Adventures

3x3 Eyes: Kyūsei Kōshu [K] Nihon Create [top]

This is based on the manga and anime series 3x3 Eyes. It tells the story of a simple Japanese teenager Yakumo, who lives in Tokyo and tries to study at his high school and to earn his living by working as a cross-dressing waiter at the same time. His father was a famous explorer and adventurer, but he died after a mysterious accident during one of his journeys to Tibet. One day, Yakumo meets a girl who calls herself Pai. She tells him that she belongs to an ancient powerful race of immortals, called the sanzhiyan, the three-eyed ones. It appears that Yakumo's father worked together with Pai, and that Pai's biggest wish is to become a normal human again. Since then, Yakumo and Pai work together, but they must be aware of other sanzhiyan - powerful demons with their own evil plans. The story of the game is based on the following episode: Yakumo receives a message from his friend, the Buddhist monk Naparvha, saying that a curse has fallen upon a village in China. A young girl was killed under mysterious circumstances, and two monks fell asleep and cannot wake up. Yakumo visits the village and begins the investigation, aided by Yue Hua, the sister of the dead girl. The game is a Japanese-style adventure. The game world is composed of still shots of locations and characters in anime style, and the player interacts with objects and characters by selecting choices from a menu (such as "Look", "Talk", etc.). Cutscenes are presented as animated sequences. A Premium Edition includes a character sketch book and an audio CD with game music, character introductions and voice actor interviews.

Adventures Of Down Under Dan, The PowerVision / Guildsoft [top]

This is a fun but obscure CD-ROM adventure game from PowerVision, a small developer in Australia. In 'virtual' time, you have four days of challenging encounters to meet and think your way through before you can achieve your quest to strike it rich and ensure that your future as a bush pilot is safe forever. The game begins with you in control of your plane. Needless to say, something quickly goes wrong, forcing you to crash-land the plane in some unknown area. Inventory-based puzzles, wacky humor, and general wackiness awaits as you blunder into one incident after another. It has a decent premise and a unique focus on Australian culture.

Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity, MTV's Viacom New Media [top]

All you'd expect from the eternally juvenile duo is here: fart jokes, painfully obvious sexual innuendoes, glorification of anything illegal or immoral, and the fruitless pursuit of girlfriends with one-liners such as, "Hey, um, do you like to do, like, stuff?" As with the show, the writers' satirical genius puts these antics into a perspective that makes everything undeniably funny. You appropriately control the two half-wits with a simple set of commands, using a mouse-driven interface that looks and operates suspiciously like a LucasArts adventure game. What makes this game so entertaining are the actions and reactions of the intelligence-challenged duo to the people and objects around them. Imagine the two as they interrogate patients on a mentally-deranged ward at the local jail. Or picture the look on Beavis' face as he inflates his shorts with a gas station air hose. Priceless. You can explore the entire world of Beavis and Butthead, and it includes 4 mini-games and 3 music videos. It features favorite show characters Todd, Daria, Van Driessen, Buzzcut, and Mr McVicker and many all-new characters. It has also voice talent by show actor Mike Judge the actual voice of Beavis and Butthead, all new animation from MTV animation studios and dialogue written by show writers, Sam Johnson & Chris Margil.

Bermuda Syndrome Century Interactive / BMG Interactive [top]

This is a fun but frustratingly difficult side-scrolling action adventure that is all but unknown outside a few countries in Europe. It tells a story of Jack, a World War II fighter pilot who was shot down into a mysterious jungle during a dogfight. As his plane comes hurtling out of the sky, we first catch a glimpse of our princess (yup, the Amazon-type one), all tied up and ready to be a Tyrannosaur's lunch. Fortunately for her, Jack's plane chops its head off on the way to crashing. Jack is left hanging from a tree by his parachute, with the princess still tied up on her platform. The game immediately will remind you of Delphine's Flashback. The graphics are much better here in SVGA. The controls in Bermuda Syndrome are not as intuitive, however, and coordinating some of the moves can take some practice, so you must save often. One of the major differences is that in this game, you need to worry about the *princess* even more than yourself, since she tags along merrily, oblivious to any danger she faces - and she can't fight, jump, or swim like you do. This means you not only have to deal with menacing dinosaurs of all kinds, but also have to protect the princess and keep her in your sight all the time. Fortunately, she does serve as an in-game hint system, and talking to her when you're stuck will often yield important clues. The game is also HUGE (228 screens), and you'll die a thousand deaths before finally finishing it.

Big Red Adventure Dynabyte / Core Design [top]

This is a point and click adventure taking place in Russia after Michael Gorbatsjov's Perestroika. You move your character over hand-drawn backgrounds, solving a big mystery that's taking place over an entire continent. In the old Russia there was Communism, queues, the Kremlin, Lenin, the KGB, queues, Karl Marx, the Cold War and queues. But in the new Russia, things have changed. Now there is Capitalism, KGB TV, Burger Czar and Trotsky Interactive Games. Oh, and queues (some things never change). Embroiled in this seething cauldron of cutthroat competition and cruel commercial cossacks, we find the beginning of our adventure. In a story of truly epic proportions, we are taken on a crazy, off-the-wall flight of fancy, from the snowy streets of Moscow, slipping and sliding across the icy steppes of Zerograd, along the route of the famed Orient Express and into the deep red heart of a secret so weird even David Lynch could never match it. The story is split into three parts and in each part you control one of three characters in the game. You can play a nerdy looking guy, a brainless bodybuilder and a femme fatale. It offers many good points: the high-resolution graphics allow a greater level of detail, the game provides full-screen graphics, there are over 50 characters to interact with, and it comes with a lot of humor! With more than 100 locations, it will provide players with various fun puzzles that will keep them busy.

Blackstar: Agent of Justice Worwyk Software [top]

This shareware adventure game has decent graphics and puzzles and was written by heavy metal musician Thomas Vitacco in his spare time. BlackStar stars you as a grizzled private detective with American Indian blood named BlackStar. The game starts out as just another day in a life of a PI. But it's not long until you stumble upon a gruesome murder and a more sinister plot. The graphics are very well-drawn, especially considering that this is essentially a one-man product, and there are many specific responses/retorts to your actions as opposed to the stock "you can't do that" or "there is nothing to see here" responses in most adventure games. Unfortunately, the user interface is far from intuitive: you have to right-click to exit any screen or cancel actions – a very cumbersome requirement that will take adventure gamers some time to get used to. It's a bit raunchy, you can peep into people's rooms by using the binoculars in the park. Most of what you see are either nude women or other "adult" scenes. The game is quite linear and puzzles can be illogical at times.

Blue Ice Art of Mind Productions / Psygnosis [top]

Blue Ice is a strangely compelling puzzle adventure which was released only in a few European countries, and then quickly disappeared from the market. The game is perhaps best described as a cross between surrealist painters Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, with a plot that is no less strange: you are a young prince who must prove himself worthy of a throne left for him by the belated King. This surreal game, in short, will tax both your intelligence and patience. It is, however, undeniably unique, with interesting plot and characters to warrant your time. Definitely a challenge for anyone who likes very difficult, esoteric puzzles. The game also predates another surrealistic game Treasure Quest and was similarly conceived as a contest which unfortunately never materialized. WARNING: This game induces severe headaches due to its almost incomprehensible puzzles and overdose of surreal art.

Bureau 13 Take Two Interactive Software / GameTek Inc. [top]

This is a puzzle, adventure game about an ultra-secret organization called Bureau 13, loosely based on the popular pen-and-paper roleplaying game of the same name. You play members of a highly classified government agency, whose mission is to identify, track and exterminate all forms of paranormal and supernatural phenomena. To accomplish this you must set up a team using your six Bureau 13 field operatives, each with his or her own unique skills and abilities. After one member of the organization draws unwanted attention to himself, the Bureau decides to neutralize him by sending two agents on his trail. The game offers many characters to choose from such as thief, priest, mech and vampire etc. Since each character has different skills, each puzzle can be solved in a number of ways, leading to different endings.

Burn: Cycle Trip Media / Philips Interactive Media, Inc. [top]

Burn:Cycle is a first-person DOS action/adventure with a cyberpunk theme. Okay, so cyberpunk is cliche, but you've got to admit it's a pretty appropriate genre for a computer game. You play Sol Cutter, a data thief who's just been infected with a deadly virus. You, Sol, have 90 minutes to solve the mystery get the virus out of your system. ...This is one of those action/adventures in which the action is so perfunctory it feels tacked on. Oh, here come the bad guys. Bang bang bang. No problem. Oh, here come some fragmenting meteorites. Bang bang, no problem. I can't imagine a real action fan being satisfied by the action in this game, but since I'm an adventure weenie, it didn't bother me at all. The plot involves a lot of running around in a modern metropolis circa 2043, with attempts to sneak into hotel rooms without getting shot, and finding the various people around town who can help you sort out the mystery of the time bomb that is ticking away in your head.

Captain Safety General Insurance [top]

This is a free promotional game made by the insurance industry to teach people about how to properly handle hazardous materials and not get hurt on the job. As you can probably guess, it’s a rather easy game as the last thing you want to do in an edutainment game about safety is make it hard to actually learn about safety, particularly if it means you might have to actually pay out on a claim. That might hurt the CEO’s bonus or something. The game starts with the theft of the Lona Misa from a museum and the police call you, Captain Safety, to retrieve the valuable painting from the clutches of criminal mastermind Danny Danger, who is holed up in his castle full of dangerous materials. The game does have some brief action scenes, such as one where you don a hard hat and try to walk across the screen without getting hit on the head by falling blocks, but otherwise is your standard inventory based cartoon adventure game. Also, the game is playable in English, French or German.

Caribbean Disaster [G] Ikarion Software GmbH / Joker Verlag Labiner GmbH [top]

Somewhere in the ocean is a little island, inhabited by a President and three ministers (of the air force, navy, and army). The island also has ten other resident citizens. Every morning the President receives money from the American and Russian embassies, which can be given to the ministers or spent to improve the President’s residence in the Arctic. When two of the three ministers vote against the President, there is a vote of non-confidence and an election happens. Now the player has to convince the population of their leadership abilities, using the unique skills of special contacts: the chief of the Secret Police, for example, arrests political enemies (the ministers), the radio disc jockey spreads false news and the priest sells weapons. Three types of weapons also enter into these negotiations – tanks, zeppelins and submarines, one fitting each of the Defense ministries. After every round the player can attack their political enemies in a very military fashion.

Change In The Weather, A Andrew Plotkin [top]
A well-deserved winner of the first IF Competition, Inform division, in 1995. A Change in The Weather is a clever, very atmospheric game that begins with a deceptively simple premise: You get stuck out in the rain. This is one difficult little game, made of interlocking time-sensitive parts with ample opportunity to get things irrevocably wrong. Consists of two acts, one before and one during the all-important and landscape-transforming downpour. Well-polished prose. Excellent building of tension. Odd and twisty map. Very satisfying. Highly recommended to every IF fan, although beginners might find the difficult puzzles too daunting.

Christminster Gareth Rees [top]

Christminster is a thoroughly entertaining features some of the best NPCs ever coded in a game, and memorable atmosphere and puzzles. You start out with a simple task of finding your uncle at a university... a task that quickly evolves into treasure-hunting, fact-finding, and adventure on a grand scale. Although reminiscent of Graham Nelson's classic Curses in its Victorian setting and gentle British wit, Christminster truly holds its own with more colorful characters (most of which you need to take advantage of, one way or the other), and a more structured plot, confined gameworld, and easier (but not easy) puzzles. A great game for every IF fan, especially anyone who's intimidated by Curses's complexity, or an IF beginner who has played his/her first IF games and are now ready for a tougher challange.

Chronomaster DreamForge Intertainment / Capstone Software [top]

Before the phenomenal Sanitarium, Dreamforge designed this sci-fi adventure written by two of the most famous and revered science fiction authors of all time, Roger Zelazny and Jane Lindskold. It takes place in a future where universe creation has been taken to an art form with the advent of Pocket Universes (one of the most innovative concepts introduced in this game by Zelazny). In the game you play the role of Rene Korda, one of the most respected creators of Pocket Universes in the galaxy. The Terran Regional Goverment asks you to intervene when five Pocket Universes are put to stasis by an unknown force. You are a chronomaster - a "time cop" who must find and correct asynchronisms while tracking down the criminal mastermind. Each universe has its own laws of physics, where science and magic co-exist. The artwork is absolutely stunning from start to finish. From vehicles to edifices to creatures to monsters to the ambiance of outer and inner space, every scene is little short of spectacular. Excellent puzzles (with many gadgets to use), plot, and a truly long journey add to a great game, despite some bugs. This game is one of a kind, especially since Zelazny died of cancer in the process of, along with Jane, creating one of the most original stories ever conceived.

Courage! [G] Top Job / Bundesministerium für Unterricht und Kultur [top]

This is a really successful adventure from Austria where you take on the role of Wanda Terrano, who belongs to the resistance movement CO2000. Because, in 2039, the Earth is ruled by a dictatorship. The story is extremely varied, exciting and very thoughtful. There are few serious issues in the game but it has great comic-style graphics, good sound and a music backdrop. The only slight criticism is the somewhat lugubrious control because you have to show the bottom of the screen to always make the game interface visible.

The game itself is a fairly short adventure game, based on this tv commercial.

Daedalus Encounter, The Mechadeus / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This is an adventure/puzzle game from the short-lived subgenre of interactive movies. The game follows a trio of space marines who fought in an interstellar war: Casey (the player character), Ari (Tia Carrere) and Zack (Christian Bocher). The game opens, and the story begins, just as Casey has been brought back to life by his partners. After being in a horrible space accident, Casey's body was all but destroyed, and he is now only a brain, grafted to a small flying pod (a "Virtual Control Center"). In this new form, Casey possesses limited ability to interact with his environment, his only way to communicate being through a yes/no interface and by emitting light pulses. Upon awakening, Casey finds out that the war is over and that Ari and Zack have become pirates, stealing salvage from the war to survive. During a salvage mission, the trio crash into and are stranded on a derelict alien spacecraft, which is on a collision course with a star. It is up to Casey to help his partners and explore the mystery of the Daedalus spaceship. In order to save themselves, the trio must explore the huge alien ship and solve a large number of Myst-like puzzles, such as connecting colored laser-beams with mirrors, playing an advanced form of connect-the-dots with a computer interface, and one combat sequence, battling aliens called Krin. The puzzles are mixed with acting sequences from Carrere and Bocher, whose interaction with the player creates some light-hearted comedy.

Dark Eye, The Inscape / Expert Software [top]

This is an interactive adventure based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe featuring the voice of William S. Burroughs and the music of Thomas Dolby. While experiencing an original Poesque adventure, the player is transported into several of Poe's most famous works including "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "Berenice". All of the stories are surrealistically rendered with claymation figures and haunting music. You go through each story twice - first as the victim, and again as the perpetrator. As if that's not creepy enough, the game also uses as a framing device an original story that is a very intriguing pastiche of Poe mythos. Burrough's reading of "The Masque of the Red Death" is not to be missed. Gameplay involves clicking on various objects and people to trigger events to advance the story. Despite this limited click-and-watch, the game's haunting atmosphere and style (with unique claymation actors) make it a must-have for horror fans.

Die Geheimchroniken des Howard Carter [G] Pirat Art Studio / PC Spiel [top]

The Secret Chronicles of Howard Carter is an obscure game from the comic author Mathias Neumann aka Tikva, who gained a lot of notoriety with comics like Space Rat. It is a 1st person point & click adventure and it actually has a pretty ambitious story: because you take on the role of the Egyptologist Howard Carter, who investigated the Egyptian tombs. The story is based on the man who discovered in 1922 the tomb of Tutankhamen which was the only tomb found that had not been looted and contained priceless treasures. The drawn images are very beautiful and lyrical, although the puzzles may seem contrived. Only the first Chapter of the game was completed though more were planned.

Dig, The LucasArts [top]

A group of scientists discovers an asteroid that is on its way to a collision with the Earth. Is there any way to prevent the disaster? Boston Low, a NASA veteran, is sent to command a space expedition on the asteroid. Accompanied by the journalist Maggie Robbins and the archaeologist Brink, Boston investigates the asteroid and finds a strange structure that undoubtedly belongs to an alien civilization. During the course of investigations, the team finds itself on a seemingly deserted planet. To their surprise they discover that it is hollow, and that there is evidence of alien technology inside. They try to figure out what it is for... when suddenly it is transformed into a crystal-like spacecraft and they find themselves hurtling through space at warp speed, across the galaxy to the planet of origin. Where are they now, and why were they brought here? And more importantly, how will they ever figure out a way to get back home? Wherever home is now. They find themselves on a planet that was obviously once inhabited by a highly evolved civilization. Yet now it is a hostile world, desolate and abandoned with no sign of anyone anywhere, and none of the artifacts make any logical (human) sense. They know that somehow they're going to have to learn how these aliens thought, and maybe even why they're gone now, in order to be able to understand their technology and get back home. So they split up to increase their chances of finding something helpful. "Dig" is a point-and-click adventure game with a simple one-cursor interface and more complex puzzles than usually encountered in LucasArts' adventures. Despite having a serious story, the game follows in many ways the tradition of LucasArts' humorous adventures. It's also based on a story of Steven Spielberg and was highly anticipated before its release.

Discworld Perfect 10 Productions, Teeny Weeny / Psygnosis [top]

One of the most underrated adventure games ever, Discworld is based on Terry Pratchett's pun-filled fantasy Discworld series, in which the whole world is carried through space by a turtle, and idioms and puns do have a life of their own. As bumbling wizard Rincewind, prevent the Dragon from destroying the world. The game has great humor (although dialogues drag on at times), and some of the most devious but logical puzzles ever designed. Famed Monty Python veteran Eric Idle's performance as the voice of Rincewind is flawless, although some dialogues are very long-winded to the point of frustrating. Clever puzzles and hilarious animations, however, more than make up for it. Highly recommended for Pratchett fans and fans of zany adventure games in general.

Dragon History / Draci Historie [Cz] NoSense / Vochozka Trading [top]

Bert is a young dragon that lives with his parents Berta and Herbert in a magical land, where dragons got civilized, started to wear clothes and live peacefully with humans. One day, Herbert suddenly disappears, with rumors saying the he left his wife and son behind to search for a lost treasure. Meanwhile, a magical wand called Eveline decides to rule the world out of boredom, using Bert to cast a petrifying spell on the marionettes of a traveling puppeteer and cause other mischief among the local population. Now, Bert must fix all the trouble caused by Eveline, and search for his missing father. Draci Historie is a Czech point-and-click adventure game, originally the first Czech CD game ever to be published in 1995, and later released as open-source freeware in 2006 by the original developer. It follows the standards of the genre, where the main objective is to collect a series of scenery objects and use them to solve puzzles. The inventory shows the interior of a brown sack, and can be accessed by placing the cursor on the top of the screen. A map showing an overhead view of the land can be summoned by positioning the cursor at the bottom. New places are automatically added to the map as the player explores the surroundings, allowing instantaneous travel to any of the previously visited locations. The dialogue with other characters uses the branching tree system implemented by several other games, where multiple questions and answers appear listed as options at the bottom and the player has to select one of them. There is no menu with verbs, instead all the actions are performed with the right mouse button, while the left one is used to get descriptions of objects and portions of the scenery. In late 2009, Robert Spalek personally added the game to the ScummVM interpreter project.

Dust: A Tale of the Wired West CyberFlix / GTE Entertainment [top]

Dust: A Tale of the Wired West is an excellent adventure that makes up for relatively lackluster puzzles with authentic Western atmosphere and memorable characters and dialogues. Set in the 1880s in Diamond Back, you play a mysterious stranger who shows up in town one day. While exploring the town and meeting its people, you will cross a dangerous outlaw named The Kid, meet a distressed Indian tribe, hear rumors of the lost treasure, get involved in a murder and a scam, and more exciting adventures that characterized the Gold Rush days. The game is played from a first-person perspective. The world is fully realized in 3D, with 3D actors moving around the town in real-time. Similar to The Last Express a few years later, the world of Dust moves around in real time: people go about their business, and day turns into night. Most traditional inventory-based puzzles are quite easy, but the more challenging (and more interesting) ones are "realistic" puzzles that require you to observe people's actions and act at the right time. One of the most memorable things about Dust is its memorable characters. In contrary to 3D models that walk around town, characters during close-up conversations are presented by 2D digitized photographs of real actors with appropriate facial expressions. Although there are some over-the-top acting, most acting in the game is surprisingly well done and well above average. You can talk with each character at great length, and many of them have a lot to say that are optional material – anecdotes that heighten the game's believability. The relatively easy puzzles in Dust are offset by a decent game length and multiple puzzle solutions and endings. If you love adventure games, chances are you will love this atmospheric underdog that deserves much more attention than its sales figures suggest.

Eastern Mind 2: Chu-Teng [J] Osamu Sato Productions / Sony, OutSide Directors Company [top]

This is a Japanese follow-up to Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong Nou from the same creator. It continues the surreal adventure with Myst like 3D graphics from the previous game. It is quite rare. The game is less messy, and more playable - it's easier to find your way, especially since it's also way more straightforward and descriptive than its predecessor. Most of the game consists of going back and forth through the Shrine of the Stars, a circular network based on the Chinese equivalent to the Western system of zodiac constellations - whose every room is inhabited by a sacred creature. The game logically relies more on interaction with characters, and the inventory is also brought to use more often seeing the increase in item circulation - which also means less exploration and more fetch quests. The fun characters get more and more grotesque and exaggerated as you progress, and their unpredictable behavior just adds to the confusion. Actual exploration has mostly been replaced with backtracking between characters. The soundtrack is still experimental as hell, though. This time, it's gone completely erratic - most of the background music tracks are actually seconds-short loops of wrecked, sometimes even abrasive electro mixing saturated oscillators, atonal drum machines, digitized choirs and 808 cowbells.

Eastern mind is a 1st POV, inventory-based point-and-click adventure game. You start as Rin, a young man who has lost his soul. With a temporary soul from a friend that will keep you alive for 49 hours, you travel to the "living" island of Tong Nou to recover your soul. Tong Nou is a strange, alive island, that takes the shape of a giant green head (actually the one of the designer Osamu Sato). There, you will visit the five lands that were created when the universe was born: the Lands of Time, Desire, Dreaming and Life, and the Central Mountain of Tong Nou. You will revisit these lands often during the game. To solve your quest, you even have to die and reincarnate nine times, causing you to play the game from the perspective of nine different characters. To complete the game, you have to accomplish the goals of each character.

Flight of the Amazon Queen Interactive Binary Illusions / Renegade Software [top]

It is 1949 and you play Joe King, pilot for hire with his small private plane the "Amazon Queen". The game is a spoof of old time adventure serials. After yet another daring escape at the start of the game, Joe suddenly remembers that he is scheduled to fly the famous movie star, Faye Russell, to a photo shoot in the Amazon jungle the next morning. But when he arrives at the hotel to pick her up, his arch rival Hans Anderson of Flying Dutchman Airlines locks him in the room. Finding a way out, he takes off with Miss Russell only to have his plane get hit by lightning and crash in the Amazon jungle. Now he will have to face some horrible challenges to survive: 6 feet tall 'pygmies', beautiful Amazon women (and their happy prisoners!), misguided missionaries, a wisecracking parrot, and of course a mad scientist, who's trying to take over the world by injecting dinosaur DNA into the women. This is a long, 3rd person, point & click game, with easy to use icons for action, a small inventory, and a brilliant map. The music is upbeat and changes with each location, the graphics are imaginative and colorful, with careful attention to often-hysterical details (Aztec temple statues holding baseball bats!), and the short animated cut scenes used to advance the story are a pure delight to watch. The puzzles are crazy, absorbing and fun (wearing fake breasts, bartering with a pygmy), and are usually solved by clues you have picked up in conversations and/or with inventory items. Most are not too difficult, but they do get harder as you go along. The CD-ROM version also offers surprisingly good voice acting - a rare treat in adventure games. It was made freeware on Mar 16/2004 when the source code was kindly given to the ScummVM team who then made it fully compatible with their engine.

Fort Boyard: The Challenge Expand Images / Microids [top]

This game will transport you into the heart of a foreboding island fortress and one of the world's most celebrated TV game shows. You'll need daring, strength, concentration, skill and speed to confront this island citadel and its formidable Fortress Council, overseen by Father Fouras from the top of his tower. 1 to 6 players per team meet the challenge of the Fortress and its inhabitants. Each puzzle is prefaced by a required skill, allowing a team of players to select the most skilled from the ranks. These skills are “Clever”, “Tough”, “Agile”, “Sharp”, “Strong”, and the dubious, “Captain”. Puzzles are chosen randomly so no game plays exactly the same twice. By selecting puzzles carefully, it is possible to avoid the dexterity puzzles if they are tedious. The time penalty is only minor, thereby allowing choice of a more cerebral challenge. There are twenty different types of puzzles, which have different solutions each time so there is much room for replay. There is seventy-five minutes of actual game time in which to complete enough challenges to collect seven keys. Once all seven keys have been collected, there is the opportunity to free any team members who have been locked away as a result of failing to completing a challenge. The part of the game that follows is the “Fortress Council” challenge. Each player must play a puzzle game against the Fortress Council to acquire twenty-five seconds to collect treasure from the Treasure House in the next challenge. The total time collected is added to three minutes and the team is returned to Father Fouras for further clues, which are earned by completed successive challenges (“The Adventure Stage”). Successive clues indicate a mystery word that is the key to the Treasure Room. When the team has collected enough clues to identify the mystery word, they are led to the final challenge. On a giant letter board, using a combination of team members and cannonballs, the team must spell out the mystery word. When correct, the team is allowed access to the Treasure Room to collect money for the time earned earlier. This entails clicking on virtual players to collect treasure and then sending them to the exit repeatedly until time runs out, being certain not to allow them to be caught in the chamber. The total loot collected is totaled and a score is given.

Foul Play: Mystery at Awkward Manor The Armchair Travel Company [top]

This is a non-violent, CD-ROM based murder mystery game for 1-6 players (ages 7 and up), set in a magnificent 14 room English mansion in the 1950's. Six guests have been invited to visit Sir John Stiffning for dinner this evening. He thinks they're friends, but he'll be murdered by one of them before dinner tonight. It has over 5,000 photos, 65 movies, and 2,000 sound bites. A murder mystery environment includes 39 fully-interactive panoramas and over 2,000 possible clue locations with over 4,000 possible solutions. In this game, each player chooses to take the role of one of Sir John's guests. Each player then explores the mansion in turn, searching for clues, and racing against the other players until the mystery is solved. Game turn lengths may be either 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5 minutes each, which allows younger, less experienced players to have longer turns than parents or older players. Extensive help screens are also available within the game, containing information and hints on searching for clues, deductive reasoning, interviewing suspects, how to win, and more. There are ten game levels available, with levels 1 - 3 containing built-in help and tutorials, and taking 15 - 20 minutes to solve. Level 10 games usually take an hour or more to solve. With 4,700 possible solutions, every game you play is new and exciting! Players take on the identities and personas of Baron Awkward's six guests: Mrs. Thatcham, Miss Sang Lo, Mrs. Drabble, Major Gallop, Dr. Quandry and Senator Bluster. The characters arrive at 7:40 for an 8:00 PM dinner. Unfortunately, as they wander around the mansion, the host is murdered. It is obvious one of the characters is the perpetrator – but who, when and with what murder weapon is the mystery that needs solving.

Framed Machination [top]

Framed is a charming side-scrolling action/adventure game that successfully combines arcade and puzzle-solving elements into a satisfying experience. In this game, you start out as a prisoner who, as the title suggests, has been framed and must break out of prison to prove your innocence by catching the real culprit. The designers masterfully weaves arcade and adventure elements: as in most platform games, you have a "health bar" which goes down as you are shot at or hit by the guards. You can pick up various weapons to defend yourself, as well as "power-ups" to regain health. However, brute force isn't all that is needed to succeed: you must also solve various puzzles by collecting and using items, which sometimes must be combined. All the puzzles are logical, and some are even creative. Although they won't be a challenge to expert adventurers, they are far from obvious. Excellent built-in hints should appeal to adventure novices as well. There are a few things that could be better, such as some extreme pixel-hunting (items are hard to separate from the background) and unattractive graphics, but none of them cripples the game. While you do have weapons and ammunition, there are ways to avoid shooting enemies altogether. Up to 16 inventory items can be held at one time and some can be combined to use to solve a situation or puzzle.

Full Throttle LucasArts [top]

You are Ben, leader of the Polecats, one of the toughest and meanest biker gangs on the road. You were just having a bit of good clean fun at the Kickstand bar when old man Corley, owner of Corley Motors, dropped by for a bit of reminiscing. Next thing you know, you wake up in a dumpster, someone tells you about an ambush (of your Polecats?) and you got mixed up in the greatest adventure of your lifetime. You must use your wits sometimes, but more often you must use brute strength, have a bad attitude, and resort to plain old-fashioned thievery to solve the problems you encounter. Full Throttle is one of the better known adventure games from LucasArts where you direct a character around a 2-D screen and solve a few puzzles along to the way. It also adds some arcade sequences. There is one place where you ride your motorcycle around and around on an old mine road, beating up other motorcyclists to gain more powerful inventory items with which to beat up yet other motorcyclists. You also participate in a demolition derby (this was the hardest part for me) where you have to steer clear of (or hit, as the case may be) other cars to reach an objective. The puzzles in this game are easier than usual because most of the inventory items get used in the same chapter in which you found them. There's lots of interesting characters (plenty of cliches, but put to good use), and your normal LucasArts SCUMM interface where something happens only when you pick an object to which you can interact. The cartoon-style animation is great and the cutscenes all look nearly TV-quality.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within Sierra On-Line [top]

The Beast Within" is a direct sequel to Sins of the Fathers, the first in the "supernatural mystery" adventure series that tells us the story of a bookstore owner and writer Gabriel Knight, the last offspring of generations of "Schattenjaegers" (shadowhunters), whose task is to fight the evil forces that abound in the world. After leaving New Orleans, Gabriel moves to the Ritter Castle in Bavaria, Germany, his family heritage. One day, a group of peasants approach the castle, and the elder tells you about a terrible death of a little girl, who was killed by a vicious wolf. Suspecting the wolf could be a supernatural creature, the peasant asks you, the Schattenjaeger, to purge the evil. The investigation brings Gabriel and his assistant Grace Nakimura to the mysterious Hunter Society and to Bavaria's dark past. "The Beast Within" utilizes a cast of live actors and full-motion video technology: the actors are filmed over photorealistic images of Munich and its surroundings, and nearly every interaction with the environment leads to a FMV sequence. However, unlike most "interactive movies" that were popular in this era, "The Beast Within" is a full-fledged adventure game, with a lot of dialogues, detective work to do, and puzzles to solve. Unlike the first game, "The Beast Within" is entirely point-and-click: all the icons were replaced by a single cursor.

Gahan Wilson's The Ultimate Haunted House Byron Preiss Multimedia Company / Microsoft Home [top]

The game places the player in the middle of a bizarrely humorous and eerie haunted house populated by Wilson's wacky characters. The player must explore 13 rooms and find 13 hidden keys before 13 hours on the mystery clock run out. Game play consists of interacting with the a cast of ghoulish residents who populate the house and move about it, and in collecting and exchanging an inventory of items with them. All of the main characters, as well as the house itself, contain artificial personalities that react to the actions of the player; the moody characters and the opportunity to explore the house in any order creates infinite replayability. Dozens of activities and puzzles embedded in the game also have consequences. These activities include a monster assembly lab, monster movies in the screening room, cooking a concoction in the kitchen, composing an organ tune, and other traditional puzzle games adapted to the computer. The game contains many clever voices and the opening tune "Monster Mash". A cast of characters populate the house and make appearances throughout in the game. These include Frankenstein, a vampiress, a two-headed monster, a mad scientist, and a kid (transported there by the mad scientist's lab ray). Gahan Wilson is a ghost in the game, but there are two Gahans: one good, one evil, and deciphering which is which is one of the elements of game play. The thirteen rooms include a menagerie, kitchen, foyer, torture chamber, the monster lab, the screening room, the game room, a library, an attic, a bathroom, a basement hallway, a music room, and an art gallery. There are also a variety of monsters whose interaction with the player is limited to placing curses upon them.

Grackon's Curse Ednovation [top]

Grackon's Curse is a little-known title released by a now defunct Taiwanese company. It is a Myst-like point-and-click adventure that uses letterboxing in its display. Graphically, it is comparable to Myst, but it does not limit itself to a slide show presentation. You are the heir to Castle Crondiff. Grackon, an evil wizard, cursed the Castle and its up to you to journey through its rooms and find clues and keys to progress and eventually remove the curse. An annoying part of the control is that sometimes you have to take three steps before you can turn around so be careful to go the right way first time. The sound effects are limited and repetitive, as is the music. The voice acting is laughable. It was obvious there were a limited number of people doing a number of voice parts. Of greater significance, this had a number of situations where making a mistake led to death (and being kicked out to the desktop) without warning. Save regularly to reduce the frustration from this aspect. This is a fairly simple game that could be a way of introducing potential adventure gamers to the world of adventure games. However, for the more experienced adventurer, this will be finished in a matter of hours with very little challenge.

Great Myths and Legends Volume 1: Monsters and Mythical Creatures EMME Interactive / Cambrix Publishing [top]

Come face to face with the terrible monsters and strange creatures of myth and legend: the Yeti, Minotaur, Loch Ness Monster, Cyclops, Leviathan, Pegasus, Golem, Unicorn, Gorgons, and Phoenix. The CD-ROM is supposed to be an authoritative look at the history and origins of these beasties. Includes: virtual 3D environments for each creature, 3D animation, video, narration, color illustration and original and historical documents. It begins in a castle with four doors, two of which are designed to take you to the sections on "Legendary Lands and Lost Cities" and "Legendary Heroes and Villains" available as further volumes in the series. When you get to the end of the corridor, you find yourself outside with several glowing gems embedded in the terrain. Clicking on one will take you to a section on one (or more) of the monsters. It takes a bit of stumbling around to discover which creature is tied to which gem. After you've gathered all your information about a creature, the game treats you to an animation of what it was supposed to look like. The music is appropriately ominous, the graphics are beautifully detailed (you'll need to know how to switch your monitor to at least 32,000 colors) and narrator Patrick Floersheim, dressed as a monk, is appropriately hammy.

Guilty: Innocent Until Caught 2 Divide By Zero / Psygnosis Limited [top]

This sequel to the underrated Innocent Until Caught sports the same flexible game engine, with better and longer plot. Intergalactic two-bit thief and failed womanizer Jack T. Ladd is back, but this time you can also choose to play as Ladd's female nemesis and potential love interest, who has her own different path that converges with Jack's near the end. The puzzles in Guilty are not as challenging or innovative as those in the first game (there are a lot less items you can combine, for example), although they are still fun to solve. Dialogues and plot also are not as well-written this time around, but the 2 diverging paths that make the game replayable at least twice more than makes up for it. A fun game if you like the first game, but nothing revolutionary. The game starts with Ysanne, the tough feminist redhead, capturing Jack for his crimes. After being jailed aboard the spaceship Relentless, Jack escapes his cell and destroys the ship's hyperdrive, forcing the duo to land on a mining planet for fuel. It turns out that there is noone on the planet, and they have to figure out what has happened. The clues lead to another planet, and an alien invasion. As the unwilling team goes from planet to planet, they try to locate the source of the alien invasion and eventually stop it. The game features a simple set of six actions you can take, which make for an easy interaction with the game world. Guilty, like its predecessor, uses rendered flight scenes for the spacecraft landing and taking off. The CD version of the game adds full speech for the two protagonists.

Hard Evidence: The Marilyn Monroe Files T1 New Media / Novell [top]

The death of blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe remains a mystery, with many conspiracy theories doubting the official line that she committed suicide. Did her film company feel she was no longer worth as much as her insurance valuation, and seek to 'settle' her for this reason? Was she linked to an attempt on Fidel Castro's life? Her connections with Mob figures and her illicit relationship with John F. Kennedy add to the mystery. Four different people are trying to piece together the truth in this game, and you have control of them all. You are a policeman, coroner, attorney who is assembling his own theory, and an investigative reporter, each of whom has potential access to different information. You'll encounter witness testimonies, classified evidence, and cities all over the US. The game is a point and click adventure making heavy use of real documents and audio footage.

Harold's Mission / Misja Harolda [PL] ART4 Comp Group / MarkSoft [top]

Although his harmless looks may fool you at first, Harold is a mercenary assassin - and this time he has been hired to get rid of Virus, who is terrorizing the world of Pixels. As these names may suggest, the action takes place in a fantasy-like interior of a computer, which happens to look - to our surprise - more like a run-down town than a cyberpunk "information highway". Misja Harolda: Zaginiony w systemie (Harold's mission: Lost in the system) is a point-and-click adventure game. It features conversations with dialogue options - wrong choices may even lead to your demise. Another thing that makes it "Sierra-like" is that it also keeps track of your score.

Hilfe für Amajambere [G] Art Department Werbeagentur GmbH / Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung [top]

A dearth plagues the villages at the hillside of the elevated plain in the middle of the region Amajambere located in Ubuntaka, Africa. The harvest is getting worse and worse due to heavy rains washing away the fertile earth and the sun withering down the crops during the growth-periods. To prevent the people from abandoning their villages and emigrate to the capital city Majikitoyo located 90 kilometers away, the Federal Republic of Germany and the government Ubuntaka started a project. Basically the idea is to teach the farmers about multi-level plant cultivation in order to better preserve their land and increase the quality of the harvest for generations to come. After his predecessor got badly injured, Paul Lerche from the Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung is sent to the village Mihanatoke to oversee the project which is still met with much resistance by many farmers. In addition seed-theft hinders the villagers from planting anything at all. Gameplay-wise, it's a serious but traditional point and click adventure. The player takes over the control of Paul Lerche trying to convince the villagers about the good the project will do and at the same time solve the problem of the seed-thefts. Using the mouse, the player visits the different locations and looks at, takes or combines items he finds in the game-world in order to solve the many riddles in the game and move the story forward. Since the game is an educational software aimed at children and young adults it is however also very dialogue heavy. Together with Paul's entries in his journal, the dialogues are used as the core way to educate the player on why multi-level plant cultivation is important, why the people are resistant, what the unique challenges are they have to deal with in such regions every day and many other lessons about Africa. While they are often multiple-choice, most of the time if the "wrong" answer is chosen, the game automatically also goes through all the other options in order to convey its message and advance the story.

I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream The Dreamer's Guild / Acclaim / Cyberdreams [top]

In this dark sci-fi adventure based on famous author Harlan Ellison's work (his voice is even used in the game), during an arms race the three great powers each built a gigantic supercomputer system to wage nuclear war. Unfortunately, the three computers merged into one and became sentient, or 'woke up.' This new entity, which called itself 'AM', destroyed all of humanity except for five people. At the beginning of the game AM offers each of the five humans a chance to take a quest. The quest is designed to face each individual's fears, past crimes and moral failings. AM makes vague promises about rewards if the quests are successful. This separates the game into six episodes: each person's adventure, plus the endgame (which can be attempted by any character). You can play the adventures in any order. Each quest is distinct and, in its own way, interesting. However, they all deal with very grim subject matter: human sacrifice, Nazi medical experiments, rape, and murder.

In The 1st Degree Adair and Armstrong / Broderbund Software, Inc. [top]

An intriguing CD-ROM courtroom adventure, this casts you in a role of a District Attorney in San Francisco who must build a case against James Tobin, a well-known painter, who stands accused of murdering Zachary Barnes, co-owner (with Tobin) of a hip art gallery. Your goal is to secure a first-degree murder conviction (with a grand theft thrown in for a good measure) - anything less would be considered a defeat. But, as you may guess, this is no simple task, for the shooting can easily be made to look like an act of self-defense, and the witnesses are either not very cooperative or not very reliable. The game is divided into two sections: during the first, pre-trial phase, you will examine the evidence from the murder scene, review the police interrogations of the defendant and the witnesses, and conduct your own witness interviews, hoping to cajole or force out of them any helpful testimony. You will gradually discover a fairly complex web of relations among the main characters in the drama, plenty of possible motives, and at least a few plausible crime scenarios. Furthermore, you will never be completely sure just who is telling the whole truth: Tobin's girlfriend, who also had a brief fling with the victim? the victim's wife, who seems almost too cooperative? Tobin's assistant, who appears to know much more than he admits? The second phase of the game, the actual trial, is where you must elicit the appropriate testimony from the witnesses (praying that they won't change their stories) and undermine the strategies of the cunning defense lawyer, all under the watchful eye of the local media, whose members will not spare you withering criticism in case you blunder. You will quickly learn how crucial it is to ask the right questions (even during the pre-trial phase): select a wrong approach, and the witness will clam up, depriving you of a chance to get some helpful information. You will no doubt be replaying the interview sessions over and over again, trying out various questioning options in an effort to chart out the right path. The game certainly boasts crisp, attractive photography and video; the acting is solid (which, in CD-ROM game terms, means 'on par with your average daytime soap'); and piecing together a viable courtroom strategy proves sufficiently challenging to keep a patient gamer interested. But playing it over and over again takes its toll.

Every character has their own personality and you have to find their weakest places, talking to all of them and collecting the items which are available for your inventory. The game sports some good puzzles, believable characters, and an excellent plot.

J.B. Harold: Blue Chicago Blues [J] Riverhill Soft Inc. [top]

This is the second adventure of J. B. Harold, the small-town detective from Liberty Ville. This time it is personal for J. B. - his fiancé Catherine White is the prime suspect in the murder case of Angie Hart in Chicago. What already starts as an intense case of a killed woman suddenly takes a dramatic turn when J. B.'s girlfriend dies at the same location as the previous victim. In her possession: Angie Hart's murder weapon and a bag of cocaine. Although made to look like a suicide J. B. knows that Catherine's death was murder. Now J. B. sets out to find the killers of both women and soon it becomes clear that there is a common link in the past of the victims. With the help of a local PD veteran J. B. is setting out to unravel the mystery of Catherine's and Angie's youth while trying to stay alive - a powerful opponent is trying to stop the investigation before J. B. uncovers the secrets of the past. Multiple endings and tricky challenges give this adventure a good replay value although some of the stock scenes (for example: entering the car to drive somewhere) get a little boring with time. There are multiple ways of solving this case and your actions determine the outcome. Graphics are a step up from the first J. B. Harold installment, this time most scenes are live-action footage with good and convincing acting, the maps are isometric 3-D views with points of interested clearly marked and the menus have been redesigned as well. Most outside scenes were shot in Chicago and have an authentic feel to it, the inside studio scenes are carefully crafted with great decorations and a fairly big budget (from the looks of it). LaserActive technology successfully makes the story a thilling adventure. Your eyes wil be glued to this large-scale interactive movie game, just like watching a well-done Hollywood movie. Welcome to a sensational new mystery adventure, like you have never experienced before.

J.B. Harold: Manhattan Requiem - Angels Flying in the Dark [J] Riverhill Soft / CyberFront [top]

This Japanese mystery adventure was originally on some Japanese computer platforms in 1987 before this pc conversion. A 24-year-old woman was found dead in her flat in Manhattan, New York. Her skull was crushed - it was clear that she was murdered. Further investigation showed that she was working as a pianist. The police can find no clues, so it's time for the private detective J.B. Harold to investigate the murder and to bring the killer to justice. Despite its Japanese origins, Manhattan Requiem has realistic graphic design without any manga/anime influences. As an adventure game, it has Japanese influences (no inventory, no puzzles), as well as Western ones (relative freedom in navigation, detailed dialogue system, no "trigger commands" to advance the plot). The game plays similarly to a real investigation: the player has to question suspects, collect evidence, find new leads, after which new locations become accessible. It is also possible to review all the data collected during the investigation in-game, by going to a bar at any time. A new art style is introduced in the PC version, which would eventually be used for future versions of the game as well as the entire series. It uses the same Japanese voice track that was in the Laser Active version, as well as having the same full motion introductory video. However it does not seem to have the option to switch to English.

Jewels Of The Oracle ELOI / Discis Entertainment / Dreamcatcher Games [top]

Jewels of the Oracle is a stationary puzzle game with no real story line or plot. A total of 24 well-designed, ingenious puzzles must be solved, each independent of the others. Most of them can be played in two difficulty levels (Easy or Hard), and the Oracle provides clues to help along the way. The beautiful graphics, where the puzzles reside, are designed in an Egyptian or Mesopotamian style. Music plays in the background to provide atmosphere, but it can be turned off if it gets repetitive. The basic layout is a hexagon around an Oracle's well. There are three doors on the outside of the hexagon, and the first one is where you begin the game. In each room is a puzzle you have to solve to get a jewel which must be taken back to the Oracle's well. The puzzles in this game can be compared to those found in The 7th Guest. The Chinese Checkers puzzle in Shivers rivals many of the ones contained in Jewels of the Oracle. Since there is no real story line or deeper meaning behind all this, Jewels is not an adventure game but rather a collection of challenging puzzles in a gorgeous setting. If you enjoy this game, be sure to play its sequel Jewels II: The Ultimate Challenge.

Jigsaw Graham Nelson [top]

This is the finest work of IF since Trinity, bar none. Curses is perhaps the most "literate" work of IF to come along in years. You are an aristocrat who is preparing to go on vacation in Paris. All you want to do is find one lousy tourist map which you KNOW is in the attic somewhere, and then you're off. Sounds easy, right? As the story unfolds, you'll find yourself immersed in one hell of an adventure that spans both place and time. You'll also find numerous puzzles ranging from simple (not many of those) to difficult (lots) and hair-tearingly frustrating, spread across the years from ancient Egypt to the present. And you will find literary allusions, references to historical events and legends, and a family history that literally meanders all over the map, but remains centered about the ancestral Meldrew Hall in England... Mercifully, Curses manages to be original in its puzzles, which will depend in large part on the history that you can uncover with the help of a few references (some of which are even included in the game). Clues to these puzzles can come from surprising sources, that appear at first to be unrelated. The game's on-line hint system has been personified in the form of supernatural agencies--alas, the hints present are rather cryptic, and if you can't figure out a puzzle from the hint, there won't be any more hints. These agencies also may not recognize some puzzles you want to ask about, which can be frustrating. Release 12 of the game expands its map and puzzles in many ways over previous versions, which makes this game even tougher and more frustrating. If you can beat Curses single-handedly on this version, then you may accredit yourself a most accomplished gamer. If not... Don't feel bad, almost everyone else had to ask for help. Overall, Curses is a modern masterpiece in IF that is a must play for anyone interested in the genre, especially IF experts. Remember: examine everything, twice!

Johnny Mnemonic: The Interactive Action Movie CineACTIVE / Sony Imagesoft [top]

The interactive movie concept was taken a stage further by this game, which completely dispenses with a visible interface. All you will see and experience is the storyline and its realisation, taking in 2500 scenes inspired by William Gibson's short story more than the Keanu Reeves movie adaptation. There are puzzles to solve, mazes to clear, and challenge at every turn. There's 2 hours of footage, 2,500 scenes, 65,000 frames, offering 30 hours of game play. You're a 21st century courier delivering 320 gigabytes of stolen data wet-wired directly to your brain. Except you have no way of getting the data out of your head. Seems the download code is lost. Jump into a corrupt cyberpunk world to find the download code before the Yakuza mob downloads you. Playing the game is a lot like watching the movie, only you plsy Christopher Russell Gartin, not Keanu, and every so often the game prompts you for a decision that affects the course of the plot. For example, in the opening scene you can fight or run. Fights are also interactive - you watch both combatants circle each other. A window of opportunity displays your opponent preparing to throw a punch or a kick, and you tell your character to do the same. Choose the right move and you see a clip of your character connecting a nasty blow. Screw up and Johnny or Jane eat all kinds of leather. Windows of opportunity pop up every two or three minutes, making Johnny Mnemonic one of the livelier interactive dramas around.

Journeyman Project 2: Buried In Time Presto Studios / Sanctuary Woods [top]

The second game of the Journeyman Project series finds you traveling through time to clear yourself of a false accusation of altering history. Your future self materializes before you, tells you you've been framed for changing the past and gives you a time travel suit before being arrested by other members of the Temporal Security Agency. Now you must warp back to a variety of time periods and collect the evidence that proves your innocence. The Jumpsuit or the Time Displacement Unit fits like a skin tight spaceship, with an onboard computer, extendable with biochip enhancements, a null space pocket (for infinite inventory), limited life support, and an invisibility cloak to hide you from the locals. With this suit, you travel to the space laboratory of Dr. Farnstein, a future genius who has created advanced artificial intelligence. There you pick up Arthur, an artificial intelligence being who can live in your suit’s computer biochip. Along your journey through time, Arthur provides you with a wealth of historical information as well as many droll insights. Other destinations you visit include Chateau Gaillard (King Richard’s castle in France), Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop, and Chichen Itza (a classical Mayan city). Once you have assembled all the evidence, you must pursue the culprits to an alien world to retrieve the artifacts. You then present the evidence, acquit your future self, and bring the true culprits to justice.

Jungle Book: The Legend of Mowgli Hollywood Interactive Digital Entertainment [top]

If you want to explore the literary magic of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle book, this software provides kids with a narrated line-by-line text. An animated version of Mowgli, the jungle boy raised by wolves, dances in the opening screen - very similar to the dancing characters in the Living Book series. Kids can also read the facts on author Rudyard Kipling and guide their way through a photo tour of India, most of this information is available on CD-ROM encyclopedias. A Top Banana game features a slingshot, equipped with a banana. Kids use their mouse to aim the banana-powered slingshot at hungry jungle monkeys who swing from tree to tree. When their aim is on target, a screen message proclaims "You are Top Banana". In the New Adventures of Mowgli section, kids can select from a 3-part screen, some of which features live action digital video. Clicking on the moving feet icons and you can learn some facts about jungle animals on split-screen videos. There is a section of the game that is something of an interactive movie in that you can guide Mowgli as he travels through the jungle and find a cave which is the home of a villain that is so evil we never learn his name. The whole segment lacks speech and a story, and is mostly just a glorified tour of the jungle and its animals. Even so, it is an interactive movie since it is possible for Mowgli to get killed when he faces the villain which results in a bad ending for his adventure.

Kajko i Kokosz [PL] Seven Stars Multimedia [top]

A pair of inseparable friends - smart, short, yet brave Kajko and his buddy, big, bald, fat, strong & gluttonous Kokosz - must face again the notorious Zbojcerze (Rogueknights) and their evil plot set to conquer the peaceful village of Mirmilowo. The early medieval setting and fantasy themes resemble "Asterix & Obelix". Kajko i Kokosz is a classic point & click adventure game, based on a popular Polish comic book series featuring the same characters. You can switch between the two characters at will, and some actions have to be done with a specific character. The controls are pretty simple - to interact with the environment, you just have to click. You have a limited space in your inventory, but you can take an object from your inventory and drop it anywhere at any time. The game graphics feature original artwork created by the creator of the series, Janusz Christa, thus retaining the "look & feel" of the comic books. Initially released on Floppy Disks, a Windows CD version was released in 1998.

Lethe Flow Phoenix Dan Shiovitz [top]
One of the most atmospheric and well-written IF ever released, this is a great game that is full of mystical overtones, dream-like surrealism, and several nice plot twists. The game begins on one Halloween night, casting you as a solo camper who accidentally pitched yourself over a cliff while investigating strange noises during your nocturnal contemplation. When you awaken, you find yourself in a stranger a strange land, left alone to find out why you are here and how you can return. The strength of it is its the excellent prose, which is highlighted in the many lengthy, non-interactive cut scenes that are very poetic and beautiful. It recalls a later IF classic Sunset over Savannah, both in the strong writing and the focus on the protagonist’s internal conflicts—you will have to come to terms with your past in the game. The puzzles in general are fair, I would say just about average for an IF. The game starts with a somewhat annoying find-something-to-eat-before-you-die puzzle, but it gets better from there. There are plenty of hints in the game, so even trial-and-error puzzles can be solved after a few tries. The game is a bit too short, but it most likely feels that way because I was so engrossed in the game that I played it through the first time. (Dan actually thought it was a bit too long for the 2-hour limit of the 1995 IF Competition, which was why he didn’t enter the game that year). Although the ending leaves some loose ends unexplained, in the game’s context it was probably better than alternatives. Overall, if you like a short-to-medium, surrealistic/fantasy IF in which the prose flows eloquently and evocatively, this is a must-have.

Little Big Adventure / Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure Adeline Software International / Electronic Arts [top]

Without a doubt two of the most unique and revolutionary games ever, Little Big Adventure 1 and 2 are charming isometric SVGA adventures that deftly weave action, RPG (spellcasting), and traditional adventure into a wholly engrossing gaming experience. Intuitive interface, vibrant graphics, and wonderful and unique plots make them a worthy successor to Alone in The Dark, designed by the same team. The games are almost perfect, except that late-game combat sequences are a tad too difficult and will frustrate adventure gamers who are reflexes-impaired. The game was initially released in a CD-ROM version and sometime later in a floppy disk version; the CD-ROM version featured full motion video, music and speech whereas the floppy disk version has MIDI music files and still images to replace the videos. In Oct/2015 an Enhanced Edition was released with brand new features. New gameplay: adjustable throwing and jumping distance (visible trajectory), simplified sections, etc. Streamlined, easy-to-use interface with enhanced graphics specially redesign for this version. Tutorials at the start of the game. Dynamic ON/OFF hint system. Zoom feature to provide an overview of the scenes. Automatic save system, with return to the last checkpoint when you lose a life. 5 languages available: English, French, German, (voices and text) - Italian and Spanish (text only, voices in English). Full controller support.

Lost City of Atlantis, The Noch Software Inc. [top]

This is a platform game where you control Raghim - a Phoenician merchant whose strength and valor were matched by an overpowering desire to travel far and wide. He buys an old map at a bazaar and takes on a voyage. The ship goes down in a storm and Raghim is washed ashore at a long lost land. Now with this totally nude male character (yes guys I'm afraid so / exciting, ey girls?), you must get through the labyrinths of Greece, Egypt and finally Atlantis, slaying the monsters in your path and seek out pearls to buy weapons to do so. The journey goes as much over water as below it, as Raghim can walk, run, jump, climb, swim and dive. You must avoid traps and watch out so that you don't run out of oxygen while under water. To procede to the next level you must find all the hidden Crystals (each level contains seven Crystals) and give them to a wizard who guards the exit to the next level. Greece, Egypt and Atlantis each have four sub levels, so the game has a total of 12. Nearly all the enemies are mythical creatures like Minotaurs, Harpies, Giant Scorpions and such (depending on which world you are in) and require different weapons and tricks to kill off. There are nine different weapons in total, and Raghim can have up to three in each world. These can be bought at small temples found in rooms both over and under the sea. Levels are challenging and long so "BEGINNER" is hard enough, but for those who make it through without many scratches the game offers a tougher "MASTER" mode.

Lost Eden Cryo Interactive Entertainment / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Paleontologists and scientists alike have researched the existence of the dinosaurs. From time to time, it has been theorized and speculated about what would have happened if man and dinosaur had co-existed on the earth. Lost Eden, an ambitious title from Cryo Interactive, sets out to put this question to rest and to theorize on why the dinosaurs disappeared. It is an age of unrest and the alliance between humans and dinosaurs is weakening due to an evil dinosaur that is set on ruling the earth. Adam of Mo, a human, meets with his father and finds out that he has the rare ability to unite the humans and dinosaurs. Adam, along with two dinosaur friends, is sent on a mission to protect the human/dinosaur alliance. Lost Eden is beautifully designed and the cutscenes and 3-D polygonal graphics were way ahead of their time. On the other hand, the game suffers from the typical Cryo pitfalls. While great graphics and a beautiful trance-style soundtrack do abound, the game is overcome with repetitive puzzles, repetitive dialogue, and horrific voiceovers. The game is fairly short and is easy to complete within a few hours, making it a great title for amateur adventure fans. On a good note, the game still holds up and has more than just a "curio" appeal. If you are open minded and don't mind a bit of easy adventuring, or are just looking for something a bit different from the norm, give this unique and stylish adventure a try.

Lost Mind Of Dr. Brain, The Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

This game is the third in the Dr. Brain series. Solve logic, math, and other puzzling conundrums designed to stress your brain. The game includes new puzzles, but you can play any one at any time, unlike previous versions, where you had to beat some puzzles before you could go to the next puzzle. There's hundreds of word and logic puzzles, memory and strategy games, problem-solving adventures, visualization and musical challenges - each at three levels of difficulty. The story is hokey but appealing: Dr. Brain has inadvertently transferred his mind into Rathbone, his laboratory rat. To reverse the brain drain - and win the game -players have to complete brain teasers in 10 different puzzle areas. In the Music Region, for example, kids have to unscramble mixed-up musical measures, flipping measures horizontally and vertically at the Expert and Genius levels of play. (For parents, it's a pleasure to hear substantial passages from classical composers in this musical memory game.) In the Motor Programming game, kids select a series of commands - and learn the rudiments of programming in the process - in order to maneuver around a maze.

Louis Cat Orze: The Mystery Of The Queen's Necklace Berkshire Multimedia Group / IVI Publishing [top]

This is a CD-ROM history lesson cleverly designed as a mystery. The Queen's necklace has been stolen, and you, the trusty investigator, have a short six days to track down the thief. The Royal Palace at Versailles is the scene of the crime. Aided by the mischievous Louis Cat Orze, a feline of royal descent if there ever was one, you must explore the palace and the surrounding countryside, listen in on conversations, and occasionally pick a pocket. Louis Cat Orze isn't a free ride, though-fees must be paid, palms greased, and while you begin the game with a certain amount of livres, you have to investigate thoroughly and learn about the era in order to earn more. Or you can try your hand at the Palace Games to increase (or decrease) your purse. Once you think you know the identity of the thief, you can present your accusation to the king - if you can afford to see him, and if you haven't been thrown into the Bastille! It has its share of pitfalls; some of these you learn by doing, and some are buried in the manual (read it completely). You'll need to listen carefully to understand what's going on, for what people say can lead you in different directions - some are plausible dead ends, but some will be of real value. Learning about the 17th century is the only way you'll win. The drawings are somewhat cartoonish and the animation is minimal. Secret passages, exchanges of money in the Orangerie, the clink of gold coins in the Grand Apartment and gossip in the Hall of Mirrors all play an important part in this riveting mystery. You only have six days to solve the mystery. The game includes 75 biographies of people who lived during this period. A mesmerizing soundtrack is performed by a full chamber orchestra.

Madness Of Roland, The Hyperbole Studios [top]

Billed as "the world's first interactive multimedia novel," this brilliantly fulfills the latter half of its claim (i.e. “multimedia novel”) while dismally failing the first (i.e. “interactive”). It's an art film whose commercial value arises from the novelty of the medium. Based on the legend of the Paladin Roland, a knight in the service of Charlemagne, the tale of Madness of Roland is told from multiple points of view which you can select at will. Each character tells their own, often contradictory, version of the story. Roland uses text, digital color paintings, animation, QuickTime video, professional "radio theatre" narration, hypertextual links and a complete original soundtrack to transport you to the world of Charlemagne's France. The story and the way it is told is undoubtedly the best thing. Roach's prose is excellent; at times ostentatious, but not overdone. There are plenty of multimedia tidbits that enliven the story, including sounds, movie clips, and animations. Voice-acting, in contrast to most "multimedia adventure games," is excellent; voice actors who played Roland and King Charlemagne are especially commendable. At any time, you can "read" the story from any of the four character's perspective, each of whom naturally has his/her own version of what really happened – similar to Kurosawa's critically acclaimed Rashomon. There are plenty of options that take advantage of CD-ROM medium, such as hyperlinked words that you can click on to bring up a glossary, definitions, or anecdotes. In a few cases, clicking on the hyperlinked text triggers some additional imagery. You can bookmark the text on any screen to return to the story at a later date. The story is well-paced, with enough interesting twists and turns will hold your interest to the very end, whether or not you are familiar with medieval France. Be warned that it is not your standard fantasy/Arthurian story – although it has plenty of violence, sex, and superstition, it would never be mistaken for a voyeuristic "B" movie. By the time you finish "reading" it, you will have no doubt in your mind that Greg Roach has a way with both words and visual presentation. The CD-ROM is a true work of art. It is, however, definitely not a good "game," so anyone looking for a chance to influence Roland's life will be sorely disappointed. As one of the best electronic multimedia books ever made, though, it's well worth the experience. Since you can "see" the story from different characters' perspectives, the rereadability is very high as well.

This is another short-but-sweet game that features VERY clever mathematical and logic puzzles (you'd be amazed at how the various text-based graphics are created in this game). The premise is simple: you must solve the various puzzles and games set before you in a toyshop to select the perfect present for your niece. Puzzles are difficult but fair, although the final combination puzzle is IMHO impossible to solve except for astute mathematicians or logic puzzle enthusiasts. The Magic Toyshop also features some of the best ASCII puzzles ever seen in an IF.

Majestic Part 1: Alien Encounter Istvan Pely Productions / Piranha Interactive [top]

Majestic is a first-person, point-and-click adventure. It has to run in 256 colors; however, most of the movements are fully animated, as opposed to slide show. There are music and sound effects, but no spoken dialog - just subtitles. The game has a very good sense of story. The Majestic is a luxury cruiser that has had a terrible mishap, and you have been dispatched to figure out what the heck went wrong. This is a classic, irresistible setup for and adventure game: an abandoned space ship to explore. The events in Majestic precede the events in Zero Critical (by the same developer), and although not a true sequel, Zero Critical certainly grafts events onto the finale in Majestic. Syn Factor (also released as Symbiocom) came in between the two in terms of production. It is less a sequel to Majestic than is Zero Critical, but it is clearly related to both. So whilst they could not be said to be a trilogy, they are enough alike to be a series of sorts, and if you like one you will probably enjoy the lot. The game while good is quite short and can be finished in 4-6 hours by a typical adventure game fan.

This adventure game, the first ever released by Her Interactive (who later did the Nancy Drew games), lets you take on the life of a teenage co-ed in her junior year at Madison High. In this role, you'll do everything a girl of this age does in her daily life at home, school and work - from deciding what to wear each day to going to work after school. Talk with friends in person and on the phone, attend classes, study, do homework, shop for clothes at the mall and go out on dates. You choose one of two characters to play. Besides your 6 closest friends, there are 20 other characters to meet during the course of the game - including prospective boyfriends. The scenarios are presented by way of video clips. Conversations come about by selecting one of several provided replies. There are various types of mini-games to solve within the game including variations of Concentration and Tetris as well as a shooting accuracy game and a picture puzzle. The game comes on 6 CD-Roms: 1 for the main game, 4 for the main boyfriends and a bonus music CD. An optional complete internet access package is included on the discs. The PC version box also contains some makeup and tips on how to apply it, and a pink ribbon promoting Breast Cancer Awareness.

Menateus Rauser Advertainment GmbH / Siemens Nixdorf [top]

Menateus is a 3D Adventure game that was distributed to promote the millennium world exhibition Expo 2000 in Hannover. It was developed by Rauser Advertainment (a popular German advertisement game developer back in the days) in collaboration with Siemens. The game does not really focus on puzzles, but on conveying the message of the exhibition, "Mankind, Nature, and Technology." You learn that you have been chosen to save the future of mankind, as otherwise they will destroy themselves through their indifference towards nature and each other. You enter a 3D representation of the exhibition in the year 2000, and can enter various buildings. Each building contains a computer which allows you to enter a different Virtual Reality where you have to complete a specific task related to the overall plot. I liked the game for its interesting scenarios and unique design, and also because of its soundtrack. The soundtrack is the earliest video game music work of Fabian Del Priore!

Mirage Padmini Multimedia / Atlantis Interactive [top]

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

The year is 2360. Androids killed all the humanity on planet Earth and now they plan to destroy all the vegetation, too, using an element called Cybertrone.

This civilization also developed a counter-device against Cybertrone, called Sodomgomorhator. This device is located on the second moon of the planet Ascus, called Quadam. The scientists sent out the best men to retrieve the device, but they soon lost contact with the team. Several weeks later they send their last ship with only person on board, the explorer David, who is the last chance for Earth. Does he survive the hostile environment of the moon, find the lost expedition and successfully retrieve the artifact?

This cartoon adventure is based on Twentieth Century Fox's animated movie Once Upon a Forest. Though the movie flopped in its theatrical release, the ecological message in the story has appealed to many who later saw it on video release.

Will the trio of furlings win a race against time to save their sick friend?

Operation: Weather Disaster: Team Extreme Human Code, Inc. / Discovery Channel [top]

A disgruntled TV weatherman, bored with the stable weather conditions of his work place, changes the world climate in radical ways. A disaster task force called Team Xtreme is called to restore normal conditions to all places in Earth and fight the evil madman. This is an educational point-and-click adventure similar to Myst, one of its many clones that came out at that time. A typical full-motion video game of the nineties, it features 360º horizontal panning of some locations and easy puzzles for its target audience (mostly comprised of children). Published and produced by the computer game branch of the documentary channel Discovery, the focus is obviously on didactic elements: a small scientific facts database is integrated as a button to the interface, and can be accessed at any moment in the game. It plays animations and videos of hurricanes and other weather phenomena. It also contains clues to the solution of some of the puzzles. In an effort to further dispel any attempt at any meaningful amount of challenge, a hint button is provided on the interface at the bottom, placed between the inventory and the volume control and a compass. Gameplay is the standard fare of this type of game: instead of Myst's focus on mechanical puzzles, most are inventory-based. There are some short arcade sequences that need to be completed to advance the game.

Orion Conspiracy, The Divide By Zero / Domark Software [top]

Divide by Zero's third adventure release is an uneven space opera that has interesting puzzles and plot - marred by a huge amount of gratuitous violence and prafanity that may turn many players off. Played in the third person through an extremely linear path, Orion's plot revolves around your character's investigation of the death of his son at a research station in deep space. Other, more farfetched (or derivative) plot elements come into play later in the game. Much of the backstory is provided in a nifty little graphic novel packaged with the game, entitled "Devlin's Story". Other information, as well as comprehensive installation notes, are included in a well-presented game manual. The point-and-click user interface performs satisfactorily, with hotspots identified on the screen and possible object interactions displayed with the right mouse button. This "giveaway" of information on how you can act upon objects may make the game puzzles rather predictable and easy. On the other hand, you may find yourself spending the majority of gameplay merely moving your character from one station destination to another - often a very time-consuming process since no "zip" mode or shortcuts have been provided and access points seem arbitrarily restricted from each other. We'll suspend our disbelief about the amount of gravity on a 10-acre asteroid. Despite some good puzzles, the game is chock-full of completely gratuitous profanity. If you're offended by that or simply don't see it as adding anything to the atmosphere of an adventure game, then you might want to avoid it altogether. There are also a few mildly-graphic scenes of animated violence, which, together with the language, seriously hampers what enjoyment you can get out of it.

Panic In The Park Imagination Pilots, Inc. / Warner Interactive [top]

Can Jamie, the beautiful heir to Skyview Park, keep her evil identical twin sister Janie from turning their father's dream into a parking lot? Can you, as a dashing reporter, help Jamie find the deed that will establish her claim to Skyview? Will you be able to unmask the thief responsible for swiping and hiding the deed? And will you be able to do it all in just one night? Panic is a combination of FMV (1.6+ GB worth), Myst-style slide show, arcade games, a few twiddle puzzles and a logic puzzle. As is standard in the FMV games of the period, players click from one slide to the next and are surprised now and then by a grainy .AVI file. The graphics, while dated, hold up quite well for a game published in 1995. And though the acting is frequently broad, especially among the concession operators, the performances are appropriate and specific given the material. It's up to you to help the good twin find the park's missing deed by morning in order to save it from destruction. Bizarre park employees, a variety of engaging games and puzzles with increasing skill level, and more than 200 different outcomes make it an ever-changing adventure with each new play. State-of-the-art computer animation, photo-realistic 3-D environments and full-screen video performances by over 30 different characters make it a cinematic-quality adventure like no other.

Paparazzi! Tales of Tinseltown Museworthy, Inc. / Activision Publishing, Inc. [top]

The object of the game is to take photos of 24 celebrities in Tinseltown, in some sort of compromising position. The photos can (but do not have to be) sold to various publications, ranging from sleazy tabloids to well-respected magazines. Each "day" of game time has a "day" and a "night" period. Each period gives you the chance to go to two different places in order to take photos. There are less than 14 total days, so you have to take photos on many of your trips out in order to complete your assignment. This is complicated by the fact that some of the celebrities are only in certain places at certain times on certain days. If you miss the right place and time, you miss the photo. Adding to the complication is the fact that "exactly" the right photo must be taken of the celebrity in order to count. You may shoot up to two photos at each location you visit, which makes your film very precious. To win this game, you must get into the following routine and follow it carefully for each day of game play: 1. Watch all programs on all channels of the TV, once every day and once every night (they do change). Some of the programs provide hints as to where the celebrities will be, and when. If you miss the hint, you'll miss the photo opportunity. 2. Check your messages, once every day and once every night (they do change). The phone calls sometimes include tips to finding a celebrity, advice on game play, etc. 3. When you have nothing else to do, go to Cheever's Camera Shop during the day and to the Blue Fug at night. These places abound with hints, tips, etc. Note that you also have to watch your reputation. If it gets too bad, people won't be friendly with you, won't let you in places, etc. Your reputation can be negatively affected by selling your photos at all in some cases, and by selling them to sleazier publications who misuse them. You can improve your reputation by selling certain photos to certain publications, or by selling them to the FIB as evidence.

Peter Gabriel's Secret World: Xplora 1 Real World Multimedia / Interplay [top]

This is a multimedia piece by Peter Gabriel. It has a scavenger hunt theme throughout the game, and when certain pieces are found, it unlocks more sections of the CD. There is a mixing room and videos of concert backstages. To progress through the CD, you have to solve puzzles with sliding tiles. The graphics are of sky, earth, trees and various other nature scenes, keeping with the CDs conservation theme. There is a section on world instruments. You can see and listen to them once you unlock that room. Gabriel's disc comes on like a genteel tract. There are no arrows or messages to guide you (that would be too Western, I guess). Instead, you poke around and click into "rooms" reflecting aspects of the pop star's career. Hear cuts from his albums, sample the acts from his Real World label, watch footage of the WOMAD Festival, or learn more about Amnesty International.

Phantasmagoria, Roberta Williams' Sierra On-Line Inc. [top]

Inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King, Roberta Williams blended the elements of modern fiction with the best of nineteenth century literature to create Phantasmagoria. After trading their noisy Boston condo for a bizarre mansion on a small island along the New England coastline, Adrienne and Donald Gordon are slowly enveloped in a mystery of boundless, supernatural proportions. What is the secret that is locked inside this place, that infects this house? There is the previous owner, a famous illusionist who died inside its walls a hundred years ago. What kind of magic was he really into? What happened to the many wives who shared his shadowy world? Didn't he have a couple of children, a little boy and girl? As you take on the role of Adrienne, you are doomed to become the center of attraction for this horrifying entity. This haunting tale of a terrifying world of isolation, illusion, and insanity gave birth to the exciting new genre of interactive horror as never seen before, for it was most frighteningly believable adventure game ever created. A mega seven CD game, it was Roberta's largest project by far. It was also her first game that incorporated real life actors. In fact, the feature-film actors were captured on the most film footage ever included in any game up to that time. Phantasmagoria is mainly aimed as an adult game due to the graphic nature of the violence and the several explicit adult scenes. However, the game does have a censored mode that blocks such graphic and/or explicit scenes for the younger audience. It was quite controversial and banned in places like Australia. Made during the height of the "interactive movie" boom in the computer game industry, Phantasmagoria is notable for being one of the first and only adventure games to use a human being as an on-screen avatar. Actress Victoria Morsell spent months in front of a blue screen filming the hundreds of actions players could direct her character to perform.

Pippi Ahead Multimedia AB [top]

Pippi Longstocking is a well-known fictional character in northern Europe. She is a little girl that never grows up and lives with no adults in Villa Villekulla, an abandoned house, with a horse (with no name) and a monkey, Mr. Nilsson. She says her mother is in heaven and her father is king of a pacific island. But who really knows ? The original stories, written by Astrid Lindgren since 1945, were adapted into films and television series. Here, is a computerized version where children will discover her little world. First, they'll have to enter Villa Villekulla, by the door, of course. Players will explore the rooms in the Villa (hall, kitchen, bureau, bedroom, and attic) and solve different types of puzzles (i.e. jigsaw, memory). There's also a book activity where children can choose among three books and start these stories with screen texts that can be turned on or off. Texts are available in twelve (say, eleven because of British/American english) different languages.

Planetfall 2: Floyd's Next Thing (cancelled) Infocom / Activision [top]

This is a cancelled off-beat comedy sci-fi sequel to Infocom's classic text adventure. It was to be a CD-Rom title that featured a stellar production of superbly rendederd 3-D worlds and a cast of fifteen Hollywood actors. With Steve Meretzky (designer of the original Planetfall) as the major force behind this product, a refined story line by Star Trek: The Next Generation screenwriters, and Floyd the charismatic robot as your quirky guide. A non - interactive demo of Planetfall 2 was included in the compilation CD Activision Power Hits: BattleTech. A very early prototype that's barely playable exists, though it does provide an interesting look at how the game would have played with a realtime 3D engine. The prototype does introduce a puzzle and features voice acting as well as a pretty cool soundtrack tune. Judging by the puzzle, you were able to give orders to your robot companions similarly to how Infocom's classic text adventures worked. The prototype can be difficult to execute - you can run this game on a pre-made Windows 95 VMWare machine with specific display drivers. The game has to be run in full-screen as otherwise graphics look completely corrupt in window mode. When you launch the game, you are given the option to load one of three .SCP files (a seemingly proprietary level format), although only PAXTONRM.SCP works correctly; the rest will crash the loader. VMWare is problematic for playing this prototype because it doesn't give you the option to limit the CPU cycles. It's recommended using a tool like CPU Killer compatible with Windows 95, or give Win95 on DOSBox a shot. Interestingly, this ISO image has loads of assets in easily readable BMP format, many of which aren't seen in the prototype. A sad coda to Infocom's enduring legacy; we can only imagine what the final game would have been like.

Prisoner Of Ice Chaosium Inc. / Infogrames [top]

Created by I-Motion (Infogrames' short-lived label), Prisoner of Ice is the sequel of sorts to Shadow of The Comet that unfortunately doesn't live up to its predecessor despite sporting better graphics and a more expansive plot. Another game in Infogrames' line of H. P. Lovecraft inspired game started by Alone In the Dark, Prisoner of Ice puts you in the role of Lt. Ryan, an American agent stationed aboard the submarine H.M.S. Victoria on a rescue mission to the Antarctic. The Victoria picks up two mysterious crates during the course of the rescue. Before you know it the Captain is eaten alive by the cargo, a horrific monster with whom you are trapped aboard the submarine. And that's just the start of your problems. It features a very simplified version of the classic adventure game interface, where you can left click with the cursor to operate an object or right click to look at it. The program won't let you do anything with these objects, other than the few appropriate actions needed to advance the game. The plot of Prisoner of Ice is one of the best ever seen in a horror adventure, and it is well-paced. When it moves along smoothly, it is a lot of fun to play. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen often enough, and even with a lot of frustrating pixel-hunting, the game is over way too soon. Worth a try for horror fans, but don't expect the gripping experience that Shadow of the Comet offers.

Released at the height of FMV/interactive movie craze, Psychic Detective did succeed in avoiding the usual pitfalls of FMV with a unique premise: as psychic Eric Fox, you are able to enter any character's head and experience the world from his / her point of view (similar to The Space Bar). Gameplay is limited to being in the right place at the right time, but the great number of characters and locations make for almost limitless paths you can follow and high replayability. An interesting game that might have worked with less cryptic plot and better final puzzle that doesn't rely on seemingly random encounters.

Puppet Motel, Laurie Anderson's Voyager [top]

This is a melange of monologues, videos, art-jokes and interactive environments. Anderson pushes this new medium beyond the stage of technology demo, glorified PR kit or kiddie toy. She has created a freestanding work of art - one that captures the soul of a blue machine. The disk begins with a ghostly faced three-prong outlet that glows and howls into the darkness. Serving as the motel's lobby is "The Hall of Time," a vanishing-perspective cosmic corridor with icons parading across its walls, beckoning you into the motel's 33 symbol-crowded rooms. A puppet Anderson alter-ego who haunts the Green Room serves as an infrequent guide. Anderson has always turned the language of technology back upon itself and into the shape of art. (One room is a gallery of exotic musical instruments from her performance-art career, like the "tape bow violin.") Clocks are everywhere, clicking off the time with clipped answering-machine-voice announcements. Telephone handsets float upright on rigid cords, like tall palms; TV sets flash static; airplanes turn into translucent kaleidoscopes. The mouse-pointer becomes an ice-skate, a Ouija-board pointer, an eraser or a floating star. At one point Anderson steps forward from a maze of chairs and, waving a pair of flashlights like a runway attendant, recites the legend of Plato's Cave - whose prisoners are doomed never to see the true images of things but only to glimpse their fleeting shadows. If that's our lot, Anderson implies, no wonder even the proudest products of our invention are tinged with regret. In one room, Anderson conducts a lengthy palm-reading interrogation of her listener that's all question and no response; it concludes with a taunting, "Had enough?" In another, she presents "The Amazing Ouija Floor Board" - a device that invites you to ask it questions and then seems to go happily to sleep. The game adopts a variety of interactive strategies; it will record your voice and accept typed messages, and if you're on the Internet you can download new Anderson videos. But its chief form of interactivity is the only one that really counts: It gives you glimpses of how the world looks through an artist's eyes.

Reflux Issues 1-3: "The Becoming", "The Threshold" Inverse Inc [top]


Billing itself as "the world's first live-action graphic novel," Reflux: Issue.01 - "The Becoming" was the first in a series of planned quarterly releases from Inverse Ink (though only three were released). Through 20 pages of interactive comic book action, you follow the adventures of Flux, a morphing superhero tapped into a cyber-world known as "the verse" through his computer. Each panel comes to life in some way or another as you click to each one. They all feature sound, and many others include animations or live action from Asian kung-fu movies previously unseen in America. Folders at the bottom of the screen add depth to the plot, which can be experienced from the perspective of Flux, his computer IO or fiendish mastermind Roark. This particular issue sets the stage for things to come. After being framed for the murder of his best friend, Frank Corwin has been running from the law, his only source of income coming from his mercenary heroics in the verse, where he is known as Flux. He has the ability to assume any form programmed into IO and is assisted by a couple of friends, their latest job being to infiltrate a base in Hong Kong GUI for a company called WorldPerfect. But as the story moves along, things reveal themselves to be more than just a simple covert mission. Will Flux and his team escape alive?

Robot City Brooklyn Multimedia / Byron Preiss Multimedia [top]

Based on Isaac Asimov's Robot novels, this is a sci-fi adevnture. Far from the 50 Spacer Worlds, your survival pod crashes on a planet where a secret experiment is taking shape. Robot City, an entire city built and ruled by robots. Without humans to command and supervise them, these robots have evolved their own ways of doing things. Their ideas of how to obey the Three Laws of Robotics might be a little different from yours. You soon learn that Robot City is out of control, that the only human who might know why has been murdered, and that you are the prime suspect. The objective of Robot City is to search for clues that will solve the murder and provide evidence to prove your innocence. During your visit to Robot City you are expected to unlock the hidden knowledge of Robot City's mysterious human creator. These robots are entertaining as they have all the characteristics of humans in that they can change their minds, can be fooled, be very stubborn, and their logic is not always based on common sense. The most unusual thing about Robot City, besides the fact that only robots live there, is the way that the streets and buildings rearrange themselves as you move around. You must always remember the Three Laws of Robotics in order to save yourself and Robot City, and thus shape the future of human- kind and robot-kind. Don't know them you say? Just ask a robot!

Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge Second Vision / GTE Entertainment [top]

One of the many early/mid-90s music-based Myst-like point-and-click pseudo-adventures. Wander around the Voodoo Lounge, meet the Rolling Stones (and others) in mysterious circumstances, find and solve mysteries, and more. Contains tons of RS footage, several full-length songs, and lots of hidden surprises for RS fans. You navigate through rooms in a swankily designed fantasy mansion, clicking around to discover hidden concert footage, interviews, and mixing boards that let you control which song plays in which room. Voodoo Lounge indicates only how superficial the Stones have become. The rooms are full of glam types, few of whom do anything when clicked on. When you stumble on an audio or video interview with Keith or Mick, it's either unintelligible or trite. You can find lyrics in the bathrooms, but don't expect to hear music while you read them. Oh, and you'd better like the tepid songs from 1994's Voodoo Lounge album, because there's no other Stones music here. However, just when you've written this disc off as a prime example of new-media cluelessness, you may find yourself in the mansion's VIP room. The walls are covered with photos and information about blues, country, and R&B greats, and there's a screen showing rare footage of the artists whose music the Stones used as building blocks throughout their career. Here at last, in a grainy black-and-white clip of Howlin' Wolf snarling through ''Dust My Broom,'' is the sense of genuine danger the Stones once manufactured on their own. Too bad you have to endure a lounge act to get there.

Sea Legends Mir Dialogue / Ocean of America, Inc. [top]

Sea Legends is a successor to famous Sid Meier's Pirates! series. As Richard Gray, a young captain, you have to master ship navigation, sword fighting, trading, sea and land warfare and crew recruiting in order to progress in what begins as a simple story but becomes quite complicated : the plot involves many characters and there are a few twists and turns. This games features many different weapons (cannons as well as rifles and swords) and goods to trade. Managing your ships is much more complex than in Pirates! but the interface is nice and clear. The colonies buildings include a tavern, a governor house, an armory but also a church, which allows you to save your game. One of the most important things in this game is sea warfare. Sea Legends incorporates a 3D voxel engine which was quite impressive for the time and makes combats very realistic (although rather difficult to control). Globally, Sea Legends really is Pirates! with more options, 3D sea combats and a more detailed story.

Wacek and Andzia, a pair of school friends, are told by an old Professor that a flying saucer crashed somewhere on Earth. Poor little alien didn't make it on a sharp interstellar turn... The player guides the two kids trying to find him and help him out. The graphics and gameplay style of this kid-friendly adventure game are similar to Sołtys, but this time the player controls two characters at once, as in Kajko i Kokosz. Conversations are automatic, and all lines are spoken. The children have only 4 inventory slots each and certain items should be picked up with the right person (e.g., the girl will refuse to touch dirty objects, the boy won't care about an alley cat). Progress is saved automatically on exit. In September/2014, the developers and ScummVM released the game free and translated to English.

Shannara Legend Entertainment Company [top]

Quest for Glory creators Corey & Lori Cole to work on a game based on Terry Brook's best-selling fantasy novels was a match made in heaven. You are Jak Ohmsford, son of Shea (the novels' hero), who must seek the sword of Shannara to vanquish evil warlock Brona. Puzzles are easy but fair, with the best ones being those that require help from your teammates. Gripping story and puzzles will keep you playing to the very end. Highly recommended, but be warned: puzzles closely follow the novel's storyline, so if you have read the books, you'll likely find the game far too easy. Overall, one of the best fantasy adventure games ever made, despite a predictable plot.

Surviving a dare by your friends to spend the night in a haunted museum is how the game begins, but it soon turns into a challenge of capturing the evil Ixupi, ghosts of South American legend, in pots scattered throughout the museum. The game is similar to Myst in many aspects in that it's an adventure game with a 1st-person slideshow-type presentation. Though unlike Myst, you have a life meter and the Iuzpi can steal life from it if you aren't careful. This game is full of interesting puzzles and a fascinating subplot soon develops, as well.

Silent Steel Tsunami Games [top]

Silent Steel is an all-video, interactive techno-thriller in which the user directs the story. Silent Steel casts you as captain of a nuclear submarine, on what is seemingly a routine peace-time patrol. As outside forces come into play, you find yourself in the midst of a life-and-death struggle to save not only your ship, but to unmask a traitor and reveal a sinister plot that could start a devastating global confrontation. The interactivity in Silent Steel appears in the form of a Action/Dialog Interface, which is presented every 15 to 30 seconds throughout the adventure. The three choices presented are actually integral parts of the script. You must select one of the options by clicking on the number (or the line of dialog), or using the numbers on the keyboard. The decisions made by the user determine which direction the story takes, up to the next Action/Dialog Interface box. As you continue through the game, you'll be presented with a multitude of crises which must be prioritized and dealt with appropriately. Depending on your decisions, you may reach several types of endings, from death to survival, and some humorous ones. It was re-released on DVD-ROM format in 1996 - the first interactive DVD movie ever made.

Simon The Sorcerer 2: The Lion, The Wizard, and the Wardrobe Headfirst Productions / Adventure Soft Publishing [top]

A sequel to Simon the Sorcerer, this second game in the series gives us more mis-adventures from our teenaged sorcerer (of some sort). Thrown into another dimension by his own wardrobe, Simon starts the heroic mission (of some sort) to find -another wardrobe that could get him back home. Equipped with his pointy sorcerer's hat (of some sort), he will also rescue the world (again) from the evil Sordid. It's a point-and-click adventure in a style similar to the first Simon game, only technologically improved. The two games in the series are of the most charming low-profile games ever that have captured many an adventurer's heart. It has difficult but fair puzzles, witty dialogues, and inimitable self-effacing humor and charm. A couple of things are new: the word commands (like 'talk to' and 'look at') have been replaced by Icons (a Magnifying Glass and a Mouth), and some scenes can be scrolled now, so make sure you always check the edges of every screen for new locations.

What can go wrong on a scout summer camp in a dull village? A lake and forest are nearby, as is an old army base, with an old rusty tank making up for a great playground... but now it's your job to rescue a fellow Girl Guide that got trapped inside the tank! The wacky graphical style and silly jokes were obviously inspired by Day of the Tentacle. The interface is simple and the default action (out of 6 basic commands) is usually highlighted. Just like with other point'n'click adventures from L.K. Avalon, the map allows jumping between locations, saving us tedious walking.

Skunny Special Edition Magic Touch, Atomic Entertainment / WizardWorks Software [top]

Skunny is a 32-bit DOS platform game featuring the anthropomorphic squirrel from six previous Copysoft games. Created with the new SuperHelix engine, this game features vastly improved control and graphics – with up to six layers of parralax scrolling – than the previous Skunny platformers, though many familiar sound effects remain. Skunny apparently found a map on one of his recent adventures and now must seek out treasure in six locations around the world. In addition to the health bar, Skunny now has a time meter, though how much time is actually left is unclear. Skunny must collect 100 keys in each level in order to go through the exit, and also gets an extra life when he collects 100 coins. Skunny can still jump on bad guys and be killed instantly by spikes, but most of the gameplay seems to revolve around jumping into cannon-like barrels and timing when to shoot out of them. There are 6 worlds in this game: Pirate's Gold, Desert Oasis, Oriental Fortunes, Enchanted Castle, Egyptian Artifacts, Artic Caverns. Only the first world is playable in the shareware version.

SkyBorg: Into the Vortex Fringe Multimedia / SkyBox International, Inc. [top]

This graphics adventure game from Skybox (the well-known trading card company), came with three packs (18 cards total) of Skyborg trading cards. In the game, you are the Skyborg. The objective is to find and rescue Dr. Barton from his kidnapper(s) and escape. Along the way you will visit nine varied worlds, each of which has things needed to complete the game. While wandering around, you will encounter 95 characters in the form of cards, some of which are on walls or posters; many of the character cards are just standing around for you to walk up and acquire tools, knowledge, and weapons from them, a very unrealistic and unbelievable concept. There are several times in the game when you have to battle a "sentinel" (robot) in an action sequence (it's easy to die here). Overall, the graphics in Skyborg are not particularly outstanding, although some of the animations are actually quite good (the equipment repair/morphing sequence is pretty cool). Most of the graphics are static pictures with scattered hot-spots. There is quite a bit of text to read, which comes across as notes found or electronic messages received by Skyborg; these latter messages are printed on the screen in tiny letters and are difficult to read without getting close to the monitor. The audio has its moments, although the voice of Skyborg's nemesis, the evil Morb, comes across as very amateurish and grating; the original soundtrack and music is provided by the band Primal Future.

So Far Andrew Plotkin [top]
This is a masterpiece of interactive storytelling. It is no surprise that Andrew Plotkin ("Zarf") is highly regarded as one of the best IF authors today. In contrast to his later game Spider and Web which focuses on good old puzzle-solving, So Far focuses on the story - a well-crafted love story full of surprises and symbolisms. Arguably an "art" piece which may not appeal to all, but definitely a successful experiment in that regard.

Space Quest 6: Roger Wilco in the Spinal Frontier Sierra On-Line [top]

This game was the last to be released in the Space Quest series. It ran on the last version of the SCI engine, SCI32. This allowed it to use Super VGA graphics with 256 colors at 640×480 resolution. Unlike other SCI games, it didn't have the interface in a pull down bar at the top of the screen, but instead used a "verb bar" window along the bottom of the screen, similar to LucasArts' SCUMM engine. The graphics style was also more cartoonish than in previous games. Gary Owens served as narrator once again. Having defeated the diabolical pukoid mutants in Space Quest V, Captain Roger Wilco triumphantly returns to StarCon headquarters - only to be court-martialed due to breaking StarCon regulations while saving the galaxy. He's busted down to Janitor Second Class, and assigned to the SCS DeepShip 86 (a parody of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), commanded by Commander Kielbasa, a Cowardly Lion look-alike whose name is taken from the polish sausage as well as being a play on the names of both the feline Kilrathi from the computer game series Wing Commander and of the character Mufasa from the animated motion picture The Lion King. His voice is a parody of Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The game's subtitle comes from the final portion, in which Roger has to undergo miniaturization and enter the body of a shipmate and romantic interest. Josh Mandel designed the majority of Space Quest 6 (with Scott Murphy on-board in a "creative consultant" capacity) but had to leave the project shortly before completion due to internal strife with Sierra. As an additional result of this change in designers, some puzzles - primarily in the latter stages of the game - were shoddily implemented due to lack of communication. Note that the level demo contains new content and puzzles not found in the retail game.

Star Trek: 25th Anniversary Interplay Productions, Inc. [top]

This tie-in actually missed the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek's TV debut by half a year (nearly 3 years in the case of the Amiga version), but it uses the original series' characters and settings. You start the game from the USS Enterprise, exploring space in search of adventure. When on board the ship you have full control over its destination, and any combat which arises from entering hostile space. You can communicate with other ships, and order repairs for the Enterprise when required. The adventuring bulk of the game comes in the form of many landing party missions, in which you beam down to the surface of a planet and explore. These play in point and click style, with the ideal goal being to complete them non-violently. However, your performance is rated based on how many extra discoveries and advances you make, and how you interact with the mysterious alien races, so there's value in exploring the surroundings (which look much like they do in the TV series) in further detail. One of the best Star Trek adventures ever produced, 25th Anniversary has it all: excellent plot (in each of the game's "episodes"), good puzzles (including multiple solutions that may not yield optimal 100% score), and great graphics. The only downside in this game is the combat, which is frustrating for non-action gamers but thankfully can be won at "easy" setting. Interplay later released an enhanced CD version of the game which features full voice acting from actual cast members.

Star Trek: Judgment Rites Interplay Productions, Inc. [top]

Sequel to the award-winning Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, Judgment Rites brings back the entire Enterprise crew in 8 all new episodes. Strange things are happening in distant space, such as dead planets spawning life and WW1 planes in outer space. You need to survive these situations. You must navigate your way through space, and send away teams onto planets to investigate situations, communicate with other characters and solve puzzles. Unlike the previous game, action sequences are optional. It's an even better and longer sequel to 25th Anniversary. Although gameplay remains the same (after all, it's a prudent "don't fix it if it ain't broke" philosophy), the plot this time is more complex and puzzles more difficult, which means that "optimal" solution is less obvious. Unfortunately, frustrating combat is also back, and dialogues are tedious at times. It's still a great game, however, and worthy of every adventurer's collection.

Star Trek: The Next Generation - A Final Unity Microprose Software / Spectrum Holobyte [top]

At last, a well-executed game based on the popular tv show follow-up to the original Star Trek show. The game doesn't waste any time: five minutes into gameplay, the player is confronted with a violation of Federation space, a group of alien defectors requesting political asylum, and a very large and pissed-off Romulan pursuit ship. This title's decent writing and Patrick Stewart's thespian baritone is excellent. In fact, the voice talent of the entire cast is here. Further, almost every aspect of the game: save-screens, astrogation, tactical combat, even the design of the manual is presented in a very attractive, straight-faced style consistent with nice Star Fleet Aesthetics. Players less interested in starship operations and more excited by living the lives of their favorite Star Trek characters may 'delegate' technical operations such as combat and power routing to crew members if they wish, but the hard-core, armchair starship commander can take full control - a very nice arrangement. In fact, if the game has a notable flaw, it may be that options are sometimes a little too open, and the player's range of choices a little too broad. Overall, this game offers an excellent extension of the feel of the show, and a solid game design as well. For its time, the production values are top notch. The film clips are impressive, and a "Holodeck" feature in the game allows you to watch cut scenes again and again to your heart's content. The graphics are well drawn, and all the main characters in ST:TNG are rendered in almost perfect fidelity with their real life counterparts. The voice acting stands out as one of the best voice tracks ever added to computer games. Ironically, the only real problem is that there is sometimes so much details in the background shots that, on occasions, it is difficult to pick out the hotspots.

Theatre Brendan Wyber [top]
A genuinely creepy game. Spend the night trapped in an abandoned theatre, accompanied by a variety of spooks and nameless horrors. Has an interesting two-layered plot: as the game progresses, the building's history is revealed by the pages of an old journal you find scattered about. Lots of hidden passages, solid (but not unduly hard) puzzles, and an adaptive hint system. Inspired by the short story The Ghosts of the Lyric, the entire text of which is available in the game via the help menu. A wonderful modern IF classic that is a must-play for everyone.

Total Distortion Pop Rocket [top]

This game is an expansive adventure, music video generator, and business sim all-in-one. The storyline goes as follows: You've spent every last penny of your money buying an expensive music video production tower and having it blasted off into another dimension. In order to complete the game you must earn enough money (minimum of $1 million) to blast your tower back home. To earn money you must make music videos. Dozens of songs and video clips are provided for you, and you must construct a "bonzai" video that one of three music TV producers would like and strike deals with them. But sometimes the clips and songs given don't cut it, and you must venture out into the world and film different clips yourself. Every once in a while you must have a duel to the death with a guitar monster. You also must recruit singers for your videos to improve your song quality, singers such as Johnny Fang and Edgar Death. All in all its a very large game with weeks of playing time. The game was also known for its sense of humor (When you died, the enemy that killed you would sing a song with the words, "You are dead, you are so so dead"). One of the most interesting features of the game was the sleep mode. When you would go to sleep, you would have a dream. If you fail the game, you will be transported into a nightmare, which you must win or die. The ultimate goal of the game is to get fame points, and to film successful music videos. The programming was headed up mostly by Joe Sparks, creator of Joe Cartoons and the popular "Radiskull and Devildoll". It took 4 years and 3 developers to complete the game. Design, music, video cost $500,000 - raised through family, friends, credit cards, and advances from distributors.

Loosely based on characters from Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel, this game details the exploits of Geoffroi le Brun as he attempts to prove his worth to the famous French regiment. It's as conventional as games go, but the interesting character interactions, challenging puzzles, and appealing plot all add up to a rewarding and fun adventure game that's reminiscent of LucasArts' classic Monkey Island in both style and humor despite some tedious dialogues and pixel-hunting moments.

Treasure Island Interactive Hollywood Interactive Digital Entertainment / Software Solutions [top]

The famous story of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island contains pirates, buried treasures and high sea adventures. With narration and live video, children can interact with the characters and participate in the adventures. There's very little actual game afoot here - the entire story plays out in badly-animated CG clips of a talking skull, except when he's a live-action badly-synched talking skull. There's audio narration over still images and low-budget full motion video clips with the dialogue dubbed in later. In many of the live-action sequences, it appears that the acquired footage was damaged, or the script was changed, or (most likely) there just wasn't enough footage to cover the dialogue. So much of the story is told using still frames or repeated clips to support the post-dubbed dialogue. Oh, the drama! The low-budget production values! The cheesy video effects!

Yellow Brick Road Synergy Interactive [top]

This is a strange little offering from the same people who brought you L-Zone and Alice: An Interactive Museum. The Gnome King's army, aided by the ruthless Grey Bear, is attacking the Emerald City and the beautiful Queen Glinda. The Lion has been captured and the Scarecrow has gone after him. The Tin Man saw it all and is collecting his axe in order to join the fray when you show up, slippers missing but otherwise unscathed. Of course, you can't wait to help. The Lion proves easy to find but not quite as easy to retrieve. As with many fairy tale rescues, you must fight for him, your foes on this occassion being two gnome soldiers. Tin Man insists on going it alone, but you call the shots. Select your attacker (not much of a choice this time) choose your weapon (the magic spray gun, the magic buzz saw blade or the ordinary axe) and then turn him loose on your foe of choice. Turn about is fair play though, so the gnomes go next. In fact, they just relentlessly advance as you try to drive them back. Use a magic weapon in your turn, and it will take longer to recover before you can attack again. Drive them back far enough and they run away. Fail to stop their advance and it's the scrap yard for the Tin Man. As there are two of them, and only one Tin Man, you will need to experiment with your weapons to see which works best, and target your foes accordingly. It's a bit like turn based rpg combat, a bit like the combat in Largo Winch. Getting rid of one of them makes the rest of the fight so much easier. There are 5 or 6 battle sequences in all, and they get a little harder, but the Tin Man is aided by his companions (once you rescue them) in the subsequent fights. Three on three is better odds. Plus you get some extra magic weapons, and Scarecrow has a wicked hat. Scarecrow, in fact, is worth playing this game for all on his own. Looking more like a knitted doll than a scarecrow, his facial expressions have to be seen to be believed. Giggle city. His magic weapon of choice also has quite interesting results. Throw in his hat (and I mean that literally) and he is one of the more interesting game characters going around. The little happy dance they all do after winning a battle is worth a watch too.

The world's first software about human rights, Amnesty Interactive is another outstanding CD-ROM from Voyager Company. Developed in conjunction with Amnesty International, the CD-ROM "...traces the progression of human rights from ancient times to the 20th century, through the ideas of noted thinkers and political figures. It is filled with a rich diversity of cultural styles in art and music, and there are many reference documents for teachers and students. Most affecting are the stories of former prisoners of conscience from Amnesty case files including Vaclav Havel, Paul Hill, and Hsiu-Lin Annette Lu whose articulate voices remind us that these are not remote Third-World issues." In addition to an excellent short introductory film about human rights, Amnesty Interactive includes an atlas of human rights conditions throughout the world (with a comprehensive almanac-style profile for each country), a collection of stories featuring former "prisoners of conscience" from Amnesty International case files, a gallery of animation and portraits from leading photographers, and even a very nice soundtrack by famous world musicians. The CD-ROM even contains a good "What You Can Do" section that describes how you can help the cause, including video interviews with educators, activists and entertainers such as Peter Gabriel and Jackson Browne. Like all other Voyager releases, Amnesty Interactive is very easy to use and pretty to look at.

ArtRageous! SuperStudio Ltd. / Future Vision Multimedia, Inc. [top]

This is a series of games and other interactive learning activities centered around art history. The learning adventure begins in a virtual plaza where the player/student can choose from a number of destinations to visit. Among the destinations are sizable, cross-referenced databases of both paintings and painter biographies. The main attraction is the rich variety of activities present. The activities cover 5 categories of understanding and appreciating art: Color, light, perspective, composition, and the life of art. The color category includes a color mixing game in which you must use varying amounts of red, blue, and yellow components to build a hue/saturation color wheel. Another activity demonstrates the effect of adjusting the brightness or contrast of a picture. These and other activities are supplemented with narrated explanations of color concepts. The activities covering light include a sphere with lights placed around it-- click on one of the lights to understand the visual effects of different light sources. Also, a game that explains light demonstrates how outlines create shape. The player's goal is to match a number of outlines to their respective images within a mish-mash painting. One of the perspective category games is to arrange a roomful of floating objects where they would fit more appropriately on the painting backdrop. Both the painting and the objects are drawn with a 3D perspective which gives the player clues about placement. Further, the player can elect to bring up a vanishing point line grid for help. The composition section demonstrates how elements of paintings convey meaning. One game that illustrates this concept asks the player to match which shape or concept (circle, triangle, balanced scale, or unbalanced scale) best represents each of a selection of paintings. The life of art category features a jigsaw puzzle game using square pieces. The player must re-assemble the puzzle in a given period of time.

Cadillacs and Dinosaurs: The Second Cataclysm Rocket Science Games, Inc. / BMG Interactive Entertainment [top]

A third-person driving and shooting game, based on a popular "alternative" comic series by Mark Shultz. The game is a rail-shooter, similar to Rocket Science's earliest game Loadstar. You find yourself in the so-called Xenozoic Age - after a cataclysm in 2020 A.D., mankind was forced to hide beneath the surface. Once it could come out again, it found the world terribly changed, with dinosaurs roaming freely once again. A mysterious mutant-like race, called the Grith, believe the cataclysm was caused by the upsetting of the natural balance. Now, the leader of the restored City in the Sea, Scharnhorst, is using old technology and disrupting the balance again. The Girth chose you, Jack Tenrec, and your partner Hannah Dundee, to rid the world of Scharnhorst. And you get to do it in a red '53 Cadillac with mounted machine guns. While you're at the task, you must battle hungry, mean dinosaurs, but also be careful not to upset the balance of nature. Also, try not to upset your volcanic-energy fueled caddy by hitting too much obstacles along the way. Graphics are a mix of 3D objects and environments and comic-like 2D sprites, but captures much of the original comic book's style.

Sketch himself can jump, attack and use various items that he finds along the comic book, including his rat friend, Roadkill. Button combinations can be used to unleash powerful techniques. The game progresses linear through each page of the comic book, however secret paths and alternate routes through the story can be discovered. At the end of each level, Sketch receives a super hero rating for how well he's progressing. The unique dialogue is rendered within talk bubbles with the typical comic font.

Command & Conquer Westwood Studios, Inc. / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Command & Conquer develops ideas from Westwood's previous game Dune 2, forming a real-time strategy (RTS) game. The control system involves selecting units with the mouse and then directing them, while the opponents make their moves without waiting for a "turn" to end. The game focuses on a war between two organizations, The Brotherhood of Nod and the Global Defense Initiative. The player can take control of either side for more than 15 missions. Both have different units and structures, including artillery, tanks and light infantry. In most missions, a base needs to be built first in order to build new units and structures. Most important are the harvesters, which collect Tiberium and deliver it to a refinery, where it's converted into money, thus funding the construction of a base and an army. A Windows 95 version came out in 1997 as Special Gold Edition with a tweaked graphics engine that allows the display of SVGA graphics. It was released after the success of the prequel Command & Conquer: Red Alert, which already featured the tweaked engine. An internet option for 2 players worldwide against each other was added. Includes the C&C Theme Pack with screen savers and desktop wallpapers. The game also features FMV mission briefings and victory cutscenes. To mark the 12th anniversary of the franchise, Electronic Arts, the current publisher and owner of the series, released the game for free in 2007.

Complete MAUS, The Voyager Company, The [top]

Explore the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel in ways never before possible with this special interactive CD-ROM edition. The Complete MAUS combines Volumes I and II with sketches, video, and supplementary documents to give the reader a unique look at this moving work. When it first appeared in 1986, MAUS, Art Spiegleman's memoir of his father's experiences during the Holocaust, was hailed as a powerful work of history. It represented a new level of maturity for a century-old art form; namely comix, which to that point had mostly been a medium for superhero fantasies and funny animal stories. With the appearance of MAUS, the point was made simply and clearly that a comixture of words and pictures could be used to portray any subject matter 0 even one so fare removed from the traditional comix subject matter as the genocide and persecution of Polish and German Jews during the years surrounding the Second World War. The Complete MAUS CD-ROM grants the user unprecedented access to the historical and structural details behind the finished book. The pages of MAUS are linked to preliminary sketches, alternate drafts, archival photographs, and drawings made by prisoners and audio from the interviews between Art Spiegelman and his father that were the basis for the narrative. In addition, there is QuickTime video and audio of Art Spiegelman discussing the making of MAUS, and critical commentary on the form, ideas, and history behind this powerful, groundbreaking work.

Corpse Killer Digital Pictures [top]

Corpse Killer is a game released for the Sega-CD, Sega-CD 32X, 3DO, Sega Saturn, Windows 95 and Macintosh computers that features live action full motion video in a format similar to other games developed by Digital Pictures. The quality of the full motion video on the Sega-CD version is less than that of the others. Also, after the release of the Sega-CD version, Digital Pictures created an option to have English subtitles during the full motion video as critics had complained that it was difficult to understand what the driver was saying in the Sega-CD and Sega 32X versions. Footage from the game was later recycled for the 2003 film Game Over. n unnamed United States Marine is airdropped onto a tropical island on a top secret mission to stop the evil Dr. Hellman, who plans to release his army of zombies on the world. He is bitten by a zombie and also meets an attractive female reporter and a Rastafarian male driver. Four of the marine lieutenant's comrades are captured by Hellman and turned into zombies. To rescue them, the lieutenant infiltrates Hellman's compound and shoots each of them with bullets coated with extract from Datura plants, which can turn freshly created zombies back into humans. Most of the gameplay is similar to other shooting full motion video games such as Lethal Enforcers. The player moves through the jungle shooting various zombies, collecting better ammunition (to prepare for a raid on Hellman's compound) and medicine to recover health.
While the console versions are still widely circulating on the Internet, both Mac and PC versions are pretty much unfindable (but have been released !).

Damocles (cancelled) Novagen Software / Psygnosis [top]

Damocles (occasionally advertised as Mercenary II) is the second game in the Mercenaries series. It was released on the Atari ST and Amiga platforms in 1990. Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum versions were originally in development but eventually cancelled as a consequence of the declining 8-bit market. Unlike Mercenary, Damocles represented the game environment using solid vector graphics, allowing a both more realistic and colourful world. An improved, fully texture mapped IBM PC version was in an advanced stage of development and scheduled for release in 1995, but was ultimately cancelled when a conflict between its developers, Novagen and Sony/Psygnosis, arose. Once again, the player is stranded on a planet, Eris, with an inoperable spacecraft. Unlike the first game, however, the scope of Damocles is considerably widened, offering the player an entire solar system to explore (the Gamma System; the player's original destination before the Interlude on Targ). There is also a race-against-time element to the game as a comet, the eponymous Damocles (a reference the Sword of Damocles), is hurtling towards Eris. The player is encouraged to both escape Eris and find a means to prevent Damocles from destroying the planet, if possible without destroying the comet. Although an obvious, but destructive, solution exists, Damocles has no fewer than five distinct solutions. A notable feature of Damocles is its inclusion of relatively detailed celestial mechanics into the game physics. While the game also features less standard physics (e.g. teleportation), it includes a detailed representation of the Gamma System and even includes a simplified form of special relativity. To cross the solar system in reasonable (to the player) time, time dilation occurs. However, given that the player has only a few hours to save Eris, extended periods at near-light speed are unwise. One of the game's many solutions even involves manipulating various planetary bodies in order to make use of the changes in gravitational pulls to divert the Damocles comet. From an aesthetic point of view, the inclusion of celestial physics allows the player to experience attractively-rendered sunrises and sunsets while on planet surfaces as well as various satellite occultations.
There are some rumors that a demo of the PC version was released, but the fans of the series had no luck to find it. In 2010, a developer by the name of Devil Master created a PC game called TADPSID, with the goal to "recreate as closely as possible the look that Damocles for PC was supposed to have", using screenshots from videogames magazines mentioning the game.

Das Geheimnis von Foody [G] MIT, ComUnique Marketing / Institut Danone for Nutrition [top]

When little Daniel comes home from school, he went straight to eating healthy. He's so fascinated by the subject in the classroom, that he was still reading in the textbook about it. Suddenly, the Foodys, sweet little aliens from the planet Foody appear and ask Daniel for help because the diet board has been destroyed in seven parts and is now guarded by nasty monsters. Daniel is naturally afire for the now upcoming platforming adventure. The graphics are really well done, and is comparable to commercial games of that time. The gameplay is also very interesting. In the game there are two attributes: fat and carbohydrates. Depending on what foods Daniel picks up in the game, they increase either the one attribute or the other. Carbohydrates cause Daniel to run faster and jump higher. Fat causes consequently the opposite. Daniel wears a can with lemon or a water gun. There are three different levels of difficulty and seven levels including a final boss which in promotional games is not always present.

Day After Trinity, The The Voyager Company [top]

Fifty years ago, on July 16, 1945, the first nuclear weapon exploded into the desert sky at Trinity Site - Alamogordo, New Mexico. Jon Else's Academy Award- nominated documentary is the definitive record of the building of the bomb and a penetrating portrait of J. Robert Oppenheimer, its brilliant and elusive architect. Nobody knew whether the bomb would work at all, or work so well that the atmosphere itself would ignite (the night before, physicist Enrico Fermi was taking bets on the odds of incinerating the State of New Mexico). With the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the buoyant spirit of the war effort yielded to the grim reality of the Cold war, the McCarthy Era, and the elegiac interviews of an extraordinary scientific elite, The Day After trinity achieves an emotional force and focus which no other work on the subject even approaches. The CD-ROM features the complete 88-minute film in Quicktime video, running commentary by director Jon Else and historian Michael Renov, declassified military and FBI documents, a photo gallery of over 100 images, complete transcripts of all interviews excerpted in the film, biographical notes on everyone who appears in the film, and a complete glossary of terms.

First Person: Mumia Abu-Jamal - Live From Death Row Voyager Company, The [top]

Called "the voice of the voiceless," award-winning journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal speaks with uncommon passion and clarity about the lives of African-Americans, the judicial system, and life behind bars. Jamal has been on death row since 1982, accused of the murder of a Philadelphia policeman. Many contend that he was imprisoned because of his political beliefs. Human Rights Watch gave him its 1995 award for writers under political persecution and Amnesty International has stated that the government "appears to have overtly used Mumia Abu-Jamal's past political beliefs and affiliations...to impose the death penalty." Mumia Abu-Jamal writes from an incredibly dark place with humanity, objectivity, and wit, carrying a message of hope and freedom. This CD-ROM contains An introduction to Mumia Abu-Jamal's life, from his early membership in the Black Panther Party to his career as an award-winning Philadelphia journalist and supporter of the MOVE organization, performed by Giancarlo Esposito. Also included is the entire text of Jamal's book Live from Death Row and a video interview recorded in 1989 while Jamal's sentence was under appeal, and an audio interview recorded in 1994. There's also almost fifty audio commentaries, taped in prison for radio broadcast and other writings by Jamal, indexed by year and title. There is also collected statements about Jamal's life and work from E. L. Doctorow, John Edgar Wideman, Cornel West, Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., Derrick Bell, Ramona Africa, and others.

For All Mankind The Voyager Company [top]

Between 1968 and 1972, twenty-four astronauts left this planet for another world. They were, in filmmaker Al Reinert's words, "the first extraterrestrial humans." This is the story of their astounding voyage, a composite portrait, from blastoff to splashdown, of the Apollo missions. Culled from eighty hours of interviews and a warehouse of NASA film, the seventy-nine-minute film took ten years to complete. It is a breathtaking, intimate look at these brave men as they clown around in the weightlessness, bounce around the moon's surface, banter with Mission Control, and speak eloquently about the "beautifully, brilliantly illuminated blue marble that we call the earth." This groundbreaking documentary is supplemented by over one hundred images from NASA archives, maps of lunar landing sites, accounts of every manned mission from Apollo 1 to Apollo 17, biographies of the astronauts written exclusively for this CD-ROM by author Andrew Chaikin, photographs of all the astronauts, an animated illustration of a lunar voyage and diagrams of spacecrafts and equipment.

Last Dynasty, The Coktel Vision / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

Roommates Mr. Mel and Mr. Dok have gone missing. Dok, a designer of space combat flight simulators, reported to his landlord a week before his disappearance that he'd accidentally created a tiny hole in his wall, related to something he was working on. Now, since neither has been seen for a week, the police are called in to investigate and find a huge hole in the wall, a wrecked apartment, some CD-ROMs with installation procedures and little else. From there, the story moves to a gigantic and sinister space station with more than 100 unique locales. You, as Mel Raauq, find yourself in the middle of a galactic-sized space combat adventure, flying your own customized spacecraft. Your mission is to find and defeat the evil Lord Iron, whose dark forces are threatening peace and tranquility in the galaxy. The game contains three major phases: narrative, combat and adventure. Through the use of 3D animation, video sequences, music and sound, you learn the story of The Last Dynasty via the narrative phase. During the combat phase, you pilot many types of spacecraft, including several different fighters and cargo vessels, while engaging similar enemy craft. The first seven combat missions must be completed prior to advancing to the adventure phase. Then, as Mel Raauq, you explore the environment, collect items and objects essential to solving puzzles and work your way through the various missions. The interface supports keyboard, mouse and joystick control. Other features include a 3D map during combat and four main weapon types: lasers, remote-controlled missiles, rockets and aft mines. The game's cost of $2 million to develop was expensive for the time and its lack of success might have led to Coktel's demise.

Launch Magazine LAUNCH Media [top]

This is a music magazine issued both in print and as a CD-ROM disk magazine. Eventually the print version was eliminated and subscribers were sent only the CD-ROM version. LAUNCH magazine disks were often found pre-packaged with new PCs in the late 1990s. LAUNCH magazine contained video interviews, live performances, and special video segments by music stars as well as standard (but interactive) music magazine features. LAUNCH Media later introduced LAUNCH.com, the official LAUNCH magazine website. The site featured LAUNCH magazine content, music videos, and, beginning in 1999, LAUNCHcast Internet radio. It included a still-image laden murder mystery spanning one thousand years called "The Cypher" developed by EPG Media over several magazine issues with the last chapter coming in issue #10. A Real Player plug-in was required. The Cypher weaves together three timelines -- the medieval, Victorian and late 20th century. It opens in the summer of 1900 as archeologist James Francis Ravenshim is excavating beneath the ruins of Ravenshim Castle. He discovers a series of hidden chambers containing a puzzling collection of ancient charts, diaries, weapons and mechanical devices that defy comprehension. Ravenshim believes that the answers to who collected them and why lies in a chamber hidden behind a sealed bronze door. Obsessed with the task of deciphering the secret code that can unlock it, he reaches its horrifying climax on the stroke of midnight, Dec. 31, 1999...the Millennium. LAUNCH Media was acquired by Yahoo! for US$12 million in 2001. The features of LAUNCH.com, including the LAUNCHcast Internet Radio service, were later integrated into Yahoo! Music.

Leonardo: Die Venezianische Verschwoerung [G] Verlag C. H. Beck [top]

The Adventure "Leonardo" plays in the age of Renaissance in Italy. In the year 1505 somebody stole very important documents from Leonardo da Vinci's atelier in Florence. The thief comes probably from antagonistic Venice. One of the documents tells about one secret manuscript where Leonardo's perpetuum mobile is described. That manuscript can be found in one of Abbeys in the north of Italy and that information can be taken from one of the stolen documents. If somebody reads it, he can go to the Abbey and steal the manuscript. Venice hopes to get great power by building perpetuum mobile. That's why Leonardo is worried about future of Florence. He asks his faithful servant Salai to find the secret manuscript. You are Salai, Leonardo's servant and pupil. You have to find the manuscript and save Florence. The story is created by developers, but all the history dates, persons and many other things in that game are real. Many texts inform you about Leonardo da Vinci, his life and his time. In such way you learn about that thrilling age. It's just a 2D adventure in 256 colors (very pixilated) and you can only read all the dialogs (there is no sound, only subtitles). But the background music makes the situation a little bit better.

You can control a single animal or all members of a pride and you get to play in either a 20-mission mode (such as survive for a day) or a simulation mode, which allows you to do whatever you want. Unlike in Wolf, which takes place in 3 different locales, Lion is played only on the savannas and plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania (tough in four different seasons). Also includes a "Lion Safari", an interactive tour of the leoline life on the Serengeti.

Loadstar: The Legend Of Tully Bodine Rocket Science Games, Inc. / BMG Interactive Entertainment [top]

Loadstar is a rail-shooter concerned with shooting enemies while navigating your ship, much like Sewer Shark. You're actually on rails in this game, as you travel in a truck/train called Loadstar along a magnetic rail network covering the moon. Shifting the cursor to the edge of the screen changes to a different track when available, with incorrect turns either killing you instantly or moving you off-course from the level end. Direction indicators and distant landmarks help keep you driving in the right direction, while accidents, track closures, and robot cops work to keep you from it. Your weapons "tag" enemies and force them to explode, or can tag incoming shots and deflect them with a separate shield button. Gameplay is broken into three levels as you race from one destination to another to escape with your cargo. The game features sophisticated full-motion video cutscenes breaking up the levels and providing the story. Barry Primus and Ned Beatty star.

Macbeth David Rodes & A.R. Braunmuller / Voyager Company [top]

One of the best CD-ROMs ever made and the best software ever made about Shakespeare's works, Voyager's Macbeth is a masterpiece in literary CD-ROM. The CD not only includes the fully indexed and searchable text of Shakespeare's famous tragedy (based on the recently published Cambridge edition, edited by one of the CD-ROM's co-authors, Professor A. R. Braunmuller), but more importantly the *complete audio performance* of the entire play by the Royal Shakespeare Company, directed by Trevor Nunn, which stars Ian McKellan as Macbeth, and Judi Dench as Lady Macbeth. Definitely one of the best renditions of the play ever performed. In terms of user interface, Voyager outdid themselves with Macbeth. Not only can you jump to any page or word, but you can also click on any line of the play to go directly to that place in the RSC's audio performance and hear it read out loud. There are numerous notes, anecdotes, and glossary items (over 1,500 of them), all of which are hyperlinked and indexed, and 25,000-word worth of extensive essays that analyze the play in detail. And if that's not enough, you can view video clips from other performances of key scenes, from Macbeth movies directed by Akira Kurosawa, Orson Welles, and Roman Polanski. To top it all off, there's plenty of maps, charts, and images to make this the definitive CD-ROM about the play. As always, you can copy any text from the CD-ROM to paste it into a word processor of your choice. Macbeth is without a doubt another high quality title from Voyager, one that successfully marries the scholarly expertise of the authors -- in this case Drs. Rodes and Braunmuller, two Shakespearian scholars -- with Voyager's technical and design expertise in creating attractive CD-ROMs. If you have even a slight interest in Shakespeare, this wonderful CD-ROM is a must-have.

Marco Polo I-Motion [top]

Set in Asia during the Middle Ages, you play the role of an aspiring merchant in I-Motion's Marco Polo, one of the most obscure games from the company. By buying low and selling high and completing missions entrusted to you by the various characters that you encounter throughout the game, you gain fame and fortune. As the title implies, your goal is to emulate Marco Polo, legendary explorer and merchant who helped make the "Silk Road" one of the most important trading routes in history. Since it's an economics simulation, albeit a historical one, there are no "victory conditions" to fulfill. Similar to Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon, you can "retire" whenever you wish, at which point you will be given a score based on your wealth and prestige. The game is a "light" simulation in a sense that it's not based on a complicated economic model, and there are far less variables at work here than, say, Holistic Design's Machiavelli The Prince. As a merchant who has no interest in politics, all you have to do in the game is to buy low, and sell high somewhere else. You can haggle over the prices by increasing or lowering your bids. The interface, although very easy to use, becomes a little cumbersome as the list of things you bought grows large, requiring you to scroll often to find anything in your goods inventory. One very nice feature that sets this apart from similar games is the heavy use of multimedia. Your missions are given in short video sequences, and encounters with other characters are done with still shots and audio. While traveling through Asia, many of the events you hear of, or even participate in, are historically accurate. Many of the characters you meet, such as Kublai Khan, are also be based on historical personalities. Another fun aspect of the game is the background information Marco Polo himself: the story of his family and travels is narrated to you while you watch a "slide show" that is occasionally interrupted by video clips. This historical facet adds a good dose of realism to the game, and makes it educational to boot. Overall, it's entertaining, a bit too simplistic, simulation of historical trading. The video clips make the game interesting and educational, and seeing historical events depicted on screen is always exciting. The acting is also above-average-- something that can't be said for most FMV games at the time. Well worth a look, although fans of history will probably like the game more than fans of complex economic sims.

This demo disc, aptly named MegaMedia, has some programs with games, videos, music audio tracks, and other random efforts on it. The theme on this CD, unsurprisingly, is Monolith themselves. One of the programs is a virtual reality experience called DOSRage (winrage.exe) which looks kind of like the 3D first person view from the win 95 sampler CD's. Also there is some early work on Claw in it and the Monolith edition of Microman (which was later reworked into the first episode of The Adventures Of MicroMan), a side-scrolling action platformer. Microman uses "WAP" (Windows Animation Package) engine which was one of the first 2D gaming engines (with flicker-free software sprites) created specifically for Windows. The CD is filled with games such as an Asteroids clone called Asteroid Miner and a few animations including their logo at that time as well as a really trippy experience called "Just a Dream".

Oregon Trail II MECC / SoftKey Multimedia Inc. [top]

This sequel game follows the basic structure of the predecessor, which is a simulation of traveling through towns and wilderness in the state of Oregon, with adventure-like gameplay elements and educational material. The sequel changes, enhances, and adds many gameplay features. In the beginning of the game players choose their name, occupation, level, date of travel, starting point and destination, as well as the type of wagon. The game also allows the player to create virtual companions for the journey, designating their number, names, and ages. As opposed to one year in the first game, the sequel allows the player to choose between twenty years of travel, from 1840 to 1860. The player is able to choose an occupation for the protagonist, such as banker, doctor, gunsmith, carpenter, journalist, butcher, pastor, artist, and many others. Different occupations bestow various bonuses to the protagonist, and are equipped with passive skills, which will influence the rate of success during certain random events and activities. For example, a high medical skill will make it more likely that the protagonist recovers from a disease; sharpshooting skill contributes to the instant-kill rate when hunting animals, etc. The game retains the supply-managing, trading, sailing, and most other elements of its predecessor. There are more interactive events in the sequel, as the protagonist is able to consult other characters and react differently to some of the events that might occur during the journey.

Immediate and irreverent, the film has the feeling of an intimate conversation. De Antonio shows artists (and their critics and patrons) gossiping, drinking, and talking about life and art, and in the process illuminates the genesis of Abstract Expressionism. Footage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970 supplements the film. An invaluable resource for anyone interested in contemporary art, Painters Painting brilliantly captures a turning point in American art and culture.

Each tour offers a multitude of animation, video, and interactive elements to explore certain locations and concepts more in-depth. The four contemporary guides show you Jerusalem today from their unique perspectives (Jewish Jerusalem today, Christian Jerusalem, Muslim Jerusalem, and Secular Jerusalem). Each guide appears as a video against Jerusalem locations and illustrations. The "historical" guides are professionally acted and humorously portrayed. King David's tour is the highlight and tells the story of Jerusalem's founding, and includes an animated tour of Solomon's Temple. Scholarly without being dull. Humorous without being irreverant.

When Ron Mann's superb film Poetry in Motion came to CD-ROM, it created a whole new genre: the dramatic paring of written text and video performance. Here was a new way to experience poetry: viewers could read a poem, watch it being performed by the author, or just sit back and let the words wash over them. The result was a breakthrough for people dissatisfied with the single dimension of the printed page and a perfect tonic for anyone who thinks poetry is dull. The second volume brings twenty-four stirring performances to light for the first time ever. Some poets are familiar from the first volume: Helen Adam, Amiri Baraka, Ted Berrigan, Charles Bukowski, Jim Carroll, Robert Creeley, Diana de Prima, Allen Ginsberg, John Giorno, Michael Ondaatje, Gary Snyder, and Anne Waldman.

Police Quest: SWAT, Daryl F. Gates' Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

The SWAT series are the follow up of Sierra's classic adventure game series Police Quest. The adventure game decreased in popularity by the mid-nineties and Jim Walls, the former series designer, left Sierra and was replaced by real-life SWAT founder Daryl F. Gates. Shifting from an adventure series to a tactical simulator, SWAT puts you in command of a member on a swat team. Centered around training and then several missions, your adherence to procedure and team work will determine the outcome. It's an "interactive movie" type game that suffered the same fate as most titles of the same genre released during the so-called Multimedia Explosion in the mid-nineties. With extensive use of FMV videos for its basic gameplay, the game took up four CDs. In keeping the rule strictness of the previous series, the majority of the game is spent in reptitive training exercises. In fact, there are only 3 actual missions in the game (a deranged grandmother, a barricaded fugitive, and a terrorist attack). Each of the missions can only be accessed after the successful completion of many training exercises. To increase replay value, the missions are randomized so that they unfold in a different way each time (a character may be an innocent in one play-through, and a gun-wielding maniac in another). The role the player takes during the mission also differs based on the career path they have selected during training; for example during the last mission the player may act as either the element leader or a high-ground sniper. The strictness and discipline the game attempts to convey is emphasized by the game's opening movie, an introductory briefing delivered by the Sergeant to the player character. If the player attempts to skip this opening movie, the Sergeant will berate the player character for this disrespectful and insubordinate behavior.

Scrutiny In The Great Round ScruTiny Associates / Calliope [top]

Enter a magically interactive dreamscape through which you wander and make astonishing discoveries. Or just relax and savor the paintings, poetry and music that ebb and flow at your command. Navigate through a banquet of interwoven images, metaphoric icons, audible symbols, and words. Most software titles merely allow you to open files and manipulate data. This allows you to open your mind and manipulate your perspective. Immerse yourself in art. Like nothing you have ever seen before - and never on a computer screen. It's art. It's entertainment. It's engaging. It's a window into yourself. Based on a handmade book of collage art by New York artist Tennessee Rice Dixon, images dominate the screen. Traditional imagery is transferred into the electronic age with more than 250 QuickTime sequences seamlessly integrated into the background. The story they tell is the human struggle through stages of life: birth, death, confrontation, reunion, romance and progeny. You explore these stages from a masculine or feminine point of view by clicking on a moon or sun. Once you choose a path, you're captivated with wild scenes such as stallions morphing into seahorses that turn in circles against the night sky. A mixture of poetry and sound complete the experience. text, read by a man and a woman, is taken from sources that include the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. It is the sound, however, that empowers you. As you move across hot spots, one area emits classical music, while another activates birds cooing or the sound of a heartbeat against chirping crickets.

Slam City with Scottie Pippen Digital Pictures, Inc. [top]

This is a Full-Motion-Video basketball game. It uses proprietary technology to allow switching from one scene to another without lag, which allows for smoother interactive video. Gameplay is relatively simple, using little more than arrow keys, and is very different from any other basketball simulation. Basketball is merely the subject for the game's plot, involving the new-guy, Ace (the player), and a host of other characters, basketball players or just spectators, all with different personalities. It's basically play one-on-one on a warehouse court and climb the "ladders" until you earn enough respect to play against Scottie Pippen. The game features a total of 13 characters, 5 of which the player has an option to play against, all of which are played by real actors.

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

The Star Trek Omnipedia is an interactive CD-ROM that contains content from the Star Trek Encyclopedia and Star Trek Chronology. It was succeeded by later versions that were simply called the Star Trek Encyclopedia. The software allows the user to call up commands to the computer with the use of a microphone. An extensive training program is required before use, so that the computer will recognize the user's voice. For added authenticity, the user can address the "Computer" and it will reply with a beep before proceeding with the request. Majel Barrett provides the voice of the computer and Mark Lenard narrates several featured topics illustrated with diagrams and imagery. These include biographies of James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek production history, The history of the Enterprise and the history of the future. The initial release of Omnipedia covered all 3 seasons of TOS, all 7 seasons of TNG, DS9 up to Season 2 and the first six Star Trek films. Users who had registered the software received a free update CD-ROM in December 1995 that added information on DS9 Season 3, VOY Season 1 and the seventh feature film, Star Trek Generations.

Super Star Wars (cancelled) Brain Bug / Softgold [top]

The PC version of this well-known Super Nintendo game was being ported to the PC and had some really nice improvements, but it never hit the shelves due to management changes inside LucasArts. The game followed the plot of the first Star Wars movie (that is Episode IV) very closely. It's a standard side-scrolling shooter that set new standards in graphics and sound. Most of the action is restricted to side-scrolling but there are a few chances to enter a "3D" environment, such as the surface of the Death Star. There are Stormtroopers, Sand people, Jawas, Cantina aliens, hundreds of Tie Fighters, interrogation droids, and loads of mechanized killers to fight off. To help, players get to choose between taking Chewbacca, Luke, or Han Solo through each level. (This option doesn’t become available until Luke meets up with them.) They don't differ much in ability, although Luke can use a lightsaber and Chewbacca can take more damage. Practically anything that can be destroyed holds something useful, such as a heart, shields, a blaster power-up, thermal detonators, or a health sword. Some sections are incredibly difficult, with an obscene amount of jumping puzzles. For example, the third level tasks Luke with scaling the outside of a Jawa sandcrawler. There are lots of moving platforms and projectiles to dodge. All graphics were redone for the PC, as the SNES was very limited regarding colors. For the very last level (The Trench) it was created a very nice fake 3D effect. The Death Star explosion was a huge new but well compressed SGI animation. All music was redone to use AdLib, MIDI and WAV's. When the game was close to final, with only a few possible bugs left, LucasArts pulled the plug and the game was never released. A leaked version though did turn up on the internet.

Theatre of the Imagination The Voyager Company [top]

Orson Welles' seminal work as a filmmaker is well-known, but few realize that he was just as accomplished in the world of radio theatre as he was in filmmaking. Theatre of the Imagination, an entertaining and detailed new CD-ROM by the Voyager Company, explores Welles' achievements during the 'golden age of radio' of the 1930s and'40s, revealing the ways in which his genius transformed radio forever. Theatre of the Imagination contains over five hours worth of Welles' original radio broadcasts, which range from his cackling antics as pulp fiction hero "The Shadow" to broadcasts on classics like A Tale of Two Cities and Hamlet. The only notable absence is Welles' War of the Worlds broadcast, famous for the widespread panic it caused when the listening public thought the descriptions of invading martians were real and actually occurring. The producers of the disc do explain this somewhat by noting they sought to restore more of his obscure or hard-to-find work, but it would have been a nice addition nonetheless. The supplementary material is quite exhaustive, replete with program notes, transcripts, articles on Welles, interviews, and even a 40-minute documentary narrated by Entertainment Tonight film critic Leonard Maltin. Highlights include a recording of the first and only on-air interview between Orson Welles and War of the Worlds author H.G. Wells (though it makes the absence of the War broadcast all the more glaring), as well as an amusing 1938 movie about radio sound effects called Back of the Mike. War of the Worlds' absence aside, this a detailed and entertaining disc. If you have any interest at all in the work of Orson Welles or radio theatre, then you should pick up Theatre of the Imagination immediately.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness Blizzard Entertainment Inc. [top]

Get ready for another round of war between humans and orcs as the epic struggle for control of Azeroth continues in this real-time strategy game. The same protagonists last seen in the original game go at it again but with new and enhanced weapons, more creatures and an expanded fantasy game world encompassing land, sea and air. Both orc and human perspectives are supported through an equal division of the game's 28 campaign scenarios. The game contains new features such as the "fog of war" option that elevates strategic planning to a higher level, much larger maps and combined-arms tactics. New units in the sequel include elven archers, gryphons, death knights, battleships, airships, dragons and more. For fans craving even additional scenarios, both a sound and map editor have been included, ensuring longer life of the product. Multi-player action is supported via LAN (up to eight players), modem or direct link, with the latter two accommodating two players. The Macintosh version supports the AppleTalk network and TCP/IP connections. It provides the player with two interface and preference choices for gameplay. The first configures keyboard and mouse commands to replicate functionality of the style used in the first game that allowed automatic centering on the mini-map by clicking the right mouse button. The second configuration replaces that functional key press by giving the player the capability to induce automatic commands instead with the loss of auto-centering on the mini-map. In addition to an in-depth background story regarding the warring factions, the manual contains complete information on legends, creatures and resources of Azeroth along with full disclosure of tendencies and attributes inherent to the Nations of the Alliance (human faction) and the Orcish Horde. These include data on units (air, ground and naval), spells, buildings and a "dependency" tree for tracking pre-requisites during development of each race's infrastructure. The demo version contains two 3-mission campaigns, one for each side, with unique missions that are not included in the retail version of the game. In 2000, Warcraft II: Battle.net Edition was released that contains both Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, and Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal. It's been updated, with re-sampled sounds, and is playable over Blizzard's Battle.net online service. New features, such as improved fog of war and shared vision, were also added.

Will We Miss Them? Endangered Species Laser Resources, Inc. [top]

This has a noble purpose: to focus children's attention and interest on 13 endangered species like the Bald Eagle, the Blue Whale, and the Mountain Gorilla. Billed as "an interactive, educational, and fun CD-ROM", it's based on a book published by Charlesbridge Publishing which was written by an eleven year-old. It is educational; what it's not is interactive. The text is very good, the illustrations are attractive, and the animal sounds are vivid, but there is no integration between any of these elements. To see a brief animation, click on the "Animations" button at the bottom of the screen; to hear sounds, click on the "Sounds" button. There are no clickable hotspots (standard fare in kids' programs), nor are there any hypertext or links, although there is a section which provides additional information about the animals. Besides the book, you get a very limited coloring book, two screens to paint, and a few puzzles. The only extra that shows any imagination is the inclusion of an "Adopt a whale" form for kids to fill out and send in.

Wolfsbane is an atmospheric game with a neat premise that foreshadows Sierra's outstanding Gabriel Knight 2: You are a medieval merchant who was bitten by a werewolf and must find a way to remove the curse by midnight. Despite a nice interface and good graphics, the game ultimately suffers from poor writing, mundane puzzles, and frustrating combat.

X-COM: Terror from the Deep MicroProse Ltd. / MicroProse Software, Inc. [top]

This follow-up to the resource management and tactical combat game X-COM: Enemy Unknown. It has been 40 years since X-COM last defeated the aliens. Now, in the year of 2040, aliens begin to appear on the Earth again. This time the threat to humanity is coming from the depths of oceans. The game is almost identical to the original X-COM game. The user interface, weapons, and aliens are all the same. The only difference is the adaptation of the aliens and weapons (e.g. new hand-to-hand weapons) to the ocean environment. The game features both undersea and on-land missions, and is significantly harder than its predecessor. The first part of the game is the real time-based GeoScape, a global view of Earth where the player views alien and X-COM craft and bases, can hire and dismiss staff, buy and sell vehicles, weaponry, ammunition and items, and build and expand bases. The second part, the BattleScape, is used for combat between squads of aliens and humans, and takes the form of a turn-based battle from an isometric view.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Orange Cherry New Media Schoolhouse / SoftKey Multimedia [top]

Professor Aronnax, his faithful servant, Conseil, and the Canadian harpooner, Ned Land, begin an extremely hazardous voyage to rid the seas of a little-known and terrifying sea monster. However, the "monster" turns out to be the giant submarine, Nautilus, commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo, by whom they are soon held captive. So begins not only one of the great adventure classics by Jules Verne, the "Father of Science Fiction", but also a truly fantastic voyage from the lost city of Atlantis to the South Pole. The disc features dramatic narration, word definitions, animation, music, sound effects and a reading comprehension quiz. The program's main menu has options for reading the story, taking a quiz or exiting back to the Finder. Selecting the Read Story option takes you to a screen where there are buttons for accessing each of the book's sixteen chapters as well as a special animated page. Unlike the original, colour illustrations adorn each of this version's 178 pages. There are also 450 words in the story, identified by a different colour, that carry definitions. Clicking on any of these words displays a dialogue box containing a concise definition, and the computer reads aloud both the word and definition. A control panel at the bottom of each page contains buttons for moving forward or back a page, reading aloud the current page or entire story, adjusting the volume, moving to a specific page number, returning to the chapter menu or exiting the story. Selecting the Fish option from the chapter menu takes you into something the publisher calls a 'living page'. The screen consists of an animated underwater scene in which you control a diver swimming among four different species of fish: Lionfish, Sargassum Frogfish, Vermillion Seabass and a Blue-Spotted Ribbontail Ray. The mouse controls the diver's direction and when the diver comes close to a fish, and the mouse button is depressed, an enlarged picture of the fish appears accompanied by four icons: Nomenclature, Physical Description, Habitat, and Natural Selection. Each button displays information such as the fish's proper name, habitat, physical description, diet, defensive mechanisms and camouflage techniques. This 'living page' is well done and very much in keeping with the discovery and exploration themes in the story. Choosing the Quiz from the main menu displays the sixteen chapter icons. Each chapter has four multiple choice reading comprehension questions, each with four choices of A, B, C or D. There is immediate verbal feedback after answering each question telling you if you answered correctly or incorrectly and a total appears when the four questions have been answered. All of the questions are clearly worded and are sufficient for assessing basic reading comprehension.

To enter "The Adventures of Batman & Robin" MovieBook children simply click on an awesome steel door which leads into the Arkham Gallery, a secret room within the Arkham Asylum, which holds the most insane criminals in Gotham City. The Arkham Gallery is a 3D rendered chamber, complete with padded walls and the Bat-symbol for a true gothic feel. One pathway represents the entrance point and three other pathways lead to adventure. Heading down each differently-hued hallway enables the child to access a storybook that describes Batman and Robin's pursuit of a different villain -- The Riddler, Mr. Freeze and Harley Quinn -- and lets the child follow in the footsteps of the crime fighters as they capture the bad guys. Children can read each adventure story themselves or choose the narrative option which automatically takes pre-readers through the story, triggering animations and video clips on cue. Reading each storybook in full rewards the child with puzzle pieces that when combined form different scenes.

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

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

Dinonauts Orbital Studios, Inc. / Virgin Sound and Vision [top]

This involves a stalwart group of dinosaurs who travel in space looking for a new planet to inhabit. Weird? Just remember this is a kid's game so suspend your belief. I'd describe this as being something of a non-linear interactive storybook. Rather than it being read in a linear fashion, the game's story is decided by the player as to which order of planets they want to explore. It also includes a number of interactive activities (or minigames) which aren't essential to advance the story, but are mostly there for the sake of livening up to the game's format. So it's a storybook with some adventure gaming elements in it. Kids and dinosaurs touch down on eight wonderful worlds filled with new friends, stories, humor, and music. Each planet boasts exciting activities that challenge kids, develop learning skills, and provide hours of fun. Create your own coloring book - print out and color over 100 animated scenes. Enjoy television style animation; travel through 100 interactive scenes and meet over 40 new characters on the way. Compose, record, and play back original music and hear familiar songs on the planet Harmonia. Test problem solving skills, and save the population of Cubitron by matching colors and shapes to repair the robot maker. Challenge coordination skills - use shapes and objects to build giant planes, trains, and automobiles on the planet Gigantis.

Mickey Mouse and his friends appear in an environment where the game's activities allow users to draw, paint and create artwork. It enjoins you to create masterpieces from your imagination.

The Lesson Area is a step-by-step instructional process on how to draw Disney-based characters. Presented in slideshow fashion, it guides you on creating individual body parts and offers histories behind the featured characters. After viewing the demonstration, you can trace the characters or create one from scratch based on what you've learned. The Magic Artist Desktop features a large group of tools, line options and patterns - here you construct works of art from scratch. Tools include button sizes, freehand, straight and curved lines, paintbrushes, markers, spray-cans, erasers, text, various shape makers and an image spray tool. Paintbrushes include oil, water and finger paints while the marker features regular round tips, flat tips and an elliptical tip. You can also choose from regular spray, splatter and 3D paints. Oops! You've messed up your masterpiece. Not to worry - use one of the hard, soft or squeegee erasers! When the painting calls for text, you have the option of selecting font sizes, types and styles (bold, italics and underline included). The shape maker tools allow you to design perfect circles, squares, triangle or diamond shapes; you can fill these shapes with solid colors or color outlines. If you'd rather use pre-fabricated images instead of creating them, utilize the image spray tool for the insertion of ladybugs and other critters and objects. The Magic Artist Desktop also features customizable stamps, millions of colors and various color and texture fillers. After creating various paintings, utilize the Gallery option to present your work; nine images can be stored in a sketchbook.

Disney's The Lion King Activity Center Disney Interactive [top]

Designed for children five years of age and over, Disney's Activity Center: The Lion King features educational activities, mini-games and artistic capabilities wrapped around the world seen in the animated movie. Acting as the central hub, the Pride Lands incorporates three distinctive locations -- the Jungle, Rafiki's Tree and the Shadowlands, each featuring a series of activities. By entering the first environment, you have access to three games. The first, Timon's Bug Matching Game, involves matching two bugs of the same type from among a series of similar looking insects. After filling Timon's belly, move on to the educational Timon and Pumbaa's Spelling Game. Once you correctly spell the given word, Pumbaa falls into a pit of mud -- incentive to spell correctly. The final game is Pumbaa's Hidden Animal Friends with the objective to locate incognito animals in three different jungle-designed scenes. Rafiki's Tree includes three activities including Art Center, Picture Puzzles and an African board game known as Achi. Art Center demands an imagination -- you begin with a blank canvas and create whatever comes to mind using a piece of chalk, paint or the magic brush. If you're feeling uninspired, you can utilize the coloring book feature or connect the dots. Picture Puzzles incorporates scenes from The Lion King movie...only thing is, they've been broken into pieces. Your objective is to put them back together by clicking and dragging individual pieces to their respective places. Similar to tic-tac-toe, Achi features a series of colored stones and scooped out sections. The idea is to place three stones in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal fashion; unfortunately, your opponent is trying to do the exact same thing. Finally, the Shadowlands includes Ed's Xylobones, Memory Challenge and Simba's A-Maze-ing Escape. As the play on word suggests, Ed's Xylobones is a rhythmic jam session featuring different musical notes, drumbeats and tones. You have the option of creating your own song or participating in a duet. Memory Challenge features a series of cards (facing down) with corresponding characters from the animated film. Once you've selected a card, you must find the matching card; this continues until all cards have been removed. Finally, in Simba's A-Maze-ing Escape, you must guide Simba back into the jungle with a gang of rabid hyenas chasing you. If you'd rather not deal with these nuisances, there's a difficulty option that eliminates them. Disney's Activity Center: The Lion King also features a Magic Pool that allows you to view scenes from The Lion King. The game contains varying difficulty settings, recognizable icons, voice-overs and a cursor-driven interface.

Keeping Elroy out of trouble seems to be the running theme. It is fun to watch Elroy, like Dennis the Menace, as he contemplates using a slingshot to help him with the first activity, getting a chicken's egg so that he can bake a cake to replace the one that his trusty dog, Blue, ate. We watch Elroy steady his slingshot, only to lose his balance and fall out of the tree. Of course, Elroy bounces back and continues on with his chase to find the Technoloptera.

It's a race against the clock, because if Elroy and Sydney don't finish their project, they're headed for summer school. And, that's not cool. But first, we had to find the missing mutt, Blue. Steer Elroy away from lots of bad guys (Gordon Smugs is up to dastardly stuff, again) and get lost in a mysterious building as Elroy searches for Blue. A series of mazes, and doors which look identical, make this activity the most challenging of all.

Explorers of the New World Softkey Multimedia / Future Vision Multimedia [top]

Follow in the footsteps of three of history's most acclaimed travelers-Columbus, Magellan, and Cortes. Complete multimedia database of 60 additional explorers. All details based on historic facts. Fully interactive, realistic 3-D environments. Explorers of the New World, a feature-laden if one-sided exploration of the European journeys through North and South America, promises a multimedia investigation of the travels, findings and impact of age of discovery. Technically impressive bells and whistles. Future Vision Multimedia incorporates a well-thought-out, well-illustrated interface to introduce viewers to the adventurers who ransacked and reconnoitered the Americas from 1492 to the early 1600s. After an introduction touting the excitement and adventure to follow, the viewer finds a landscape peopled with costumed figures, and a few standard navigation tools: a compass (onscreen through all scenes) to jump from section to section; a timeline; a searchable database of explorers; a guided tour(nicely done) to explain maneuvering through the disk; and "Impact" -- a look at how items from Europe (cattle, smallpox) affected the Americas and (coffee, turkeys) vice versa. Explorers uses videotaped live actors to portray Ferdinand Magellan (first expedition to circle the Earth), Hernando Cortes (conqueror of the Aztecs), and Christopher Columbus (1492, sailed the ocean blue, etc.). Their expeditions are traced in depth; just click on hot spots along their mapped-out routes for narration and animated sequences that highlight the voyages. In addition, some spots on the route (an Aztec temple, for instance) open up into illustrated screens with dozens of hot spots detailing the lives and habits of the sailors, soldiers and indigenous people encountered along the way. A fourth live actor offers a lowly sailor's deck-level view of life (generally nasty, brutish and short) for the grunts who peopled the expeditions, and access to a database of 60 additional explorer biographies, route maps and a handful of period portraits. You can find the information easily through Explorer's well-crafted searchable index. Type in "Cuba" and you'll get a list of all articles with that word, organized by explorer -- useful as a tool to discover which spot was trampled by the most brigands over the years. The "Impact" section sums up Explorer's virtues and vices. Handsomely illustrated, loaded with hot spots, smoothly moving from screen to screen, it economically describes how items from one world affected the other. Click on the tattooed native, and the caption "smallpox" appears. This nasty culture-killer arrived with the explorers; estimates are that half the native population may have died after exposure to it. "This greatly reduced their ability to resist the European conquerors," the narrator burbles.

Felix The Cat's Cartoon Toolbox Big Top Productions [top]

This CD-ROM application allows people to create their own Saturday morning cartoons. The character Felix the Cat was licensed from Felix the Cat Productions. The characters were based on the 1950s version of Felix with The Professor, Rock Bottom, Poindexter, Master Cylinder and Vavoom. These are cartoons that show the full extent of how the program functions with a finished product. One is semi-finished, as it is used by the manual as a tutorial to instruct the user on the use of the program. Once the mini-toons are viewed, the only thing left is to create your own cartoon. To accomplish this, many, many tools are given, along with quite a few scenery areas and props. Picture it as a movie studio, ala Roger Rabbit's Toon Town, on CD and you are the writer, director, producer and script writer. One is only limited by the imagination of the user. That is one of the strongest points that this program has going for it. Children should be creating as they learn, directing the action, determining what the next step should be.

Fisher Price Dream Dollhouse / Time to Play Dollhouse Fisher-Price / Davidson & Associates [top]

This game is for children ages 3 to 7. When children enter the dollhouse, they are welcomed by three characters: Mrs. Baggs, Cowboy Bob, and an unnamed little girl, who can be anyone your child wants her to be. Children are also greeted with music, sounds, animations and voices inviting them to play. They can then choose any of six rooms to explore by simply clicking the mouse. In each room, a child can click on objects, some of which have special sounds or animations attached to them. Many objects can be moved, so that a child can put clothes on a dress form, put away groceries in the kitchen, or set up a tea party in the playroom. There is a container in each room full of toys and fun things the child can place in the room. The child can also select playmates by clicking on special buttons in the room. One special feature you won't find in a real dollhouse is the ability to magically redecorate with Sprites. Three fairies -- Sparkle, Flora, and Turnabout -- can move about the room (controlled by the child with the mouse). Twinkling lights and music show which objects the Sprites can change. Flora might change the bedroom rug and bedspread into a lush garden. Children find it fun to discover which things the Sprites can change and how they are transformed. Something else you won't find in an ordinary dollhouse is the secret mouse world. Mice leave a clue in each room, describing where their mouse hole is. By clicking on a piece of cheese, the child will hear the clue. She may need to move some objects in order to find the mice's secret place. Once inside the mouse hole, there is another room to explore. There is an ice cream factory in the kitchen's mouse hole, a mouse wedding in the playroom's mouse hole. Your child will learn skills such as conversation and storytelling, exploration, determining sequences, planning, seeking goals, following directions and most importantly, building early computer skills. It has more than 100 objects, such as characters, pets, furniture, toys and food, can be placed and moved anywhere. It's also included in the compilation called "PlayZone! Games for Girls".

Happy Birthday [Ru] Nikita [top]

This children's game became the winner of the Moscow International Computer Graphics and Animation Festival "Anigraph" in 1995. It's based on the well-known stories about Alan Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends. We find ourselves in a small, but very bright world, where he lives the bear Finney - the protagonist of the game - and just today he celebrates his birthday! At night all the friends gathered to congratulate the bear, but now he needs our help - envelopes with the invitations are still not sent, and friends still need something to entertain, and stocks of goodies, unfortunately, have dried up. Therefore, we, together with the main character hit the road in a large forest - to properly prepare for the celebration that no one is left unattended at the event. The game begins with a very nice video comic book, drawn with colored pencils, which is, in fact, one big spoiler - from the video, you can learn not only about the purpose of the trip, but also all the features of fairy world: the flowers bloom from a single touch, and on a large oak tree growing bumps strive to fall on the head of anyone who will pass under it. Even if you make a mistake in action, Finney will be transferred to the the beginning of the current puzzle. Worth noting the educational point - in the game is taught English, and if you click on any object or substance of the right mouse button, we hear the name of the subject and see how it's written. Moreover, the words should be remembered, because they will be required to perform most of the puzzles! Very pleasing to the eye are the nice "cartoon" drawings of characters and objects (especially fruits and berries - they're delicious!), and almost every one of them somehow responds to the touch of the cursor. Generally, the educational games for children are used by many Russian and European educational institution.

How the Leopard Got His Spots Rabbit Ears Productions, Inc / Microsoft Home [top]

This is an "interactive storytelling adventure" aimed at children ages four to nine. Rudyard Kipling's classic story comes to CD-ROM with animation, activities, sound effects, and music. Narrated by actor Danny Glover, How the Leopard Got His Spots features highlighted text and definitions for potentially troublesome words and phrases. Clicking items within the story triggers animations and sound effects, while mini-games range from painting forests to matching music. P.J. Rabbit serves as your child's guide to the story, with his rabbit-hole home leading to further information on Kipling and life in South Africa. It includes illustrations by Lori Lohstoeter and music by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. There's four interesting games. The first, is a traditional African strategy board game, called Mancala. With three difficulty levels, and the option of playing against PJ Rabbit or a friend, this game alone will draw many kids back for months. The second game, is a set of nine jigsaw puzzles. Each allows the user to set the difficulty level, by defining the number of pieces in each puzzle, anywhere from six to 42. The third game, is a variant on the common "concentration" turn-over-the-tiles-and-match-the-hidden-objects. Instead of visual objects, Leopard uses music clips from African tribal songs. The fourth and final game was a simple click-to-color the animals scene, demonstrating the impact of different camoflage patterns.

Kid Riffs IBM Multimedia Studio [top]

Think you have budding virtuosos under your roof? By all means, put them in front of a computer and have them play with Kid Riffs. This is a fun, hands-on music program designed to teach the basics of musical composition and performance. The disc sports a building metaphor in which different musical concepts are taught. You can try out more than 1200 different instruments in the Instrument Inn, or explore musical scales in the Scale Shack. The Rhythm Room presents the meaning of rhythm and how measure affects it, and you can add special effects and musical progressions to your tunes in the Mirror Mansion. All paths lead to the Concert Castle, where you can show off your new-found knowledge by producing tunes in a five-track recording studio. A bright idea bulb provides a convenient jumping-off point for exploring each building's specialty. The program suggests that you follow a specified path between the buildings, but it doesn't force the issue; you can explore them in any order you like. You can also ask the Kid Riff (the program's musically precocious host) for help and guidance along the way. Kid Riffs is a superb educational CD-ROM. It's right on the mark for children aged 5 to 11, but almost anyone will be able to achieve reasonable results with it. Even adults will have fun exploring music with this program because you'll find that your compostiions become increasingly complex as you master each concept. And if you have a wavetable sound card, Kid Riffs will take advantage of the higher quality sounds it produces.

Kiyeko and the Lost Night Ubisoft Entertainment S.A. / Ubisoft Entertainment [top]

This well-thought-out title is an interactive story beautifully narrated by Academy-Award winning actor Ben Kingsley. Kingsley, in the role of the Story Teller, offers a pleasant, pleasurable stroll through an Amazon village and its surroundings. The story follows jungle-boy Kiyeko's effort to retrieve the Night, stolen by a couple of snakes reminiscent of Disney's bad-guy animal characters (the sea witch's twin eels in The Little Mermaid spring immediately to mind), through 11 different animated scenes - from Kiyeko's village in the Amazon jungle, through the forest, to the snakes' lair, and back again. The well-drawn graphics, which integrate 3D backgrounds with 3D animations, and movie-style quality of the title are lovely to look at, regardless of your age. On the other hand, the treatment of the story as an animated movie makes for some problems in an interactive environment. Enter a scene, and the story, which appears in text at the top of the screen, takes several minutes to read. Even with Kingley's lilting voice in accompaniment, the pace is Proustian, and will seem especially slow to an impatient five-year-old who may be more used to the frenetic energy of Saturday morning cartoons. It's certainly well-designed, and everything works; there aren't any incomplete, fuzzy, or jumpy areas, and the product was obviously a labor of love on the part of the folks at Ubi Soft. If yours is a leisurely household - or you just want to cultivate a little more of the stuff - this title might just be the ticket. It's certainly an alternative to watching The Lion King for the 1,000th time. There's over 8000 hand drawn frames creating a rich, full-screen animated environment, 45 minutes of original music and sound effects, and 220 hilarious click-on animations to enjoy. Reading and foreign language learning with voices and text in English, Spanish, French, Italian and German. It's based on Vladimir Hulpach's "The Snakes Who Stole the Night." Developed in participation with the National Center for Cinematography and the French Ministry of Industry.

Lamb Chop Loves Music Media Station [top]

Based on the classic story, The Musicians of Breman told with the addition of Lamb Chop's witticisms and silliness. In this retelling of the story, different animals learn about the members of the different instruments of the orchestra. The Raccoon gets involved in the Percussion family, Cat gets into the woodwinds (mainly the clarinet), Lamb Chop decides upon the flute, because who wants to lug a piano around on their back. It's great! What this reviewer loved about the telling of this story is that, when the narration was finished and the background music was playing, the student could click around each individual screen to find fun surprises and some silly musical jokes. The grand finale of the story comes when the user can choose the style of music they want for the concert finale - they can choose from classical and jazz to rock and marching band music. The basis of the retelling of the story is to expose the "new to music" user to the different families of the orchestra, the sounds that the instruments in each family can produce, and some ideas and thoughts about the concepts of practice, dedication to music, and the love of music. Children learn about more than 50 accurately rendered musical instruments. Fun and Challenging activities include Musical Memory, Find the Sound, Song Jumble, Wacky Musicians and Stop the Robbers. Features dozens of popular children's songs.

Let's Explore The Farm allows kids 3-8 (or any age) to explore the idyllic farm, as depicted in movies - orchards, horse, gardens, cows, chickens, waterwheel, fields, a pond - it's all here. Kids learn about the operation of a farm in over 40 different locations around the farm, with their guide Buzzy The Knowledge Bug. Go inside the red barn & milk a cow, or check out the growing vegetables in the garden, watch the waterwheel grind away, or peek inside the chicken coop. Items in each location can be clicked on for either amusing animations, or to ask "What is This?" which will take them directly to the encyclopedia page describing that item. The encyclopedia has more than 200 descriptions in it. It also has an index, to jump directly back to interesting items, and the pictures in the index take you to a spot in the farm that the item can be found. The encyclopedia is text, but Buzzy can also read the text for young players. In addition, the game has 5 Time To Play mini-games. The Coloring Book has 15 different pictures to color and print out. Trivia contains 100 farm-related questions with answers within the game - for pre-readers, Buzzy will read the question out loud and also provide hints. There are 3 difficulty levels for this game. In Eggs Away, you have to catch the eggs that the chickens lay before they hit the ground - catch enough and you move onto the next level. But you have to watch out for the rats. There's also the Find It game, where the game randomly picks 10 items (out of 110 possible) within the game and you go find them around the farm. This game has 3 difficulty levels. Finally, there's Spell It. This spelling game has three difficulty levels - at the easiest level you just add a single missing letter to a word (there's a picture of the farm-related item); at the medium level you have to figure out the word based on a picture; at the hardest level there's no picture. The on-screen cows indicate your progress in the harder levels. .

Let's Explore The Jungle Humongous Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This game allows children to explore Humongous versions of the South American, African and Southeast Asian jungles, and learn about some of the animal and plant life there. Like "The Airport" and "The Farm" titles, this game features Buzzy the Knowledge Bug as a guide. He reads aloud questions, answers, and the names of objects. In addition, he provides tips and suggestions and points out interesting facts. Kids can explore the three environments, each of which has quite a few locations, where they can click on things for fun animations or instead ask "What Is This?" and go to a micro-encyclopedia for each item which describes the item and shows where they are from. The 210-item encyclopedia also has an index, so kids can jump right to items - clicking on the picture on the page will take you a place where that bug, bird, plant, or animal can be found. The encyclopedia has text, but will also read to the child if they wish - you can have it read each word by just holding the cursor over the word too. The pages also have colored hyper-linked words that are topics of other pages in the encyclopedia. The game also has 5 mini-games, such as Trivia or Find It (shown game-related images and then have to go find them), or a 15-page coloring book (which can be printed out and has mixable colors) and Jungle Jumble (spelling/unscramble game). The Anteater Feeder mini-game is just for fun, an 100-level arcade version of the old carnival shooting game except the weapon is an anteater's tongue and you eat bugs. These games have difficulty settings, to make things harder or easier.

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

This is the third game in the series based on the children's educational books by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. This game is based on The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor and the TV episode The Magic School Bus Gets Eaten. In this adventure, Ms. Frizzle and her class are headed to the ocean on a mission to explore zones and answer three clues that will lead to a sunken treasure. Traveling by submarine bus, the group will make stops at the Coral Reef, the Open Ocean, the Deep Ocean, the Hot Vents, the Kelp Forest, and more. At each stop the player can access activities, reports and experiments related to that zone by clicking on items nearby. There are also a number of zone-themed minigames that utilize both the mouse and the arrow keys. Among them are: Crab Chase - the player must click to move a crab around on the beach and collect food while avoiding a predatory seagull; Ride the Tide - the player helps a fish swim through the tidal changes by moving with the arrow keys and jumping over rocks with the space bar; Kelp Clean-Up - collect and bag up garbage while avoiding sharks; Food Chain Game - a jigsaw puzzle featuring colorful diatoms; Lantern Fish Game - the player must help a lantern fish gulp down its prey while moving through the ocean. There are two ways to move around; from the inside of the bus the player can click on the steering wheel and the gearshift, and while outside the bus he is able to scroll from screen to screen by selecting the arrows or clicking the submarine cursor. Zones may be visited in any order. Once the player has collected enough clues and travels to the area where the treasure is buried, he will find a treasure scanner to uncover it, and the game is won. The educational focus is on scientific exploration and experimentation, rather than simple fact-finding. This is the only game where the classroom can't be visited. Also, this is the first game that has activities to do in the back of the school bus and you can save the game in multiple files.

Microsoft 3D Movie Maker Microsoft Kids [top]

Using this program, directors are able to place 3D characters in pre-made environments, add actions, sound effects, music, text, speech, and special effects then show these movies off to friends, family, and the world. The program features two helper characters to guide users through the various features of the program. The character McZee provides help throughout the studio while his assistant Melanie provides various tutorials. Creating animation in 3D Movie Maker is a straightforward process, allowing younger users to create movies with ease. By default, 40 actors/actresses are available, each with 4 different costumes and a number of actions, as well as 20 different props. Eleven different scenes are available to the user, each containing several different camera angles. Many sample voice and MIDI music clips are included, but extra voices can be recorded using a microphone, and external wav and MIDI files can be imported. The way movies are made in 3D Movie Maker is not like that of, for example, a video camera. A video camera works by recording images (frames) in quick succession. 3D Movie Maker stores the positions of the characters and objects for each frame. It moves at about 6 to 8 frames per second, which makes the movies choppier than expected. The finished movie, however, can only be viewed inside 3D Movie Maker using the virtual auditorium or the studio, unless converted to a video file format with a third-party utility. There is the option to explore the backstage area in a first person perspective and on a little scavenger hunt which entails finding missing pages from a talent book.

Aimed at pre-school children, Sierra's Mixed-up Mother Goose Deluxe is planted firmly in familiar ground for its age group. It is based on nursery rhymes so there are appearances by Little Bo Peep, Little Jack Horner, Jack and Jill and Humpty Dumpty, to name but a few. The game begins by offering the child a choice of character to guide through their journey, and at a click of the mouse button the chosen character starts out tucked up in bed. A short dream sequence later he or she is deposited outside the house of Mother Goose who laments that her rhymes are mixed up because the various nursery rhyme characters have lost essential items to complete their rhymes. There are 18 mini quests in all which involve finding such items as Jack and Jill's pail, Bo Peep's Sheep, etc. These are scattered around the game world as are the nursery rhyme characters. The child must wander around to meet the characters and learn what they are missing, then find the lost items and return them to their owners. Returning items initiates an animated sequence accompanied by a lively musical rendition of the respective nursery rhyme. This was yet another and the last updated version of the game. This version has further improved SVGA graphics and a bonus audio CD, as well as the introduction of different melodies and styles of music. In addition, full digital speech was introduced in this version.

Pantsylvania: The Kingdom of the Fancy Pants Headbone Interactive / Soft Key [top]

This has 50 activities and will give kids "a leg up on learning" and plenty of puns. The first stop is the gates of the city, where 10 kooky-looking buildings loom on the horizon. Click on any and travel to places like Symfunny Hall, the Fancy Pants Factory, or the House of Beauty. The "pants" theme loosely unites these locales: peculiar pants (for elephants and others equally hard to fit) are manufactured at the factory and shipped out at the Hub of Transportation; workers live in Pantsylburbia and relax at Pocket Park. At each destination five characters await as tour guides, each in charge of a specific activity. Kingamajig always has a song to sing, while Clyde the bird leads a game called Seek 'n' Find, a computerized version of find-the-hidden-objects-in-a-picture, one kids will adore. For an extra challenge, race the clock. In Bunji the frog's "Poke 'n' Prod" game, kids can make strange yet fun things happen. In each game Bunji doles out item after item that can be moved and played with. In "Making Geology Happen," for instance, kids can cause a volcano to erupt, unleash a tornado, start a plague of locusts, make it snow or rain, and more. In other scenarios, Bunji lets users design a house, compose music, cook, babysit, be a mad scientist, and zip and zoom with vehicles ranging from jets to bumper cars. Bunji, Clyde, and Kingamajig are leaders of Song & Games screens, while Velma the pig and Monkie-Sue direct Fact & Fiction screens. Velma is in charge of Fancy Facts-short, sweet bits of trivia with categories such as Pancakes Around the World, Scary Things Demystified, and Animal Transformations. Finally, Monkie Sue's Furry Tales are short scenes waiting for a director. Point to a person and he or she talks; move an object and the action starts. My favorite is Social Studies Class, in which the aforementioned Mr. Smarty Pants delivers his puns. As if that weren't enough, there's a bona fide bad boy named Rotten Wrench lurking in Pantsylvania. He appears from time to time to cause trouble, and he's got a secret as well. Can you find it?

Reading Blaster Jr. / Reading Blaster: Ages 4–6 Davidson and Associates [top]

Learning to read is one of the most rewarding—and important—tasks a child can accomplish. Laying the groundwork for achieving reading skills can be done in a variety of ways, but one of the best has to be through the use of multimedia reading CD-ROM programs. Reading programs provide an enjoyable atmosphere for children to practice reading skills. Children can repeat areas on which they need to work and hear phonetic sounds. Most reading programs contain at least some phonetic aspects, which many experts agree is key to developing reading skills. Programs focusing on reading are available for preschoolers through junior high school students. For preschool children, programs such as Reading Blaster Jr. and Ready To Read With Pooh feature tasks such as matching letters with their sounds, learning about rhymes, and learning about the sounds letter combinations make. Children will need a strong grasp of the alphabet before they can use most reading programs. Reader Blaster Jr. has a few entertainment options as well. A handful of songs can be played, and the Silly Sentence Creator provides a fun introduction to sentence structure.

Yearn2Learn: Master Snoopy's World Geography Image Smith [top]

This is a game that attempts to teach children about geography. There are two separate lessons in this game. The first teaches children about the stares of the USA, where they are and what their names are. The second teaches children about other countries in the world and where they are located. The 'Geography Puzzle Game' is the game that teaches the US states. It has two modes of play, easy and hard. Both modes of play break the states of mainland USA (i.e. not including Alaska & Hawaii) into four zones. The player selects a zone and is presented with a sliding tile type of puzzle in which the tiles are in the shape of the states in the selected zone. In the easy mode all the player has to do is place the tile into its correct position and the game will display and speak the state's name. When all states have been positioned correctly Snoopy walks on screen waving the US flag and music plays. In the hard mode the player again places the state in its correct position, upon which the game displays a list of all the states in the zone, so that the player can choose the correct name for the state that has just been placed. The Great Country Shoot game takes place in a circus in front of a globe and is a 1 or 2 player game. The player is asked to help one of the Snoopy characters find a country. The player jumps into a cannon, the globe spins, the player clicks on a region with their mouse and the character is fired from the cannon to parachute down to the selected location. If the player has selected the correct location the player gets a message of congratulation and is shown the character standing in the designated country. The gameplay changes depending upon the level that has been achieved by the player(s). In level 1 when the player is asked to locate a country the correct region of globe flashes red/green before the globe spins so that all the player must do is click on that region as it comes into view. In level 2 the player proceeds as in level 1 but when the region has been selected correctly the player must then select the correct country from the regional map. Level 3 is the same as level 2 but with a wider range of countries. Levels 4 to 7 have progressively more obscure countries to find and give no hints as to which region of the globe they are in. There are ten questions per level and at the end of the level the player is given their score.

Cyberstrip Poker Rapture Interactive [top]

This is a futuristic, sci-fi themed strip poker game set in the distant future. Each player starts out with $1000, minimum bet is $5 and maximum bet is set as $100. Every time the opponent's cash reaches zero, she takes off one article of clothing, and the player is treated to a full-screen video. The player is only allowed to discard three out of five cards in this game. There is no call button; the player has to pay attention anytime the opponent raises, and manually add the last bet and the raise amount. To fold, the player needs to reduce the bet amount to below $5 and "Fold" will appear as the amount of the bet. There is a hide/panic button (the atomic symbol looking button in the bottom right corner of the screen) which quickly launches a Macintosh-looking screen.

D.P.S. Zenbu [J] Alice Soft [top]

This is, as the name implies (meaning D.P.S. All), a complete collection of scenarios originally on FM Towns & PC-98 (total of 15) from all the previous D.P.S./Dream Program System series entries: D.P.S. (1989), D.P.S. SG (1990), D.P.S. SG Set 2 (1991), D.P.S. SG Set 3 (1991), Super D.P.S. (1992). No changes have been made to graphics or gameplay in any of the scenarios. As a bonus, the game also contains the 16th scenario, entitled Megumi's Story. The scenario is non-interactive (the player simply has to press a button to scroll the text) and depicts the first sexual experiences (some of them violent) of an innocent teenage girl. Each is a collection of three short scenarios, which are unrelated to each other story-wise and can be played separately. Those scenarios are presented as cartridges played on a fictional console named Dream Program System. Each scenario allows the player to choose between two different protagonists, or two different personalities for the protagonist. All of the scenarios feature nudity and/or sexual situations. The gameplay is essentially that of a visual novel. At almost every screen, the player is given a number of choices, which correspond to answers or actions, according to the situation. Some choices are required to trigger the next event and advance in the game, others are "neutral", having no effect on the progress, while a few are considered "bad" by the game, leading to Game Over. Scenes, dialogue choices, and story events may vary slightly or significantly, depending on the choice of character in the beginning of a scenario. In 2008, the collection was made freeware as well as the individual games.

Eve Burst Error C's Ware / Himeya Soft, Inc [top]

The game is set in modern-day Japan. You control two characters: a young, seemingly careless private investigator Kojiroh, and the special agent Marina. Kojiroh has been struggling to make a living as a lone PI, but now luck seems to smile to him: the director of the Eldian International School, Mr. Ko, asks him to find a missing painting, supposedly of great value. At the same time, Marina is hired by the ambassador of the fictional Middle East republic Eldia to protect his daughter Mayako from terrorists. Switching between Kojiroh and Marina, you gradually find out the connection between the two cases and plunge deeper into a grand mystery that involves political struggle, scientific discoveries, and horrifying murders. The game is a traditional Japanese adventure: you interact with the world by choosing appropriate commands from the menu (which is different for every location). There are no puzzles to solve, and you make progress in the game by examining the environments and talking to the characters. At certain points, you'll have to switch between the two characters and make them cooperate. While the original version of the game is classified as a hentai game for adults only, when the game was released in America all explicit sexual content was removed and censored resulting in no explicit nudity and no sex scenes but still contained a lot of sexual innuendo in the dialogues and images of half-naked girls. The Asenheim Project, a group of amateur translators, later released playable online versions of both the edited and the uncensored editions of the game.

The story unfolds as you view video "kiosks" and gain entrance to secret corridors and rooms where you learn more about the inner thoughts and experiences of Malcolm Stevens, a psychotic who has the ability to read people's minds and sexual fantasies.

Even though it was released in 1995, it still sat at the top of the sales charts in the "adult games" category for years to come. Its star, hard core actress Sunset Thomas, won several awards for her performance in this game as well as in the movie version.

Rance 4.1: Okusuri Koujou o Sukue! (Rance 4: Save the Medicine Plant) Alice Soft [top]

This is a side-story in Rance series, released shortly after the fourth game, but dedicated to an entirely different quest. All kinds of troubles are happening to a factory where a new Happiness Medicine is being developed. The mercenary Rance is hired by the manager to investigate the source of these troubles. First task: clear the factory of the monsters. This is a RPG with turn-based combat and strong adventure elements (menu with command verbs such as "Examine", "Talk", etc., at every given screen). Unlike the previous Rance games, the battles do not allow free movement on the screen, and are carried out in a more traditional Japanese-style way. There is no physical movement in the game; hostile areas (dungeons) are also explored by choosing menu commands. As in all other Rance games, there are explicit sex scenes in this game. In 2008, the game was made freeware. In 2012, an English fan translation was released.

The hero continues to investigate the weird occurrences connected to the Happiness Medicine Factory. Since the story picks up directly where it ended in the sequel, Rance begins his adventure already commanding an all-female squad called the Angel Team. Nothing has changed gameplay-wise; as before, interaction with the game world is done through menu commands everywhere, including dungeons. The combat system has also remained exactly the same as in predecessor. In 2008, the game was made freeware. In 2014, an English fan translation was released.

Space Sirens 2: Megababes from Ajia PIXIS Interactive, Inc. [top]

This is an interactive adult title completely told from a first-person perspective. The many adult situations in this game feature nudity and graphic sex. Set in a futuristic sci-fi world, the beginning of the game has the titular space sirens capturing the player's space craft. After an arcade segment where the player fights off a wave of aliens, the space sirens appear and incapacitate the protagonist. However, as he is a person of great respect and renowned, the space sirens are willing to spare his life if he is able to pleasure them sexually. Failure to do so means death. The game play consists of interactive movies where the player must make the correct choices in order for his particular space siren to achieve orgasm. Using what Pixis describes as a TFUI (Touch Feel User Interface) players can manipulate the NPC in various different ways. Icons can be used in two different ways: the hand can stroke and massage or be used to remove clothing; the penis can be used in a standing position or a lying position. Furthermore, the NPC can be turned around 180 degrees for complete visibility. Touching a body part with the respective icon at the right time will play a movie that will raise the siren's pleasure meter; when doing so at the wrong time the player will receive an admonition from the siren to slow down. If at any time the player reaches climax before the siren the player will lose one of his three turns.

Role-Playing Games

Anvil of Dawn DreamForge Intertainment, Inc. / New World Computing, Inc. [top]

Anvil was one of the last "non 3d" first person roleplaying games(i.e.-Eye of the Beholder). Players start the game by choosing one of five characters, each with their own special gifts in qualities including strength, agility, and magic use. Once their identity is sorted out, players will use the game's pleasingly simple first person, turn-based interface to move through Tempest, a war torn world that (as usual) requires a hero (or heroine—and I commend New World for their inclusion of two female player characters) to sort things out. As the game progresses, characters will face dozens of enemies, all of them unique, not the typical Tolkienesque denizens of most RPGs. Weapons range from commonplace items such as spears, bows, axes and swords to magical armament that enables players to stand up against some of the game's more powerful opponents. Twenty-five spells are also available in seven different disciplines (Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, Lightning, Flesh, and Void) for characters wily enough to learn them. This title walks the line between the combat and puzzles genres very delicately, and most adventurers will find the game maintains an enjoyable balance throughout. There's no doubt that Anvil of Dawn reformulates something that's been done before, but in the end, it's a pretty good rehash. The game's entertaining storyline, easy-to-understand statistics, and functional game balance earn it a place on any beginning RPG fan's shelf. On the flip side, those who are looking for an RPG with depth of play and characters that can be highly personalized will probably walk away from this title disappointed.

Blind Justice Illymani Designs / R.A.W. Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Blind Justice is a post-modern fantasy role-playing game. You are a shapeshifter - a genetic experiment which has managed to escape an "induced artificial selection" test. During the game, you unveil the religious system which underlies your ability to shapeshift. With each new form, your soul reverts back into a previous form - into a life that hadn't been fulfilled. Initially, the government suspects that you were the leader of the resistance in a previous life. In an attempt to salvage information, you are given the ability to shapeshift. Your escape gives the government every motivation for hunting you down. It's a game that foreshadows Dreamforge's 1998 classic Sanitarium in plot and style, though only half as good.
