomica: Quest For The Edge Of The Universe Ringling Multimedia Corp. / Hyper-Quest, Inc. [top]

A brilliant astronomer, on the verge of discovering the fate of the universe, is missing along with Astronomica, his supercomputer. Explore the awesome wonders of the cosmos. the dangers of deep space, travel back in time to uncover the secrets of the universe. Remember the first time you went to the planetarium? You marveled as you peered into space, but after a few minutes you'd seen enough and wanted to grab a Popsicle, right? The same is true of Astronomica, which begins as an intriguing search for a missing astronomer but devolves into a series of weightless puzzles about space trivia. In most cases you figure out the answer through trial and error, not through a better understanding of astronomy. Ultimately, Astronomica does little more than familiarize players with basic space terms. Despite some sloppy production values (such as the director's audible ''Action!''), the game does offer a reference encyclopedia and detailed planetary photographs science buffs will appreciate.

Auf der Suche nach Dr. Gara [G] Promotion Software / ARAG [top]

This is a free advertising game to promote ARAG insurance company. We have to go to Dinotown to solve the mystery of the prehistoric beings populating the city. Well, that's about the entire plot. First, we are approached by a dangerous dinosaur that compels us to enter name and address in a form, so that we come into possession of an identity document. We then find us on orientation map again, which makes up virtually the most gameplay. So we are at any of the countless villages only a short time and then land again on the map - assuming you will not be eaten by a giant lizard, because you have given a wrong answer. You go aimlessly through this area. There is an ice cream parlor, a car dealership, a golf course, a hospital, a radio tower, yes, even a disco. Only the ARAG insurance agency that employs the only human contact can help out sometimes. In addition, in the inventory a lot of great items are accumulated, which can not be considered because you do not know in 80% of cases what they are supposed to represent. There are no right puzzles, the difficulty is to find out at what place in Dinotown currently something can be done. The game seems designed for children and the graphics are static.

Beneath a Steel Sky Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive Entertainment [top]

In futuristic England, there are giant cities owned solely by corporations, separated by a giant wasteland known as The Gap. When Robert Foster's Gap-dwelling tribe is killed by soldiers from Union City who capture him, everything changes for him. After a narrow escape from the helicopter bringing him there as it inexplicably crashes, Robert and his droid Joey must search the decaying city, attempting to befriend both the snobby rich and the frustrated poor as the two attempt to get out of the city, but in the middle of everything they uncover the dark truth about LINC, the bizarre computer which makes the city tick. Using the then revolutionary Virtual Theatre engine, BASS' characters can move freely independent of the player, allowing the game world to be much more dynamic than anything seen before (other than Virtual Theatre's debut game, the less popular Lure of the Temptress). Otherwise, the engine provides tried and true point-and-click adventure gameplay. The story is a remarkable blend of cold, sometimes chilling, science fiction with a brilliantly dry sense of humour – often topped off with a bit of genuine emotion, whether from your robotic sidekick Joey (possibly the best sidekick in the genre’s history) or from the family dynamics that play into the incredibly moving ending. The dialogue is uniformly brilliant, the voice acting is top-notch, the art is colourful and vibrant (especially the beautiful introductory comic sequence, drawn by Watchmen creator Dave Gibbons, who also drew the game’s gorgeous backgrounds), and the entire experience feels like a true genre classic. As for Aug 02, 2003, it became officially freeware. The creators of ScummVM, a gaming interface written to make old adventure games playable on modern operating systems (only when you own the original software) asked developer Revolution if they were allowed to take a look at the source code to be able to fully support the game in their interface. They got more than they expected when Revolution made the full game (cd version with music and speech) available to everyone.

Blind Date, National Lampoon's 3Vision Interactive Pictures / Trimark Interactive [top]

This is a sort of "dating simulator" if you will, closely related to another interactive movie, Man Enough. This one, however has more in the way of interaction and its humor makes it a more reasonably human experience (instead of being an all-out sexfest). You control a lucky guy who has been set up on a date with Sandi, a gorgeous and charming girl. Your objective? To get her, of course! (this doesn't mean you get any sexual payoff from the game; though there's a lot of sexual innuendo, your conquest of Sandy is played more for the fun of it than for sex). Gameplay consists of verbal sparrings which trigger appropriate video sequences; to spice up the action, you also get some mini-games.

C.I.T.Y. 2000 London / City In Trouble Year 2000 London Aditus Inc. [top]

All the mystery of London awaits you in this thrilling game of espionage. You'll enter the real world of actual London streets as the American agent Jon Daring. Your mission: infiltrate and prevent an evil drug lord from taking control of England's capital city. But beware, for those who've gone before you have never returned! Visit sites such as the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, the Tower of London, and hundreds more as you learn your way around one of Europe's greatest cities. This is the Plan 9 from Outer Space of CD-ROM games, a graphic adventure that tries to take itself seriously in the face of goofy acting and silly dialogue. On the serious side, C.I.T.Y. 2000's premise of James Bond-style intrigue and espionage set on the streets of London seems interesting enough. There's an impressive five-minute video clip intro of Daring's latest spy episode. Summoned to London due to evil drug lord S. Rooter having some nefarious plans for the city, you Daring's role upon arrival at Heathrow Airport. From there you'll do the standard spy stuff: knocking around the city looking for clues, making contacts, drinking martinis, and so forth. Most of the screen is occupied by a digitized color photo depicting where in London you are. The game is little more than a collection of photos interspersed with the occasional live-action video clip. There's virtually no interaction with any of the scenes - you simply point and click your way from one photo to the next. What's worse, continuity between scenes is lacking. At the bottom of the screen are game-control icons for picking up objects, examining your inventory, talking with others, mixing chemicals, etc. Whenever you examine an item, you're treated to a nifty 3-D animation of the object and a verbal explanation of what it is.

Commander Blood Cryo Interactive Ent. / Microfolie's / Mindscape [top]

This is a sci-fi sequel to the unique Captain Blood. Bob Morlock, a biomechanical mastermind and founder of a massive company called Kanary is the oldest being in existence thanks to scientific advances. Knowing his time in this universe is nearing an end, he would like to see the Big Bang and the beginning of the universe. Kanary's Clone Consortium branch builds Commander Blood in order to help Morlock achieve his goal. Commander Blood is placed on a high-tech ship, the Ark, and aided by Honk, Blood’s onboard computer personality; the Orxx, Blood’s biomechanical 'clone'; Olga, Blood’s onboard translator; a radio, television set; and other technology. Communication with the game’s characters is carried on clicking on a series of words that serve as topics. Captain Blood utilized UPCOM (icon-based communication system), while Commander Blood makes use of a multiple- choice conversation system, in which players click through word-choices in order to learn more information. The game focuses on Commander Blood’s interactions with the denizens of the worlds players travel to in search for the Big Bang. Thus, the game makes use of complex graphics that depict orbiting planetary systems, expressive characters (represented by live action puppeteering), and an onboard television, with different channels to watch.

Conflict in Jerusalem Lynx Communications [top]

You're on a secret mission in Jerusalem during the week leading up to the death of Jesus. The graphics in this Myst-like adventure game are terrible (even for the time) but the writing and storyline are amazingly great. It really gets deep into the political and social background of the story of the gospels in a way you don't often encounter. Become an eyewitness to the people, places, and events of the most important week in history. Witness events like Palm Sunday, last supper, the trial of jesus, crucifixion, and resurrection. Have over 1200 possible conversations with the fictional characters representing priests, pilgrims, Pharisees, Romans, Disciples and other people. Consult the on-line Encyclopedia.

Crazy Circus [G] Ad Games / BBDO Interactive [top]

Frank and Jenny are witness to a kidnapping and work as amateur detectives in a crazy circus. This we learn in the intro of the promotional adventure for a savings bank. The cost of the game was quite remarkable for the time, at least in the advertising game sector. Integrated voice output, music on the cd as well as graphics of LucasArts level raise the game to a welcome change from the crowd.

Crystal Rain Forest, The Sherston Software / Terrapin Software [top]

The planet Oglo is in big trouble... and it is up to you to save the rain forest. This is a learning adventure for students from 8 to 13 which introduces and offers practice in Logo concepts. The story is exciting, the colors bright, the activities fun, all mixed with the right amount of clever animation and humor. A poisoned dart, a snake with a sweet tooth, and some friendly monsters all figure into the plot. The graphics and sound are superb - they'll bring forth a chuckle from children and adults alike. An adventure that students will want to explore again and again. Estimate distances and angles, repeat patterns, experiment with variables, and build procedures. Read maps of Bridgetown to hunt for clues and help local residents. Guide robots, mend bridges, and pack medicinal leaves to earn money for equipment. Then navigate the river through the rain forest looking for the magic crystals. Exploration eventually leads to "Crystal Logo," with which magic crystals can be created. Students love meeting the characters and mastering the challenges while learning Logo fundamentals and building a foundation for their own Logo explorations. Comprehensive teacher options make it a flexible and effective teaching tool. It offers three modes of use and two levels of difficulty. While the narrative follows a sequential progression of key problem-solving skills, each of the activities may also be explored individually to provide reinforcement or special focus. The easy-to-use Teacher Options menu makes it easy to adapt to a wide variety of situations. A updated and enhanced version 2 was later released in 2005 that worked on newer o/s.

Cyberwar: The Lawnmower Man 2 SCi Games Ltd. [top]

Cyberwar is the sequel to the computer game adaptation of "The Lawnmower Man". The original movie, directed by Brett Leonard and very loosely inspired by the Stephen King short story, exploited the hype that had formed around the Virtual Reality phenomenon in the early 1990's. You play as Dr. Angelo, sent in to Virtual Reality to defeat Jobe, who, in the film was born simple but increased his brain capacity by 400% using Virtual Reality. He eventually leaves his physical body and enters VR permanantly. As the first game ends, Dr. Angelo is overwhelmed by Cyberjobe's powers, but in a moment of redemption Cyberjobe realizes he has not lost all his humanity and releases his prisoners. This is where Cyberwar starts. Once again Dr. Angelo must jack into the cyberspace and confront a new threat. It is a new version of the Cyberjobe, that was restored from a Virtual Space Industries backup before their headquarters blew up. This being is just as powerful as the original Jobe but is completely soulless and lacks any form of humanity. Just like its predecessor, Cyberwar has the player face a number of laser-game-like sequences in a pre-rendered 3D environment. The various subgames span from the classical "right-button-at-the-right-time" to puzzle-solving. The Cyberworld is divided into three large areas, each residing onto a game disc. The player is allowed to save up to a maximum of three times per disc. One common action subsequence has the player drive a virtual vehicle through a city or tunnel, and press the appropriate arrow key to avoid crashing into obstacles. These subgames are called Cyberboogie and Circuit Citie. There is quite some variety among puzzle subgames, which rely mostly on subsequent attempts. In one, called Projectile Ranges, you will have to find the right combination of angle and power in order to get a cannon shot through an invisible wall, behind which lies a minion of Cyberjobe. Reverse Engineering follows a similar pattern, as you will have to find a combination of shape and color, either of which allows you a safe passage to the other side. Finally the Security Door subsection includes the classic cogs, maze and tangram puzzles. Other subsections include the Debugging Area, a maze with a few rooms where you must find the switch that opens the exit; the Mutation Storage, a simplistic shooting gallery based more on timing than aim; the Hex-Lock station, where all you have to do is enter a code found in the Mutation Storage (?). It is no surprise that Cyberwar has some quite limited gameplay in favor of back-then impressive graphics and sound (yet never as much as a Don Bluth lasergame). Nevertheless it's an OK game for those who won't roll on the floor with laughter when they hear the words "Interactive Movie".

Dark Convergence II, The Jeff Kintz [top]

This is the sequel to The Dark Convergence and takes place some time after the end of the original game. The player has survived the horrible night, but his mind is deeply scarred by the horrors he had to face. In fact, the player lives as a bum, wandering aimlessly on the streets, not capable of retrieving his own lost sanity. A new horrid menace may be lurking underneath the apparent calm and may be linked to the psychiatrist who is searching for the player. This game uses the same engine as the original game with similar gameplay and atmospheres.

Death Gate Legend Entertainment Company / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Death Gate is a great fantasy adventure based on best-selling novels by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. As young Haplo, member of the despised Patryn race, you are tasked with finding all pieces of the World Seal to avenge your people and free them. While similar to other Legend's graphical adventures, Death Gate broke new grounds with an ingenious spellcasting interface that is superbly integrated into the game engine, and required to solve many puzzles. The storyline is strong, although a little too simplistic given the rich fantasy world of the books. Death Gate is also notable for being the first Legend game to feature truly exceptional voice acting - among the best of its kind. With excellent writing, challenging but not-too-difficult puzzles, and a very high production value with respect to SVGA graphics and voice acting, Death Gate is one of Legend's finest and most underrated games. A must-have.

Der rasende Reporter [G] Promotion Software / Bundespresseamt [top]

You take the role of a reporter in this free German advergame for the Federal Press Office. You have a total of six days to get out the next edition of the newspaper. Your task is to visit the institutions and places of the city and to ask the citizens about various topics. This should be done in the context of three current issues of the day. When an accident happens, then to visit the accident site and the local hospital is the good choice. Topics that may affect the labor market on the other hand you should go to the employment office for comments on unemployment. The game offers a number of different topics and there are plenty of visitable places. To make matters worse, you can only visit ten places on one day and can provide the interviewee only two questions per visit. This trick is to simulate the stress of time a reporter faces, and makes the game more challenging. The issues of the day are not only the former political discussions to be addressed - but also drug addiction, unemployment, violence and the full range of local politics, ones so often found in the daily journals. The authors of the game have managed to produce a high level of authenticity.

Die Hohlenwelt Saga: Der Leuchtende Kristall [G] Weltenschmiede / Software 2000 [top]

After a series of German interactive fiction games (Das Stundenglas, Die Kathedrale, Hexuma), Harald Evers and his Weltenschmiede move on to point-and-click graphic adventures. Die Höhlenwelt Saga embeds a fantasy underworld in a science fiction frame. Starship pilot Eric "Speedy" MacDoughan traces his lost love, mysterious Maomi, to the barren planet 2S-126 in the Taurus 5 system, to discover that a network of caves leads to a gigantic cave world far beneath the crust - the Höhlenwelt ("cave world"). Down there, flying dragons and humanoid peoples live on a magical-medieval level under the despotic rule of an alien reptile race called Drakken. Eric meets the artificial being Cal (a deja vu for Hexuma players), who sends him to the cave world to retrieve a powerful energy crystal (the Leuchtende Kristall ("glowing crystal") from the game's title). And find Maomi, of course. Die Höhlenwelt Saga is a pretty straight-forward, inventory-driven point-and-click adventure game. Once Eric befriends a flying dragon named Susi (yes, Susi), he's free to explore the key places on the cave world continent of Veldoor at leisure, though the game's puzzles are strictly linear nevertheless. The game is entirely in German and was published in Germany only. The CD version of Die Höhlenwelt Saga features voice-overs for the intro and narrator sequences, but character dialogues stay text messages.

Discoverers, The Knowledge Adventure, Inc. [top]

This is a multimedia interactive CD with mini-games, based on a IMAX documentary about historical figures that achieved great advances in science. The film itself is based on a book by the Pulitzer winner Daniel Boorstin, and it is included in its entirety on the CD. It can be played from the main screen, with a series of buttons at the bottom to skip forwards or backwards or to access the other portions of the program. Clicking the movie frame on key moments brings up a separate screen, showing a related entry about the subject. The exploration screen shows a large picture with a timeline underneath at the right side, and a box with scrolling text at the bottom-left. A world globe appears inside a window, that can be rotated with the surrounding arrow buttons and clicked to go to another topic by region. The timeline has a slider that can be moved to change the subject by historical dates. There are voice overs for all the text. There are two guessing games, where the objective is to click on the correct picture for a scientist or explorer. On the "mis-discovery" game, the player moves inside a crudely rendered 3D maze with the mouse, bumping into blocky sprites to bring up a text window with a statement. There are three facts per level, and one of them is a scientific blunder made by ancient people, philosophers or explorers. At the end of each labyrinth, the goal is to choose one of the three exits marked A, B, C corresponding to the incorrect assumption.

Donkey Island [G] Pterodon Software / Vochozka Trading [top]

This is a parody on the glorious Monkey Island games... A pirate-wannabe Gaybush Nosehair must travel to the dangerous Donkey Island, to find a treasure and to face his enemy - the ghost-pirate LeDuck. The interface is pretty much the same like in first two Monkey Island games, and the graphics are also very similar. The development of "Tajemstvi Osliho ostrova" started after two students of the same high school - Jarek Kolar and Petr Vlcek first met. They worked on the game for fun and only in their free time. The programmer coded the whole game on a school's computer because he didn't have his own. After two years of development they contacted Petr Vochozka (the only one Czech publisher of games at those times) and signed a publishing deal with him. On June 20, 2000 (exactly 6 years after its first release) it was released as freeware.

Dragon Lore: The Story Begins Cryo Interactive / Mindscape [top]

This is a game with pretty graphics from Cryo. Werner Von Hallenrod, having reached eighteen, sets off to prove himself worthy of joining the Dragon Knights, and incidentally discover the truth about his father's death. He needs votes from current Knights to be accepted. Some Knights exhort him to be bloodthirsty, others to take the path of wisdom (nonviolence). One refreshing character will accept a bribe in return for a positive vote. A bar graph measures Werner's actions, growing towards violence or wisdom depending on his actions in certain circumstances. There are no conversations, only monologues from NPC's, as Werner never speaks in any way. Perhaps he should have been christened Noel, the Silent Knight. Whatever, Werner heads out, kills some monsters, picks up a few spells, and finally arrives at Von Wallenrod castle. The rest of the game is taken up with a scavenger hunt in the castle, finding various objects and figuring out what to do with them. Some items are not easy to see, and every room must be scanned thoroughly to ensure not missing something important. While there is some fighting, it is similar to Alone In The Dark. Werner has no stats or skills, only a bar measuring his life force. Combat is simply equipping a weapon and bashing away, hoping you can outlast the monster. Magic is minimal. Two spells are one-time-only; fireball can be handy, if you have time to bring up the runes for it. Teleport, when finally obtained, allows Werner to move around the castle easily, and later the countryside, when he receives the magic map. This is the best feature of the game. Dragon Lore Gold was a version with bug fixes, an enhanced main menu and music that plays as you move from location to location.

After the disappointing Return of the Phantom, Matt Gruson outdid himself with this game, incidentally the very last he'd have produced for MicroProse. The game casts you as a king of a faraway kingdom who must journey across the lands to prevent the evil dragon from breaking out from a magical prison. Very good puzzles and plot that is full of surprising twists. It's a graphic adventure in the classic third-person Lucasarts and Sierra style. Dragonsphere has text throughout and the CD version also has voices for the characters.

DreamWeb Creative Reality / Empire Interactive Entertainment [top]

Dreamweb is a dark, brooding game set in a dystopian near-future. You play Ryan, a bartender who is plagued by nightmares in this cyberpunk inspired adventure game. These nightmares eminate from the dreamweb, which affects the plane of your subconscious. The web has been corrupted by the presence of seven controlling figures and your job is to kill them, cleanse the web and save the world from madness. Considerable attention is paid to the game's atmosphere, but the value of a strong narrative is overlooked. The dialogue is functional rather than enjoyable. Puzzles have logical solutions, but the fact that you can pick up almost everything makes the solutions obscure at times. A prime example of style over content, but definitely worth a look for its gripping plot and very atmospheric gameplay. There's also a controversial and one of the earliest uncensored sex scenes in a mainstream PC game.

Dunkle Schatten is a point-and-click adventure in the typical LucasArts style.

In this adventure, you play as Karsten, a teenager who helps creating a youth centre so the local youth stays off the street and doesn't do things they shouldn't do. But that's easier than thought - there's much disturbance by a local gang of Neonazis. The game wants to show that violence is not an option and every conflict can be solved peacefully.

But the music is quick and the dances entertaining. There are even some visual effects. Dimmer's answering machine is mostly empty or has senseless messages but her computer nevertheless gives from time to time absurd hints. A nice idea is it that the persons introduce themselves alternatively, even those who only appear for a few seconds in the action. Attempts at humor include when Dusty speaks with a table, a cabinet or a lamp - and gets an answer.

Ecstatica Andrew Spencer / Psygnosis [top]

Ecstatica is one of the most unique and compelling action/adventures ever made, but also one of the most controversial due to its nonchalant depiction of violence and nudity. You are a lone traveler who stopped to pick up new supplies at Tirich, a small 10th century village, only to discover that a demon has been unleashed, and is going on a killing rampage. The local sorcerer's maid, Ecstatica, lies in a deep trance possessed by the demon. A few survivors give you some clues as to what has been happening and how to go about rescuing the maiden. You have a choice of playing as a male or female character, although the choice of female character is evidently an afterthought, since you will be referred to as a "he" throughout the game and chased by well-endowed women. Ecstatica uses a novel "ellipsoid" technology to animate charactes, which results in very realistic movements that are a step up from the polygonal characters of Alone in The Dark. One of the game's strongest points is the strong enemy AI. Monsters are surprisingly intelligent: they will seek you out, ambush you, and either try to subjugate or kill you. There are a few different weapons you can use, but you will die frequently because combat controls take some getting used to, and monsters are smart enough to gang up on you. Although its emphasis in clearly on action, Ecstatica is at heart an adventure game in that there are puzzles you must solve in order to progress, even if they are physical ones such as figuring out a way to get to a door that is out of reach. In contrast to Alone in The Dark, you can only carry one inventory item at a time, so you will need to wander around the village, trying to find use for the item in hand before picking up another (you can drop it, though). What makes Ecstatica controversial is the depictions of some scenes that are sacrilegious, vulgar and violent. For instance, you will need to steal a holy relic from a church, and monks may die during the course of the game. Your male character will also take a few opportunities to pee, and witness scenes of tortures and full frontal nudity. Despite the short length, there are many delightful animations and novel gameplay elements in here to please fans of action adventures. In 1997, a Windows version was released with better graphics and support for resolution 640x480

Emit Vol.1-3 Koei [top]

This is an adventure game that is the first entry of Shibusawa Kou's "English Dream" series -followed by the two-part entry, Dark Hunter. The purpose behind both projects is to teach Japanese people the English language with the help of a thrilling narrative. Each game has English consultants with a dual language and subtitle option for players. While the English Dream series has been largely forgotten, both titles appeared on Koei's 2003 Winter Thanks Rare Campaign with cheaper prices. This game was released as three separate parts. The first part is Lost Child of Time (時の迷子), the second is Life-Risking Journey (命がけの旅), and the final is Farewell to Me (私にさよならを). For consumers who wanted to hear the game's spoken dialogue in the SNES version, Koei developed a secondary hardware named Voicer-kun. Emit and Voicer-kun were released on the same day, and an option to buy both products as a companion pack was made available. Voicer-kun was likely planned to be applied for other products, but the only other title made compatible with it was Angelique Voice Fantasy. The scenario was composed by Jirō Akagawa and the character designs were made by Mutsumi Inomata. Koei also released a CD compilation of her original illustrations soon after Emit was released. Emit won the 1994 Yomiuri Shimbun Prize in the 1995 Japan Software Grand Prix. As a side note, the game's namesake is the backwards spelling of "time" and not the actual word "emit". The audio is English and you can toggle between English, Japanese or no text.

This Japanese adventure plays very much like Another World. Only it's not quite as good and polished, despite several delays in development (many sources on the web still list it as a 1993 release because of early announcements). Not everything in Father World is copied, though, and the game puts much more emphasis on dialogues and sidequests than the streamlined and quiet Another World. Because of its non-linearity, the level structure feels cluttered at times and it's easy to get lost in the multi-layered 2D world.

Freak Show is the first foray into interactive software from the underground San Francisco band The Residents. It's a bit adventure, yet without a linear plot and puzzles. It's best described as a multimedia experience, a digital art showcase, or a virtual visit to, well, a freak show.

The game featured some of the best 3D renderings for a computer program, at the time, and everything was rendered and animated by world-famous computer animator Jim Ludtke. The Residents are a strange band indeed. They have released dozens of albums since 1971, they co-invented the music video, they've not been played on MTV (which shows they must be original), they've done numerous live shows and performances, and still no-one knows who they are. In 1993, The Residents approached Jim Ludtke, an award-winning illustrator and animator who had previously done a video clip for them, with the idea of creating a multimedia CD-ROM experience based on their Freak Show comic book. When you first start Freak Show, you are dropped into a freak show tent with a few pitiful, unimpressive attractions. The most interesting part is the last exhibit, a list of 81 real freaks and their stories. The Residents have ensured all these freaks are treated with the proper respect. That sounds like pretty meager content for a whole CD-ROM, and indeed it is - until you deliberately ignore the pesky owner and go backstage. You can visit the trailers of the freaks that star in the game and learn more about their personal lives - the humans behind the freaks (this technique is also used in the other Residents CD-ROM, Bad Day on the Midway). This is not a normal adventure game - you can't die or lose, but you can't win either. You can visit the trailers and explore (and get your fill of The Residents' music, videos, performances and merchandise), learn about the personal tragedies of the stars, then leave. And so, says the closing narration, a freak show is much like life: nobody laughs when they leave.

Gadget: Invention, Travel & Adventure / Gadget: Past as Future Haruhiko Shono / Synergy Inc / Cryo Interactive [top]

This is a 1st person, point and click game considered to be Haruhiko Shono's masterpiece. The game is really a modern-day work of art and was way ahead of its time. From the strange mood music and realistic sound effects to the detailed atmospheric 3D settings and the haunted, disturbingly real-looking people (but with subtitles only: no voice, except for the introduction and ending), the story reminds you of one that is a cross between Jules Verne and George Orwell, and the game itself appears more modern in many respects than some of the newer releases today. It is the disturbing mood that the developer has managed to create in this game that really grabs you. As the game begins, you awaken in a hotel room feeling as if you're suffering from some illness that is affecting your mind, and you are not sure what is real. Meeting an enigmatic and somehow threatening man in the lobby who is apparently your boss, you are told that you are to contact an agent with the codename 'Horselover'. He is a member of a strange group of scientists being watched by the government and, at a secret research facility, he has been conducting mind-altering experiments and they have built a spaceship to escape. Ostensibly your world is about the be destroyed by a Comet, and you are the only one who can save it. Or is it really? Is this just a story that has been created by a fringe group for their own purposes? Or maybe it's just a figment of your own fevered, mind-altered imagination. To find out, you must travel deeper and deeper into their surrealistic world. You must race against time through abandoned and eerie train stations, talk with many obviously disturbed fellow travelers on those trains, stop at the Museum of Science and operate strange and powerful machines, and even pilot a monorail, airplane and spaceship yourself. And even when it is all over, will you really know the truth? The 1998 4 CD re-release Gadget: Past as Future is described as an unabridged version of the 1994 single CD release, and has enhanced videos and music upgraded from 8 bit to 16 bit.

Hawaii High: The Mystery of the Tiki ESX Interactive / Sanctuary Woods Multimedia [top]

This was the first game release targeted specifically to girls. Its designer was Trina Roberts, a writer for Barbie Comics and designer of Wonder Woman. The game was not successful, probably due to the low budget accorded such a ground-breaking project. It was followed, however, by four or five other games targeted towards girls, and it did introduce some of the features that would dominate the girls' games movement discussed in this volume: more character-centered plots, issues of friendship and social relationships, and bright colorful graphics. The two protagonists are 14-year-old students of Hawaii High, one native, one just moved from New York. They meet and make friends, and the girl from New York learns all about Hawaii in the course of the adventure, which involves a stolen tiki that they find and that they try to bring back, and in the course of doing that they discover an ancient Hawaiian burial and have to deal with two thieves who are bad guys, but kind of wacky bad guys, and wind up on the slopes of a volcano, surrounded by flowing lava, and meet mysterious creatures like the ghostly kahuna who is guardian of the burial cave.

Heimdall 2 The 8th Day / Core Design [top]

In this sequel to the addictive original, Heimdall - one of the gods in Valhalla, guards the only path from Valhalla to Midgard (Realm of the mortals), the Rainbow-bridge. According to the ancient tales he is gifted with the best hearing and sight of all the gods, and so he watches over the humans and alerts the other gods if something is happening. In Heimdall 2 he is once again on a quest to teach the half-god Loki a lesson, but this time he needs to walk around in Midgard as a mortal. Together with a female, a Valkyrie, he tries to help all the people he sees are in need, and find Loki. He has to not only retrieve the weapons of the Gods, but the amulets, talismen and Ro'Gelds (sources of magic) that are scattered throughtout the various worlds. Increase your statistics by practising combat and magic, fight various creatures and delve into various sub-plots that make up the whole. The graphics this time are more colorful and the game still highly addictive. The CD-ROM versions contain a CD audio soundtrack composed by Martin Iveson.

Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. / GameTek, Inc. [top]

The first game from Take 2 is a fun cyberpunk-meets-Inferno romp with an interesting plot: in the future where Hell is proven to exist and demons have real jobs, you play a police couple Gideon and Rachel who inexplicably become wanted criminals overnight. You must find out why you've been betrayed, and by whom. Dennis Hopper's voice is the only high-point of voice acting in this game, and most dialogues go on forever. Still, the game is recommended for some good (tough) puzzles and truly epic length, with multiple solutions and optional sub-plots. It uses a simple point-and-click interface. You advance in the game by talking to people and manipulating objects to solve puzzles. The game utilizes pre-rendered backgrounds and FMV sequences as cut-scenes.

Inherit The Earth: Quest For The Orb The Dreamer's Guild / New World Computing [top]

In this game you are Rif, a young fox, who is falsely accused of stealing the magical orb of storms. This orb is capable of predicting when storms will arrive. Obviously this is important to farmers, but it is just as important to the boar tribe, for their supply of mud. You'll have to find the Orb and the real thief, to clear your name, save your girlfriend and prevent war with the boar tribe. While you're doing this you'll encounter a much larger mystery: What is the origin of the tribes? Legend has it that the humans gave the animals the power of thought and speech, and then vanished. Who were they and what happened to them? This is a marvelous family adventure. The puzzles in the game are somewhat academic, but the vibrant graphics, bright story and likeable characters make this an enjoyable game for children of all ages.

Jack in the Dark is a fun short story of a little girl trapped in a toystore who must negotiate a variety of malignant toys and other perils to find her way out.

Jack The Ripper Intergalactic Development Inc. / Gametek, Inc. [top]

Jack the Ripper is arguably the ultimate detective game. Based on the sensational Jack the Ripper murders in 19th century London, your job is to deduce the killer's identity before he strikes again. Gameplay consists of highlighting text obtained by interrogation or search to record them as clues (or "premises" in the game's lingo) in your notebook. Then you must combine these premises logically to derive the solution. This novel method makes for a mostly static and "dry" game consisting of reams of text, but patient Sherlock Holmes fans who cherish abstract deduction will find this an ideal game to follow in Holme's footsteps.

Journeyman Project: Turbo! Presto Studios / Sanctuary Woods [top]

The year is 2318. The place: the sky-born city of Caldoria. After a century of bitter struggle, humanity has finally learned to live in peace. In 2117 the Unified World was established. And humanity knew no more war. But all that was achieved was threatened with the invention of time travel. Its potential to destroy humanity's hard won prosperity realized, the only time travel machine ever built, the Pegasus, was moved to a secret location. The Temporal Security Annex (TSA) was formed to protect history from sabotage. The project's code name: Journeyman. Exactly ten years ago, an alien delegation calling themselves the Cyrrollans approached earth as messengers from the Symbiotry of Peaceful Beings. They gave humanity ten years to decide if they want to join the Symbiotry or not. Now the moment has come, and humanity awaits the arrival of the alien delegation. You are Agent 5 of the Temporal Protectorate. When you report to the TSA, you find that someone is changing history, influencing events and happenings, changing how things happened - and not for the better. It is your job to find out who is messing with history, stop him, and restore history. For this you will have to travel time, using the Pegasus, as far as 2 million BC. You will travel to Mars in 2185 to stop attack on an alien vessel, visit the World Science Center in 2310 to stop an assassination, and go back to 2112 to destroy a nuclear missile. You will collect items, solve puzzles, and pit your wits against a giant robot. The game itself is an adventure game, played in 1st person perspective - explore the environment, collect and use items, solve puzzles and small games, and it even has a maze in it. It has a few twists though: according to TSA's rules, you are not allowed to interact with people from a different time, so you must gather information in a different way. You can also stay only a limited time in every time zone, since your protective suit has only limited energy. You can also die at this game, if you are not fast thinking and fast moving. The game was originally made for the Macintosh and the PC port in 1993 suffered some problems, leading to a later improved release, re-titled The Journeyman Project: Turbo!

Jump: The David Bowie Interactive CD-ROM Ion inc. [top]

Where Prince Interactive takes hours to finish and attempts to offer a career overview, Bowie's CD-ROM skips the ch-ch-changes and rehashes videos and songs from his 1993 Black Tie White Noise album. After the opening credits, you enter an elevator and walk down the corridors of a gray office building matching the set for the music video "Jump They Say". You are given a choice of entering three rooms: the David Bowie suite, the video suite or Room 2901. Inside the David Bowie suite is an office with desk, filing cabinet and chair. By clicking a camera sitting on the desk, you hear a 10-minute audio interview with shallow off-the-cuff commentary from Bowie, illustrated with photographs from a recording session. Clicking a briefcase on the floor launches an equally unsatisfying 10-minute video interview. Room 2901 contains a telescope. Looking through the telescope, you enter rooms in a hotel across the street to watch four music videos: "Jump They Say," "Black Tie, White Noise," "Miracle Goodnight" and "You've Been Around." The videos play in a window filling an eighth of the screen and look almost as good as MTV. Inexplicably, the hotel rooms contain little hidden surprises that seem to have wandered onto the disk from some children's game - click on a dog, for example, and it barks; click on a bowling trophy, and a bowling ball rolls across the floor. The video suite puts you at the controls of a video-editing machine where you create a customized version of "Jump They Say." The creativity is strictly limited, however, to selecting from five video tracks playing simultaneously, designating one to display on the main screen.

KGB / Conspiracy Cryo Interactive / Virgin Interactive [top]

It is August 1991, the USSR has only a few days left before its tremendous collapse and KGB officer Maksim Rukov has been moved, without explanation, to the newly formed Department 7, which investigates KGB corruption and roots out possible double-agents and traitors. Sent to investigate the mysterious death of a private detective, Rukov quickly uncovers a nefarious plot by top-level KGB generals to oust President Gorbachev. Your character is never on-screen, you view scenes from a first-person viewpoint even though th game is a standard point-and-click affair. There is a time limit on your mission which makes it tougher as you must think on the run. There are alternate solutions and outcomes to various puzzles which will affect the overall gameplay. The graphics and music are pleasing and the story very well done...definitely worth a play. An enhanced cd version was released in North America under the title of "Conspiracy" which included clips of Rukov's father played by Donald Sutherland giving advice.

King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride Sierra On-Line Inc. [top]

Princess Rosella is somewhat rebellious, and dreams of adventure rather than marriage. She catches a glimpse of a something magical in a pond, and dives in. Her mother, Queen Valanice follows. Valanice lands in a desert in the land of Eldritch, while Rosella finds herself transformed into a troll and engaged to be married to the King of the Trolls. As the two characters attempt to find each other, they discover that all of Eldritch is in danger. The evil sorceress Malicia has attacked or imprisoned the leaders of the different kingdoms of Eldritch, and plots to destroy the land. The action is separated into six chapters, each set primarily in a different region of Eldritch. The player alternates between Valanice and Rosella with each chapter. The two heroines travel through some of the same places during the course of the game, finally meeting up again in the end. The game also uses a smart pointer which lights up when passed over an object that can be used. Players can get or use objects and talk to characters by simply clicking on them. It featured high-resolution graphics in a style reminiscent of Disney animated films. It is also the only King's Quest game with multiple protagonists, and the only one to divide the story into "chapters." It's also the only game in the King's Quest series to feature Queen Valanice in a major role, and also the only one in which King Graham is not shown or mentioned at all.

Klaustrophobia Carol Hovick [top]
A winner in the 1994 AGT programming contest, the three-part epic Klaustrophobia chronicles your exploits as you leave on a two-week vacation from ICON Inc., your place of employment. Although strongly influenced by Infocom's Bureaucracy both in its humor as well as its events and puzzles, Klaustrophobia remains a very original, very challenging, and at times extraordinarily frustrating adventure. This is also one enormous game. It's so large, in fact, that it's been divided into three separate segments, apparently due to restrictions in AGT. When you reach the end of one section you can save your status and go on to the next portion, but you can't start from Parts 2 or 3 until you've solved the sections prior to them. The writing is also extremely well-done, with references to Bureaucracy, Hitchhiker's Guide, and the novels of Douglas Adam. This game is hard with a capital H. The difficulty stems equally from the puzzles - most of which are very good - and the AGT parser's limitations. Intelligent, hilarious, and occasionally so true-to-life that it's scary, Klaustrophobia deserves a place in every I-F hobbyist's library.

Kronolog: Nazi Paradox / Red Hell Castleworks / Cyberdreams, Inc. [top]

Kronolog presents one answer to the intruguing question: What would the future be like if Hitler's Nazi had won World War II? You are Dr. Hoffman, American scientist by day and leader of an underground movement by night who, in a quest to save your son, are given a chance to alter human history. The intriguing plot and excellent details are unfortunately buried under annoying interface (you cannot even use the keyboard for movement) and pixel-hunting puzzles. Warning: This game is extremely unforgiving: you *can* proceed far into the game only to realize that you need something you forgot to pick up in the first screen. In the German Red Hell version of the game, the gameplay is the same, but the story arc has been changed significantly. The world is there conquered by Soviet Union instead of Nazi Germany. Instead of Nazism, the game has many references to Soviet culture. Even the main character is named "Mark Constantine" (a Russian surname) instead of "Mark Hoffman" (a German surname, from the original version) Other than that, everything is same.

Legend of Kyrandia 3: Malcolm's Revenge Westwood Studios / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Everyone blamed evil jester Malcolm for his deeds, how he turned everyone to stone (which was true), and how he killed King and the Queen (which is absolutely not true, and you'll prove that). The game has three different endings, and at the end credits, you'll see how the Westwood Team combined with painted Malcolm. It's crazy marvelous. Now, it's your turn to tell the world your side of the truth. You will be helped by your bad memories aided by unconsciousness, and later in the game, you'll be determined to choose between the good and the bad one. This game has many paths; you can go to the jungle in six different ways: as a Pegasus, via the magic carpet, as a desguised fish-circus captain, ... you follow me? The graphics are advanced from the first two games, and the music is not the mystic one, but this music is really a happy type of music. Anyway, it suits with the game and Malcolm's jokes. Now, you start at the end of the first part. You remember when Brandon turned you into stone (as you did to every villager on this island), and finally, the moment of glory comes. The thunderbolt strikes you, and pushes you pretty far. But at least you're alive, and with a full bag of tricks. Take a few neccessary things from the nearby garbage, and visit Kyrandia again. Have fun!

The mogun, who looks like pink dragon of slightly humanoid shape admits it's a mistake and Mavlin definitely isn't Gagif Kolkol who was the original target but sees no reason to return Earthling back to his home planet.

The player controls Mavlin by six graphically presented commands (shoe for walking, ear for hearing etc.). The game features inventory, but the items can be used only on the spots on the screen, not interacted together. The graphics are created by a combination of rendered and hand painted objects. There is a hidden bonus mini-game hunt for the flag. For the task you have to catch the spirit of the flag, which can be partly understood from its name. The game contains music, but from the PC speaker only.

Mission Critical Legend Entertainment Company [top]

This is an excellent first-person graphic adventure. It is 2134, and the human race has been at war for 50 years since the Alliance declared independence from the stifling rule of the UN and its anti-technology policies. The Alliance is losing the war to the UN's greater numbers, but recently, Alliance scientists discovered an alien artifact on the planet Persephone. You are onboard the USS Lexington on its top-secret mission to investigate the artifact, and hopefully change the course of the war to the Alliance's favor. But the UN's spies are everywhere, and before the introductory movie is over, the Lexington has been ambushed and Captain Dayna has been forced to sacrifice almost the entire crew of the Lexington to destroy the attacking cruiser Dharma, leaving only you behind, unconscious. When you awaken, you discover yourself alone on a damaged ship. You'll have to patch the holes, prevent reactor overload, and bring the ship's computer back on-line before you can attempt to successfully complete the Lexington's original mission. Until the Lexington's condition is stabilized, there's a real-time clock ticking away (you get several hours). There are lots of well-integrated inventory-based puzzles to be solved. You'll also have to defend the Lexington from UN attacks in a simple 3D real-time strategy game (which has an adjustable difficulty level if you have trouble).

Mission Supernova [G] Thomas Dingel [top]

This is a shareware adventure in German. The player is "Horst Hummel", the spaceship's chef de cuisine. Usually this would be a job without much stress, but when you wake up, the whole crew is gone. You're alone on board. The game is a classic point & click adventure. It features a verb-based interface very similar to early LucasArts games, e.g. Zak McKracken or Maniac Mansion. Like in those games, gameplay mainly consists of exploring rooms/scenes, collecting various items and solving puzzles. Some items can be combined to form new items, and most of the puzzles require clever use of collected things. From time to time, talking to other characters is also necessary, which involves choosing among different dialog options. Some scenes have a time limit, and it is also possible to die or get stuck in various ways. Scenes are rather static, there is no scrolling in rooms. The main character itself is not visible in game, somewhat similar to Myst, although the perspective is not really first-person. You can interact with items at the other side of the room without actually moving there. It's split into two episodes. Teil 1: Das Schicksal des Horst Hummel was available for free, whereas Teil 2: Der Doppelgänger had to be ordered for money (shareware model). Both episodes were made freeware in 2002.

Myst Cyan Worlds Inc. / Mindscape Inc. [top]

Myst was the bestselling video game for several years, until The Sims exceeded its sales. Myst and its success had a significant impact on the first-person adventure game genre and was a showcase for many buyers of their first cd-rom drives. The story has you stumbling upon a most intriguing book, a book titled Myst. You have no idea where it came from, who wrote it, or how old it is. Reading through its pages provides you with only a superbly crafted description of an island world. As you reach the end of the book, you lay your hand on a page. Suddenly your own world dissolves into blackness, replaced with the island world the pages described. Now you're here, wherever here is, with no option but to explore. Myst is a first-person point-and-click adventure where the player controls a character known as The Stranger. Magically transported into the world described in the book, he needs to explore Myst Island and solve its mysteries. The game is presented as a series of scenes where the player acts with the environment by clicking and manipulating objects. There are no enemies and it is not possible to die. Through Myst Island, the game is further divided into mini-worlds set in different ages accessed through different books. Due to the game's popularity, many "Myst clones" came out after it and some adventure fans blame it for the death of the once traditional point-and-click adventure genre.

Night Trap: Director's Cut Digital Pictures / Acclaim [top]

Five girls go to a party to a nice house on a lakeside. Five girls disappear without a trace... Now another five girls go there, in order to spend the vacation with the Martins, the owners of the house, in particular with the lovely Ms. Martin. This time, you should not let them die a gruesome death! Because "nice people" can sometimes turn out to be... yes, that's right - vampires. The whole house is full of traps, that are intended to catch the poor innocent girls, so that the vampires can suck their blood... ugh. Luckily, the brave adventurer is there in order to cease to be hunted and to become a hunter instead. Set the traps so that they will capture the villains themselves, using precise timing and good organization. This was the very first game that used the FMV (full-motion video) technology with live actors. Although it didn't contain nudity or particularly gory scenes, it was considered one of the first games to have a mature content. It cost $1.5 million to make and stars Dana Plato, famed as a tv actor in the show Different Strokes. The mature content was controversial and brought about the creation of the video game rating board ESRB.

Noctropolis Flashpoint Productions / Electronic Arts [top]

Noctropolis is an adventure game, with game mechanics that will be familiar to anyone who has ever played point and click adventure games. You play the part of a character in a piece of "interactive fiction," and it's up to you to solve the puzzles and overcome the obstacles your character will have to face throughout the game. When you begin Noctropolis, you're just some guy who owns a bookstore. You also happen to be a huge fan of the "Darksheer" comic book series. Darksheer is a Batman-esque superhero (i.e. he doesn't have any actual super powers) and, with his partner Stiletto (a former supervillain converted to the side of the good guys) he is the sworn protector of Noctropolis. And Noctropolis is a city where it's always nighttime, thanks to a permanent ash cloud that hangs over the city (the result of some volcanic environmental catastrophe which occurred decades before the timeline of the story). So one night, as you're leafing through the newest issue of "Darksheer" to hit the stands, a courier brings you a package which, to make a long story short, eventually transports you into the city of Noctropolis as...you guessed it...Darksheer. Coincidentally enough, your arrival as Darksheer occurs at the same time that five of Darksheer's deadliest arch-villains decide to gang up on him after they're mysteriously released from incarceration. It turns out that the real Darksheer had disappeared several weeks prior to your arrival. Nobody knows why, not even Stiletto. But now he's back! Only he's not, 'cause you're him and you have no clue what's going on. It's up to you to find out who released your enemies while simultaneously trying to keep the newly freed criminals from wreaking havoc across the city of Noctropolis. And maybe, in the process, find a way back to the real world...

Pangea: Return to Planet Earth ICE Inc. [top]

Not a "computer game" per se but more of an "interactive comic book," this is one of the earliest releases of its kind prior to the rise of CD-ROMs. Other than Infocom's short-lived Infocomics series released in late 1980s, no developer has revisited the niche genre until this release from ICE Inc, a now-defunct comic magazine company that wanted to explore the PC as a new medium for their artists' work. The first and last release in a planned series, Pangea plays like your typical Choose Your Own Adventure interactive book: you are given choices during each narrative scene, each of which leads you down a different plot branch. You can replay any 'page' you have read before, or jump to different sections of the story. The mouse-driven interface is easy to learn and use, and the presentation is good: save for the interactive buttons at the bottom, the entire screen is filled with graphics and description text. The story itself is quite interesting, although by no means original or exciting. The writing is mostly good, and the background graphics, while static, are well-designed and fit well with the narrative. Overall, Pangea is a solid effort in the short-lived genre that was reborn only shortly in mid-1990s with several interactive comic book on CD-ROMs. The story in Pangea is not one-tenth as profound as Portal, but as far as science fiction goes, it's not bad and the writing is decent.

Prince Interactive Graphix Zone / Compton's New Media [top]

Prince became a major international music star in 1984 with the release of "Purple Rain" and his blend of rock, funk, soul and dance music has kept him popular ever since. He was an early proponent of computer technology to deliver music whether it be through the internet or in a 3D multimedia experience such as this CD-ROM. At the time, Prince was in a battle with Sony over control of his music and was not using his name but instead used a symbol or glyph which looked like this stood on end... o(+> The Myst-clone type of experience is a quest to collect the five pieces of Prince's symbol, as you go through each beautifully rendered "virtual reality" world of his Foyer, Studio, Library, Grand Hallway, Dance Club, Boudoir, Virtual Video Room and Candle Room. The structure you journey through is also in the shape of the artist's symbol. There are 11 simple puzzles to solve in order to get clues to play videos and collect the pieces that when all gathered you will see a special final exclusive video. There are hundreds of music samples, video clips, and interactive objects many of which provide a history of Prince's life, music, albums, posters and friends. There are several mini games such as a working mixing console and DJ deck. There are four full-length music videos, including two new songs: 'Interactive' and 'Endorphin Machine.' The music studio has a karaoke version of 'Kiss,' and in the private club Eric Clapton, Little Richard, George Clinton, and Miles Davis share their views about him.

Psychotron, The Merit Studios / The Multimedia Store [top]

This is a strange adventure from somewhere in the wilds of Texas. It's a truly offbeat game, sort of a short Mission Impossible episode starring you. The format is first-person with very mixed media, from live-action video to computer-generated environments. The game begins with your character meeting with the President of the United States, no less (some rabid Texan), and the director of the FBI. The Director becomes your key contact for the game. He gives you your assignment, which involves tracking down a very strange government science project that has gone missing. The game consists of interacting and interviewing witnesses in the case (video) and exploring the relevant environments for clues (graphics). The game takes up only about 50% of your screen, which is probably a good thing, as it makes the videos look a lot better than if you run them at full screen. The highlight of the game is a sequence in which you have to play poker with a trio of Mafia thugs. It's a very tricky situation, as any wrong comment (or bet!) can get you killed in a hurry. This is a short game, but it's fun while it lasts. Except for the FBI Director, the acting is uniformly terrible.

Riddle Of The Maze Fathom Pictures / Interplay [top]

This is a rare game based on Christopher Manson's interactive book Maze. Yes indeedy, this game is simply one giant maze. Now before I hear groans from those who spent days trapped in any number of mindless adventure game mazes, let me clarify this a bit. The is not your mama's adventure game maze. This is something new entirely. The book itself has a very devoted following. Upon release, this was billed as "The World's Most Challenging Puzzle". This may take you quite a few days, and some extensive notes, to navigate. The story is simple. You are deposited in front of the Maze, as a member of a group touring it, given instructions and clues from a voice-over guide, and are told to go ahead and go on in. The entrance looks a bit like a museum or old house that you might visit. The purpose of the game is to find your way to the center of the Maze, gathering clues along the way, solve the riddle at the center, and find your way back out via the shortest route. The graphics are reproductions of the rooms from the pages of the book, which are illustrated with Manson's original art. Each room is entirely different, and each contains clues to solve the riddle as well as doors to other rooms. Clues are found in the artwork of the room and in animations. Each has its own bit of prose delivered by your guide, designed to give you further clues as well. I found the illustrations very reminiscent of the style of Edward Gorey or Charles Addams—they are extremely well-designed and slightly surreal. Each room is a puzzle and has clues to figure out from examination. These aren't puzzles in the normal adventure game sense, these are puzzles where you look at the picture in front of you to determine what it means. The goal is to find the shortest route to the center and back while solving the puzzle in the center room, once you determine what that puzzle is. The ideal number of steps that can be done in and back out of the maze is 16.

Sinkha: The 3D Multimedia Novel Marco Patrito / Virtual Views / Mojave [top]

In this 3-D multimedia novel, Hyleyn is a young girl trapped in the slums of Thalissar, an enclosed city on an environmentally inhospitable planet. No one important remains - the rich and powerful leave, and those who cannot are relegated to a seedy, backwater existence amid the incessantly howling, eerie winds of the decaying megalopolis. Outside contact is minimal. From time to time the Corporation sends out a ship to ensure its interests are maintained, and even more rarely Thalissar is visited by the Sinkhas who are immortal beings who maintain benign order in the net of aligned worlds. They travel aboard the living starship Darcon, and each has the guise of one of the races that inhabit the net worlds. Mortals fear to look upon them, but Hyleyn seeks them out, desperate to plead for her escape from Thalissar. She has also fallen in love with a Sinkha, the silver-haired Aker. Her wish is granted and she is shuttled to the Darcon, where she experiences virtual tableaux of beauty and peace, richly colored, clean and soothing. For the first time in her life she also hears quiet, finally away from the mysterious, maddening winds of Thalissar. Her newfound peace is shortlived however, as the Darcon moves to investigate unusual readings on the planet's surface and the incomprehensible crash of a Corporation ship at the source of these signals. Sinkha is a visually stunning work that braids multimedia features tightly with the graphic novel concept. It is baroquely detailed, lavishly textured and generously lathered with realistic animation and 3-D. The score is digital in flavor and the sound effects well chosen - the viscous lap of detritus-laden waters on metal, the drone of high powered winds and dynamos. Although visually complex, the actual story is muddled and hackneyed, degrades quickly and the characters have about as much emotional depth as sock puppets. However, this production is fabulous because the artistic and design elements are so strong (if a bit derivative of H.R. Giger).

Skyworker [G] Art Department Werbeagentur GmbH / Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie [top]

It's the 22nd century. To unburden the situation in the crowded cities huge platforms with research facilities, factories and living areas have been built in the sky. You play a young man or woman who has just finished school and gets the chance to live in SkyCity, one of those platforms. But there is one condition. You have to find an apprenticeship within three months if you don't want to be sent back to the surface. Skyworker is a game by the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Labour that simulates the application process for an apprenticeship. In fact, Skyworker is a life simulation. With your teleporter you visit different locations in the city like a bar, a casino, drugstores or shops where you can buy things and meet people who give you tips about applications or other locations in the city. To earn money you can do temporary jobs which are presented as a mini-game in which you have to arrange figures by their appearance for instance. Within three months you have to find an apprenticeship. If you are not sure for what job you want to apply for you can go to career counselling. In multiple choice questions they try to find out which job suits to you. Afterwards you can go to a training center where you can improve your skills. After having created a curriculum vitae you can contact enterprises and are invited to an interview in which the boss tries to find out if you have appropriate skills and are informed about the content of the job you are applying for. The next day you get either a declination or an invitation to an aptitude test. The test consists of 14 exercises about general education, logical thinking and mathematics. If you pass the test, you have the job but the game won't be over yet.

Space Ace Don Bluth Studios, RDI Video Systems / ReadySoft Incorporated [top]

Following the earlier pc versions of floppy disks being truncated and split into Space Ace and Space Ace II Borf's Revenge, this was a direct conversion of the Laserdisc games series to cd-rom. You're playing Dexter, a guy fighting the evil madman Borf who has kidnapped your girlfriend Kimberly and is now threatening the world with his dreaded weapon, the "Infanto Ray" which turns adults into small children. The game plays like a comic strip - visuals are similar to many cartoon movies. In each scene you only have to decide which direction of the keyboard has to be hit in order to avoid one of the countless death screens and to advance to the next screen. In 1999 a DVD version was released that could be played on your television, in 2004 a version titled Space Ace HD came out that could be played in High Definition and fantastic 5.1 Surround Sound, and in Aug/2013, a Steam version was released to run on modern o/s.

Spaceship Warlock Reactor Inc. [top]

The Terran Empire no longer rules the galaxy. After a pan-galactic battle that lasted a thousand years, mankind lost the war against the powerful Kroll Imperium, as well as their planet. The Kroll moved the planet from its orbit and hid it deep in Krollian space. You start your adventure in Stambul, a world dominated by the Kroll Imperium. You manage to leave this ugly world and board the spaceship Belshazzar, which is attacked by the pirate ship Warlock. You are captured and taken aboard the pirate vessel, where you will embark on a journey across the galaxy to search for Terra, your stolen planet. Spaceship Warlock is a science fiction game with a 3rd-person perspective and simple mouse control. The player can pick up things one by one, and collected items are shown in the right bottom corner (the game doesn't have an inventory). It was originally published for the Macintosh in 1990 and ported for the PC in 1994. Despite its age it includes music, voices and lots of animations, and it even runs on Windows XP. It was one of the first CGI, interactive movies offered on CD-ROM - a compliment often given to Myst - but it also had a fair share of setbacks. For one, its initial version was released on Macintosh exclusively, with its PC version not released until much later, when PC gamers had already played many similar games. Second, its CGI graphics were rendered at a time when it took several weeks to produce any one scene, so such scenes in the game were very few (ie, the game was terribly short!). It also was a CD-only game, at a time when few people had such CD-ROMs for their systems (yet). Even so, it had many pluses. Its storyline, at least, was quite unique. The premise was good, as was one of the first offerings of a fully-voiced "interactive movie," with lip-synched characters, amusing sound effects, and cool event music.

Superhero League of Hoboken Legend Entertainment Company [top]

This is an adventure/RPG hybrid set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland in the northeastern US. Toxic pollution and war have reduced the US to a state of anarchy except for the occasional city-state. You are The Crimson Tape, new leader of the Superhero League of Hoboken, with the amazing power to Create Organizational Charts. You'll be joined by Tropical Oil Man ("capable of raising the cholestoral level of his opponents"), Robomop ("an intelligent kitchen appliance capable of cleaning up almost any mess"), Iron Tummy ("capable of eating spicy foods without any distress"), Captain Excitement (his "aura of lethargy and dullness can put many opponents to sleep instantly"), and Mademoiselle Pepperoni ("capable of seeing inside a pizza box without even opening it"). The goal of the game is to complete missions assigned by the Commissioner and relayed via the League's computer, Matilda. Gradually, you'll raise Hoboken League's ranking, and finally be able to take on the evil Dr. Entropy who is seeking to thwart the rebirth of civilization. As your League's ranking and prestige grow, new superheroes will join up and make your life easier. Gameplay includes standard third-person adventure game interaction similar to other late Legend Entertainment games such as Companions of Xanth and Death Gate, top-down map exploration, and turn-based combat (similar to Bard's Tale). Heroes have the usual range of stats (brawn, brains, toughness, and health) and equipment slots, along with their superpowers.

The Vortex: Quantum Gate II Hyperbole Studios [top]

In this sequel, you assume the role of Drew Griffin, a young soldier recruited to fight a war against an anthropomorphic alien race on a distant world. The year is 2057. Due to severe environmental pollution, Earth has only five years to live. Only a rare mineral exists on the planet AJ3905 can reverse this environmental Armageddon. At the end of the original Quantum Gate, you and your comrades are transported through an interplanetary device called the Quantum Gate to destroy the alien inhabitants in order to excavate the needed minerals. Through your Virtual Reality tophat display, they appear in the form of alien bugs. When your tophat suddenly malfunctions, however, you discover that you have been tricked by your commanding officer Colonel Saunders to destroy a seemingly peaceful race known as the Aylinde instead. It's played entirely from a first person perspective. Various icons appear intermittently during playback of Full Motion Videos that convey the story throughout the game. By clicking on these icons, it allows the player to make inquires, guide Drew’s actions, or display emotions. The emotion can be anger, balance, or sorrow. Some icons trigger supplemental videos to simulate various moments of flashbacks by Drew. Responses differ depending on the player's choices. An unprecedented six hours of digital video is backed by a Hollywood quality production, with over 30 professional actors forming the cast. Photorealistic 16-bit graphics provide an immersing environment that can be explored in detail. The story is engaging and has an unexpected ending.

Tom Long: The Time Adventure [G] Promotion Software [top]

This German adventure served as a promotion game for the food company McCain. It is only available in german language. Tom's girlfriend is trapped in a computer game and only he can free them. The graphics are very like LucasArts' Day of the Tentacle. The puzzles are well made, but the dialogue can be sometimes very confusing.

Tsarevna: A Medieval Russia Quest Yavsoft [top]

Bob Bisquit is an American on a quest to win the heart of a beautiful Russian princess. Only the one who will find Tsarevna's real name can marry her, and thus Bob's journey begins. Tsarevna is a puzzle-solving point-and-click adventure game, with cartoon-like 2D graphics reminiscent of the first two Monkey Island games and other adventure titles of the early nineties. Puzzle solving is not the only aspect coming into picture in this game; players also get to take a look at life of a medieval Russian city (based on true historical facts!).

Under A Killing Moon Access Software, Inc. [top]

It's December, 2042. And you're the only P.I. that follows the old steps of Philip Marlow, Spade, and other classic detectives. This time, the world depends upon you. How? Why? It's not for me to tell. Take your gun, and see what'll be next. Well, you'll drop it via the window accidentally, but I guess that won't stop you from solving the case. Under A Killing Moon, unlike the Tex Murphy adventures that came before it, takes place in a world whose locations are pure 3D in which you have full maneuverability. You can even look for clues underneath desks, chairs, etc. Other features include an online hint system (that decreases your final score the more you use it), extensive support for additional sound/music devices, and full-motion video technology.

Universe Core Design Ltd. [top]

Universe is a decent sci-fi adventure that features some interesting gadget-oriented puzzles, although the banal plot and bad writing sink the game to obscurity. Nevertheless, Core Design's second effort in the adventure genre is a better game in every respect than the awful Curse of Enchantia. The interface is also rather awkward, so only those with a lot of patience will go through this long journey through different sparsely-populated planets. It is no wonder why Core never tried their hands at writing another adventure game. Given how popular Tomb Raider has become, they have certainly found their true calling.

Virtual Pompeii SACIS / Lifestyle Software Group [top]

Almost two thousand years after the destruction of Pompeii, the mystery still enthralls people around the world. The history, the art, the life of the people are the subjects of constant research and study. Virtual Pompeii allows you to walk the streets of this ancient city, to enter its monuments and marketplaces, to view its artwork as if you were an inhabitant. Take the Tour of Pompeii and walk through the ruins of the city destroyed by volcanic eruptions in 79 A.D. Reconstructed maps point you to landmarks such as the Temple of Jupiter, the Forum and the Large Theater. Learn about the history of Pompeii: when the first inhabitants came to the ancient bed of lava; building the Temple of Apollo and the Doric Temple; the Romans conquering and ruling the island after a long siege; and finally the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. The tragic events of that night were recorded by the Roman writer Pliny the Younger. Read firsthand how Pompeii came to an end, in either English or Ancient Latin. And what of the life and art of ancient Pompeii? Virtual Pompeii provides you with detailed descriptions of the houses, public buildings and workplaces, based on extensive excavations and archeological expeditions. View the four styles of decorative art found throughout Pompeii, the paintings, the murals and the ancient friezes, as if you were there. In the Index, virtual Pompeii explains how the culture is reflected in the remains of the buildings, from the Amphitheater to the Villa of the Mysteries. Important buildings such as the Temples, unexcavated buildings and the lines of conserved walls are vividly described and depicted in text and images.

Voyeur Philips POV Entertainment Group / Entertainment Software Partners / Interplay Productions [top]

For better or worse, the developer and publisher of Voyeur have raised the question of what constitutes appropriate content in family entertainment with the release of this title. Originally released for CD-I in 1994, the game has generated much controversy with its adult subject matters which no doubt has boosted its sales. Not surprisingly, Interplay Productions attempts to cash in on its popularity by porting it to the PC market. You are a private investigator hired by a member of the wealthy Hawke family in order to gain enough evidence to bring down the corrupt Reed Hawke who is the CEO of Hawke Industries and has gathered the Hawke family together for the weekend to prepare for his announcement that he will be running for President of the United States. You control various hidden cameras located through the Hawke family home in an effort to gather enough evidence to destroy Reed Hawke's career. The format of the game was similar to that of the Digital Pictures full motion video games such as Night Trap and Double Switch, with two important differences. The first major difference was that Voyeur's full motion video included female nudity and simulated sex scenes giving the game a warning label on its box about its mature subject matter. This is in contrast to full motion video games such as Night Trap where everything was kept within the equivalence of a PG-13 rating. The second major difference was that the playable character's client was different every game and thus the storyline would change slighty. While Night Trap and Double Switch did have multiple endings, most of them if you failed, the storyline did not change.

Who Shot Johnny Rock? American Laser Games [top]

This is a live-action full motion video laserdisc video game released in the arcade, as well as game platforms including the PC. The game is set a Hollywood version of 1920s Chicago, where one plays a private detective that has been hired to find out who murdered a nightclub singer named Johnny Rock; the woman turns out to have been Rock's fiancee, Red. The player must attempt to reach Johnny Rock's killer, shooting villains and interrogating individuals. The game takes the player through the gangs of four gangsters with suggestive names - Measles, Mumps, Smallpox and Lockjaw Lil - and locations such as a chemical factory, a pool hall, a garage and a casino. The format is a first-person perspective of the player watching the full motion video, listening to the various characters and shooting the right enemies at the right time with a powerful tommy gun. Unlike previous games, such as Mad Dog McCree and Crime Patrol, the player's tommy gun does not need to be reloaded, but one does need to buy extra ammunition. Also, when health is lost, the player needs to have enough money to be able to pay the city doctor to give him or her extra life. If money runs out, the game is over. The player must also try to avoid hitting innocent bystanders, as doing so results in having to pay funeral expenses. Along the way, clues have to be collected and it is them that will eventually allow the player to determine Johnny Rock's murderer; one of the final sequences takes place in Rock's mansion, where a final clue will point to the killer, who must be eliminated to end the game. As in most rail shooters by American Laser Games, the PC version includes mouse and light gun support; the latter are used to select locations, shoot enemies and reload. The game was re-released by Digital Leisure around 2003 with updated video and sound, in addition to several bonus options.

Woodruff and The Schnibble of Azimuth Coktel Vision / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

After a devastating atomic war, the world population was nearly annihilated, and the survivors had to hide deep underground. In the meantime, a peaceful race of human-like creatures, the boozooks, populated the Earth. After the humans ascended to the surface again, they started a bloody war against this race. The boozooks were mercilessly destroyed, their culture demolished, and in the end of the war the boozooks became the slaves of the humans. You play the role of Woodruff, a boy whose foster father, professor Azimuth, was kidnapped by government officials. Apparently, the professor was developing a strange device called "schnibble", which had something to do with the liberation of the boozooks. Woodruff must find his father, dethrone the evil Bigwig and his corrupt government, and save the boozookian people. This is an adventure game with a lot of tricky puzzles, similar in style and design to the famous Gobliiins games by the same creators. Unlike Gobliins, this is a full-fledged adventure where you can move around freely and interact with many characters.

Wrath Of The Gods Luminaria Inc. / Maxis [top]

Arguably the best game based on Greek mythology ever made, Wrath of the Gods puts you in the sandals of an orphan who discovers that he's actually Zeus' son and must accomplish heroic deeds to earn his place on Olympus. Puzzles are fun, but easy for those familiar with Greek myths (e.g. how Hercules slay the Hydra). Cheesy acting is compensated for by excellent on-line database of Greek myths and hints, and numerous locations. The game's fatal flaw is that it was poorly coded Windows 3.1 engine led to very SLOW speed that's almost unplayable on a 386. But it's a flaw that's no longer relevant with today's computers.

American Poetry: The Nineteenth Century The Voyager Company [top]

Want a chill to go down your spine? Listen to Allan Gurganus reading Paul Laurence Dunbar's "When Malindy Sings." Or try Stanley Crouch reading "Casey at the Bat," or Cynthia Ozick matched with Poe's "The Conqueror Worm." Nearly six hours of audio (recorded at the poetry reading hosted by Garrison Keillor to celebrate the book's publication) are a wonderful reminder that much of this material was written to be read aloud, in an era when poetry was part of everyday life. There's lovely music, too: spirituals performed by the Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble, folk music, and entertaining parlor songs. The greatest pleasure, though, lies in the sheer quantity and diversity of the material on the CD. We had no idea that early American poets came in so many shapes and sizes--solitary visionaries and congenial storytellers, humorists and dissidents, songwriters and philosophers, immigrants and Native Americans--and all their voices are represented. Some we expected: Emerson, Bryant, Longfellow, Whittier, Melville, Whitman. Others surprised: the actress Fanny Kemble, Presidents Lincoln and Adams, Zuni storytellers, Edith Wharton. So did the forms: comic light-verse, recitation pieces from the days when schoolchildren were routinely required to "speak a piece," dialect poems, healing rituals, ballads, and children's verse. It's the rare reference work that's encyclopedic without being stuffy, but American Poetry pulls it off. Just for fun we searched on "prairie," and rambled from Melville's "Clara: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land" ("the breath of Sharon's prairie land") to Emily Dickinson's "Vast Prairies of Air" to Bret Harte to Emma Lazarus's "In Exile" ("Up from the prairie the tanned herds-men pass") to a Blackfeet Indian "Song for a Fallen Warrior" ("You will scalp the enemy in the green prairie") and ended with an endearing song called "Sweet Betsy from Pike" ("Their wagons broke down with a terrible crash /And out on the prairie rolled all kinds of trash"). English homework never used to be this entertaining. The poems are a pleasure to read against handsome backdrops of period paintings, and students will appreciate the timeline, biographical notes, annotations, and extensive indexes. American Poetry combines The Library of America two-volume edition into a single definitive reference, and serves an extraordinary cultural legacy very well indeed.

Aviation Reference Library & Aircraft Encyclopedia: You can navigate via a globe for locations, a time line, or category buttons (Early Aviation, for instance). A picture will be displayed while the narration scrolls below simultaneously with the audio. By moving the pointer around in the picture window, note balloons give additional information; click on a note balloon, and you will travel to a different entry about a related subject. By clicking on a word in the text window, you can locate index entries to articles in which that word appears; click on the name of the entry you want to see. You can also print text or images. Information from the reference library forms the basis for the Trivia Quiz. Aviation Theater: After selecting a category, make selections by clicking on the frames at the right of the movie screen. Three categories of video clips are available: Bloopers - humorous narration accompanies short video clips, Documentaries - historic and informational, but long and boring compared to other parts of the program, Historical - These clips have no narration, but many are stunning. Don't miss the Blue Angels' impressive precision flying. Click on members of the audience for a surprise. Aviation Lab: Ten different aircraft are available for inspection. You can view the exterior, or a cutaway diagram of the interior. Text will be read and scroll below the picture window. Paper Plane Factory: Learn to fold various paper airplanes by looking at the step-by-step images of the paper plane in the picture window, by listening to and reading the instructions. You can stop after each step and even move back or forward a step at a time as needed. Certain principles of flight (such as balance and angle of attack) are also explained. Glider Game: Follow the visual instructions to make several complex paper gliders. Aviation Museum: Move through rooms, doors, and hallways suggestive of a Doom game. Click on pictures to hear and read more about them. The Dogfight Theater is a must see. Aviation Adventure Trivia Quiz: Each multiple choice question offers four different pictures with sound narration and/or balloons explaining each suggested choice. Humor is at its best in this section. Great audio reinforcers (That's Right! Good work! You're joking, right? Whoa! Try again!) for each question. For each level you will see an animated cartoon clip if you do well, or documentary disaster clip if you do poorly. You can press the hint button to get 60 seconds to try finding the answer in the library/encyclopedia section. Flight Simulator: The user must become familiar with a number of commands on the keyboard before embarking on the training flight, much less an actual mission. With sufficient time and practice, you might actually become a proficient pilot.

Cinema Volta Voyager Company, The [top]

Cinema Volta is a memoir, a quirky performance piece, an ear-popping and eye-grabbing reverie about electricity and its transforming power. In twelve stories that pulsate and migrate across the screen, narrator Jim Petrillo considers the strange lives of great inventors of the nineteenth century: Alessandro Volta, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Samuel Morse, and Nicola Tesla. But don't expect a dry treatise on the history of science. Petrillo's idiosyncratic perspective takes in the history of Sicily; Shelley and Byron's shenanigans during the summer of 1816 (Byron's daughter, Ada, wrote the first computer program); Joyce's X-rated love letters to Nora (the program takes its name from a movie theater opened by Joyce in Trieste in 1909); the cave paintings of Lascaux; Frankenstein; naked people; vampires; big noise; and the artist's own childhood memories. Often ironic (electricity was first used, he notes, to make dead frogs twitch), Petrillo's commentary weaves together an arresting collage of images and text. The subtitle promises "Weird Science and Childhood Memories." Weird it is, and not for everyone. But like any cult favorite, it has its fans.

Combining interviews, historical footage, animation, and montages of comic book art, Comic Book Confidential traces the development of the comic book from the very first (Funnies on Parade), in 1933, through counterculture favorites (Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) to the hippest representatives of the 1980s comic book revival (The Dark Knight returns). Ron Mann's witty, incisive movie in QuickTime contains interviews with influential authors and artists of commercial, alternative, and underground comics. Many read from their works: Marvel master Stan Lee brings Spiderman's money worries to life; Charles Burnes becomes Big Baby; Jack Kirby reenacts the birth of Caption America. The CD-ROM adds over 120 pages of comics by the film's featured artists. Scott McCloud, author of "Understanding Comics", provides new introductions. Also included are biographies of all the artists, and checklists of their published works. It all adds up to a new way to explore America's only purely indigenous art form. The only comprehensive documentary of comics and their creators ever made, Comic Book Confidential contains a wealth of rare historic footage. Witness Congressional hearings from the 50s "proving" the link between comic books and juvenile delinquency. See reformed youths gleefully piling contraband comics onto a modern bonfire of the vanities.

Crime Patrol American Laser Games [top]

This takes the familiar live action, first-person target shooting formula and ups the ante in terms of realism and interactive intensity. Players join the police force and engage in a number of harrowing law enforcement situations, including a bank holdup, a gang fight, a crack house bust, a nuclear power plant takeover and, scariest of all, a terrorist/hostage crisis that takes place on an airplane and in an airport. Television reporters appear onscreen, commenting on whether the player has shot bad guys or innocents, and the situations in the game vary depending on how successfully the targets have been shot and other factors. Real actors and Hollywood stunt men add verisimilitude to the proceedings. The player is employed in the police force and works his way up from Rookie to Delta Force, achieved through systematically neutralizing threats which appear in various environments and scenarios. With your gun (or mouse, depending on if you use the computer version), you shoot down gangsters, murderers, druglords and terrorists in various tactical situations, only to ultimately face a serious nuclear threat in the final scenario. There are four levels which the player completes one by one, not counting the shooting range, which one can access to improve his or her aim and reflexes. As a Rookie, the player teams up with a somewhat boisterous policewoman, taking on shoplifters, armed robbers and gang members. After getting promoted to Undercover, the player gets a slightly overweight male partner and confronts drug smugglers and crimelords in a nightclub, impound lot and airport. Next, in SWAT, bank robbers and terrorists become the enemies. Finally, in Delta Force, the player must stand up to criminals who are a serious threat to national security, such as a hijacked shipment of Nuclear material, hijacked planes, and assassination attempts. Each part of the game is made up of three separate scenarios, with one final mission involving a plot to steal plutonium that is filmed partly in nightvision, awaits the player who can complete all of those in Delta Force. The game was re-released by Digital Leisure around 2003 with updated video and sound, in addition to several bonus options.

Drug Wars: Crime Patrol 2 American Laser Games, Inc. [top]

This live-action laserdisc video game is the sequel to the relatively popular arcade game Crime Patrol, with very similar gameplay, objectives and scenery. As all titles released by the company, Drug Wars is often criticized for its rather laughable acting, lack of storyline creativity, and heavy reliance on cartoon clichés. The seventh live-action shooting game released by American Laser Games hardly varies at all in gameplay from similar titles, such as Mad Dog McCree and The Last Bounty Hunter. Almost all possible choices are made by aiming the pistol the main character has at his disposal; this includes shooting enemies, reloading, selecting locations, options and pathways. When the player does not react in time and gets shot by a criminal, or happens to hit an innocent civilian, he or she loses a life, and is scolded, often sarcastically, by the partner assigned to the particular geographical location. The number of bullets in the gun's chamber is limited, but the weapon can be reloaded at any time. The player steps into the shoes of an anonymous Drug Enforcement Administration member whose goal is to track down and detain or eliminate a dangerous drug baron residing in South America, thus destroying his illegal cartel. Along the way, the agent will have to render any opposition harmless by any means necessary, as is the case in most other American Laser Games releases. As in Crime Patrol, the player battles criminals and other villains in several widely varying environments. In the original game, however, the main character advances from the "Rookie" level to the "Delta Force" level, while in Drug Wars, he does not get promoted at any point, simply moving on from one location to another with few complex aims. Beginning in Sierra County, New Mexico, the agent continues to fight crime in Chicago, the United States-Mexico border and, finally, the baron's residence in South America. In each of these locations, the player can choose from three different assignments; when all three are complete, he moves on to the next location. The game is finished successfully by reaching and neutralizing the drug lord. The game was re-released by Digital Leisure around 2003 with updated video and sound, in addition to several bonus options.

Ephemeral Films 1931-1960 The Voyager Company [top]

Why "ephemeral"? Sponsored by corporate America, these films were designed as advertisements for a lifestyle and were never intended to be preserved. Luckily, media archaeologist Rick Prelinger saw them for what they are: rare artifacts that reveal the cultural values and social mores of the day (or at least the gospel according to Oldsmobile, Proctor & Gamble, and Esso). They had us both laughing and cringing. Mostly paid for by big corporations, the films in the CD's first section document the golden age of American industry. These forerunners to infomercials promote products--and, along with them, a world view in which Roll-Oh the Robot (your chromium-plated butler), GM's "Futurama" exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair, and the miracle of television promise progress without end. And once technology has set us free, the second half of the program, a paean to unbridled consumerism, has plenty of tips on how to handle that newfound leisure. Check out "What to Do on a Date" (weenie roast or taffy pull?), "Two-Ford Freedom" (a second car will set her free), "American Look" (choose among many beautiful products), and "The Relaxed Wife" (tranquilizers). Prelinger's perceptive commentaries point out the dark side of the American dream as well: the shameless relegation of women to the domestic realm, and a society realizing that all was not quite right in postwar suburbia.

First Emperor of China, The Voyager Company, The [top]

In March 1974, peasants digging a new well near Zian, China's ancient capital, unearthed fragments of a life-size terra cotta statue of a warrior. Archaeologists rushed to the site and discovered that the soldier was a small portion of the huge tomb complex of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang Di, who unified China, standardized Chinese writing, and oversaw the completion of the Great Wall. The First Emperor of China brings the treasures of Qin Shi Huang Di to CD-ROM. A breathtaking array of audio-visual information is provided, including original film footage of the first days of the excavation, archival materials, a tour through the Qin Museum of Warriors and Horses, aerial motion photography of the Great Wall, and bilingual English/Chinese commentary by the head of the excavation team and other scholars.

First Person: Stephen Jay Gould - On Evolution Voyager Company, The [top]

Another virtually flawless CD-ROM from Voyager Company, First Person: Stephen Jay Gould - on Evolution was the first release in Voyager's short-lived "First Person" series of CD-ROMs that showcase some of the most brilliant and influential thinkers of our world today. This CD-ROM features Dr. Stephen Jay Gould, a prolific evolution biologist at Harvard who has written hundreds of insightful essays on evolution, and who is arguably the best "popularizer" of natural science today. In addition to including the fully indexed, searchable text of his best-selling book "Bully for Brontosaurus," the CD-ROM features an original 60-minute video lecture by Dr. Gould on Darwin's discoveries. The lectures are extensively annotated and cross-referenced to the included essays on the CD-ROM, and Dr. Gould is as lively and accessible on video as he is in real life. He has a real talent in explaining sometimes hard-to-grasp concepts in layman terms, without ever resorting to "dumbing down" his subjects. Whether or not you have an interest in evolution history, First Person: Stephen Jay Gould is a must-have CD-ROM that will broaden your perspective and knowledge about one of the most important scientific discoveries in history. Highly recommended.

Gingerbread Man, The Residents' The Cryptic Corporation, Ion [top]

Gingerbread Man is an album by The Residents, released in 1994. It was their first foray into computer graphics. Original versions of the CD were "enhanced" with animations that followed the music when played on a computer. The album explores the personalities of nine characters and their "rather strange outlooks on life". Each character, according to The Residents, has the Gingerbread Man in them somewhere, represented in the music by the Gingerbread Man theme: Run, run, as fast as you can You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man. Each of the songs have the same general format: a 30-second introduction (which usually features the Gingerbread Man theme) followed by a verse sung by the character, and then a mix of comments and thoughts by the character over music which expands on the themes in the verse, given the listener glimpses into the person's thoughts. The interactive CD-ROM program also uses the same format, letting the user play his or her keyboard like a visual instrument by triggering various images, sounds, texts, and effects through the keyboard and mouse. The album is a series of audio portraits done in a unifying style (much as the busts created for the album are all very similar in style but different in details) rather than as a collection of distinct songs. The animations served as a basis for the costumes of the characters when a number of the songs were performed in the 25th anniversary shows in 1997. Later the same year regular CDs, with just the music, were released. The inside cover of the album special edition was held together with a branded label of Velcro. The music tracks are as follows: The Weaver - The fool and the death-maker die alone, The Dying Oilman - Blinded by the hostages of fortune, The Confused Transsexual - Stamen and pistillate together again, The Sold-Out Artist - Black are the legs inside the white sepulchre, The Ascetic - Shadows doubt the strength of the sun, The Old Soldier - Safety sells but war always wins, The Aging Musician - Narcissus knows no one naked, The Butcher - The flesh of animals angers anew… and moos, The Old Woman - Kissless are the isolated, rootless are their tongues, Ginger's Lament.

Horde, The Toys for Bob / Crystal Dynamics, Inc. [top]

You are Chauncey, a serving lad who saves his monarch from choking on his meal. The King rewards you with his magical sword, Grimthwacker, and a village, and the mission to go forth and prosper by felling waves of Hordlings, who are bent on eating everything in the province. The better you get at defending villagers, crops, and cows from Hordlings, the better equipped you become. Success wins you further favor from the King, along with bigger challenges and more enmity from the evil High Chancellor. There are several types of Hordlings, each with their peculiar style of picking through the edibles under your care. Success is measured by how many villagers and crops survive each season's gluttonous attacks. It was an unusual hybrid of action and strategy game for the time. It also featured full-motion video sequences featuring a number of actors including Kirk Cameron as Chauncey and Michael Gregory as Kronus Maelor. Video sequences were reduced to slideshows (with full sound) in some versions.

Isaac Asimov Science Adventure 2 Knowledge Adventure [top]

This "edutainment" package represents the strengths and weaknesses of CD-ROM software. On the plus side, its images, sound and video bring science to life in a package that is fun, clever and nonthreatening. It is surprising how animating even the simplest things - the dance of the planets around the sun, or a rotating human skull - can be so compelling. Players can watch their effective weight change on a roller coaster, view film clips or microscopic slides, wander through Stonehenge, roam 150 connected rooms in a "hyper gallery" of science, and enter contests testing knowledge. But it works better as a way to browse science than as an efficient school-project research tool. The 1,000 articles are a bit short, the typical CD-ROM pace a bit slow and the software doesn't quite match the search-and-linking elegance of a good encyclopedia program such as Microsoft "Encarta." The program attempts to serve ages from 6 to adult and players can toggle between kid-level and adult-level narration. For all but prodigies, however, this package works best for ages 10 or 12 and above. On balance, this is an excellent way for parents and children to explore science. If users regard it as a fun museum and not a substitute for the library, they'll have a great time.

Another big difference to other football games is that you don't watch polygon players - all possible moves and outcomes were filmed with real football players.

You must fight your way across the countryside coming face to face with Indians, Latinos, and of course Mad Dog's men. Get the treasure before Mad Dog, and win the game. This PC conversion seems to have been tweaked a bit to be more stable than the original Mad Dog. There's also somewhat limited replay value as you can choose from 3 different guides for 3 different routes through the game.

Microsoft Multimedia Beethoven: The Ninth Symphony The Voyager Company / Microsoft Home [top]

As part of the Microsoft multimedia series on great composers, Multimedia Beethoven focuses on what many critics consider the greatest piece of music ever written. Certainly one of the most recognizable themes in the world, The Ninth Symphony is performed by the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt, and accompanied by the Viennese State Opera, led by chorus master Wilhelm Pitz. Interactive and cross-linked sections provide background and insight into the life and times of Ludwig van Beethoven. You'll be introduced to classical music in "The Art of Listening," which features commentary by musical scholar and pianist Robert Winter of American Public Radio. "Beethoven's World" offers insight into the cultural, social, and political influences of the time period, while the "Pocket Audio Guide" features a map of the symphony with options to hear any of the major themes from the four movements. Each movement is further organized by exposition, development, recapitulation, and coda.

Poetry in Motion The Voyager Company [top]

When you read a poem, you can sit back and think about it; when you hear it performed, all the passion and personality emerges.

Poetry in Motion features performances, interviews, and original texts by Helen Adam, Miguel Algarin, Amiri Baraka, Ted Berrigan, Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, John Cage, Jim Carroll, Jayne Cortez, Robert Creeley, Christopher Dewdney, Diane DiPrima, Kenward Elmslie, Four Horsemen, Alan Ginsberg, John Fiorno, Michael McClure, Ted Milton, Michael Ondaatje, Ed Sanders, Ntozake Shange, Gary Snyder, Tom Waits and Anne Waldman.

Space Pirates American Laser Games, Inc. [top]

Space Pirates is a live-action laserdisc video game considered one of the poorer releases by the company, due to badly digitized special effects, poor acting and an overly simple plotline, though the latter is often an argument against most of the American Laser Games releases. The player assumes the role of a "Star Ranger" who picks up and responds to a transmission by Ursula Skye, the commander of a starship called Colonial Star One. The SOS call lets the player know that the ship has been invaded by an evil group called the Black Brigade, led by Captain Tallinn. As the entire colony on board the ship is in danger, the player answers the distress call and attempts to confront the Brigade. The player's goal is to eliminate all the opposing villains, and ultimately Captain Tallinn, and destroy the Black Brigade's ship, the Black Dragon. The final objective must be completed using the Star-Splitter Cannon, whose elements - as well as the crystals needed to power it - are spread throughout various locations, from which they must be collected and used to assemble the weapon. The player rarely makes decisions other than selecting a planet and shooting villains. The action is propelled automatically, and only stops when one fails to kill a foe - who, in such cases, does not spare the player - or hits an innocent civilian or colonist. When this happens, energy units are deducted from the Star Ranger's life-support system, and a short clip is shown in which an old man gives general advice and scolds the player for the mistake made. The Star Ranger's weapon of choice is a laser gun, which also happens to be used by the Black Brigade. The energy in the gun is limited, but can be quickly restored an infinite number of times. The gun is also used to choose paths and make simple decisions like shooting the appropriate spot in order to free prisoners.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Interactive Technical Manual Michael Okuda and Rick Sternbach, Imergy / Simon & Schuster [top]

This is an in-depth description of the technology and equipment used aboard the USS Enterprise-D in Star Trek: The Next Generation. The CD-ROM also featured interactive tours of certain areas of the Enterprise. For the most part, the information is the same information contained in the paper version of the Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual. However, the use of Apple's then-new Quicktime VR software allows a fully interactive exploration of many areas of the ship. Various sets from the TV show were photographed thousands of times, at various angles. These photographs were then stitched together to allow 360 degree viewing at a number of points in each location. It is possible to zoom into many control panels, and to closely examine a number of objects. Some control panels are interactive and can trigger sequences, such as transporting or firing phasers. Movement within the ship is performed either by a simple jump from location to location, or by a animated trip through the corridor and turbolift sets. Ship ambiance is as on the TV show, with background sounds, control panel audio, and computer narration by Majel Barrett. The interactive tour option gives the user a introduction to every ship area, and is narrated by Jonathan Frakes. A version 2.0 of this program was released and distributed as a bonus disc with one of The Next Generation DVD season box sets at Best Buy. The upgrade replaced the 16-bit program with a new 32-bit version that uses QuickTime 4.0 or above.

Star Wars: Screen Entertainment LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC [top]

This CD-ROM includes different A New Hope-thematic options to use as screen savers, including: Blueprints - Blueprints of ships including details, plus indications of where is each of its parts (e.g. hyperdrive in Millennium Falcon); Cantina - A static photo of the Mos Eisley Cantina, then the system chooses one of the characters in the cantina and explains his or her story; Character biographies - Similar with the main characters in A New Hope; Darth Vader - The message "The Dark Lord of the Sith approaches" followed by a static close-up of Darth Vader, adding voice and/or breathing; Death Star Trench - An animation of the trench, at high speed. Users can choose if they want only an X-Wing, only a TIE fighter, or both (in this case, the X-Wing will be chasing the TIE); Hyperspace - A semi-static picture of the Millennium Falcon cockpit, with moving stars outside. Suddenly, Han Solo moves his arm and the stars become lines as if entering the hyperspace. After a while, Han moves again and the lines become stars. Chewbacca periodically howls; Imperial Clock - The "clock" used by Grand Moff Tarkin while reaching Yavin 4, adding a real 24- or 12-hour digital clock; Jawas - Small Jawas, droids, banthas, womp rats and Tusken Raiders move through the screen. The Jawas sometimes "open" the screen to see if there's anything of value after it. Tusken raiders "scare" the Jawas, who stop doing whatever they were doing to run away; Lightsaber Duel - Similar to Jawas, it features small Darth Vader attacking small Obi-Wan Kenobi; Poster Art - It features different posters from A New Hope; Rebel Clock - Similar to Imperial clock, with Dodonna's vision of the Battle of Yavin. It is analogical. The "Death Star" marks minutes, Yavin 4 marks hours, Death Star might be over Yavin; Scrolling Text - Text to the infinity like when beginning a movie. User can customize text (write own text). Space Battles - As seen from some window in a cruiser, small dots move against each other and shoot beams. Also, Mon Calamari cruisers, Nebulon-B frigates and Star Destroyers drift slowly across the screen. Storyboards: Real storyboards from the movie, including the script. Some of the information on the biographies became out-of-date after the release of the 1997 re-release and the prequels. It does not include any game allowing interactivity. However, the user might customize some aspects of the screen savers (number of stars, speed, etc.) The icon to execute the program was an icon of R2-D2, which was also used in the Jawas option. The screen saver was available for Windows operating system 3.0 or over as well as for Macintosh system 7.0 and above. It was released in CD-ROM and 3.5" diskette formats.

Super Dune 2 PowerC [top]

Dune 2 was THE real-time strategy game that single-handedly created a new hot genre and catapulted Westwood to fame. Two years after its release, a group of Dune 2 fans created a special version of the game called Super Dune 2, which substitutes the original 3 Houses in the game for the Mercenary, Sardaukar, and Fremen, each with unique attributes (e.g. the Mercenary is invisible to radar, but cannot create any 4-block structures). The original Houses also do not disappear, but will show up to fight you from time to time. This is an ingenious modification of a classic, but recommended for experienced players only. There is an updated version of the mod called Super Dune II Classic, published by a different author in 2009. It fixes as many glitches and bugs in Super Dune 2 as possible, while keeping the original feel and features of the mod intact.

This is Spinal Tap The Voyager Company [top]

This is the 1994 CD-ROM release of the classic rock comedy This is Spinal Tap. It was made by the Voyager Company who are famous for converting feature length movies to CD-ROM format and even predated DVDs by including extra features as well. The main disc of the set allows you to run Marti DiBergi's documentary masterpiece using a simple to use interface. You can jump to certain scenes in the movie, musical numbers or segments set in certain cities. You ture to search for certain words, phquotes said throughout the film which the search will then take you to if found. There are also two commentaries, one of which involving the three main cast members out of character. That commentary has never been featured on any DVD release since the Voyager CD-ROM release. You can even turn the volume up to 11! The bonus CD includes music videos, 10 scenes from the cutting room floor, a 16mm short DiBergi used to pitch his concept to Hollywood, assorted documents with notes scribbled in the margins, and an odd trailer about a dangerous but merry Scandinavian giant cheese festival which has absolutely nothing to do with the movie. This is a definite must have for fans of the movie.

VideoHound Multimedia Visible Ink Software [top]

This reference CD-Rom is based on the VideoHound Golden Movie Retriever books, which are basically thicker and cutesier versions of what Leonard Maltin does. This still probably wouldn't be too many folks' first choice over Cinemania, yet for families it has a slightly more kid-friendly interface, and for adult buffs who can stand the doggie icons, it offers at least one invaluable service that Microsoft's product doesn't. VideoHound retrieves a full cast list for each film, and you can click on any name and get a full list of that actor's credits - a function that, in Cinemania, is applicable only to major players. As far as powerful PC search links go, VideoHound is a bona fide pit bull. Wisely, the company seems to have strived to provide features complementary to, not so much competitive with, Cinemania's. It includes no film clips to speak of- except for one amusingly quaint section that offers brief scenes from dog movies (Lassie, meet Asta). But it does include 650 audio clips of actors and directors discussing their work (example: Robert De Niro on gaining 60 pounds for "Raging Bull"). VHS box art is included for each title. It can also claim 60,000 video reviews to Cinemania's 20,000 by virtue of coverage of a lot of non-theatrical titles - in case you require a ranking, say, of celebrity buns-of-steel tapes. It cross-references titles by a number of useful categories (such as MPAA rating and laserdisc availability). But the kludgy interface requires you to punch up separate screens to view a given films plot synopsis, credits, and reviews - Cinemania gets almost everything on one screen - and the biography section is taken from the current Who's Who in Hollywood, so you can read about Johnny Depp but not Humphrey Bogart, Ron Howard but not Alfred Hitchcock.

Warcraft: Orcs & Humans Interplay Productions / Blizzard Entertainment [top]

The Kingdom of Azeroth was relatively peaceful and ruled by King Llane. That was until a powerful mage named Medivh commanded forces that opened up a portal in the Swamp of Sorrow, leading to another world. This ushered in the Age of Chaos, as Orcs were summoned to this world and attempted to establish an empire. As the Orcish hordes swarmed from the portal, they met with the Humans of Azeroth and battles ensured. Peaceful co-existence is not an option. Only one race will attain dominance over the land. Warcraft: Orcs & Humans is the first real-time fantasy strategy game from Blizzard Entertainment. By playing either the Humans or the Orcs in this saga, two separate story lines evolve with 12 scenarios per side telling the tale of the battle for Azeroth. Players must mine gold and chop wood in order to construct buildings and create new units. From swords to sorcery, all the elements of classic fantasy are here to explore: rich forests, dark dungeons and bubbling swamps await the stalwart troops amassed to fight for dominance. Command many unique armies and creatures including Knights, Archers, Clerics, Warlocks, Daemons, Elementals, and Necromancers who are able to raise the dead. The multiplayer aspects of the game allow 2 players to challenge one another on over 20 custom maps and determine who is the supreme warlord. Head to head play is supported over modem, serial link, and IPX networks, and works cross-platform between the IBM-PC and Macintosh versions. Warcraft was a game of many "firsts" in the RTS world. It features the first random map generator, the first RTS game to support multiplayer capability, and the first to have multiple resource types to harvest.

Who Built America? Voyager Company, The [top]

One of the best history CD-ROMs ever made, Who Built America? is also one of the best CD-ROMs based on a book you'll ever find.Billed as "the definitive social history of the United States," this masterpiece offers a whole new way to experience American history, using a clever combination of text and multimedia elements including film and audio clips. The program is based on the book of the same name, which in turn was the culmination of the American Social History Project, the City University of New York's efforts to "revitalize interest in history by challenging the traditional ways that people learn about the past." The subject matter: history of the United States from the Centennial celebration of 1876 to the "Great War" of 1914. A tumultous period in US history, to say the least. In addition to the fully indexed and searchable text of the original book, Who Built America? includes over 45 minutes of archival film footage, dozens of recordings from the period, and numerous short games and quizzes to test your concentration. Like other Voyager titles, it also includes extensive research tools, including customized search, index, and clipboard capabilities that allow you to copy & paste into your own document. Too bad CUNY's second CD in this series, covering the period from 1914 to the "dawn of Atomic Age" in 1946, is far less interesting than this masterful adaptation by Voyager Company.

Wolf Manley & Associates, Inc. / Sanctuary Woods, Inc. [top]

This is a simulator for sure, but not really like the ones we are used to. It also mixes parts of an adventure game and a role-playing game but the most unique characteristic is the role you are playing. So... yeah. Wolf, and Lion for that matter, are two unique games that say they are simulators, but are much more than that. You take the role of a wolf, either in a mission (such as survive for a day) or in simulation mode, which allows you to do whatever you want. All the aspects of life as a wolf are simulated, from eating and hunting to mating and avoiding hunters. The game also features an interactive wolf encyclopaedia.

X-COM: UFO Defense / UFO: Enemy Unknown Mythos Games Ltd. / MicroProse Software, Inc. [top]

It is the year 1999 and UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) have been appearing in the night skies. Unusual events, such as violent human abductions and horrific experimentations, have struck horror into the people of Earth. The nations of the world gathered together and secretly established a covert, independent body to investigate, combat, and defeat the alien invaders. This multi-national force was named the "Extraterrestrial Combat Unit," and equipped with the best pilots, soldiers, engineers, scientists, and technology. This is a combination turn-based and real-time strategy game that requires you to use the skills of a squad leader, detective, and administrator as you operate the X-COM agency in defending the Earth against UFOs. In between isometric ground combat and exploration missions, you must gain support from the world's nations in order to maintain adequate funding for the cause. Bases and sensors are built around the globe to scan for alien activity. The fundraising, research, construction, and observation processes occur in variable real-time. Alien ships can be intercepted in orbit and, if shot down, their wreckage can be explored. Aliens might also land to terrorize a city and X-COM forces can be dispatched to the scene. Missions "in the field" are turn-based. You move your troops through the urban or rural settings looking for aliens, alien technology, and other clues. You view the battlefield from a 45-degree downward perspective and your view is limited to what is in the line-of-sight of your troops. After the battle, aliens and alien technology can be brought back to the lab and studied, to help you figure out how to defeat the aliens and save the earth.

Alge-Blaster 3 Davidson & Associates, Inc. [top]

This is the third game in the Alge-Blaster series following Alge-Blaster Plus! from 1989. This version has an overarching theme of protecting a planet from aliens and consists of four different activities. Challenger is a combination of the learn and practice activities from previous games. It consists of four components: a video chalkboard that explains a problem visually, a text version of the same problem, a practice area and a word problems area that shows how to translate words into math facts. Decoder is based on the translate activity from Alge-Blaster Plus but here each correct answer reveals a picture that is part of a rebus. Once all pictures are uncovered the player has to figure out the right mathematical word and select it from a list. Simulator is based on the graph and game activities from Alge-Blaster Plus. When choosing the point variant the player has to click on aliens on a grid that corresponds to the right coordinates. In the slopes variant the player has to use slope information to fire lasers at aliens. Red Alert is similar to Missile Command with the player having to protect cities on a planet surface by shooting at aliens that appear from the top.

Professor Frankenslime is a mad scientist who is trying to turn real people into plastic dummies, then turn them into robots that he can con-trol. From what little we know, Frankenslime has only succeeded in turn-ing one person into a plastic dummy so far, and we suspect that Harvey, the body outline sketch that you'll see in the upper corner of the Map screen, was once a real person. Albert an the KidFriends believe that with your help, Harvey can become a real live human being again. With each game you win in Body Park, a magic body part is added to Harvey, the plastic dummy. Albert figures that if all the magic parts are added to Harvey, he'll come to life and be free again. So Albert and the KidFriends—Amy, John, Manko, lmani, Pierre and Miguel, are counting on your help. Good Luck!

Cruncher, The Berkeley Learning Technologies Inc., Davidson & Associates / Knowledge Adventure [top]

This is a full-featured, easy to use spread sheet for children and adults that includes animation, speech, music, and sound effects. Using step-by-step tutorials, it teaches users ages 10 and up spreadsheet and math fundamentals. The program's real-world examples, such as party planning, family budgeting, and baseball statistics tracking, illustrate how to use math and spreadsheets in everyday life. By combining these tutorials and projects with a full-featured spreadsheet, it's easy enough for children to understand and use, but powerful enough to meet adult's spreadsheet needs. The software is also available in teacher packs, lab packs, and site licenses through Educational Resources and other educational software resellers. It has three components: tutorials, projects, and spreadsheets. Each has been designed to be easy enough for beginners yet powerful enough for adults. These components cover subjects that appeal to both groups, including family trips, party planning, and organizing all kinds of mathematical information. This approach also means that users won't outgrow it - the tutorials and projects address a range of experience levels. In addition, it features an on-line help system that is easy to use for beginners, but extensive enough for more advanced users. In the tutorials section, six examples teach topics starting with basic spreadsheet operations and progressing to the use of advanced spreadsheet features. The simplest one, "Fish Out of Water," uses pictures instead of numbers to manipulate data. Students combine a fish, a fish bowl, water and other items in spreadsheet cells; they must do this correctly for the fish to live. This demonstrates the basics of spreadsheets in a friendly and non-intimidating way. Ten different projects and templates provide real-life examples of how spreadsheets can be useful in everyday life. For example, the "Basketball Statistics" project teaches students how to calculate shooting percentages, total points, and overall percentages for their favorite basketball players. "I Want a Walkman!(TM)" teaches students how to use a spreadsheet to manage a budget. Students can track their income and expenses to show how much money they save, and how much time it will take to save the money needed for a desired purchase such as a Walkman. The spreadsheet offers features included in most business spreadsheet software, including charting and graphing capabilities with pie charts, bar and line graphs, and scatter charts; complex cell calculations; and advanced trigonometry functions. It also offers four unique features that make it ideal for beginners: A "notebook" attached to each spreadsheet - This includes a simple word processor where users can keep notes on their spreadsheets, explain formulas or write a detailed report; The "sticker picker" - A library of 100 illustrations, 13 sound effects, and 20 animations can be included anywhere in spreadsheets, charts or the notebook. Users can record their own sound effects or up to 20 seconds of spoken text. They can also create their own stickers by importing art from other programs; Text-to-speech capabilities - Users can select any words or numbers in a spreadsheet or the notebook, and it will read them aloud. This helps double-check data. In 1999, an updated version, The Cruncher 2.0 was released.

The interface and environment is especially targeted towards children and is set in Imaginopolis with the main helper being a character known as McZee. The program took place in the fictional place of Imaginopolis and had several levels of a building each with a different topic (e.g. one for creating new images, one as a gallery of existing images). The design of the program was very similar to that of its sister program Creative Writer. The program runs full screen and creates an all inclusive environment. Fine Artist was considerably more powerful than Microsoft Paint, as it included the clip art that could be easily manipulated and even sound effects that could be incorporated into the painting. Fine Artist also used sounds heavily where each tool would make a different noise.

Kids on Site Digital Pictures, Inc. [top]

Remember the days as a kid when you were fascinated with these big machines on the building site? With this game you have the opportunity to try them out! You can use either the excavator, bulldozer, steamroller or wrecking ball. The handling couldn't be easier, there are just three buttons to press: left, right and use. With each machine you get a simple task, e.g. carry three shovels of dirt on a truck. But the fun thing is that you aren't restricted to this and can just screw around. Why wreck an old house when the pit latrine is so much more tempting? The whole game is presented in full motion video - the reactions are very humorous and with a fair share of slapstick. To improve the long time motivation there are even multiple videos for every action, e.g. the first time you break a road block with the the excavator you drive on a highway, the second time into a canyon, the third time onto a rollercoaster and so on...

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

In this second Magic School Bus game based on the educational book series from Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen, Ms. Frizzle and her class take a trip inside classmate Arnold's body. This program is based on the book The Magic School Bus Inside the Human Body and the episode The Magic School Bus for Lunch. From Arnold's head to his toe, the group travels through every system, including the Upper and Lower Digestive System, the Circulatory System, the Respiratory System, Liver, Nervous System and the skin. Only when all the areas and 12 body parts have been visited can the class leave Arnold's body through one of three natural exits. In the classroom, selecting the skeleton brings up a game of reassembling its bones; clicking on the science projects on the other side of the room trigger animations. Once the bus is selected, the journey begins as the miniaturized vehicle zooms into Arnold's mouth. The player navigates through his body by clicking the steering wheel and selecting directional signs from the bus windshield; each place will lead to at least one other, and all lead to the nervous system from where any section can be visited. On the lower left sits Liz, the class mascot, who can be clicked for help. Clicking the rear view mirror takes the player to the back of the bus, where he can choose Tim's knapsack to access a drawing program, or Ralphie's handheld to play a game related to the current body part. As the player journeys through the body the places he has visited are recorded on a map in the glove box as well as stamped in a travel log, so he can see what has been missed. Unlike later Magic School Bus games, the player is unable to exit the bus, all the action takes place inside and in the classroom.

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

In this first game in the series, Ms. Frizzle is lost as soon as the bus flies off into space and the goal of the game is to locate her using the clues she provides. This is essentially a computer version of the book The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System and the cartoon episode "The Magic School Bus Lost in Space,". The Friz's hiding place varies throughout the game. As would become the standard for the remainder of the games in the original software series, the main screen consists of the bus's dashboard, where the user can "drive" the bus to any of the nine planets or Earth's moon. Since Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune lack solid surfaces, the bus instead lands on one of their moons (Io for Jupiter, Mimas for Saturn, Miranda for Uranus and Triton for Neptune.) Once on a planet, the user can exit the bus, where a strange satellite called the "whatsit" must be clicked on to bring up an arcade-styled game in which the user, controlling one of the students, must collect one of Ms. Frizzle's tokens (giant coins with Ms. Frizzle's face on them) which provide the user with a clue as to the Friz's whereabouts and activate the "Friz-finder." There are only three clues available, but tokens will still need to be collected to activate the "Friz-finder" after all the clues have been exhausted. Clicking on the "Friz-finder" will determine whether Ms. Frizzle is anywhere on the current planet. If she is, then the game is completed, but if she is not then the user will have to collect another token to activate the "Friz-finder" to try again. There are also a bunch of different surprises, including a singing barbershop group of rocks called "the Cratertots".

Microsoft Creative Writer Microsoft Corporation [top]

Creative Writer is a word processor released by Microsoft Kids in 1993. Using this program, which is specifically targeted at children, it is possible to create documents such as letters, posters, flyers and stories complete with different fonts, Clip art, WordArt and effects. The interface and environment is especially targeted towards children and is set in Imaginopolis with the main helper being a character known as McZee. A sequel, Creative Writer 2, was released in 1996 with McZee not making an appearance but earlier does appear in Microsoft 3D Movie Maker. The program took place in the fictional place of Imaginopolis and had several levels of a building each with a different topic (e.g. one for plain writing, one for story templates, one for poster templates). The design of the program was very similar to that of its sister program Fine Artist. The program runs full screen and creates an all inclusive environment. The interface was probably inspired by an earlier product called Microsoft Bob. Creative Writer featured many of the features found on Microsoft's Word for Windows product, including the WordArt feature used to create titles and headlines and the ability to add clip art. Creative Writer also used sounds heavily where each tool would make a different noise. Examples of this include a vacuum cleaner suction to delete and an explosion to denote deleting everything from a page. In 1997, a version 2.0 was released with an updated interface and the program was now designed for Windows 95. Microsoft's Paint It!, from their Plus for Kids pack, was included at no additional charge with Creative Writer 2. Although it was a separate program, it could be used to edit any images double-clicked in a word processing document. Support for creating and publishing websites was also included through Microsoft's Web Publishing Wizard. Support for opening and saving in Rich Text Format (.rtf) files and text files (.txt). Nearly a dozen of themes based on nature and sports are included to customize the program's look and feel. Removed were: maginopolis, support for Microsoft Word (.doc) files, and the McZee character, although he makes a cameo appearance as a font and in the clip art gallery.

Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear's Activity Pack Humongous Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This contains 15 different games and activities for kids 3-8. It's a compilation of Putt-Putt's Fun Pack and Fatty Bear's Fun Pack, along with four new games. Most of the games are played against either Putt-Putt or Fatty Bear. Some games are traditional, such as Tic-Tac-Toe, Checkers, Reversi, or the card game Go Fish. Others are renamed versions of popular games. "Remember!" is basically Concentration, a memory game. "The Cheese King" is Hangman, while the "On-Ramps & Off Ramps" is the board game chutes & ladders. "Word Hunt!" is the device in puzzle books where you find words in letter grids. In "Guess It!", you use logic to figure out which fruits are used and which locations they've been placed in. "Lines & Boxes" is another logic game, making boxes by drawing lines between a grid of dots. Finally, Tangrams is a spatial recognition game, fitting pieces into different shapes. Most of these games have multiple difficulty levels. Although designed for children 3-8, many of the games should give even parents the occasional run-for-the-money at the Hardest level. Finally, there are four games just for fun: In "Circus Stormin'" - a side-scrolling arcade game - you control Putt-Putt up and down, moving him around obstacles and having him pick up balloons. There's also a sliding tiles (logic puzzle) game with slightly varying images, and a Pachinko pinball where you can create your own 'field' of 6x11 bumpers and the balls make amusing sounds when they hit. There's also a 35-page in-game coloring coloring book with 16 mixable palette slots.

SpaceKids Everyware / MicroProse [top]

The Grandpa of Zeet and Deedle is a great explorer, but he hasn't returned to the Moon from his latest destination: the Earth! His grand-children take it upon themselves to follow his trail and rescue him from whatever terrestrial menace has detained him, after interacting with an extensive array of whimsical, surreal characters. SpaceKids is a good look at what interactive movies looked like just before the CD-ROM format became the new standard for extensive multimedia-rich content storage -- instead of meg-heavy digitized actors we get byte-thrifty pre-rendered sprites in front of 3D backdrops, twirling around the screen and stretching or skewing in realtime with every possible bump or jostle. To please the kids, pretty much everything in this game that isn't made of candy has got a human face with big, pleading eyes on it somewhere. Gameplay loosely follows the model set by Dragon's Lair: non-interactive animated segments (sometimes prolonged ones) are punctuated by episodes of player input, consisting of moving the actor of the moment -- sometimes our protagonists, sometimes their opponent -- in the right direction at the right moment to pass some timed obstacle or choose a fork in the plot. Unlike Dragon's Lair, death does not lurk around every corner; failing to successfully traverse the obstacle (or, uh, interact vaguely with the new strange situation in the arbitrarily appropriate fashion) generally yields only another opportunity to do so.

Super Solvers: Treasure Galaxy! The Learning Company [top]

Treasure Galaxy! is an educational computer game published by The Learning Company in 1994 for both Windows and Macintosh PCs. It is aimed at children ages 5 to 9 and is intended to teach children reading, basic math, and logic skills. Treasure Galaxy is part of the Super Solvers series. After being removed from Treasure Cove, the Master of Mischief heads off to Crystal City in deep space. After turning the harmless asteroids into menacing Disasteroids, the Master of Mischief attacks Crystal City and shatters its crystals. The Super Solvers are summoned to recover the crystal shards and save Crystal City from the Master of Mischief. The goal of Treasure Galaxy! is to recover all of the crystals and return them to the queen in her palace. To gather crystals, the player must first capture animated fireballs called "sunbeams" and answer their riddles. If answered correctly, a sunbeam will help the player decode a cipher that must be cracked in order to access the crystals hidden in the satellites. Each stage will have a different cipher that applies to all the satellites in that particular stage. There are three separate stages, or orbits, of play, and the player may not move on to the next stage until he has learned the 4-digit passcode. The passcode can be obtained by completing various challenges posed by aliens that can be found in each stage. The challenges pertain to real-world scenarios such as using a calendar to find a certain date, measuring with a ruler, and measuring with a scale. Difficulty of each separate category of puzzle changes according to how well the player does with that type of puzzle.

Tuneland 7th Level [top]

This is a musical cartoon adventure designed for children of all ages. As the player, you have been invited to join Little Howie (voice played by Howie Mandel) as a guest at Old MacDonald's farm. There are a total of eight areas to explore, and each area is filled with objects and characters for you to interact with simply by clicking the mouse cursor on them. Little Howie is hiding somewhere in every place you visit, so it is a good idea to try to interact with as many things as possible to try to find him. Practically everything in each scene responds with some kind of animation, sound effect, or if you are lucky, song! Tuneland contains many elements which make it enjoyable. The songs are one of the best features in the game. There are no eight bit sampled tunes here. All the songs are CD quality so you get to hear all the instruments and singing in their clearest form. Are the songs worth listening to at all? The answer to this question is a definite yes! 7th Level has done a fine job assembling a group of talented musicians and singers. I found myself tapping my feet to a lot of the songs. All the music in Tuneland is based on traditional children songs. There are over forty different songs in the game! In addition to the game, Tuneland comes with jukebox software that will allow you to play all the music from the game. This is for those people who don't want to hunt down all the characters and objects in the game that trigger the songs. Tuneland's graphics are also well done. The animation is extremely smooth (especially for a Super VGA product), and the backgrounds are pleasing to the eye. One of the funniest scenes in the game is when the farmer's wife is chasing the mice with the broom. The song "Three Blind Mice" is playing in the background, and all the mice have on cool dark shades as they run around the table. Tuneland also provides several hot keys that when pressed, allow the player to jump to any scene in the game. There is a key for autoplay as well for those who just want to watch and not interact. These features, along with its easy point and click interface makes Tuneland a truly enjoyable gaming experience.

An adult adventure game. In the same vein of other "Hentai" games like 3 Sisters Story or Divi Dead. Desire takes place in the research institute of the same name, located on a remote island. Aparently the researchs being conducted have some sort of unnoficial link with the military and so journalist Albert Macdgul is sent to investigate and see what he can find. At the same time Tina, a young girl, is washed ashore in the island with no recolection of what has happened to her or who she is, and meanwhile the technical manager at Desire Makoto Izumi seems to think something weird is going on with the researchs being conducted. You'll play through 4 chapters which make up the same storyline, but viewed by different characters. In each chapter you'll see the events and situations from different angles and uncover layers and layers of the main plotline which twists and bends in standard C's Ware fashion (and in the way you'll hook up with all of Desire's female population!). The game is played via a standard text interface were you select your actions and interact with other characters and places. Obviously, being a hentai game, there are many depictions of hardcore sexual situations so don't say you weren't warned.

Dragon Knight 4 [J] Elf Co., Ltd. [top]

This is a sequel to Knights of Xentar (known as Dragon Knight 3 when originally released in Japan). Years have passed after Takeru (a.k.a. Desmond, the hero of the previous Dragon Knight games) defeated the ultimate evil. He married his sweetheart Luna, and they had a son named Kakeru. This fifteen-year-old boy has one weakness: he likes naked female elves. But soon he learns that the evil wizard Lushifon wants to turn all people into stones and control the whole world while nobody is able to stop him. Together with the mysterious swordsman Eto and many other heroes, Kakeru must perform his ultimate quest and defeat Lushifon and his minions. In this tactical role-playing game the player controls nine units in battles, assigned according to the class of the character who leads the unit. The opponents also form similar groups, and are also divided into classes. Each class has its own range, strengths, and weaknesses. There are many characters the players can recruit to the party, and they belong to different classes (barbarians, archers, magicians, etc.). It was also adapted into illustrated novels and an anime miniseries. The adult content (scenes which include nudity) was from the console releases. In 2007, a remake was done with 3D graphics.

Interactive Girls Club Interactive Girls Club [top]

This is a compilation of four adult games. Three are point-and-click adventures: Vida, You attempt to meet and seduce a young redheaded woman. The graphics are (for the most part) digitized still pictures of an actual model; while sexual in nature, they never rise above the level of softcore. The gameplay is incredibly simplistic, and it can be very hard to make a wrong move- typically, if you make an error, the game just gives a brief quip regarding why a move didn't work, and then returns you to the exact same point to try again. Teresa: House Guest (played by British pornographic actress Teresa May). Visiting office type party, you met a beautiful girl from overseas. It's her birthday tomorrow, but she has no place to sleep to this time. Being a gentleman, you invite her to your apartment. You choose answers in dialogs and interact with items on the screen to untwist the plot. The game is made for adults, and it includes many explicit nude scenes with female protagonist. Jo Guest in the Milk Round features British model: Joanne Guest. The player, as a sudden substitute for his milkman friend, has to deliver milk in the local neighborhood. At one of the houses he is invited inside by a young woman. As the game is progressing the hostess reveals more and more about herself, until a "victorious" sex-scene happens. Adult Film Cameraman puts its operator in the position of the cameraman of an adult film. What this amounts to is viewing one of three softcore pornographic colour still images through a small (viewfinder) window, panning across the image with mouse movements and zooming in or out with the buttons. The player can press R to record so that later on, the game can reproduce the particular combination of camera moves (or: their "adult film") for the enjoyment of the viewer.

NeuroDancer: Journey Into The Neuronet! Electric Dreams Inc. / PIXIS Interactive, Inc. [top]

Your goal is to earn enough virtual credits to call "NeuroDancers" (virtual exotic dancers) on the phone and have them dance for you using a HoloTube. The main screen, your control center, is divided into three main areas including the HoloTube, TFUI Monitor and VidFone. Each activity costs a certain number of credits: dancing (100), strip mode (300), remove an article of clothing (100 each piece), and TFUI (Touch and Feel User Interface) (500). The TFUI is activated when you have enough credits and allows you to click on areas of the body you wish to "touch." Controls include an "Orb" navigation button which is used for getting around (turning left, right or forward movement) in the "Electrical Ducts' of the NeuroNET. An Orb action button launches or recalls your Orb, which can be inoperative if too close to a junction box where you receive phone credits. The VidFone is used to view incoming video mail, as well as the dancers, and communicate with the outside world. Different phones that you hookup with, though, have varying fuse times. If your time runs out before you collect your credits, you'll have to contend with the NetPolice. Phone credits are used to recall your Orb and initiate the various NeuroDancer activities. It features Quicktime 3D animation and live motion video and is intended for mature audiences 18 years or older.

Aethra Chronicles: Volume One - Celystra's Bane, The [top]

The small kingdom of Celystra was prosperous under it's old king, "Korros the Wise". The prince, Lythare has ascended to the throne and his wife given birth to a child on his coronation day. However two days later this newborn infant disappeared, presumed kidnapped. Lythare blames the kingdom's Champion Knight-Paladin, as well as several members of the court for failing to protect the child, and imprisons them in the dungeon. The Champion's son, knowing that his father must not have deserved imprisonment sets out on a quest to find the baby with his two companions. However not much is known of the fate of the child, so perhaps other quests and objectives will need to be accomplished first. The Aethra Chronicles: Volume One: Celystra's Bane is a shareware medieval role-playing game in the tradition of SSI's Dungeons & Dragons licensed Gold Box RPGs. Taking it's inspiration from that, the game uses a similar system based on die rolls against stats/skill combinations. Players begin by creating three characters, choosing their class and stats in various stats such as Strength, Agility, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom, Presence, Memory, and Reason. The player then assigns skill proficiencies in a variety of abilities dependent on those stats (such as Spell Lists, Pick Lock, Woods Lore, etc.). Combat between characters and monsters is turn-based and the player can recruit an additional three characters for a total of six. As with most shareware games, the first episode (The Book of Prophecy) can be freely distributed, while the other two (Gems of Power and Demon's Might) available only to registered users.

Alien Logic: SkyRealms Of Jorune Ceridus Software, Inc. / Strategic Simulations, Inc. [top]

Enter a unique world of role-playing that is fully developed and thoroughly convincing. Based on the highly acclaimed, ground-breaking Skyrealms of Jorune game system, Alien Logic propels you 3500 years into the future exploring a vast alien universe. A real-time simulation interface packs a variety of interaction modes. And with the stunning realism of leading-edge super-VGA graphics and CD quality sounds, you will leave your world behind. You must discover the secrets of the Warpworld to defeat the evil Red Shantha and rescue your fellow villagers. Despite it being based on a good paper & pencil RPG, the game is more akin to an action/adventure game than traditional RPG due to its lack of character stats and focus on puzzles and conversation with NPCs, and combat relies more on reflexes than planning. Still, the intriguing alien world and neat spells make up for its quirks. Just be prepared for some serious bugs, some repetitive combats, and a lot of time spent on travelling.

Astonishia Story [K] Sonnori Co., Ltd. / Softry Game Production [top]

A hundred years ago Brimhil, the beautiful queen of elves, gave up her youth in order to revive the Life Tree which sustained her race. Years have passed, and humans began to oppress elves. A half-elf named Francis De La Cross tries to save Brimhil from dying, and won't stop at anything to achieve that goal. The young vice-commander of the Palmira 5th infantry, Lloyd von Roiental, escorts the transport of a powerful staff known as the Wand of Kinan. Francis organizes an ambush, and as a result, Lloyd's companions are killed and the staff taken away from him. Lloyd must find a way to recover the staff and prevent further bloodshed. This is a Korean-made role-playing game. The game's structure and basic system are of the traditional Japanese kind and involve party management, overworld exploration, linear progression, and automatic character growth. Enemies are visibly roaming hostile areas and can be avoided. A contact with an enemy initiates a turn-based battle that contains tactical elements: the player can navigate characters on the screen and attack only if the enemy is within their weapons' range.

Chaos Engine, The / Soldiers Of Fortune Bitmap Brothers, The / Renegade Software [top]

Sixteen levels (in four groups of four) await you in this long-developed Bitmap Brothers title. The basic gameplay is similar to Gauntlet, but in an open air setting, with bridges across rivers and such in the maps. The visuals are in the 'metallic and blue' style the Bitmaps appeared to favor. There were 6 characters available in the game, each with different strengths and weaknesses, and different starting prices. In 2-player mode you each chose a character and played co-operatively, but in one-player games you also choose a character for the computer to control, with its Artificial Intelligence allowing it to open doors, pick up power-ups and take on baddies away from the ones occupying your character. One of the very best RPGs ever produced, and definitely the BEST historical RPG ever, Darklands was unfortunately plagued with a slew of bugs when it was first released, many of which could critically damage system files. The newest version (7.0) corrects most of these bugs and makes the game what it was supposed to be. So what makes Darklands so special? For one thing, it is arguably the most accurate historical RPG ever created-- almost every facet of genuine medieval Germany is depicted in the game, from the huge map with over 90 cities, calendar system and currency... down to different weapon and armor types and their corresponding weights and effectiveness. Mundane spellcasting in conventional RPGs is here replaced with an excellent (and, of course, authentic) alchemy interface which lets you create just about any potion you want with dozens of ingredients. Different potions require different levels of expertise - the most difficult ones may require a prayer to the applicable saint to make their manufacture feasible.You can also pray to the gods to request divine aid in sticky situations. Darklands' character generation is one of the best I have seen in an RPG. After choosing your name and gender, you then go on to select your hereditary, which effects your stats and skills. You then pick an occupation which adds 5 years to your age and increases your skills depending on the occupation chosen. You can keep choosing more careers, but your character will start to suffer from age. This trade-off between experience and strength strikes a great balance that requires strategic planning. The goal of your adventures is simply to become famous. The game is very non-linear: over time, different "quests" will be spawned.

Dark Sun: Wake of the Ravager Strategic Simulations, Inc. / Mindscape, Inc. [top]

This is the sequel to Dark Sun: Shattered Lands. Although it has the same engine and basic gameplay as the original game, the graphics have been improved considerably with larger character sprites, etc. Like Shattered Lands, this game is a departure from the earlier gold box Dungeons and Dragons games and is more akin to Baldur's Gate in that instead of a first person "maze game" focusing on dungeon crawling, you have a third-person top down game with more of a focus on interacting with the characters and environment around you. The game takes place from a top down perspective from which you view the world from above, and you control your character's actions with a mouse-driven icon-based point-and-click interface similar to those used in adventure games. Combat takes place on the same screen/environment as the normal adventuring portion of the game, and is turn based where you issue your commands and then the computer issues its commands. Wake of the Ravager follows from Shattered lands, taking place on the barren burning wasteland planet known as Athas. If you finished the first game you can import your characters into this game. After defeating the Drajian Army in the first game, your characters journey to the recently liberated city of Tyr whose evil Sorcer-King Kalak was recently slain. Although freed from Kalak's Tyranny, Tyr is now defenseless against the ambition of the Dragon (Athas' resident Ultimate Evil). The Dragon sends his powerful undead general the Lord Warrior to Tyr to conquer it and prepare for his coming. Your characters hook up with a rebel underground known as the Veiled Alliance and must oppose the Draxans and the Lord Warrior, all the while they are secretly being observed by the Dragon through his crystal ball thingy (he makes various nasty comments about your progress during the map load screens). You soon learn that the Dragon may be the least of your worries, however, as it becomes apparent that the Lord Warrior has his own hidden agenda and intends to unleash a long dormant monster of immense destructive power upon the world.

Ishar 3: The Seven Gates of Infinity Silmarils [top]

After Zubaran, the Lord of Ishar, has defeated the evil Shandar, peace has returned to the land. Unfortunately, it didn't last for long, since Shandar found a way to retain his spirit, which is looking for a body to possess. Using time manipulation, Shandar is trying to find the dragon of Sith, last survivor of the Great Black Dragons, in order to control his body and execute its immense power for evil purposes. Zubaran has to find companions, use the Portals of Time, explore the land, and get to the Black Dragon before Shandar does. In the third installment of Ishar series the player can control Zubaran or import characters both from Ishar or Ishar 2. The gameplay is very similar to that of the second game. The player recruits companions and navigates the party through 3D environments viewed from first-person perspective. Combat is action-based, like in the two predecessors. A slight graphical change is the usage of digitized photos as character portraits. Each period, like the islands of Ishar 2, has its own climate and type of landscape. This is the best of the series, combining the mundane kill-the-bad-guys-in-Ishar plot with time travel elements.

Jagged Alliance is a tactical role-playing game and the first game in the Jagged Alliance series, and was followed by Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games (1995) and Jagged Alliance 2 (1999). Jagged Alliance takes place on the fictional south Atlantic island of Metavira, a former nuclear testing site. The nuclear tests altered some trees on the island, and several years later it was discovered by a scientist, Brenda Richards, that those trees, known as Fallow trees, produce unique sap that prove to be a medical marvel. However, Brenda also discovered that the trees could not reproduce. Her assistant, Lucas Santino, realized how profitable this sap would be and managed to convince Jack Richards, the leader of the scientific mission, that it would be beneficial to have two independent science teams, and consequently established a new base on the other side of the island. He immediately began to recruit new people and gradually took over the island by force. When the game begins, the player is contacted by Jack Richards and is invited to the island. There, Brenda and her father request that the player hires mercenaries through the Association of International Mercenaries (abbreviated in-game as 'A.I.M.') to reclaim the island from Santino’s forces sector by sector. The CD-ROM version features speech.

Nahlakh Tom Proudfoot Games [top]

Nahlakh is a shareware game written as RPG adventure with an emphasis on intricate tactical combat, and extensive world exploration. Control a team of 8 characters in a quest to find and destroy the demons of Omalin. The game manual boasts over 200 hours solving time, 100 spells, 300 different monsters, and a system for generating potentially millions of items by combining them with various enchantments and materials. In the author's own words: "It's like a war game with a plot and character development. There are no "experience points" in Nahlakh. skills are learned by doing, not mystically improving out of thin air." The game begins with a fairly involved process of setting up your party of 8 characters. For each character 50 points are given to distribute among the main attributes of strength, intelligence, dexterity, and health. Additionally, picking an icon that represents the character, this selection will affect the skills chosen; essentially the icons are character classes. Next a number of skills are randomly selected with varying levels of accomplishment described humorously with adjectives such as "lousy", "feeble", "wretched". With your party created the game begins, and the party is transported to the world map where a group of enemies waits close by; to the north lies a town called Nedly. The world map will remind one of the early Ultima series with the player character represented by an non-animated icon. The battle system is similar to that found within Pool of Radiance (1989); it is turn-based, each character has a limited number of steps that it takes, and then an adjacent enemy icon is targeted for attack. The game is well documented, and pressing F1 at anytime will bring up context-sensitive help. Since the game is heavily driven by keyboard commands this is an important feature.

Lord Dhelt of Elturel was attacked in his own castle. The mysterious assassin stole the Hole Symbol of Helm, a precious amulet with magical powers. Lord Dhelt asks you to bring the amulet back. But when you kill the assassin and retrieve the amulet, you are suddenly teleported into an unknown area. The way back is blocked by poisonous mist, and there is nothing you can do but explore the hostile surroundings and to solve the mystery of the amulet. This is a party-based RPG that utilizes AD&D rules. In the beginning you have a party of two people, using either pre-determined characters, or creating your own ones, picking from traditional AD&D races (human, elf, dwarf, etc.) and classes (fighter, cleric, etc.). Some characters will join your party during the course of the game, allowing maximum of four characters. Combat is done in real time. The 3D environment allows you to move smoothly through the game world, either with arrow keys, or by simply moving the mouse. Unlike the disk version, a CD-Rom version features full speech.

Realms of Arkania II: Star Trail Attic Entertainment Software GmbH / Sir-tech Software, Inc., U.S. Gold [top]

Star Trail is the second game of the RPG series, and voted by many fans as the best of them all. You start the game in a temple in Kvirasim dedicated to the goddess Peraine. Here you create the 6 heroes you play in the game. You can either choose to let the computer make your characters, load the sample characters or create your own. There is a total of 12 different classes you may play. Each one with its own different style and magic ability. This bit of the game can be difficult for new players, who might want to let the computer take care of the birth of the heroes. When you are done in the temple, the game begins! Immediately you will come in contact with two persons, who will tell you their tale and send you out on a hunt to find an ancient artefact: The Salamander Stone. From this point it is up to you. The game is filled with mini-quest for you to complete, and a vast map to explore. So the chance for you to get bored with this game is minimal. There is always something new to discover, even for advanced players. The music in the game is excellent, and improves the gameplay by a great deal. Also the graphics are great for the time. It’s not 3D, but in my humble opinion it’s the second best. Star Trail is an extremely difficult game. If you do not listen to warnings from people you meet, or travel too deep into orc-infested territory… You will either die, get captured or find a point of no return. The game rely a great deal on its manual, and playing the game without it will greatly increase the difficulty… but it’s not impossible. A separate speech pack for the floppy version adds several megabytes of digitized speech to the game, including dialogue for animated sequences and magic incantations during gameplay. The CD-ROM release includes the speech already.

Towers: Lord Baniff's Deceit JV Enterprises [top]

On their way to help in the battle against Sargon, a crew of adventurers each skilled in their own way encounter a storm that rips a hole in their ship. Safely reaching Lamini, or Land of Towers, the friendly people of the land help repair the damaged ship. As the crew members are looking for a job, they meet the Mayor of the town who is in need of messengers. He tells the adventurers that Lord Baniff has not been heard from in weeks, and that he needs them to seek him out in his Tower and bring word of his condition.

Ultima VIII: Pagan ORIGIN Systems, Inc. [top]


Ultima VIII: Pagan begins where Ultima VII: Part Two - Serpent Isle ended. The Guardian banishes the Avatar to the land of Pagan, a world under his control. Stranded in this unknown land, without his companions to help him, the Avatar's goal is to find a way back to Britannia. He has to confront four Titans in this world who are embodiments of the four elements, as well as master different styles of magic and fight many opponents on his way. The gameplay is significantly more action-oriented in this installment than in the previous Ultima games. The Avatar is able to jump and climb, and some puzzles are based on these abilities, adding platform-style elements to the game. There are no companions to help him in battles; combat is action-based and relies on the player's dexterity. The game also abandons the leveling system of the previous entries, utilizing instead a training-based approach, similar to the one implemented in Quest for Glory games: the character's parameters are increased by continuously using correspondent actions (e.g. the Avatar's strength gradually increases as he swings his weapon). Magic occupies an important place in the game, also departing from the style of the preceding games. The player still needs to gather reagents for spells; however, the exact preparation and casting of the spell differs depending on the elemental school it belongs to. There are four different magic schools in the game, and mastering their spells bears plot-related importance as well. Like in the two previous Ultima installments, the game features physical interactivity with the environment: the player is able to take, drop, and move most objects from place to place. As opposed to the topic-based dialogue style of the earlier games in the series, Pagan uses conversations with selectable responses. It also reduces NPC interaction, focusing more on exploration of a hostile world and combat. A speech pack was released separately, which added voices to some of the major game characters. It is included in the CD-ROM edition of the game. See also: #Ultima Collection

Death By Dark Shadows William R. Fisher III Studios [top]

This is a platformer made by the same guy who made the Last Half Of Darkness series but this is similar in style to the Prince of Persia series. The same basic game concept ideas are used - Fight the voodoo curse and the bad guys at the same time, all while avoiding deadly traps. The creator of the game sold the game (with 7 levels) as a self-publishing work in the city of San Diego in 1995 for a short period of time. Only a few copies were sold. When later creating a CD with his collected works, he only burned a half-working 5-level beta to this CD. The full version became lost afterwards while this beta was spread around the world. So only a few people around San Diego might possess the actual full 7-level version.

Young Simba just can't wait to be king. His father is the current King of the Savannah and the young prince is able to frolic the lands at will; jumping on and around other subjects of this animal kingdom.

The game features no in-game save function, and it needs to be replayed from the beginning every time.

Earthworm Jim Shiny Entertainment, Inc. / Activision, Inc. / Interplay [top]

This is a run and gun platform video game starring an earthworm named Jim in a robotic suit who battles evil. Upon its release it was praised for its detailed animation, polished gameplay and wacky humor. The game was so successful that it inspired a whole range of toys, as well as its own TV cartoon series. What makes Earthworm Jim games a lot of fun is the excellent characterization of the hero. Like The Simpsons, Earthworm Jim (who was a lowly earthworm until he was one day accidentally given superhero powers) deftly walks the line between slapstick humor and social commentary-you could even call it subversive. The gameplay is very strange, to say the least. Launching cows, swinging on hooks with your head, and other bizarre twists add to the insanity. You control Jim at all times of the game. In the level sections, you can run around, use your gun, swing on hooks, and get powerups for the blaster Jim starts with. The in-between levels, called Andy Asteroids, place Jim in a semi-3D race against the evil Psycrow. If Psycrow wins, Jim must fight him in one-on-one combat in order to progress to the next level. Throughout the game there were many added features, such as mini-bosses whose weaknesses you would need to find through trial and error. Crystal treadmills, underwater pod races, and more strange things also make an appearance. Jim comes equipped with a big red gun, which he can fire in a number of directions, to dispatch any foe that comes his way. Then, there's his body, which can be used to whip monsters out of the way, or can be used to swing across hooks and ravines. Or should the worst come to the worst, he can use his head like a helicopter to guide himself away from a particularly nasty fall. There are the usual power ups to grab, such as plasma, or power ups. Jim's gun does drain energy, and recharges, given half a chance. In 1995, a Special Edition was released with new features including a new CD Audio soundtrack, bigger levels, more secrets, more weapons, more animation, more enemies, more wackiness, AAAAAND...more hamsters, of course! It also had redrawn, 256 colour graphics and an Earthworm Jim desktop theme.

Fatman: The Caped Consumer I/O Product / Black Legend Ltd. [top]

One night, when Roy Fat was home, thugs from the evil Thindicate corporation kidnap Roy's old lady while she watches television, and the only way that Roy is going to get her back is to trade her for the Duplicator, and the complete documentation that came with it. There are seven stages to the game, and there are three levels each in the first stage, only two in the rest. The object of the game is to eat all the food that there is in the level. Once all food is eaten by Roy, a tone will sound, meaning that the gate that leads Roy into the next level will be open. Stopping him from doing this is insects and other wildlife, including rats, birds, bats, and many more. Roy is able to fix this, however, by using a variety of weapons like his foot, his fat tummy, carrots, mushroom bombs, and my personal favorite, his burp. He can also jump in the air and land on his ass to get rid of enemies. If he touches an enemy, he loses one of his lives. If he loses all his lives, the game is over. Once Roy has collected all the food in a stage, he has to face a boss that is usually much bigger than him. Fatman can also pass flags, which lets him continue where he left off if he loses a life. Besides enemies, other hazards need to be looked out for, including spike, spikeballs, water, and fire.

Frankenstein Merit Studios [top]

This is an average cartoon platformer whose obscurity is probably due to the fact that it was released very quietly as a shareware title, and only in Europe. Gameplay is typical platform fare with a few twists, such as an inventory (although limited to only 2 items), and “blood level” which you must keep an eye on (you are Frankenstein, after all, although somehow you look more like Quasimodo from Hunchback of The Notre Dame than anything else). The game suffers from relative lack of monsters and repetitive levels, as well as uninspired attacks and general gameplay. When all is said and done, Frankenstein doesn't pack enough punch to sustain anyone's interest for long, especially when compared with other, more famous cartoon platformers on the market.

Jazz Jackrabbit Epic MegaGames, Inc. [top]

Jazz Jackrabbit was created by Cliff Bleszinski and Arjan Brussee, and inspired by classic console games such as Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, and especially the fast-paced Sonic the Hedgehog. As a result, its console-style vibrant graphics and speedy gameplay made it somewhat novel as a PC game. Three thousand years after the events of Aesop's "The Tortoise and the Hare", the enmity between tortoises and hares continues. Jazz Jackrabbit visits various planets to save Princess Eva Earlong and the rabbits' homeworld, Carrotus, from the megalomaniacal Devan Shell and his army of Turtle Terrorists. The eponymous hero is a bright green rabbit or hare with a red bandana, similar in appearance to (and probably in pastiche or parody of) Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It's similar in gameplay to the Sonic the Hedgehog games, with some differences. The game features six episodes; each episode consists of three worlds, with two levels and one 3D bonus level (reached by finding a special gem hidden in one of two standard levels) per world, a secret level on each episode hidden in a particular planet and finally a boss level. Unlike Sonic, Jazz has a life bar: when enemies shoot or come in contact with him, he loses health that must be replenished by collecting carrots. If his health falls to zero, Jazz turns to ash and the level restarts from the last checkpoint. Also, instead of jumping on enemies(which would only result in Jazz losing health) Jazz must shoot his enemies with a blue gun he always carries. A variety of different bullet types can be found in the game and do varying amounts of damage. Originally, the game was sold on floppy disks; one could purchase the first three episodes, the final three episodes, or all six at once. A special CD-ROM version was later released that contained all six original episodes, three completely new episodes, and the 1994 Christmas edition (retitled Holiday Hare). The three new episodes ("Outta Dis World", "Wild Wabbit", and "Turtle Soup") has Jazz exploring planets with such names as Exoticus, Industrius, Deserto, Stonar, and several others. The episode feature new music, new graphics, more enemies, and new bosses.

Little Witch / Jageun Manyeo Ablex / DS Game Channel [top]

This is a hybrid of a platformer and a role-playing game. The titular character is a little girl who lives with her mother in a quiet town, but ventures into dangerous realms on her quest to become a full-fledged sorceress. Visually and gameplay-wise the game resembles Popful Mail; however, the RPG element is more pronounced and includes experience points awarded for defeating enemies, which results in character growth. The heroine can only fight enemies with various magic spells, which deplete her MP bar. Besides experience, enemies also award her with gold, which can be used in towns to purchase restorative and supporting items. Towns (and sometimes also hostile areas) contain friendly non-player characters that the little witch can talk to. Rather than having a continuous world, the game is divided into areas, which can be accessed from a world map and tackled in a linear fashion. Hostile areas consist of platform systems and tend to be fairly maze-like. Game progress can be saved at any time.

Beside you run from some red-toga wearing "Mad Monks" that eat you (like in the "Beast Master" movie) if they catch you, you have a few things on hand to use: small bombs, big bombs (nothing will reappear when they destroy something), a drill (for stone floors), booby-traps, and a few other things up your sleeve.

Lollypop Brain Bug / Rainbow Arts [top]

Sweet she is and sweets she wants. Young Lolly wakes up and has an incredibly appetite for candy. For chocolate, and for caramel and gingerbread, and for cookies and crisps and marshmallows and lemonade and bubblegum and jelly bears and ice and cream and sugar frosted chocolate bombs. All right, we’ve all had such moments. But Lolly is a doll. Animated by a stroke of lightning, she suddenly has life, a sweet tooth and a quest: Onward to the land where candy grows and the refrigerators never run out! It’s a hostile world for small, innocent and rather hungry little dolls – that’s why you’ve got to help Lolly find her way through eight big levels in this jump’n’run game. After the escape from the toy factory, the way to the promised land leads through places like a ghost town, a snow world and even Lolly’s own cottony dreams. The way is far from safe: plenty of traps and monsters threaten a doll’s life, but good timing, athletic leaps and an ample supply of lollipops to fling at obtrusive enemies help mastering any challenge. In desperate situations, Lolly can take a snapshot with her pocket camera, which instantly destroys all opponents on the screen. Huge level bosses guard the exit of each world; defeating the mega-monsters requires specific tactics. Fortunately, there is support: chests contain key items (to unlock different parts of each level), power-ups and plenty of sweets, of course. On the downside, the boxes may also yield harmful objects that jumble up Lolly’s controls or even hurt her. Tender dolls of that model can sustain three hits before they break apart. There’s a time limit for each level, so sucking popsicles in a corner won’t do. You cannot save the game, but you get a personal passcode after each level.

Peach the Lobster A-J Games / Recreational Software Designs [top]

Norumbega was a peaceful land. But all is not well in Norumbega as, Fang Duck, the evil ruler of the Dark Quarter region decided to invade the rest of Norumbega. Fang Duck in his haste to fill the land with his duck minions overlooked the coastal home of Peach, our titular hero. Being the spryest land lobster in all of Norumbega, Peach, has been chosen by the leaders of the coastal town to take out Fang Duck and restore peace to the lands. Luckily for you Fang Duck expected no resistance! Peach The Lobster is an arcade platformer where you play the role of Peach. Peach the Lobster can jump around, and use his claw gun to hit enemies or monitors to release items like 1-up Lobsters, health-up shells and bonus points. Peach can also slide, run and duck under platforms and crevices. If your goal is a little higher than that well Peach can also double jump up there. There are four regions that Peach will have to traverse. Grasslands is where the adventure begins. Filled with lush foliage, waterfalls and hills, Grasslands is the main territory in Norumbega. When you arrive in the region of Atland be wary of currents and underwater hazards as this region mysteriously sank under water a thousand years ago. The Norumbegan Caves is where you will find yourself after that. These torch-lit caverns lead up to windswept mountaintops and are the last stop before The Techno-Castle. This wannabe-technologic wonder fort is the Fang Duck's lair and home to his bevy of futuristic minions including laser turrets, and robotic duck henchmen. Of course this all leads up to a final confrontation with the boss duck himself, Fang Duck.

Super Cop [K] Marixon / Softtown [top]

This is a Korean-made platform shooter similar to early Duke Nukem platformers. The player controls a boy who has miraculously turned into a super-cop and must traverse hostile areas to defeat monsters and evil mechanical creatures. The game's visual style is fairly colorful, and many of the enemies are anthropomorphic animals. The player must complete eight platforming stages. A fixed amount of key items (such as floppy disks) must be collected in each stage in order to proceed to the next one. A boss enemy normally holds a number of such items and drops them upon defeat. The protagonist can only use one weapon, a gun with unlimited ammunition, but it can be upgraded twice for laser attack and fire bursts. It is possible to shoot horizontally and upwards, but not downwards or diagonally. Security camera and supply crates can be destroyed; the latter usually contain score-increasing or health-restoring items. Developed by the same staff as Gakgae Gyeokpa, this is a much more straight forward platformer with a strictly linear stage progressing. The basic elements are standard platforming fare, but this game is incredibly inventive. Each stage seems to introduce at least one completely new idea, giving even the better Super Mario games a run for their money in that department. There's a mountain climber hat, slides, shooter sequences, a pencil item that draws sketchy platforms on the screen, and much, much more. The technical side, however, is once again much less to get excited about, but luckily not as catastrophic as in Gakgae Gyeokpa. The scrolling is perfectly smooth this time, more so than in most DOS games, but Zis occasionally gets stuck in the scenery, sprites aren't always deleted properly and there's a whole package of other glitches and even crashes. The game is still playable for the most part, but the overall impression is dragged down by those flaws, nonetheless. All sprites are drawn well and have an unique, raw charm to them. Backgrounds tend to be a bit on the dull side, though. The music's fine, but lacks inspiration and goes mostly unnoticed. Ablex once again proved that they were one of the best creative teams in Korea, despite the repeated lack of fine tuning.

Superfrog Team17 Software Limited [top]

This is a traditional jump & run platformer. You're – surprise – a frog. Your enemies are all animals – like bees, hedgehogs or snails. You have no weapons. The only way to kill the enemies is to jump on them. Every stage has a time limit. In this limit you have to collect a pre-determined number of coins. Each of the six worlds has four stages. Every stage has a password. After all you can type your name into a high score table. The objective of the game is to find and defeat a witch, thus rescuing a princess, whilst achieving smaller objectives throughout the game, such as finding a golden key or escaping from captivity in a circus. There are 24 regular levels, divided into six differently-themed worlds. The goal of each level is to collect a set number of coins, and then reach the exit, which will only open if Superfrog has collected enough coins. Extra factors of gameplay include a timer countdown and a number of health points, both of which can be restored by finding bottles of Lucozade among the levels. Depending on the number of coins and fruit collected, and on how fast the player finishes the level, a number of credits (up to a maximum of 15) are awarded at the end of each level. The player can then choose to either collect the credits for a score or gamble them in a slot machine-style minigame for more bonuses. The most important function of the slot machine minigame is the chance to win a level code, enabling the player to restart the game from the beginning of the next level at a later time.

Time Runners Episodes 1-30 [It] Simulmondo [top]

This is a series of platform adventure games that were released one a month and sold in magazine stands just like comic books. Unlike other similar Simulmondo series, this was the only one not based on a comic book and was also released in different languages (not only Italian). Basically, Max has to explore locations, avoid pits and traps, fight some enemies (after the cavemen of the first episode, I don't remember anything different from Skunks until episode 9) and searching for objects to use or take (press U to see the "hot spots" of each location). There are few of these objects, though, so you'll have to search carefully. Some screens are almost identical to each other, and it's easy to get lost. Probably for this reason, you can see a map by pressing M. Sometimes, the action will change to an adventure-style screen, where you use or take objects. You can see your inventory by pressing I, but you can't combine objects, or decide when to use them - Max does the action automatically if he has the object. So, it's a totally useless screen, even because it's a miracle to have more than two objects at the same time. Calling the tasks of each episodes "puzzles" is too much, considering how few they are too. Sometimes, "hot spots" are activated only when you did some actions, so you have to search for them again. When you fight with a Skunk, you seem to exchange slaps with him, like some old B&W slapstick movies. When I had a gun, I rarely bothered to use it, considering how stupid the enemies are. Sometimes, they even turn around pointlessly, allowing you to whack them. And now, the worst thing, the control system. Using the keyboard, it has some similarities to Prince of Persia and Flashback, but it's often unresponsive. You can perform a running jump before or after you really intended, and then fall in a large pit. When I tried to cross small pits with a standing jump, Max often did and additonal step before, falling miserably. Instead of making a better keyboard control, programmers found a shortcut: mouse control. Right-click on a spot of the screen, and Max will reach it, doing all the jumps automatically. I often tried to resist to this temptation, but I eventually gave up. This makes the games TOO easy, like they were already difficult: once you know what to do (and there's little to do), you can finish every episode in about 25 minutes. All that "empty" exploration is only an excuse to make the things a little longer. They are often unforgiving: step on a certain platform, push the wrong button, and it's game over. Saving often is the only remedy.

Tonko [K] TWIM [top]

This cute Korean platformer was the developer's most successful one. The first entry in the series works like a classical single screen action platformer, only the view is zoomed in so much that the stages actually don't fit on a single screen, anymore. Typical for the genre, though, is the game's simplicity in every aspect: The yellow goblin(?) Tonko has to whack ghosts of various prominent villains on the head with his hammer, such as Dracula or Hitler. And while he's at it, all of their minions, too, all the while listening to remixed public domain music. A stage usually ends when all enemies are defeated, but certain pickup items have also the same effect.

Tony & Friends in Kellogg's Land Rauser Advertainment, Factor 5 / Kellogg's [top]

This promotional platformer resembles very much another classic platformer, being very fun and well-designed. You play as Tony the Tiger, that has to take back the resources that were stolen by King Kroko and his crocodile gang from the peaceful Kellogg's Land. Your tasks involve actions like jumping through the levels, defending from various enemies and getting rid of them (the fights include stomping on them), solving puzzles, collecting coins and other bonus items. Your special capacity implies transforming other characters from the Kellog's franchise, for example Smack, that has other abilities. The three worlds that present the wonderful world populated by the cartoon characters from the covers of Kellogg's cereal boxes are: Corn Country, Rain Forest and Frosty Mountains. Each world has six levels. If you have forgotten about your favourite cereal characters, now it's time to bring back the memories, by playing this game with colorful, vivid, graphics, great sound effects, upbeat music and an easy and smooth gameplay. In short, it's an imaginative and classic time killer.

The dark lord Galuf has ambitions to take over the world, and there's only one thing left that he needs: three magic seals, said to be the most powerful weapons in existence. When he comes to the castle where they are hidden, the princess entrusts them to a fairy to find help. She escapes the castle and finds three young travelers of improbable hair colors: Rare, Medium, and Well. The fairy entrusts each girl with one of the seals, and they set off to defeat Galuf, rescue the princess, and restore peace to the kingdom. Totsugeki! Mix is a cute action platform game. Choosing one of the three girls, each with their own unique weapon, the player must travel through ten different stages fighting Galuf's unreasonably cute army. There are several different special magic powers that can be collected, including a fairy familiar, magic shield, and time slow, and a boss waits at the end of each stage.

Whizz Flair Software Ltd. [top]

Whizz is one of the few 3D platformers to use an isometric viewpoint. This game is about a race between Whizz, a bunny with a hot air balloon, and a rat with a zeppelin. Even though the game doesn't really show the rat often, the first intro cut scene shows that the rat is cheating by shooting Whizz down with his shotgun. Now Whizz must search throughout the land for another hot air balloon. Whizz has a mushroom as a health bar, collects flags and gems for points, and gains an extra life after getting 10,000 points. He fights with a spinning attack which can kill some of the enemies and transform them into mushrooms that can add some health to the mushroom health bar. Unfortunately, to perform such a spinning attack he uses health from the health bar, and the enemies can also drop a blue mushroom instead of a red one. The blue mushrooms are bad for Whizz, since they take health when eaten. On top of that, some of the enemies are even immune to his spinning attack! The attack destroys certain walls if Whizz has collected boxes that enable him to do so. The more boxes he gets, the more walls he can destroy with his spinning attack! You can instantly lose your lives if you don't pay attention when an enemy walks into you. It will keep draining away your health until you either step aside or die. Each level is played out against a time limit, and the paths through the level aren’t always clear-cut. There are four different types of doors, each of which needs a particular icon to pass (the icons represent the door type, such as ice or bricks, rather than hot water or a key, or anything you'd logically expect to clear the path). You can avoid the baddies, which may be the best option, as killing them costs you some energy –this reduces the significance of the points system.

The sequel to Zool sees him take on Mental Block and Krool across 15 levels. The gameplay is similar to the original, but the character can now scale walls, and has some new spinning attack moves. Much was made at the time of the game's release of the fact that you could play as either Zool or his girlfriend Zooz, and the two characters completed each level in slightly different ways. On each level you had to collect a certain amount of the featured fruit, and then find the exit across the multi-directionally-scrolling levels. There are lots of hidden areas to see, including a bonus Breakout game starring Zool's pet 2-headed dog.

Blupimania Epsitec SA [top]

Blupimania is a puzzle game, more than an action game. The idea is that Blupi needs to make his way to a point in the game, and needs to arrange so that he finds a beautiful balloon to go to the next level. It is very much in the spirit of "Lemmings". Obstructing you are a variety of dangers and distractions, including walls, pits, banana peels (which turn Dr. Blupi into the psychotic Mr. Hyde-Blupi, who promptly rushes over and bursts the balloon that he so earnestly sought just moments earlier), evil robots, and doors that require keys. Often Blupi is not alone, several of his twin brothers are walking also in the game, and you should arrange so that everybody can find a balloon! The graphics are excellent VGA level creations. The game is composed of more than 150 puzzles, grouped into 8 categories. In addition, players can make their own puzzles. The game is in 3D isometric, with small nice music to accompany the part, and a range of fun sound effects.

Boppin' Accursed Toys, Inc. / Apogee Software, Ltd. [top]

This is a puzzle game with a difference. A teddy bear has stolen all of the monsters from the arcade games of every universe because he considers them to be evil. You play an arcade character yourself, and you must not only defeat said teddy bear, but also his wife and his child (who has an incurable urge to maim and\or kill anyone who gets in his way) while freeing the monsters. This is done by creating patterns of blocks by throwing matching blocks at them. Theoretically, you don't actually have to free any monsters, but you do have to clear all of the blocks on the level to continue, and often there is a trick to doing so, such as some of the blocks being a part of the environment, or set up as a trap. You can often spend ten minutes on a level before realising this, and the same trick is almost never used twice, making many of the levels quite difficult, but also keeping the game, which is 160 levels long, from getting old, but not entirely successfully. Throwing blocks can get tiring after 20 levels or so. The game also features a level editor that is relatively easy to use, but the sheer number of buttons and modes can make it seem a little daunting at first. The graphics are equivalent to your average side-scrolling puzzle game, and the art style is very cartoony, which makes it quite a surprise when you lose and your character pulls out a gun and shoots himself. This can be censored, of course, but it ruins the unusual and occasionally disturbing atmosphere of the game (set up, I might add, by the Accursed Toys logo, which is a stabbed and bleeding teddy bear). There are a huge number of different art styles between levels, from a weird natural\technological fusion, to temple-ish levels, to levels that are scribbled on refill paper in blue ink, and this gives the game quite a disjointed feeling. The sound is of a reasonable quality, although a little sparse, and the music is cheerful and suits the art style of the game. Overall, Boppin is a good game. Good, but nothing other than the art and story of the game really puts it above any other puzzle games, and many other puzzle games are both more challenging and more engaging. It can often be frustratingly hard and frustratingly easy, but also deceptively frustrating, and the developers have gone a long way to give the player a smart way to solve many of the puzzles. In 2005, the authors recompiled the game as freeware for Windows, adding the sounds of the version for Commodore Amiga.

Hugo ITE Media ApS (Interactive Television Entertainment) / NBG EDV Handels- und Verlags GmbH [top]

The evil witch Hexana kidnapped Hugo's family and he has to rescue them. This game contains five ported levels from the popular TV show: Level 1/1: Hugo is driving on a draisine and has to dodge oncoming trains and dead ends by changing the tracks. On the right side of the screen is a map of the route. Level 1/2: Hugo has to cross a forest and has to dodge several obstacles by jumping over them. Level 2/1: Hugo is climbing a mountain and has to dodge oncoming stones by jumping over them. Level 2/2: Hugo is flying a airplane and has to dodge oncoming balloons. Level 3: You have to choose between three ropes. If you choose the right one your points get doubled. In every playthrough you have to beat three levels which you choose beforehand. You have to select either 1/1 or 1/2 and either 2/1 or 2/2. Because the levels were created for a TV show where you had to control Hugo with your phone buttons, the controls are simple: Depending on the level there are just two or three buttons to press at the right time. The levels contained in Hugo were originally released as Hugo - Pa Nye Eventyr and Hugo - Pa Nye Eventyr II on the Amiga. A CD version was later released in 1996 with the same content.

Incredible Machine 2, The Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

This game involves puzzle solving, while creating wacky machines. Each level of the game contains a machine designed to do a specific task. The only problem is, there are parts missing, and it is your job to figure out where to put what in order to get the machine to work. The game features many wacky machine parts, including cats, super balls, lava lamps, flashlights, can openers, monkies on tredmills, and many more wacky parts to get your machine working. The game also comes with an editor to let you design your own unique machines from scratch. These can either be for fun, or you can set it so that the person playing has to fill in the missing parts, just like the campaign.

Kid Vid Grid Jasmine Multimedia Publishing [top]

This expands the moving-puzzle-game concept to the younger set, substituting cartoons starring the likes of Huckleberry Hound and Snagglepuss for rock music videos in the original game. The gameplay remains the same. 10 full-length Hanna-Barbera cartoons are cut up into puzzle pieces (the number varies by skill level selected) and jumbled in a number of different ways (some pieces are upside down for instance). Gamers reassemble the puzzle while the cartoon plays, racing both the clock and the times of any other gamers (up to 10 can play). It's not necessarily as simple as it sounds - one wicked twist alters the number of squares as the cartoon unspools - so even though the number of cartoons is relatively small, the potential number of distinct games to be created from them isn't.

Lemmings Chronicles, The / All New World of Lemmings DMA Design Limited / Psygnosis Limited [top]

This third game in the popular Lemmings puzzle game series was the last Lemmings game developed by DMA Design. The gameplay remained similar to the original games, requiring the player to lead all the lemmings to their exit by giving them the appropriate "skills". However, as the game's title suggests, both the gameplay as well as the graphics were "all new". Fans disagree on whether or not this made it a better game, but no more lemmings games were made in the same style. The storyline continues where Lemmings 2 left off. Of the twelve tribes that escaped from Lemming Island, the adventures of three tribes are followed in this game; the Shadow tribe, the Classic tribe and the Egyptian tribe. Each tribe leaves the flying Ark they escaped on, and finds their own island to explore. Unlike all previous Lemmings games, it represented the lemmings with larger graphics, and now introduced enemies and an alternative way of giving lemmings skills. The game had a total of 90 levels, 30 for each tribe. Like in the previous game, the lemmings saved in one level are the ones left for the next one. The gameplay has the following new features: There are five skills that are available in each level, while others can be given when a lemming picks up an item. The five permanently available skills are: Walk/Turn - The lemming will turn around, or stop working and start to walk again; Blocker - For the remainder of the level or until commanded otherwise, the lemming will hold his position and act as a wall; Jump - The lemming will make a short jump; Use item - The lemming will start to use the item he picked up; Drop item - The lemming will drop the item he has; Other items/skills (for digging, building, climbing, etc.) are available as little blocks that a lemming will pick up when he finds it. Only this lemming can be told to use this item. Builders and diggers now have the option of working in multiple directions, as can be specified by the player. The player also has the ability to pick out a selected lemming who will then follow the commands given, without having to be clicked on every time. The following monsters can be found in levels: Potato Beast - Will walk around and kill any lemming it comes across; Psycho Buzzard - Will fly down on a lemming and kill it; Lemme Fatale - Will make a nearby lemming lovestruck and have him commit suicide; Mole - More or less friendly, will start digging diagonal tunnels; A new "replay" mode allows a player to automatically redo everything done before in a level, with the option to continue playing at any given point. Practice levels are available including every available item to experiment with.

Literati MVP Software [top]

This is a version of a 1990 DOS shareware game that was converted and upgraded with more features for Windows in 1994. In 2000, it became a popular part of the Yahoo Games web portal playable in a JAVA format in a web browser. Similar to Scrabble, the gameplay involves placing letters from 7 tiles per player on a board and trying to accumulate the highest score possible. Letters are distributed to players randomly and are worth between 1 and 5 points while blank tiles (one which is always given in first 7 tiles of the game) have no point value but can be made into any letter. The first word must be placed horizontally or vertically with one tile on the center square. Subsequent words must use one letter of an existing word or be placed next to one so that any touching letters form valid words also. Knowing the valid 2-letter words is very helpful in doing this. Placing tiles on letter and word multiplier squares will increase your score and if you place all 7 tiles on the board at once, a 35-point bonus is given. A player can also choose to pass and select any of the letters in their pile to trade for new ones but loses their turn. A player first creates a table and can change its options for number of players, put a time limit and whether it is unrated or rated (the outcome will affect a person's overall rating). A challenge mode can also be set so that any word placed on the board can be challenged as to its validity by an opponent. If it is invalid the word is removed and the player who put it down loses their turn or else the challenger loses their next turn if the word is indeed valid. Other players choose to Join a table and press Start to begin a game. When all tiles in the game are distributed and one player places all their remaining ones on the board or no-one can play any more tiles then the game is over. The sum of the letter values in each player's hand is subtracted from their score. If a player has no letters remaining, the sum of all of the letter values in the other players' hands are added to their score. The person with the highest score wins.

PeterBox / Soko-Sex True Emotions Software [top]

This game was originally created by a Spanish shareware house. They released it by two names: Peter Box and Soko Sex. The concept is derived from the Japanese puzzle game "Sokoban". Soko-Sex adds pictures of young naked models, whose parts are shown to you after completing the levels. Original idea of game is not changed but added strip motivation. First level is the same, others levels are not very changed from original ones but some of them are new. Soko-Ban players just has to remember how to put this box in that place. The source code of the DOS Peterbox is probably lost, and the game itself is very rare too, but in 2005, Joel Yliluoma recreated it in Javascript.

Radio Active Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Corporation [top]

This bills itself as The Music Trivia Game Show. Up to four players can compete and each chooses from a set of 16 avatars to represent them. The avatars are all digitized actors and fall into a number of stereotypes such as the fitness instructor, the rebel, the cheerleader, the pirate, the surfer dude, the cover girl, the cowboy, and the nerd. The players take turns answering trivia questions covering music from 1961 to 1985. A player spins the wheel to select a time span of 4-5 years in which the question will fall. The player then chooses either an easy, medium, or hard question, worth 100, 200, or 300 points, respectively. The game asks a question and gives the player a set period of time in which to select from among 16 possible answers. The player has one opportunity to get it wrong. If the player is wrong twice then the next player gets to try the same question. However, if the player gets the question right, then they get the points as well as a point bonus corresponding to the time remaining when the question was correctly answered. After answering a textual question correctly, a player has the opportunity to identify a music melody. Another type of question is the video question. A person will recite clues about a particular musician they once worked with and the player has to choose from among 16 possible answers. Further, the game throws an extended round every 3 rounds. In the extended round, there are actually 3 correct answers among the 16 and each is worth points.

Royal Flush Pinball Amtex / Brøderbund Software, Inc. [top]

This is a simulation of the real life pinball machine of the same name by Gottlieb. The main focus lies on a realistic feeling and the ball physics. The game is played with just four buttons: two to handle the two paddles, one to release the balls, and one to simulate the shaking on a real pinball machine. The whole table uses a poker design. There are multiple ways to receive bonus points, e.g. hitting one of the five cards on the upper part, three bumpers or The Hole which gives you a lot of points and lands the ball on the right paddle. Depending on the graphics card there are two ways how the machine is simulated: it is either stationary (you see the hole table at once) or it scrolls with the playing ball. The game features an extensive menu where you can set almost all aspects of the pinball machine, including inclination, number of playing balls and the amount of currency which flows through the paddles.

Trivial Pursuit Interactive Multimedia Game Western Technologies Inc. / Parker Brothers [top]

This is the first multimedia version of the classic Parker Brothers board game. It uses photos, animations, videos & voice clips to pose over 2000 questions and answers to Trivial Pursuit questions. In the Classic Game, up to 6 players roll an on-screen die and move their 'pie-dish' marker around the spoke-and-wheel game board, just like the board game. The square you land on is color coded to one of six trivia categories: People & Places, Sports & Leisure, History, Arts & Entertainment, Science & Nature, and Wild Card. Answering the trivia question correctly lets you take another turn. Further, if you are on the 'prize' square at the end of each spoke (1 spoke end for each category color), the correct answer grants you a colored pie piece in your pie-dish marker for that category. Once you have all 6 pie pieces in your dish, you need to head back to the hub for a final random question to win the game. In the Fast Game, up to 6 players can forgo the die-rolling and board movement. It's a race to answer correctly a question from each category first! Categories are randomly selected in this mode.
