11th Hour, The Trilobyte / Virgin Interactive Entertainment [top]

The 11th Hour is a puzzle computer game with a horror setting that took 4 years to produce. It is the sequel to the 1992 game The 7th Guest. It used a new graphic engine to render the game images, named the "Groovie" engine. The game takes place 70 years after the events of the first game. Robin Morales, a big time TV reporter, comes to the village of Harley to investigate the early happenings at the Stauf mansion. Upon entering the house, however, she becomes trapped in yet another of Stauf's games. Her boyfriend, Carl Dennings, will strive to rescue Robin and will be controlled by the player. Disc 1 came with wad file levels for Doom and Heretic modeled after the Stauf Mansion.

3 Skulls of the Toltecs Revistronic / Life Line Ent. / Midway Games West / Warner Interactive [top]

3 Skulls is a very funny spoof of the old Clint Eastwood spaghetti western 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly'. They have included so many take-offs on classic westerns (including recognizable voice impersonations) that you'll never be able to think about those movies in quite the same way again. Our hero is Fenimore Fillmore, a young "honest and well-intentioned" (well, sort of) cowpoke in 1866 Arizona. En route to stake a claim and make his fortune, he is about to stop at Big Town to get a drink for his horse and maybe himself, when he accidentally stumbles onto an ambush in progress. And there he learns of a vast undiscovered Toltec treasure that awaits whoever finds the 3 Golden Skulls. But to find that treasure, he must first deal with a corrupt priest and a larcenous soldier, not to mention Harvard educated Apaches, lustful parrots, grossly incompetent bankers, Anti-Alcoholic League women, amnesiac Mexican revolutionary generals, and many, many other hilarious characters. Sidesplitting humor and happy music, with clever puzzles that are appropriate for the storyline and an easy to use point & click interface. The game is very rare in retail, especially in North America where only a few hundred copies exist, but it was later included with the developer's next game involving Fenimore Fillmore called Wanted: A Wild Western Adventure (in Europe it's Fenimore Fillmore: The Westerner).

9: The Last Resort Tribeca Interactive / GT Interactive Software Corp. [top]

This is a surreal point and click adventure game in which you have just inherited a large mansion and have to get rid of the 9 evil muses that have taken it over. The gameplay is first person view and similar to Myst. It is most notable for involving some of the most famous people ever in a computer game including Robert De Niro, Cher, James Belushi, Christopher Reeve and a couple of guys out of Aerosmith. 9 features a large cast of characters, and is rich in character interaction. The game world is populated by bizarre environments, objects and creatures. The game world is designed to represent the limits of man's imagination. There is a strong musical theme running through the entire game, as evidenced by a majority of the puzzles, including the main recurring puzzle. There is also a strong element of humour in the game. The gameplay, coupled with the extremely high hardware requirements and the high cost of the game led to very few sales, and the game was remaindered. 9 features a large number of puzzles, of varying difficulty. It is considered to be a very difficult game overall. Most of the puzzles relate to the musical theme, provided mainly by Aerosmith. Many of the puzzles are based in a specific musical instrument, such as the drums, guitar, and organ; however, no musical knowledge of these instruments is required to enjoy this game. The gameplay centers on an organ upon which the player can play musical codes. On each "floor" of the resort, the player finds a code sheet containing instructions for playing a short musical piece on the organ. However, each sheet extends the code making it more difficult to interpret. This culminates in the final puzzle in which the player must be thoroughly familiar with the code. This concept has been regarded by players as either a blessing or a curse.

Ace Ventura 7th Level / Bomico Entertainment Software [top]

Borrowing from the Ace Ventura cartoon series, the game features all the same gags, mannerisms, and obnoxiousness from the world's famous pet detective - the kind of stuff that's so stupid, you have no choice but to laugh. And it's the humor that keeps the game afloat. Once again, Ace is on the case, this time traveling the earth looking for a lost creature. A lot of it is so simple, you'll figure out that the game is partly designed for young children. The objects and scenes have that bright, bulky Fisher Price quality. And if you ever actually get stuck, a special button on Ace's watch delivers audio clues that take out most of the guesswork. The various puzzle-filled scenes are sporadically broken up by arcade-lite action. Slightly challenging tasks like swimming through the murky waters of the deep, avoiding trash and oil slicks, and getting in a basic laser fight are a nice way to mix things up. This is a fun but short game.

Adventures Of Pinocchio, The Powerhouse Entertainment, Kushner-Locke Interactive / IBM [top]

This is an interactive movie game based on the live action movie featuring Martin Landau as Geppetto, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and the puppet effects of Jim Henson's Creature Shop. After Pinocchio realizes his dream of becoming a real boy, the evil Lorenzini kidnaps him and turns him back into a puppet. You must help Pinocchio's creator, Geppetto, find and rescue him. You'll go through Pinocchio's home town, row a boat through monster-infested waters and visit Terra Magica, the fair where Lorenzini turns boys into donkeys. To succeed, you'll have to dodge deadly traps, solve puzzles and outwit Lorenzini's conniving henchmen. Sometimes, you'll have to turn yourself into a puppet, a fish, a bird or even a donkey to rescue Pinocchio. Along the way you must collect six passwords, each reflecting a lesson in morality that Pinocchio learns. You are aided by live-action guides Lumina and Candlewick who will offer different suggestions as to what to do but you must decide. There are plenty of wide-screen scenes from the movie and a ton of original footage. The game comes on 4 CDs ("The Village", "The Forest", "The Sea", and "Terra Magica") because of the FMV (though the video takes up only half the screen), each disk representing another world to explore. You must make plot choices and solve puzzles through clicking on the interface around the FMV or on the FMV itself. It allows for microphone input also through voice recognition technology that allows the user to control the events on the screen through voice alone.

Alien Incident Housemarque Ltd. / Gametek [top]

This is a very traditional 2D point'n'click adventure game. It includes lots of funny Star Wars references. You play the role of a teenager called Benjamin who's visiting his uncle's house at Halloween. His uncle, a home-grown scientist, attempts to activate his latest invention, the wormhole spawner. Amazingly enough, it works and rips open a wormhole to another galaxy, transporting an alien spacecraft to Earth. The aliens kidnap your uncle and, surprisingly, your mission is to rescue him (and the world, but you knew that already). It's a fun, unassuming science fiction adventure that is great for young adventurers due to its family-oriented plot and easy puzzles. It must have been developed with the fledgling gamer in mind, and in that sense seems to be going in the right direction. Along with its clever animation and interesting storyline, it reinforces to the new or younger gamer the idea that fun, challenging gameplay doesn't have to include violence. The tone of the game is well established very early and nicely maintained throughout. There are the usual gathering and intelligent deployment of assorted objects for puzzles.

Amber: Journeys Beyond Hue Forest Entertainment / Graphic Simulations [top]

This tight and self-contained ghost story begins when you visit a fellow scientist named Roxy. An avid paranormal researcher, Roxy has chosen her new home because she believes it is haunted. Using a host of unreliable detection devices, she plans to use this house as a laboratory. Her goal: proving the existence of psychic phenomena. Driving out to the house in a thunderstorm, you are run off the road by a shimmering apparition and are sent crashing into a lake. In short order, you discover other things have gone wrong - Roxy is in the garage, apparently dead. It's up to you to save yourself and the overzealous scientist from the forces lurking in the house. Patience and close attention to detail are musts for playing. Critical items are sometimes hard to spot, and one or two of the scenes take place in very dark locales. When you can see, the graphics are crisp and drawn with a faint gothic sensibility, surrounding the player in a milieu of creepy sounds and ghost-catching gadgets. Each story is told through a different graphic style that instantly conveys the mood related to its particular ghost, from the faded photographs that make up the memory of a woman who died during World War II to the strangely distorted perceptions of a gardener obsessed by UFOs, or the watery images that form a child's sad reminiscences of a distant, snowy winter. The game is especially suited to beginning or younger gamers, as the problem-solving challenges are on the simple side. Even so, it's spooky and engaging, a worthy electronic heir to campfire stories everywhere. Although it was the only game the developer made, it set the early standard for the many indie horror developers today.

Ash. [K] Himeya Soft / Game Box [top]

Originally on PC-98 in 1994, the entire game is graphical text adventure similar to a magazine oriented kind of psychological test questions (that is to select a branch, then will go to a, b, then will choose to branch from b). Finally, according to your choice you will achieve a different outcome. The whole game has 22 outcomes, although there is a difference in nature, but it does not matter if it's good or bad. Even to reach the relatively poor outcome, it's very intriguing. To reach a good outcome does not necessarily make people happy. Moreover, each triggered outcome seems to be able to think deeply. In fact, not only the outcome, but the game itself has some philosophical options. Even a simple yes or no, can to some extent reflects the thinking player tendencies. Similarly, the game will result in game over in many, many places, and some even choose an option to only walk into a dead end.

Avarice: The Final Saga [OS/2] Continuous Software Systems / Stardock Corporation [top]

Avarice was the first 32-bits game released for OS/2, the operating system developed by Microsoft and IBM (later, by IBM exclusively). Billed as "the Myst killer", Avarice is a sort of high-res Zork, with digitized characters and pre-rendered graphics made with POV-Ray. You weren't even aware that the mysterious and famous billionaire Mr. O'Hara was your uncle until you received a surprise letter from him inviting you to his island retreat. When you arrive, you are not alone, you and a number of other guests who are referred to as "contestants" soon discover that your uncle is missing. Rumors abound that your uncle has hidden millions of dollars in rare jewels somewhere in his vast mansion. But a deeper mystery surrounds his disappearance and his house seems to be hiding a much more sinister secret. Now you must discover what happened to your uncle and what his plans were. The fate of the entire world may hang in the balance. Avarice is arguably the most advanced adventure game ever developed for the PC on any platform. While similar to Myst and Riven in basic user interface, Avarice uses the built in power of OS/2 to create a truly dynamic world. Everything in the Avarice world can be touched and manipulated. More than just an adventure/mystery game, Avarice's goal is to make the player feel immersed in its game world. The library is a real library with real books that can be read from cover to cover. Food can be picked up, broken apart, burned, cooked, eaten, etc. The only limit in Avarice is your imagination!

Azrael's Tear Intelligent Games / Mindscape [top]

In Azrael's Tear you play a "raptor", a futuristic thief that raids ancient archeological sites that have as yet been untouched by man for hundreds of years and are full of treasures. Recently, due to geological disturbances, the supposed home of the Holy Grail is partially unearthed in northern Scotland. You go in to raid it of it's treasures and if it does exist the Holy Grail. When you enter, the entrance caves in behind you and you are stuck inside. Ah well, nothing to do but continue on to find what you came for. The game utilizes a true 3d engine to display your surroundings, as in Quake. It's heavy on puzzles and light on combat. As you move further on into the ruins you'll encounter ghosts of the inhabitants and hints as to what happened to cause the ruins that surround you now.

Bad Day On The Midway, The Residents' Inscape [top]

This is the second CD-ROM based on the works of The Residents, one of the world's most eccentric bands. Designed by inSCAPE, the same company that brought us unique titles like The Dark Eye, this is a compelling and unique adventure game that is unlike any game before, or since. In this multimedia extravaganza, you take on the role of a little boy named Timmy who visits a run-down amusement park. Quickly you learn that all is not well on the midway - intrigue, blackmail and murder are everywhere. To survive, you have to leave Timmy at one point and "soul-jump" to other persons by clicking on them. Each of the characters on the midway has their own story, each illustrated by a different comic artist. Some of the stories can be learned only while playing Timmy; others, by visiting different attractions. Soon it becomes clear that every character is following a separate agenda - part of it revolves around the comatose fascist owner of the midway and his hidden treasure. Later, people get killed and the "IRS Man" shows up to investigate tax fraud. inSCAPE, the company that produced the games, have made sure no two games can be the same, and you won't be able to see the entire story in one play - or even in ten. It's best not to approach it as a game, but as a multimedia experience - try to see as much as you can in one go. If you do, the story will slowly start to emerge. If you don't get anywhere at all, you can watch many of the movies from the Credits screen. While the graphics are blocky and only 256-color, the talent of the various artists like Dave McKean make up for it. The only downside is that there are no subtitles for the sometimes very hard to understand voice narrations. Instead, the lower quarter of the screen displays a stream of consciousness that reminds of Leisure Town (warning - explicit content). If you enjoyed Freak Show or The Dark Eye, you will likely also enjoy this surrealistic and strangely compelling journey into the macabre world.

Bad Mojo Pulse Entertainment / Acclaim [top]

No doubt one of the most unique and disturbing adventures ever, Bad Mojo's premise is refreshingly original: you are a misanthropic, selfish young man who's turned into a cockroach by the powers that be, to put yourself "in others' shoes," euphemistically speaking. Gameplay is restricted to the moving cursors (but hey, you *are* a roach), but there are many ingenious puzzles that require thought, intuition, and astute observation. The acting is over-the-top, but tolerable. Movie snippets appear throughout the game to provide clues and move the plot along. Overall, Bad Mojo offers a unique premise, great graphics, and inventive gameplay that provides plenty of thought-provoking puzzles without an inventory (hey, you are a roach) - making it a must-play for all adventure gamers. It is probably NOT for everyone due to a disturbing focus and some downright disgusting graphics. If you are not easily disgusted, though, you will likely find Bad Mojo one of the most original adventure games you'll have ever played. And best of all, Got Game Entertainment re-released the game in 2004 as Bad Mojo Redux, all updated for latest Windows version. Nothing about the game was changed, but players will be treated to "never before seen" footage on the making of the game, interviews with the designers, movie commentaries and more.

Barbie Magic Fairy Tales: Barbie As Rapunzel Media Station, Inc. / Mattel Interactive [top]

This game retells the fairytale of Rapunzel, a beautiful baby locked in a high tower by a jealous witch. Barbie plays Rapunzel and the story is told by Celinda, the fairy godmother. The story is in the form of an animated book with short written passages that are read by the narrator, as the words are spoken the words are highlighted. This is then followed by a short animated sequence which carries the action on to the next chapter. The game can be played in two ways, one as a read-along book in which the puzzles can be skipped, the other as a storybook game. Typically Rapunzel must collect things to allow her to progress on her travels, these usually come in the form of rewards for either helping a character or for completing a puzzle. It contains six mini-games, four of which must be played to complete the story. The other two, Dress-Up and a memory game, are available in Rapunzel's tower. Though you don't have to complete these to win the game, you can play them over and over again. Guide Rapunzel to a happy ending with her prince, Galen, by defeating the witch and breaking her broom.

Batman: Partners in Peril Inverse Ink [top]

View a living comic book on your computer screen with Batman: Partners in Peril. As the story progresses frame-by-frame (either at the hands of the computer or under your manual command) you'll see over 80 animations ranging from the simplicity of a shot from one of the Penguin's umbrellas to the fluency of QuickTime animation segments taken directly from an early Batman cartoon series. Certain frames will contain file folders that help provide further clues to the plot. The story involves the "perilous partnership" of the Riddler, the Joker and the Penguin as they do what they do best--terrorize Gotham City. If that isn't enough, Catwoman has decided that she wants to play, too. Batman and Robin certainly have their work cut out for them on all 23 animated pages. Luckily, Batgirl decides to help out as well. And where would the Dynamic Duo be without a few tips from Alfred?

Big Bug Bang: Le Retour de Commander Blood [Fr] Cryo Interactive Entertainment / Microfolie's [top]

The third part of the Commander Blood trilogy, this game is set at the very dawn of time: Mere nanoseconds after the Big Bang. This is where the time-travelling shenanigans of the second game ended up. Now you, Commander Blood are the only evolved lifeform in the entire universe, and it's up to you to correct the problems you've caused and guide the development of all other life. You start the game with a few amoeba-esque creatures at your disposal. Find a planet to put them on, then take care of them, help them migrate to other worlds, evolve and mutate. Big Bug Bang uses the exact same interface and many of the same graphical sequences as its predecessor, Commander Blood. It is a surreal, galaxy-spanning, humourous sci-fi adventure. This was a very low-profile game, released with minimal advertising in France and Canada only.

Bill Nye the Science Guy: Stop the Rock Pacific Interactive [top]

A giant meteoroid is hurtling through space toward Earth. Unfortunately, the computer controlling the newly installed meteoroid and asteroid exploder or MAAX, defense system has developed a HAL-like personality, and refuses to stop the approaching rock unless someone answers seven science riddles. [Emmy Award winning] Bill Nye and his team of scientists (including the rock expert "Sam Andreas", and the marine biologist "Sue Nami" ) have been called on to answer Mad Maax' riddles. The program begins as the user enters Bill's offices at Nye Labs. The building is packed with interesting machines and devices that, through virtual exploration and manipulation, will help the user learn about science. The task at hand is not a simple one, however. The riddles are obscure, and the user is not permitted to solve them until certain science facts have been uncovered. Information must be obtained through experimentation. Exploration and observation are key at Nye Labs. Clues are meant to make the user think. Some guidance is provided to the user via the Nyecom 3000, a sort of pocket communicator that retains the riddles, delivers messages (in the form of mini lectures) from Bill and his team, alerts the player when he or she is on the right (or wrong) track, and (thankfully for the spatially challenged) includes a map to help the user find things within Nye Labs.

Broken Sword: The Shadow Of The Templars / Circle Of Blood Revolution Software / Avalon Interactive [top]


This game is a real winner! It combines the very best aspects of traditional adventure games and mystery thrillers, with even a little romance thrown in for good measure, and a suspenseful and slowly evolving story that will keep you glued to your seat. You are young George Stobbart, just a regular guy from California on vacation in Paris, the city of love. You are sitting outside a French cafe one day, watching the world go by and trying unsuccessfully to pick up the waitress, when out of the corner of your eye you notice a well-dressed gentleman carrying a briefcase enter the restaurant. He is followed by a garish-looking clown, in full makeup and costume, playing an accordion. Moments later the clown reappears on a dead run, but now he's the one carrying the briefcase! But before you even have time to question what's going on, a massive explosion rips out the entire front wall of the cafe, sending you flying, luckily, into one of the restaurant's table umbrellas. When you finally come to, at first dazed and confused, you are naturally anxious to know what happened, and why. What was in that briefcase that was worth killing for? Little do you know that your questions, and your efforts to find the clown who almost killed you, will change your life. You will follow a path of deception and murder that leads you into the very heart of an evil plan, a plan that revolves around the legendary mystical powers and treasure of the Knights Templar! And so begins the long, engrossing and often humorous, professionally written script. You will meet and talk to many people, and you should exhaust all topics of conversation in order to obtain vital clues. The topics available are determined by what you have learned to date, so make sure that you return to talk to them again after new developments. One of the people that you meet early in the game is a beautiful photographer named Nicole Collard, or Nico. She not only becomes your romantic interest, she will also give you suggestions about what to do next if you telephone her. This is a 2D, 3rd person, point & click game, with an easy-to-use interface. The music is good and the graphics were rendered by professional movie animators, with an attention to detail that makes you feel as if you really are visiting the various worldwide locations in the story. There is a map for easy travel and new locations are added to it as the story unfolds. Note that each location that you visit may be larger than the area that you see on the first screen, so make sure that you check all of the edges of the scene, as well as other places within the picture, for any exits that may be hidden. The puzzles are excellent and integrated into the story. Many of them require creative and sometimes daring thinking. Don't forget to click your right mouse button on objects for descriptions and clues: it is essential to solving one or two of the puzzles. And yes, you can die, so make sure that you remember to save before facing something dangerous.

Clandestiny Trilobyte, Inc. / Electronic Arts, Inc. [top]

Andrew MacPhiles is the last of the MacPhiles clan. He has been summoned to Scotland to answer the call of destiny. As the game unfolds, you will learn what happens to Andrew and his fiance Paula. You will also learn the truth about the clan MacPhiles. The first fact and most obvious is that the clan is full of cowards. But there is a deeper story. The game is another puzzle solving ghost game from Trilobyte. Unlike 7th Guest or 11th Hour, this game uses normal computer animation and not embedded real videos. The puzzles are of two types in this game. The first are the house puzzles. These are the brain teasers that you find scattered throughout games of this type. Like 7th Guest, solving these puzzles opens more parts of the house to explore. The other type of puzzle is the door puzzle. Each door that is locked must have a riddle or word puzzle solved to open the door. The words that you find will go toward making up the slogon on the clan MacPhiles coat of arms. After a bit, you may even notice a good place to look for the words. This game uses pretty much the same navigation system as 7th Guest. The worst part of the game is finding the house puzzles so you can solve them. Usually the door you need will be close to the puzzle, but some of those puzzles seemed hard to find. Usually there is only one house puzzle available to solve at a time, so you have to follow the path set by the game developers. The game has three levels of difficulty: brave, nervous and cowardly. If you loved 7th Guest, or 11th Hour, you should have this game. It uses many of the same interface, many similar puzzles, and it does have an interesting story.

Clue / Cluedo 3T Productions Ltd. / Hasbro Interactive, Inc. [top]

Clue is a full-motion video adaptation of the popular board game of the same name. It is an amalgamation of two earlier CD-i titles where (up to six) players take turns investigating a mansion where a murder happened, uncovering clues and evidence to reveal the assassin. There are three storylines with four difficulty levels, each with a unique solution making it altogether twelve different mysteries. Deadly Patent - Mr.Boddy steals a formula to produce artificial rubies from Professor Plumm. The Road to Damascus - Mr.Boddy almost dies in a car accident. He is rescued by the monks of the Order of Silence. Upon his return, he decides to join the order and give his fortune to it. Blackmail - Mr.Boddy convinces all his acquaintances to invest on Bolders Brewery.
The movement system, where the player moves the cursor to a portion of the screen and clicks on it to move or turn to that direction is similar to the one found in the The 7th Guest. Inside the rooms the screen switches to a 360º panorama that can be scrolled by moving the cursor to its edges. Clicking on clocks starts a flashback video of what happened on the room before the crime was committed. Clicking on suspects brings up the interrogation screen, where they can be inquired about weapons, their alibis, etc. Clicking on secret passages transports the player to another room. Clicking on the bell calls the butler and the accusation menu, where the player chooses the weapon and the murderer. Afterwards, the butler informs if the player made the right choice. A notebook keeps track of all the information collected, and can be accessed at any time. Each of the four difficulty levels have a different number of accusations available (3 on the easiest level, 1 on the hardest one). In the easier levels the room positions are fixed, while in the tougher levels they are random. In each player's turn they can perform two moves, two actions or a action and a move. A move is defined by entering and leaving a room. A action is defined by examining items, interrogating suspects or watching a flashback.

Congo: Descent into Zinj Illumina Productions / Viacom New Media [top]

A decent adaptation of the Michael Crichton's novel of the same name (or more precisely, the movie that followed), Congo suffers from frustrating action elements and overly obscure puzzle solutions. In one offending puzzle, you must tag a person and chase her around the jungle. You also can't examine any object in your inventory, so their uses typically become obvious after trial-and-error. Still, it's based on a gripping story (investigate the mysterious disappearance of a Congo expedition), and sports some good acting and cool gadgets to use.

Da Tang Shi Lu / Poetry of Tang Dynasty [Tw] Inventec, Okano / OKNet [top]

This is divided into two parts: poetry appreciation and Dragon in the field (game name). Part of which poetry appreciation can be retrieved by the author, poetry name, creation time, quotes, metrics and other keywords. When you find concrete poetry and get poetry appreciation from them then you can see details of vernacular notes, chanting, assessment, and the author. Game buttons and icons are made of very rich ethnic characteristics, the interface is very friendly, and alone with a mouse you can complete the entire operation process. In the game's point of view you look at a whole scene landscape painting which is a breakthrough in US-Japanese art style. You play the hero, the name of the iron jade statue, 17 years old, who has heard someone chanting of heaven. The mystery of life is your own, and thus begins the process of "reading rolls of poetry, which line thousands of miles ofdangerous road". The most interesting point is that all the live dubbing, and his tone poem recitation is in place, the pictures are relatively unique, and easy to operate, and entertaining, and it's very suitable for players of all ages!

Featuring Australian actors, some who went on to become better known (at least down under); The Dame Was Loaded is a full motion video detective game set in the USA in the 1940s. The main protagonist is Scott Anger. Like all noir-ish detectives he carries a wound from which he cannot escape. Surfacing recently from the bottom of a bottle, a mundane missing brother case seems like a good way to get things going again. You have to go around interviewing people and looking for clues. Some of the joints you need to visit are pretty sleazy. Some of the things you'll find may be helpful in making people friendly towards you and others will be clues. The game features full screen real-life graphics. Sometimes it is just a picture, but other times it is full screen video. The interface is the cursor which changes over significant spots.

From time to time there are also classical object puzzles, but these are quite rare. In this regard it should be mentioned that there is no dialogue in the game, apart from the comments to the player. The graphics are pleasing and the tasks in the game are very diverse.

Deicide 3: Distorted Existence [K] Studio Jacobin / BISCO [top]

As its only game, Studio Jacobin set out to serve a genre not seen very often in Korean games; a typical Japanese-style adventure game. The cyberpunk setting and crosshair shooting intermissions make it seem inspired by Snatcher, although the tone is much darker and more serious. It has full voice acting. Don't be fooled by the title, there were no parts 1 or 2 released. Apparently Deicide 3 was popular enough to warrant a port to GP Holdings' GP2X Wiz, as one of only three retail releases for the ill-fated handheld.

Devo Presents: Adventures Of The Smart Patrol Inscape [top]

Here's the scoop. The future is getting thrashed. And it's up to you and the Devo-lutionary rebel forces of the Smart Patrol to, uh ..."Whip it" into shape. Explore a far-flung netherworld seething with mega-corporate villainy, rabid techno-science, come-hither erotic naughtiness, and dangerously mutated humor. Plunge into surrealistic, "Blade-Runner-on-steroids" urban wasteland where disease means profits. Lock 'n' load your trusty Spudgun and do your darndest to net the heinous recombo-DNA nightmare known as the Turkey Monkey. Or, fail miserably and watch as the dreaded Osso Bucco Myelitis disease reduces all of humanity to moaning skin-bags of pulsating ooze. Duty now! This is a game basically inspired by the late seventies/early eighties alternative band Devo, and which takes us to a world based on every little thing that is Devo. You control a Monkees-style group of musicians called the Smart Patrol who take it upon themselves to stop the mad schemes of the evil mutant "Turkey Monkey" who wants to unleash a virus all over Spudland. Gameplay consists of a myst-like game of "slideshows" but without puzzles to solve, most of the game progresses through dialogue and interaction, so your mission really consists of talking to the right person at the right times. The game features digitized actors as well as multiple endings plus, of course, millions of Devo-related jokes, characters etc.

Discworld II: Mortality Bytes! / Discworld II: Missing Presumed ...!? Perfect Entertainment / Psygnosis [top]

In this wonderfully funny sequel to the original, we are treated to another one of the great stories to be found on Terry Pratchett's Discworld. And to our delight, this one is about our favorite character from the original: 'Death'. You see Death is missing. He's decided to "go on holiday" and is sitting on a beach somewhere, sipping those drinks with the cute little umbrellas, because he "likes to travel and meet people"! Unfortunately this has caused all manner of problems in Ankh-Morpork which, of course, had more than its share of problems to begin with, given the melting pot of species who live there and the general low moral tone of the place. But now 'undead' people are piling up in the streets faster than the dead collectors can stack them on the wagons, and they've run out of places to store them. Rincewind (The Wizard) and LuggageSomeone must bring Death back, and fast! Otherwise the people will be faced with "the horrible prospect of immortality", and God knows, "no one wants that, now do they?" Of course, the one they choose for this unpleasant task must be someone easily expendable, just in case Death isn't too happy about being disturbed. And who better than Rincewind, our favorite little sarcastic and cowardly Wizard. Rincewind, however, isn't too keen for the job, since Death has often offered to go ahead and "reap his soul in passing, just to save time"! And so begins again another delightful tale where opportunities abound for the tongue-in-cheek humor and social commentary of the Pratchett novels, along with all the sight gags and atrocious puns. The game would be well worth its price for the introductory song alone: an inspired and hysterical parody of Frank Sinatra's song 'That's Life', called 'That's Death'! This 2D, 3rd person, point and click adventure also features again the many-legged 'Luggage' as your inventory, challenging puzzles (but not as crazy, this time), lots of new locations and characters, and the wonderful return of Monty Python's Eric Idle as the voice of Rincewind. All sequels should be this good!

Dive: The Conquest of Silver Eye Diamond Software / WizardWorks [top]

In this adventure, you play the part of a famous archeologist, Professor Frank Foster. After spending years on what appears to others as nothing more than treasure hunting, you've finally located the hideout of the legendary pirate Silver Eye. Through a chance discovery of an underwater entrance to a deep-sea cavern just as your oxygen supply is running out, your good fortune turns deadly as you embark on a test of survival. Your adventure will take you deep underground where you'll encounter and fight a legion of creatures in your search for pirate bounty and The Conquest of Silver Eye. Movement is done Myst-style via an on-screen directional arrow that takes you from screen to screen. Interaction with objects is accomplished through a series of command options such as take, put, open, eat, look, use, etc. One of the most obscure adventure games ever made, it's a pretty decent first-person Myst-lookalike adventure game with some interesting puzzles. Although the game offers the same dead silent, unpopulated-but-pretty-to-look-at gameworld as Myst, the puzzles in Dive are integrated better into the storyline and you actually have an inventory, so that the game feels much less like a big logic puzzle-solving contest than an actual treasure-hunting quest. There's a good mix of tradition puzzles (that require you to use items from your inventory), and board/logic puzzles similar to 7th Guest or Myst. There are even some combat sequences thrown in (where you will need to kill some robots), but they are there mostly just to break the leisurely pace of your exploration.

The story behind Drowned God takes place under the notion that the human race was genetically engineered by god-like aliens that even guided us through history by nudging civilization forward with certain artifacts of power. Four of those artifacts (The Ark of the Covenant, The Philosopher's Stone, The Rod of Osiris and the Holy Grail) are now lost and they are the key to unlocking a series of mysteries that somehow tie up practically every conspiracy theory from the Knights Templar to the Illuminati. It is up to you now to gather this artifacts and solve the mysteries as you are sent through time and space from an alternate dimension reminescent of earth. Needless to say the gameplay tends to set the pace for the developing of the super-surreal storyline. Within every new location you'll confront logic puzzles a la 7th Guest which will give you access to new locations, secrets, etc. The interface itself is more reminiscent of the Myst games, where you move through "slideshows" and click on objects to interact with them.

Fable Simbiosis Interactive / Telstar Electronic Studios Ltd. [top]

Fable is a decent point-and-click adventure from Telstar that unfortunately got very little notice due to lack of fanfare, limited distribution, and the general slump in adventure game genre. The plot is typical fantasy mumbo-jumbo: you control Quickthorpe, who is tasked with finding the four fabled jewels to restore his land to former peace. Overall, Fable had a lot of potential that was not quite fulfilled. The dialogue and the ending were disappointing, as was the lack of any real depth to the story. On the other hand, the adventuring components are enjoyable if you like this style of graphic adventure. Experienced players may find it to be a bit too easy, but it's certainly entertaining enough to provide light relief between tougher games and offers a reasonable challenge to players new to the genre.

Fox Hunt 3Vision Games, Evolutionary Publishing, Inc. / Capcom Entertainment, Inc. Corporation [top]

Can a television trivia slacker dude prevent a crazed Soviet agent from blowing up Los Angeles with a nuclear bomb? This question might not exactly beg for an answer, but in Fox Hunt, you'll have a pretty good time trying to figure it out. In this comedy spy thriller, you can teach a guy how to be a spy, but you can't make him cover his mouth when he burps or teach him to speak to women without making sexist or insulting remarks. Luckily, the hero, Jack Fremont, doesn't need to be suave or debonair to make this interactive movie entertaining. With 10 different solutions to the mission and a cast of wacky characters that even includes Elvis, Fox Hunt has enough entertainment value. Like a serious spy movie, Fox Hunt has beautiful women, double agents, and exotic locations (Las Vegas and Colorado to name two...) but outdoes even Sean Connery in some of its action scenes. When was the last time you saw 007 take a jet-propelled wheelchair ride through a hospital, escape from crossdressing Soviets, or shoot down anvil-wielding Rob Lowe clones while freefalling from 20,000 feet? Now, that's action. Although it's not particularly violent, when Fremont meets with a fatal accident, you are treated to the sound of his crushing bones or the graceful arc of his body as it flies out of a multi-story building. The spectacular clarity of the digitized video, due in part to the fact that the original piece was shot in 16mm, and the rocking soundtrack give it the look and feel of an actual movie. It's an interactive movie that merits more than a showing or two. It's silly and amusing but surprisingly well developed and fun to play.

Free Spirit [G] Rauser Advertainment / Volks-and Raiffeisen Bank [top]

This was amazingly detailed for a German advertising game. This is one that embodies quite good 3D graphics and the characters in the game are real actors. The game is one of the few advertising adventures which are played from the first-person perspective. Brief history: The uncle of Philip Marlau, who you will slip into the role of, is missing after a mysterious car accident. Since this was a very reclusive scientist, there is a lack of starting points for the investigators. Phillip then decides to get to the bottom of it.

Gene Machine, The Divide By Zero / Vic Tokai, Inc. [top]

Divide by Zero more than redeem themselves after the horrendous Orion Conspiracy with this outstanding cartoon adventure that unfortunately got very limited worldwide distribution (probably due to the fact that the game was published by little-known Vic Tokai). Set in Victorian Times, it casts the player as good-natured adventurer Piers Featherstonehaugh, who, along with his manservant Mossop, bid to save the world from the evil Dr Dinsey, who is planning to create an army of mutated soldiers using the Gene Machine and take over the world. The game is a traditional point-and-click adventure with an intuitive user interface. Click on an item on screen, for example, and you'll be presented with a set of icons, containing appropriate actions for you to take. This may include 'look', 'taste', or 'take' depending upon what the object is. Should you choose 'take', the object will be stuffed into the traditional bottomless pockets that all adventure game characters have. Other features that will make fans of old Sierra games of yore very happy are the score system, which will let you know what percentage of the game you have completed, and conversational topics that allow you to actually ask what you want to know, as opposed to repeatedly clicking on them. The best part of the game is the wonderful plot that will be familiar to fans of H.G. Wells' Victorian sci-fi novels, which means it combines scientific innovations and historical anecdotes into a fascinating experience. The game is also huge - it features dozens of characters and locations, as well as Divide by Zero's hallmark of challenging, ingenious puzzles that will stump even the most experienced players. But it's a joy to play, and it never becomes frustrating or boring. There are a few puzzles that are irritating in a sense that there are insufficients clues about the solutions, but for the most part they are fair. If you're looking for a fun cartoon adventure that is funny, atmospheric, and challenging, you can't go wrong with this.

Golden Train [Ch] FullSoft / T-time Technology Co., Ltd. [top]

This is an excellent information-rich adventure game in Chinese. This "comedy"-type game uses a scoring pattern, each operation has a certain amount of points. It's the protagonist of the story's goal to find foster parents, the gold Cross and experience an adventure. The most important tool is a knife and a magnifying glass. The knife can help a lot, and with the magnifying glass you can see the small print of the painting on the wall (with most of the comedy content). So regardless of where you start, these two things are the first you need to find. Funny things come out of his mouth, although not normal and it does not make sense, it can also be quite crazy. The game style is much like the Legend of Kyrandia series, you can use the mouse to control the leading actor in the scene with "pseudo 3D" way of acting, often with some strange things to get to be used by players which have a rich imagination. This continues the story of where "Eclipse" ends: the brave hero Alex gets rid of the evil magic, the world does not return to calm. Descendants of Rolls-Royce and Sha Shi continue the battle which has lasted for generations of ancestors. Due to the progress of time, Ehrlich family's rivalry with Sha's family developed from the classic battle of good and evil into clan blood feuds. Two families whose forces are shrinking caused by long years of confrontation. It was release in Chinese, Korean and English versions, however due to insufficient funds, they were unable to penetrate global markets and failed to address regional difference. Despite the failure in market strategy, ‘Golden Train’ was considered a classic game by many players. It won the title of ‘Best Indigenous Game in Adventure Category’ by Style Game Magazine in 1996 as well as ‘Best Game Star in Adventure Category’ by Taipei Computer Association in 1998. The developer later became Gamania which made the popular MMO Maple Story.

Gundam 0079: The War For Earth Presto Studios, Inc. / Bandai Co., Ltd. [top]


Gundam was one of the most successful early instances in Japanese animation - typically referred to as "anime" - to popularize the concept of humans piloting giant man-shaped "mecha," or "mobile suits" into battle. This is an interactive FMV on rails with 4 command options - "attack," "defend," "interact," and "change weapon." Movement - Used Gundam move in one of four directions (used to avoid attacks); Change Weapon - Use a weapon to attack (unarmed attack, the vulcans, beam saber, beam rifle or hyper bazooka); Defend - Use the Gundam Shield to defend; Interact - Applies to the above three actions (mainly used when interacting with characters, rather than in the Gundam). A correct option must be chosen at the correct point in the story to advance. It has some good computer animation and well-crafted mecha fight sequences but gameplay is not that strong. Despite being filmed in live action with western actors, the games voiceovers are a recorded Japanese dub featuring the original cast reprising the voices of their characters.

Hariboy's Quest Condor Software [top]

Hariboy's Quest is a decent point-and-click cartoon adventure game created by Condor Software to promote Haribo candies. The plot is cliché, but passable: similar to Simon in Simon the Sorcerer, you play Hariboy, a young boy who got sucked into a fantasy world through a painting in his room. Of course, all is not well in the lands of Bonbonia: an evil dragon has destroyed a chest that contains the candy formula. This chest is part of the magic tree, which controls access to other worlds. Luckily, there is a copy of the formula spread across three books, which are in turn scattered throughout the three worlds of Bonbonia: the medieval, wild west, and Roman areas. Naturally, your goal is to find these books, put them in the chest, and put the chest back into the magic tree. Along the way, you have to deal with pirates who are also after the same formula. Designed primarily for kids, Hariboy's Quest boasts attractive cartoon-style SVGA graphics and a fun cast of characters comprising all of Haribo's advertising mascots. The interface is very simple: left-click to look at or activate/interact with highlighted items, right-click to bring up the inventory (or interact with items in some cases), and click both mouse buttons at once to bring up the save/load/options menu. Unfortunately, many puzzles are not easy enough for kids at all - primarily because the game suffers from a bad case of pixel-hunting. You will often have to move your mouse carefully around the screen to find a tiny item (say, 3x3 pixel big) that is crucial to your quest. Using items on people is even more exasperating, especially when they are talking. I was stuck several times simply because nothing happened when I used the right item on the NPC - I had to go back and do it several times before something finally happened. If not for the annoying pixel-hunting and clicks-not-registered problems, Hariboy's Quest would have been quite an enjoyable game. There are over 250 (!) locations and dozens of puzzles, so it will take you more than a sitting to finish. Puzzles by and large are logical, and the marketing messages are surprisingly unobtrusive for a promotional title. Overall, Hariboy's Quest is a fun game that is worth a play-through, but you will need a lot of patience and time to deal with its niggling interface problems.

Harvester DigiFX Interactive / Merit Studios / Virgin Interactive [top]

During your exploration of Harvest you control Steve, your character, across over 150 locations set in the town and lodge. The different places feature 3D computer rendered graphics in which digitized characters have been integrated through the blue screen technique. Quite similar to what was done for Phantasmagoria in fact, except that Harvester features full screen SVGA graphics. This controversially violent game has many video sequences, a lot of them gruesome. Many special effects were used to provide the viewer with realistic scenes such as when you die electrocuted or shot with a bullet that literally explodes your head and therefore is for mature audiences only. There are many ways to die in Harvester, but unlike most adventure games, you too can kill other people. There are 21 weapons available in the game ranging from a wrench to a shotgun that you can collect throughout the town and lodge. While it isn't wise to use them during the exploration of the town, they are vital for survival in the lodge. Players have the choice to use violence or instead find another solution to the problem. Like other adventure games, you can pick up objects and make them interact with people, other objects or mechanisms, which will eventually provide you with new items or accesses to additional locations. The dialogues are controlled by keywords that are selected in a list, where new keywords will be added depending on your previous choices, hence the importance of exploring all the possibilities of the dialogue tree. During the dialogues, you will have a picture of the character you are talking to, as well as yours, displayed in the upper corners of the screen. You will find a few healing objects in the game to restore your health. For lovers of horror films this is recommended.

ID4: Independence Day Mission Disks Trendmasters [top]

Trendmasters made a line of toys for the blockbuster summer movie hit ID-4 Independence Day. The Twentieth Century Fox film stars Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Randy Quaid and Judd Hirsh. Included in the ID-4 Independence Day toy line are giant alien figures that activate by sound and motion; alien action figures; movie action hero figures accessorized with battle gear, back packs, spring loaded weapons and armor. Also included are the F-18 fighter jet and an alien attacker ship with four firing missles, two dropping bombs, action sound, lights and a removable pilot. Every action figure and playset comes with a thematically-linked, interactive, IBM compatible "Mission Disk." There were 11 different missions in all. Mission Disk 2: Alien Science Officer - you look out of the eyes of an alien science officer preparing the exoskeletal suits of his brethren for the invasion of earth. By analyzing the genes of native animals you'll figure out what will be needed for your soldiers on Earth. The information you'll receive will be recorded in colored crystals. To build the device you have to move these crystals into a device that will check them for cross-compatibility. When you find two crystals that are compatible they will become the same color and be send to build a powersuit. Mission Disk 6: Technical Expert David Levinson - you pilot a alien space fighter craft as it softens up earth defenses for its mother ship. Using the mouse to move your craft left and right you will fire upon incoming jet fighters by clicking to shoot your deadly ray beam. The goal is to destroy parts of the city beneath you, which can be accomplished by charging your beam, by holding your click, until it is powerful enough to take down bits of cityscape. However the incoming pilots, while easy to destroy, are numerous, high on ammo, and perfectly willing to use their own fuselages as a weapon against you.

This is an educational adventure game for ages 7-12. A magic egg fell from the sky. The evil King Pondos took that egg, and used it to cause destruction. Now, it is many years later. King Pondos is dead, and the egg has just hatched. Inside lay a small blue creature that could bring peace to the world. All is not well, however. There are rumors of King Pondos' return; could he have planned this from the start? Each area consists of a group of rooms. The exit in each area is blocked with a story, which has several words missing. Items within these rooms are clickable, which will say and show the name of the item, display a short animation, and, if the name is used in the story, will give the player the word. Some items will display a puzzle instead. These puzzles may be word searches, tile matching, or other puzzles, and will reward the player with a word. These words can be used to fill out the story, which, once complete, will allow access to the next area.

Izzy's Adventure U.S. Gold [top]

This adventure game features Izzy, the official mascot of the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympics. It teaches about the history of the Olympics by casting kids as Izzy, a creature of unidentifiable species who must explore the five rings of his world and find as many hidden medals as he can. With each medal comes a bit of information about Olympics past, so by the end (in theory), kids have learned a lot. In practice, they probably won’t play the game long enough to accumulate much knowledge. Besides the obvious turn-offs – like the fact that Izzy and every other creature in sight looks like an amoeba – there are more basic problems. The “game” device of the program, for example, goes as follows: as you search rooms you find bronze, silver, and gold medals. You may choose to not pick up lesser-valued medals so that you’ll be able to get the better ones later. The risk you run is that you’ll bump into the bad guy, at which point the game abruptly ends. It is a less-than-captivating contest, like any game that can be lost through sheer bad luck. The information about the Olympics is presented, on the whole, as brief blurbs of text, neither very educational nor very entertaining. The high point of the program is a virtual gallery of Olympic posters from the past century.

Jungle Book, The Powerhouse Entertainment, Kushner-Locke Interactive / IBM [top]

The groundbreaking part of the program is the speech recognition technology - "learn the language of the jungle" and you can navigate parts of the game using only your voice and a microphone, which comes packaged with the disc. At key junctures your monkey guide will chatter nonsense like "Ka-Kee," "Aw-Ow-Ow," and "Ja-Kee-Ta," and then challenge you to repeat his syllables (if you prefer, the sticky points can be passed using more conventional logic games like Concentration and Simon). Except for this gimmicky little trick, which does, admittedly, have exciting implications for the future, Jungle Book is just another example of a CD-ROM that has not figured out how to use multimedia. The entire adventure is live-action video, where you make occasional choices and spend a lot of time clicking on "instinct" - little flashes of light that test hand-eye coordination and play excerpts from the Jungle Book movie. The audience for Jungle Book is very young kids, fans of Jason Scott Lee's pectorals, and die-hard gamers who can't wait to see the latest voice-recognition technology.

Kampf um Trubelland [G] TriNet Computer / Informationskreis Kernenergie [top]

This advergame is to promote expansion of using nuclear power. In the year 2055, Karl has bought up all energy sources (except the old nuclear power plant) and captured all the technicians. Now it's the old ailing nuclear reactor's last hope. Of course, the dangers of that industry aren't touched on. Unfortunately, with dumb politicians having outlawed nuclear power a long time ago, nobody knows how to get the plant running anymore. Using a time communicator, teenager Lena sends a plea for help to her past (i.e. the present of the game, 1996) where it is received by some young boy by the name of Philipp Fünfholz. Like every male teenager, Philipp can't say no to a girl and so he sets out to find technical documentation about nuclear power.

Karma: Curse Of The 12 Caves / Quest For Karma InterServ International Inc. / Discis Entertainment / DreamCatcher Interactive Inc. [top]

Discis, publisher of Jewels of the Oracle, offered Karma as a follow-up. Unlike Jewels, which was developed by Eloi, Karma was a production of Chinese multimedia company Interserv. People expecting more of the polish of Jewels were disappointed. Karma, crippled by playback problems in its video and transition segments and consisting of only 15 puzzles, seemed like a classic joke: not very good and such small portions. That said, what puzzles it offered provided some diverting challenges. Unlike the contemplative (and more numerous) puzzles in Jewels of the Oracle or Gems of Darkness, half of Karma's puzzles test reflexes as well as wits. And in some of its puzzles, one false move instantaneously resets the puzzle to the beginning. That would no doubt be the "Instant Karma" feature. A patched version of Karma which cured most of the video and playback problems was published three years later by DreamCatcher Interactive under the title Quest for Karma.

Kingdom O' Magic SCi Games Ltd. / GT Interactive Software Corp. [top]

A fantasy adventure game spoof - along the lines of Zork but with British Humour. Play as either an unintelligible Green Lizard Guy (use subtitles) or the token female - who was intended to be humourously overproportioned although now Tomb Raider has raised the standard. The designers intended for the game to be non-linear, and many NPCs wander around the entire map getting into fights with each other. Entirely comedic - the troubleshooting guide in the manual discusses sexual malfunction. The dialogue trees encourage the player to be abrasive and confrontational - not doing so will cause you to miss out on much of the enjoyment, and many of the puzzles. The game is a parody of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, as seen in the names of some of the places in the game Rivendull, Minar Tragedy etc. It was designed by Fergus McNeill who became famous during the eighties for games such as Bored of the Rings (influenced by, but not adapted from, the Harvard Lampoon book) and The Boggit.

Kingdom: The Far Reaches Virtual Image Productions / Interplay Productions [top]

Rick Dyer, the creator of 'Dragon's Lair' (now housed in the Smithsonian Museum) designed this beautiful award winning game. It is a grand and glorious fairytale: an epic quest reminiscent of Tolkien that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. It's a revised version of the arcade game Thayer's Quest. In this adventure game, step into the shoes of Lathan Kandor, a young boy, to defeat the evil Black Wizard. Lathan will find help from his mentor, the mighty magician Daelon. Explore the fantasy lands of the Far Reaches and retrieve three of the five pieces of the ancient relic called The Hand of Mobus. Talk to a variety of characters, collect objects and solve adventure type problems and puzzles. It features mouse control, video animations, cartoon-like graphics, an in-game travel map and original music which can be turned off if desired. This is a 3rd person, point and click game with inventory (your pouch). It is set in a wonderful Medieval- looking world of enchanted castles and forests, wizards and magic. The story is engrossing, the voices are great, and the music is stirring. And the graphics are absolutely astounding: Disney-quality flawless animation with over 57,000 hand-painted animation cells! The feeling is one of being in the middle of an interactive movie in the theater. The story was continued in another game called Kingdom Book 2: Shadoan.

Labyrinth of Crete Funhouse / Philips Media [top]

The second game Cliff Johnson (Fool's Errand) designed for Phillips Interactive is virtually identical to Merlin's Apprentice, with ancient Greek myths as the backdrop this time instead of Arthurian legends. The game's premise is that you have been sentenced to death for stealing from Hera, Queen of the Gods. The only way to freedom lies in the twisted path of the Labyrinth of Crete. Each turn presents new puzzles, angry gods and goddesses, and deadly monsters to thwart your attempt at escape. Puzzles here will be familiar to anyone who has played Merlin's Apprentice. There are some action puzzles that require you to click on objects that float by, several logic puzzles that involve moving objects into a certain configuration using only a few types of movements, and word puzzles requiring deciphering some encrypted sentences. The game has three difficulty levels which can be set on a puzzle-by-puzzle basis and changed during the game. And, like Merlin's Apprentice, the state of partly finished puzzles is not saved when you close your game. The logic puzzles, naturally, present the most challenge, although some of them can be quite hair-pulling at hardest difficulty level. The bottom line is that anyone who likes Merlin's Apprentice will love this because they are virtually the same game, although Labyrinth has a more interesting plot, cutscenes, and arguably higher educational values since there is a lot of information about Greek mythology. Not Cliff's best work by far, but is still very, very good.

Last Game 2on2: The Legend of Street Basketball [K] Samsung [top]

Allegedly Korea's first interactive animated movie, this tells a story of basketball, courtyard rivalries and kidnappings. Aside from the occasional multiple choice decisions, there are "playable" basketball sequences in the game, but they're completely menu based. Most of the time, it's just a matter of watching the movie play out, though. It runs in Windows 3.1 and uses ancient Quick Time technology. This results in an image that's much more crisp than contemporary FMV games, but the animation is really choppy.

Legend Lives!, The David Baggett [top]
This is an epic sci-fi masterpiece by the author of the popular Unnkulian Unventure shareware series. Legend takes the Unnkulian Universe far into the future, where, despite mankind's technological advances, the threat of the evil Unnkulians still lurks. This time, their sinister plan is subtle: a deadly computer virus that threatens the whole galaxy. You are Gavin Kelly, a grad student in computer science at Akmi Yooniversity who discovered this new threat and, naturally, must find help to defeat it. Despite this cliche-sounding beginning, the plot Legend soon evolves into a wonderful tale of nature-versus-technology conflict that is by turn thought-provoking and funny. David Baggett's games are known for elaborate room descriptions, and Legend takes this strength to a new level. Game locations are not only well-written, but are so detailed that you can almost visualize the frenzied crowds at the Barfee outlet, or be disturbed by the descriptions of New Hell and the Watchmen. As you meet new characters, long multiple-screens of text appear to not only introduce them but move the story forward. Lengthy cutscenes (i.e. long blocks of text that interrupt gameplay) are abundant, and all very well-written. Anyone who likes to examine every object in the game can spend literally dozens of hours with Legend, marvelling at the plethora and depth of writing, including many extensive footnotes on the stranger objects in the Unnkulian universe. The puzzles in Legend range from the average, to the almost impossible. Thankfully, the game offers a progressive hint system to help break those mental blocks. There are still some puzzles you must solve on your own, but those are quite easy to figure out. All puzzles require manipulating technology one way or the other, and most of your time will be spent in figuring out the uses for the many strange gadgets you can pick up. Although some objects are red herring, you'll enjoy playing with them on the way to hitting on the solution. This is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. The game broke new ground in adding many "cinematic" scenes to the usually dry world of IF, and imbuing its characters with lifelike agenda and personality (although unfortunately many characters are left unexplained or not fleshed out-- perhaps intentionally to leave room for sequels). With a great story, a coherent, detailed gameworld, and many wry humor and abundance of sci-fi trinkets, The Legend Lives! is a must-have.

Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail! Simbiosis Interactive / Telstar Electronic Studios Ltd. [top]

This game in the popular comic adult adventure series featured more fleshed-out, cartoon style graphics and full voice acting. It was the sixth installment (due to the fourth game never being completed. It was the last Larry game created by Al Lowe. After many of the Larry games had gained a reputation for not actually featuring all that much raunchy content when analysed, this installment included some much more risque elements. It was the first game since the third to pick up immediately where its predecessor left off; typically, it features Larry getting dumped by the woman who represented the ultimate goal of Larry 6, Shamara. The formula was much the same as the previous games: the "twist" was that Larry was a passenger on a cruise ship populated by parodies of famous people. Various other pop icons were parodied in the background, such as the Archie Comics gang playing nude volleyball, various incarnations of James Bond in the ship's casino, a Sierra staffer dressed as Sailor Moon, and porn icon Ron Jeremy walking around naked. The plot revolves around Larry's attempt at winning a weekly contest held on the ship by Captain Thygh, a gorgeous blonde. The player must come up with a variety of ways to cheat in each of Larry's assigned competitions so that he can get the highest score and win the contest. Among Larry's chosen competitions are a cooking contest, a "best dressed" contest, a game of horseshoes, bowling, the sexual prowess contest and others. It was also the first Larry game to include a full-fledged minigame: by collecting hidden red-and-white-striped dildos, the player could unlock high quality pin-up desktop wallpapers of the ladies in the game. Players could also "appear" in the game by placing voice samples of selected dialogue and a digitized photo in a particular directory (the default was Al Lowe).

Leonard Nimoy's Primortals BIG Entertainment, Inc. / Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

This is an interactive graphic novel and reference guide to the Primortals comic book series. It includes background notes on the series, interviews with Leonard Nimoy, conceptual art showing the evolution and backgrounds of the major characters and information on the SETI Project (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). Players can experience the graphic novel as one of four characters in this tale of first contact with alien life, co-presented by renowned scientist and science fiction writer Isaac Asimov. Characters include Primaster, the Majae leader whose people removed the dinosaurs from Earth long ago and helped them evolve into the Primortals and Zeerus, a Primortal rebel who believes the Majae imprisoned his people and now wants to conquer Earth. The other two are Stewart Davies, a graduate student working for SETI who finds and translates the mysterious signal from Zeerus and Jess Rossini, his girlfriend and a psychology student, who later becomes a friend to many of the Primortals. The graphic novel tells the story of how Zeerus escaped imprisonment by the Majae, why he headed for Earth and how Primaster and the other Primortals came in search of him. It also deals with why and how Davies and Rossini got involved in the action. The comic includes animation, sound and music to complement the interactive experience of reading about humanity's "first contact" with aliens who descended from dinosaurs. Primortals cranks up gorgeous 2-D artwork with cushy multimedia embellishments: Graphic frames cohere in a fluid, and an animated slide show is accompanied by a groovy techno-pop soundtrack.

Witness the humorous antics of Louie and the Anderson family as you click from frame to frame through over 60 animated "hotspots." In addition to simple animations activated by a mouse click, you'll also watch QuickTime sequences straight from the episode on which the story is based and open up folders with "plot clues" adding depth to the tale. The story centers on the Andersons' trip to Lake Winnibigoshish for a vacation. Will Louie be able to fit in with the cool kids and avoid the annoying girl that likes him? Will his father be able to catch the lake's legendary Huskie Muskie?

Lighthouse: The Dark Being Sierra On-Line, Inc. [top]

Lighthouse is in many ways the most straight-forward Myst clone of them all. Released only shortly after Myst's success became apparent, Sierra gave us one of the more dedicated games in this genre. The quality of the graphics and the technology used, is on par with Myst mostly, but seems slightly outdated today. Basically, the player is a writer who has retreated to small seaside town to get some peace and quiet in preparation for a new story. In his stay in the town, he has befriended the keeper of a nearby lighthouse, which becomes apparent to the player by perusing the various correspondences lying around the starting location (the player's house). On a dark and stormy night (what a terrible cliche) he gets a distressed phone call from the lighthouse keeper, saying that his baby daughter is somehow in peril, and that the player's assistance is urgently needed. From here the player embarks on a journey that will take him/her well beyond our world to a mystical land, whose lost civilization seems threatened by an unspeakably evil being .

Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes: The Case Of The Rose Tattoo Mythos / Electronic Arts [top]

In October of 1889, the formula for a new and extraordinarily powerful explosive disappeared from the Ministry of Defense. Sherlock's brother Mycroft, an eccentric but influential government servant, launched an official though secret inquiry into the theft, but his effort was thwarted. Just before asking Sherlock to undertake an independent investigation of the theft, Mycroft was seriously injured in an explosion that leveled the Diogenes Club. Sherlock, believing his brother had been victimized by a random gas leak, retired disconsolate to 221B Baker St. Dr. Watson, with a little luck and much effort, managed to reanimate his friend by posing one critical question: "What if the explosion that injured Mycroft had not been an accident?" The answer to this query sent Holmes down a long and twisted road of discovery. Sherlock, for the first time in his career, acknowledged that his motivation was something other than a desire for justice. With single-minded ferocity he pursued, cajoled, questioned, and confronted suspects from smug Mayfair to the pitiful and dangerous East End. Gradually, through observation and deduction, he developed a picture of a huge criminal enterprise initiated by a masterful adversary. To penetrate this perilous conspiracy and frustrate its intent he solved several capital crimes. Holmes applied his customary courage, acumen, and intelligence to these daunting tasks. In so doing he quashed a potentially volatile international incident, defended the national security, protected the honor of the royal family, exonerated the innocent and delivered rough and swift punishment to the guilty. The shocking and surprising resolution of the case made it necessary to seal Watson's precious account for 100 years. That is how The Case of the Rose Tattoo became one of the Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes kept by Dr. John H. Watson and the sequel to The Case of the Serrated Scalpel. Accompany Holmes as he sets foot in 50 locations and interacts with 90 characters. All the characters are costume and speech specific to Victorian London.

Master Of Dimensions Makh-Shevet / Eidos, Inc. [top]

The sorcerer Merlin is not only involved in mystical but also in physical things and journeys to other dimensions. One bad day he met the wizard of the fairyland. Since the two didn't particularly like each other, it finally came to a conflict ending with the fragmentation of Merlin's magic wand. The single parts were hidden in different dimensions - and Merlin's power was lost. A millennium later a boy coincidentally finds a dimension machine on the attic of his Grandpa: The hunt for the parts of the magic wand can begin. This is an adventure, using different elements of the genre: beside the classic point'n'click, movie passages (in the private eye dimension) à la Snatcher are offered, while switching to big screens is a style borrowed from French or Japanese productions. The latter takes place when important conversations are lead or viewing special items. Gamers realize in a "dramatic" way that this is the point players have to turn your attention to.

Meteor, The Stone, And The Long Glass Of Sherbet, The Graham Nelson [top]

A well-deserved first-place winner in the 4th annual Interactive Fiction Competition, this once again proves Graham Nelson's prowess as modern-day IF master in the true spirit of Infocom. After taking the player another imaginative spin on the Zork mythos. The game's prose is at a very high level of quality, its world is very well-designed, and several aspects of the documentation (the context-sensitive hints and the diplomatic "briefing") were very well done indeed. I didn't get through the entire game in the two hours [required to play each game in the competition], and I found myself resorting to the hints quite a lot. Often, this was because a logical puzzle had me stumped, but the first two times were due to puzzles which didn't offer enough alternative syntax. Unfortunately, these two situations inured me to looking at the hints, thinking perhaps that my other obstacles were due to syntax problems as well. Apart from this one flaw, Sherbet was a truly excellent piece of work - well-plotted with clever puzzles, a strong sense of unfolding narrative, and rife with the pleasures of revisiting an old friend in a new context.

Mode Anamatics Multimedia / Corel [top]

Mode is designed almost like an interactive art installation. And the number of paths the story can take, the method of communicating to characters within the game, and the style of the game itself really bear this out. The story is a really well-defined yet simple mystery tale. You have arrived at a fashion and art party hosted by Vito Brevis, a mad genius artist-type. You have crashed the party and must find a way of securing a Dome, a silver lapel pin signifying you are "in," one of the invited, beautiful people. Part of the fun of this game is experimenting with the various story paths and character interactions to acquire the Dome, or in trying to play the game through as far as you can without getting bounced from the party for not having a Dome. These story branches actually cause the game to become more elaborate and defined, and I found myself becoming more intrigued by the characters and the story as I tried different things and sent myself down the different directions the game can take. But the acquisition (or not) of the Dome is just one small part of the overall story. There is a deeper mystery that begins to unfold as the story progresses regarding who Vito Brevis really is and what his real intentions are. The thing that makes Mode an exceptional lost jewel of an FMV adventure title is that the developers used a method of communicating with characters called a "Mood Bar." It's a colored strip that runs along the bottom of the screen. The colors in the bar start at a deep fuchsia and move through reds and blues and greens. When a character communicates to you, the player, you do not respond using prewritten choices from a standard conversation tree; instead you pick the "mood" of your response. These choices totally change the outcome of the game. Entirely different things happen with same characters based on the mood used to speak to them.

Monty Python & the Quest for the Holy Grail 7th Level Inc. [top]

Burn the Witch! Battle the Black Knight! Then outwit the bridgekeeper at the perilous Bridge of Death in this enchanting interactive medieval experience - the first to earn an enthusiastic thumbscrews up from Vladimere the Impaled! And, as an extra, top-secret bonus, this game includes an exciting never-before-produced scene from the script of the original Monty Python film (an animated version of a scene involving Arthur and the knights' encounter with the "Wild" King Brian). Collect clues and solve puzzles as you join King Arthur and his band of knights on their quest for the Holy Grail. Declared "best cd-rom game of 932 A.D." Each of the game's nine main screens are based on important locations from the film, such as Plague Village, Camelot, and the naughty Castle Anthrax. Most of the scenes and characters are depicted using actual footage from the film, and the animation is reminiscent of the paper-cutout style used in all Python shows.

One of the myriad of indirect Myst descendents and sequel of sorts to Frankenstein:Through the Eyes of the Monster, Mummy is your standard first person adventure game. You play the role of Michael Cameron, an investigator for the National Mining Company. One of your company's sites in Egypt has reached a bit of an impasse. It appears the workers there fear that they have come across sacred burial grounds and believe they have awakened a mummy. Your job is to investigate these claims (with the hope of proving them unsubstantiated so work can continue), all the while dealing with the Machiavellian-like site manager (played by Michael McDowell of A Clockwork Orange fame) and the resident Egyptologist, who happens to be an old flame. Game play involves navigating static, rendered scenes, picking up and manipulating items and occassionally coming across someone, which leads to a short video conversation with them. You never get a choice in such conversations outside of potentially offering the other person an item to have or examine.

The player controls Shinji Ikari, the main character of the series. A new Angel appears and attacks Unit-01. As a result, Shinji loses his memory.

Many scenes are taken directly from original Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes.

This is a unique clay-animated adventure. Born into a Neverhood that may never exist, Klaymen explores a land of Terrifying Creatures, Extraordinary Machines, and Mysterious Artifacts. Long ago the king of this world was betrayed by his trusted assistant. You must save the Neverhood by navigating Klaymen through a twisted plot of ancient secrets, witty inventions and monstrous puzzles to outwit your nasty foe. To unearth the truth, you must find and view 20 short videodiscs that have been scattered throughout this world, while solving a variety of puzzles as you go. The puzzles are not all that difficult if you are really observant about what you see and hear on your trek, and besides, there's a built-in hint system within the game that you discover right away. It's located where we all do our best thinking, in the 'John', and there you can always find inspiration about what to do next, written on sheets of toilet paper. The brilliant and bizarre full screen graphics are, quite simply, amazing, and both the movements and the facial expressions of the endearing characters seem absolutely real. The music in the game is rhythmic, funky and warped, with totally indecipherable vocals, and yet it's the kind of music that you find that you're tapping your feet to. Apparently over 3 tons of clay and frame-by-frame hand positioning of the characters was required to create the world depicted in the artwork.

Nirvana X-Rom, Gabriele Salvatores' [It] Bruno Tognolini, CD-ITALY [top]

This game is based off an Italian movie of the same name. It's a sci-fi adventure mixture between Tron (sort of..) and Johnny Mnemonic. The film tells the story of a virtual-reality game designer, Jimi (Christopher Lambert), who finds out that the main character of his game, Solo (Diego Abatantuono), has achieved sentience due to an attack by a computer virus. Asked by his creation (who feels everything the character in the game feels, including multiple deaths) to eliminate its existence, Jimi sets out to erase the game from his employer's server before it's commercially released, and thus spare Solo further suffering. Jimi feels desperate because his wife Lisa (Emmanuelle Seigner) left him. He starts to search for her as he tries to delete Solo from the game. These two paths of his life complement in the story throughout the whole film. By the end, Jimi hacks into one of the company's servers. This hack is in the world of virtual reality interpreted as encounters with persons from Jimi's life. That is the way the network defends itself. It tries to keep the hacker's mind in the loop of his own memories as it burns the hacker's brain. The only way to pass through the network defence mechanism is to free one's mind. To forget about life before or after; to forget about bodily feelings; to enter a state of pure concentration, where one focuses only on the target (in this case the server with the company's money account). It is similar to meditation where one tries to concentrate on breathing. People who are able to do this are called angels (they are invisible to the system, they can go anywhere they want and their possibilities are limitless). In the end Jimi feels enlightened. He is in inner peace with himself. He saved the character, understood why Lisa left and understands why the things happened in the way they happened. He is in the state of Nirvana. The game has 50 FMV movies with some footage taken from the film (with many unpublished) and other originals, shot ad hoc. There's also 40 scenes in QuickTime VR, taken from photographs on the film set, or modeled in 3D. It has 400 images from the shoot of the film, from the set, from backstage and from other sources, plus 50 animations created in 3D/2D graphics. Texts include the script integral of the film, and music songs from the soundtrack of the film and original music for the CD.

Normality Gremlin Interactive Ltd. / Interplay Entertainment [top]

No doubt one of the most original adventure games ever, Normality is like a tongue-in-cheek version of George Orwell's classic 1984: You are Kent, a very -erm- independent lad who's being persued by the cops (the "Norms") for deviating from the strict norms imposed by the new leader Paul. Puzzles are obscure at times, but their wacky logic is self-consistent and becomes evident when solved. Great 3D engine, plot, and characters make it one of the best adventures ever, and it will also take you a long while to finish. It is perhaps most interesting as it was one of the first games to put what is essentially a traditional "point and click" adventure game into real-time 3D, being, as it is, largely devoid of action sequences traditionally associated with the 3D format. It is played in the first-person perspective, and the game's engine is actually the same used in the game Realms of the Haunting. The graphics are very similar to that of Duke Nukem 3D or other so-called "2.5D" games of its time. The story revolves around Kent Knutson, a rebellious teenager in the city of Neutropolis, from which various places take up the setting of the game. While in prison, he receives a note from an anonymous inmate telling him about the underground insurrection group that he might want to join. From here on, the player starts the game in Kent's apartment, having to go find and join this resistance group.

This first-person, point-and-click adventure begins in a beautiful northwestern forest in the near future. After a few steps forward you find a tent, in which is a small personal computer. This device handily delivers the exposition of the story: You play Lilah, a scientist who, along with your boyfriend Max, has just launched a huge artificial intelligence orbital factory to clean up the atmosphere and repair the ozone layer. The computer includes data on the project - called Ceres - as well as personal information and even details on dreams you and Max have been having. Now on vacation after Ceres' launch, you and Max have noticed a bizarre phenomenon in the forest: a huge black object that grows steadily hour by hour. Just as you are finishing up absorbing this information, you hear a scream - Max must be in trouble. You run to the huge black object - which you've named Obsidian - and you get sucked into it. After a dazzling cutscene, the game truly begins. Obsidian takes you through a series of beautiful and bizarre worlds that have been created by a rogue offshoot of your Ceres AI program and based on your own dreams. The games has a smart cursor, minimal inventory and 2 different endings. The 4 completely different and almost unrelated dream worlds are all dark and mechanistic and devoid of human life, but strangely beautiful and richly detailed. The surreal graphics are stunning, and the animated cut scenes are really spectacular, with atmospheric music and sound effects, and fluid movement. However both the engrossing story and the unusual environments serve merely to showcase the many bizarre puzzles that are the main focus of this game. Most of your time is spent solving them and they are both innovative and difficult. They are an integral part of each unique dream world, impact that world, and often require orientation to and use of that world's logic to solve. None of them are really easy, and be forewarned that there is one at the end of the game which is almost statistically impossible. The high quality animations, the disorientation puzzles, and the writers' ability to see the humor in the darkly prophetic scenario of the first section all contribute to the fun. For those who love puzzle games, this is one of the best... the classic that set the standard for all such subsequent games. It is a unique and memorable game.

Operacja Glemp [PL] Jake Soft [top]

This is an adventure game set in a modified Polish political reality of 1996. The place of action is Kuria, a secret headquarters of mafia called the Episcopate. Poland is ruled by bishops black mafia, under the leadership of godfather operating under the pseudonym Glemp. All state institutions are under the control of the Christian National Union (Union Sick of Hate). Special militias prey on infidels who run partisan activities against the current government. The main character is the agent of the guerrillas. His task in the game is getting out of prison in the basement of grim Curia, murder of several significant for clergy persons, theft of stolen money and shares and blowing Curia in the air, finally safely escape Primate's Mercedes. The game takes place on the premises, among which the player moves by clicking on the direction arrows. The control mechanism is similar to the classic point & click system. The left mouse button shows the information about the items and sub-options to choose from, right-approve the action. The player must be very careful in making decisions. Every mistake ends up instant death. For example, drinking water from a bucket standing in the cell ends in death caused by typhoid. Only at the end of August 1999, there aroused much controversy and protests in the national media, so that the game suddenly gained immense popularity. The controversy arose from the fact that the game presented strongly anticlerical humor and the Polish Catholic Church was presented in a decidedly negative light. Some resented the fact that the game put the target bomber or ridiculed real figures of Polish public life ( Henryk Jankowski , Joseph Glemp , Lech Walesa , Ryszard Czarnecki ). The author was sued, there was a scandal which also hindered the distribution of the game.

Orion Burger Sanctuary Woods, Inc. / Eidos, Inc. [top]

Sanctuary Wood's last game before disbanding is a fun cartoon adventure with a zany plot: Orion Burger, a galactic fast food joint, has selected Earth as its next target for "protein procurement" that will wipe all sentient life. As hapless hero, you must take tests to prove that intelligent life exists on earth to avert certain destruction. If you fail, you will be mercifully sent back in time before you were abducted. Being caught in a time-loop adds a neat dimension to the game, since you can solve puzzles by trial-and-error without the penalty of death. Time limit spoils the fun, however, and puzzle solutions are too obscure.

Pandora Directive, The Access Software, Inc. [top]

Welcome to San Francisco of the future - a strange megapolis with a post-apocalyptic feel, where ordinary humans co-exist with mutants - the result of radioactivity. In this city is also the office of Tex Murphy, a lonely private investigator, kind-hearted, yet bitterly ironic. He is hired to investigate the disappearance of a scientist named Thomas Malloy. A series of murders occur at that time, and before long Tex finds himself involved in a complex conspiracy of political intrigues and shocking scientific discoveries. "The Pandora Directive" is a sequel to Under A Killing Moon, utilizing the same 3D engine, real actors, and gameplay system. You can physically explore the locations you visit, looking at objects from different angles, zooming in, etc. You'll have to talk to many people about various topics, and also to solve some complex puzzles. The game provides a built-in solution for the puzzles, but you don't get any points for solving them if you use it. The game introduces a new gameplay element: Tex has three kinds of answers at his disposal during some important dialogues. Depending on what kind of approach you choose for Tex (especially in conversations with his sweetheart Chelsee), you'll come to one of the 6 different endings.

Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle Of Flesh Sierra On-Line Inc. [top]

In Phantasmagoria II you play the role of Curtis Craig, a 30 year-old man whose distorted childhood is filled with horrors - his dad was involved in an illegal, top-secret experiment for Wyntech, an experiment whose true nature is revealed only as the game progresses, and whose evil nature left Curtis' mother out of her wits and eventually drove her to suicide. Curtis' father was later shot, leaving the poor little boy with serious behavioural disturbances, and eventually in therapy. Now, a year after having been released from the mental institution, Curtis is employed at Wyntech (whose manager, Paul Warner, has taken it upon himself to take care of Curtis) and tries to find out the cause of his psychotic episodes and the mysterious murders that break out all around him, all the while finding out more and more about his past life and his father's fate. Though still an enormous game in size — coming on five separate CDs — it was in no way as large as its predecessor. Dropping the unique adventure game style interaction in favor of an interactive movie format, A Puzzle of Flesh was more expensive to produce and less popular with audiences tiring of video clip-driven games. Though some concluded that it was a substantial improvement over the original in several areas, others dismissed the game, criticizing it for its completely different atmosphere, lack of creativity, interactivity and excessive violence. It has a fairly standard interface, with the cursor shaped into the distinctive logo of WynTech— the company employing Craig. The inventory is accessible practically at any time, while events of some importance can be recalled using a handy option that plays the clip the player selects from any single chapter. The game was a financial failure — probably the result of a rapidly falling interest in interactive movies, especially ones packed onto several CDs — and no further titles in the series were produced.

You travel through hyper-dimensional tunnels until you come to a tower. Then you choose left or right. Guess the correct way to go and you continue. If you don't then it's game over, just like that. And when you do make it to a tower you have to place in a code to shut off the enemy blocking your way. The dates are based on important times in history, such as when a comet hit Jupiter, or the fall of the Berlin Wall. If you read the journal all those important dates are listed.

Take Myst, remove the puzzles and plot, then twist the scenes around and coat it with Cannibus Culture. Now your starting to get an idea of Pothead. It's more of an animation-packed experience than a game, a grass-roots effort created in an eleven-foot-wide Hudson St. railroad flat. The disk produces the burbling sound of smoke sucked through a bong, and suddenly, you're in a virtual hash bar...offered a thick Hershey-bar-size slab of elite Parvatti hash. It has a message too, man. Clicking on a pulsating brain offering random sound bytes such as cultivation secrets, or a man recalling maternal chastisement for smoking pot. There are hundreds of photos of the kindest Hashes and Buds in the world (we went there to photograph them!) You'll find some in the Hash Bar and The Pot Farmer's Den. Or, Grandma Brownie's Photo Album. There's hours and hours of music and audio, thousands of clips. The soundtrack is an unstoppable morphing of all kinds of musical styles, noises, words, laughter, and general mayhem. Hidden icons reveal hundreds of conversational clips, characters and various pieces of machinery can be engaged. Several full-length songs are also located somewhere deep in The Valley. There's no way to reference anything on the disk. You've got to wander and learn for yourself. That's the best way to learn about pot, or anything, really. If you're not a relaxed and explorative person, the CD-ROM will annoy you.

Private Investigator Image Line / Private Media [top]

Private Investigator is a game with a split personality; it opens like a movie, begins play like The Seventh Guest (wandering around a raytraced animated world via a full-screen display with various iconically represented options), and finishes up like Duke Nukem (before they went 3D) with an arcade-like shoot-em-up that isn't half bad for killing a half-hour or so. Most of the gameplay actually ends up here, where you dodge tall basketball players, avoid killing old ladies in wheelchairs, score points for spending quality time with any women you can find, and kill the Jackie Chan-esque bad guys in black pants. Simple, linear, and easy to rack up the points. Thank goodness it's easy to rack up the points, because your reward at the end of each successful level is a little of that quality time with your buxom employer. The game even included a password protect and additional levels on the internet for download.

Promised Land, Queensrÿche's Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. / EMI Records [top]

Promised Land is a multimedia adventure game based around the members of the progressive-rock band Queensrÿche. The premise of the game is all about the symbol or totem of the band (called the "Tri-rÿche"), which is composed of five parts, and at the beginning of the game it scatters every piece in a different "world", and each of these worlds happen to be created by each of the band member's dreams and worries. So your job is to find each of the pieces and rebuild the totem, and to accomplish this you'll have to solve puzzles and minigames. As you find each piece, the band member who "owns" that world lets you have a glimpse of his work in the band in the form of musical videos. The game is a 2-CD set, the game fills up the first one, and in the second you'll find mini-documentaries and music videos.

Pyramid: Challenge Of The Pharaoh's Dream Knowledge Adventure Inc. / McGraw Hill Home Interactive [top]

This is an educational adventure for kids 10 and up. Explore an ancient Egyptian pyramid, go back in time to see how it was built, and even lend a hand. Learn about Egyptian culture, religion, and daily life by interacting with a cast of cartoon characters including merchants, workers, and citizens. Whenever the program is teaching ancient construction methods, it is fascinating: kids have to find true north, make papyrus, paint hieroglyphics, use physics to manipulate huge stones, embalm the pharaoh's body, and more. When it is teaching about culture, however, the disc is less involving. Read text and interact with characters whose over-simplified appearance clashes miserably with some of the fancier 3D fly-bys in the program (created by Academy Award-winner Dream Quest Images). Throughout the title, kids are guided by a helpful Scarab that supplies kids with context clues about the different puzzles and adventure.

Pyst Parroty Interactive / Palladium Interactive [top]

Pyst is a computer game published as a parody of the highly successful Myst. It features full motion video of John Goodman portraying "King Mattruss". Like Myst, Pyst behaves like an interactive slideshow. The game features both three-dimensional graphics and animated drawings. It was written by Peter Bergman, a co-founder of the Firesign Theatre. The original release included an original song, "I'm Pyst", performed by Goodman. "Pyst" shows us what the island of Myst would look like after 4 million people (players) walked over it. The island is full of litter, most buildings are ruined, and graffiti reveals secret doors and solutions that players have to find themselves in Myst. A demo of a sequel titled "Driven" (a reference to the Myst sequel Riven) appeared on CD-ROMs of later Parroty Interactive games. Though graphically more advanced than "Pyst" (and allowing some movement), the game was apparently never completed.

Sacred Mirror Of Kofun, The Future Concept / Enteractive, Inc. [top]

Chris Young, a top racecar driver and marine technology specialist, is summoned by the Worldwide Heritage Foundation to retrieve the sacred mirror of Kofun, a mysterious Japanese artifact that offers magical protection against enemies. This is a first-person adventure game, another of the many attempts in the nineties to copy Myst and its financial success. It features a blend of Quicktime VR 360º panoramic views with the more traditional slide-show style associated with this type of game. A computer called E.D.W.A.R.D provides a database and a map. Both items are automatically filled as the plot progresses. Most of the gameplay consists of scuba diving and taking photos under the sea (the game was co-produced by the famous marine biologist Jean-Michel Cousteau) and talking to the crew of the ship Antares for clues. The underwater sections use real documentary footage instead of pre-rendered environments.

Secret Mission Microids / Philips Media [top]

An inconsistent adventure that features an interesting plot hampered by poor user interface, Secret Mission is a relatively unknown adventure game from French developer Microid, who would go on to produce a much more solid and better-known Amerzone CD adventure. Secret Mission opens with the tried-and-true adventure gaming premise: you wake up in a nondescript hotel room with an amnesia, with no recollection of who or where you are. After meeting a certain attractive young lady, you learn that you are Jeff, a double agent who pretends to work for the Americans, but actually works for the Russians. You are now in Opalia, an exotic Middle East country that is about to be embroiled in a coup d'etat: Vishaka, the prime minister, is planning to assassinate the King to usurp his power. Naturally, your mission is to find the evidence of this scheme, so that Russia can use it to gain influence over the country. The Americans are after the same goal, so you must not arouse their suspicion of your traitorous acts while you carry out the secret mission. Similar to Alone in The Dark, objects you can interact with are shown in a small window when you are close to them, and pressing ESC brings up an action menu you can toggle to get, open, move, give, etc. The number of verbs in the menu makes this interface very unwieldy, and using items in your inventory is a cumbersome process. Interface weakness aside, though, Secret Mission serves up an interesting espionage thriller, with many plot twists and turns, shady characters, and several ulterior motives. The puzzles are, for the most part, logical, although some (such as decrypting the hierogryphics) are quite interesting. Overall, an above-average adventure that fans of the genre should take a look, although don't expect another Last Express.

Secrets Of The Luxor Mojave [top]

In this first-person perspective Myst-style game you are an Archaeologist working in Egypt who has made an exciting discovery concerning the location of a mysterious and powerful obelisk left behind by an incredibly advanced civilisation. If the obelisk does exist and if it falls into the wrong hands it could be used to bring about destruction and chaos on a massive scale. As it turns out the obelisk is also being sought by two powerful opposing forces - an American scientific/military expedition and a fanatical cult leader. Resolutely, you set out to beat them to it though what you will do with such a dangerous object, if and when you find it, isn't explained. To learn the background to the story it is essential that you read your rather lengthy journal that you find in your hotel room. It also contains a couple of clues to help you with some puzzles you will encounter in the game. The puzzles are fairly well integrated into the game world and are mainly of the mechanical variety, most of which involve finding and interpreting clues in the game environment, and there are also one or two items to find and use in the appropriate locations. Among the items you may pick up and use are a camera and a VR headset though they don't really add much to the gameplay. It's divided into three sections, and the three parts are profoundly different in tone, ambience, and player enjoyment. The first part has the experience of creeping around a dangerous, unpredictable, and mysterious old Egyptian tomb. The second part has you wandering around rooms that look like space ship command bridges. The third part has you catapulted 300 years into the future, and you find yourself in the middle of a huge round fortress that consist of several concentric rings that can be rotated independently from one another. Most of this level consists of solving the devilishly difficult problem of spinning the rings in the right manner so that you can get to the center of the fortress.

Shadoan: Kingdom Book 2 Virtual Image Productions / Interplay Productions [top]

This is the sequel to Kingdom: The Far Reaches. Many years ago, the wise Mobus broke a powerful amulet called "The Hand" in 5 pieces in order to protect it from getting into the hands of his evil brother Torlock. These pieces were sent to the far corners of the land. As the young Prince Lathan Kandor you have already retrieved the Black Mace, the Hunting Horn and the Orb of Mobus (in the previous game). Now you must retrieve the final 2 pieces (the Dagger of Arne and the Crown of Malric), defeat evil and be reunited with Princess Grace Delight. This is an adventure from the makers of Dragon's Lair. The plot isn't exactly original or complex, but the animation is fluid and well-drawn. Gameplay is about using the right item or making the correct choice between the animated sequences; some of these choices are timed, meaning that you can lose health or even die, but there are plenty of opportunities to replenish your health. Of special note is the ever-present Disney-like music.

German-produced game Shine is a typical Myst-like 1st-person perspective adventure game with pre-rendered backdrops. In this game you will become Shine. But who is Shine? You don't know when you start the game. You don't know anything but that you are in Twilight City, a once huge and crowded metropolis. But all life and population seems to have vanished, everything is past and only remains as a distant memory. Strange artificial creatures, lost musicians, no day and no night - what dark secret does the city hold? Become Shine and find out by exploring murky and frightening places, meeting bizarre creatures and people and solving a few puzzles. Behind the numerous doors of the institute insanity and nerve decay are lurking. An old man's eyeball, through the peephole of his door, asks curious questions. The story takes place in Twilight City. In this former center of esprit and fine arts a general decay began. Eternal dawn prevails and an oppressing atmosphere is extending. The gamer controls the character of Shine. But who is Shine? The gamer must find out that by the painstaking collecting of small pieces of information. Other characters give hints about your origin or lead the player into a dead end. Those who try to approach the solution of this adventure with logic and systematic way, are finally really ready for the lunatic asylum. Numerous considerable artists like the photographer Florian Seidl (Amica, Marie Claire), the German Heavy-Metal-Formation Schweisser and Ludwig Hungs, well-known grimace-artist from the McDonalds advertisement nevertheless care that the player will be confused on an artistical very high level. Those who don't understand the game can simply get high on the graphics and sound.

Silverload: A Town With A Hell Of A Nightlife Nova Spring (Vic Tokai) / Millenium Interactive Limited [top]

When a game starts showing up on lists of "worst games of all time", it's not a good sign. This is a game about vampires in the old west. The game begins promisingly enough as you stumble across a wagon train that has been savaged by vampires. As you are a dedicated lone gunslinger fighting for truth, justice and the American way, you promise to rescue the kidnaped son of one of the wagon train's occupants. The nearest civilized area is a mining town named Silverload. The town's citizens are a strange lot, though. They deny all knowledge of a kidnaped child and make you feel as welcome as an American in Iran. Though the town is small, there are numerous locations to search and search and search for many areas and inventory items are impossible to spot. The voice acting is terrible. The inventory system from hell, so unpopular in The Scroll, has returned with a vengeance. Hot spots are often near-impossible to find, and attempting to combine two inventory items into one is an exercise in frustration.

Smarty Nicholson Associates [top]

In the 1990s, Theresa Duncan defied industry norms by creating lyrical CD-ROM adventures based on young girls' everyday experiences. All three of Duncan's works were markedly different from most of the "games for girls" of the time. Instead of dating or dress-up, they encouraged players to freely explore fantastical, richly textured worlds. After the acclaimed Chop Suey, this second game has Smarty off to visit her Aunt Olive for the summer, where she'll host a spelling radio show, eat at the Pancake Hut, and visit a mysterious dime store. The game can be switched between daytime and nighttime as users play; each scene is rendered differently in the light and the dark. It's for slightly more sophisticated pre-high school girls. The charmingly naive drawings and overripe prose are laden with a hip adult's nostalgia and a sassy love of eccentricity. She can buy ice cream from the ''flaky Sno Kone man'' who drives by the house, stow her books inside a garden shed and explore the house of Percy and Polly who keep Christmas decorations up all year long. The youngest child is likely to be amused by dogs and cats behaving like humans, sitting at tables and booths at a ''Smarty'' eatery called the Pancake Hut. And parents will get a kick out of what can be played on the jukebox - three bizarre little ditties (''Pancake Mountain,'' ''Pancake Boy'' and ''Runaway Pancakes'') composed and performed by Brendan Canty, drummer for punk band Fugazi. Mimi's random adventures take her from Aunt Rose's house to the Pix theater (showing snippets of ancient cartoons), to Our Lady of Impossible Sorrows parochial school (where she acts in a play), to the Dollar Dream discount emporium and a hardware store. A narrator reads aloud for beginning readers the text that appears on screen when the user moves from place to place on the map. Learning games are apt to pop up anywhere. In all, there are a couple dozen activities. Some are hidden so cleverly it'll take days of play to find them. In 2015, a Kickstarter was successfully supported to preserve "The Theresa Duncan CD-ROMs" and marks the first time server-side emulation has been used on a large scale to provide access to digital artwork.

Before the discovery of the Jornal and the reintroduction of the ritual, there were 1000 years of order and peace that passed. What the explorers "seeking knowledge" were held to a morbid obsession for power, greed and control. All involved in participating in the investigation were swallowed up into the dark underworld of the occult evil. Supernatural magic and bizarre pagan rituals were performed. While you're with your friends travelling to a Village Festival, you will be lured to the ruins of an ancient castle. Here you will encounter the brutal pagan activities recounted that took place many centuries ago in the castle. But this year's festival will not be what everyone expects. This year it could be that you go all the way and open the gate to hell. This year could be the last one for everyone... This is a mysterious action-adventure with an unique fusion of video and photo-realistic 3D graphics, about 50 km on dirt roads of captured video, 8 old ruins with panoramic images and charts to explore, fully articulated views including step-by-step scrolling panning and 360 degrees, various display modes including high-resolution graphics (32,000 colors) and various sound effects.

Space Bermuda, Vobis Virtual Space Volume 1 [G] Westka / Vobis [top]

This was one of the few first-person advertising adventures that were popular in Germany in the mid-90s. This is about a commander of a space agency in 2197, who is sent to check the automated and unmanned space station Capella. Because for some time, transport spaceships mysteriously disappear after leaving Capella. From the first person perspective you roam this station, collect items and solve puzzles. The rooms can be examined in a 360° angle. The graphics itself are in fact downright fantastic. This is not surprising when you consider it was made by a graphic artist who worked previously for LucasArts. The music is very futuristic, the noise level also ensures a great atmosphere. There are also interactive soundtracks and digital voice output. The game has everything a good adventure needs: challenging puzzles, a good atmosphere and great graphics.

Spider-Man: The Sinister Six Brooklyn Multimedia / Byron Preiss Multimedia [top]

The Sinister Six is an adventure game adaptation of the hit Spider-Man franchise. Following the plot of the comic book of the same name, the gameplay is straightforward: choose what you want to do next from a menu of multiple choices, and follow to the next screen where you will play one of the extremely simple mouse-driven mini arcade games. Some are so simple, in fact, that you can complete them without really knowing what you are doing. Despite decent cartoony graphics and an okay plot, the gameplay is so laughably simple and easy that the 'game' portion is almost nonexistent. If you can treat it as a shoddy interactive comic book with some banal action sequences, perhaps you will be compelled to finish The Sinister Six.

Spycraft: The Great Game Activision, Inc. [top]

As a new CIA operative, you've been called to Washington. Apparently a Russian candidate for president was assassinated (read: shot) while giving a public speech. Can you uncover a conspiracy that reaches the highest level of government (both US and Russia)? Spycraft is a video-adventure that involves quite a bit of puzzle-solving. With input from ex-head of KGB and ex-head of CIA, the scenario is frighteningly authentic. You choose your actions from what is available on screen. You will need to collate large amount of information, and pick out certain patterns that will lead you to what you need. You are helped along by your trusty PDA which highlights the areas to be investigated (i.e. puzzles to be solved) and keeps track of relevant facts. It details the attempted assassination of the President of the United States and the CIA and SVR attempts to save him. Although the game was not approved by either organization, it tends to favour realism due to its coordination with former CIA director William Colby and former KGB Major-General Oleg Kalugin. You won't go unprepared, though: to prepare for the assignment, you get the espionage boot camp at the CIA training facility, The Farm in Langley, Virginia. Lead a team of special forces, carefully study satellite photos, intercept radio communications, conduct ballistics analysis and operate a computer-based suspect identification tool - all exercises are based on actual CIA covert ops training procedures. Master the tools of a CIA operative, surveil double agents and intercept radio transmissions to infiltrate a web of rogue spies. It has unrivaled production values: stunning computer-generated graphics, 35mm film, actual CIA footage and dozens of Hollywood actors portray the danger and intrigue.

Star Trek: Borg Simon & Schuster Interactive [top]

Star Trek: Borg is an interactive movie/computer game set in the Star Trek universe with approximately 120 minutes of full screen video. This game was filmed on the Star Trek sets using actual props, scenery and costumes from the big-screen versions. In the midst of a new Borg incursion ten years after the Battle of Wolf 359, Starfleet Cadet Qaylan Furlong is given an opportunity by Q (John de Lancie) to go back in time and prevent his father's death in the historic battle. Q sends Qaylan to the USS Righteous, his father's Excelsior class starship, just before the Battle of Wolf 359. Originally, the ship's security officer Coris Sprint was killed by a Borg intruder over four hours before the battle. Q gives Qaylan control of Sprint's body at this point, allowing him to change history. Since Sprint is Bijani he has the ability to go into a "Bijani Pain Trance" which allows him to complete jobs even when feeling immense pain, and this becomes an important plot point in allowing the character to complete the game. Meanwhile, Q takes over the role of Dr. Thaddeus Quint, whose personality suits him. At several points throughout the game, the player (Qaylan) is given multiple choices about what actions should be taken in various situations. The results vary based on whatever actions are chosen. If the player chooses poorly, Q will reset time and allow him to try again. If the player makes too many mistakes, however, Q becomes bored and the game ends. Game play is a unique combination of a Myst-style point-and-click adventure and a real-time free-flowing game. The game progresses like a movie, but at certain junctures, the player must make choices (done by clicking on objects or people) which affect the storyline. Additionally, failure to "make a choice" is interpreted as a choice of inaction, which affects the story accordingly. At any time (when the player is not at a choice-making juncture), the game may be paused, allowing the player to examine his surroundings with a tricorder. Certain tasks require information that can only be gathered in this manner. This 3 CD-ROM set also includes The Picard Dossier, a comprehensive guide to the Borg.

Welcome to the Klingon Language Immersion holodeck program. You will be guided by Gowron (his hologram, actually) in this true immersive experience in the Klingon culture. You will participate as Pok, a young Klingon about to take his Rite of Ascension. You start at home getting ready to entertain guests of your father. Be ready to participate in this interactive adventure, so you can truly experience what it feels to be a Klingon. Klingon is basically a full-motion video click-your-own-adventure. At certain points in the game, you will be given a few seconds to make a decision on what to do. You perform action by clicking on the object onscreen, or do nothing (which is sometimes appropriate). Make the right choice, and the game continues. Make the wrong choice, and Gowron scolds you for not learning, and gives you another chance as the program was "rewound" back to that decision point. The game also comes packaged with a Klingon Language Lab, which helps to teach you about the Klingon language, complete with speech recognition to correct your Klingon pronunciation. Shortly after the game was released, a novel written by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch was made. This 195 page story was based off the original script used in the game.

On this cartoon adventure, Saturday morning is totally out of control. Trouble-making toons have escaped their TV world and taken over yours. And unless you round them up and zap them back, your world will never be the same again. But be warned: these video varmints won't give up without a hilarious fight. So prepare yourself for endless pranks, goofy gags and hard-hitting games in a cartoon caper that's non-stop mass hysteria. Over 30 mind-blowing games and puzzles. Over 50 different worlds within one five story apartment-from prehistoric to futuristic. Dozens of crazy characters with a single ambition: to get you before you get them. This is one wild cartoon adventure with all the elements of those colorful Saturday morning surrealistic satires of life and the world we live in. You'll find great graphics, memorable musical tunes and sounds that make you part of the action. Your immediate goal is to find the remote control, a very realistic challenge for television watchers. The adventure starts with you in your fourth floor apartment, your first challenge: to find the password so you can exit and wander the halls of this five story building filled with unusual people and happenings, games and puzzles, including some impressive 3D arcade-style games requiring 3D glasses (a pair of polarized 3D glasses are included with the CD). The 3D games include Make Way for the Highway (you help wreck a city), D-Ding Dong (an unusual paddle ball game) and Bubble Trouble (a deep sea adventure). Make Way for the Highway is a variation on electronic pong. Here, you try for the highest score while demolishing a 3D cityscape. Hitting a pedestrian with a rolling wrecking ball gets you bonus points.

Sting: All This Time Starwave [top]

This is an amazing and almost frighteningly in-depth "story so far" encapsulation of Sting's life and work that includes rare and specially recorded performance and interview footage, all embedded within a clever Myst-like interface that involves a quest for tarot cards. This game touches upon *everything* - influences (musical, literary, spiritual), lyrical themes, social activism, acting, education, even yoga. Several songs are explored in detail - showing that "Bring On The Night" is linked in musical structure to "Fragile", or that "Englishman In New York" started as a corruption of the "Set Them Free" riff. You get to virtually hang out at Lake House (a beautiful trio version of "Message In A Bottle" is featured) and even sift through song demos on Sting's computer. The prize for solving the game is a "customized" tarot reading from Sting himself and a live solo performance of the first section of the at-the-time unreleased "I Was Brought To My Senses" (credited as "In Search Of The Human Heart"). The replay value is decent, as your "fortune" will change every time you complete the game. By using a mouse to click into various medieval structures, you can access videos of songs from the artist's four solo albums. There's also a theater (excuse me, a theatre) displaying clips and commentary relating to his movie career, a library with passages from his favorite authors (Joyce, Jung, and...Anne Rice), sections devoted to Amnesty International and the Amazon rain forest, and many more goodies.

Terratopia Virgin Sound + Vision [top]

You are summoned by the elders to become a terratrooper, and learn about nature and help and protect all that is wild and free. But once you have arrived on the island, something is not right. Your 5 companions are disappearing one by one. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to find out what is happening on Terratopia. Finding out what is happening is the object of the game. You have 13 ecosystems to explore, each one representing one that is found on Earth. Along the way there are a variety of puzzles and activities that help you on your way by providing clues to what you should be doing, and where you should be going. The puzzles are found in very unlikely places, such as on stone cliffs, behind waterfalls, and in deserted buildings. As you explore the island, you will be impressed by the beauty of the hand-drawn scenery that is very reminiscent of a Don Bluth or Disney cartoon. The game has a look and feel of Myst. The player is placed on an island and given very little information on what they are to do. All the game play is in the first person, that is, through the eyes of the player. There the similarities end, however. This is a kids game, and Myst is for adults. There are also ecological overtones to the game, ala Captain Planet and the Planeteers. During the exploration of the island, there are literally hundreds of natural and ecological facts that are presented to the player. These are used in the solving of the puzzles, and also for general education.

Fox Kids Network teamed up with the kids at Inverse Ink to produce comic books on CD-ROM based on four different cartoons. The Tick dispenses some big blue justice on your computer, adapting an episode from the mid-90s satiric superhero television series that aired Saturday mornings on the Fox Network. Through 20 pages of comic book action, you'll click frame by frame as you guide The Tick through his adventure. Each panel is interactive via QuickTime clips lifted straight from the show, simple animations and "plot clues," which add to the content taken from the episode with original content exclusive to the game. The story involves the invasion of a disgusting alien from Dimension 14B called the Thrakkorzog who plans to take over Earth once he has created an army of mucus-based Tick clones. But first he needs a sample of the eight-foot superhero's DNA -- which isn't so easy to obtain from a nigh invulnerable one! It's up to The Tick (with a little help from his trusty sidekick Arthur) to save The City from one of its greatest (and definitely most grotesque) threats. SPOON!

Time Gate: Knight's Chase Infogrames / Interplay Entertainment Corp. [top]

One of Infograme's most underrated games, this is a fun time-travel game based on the acclaimed Alone in The Dark engine, but with more emphasis on puzzle-solving than fighting. You are William Tibbs, a young American law student in Paris who is unwittingly summoned by the last of the Knights Templar to aid them in their fight against Wolfram, an evil dark lord. Wolfram's power enables him to kidnap Juliette, your girlfriend, thus giving you an added incentive to join the cause. From the present day, you must travel back to 1329 to rescue Juliette and, naturally, destroy the villain. Gameplay in Timegate is all too familiar to fans of AITD games. Everything, from the keyboard interface to save game thumbnails, are lifted intact from that popular series. Although the default action mode is fighting, you don't really have to fight all that often in this game, and you can switch between 3 levels of combat difficulty at any time during the game. Although the automatically changing camera perspectives pose the same problems as in AITD, namely, that you sometimes can't see the action clearly, Infogrames apparently tried to master the technique so your character isn't normally obstructed from view. Puzzles, in general, are fairly easy and straightforward. The most challenging puzzles are the physical kind, e.g. dodging the laser beams, or following in someone's footsteps for several rooms. In the toughest of those, it's "one wrong move and you're dead," so you would do well to save early and often. On the whole, Timegate is a solid adventure that should appeal to anyone who enjoys Alone in the Dark or Ecstatica but wish they were more action-oriented. Overall, an entertaining romp that is unfortunately the only game made in Infogrames' planned Timegate trilogy.

When the FMV (full motion video) fad is in full swing with dozens of horrendous FMV-based adventure titles released (with a few exceptions including Gabriel Knight 2 and Pandora Directive), Flair bucked the trend by releasing this "old school" adventure with hand-drawn backgrounds, inventory-based puzzles, and the familiar LucasArts-style action menu (look, take, etc.). Unfortunately, being old-school doesn't necessary mean "good" - Time Paradox's plot is too mundane (another time travel story with no frills), the puzzles too standard and easy, and the writing too banal to hold any adventurer's interest for long. If you enjoy adventure games in general, Time Paradox may provide a few hours of mild entertainment (less than 5-6 hours to solve). If you don't want to waste time with a below-average game, on the other hand, give this one a miss.

Timelapse: Ancient Civilizations ... The Link To Atlantis GTE Entertainment / Philips Interactive Media, Inc. [top]

Timelapse is a gorgeous Myst-clone. It starts with you receiving an urgent message from an archeologist friend working in the Easter Islands on a ancient link to lost civilizations. You arrive at his dig site to find him missing. You are the only person who can find him and your search will eventually lead you to the ancient Egyptian, Mayan, Anasazi, and the lost city of Atlantis. Timelapse's backstory is a subtle blend of well-researched fact and fictional storytelling designed to create an intriguing, thought-provoking tale that introduces and ultimately explains an alien link between ancient civilizations. By combining elements of archaeology, ancient/lost civilizations, ancient history, science fiction and adventure, the creators of Timelapse wanted to challenge the player to ask himself/herself, "What if this could be real? Could it have actually happened?" By locating and reading the missing professor's journal, the story slowly unfolds before the player as he/she travels from world to world and progresses further and further into the game. Each subsequent world visited by the player provides another important piece of the professor’s journal.

Toonstruck Burst / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Toonstruck is a point-and-click adventure in the style of Monkey Island. It uses a one-icon system, and the protagonist is a motion-captured actor against an animated environment. Drew Blanc, the main character, is played by Christopher Lloyd, whom you may know as the professor in Back to the Future and Fester in The Addams Family movies. He ventures through the animated world consisting of very weird cartoon characters. The land is being overrun by an evil doctor, and you, as Drew, must stop him. It's a great but overlooked cartoon adventure, a modern-day Who Framed Roger Rabbit? story where a likable cartoonist (played convincingly by Christopher Lloyd) gets trapped into a cartoon world of his creation and must restore (relative) order before he can get home. Great voice acting, fun puzzles that do make (zany cartoon) sense once solved, and charming antics round off this excellent underdog. Too bad the slated sequel never came out.

Uncle Henry's Playhouse / Uncle Henry's MindBlower Trilobyte, Inc. [top]

They've bent minds, quickened pulses, threatened logic and paralyzed the reflexes of even the heartiest gamers. And now, from The 7th Guest, The 11th Hour, and Clandestiny come 12 puzzles that led these ingenious games to infamy. Yet here, with enhanced sound and graphics, they're ready to wreak havoc on the wits of new gamers and veterans alike. Your puzzling adventure begins in the dollhouse of mad toy maker, Henry Stauf, built in homage to his horrifying mansion. There, you travel room-by-room, puzzle-by-puzzle through its dark, mysterious walls, encountering the enhancements that Uncle Henry has ingeniously added - the quickened pace and animation in the Amazing Labyrinth, the powerful new sound effects in High Lights, and so many other maniacal additions. Your ultimate goal is to conquer the 12 puzzles, unlocking the door to the mysterious attic. For within, you will find the biggest challenge of all - a brand new, never-before-seen puzzle more masterful and menacing than its predecessors. With three artificial intelligence games, powerfully enhanced sound, extensive replay opportunities, and puzzles that both novices and experts will embrace, this amazing playhouse guarantees hours of challenging play. It was one of the final games produced by Trilobyte. According to statistics released by PC Data, the game had sold a mere 27 units in the U.S. during the 1996 holiday season. It would eventually sell a total of 176 units worldwide. Shortly after the release of Uncle Henry's Playhouse, Trilobyte decided not to self-publish future titles. Although all puzzles are accessible from the outset, the new 13th puzzle is only accessible after all 12 of the other puzzles have been overcome. It's a logic maze where the player must travel from the attic to the front door of a dollhouse. The game has been re-released once as part of Encore's puzzle collection, Puzzle Madness.

Urânio 235 [Pt] Byte & Brothers [top]

This is a first person 3D adventure game, with a gameplay similar to Myst. It was designed to teach basic chemistry for high school students. The player is abducted by an UFO and is sent to an abandoned village on another planet. He/she is told that the alien people who lived there used uranium as a power source, but one day a miscalculated neutron beam has hit an uranium atom, causing a huge explosion, destroying most of the alien population. Now the player's mission is to deactivate the beam. An alien abducts you to take you to their homeworld, which is essentially a post apocalyptic one due to a neutron rays experiment gone wrong (remember those theories that said a neutron bomb would annihilate the planet? basically that). Apparently since humans are more resistant to the radiation than the aliens, they recruit you to deactivate a facility that's emitting more radiation on a important installation site critical to the remaining alien survivors on this new planet. The game presents many chemistry subjects, such as matter, atomic models, physical states of the matter, mixtures and separations, periodic table, chemical bond, chemical functions, chemical reactions and radioactivity.

Útěk (Escape) [Cz] No Name Software [top]

A classic adventure game which was originally a Slovak commercial game, but the authors decided to revamp it in 2002 for newer operating systems, and you can now download absolutely free. It's the end of the school year and you play as a schoolgirl named Margarita, who probably should have listened to her parents before school because there appeara a gentleman who claims to be a friend of her father and has to take her home. Margarita believes him and jumps into his car and after a few moments hears that everything is a trick question and that it is invented. As she starts fretting, she is put to sleep for a few hours, and wakes up in a strange house. She finds that she got carried away by a professor and has been two days being transported. It's therefore a struggle to find her way home. There are three actions that you can perform - to view, use a pouch, switch between them as both buttons on the bottom bar or by pressing the right mouse button. Escape is an adventure of the old school, so all the problems are solved strictly logically. Sometimes you need to use search "pixel by pixel" because some items are hard to find.

Virtual Corporation Microforum International / TopWare Interactive [top]

Make your way up to the top in a future company. But that's not the only goal of Virtual Corporation; additionally, you have to find a murderer. The game takes place in the future where the vast majority of society works on and in an offshoot of the Internet. The difference is that this net is totally VR based, where users plug themselves in via a headjack to literally appear on the net. Virtual Corporation attempts to simulate this environment by creating virtual police, a virtual government, companies, arcades, vacations, discos, etc. In order to exist on the net, users must purchase a VR persona from the government and power from the local power plant to exist there. Should you run out of power, the game is over and a movie shows you plummeting to your death from an office window. The game itself starts you as a new hire of Pogodyne Systems with the ultimate goal being to work your way up to being company President. Gameplay consists of answering your phone and having simple interactions with your managers and coworkers; and an occasional virus attack. During this time, you slowly gain stress points, which are fatal to you when you reach the maximum level. The ways to get rid of stress are to go on vacation or playing games in the arcade. The game is mainly based on a multiple choice question/answer system and has some short sub-games included. All graphics are a mixture of rendered backgrounds and more or less static videos. This was the first speech-controlled "multimedia adventure" (with a microphone included).

Voyeur II InterWeave Entertainment / Philips Interactive Media, Inc. [top]

With the sudden death of Dr. Everett Cussler, Dr. Elizabeth Duran has become the director of her research institute... and some of her colleagues aren't happy about that.

Voyeur II is an interactive movie with a few adventure-style puzzles.

Who is Oscar Lake? Jersey COW Software, Emblem / Language Publications Interactive [top]

This is a unique adventure game that was designed to help learn another language. There are versions in English, French, Italian, Spanish, or German. With the language challenge removed, we have a fairly simple adventure game wherein a diamond has gone missing from a New York museum, believed stolen by Oscar Lake, the international jewel thief. Unfortunately, you are framed with a mock passport in Oscar's name. You must prove your innocence. The game engine is the QuickTime projector engine 2.12, so it brings along the artifacts and idiosyncrasies those familiar with it have experienced. As with other QuickTime titles, there is variability in events occurring. The QuickTime videos are very unusual, with a strobe like effect making the characters seem like they are in slow motion. The acting is uniformly average and there is very little excitement, even when the oh-so-obvious plot is revealed. Strangely for a game designed for adults, there are no believable adult characters, and the villain is more a caricature than a real character, happily revealing how they committed the crime, believing they are too smart to get caught. The graphics are average even for 1996 and average compared with other games using QuickTime. There are no puzzles, only some inventory driven puzzles which are very easy. However, it is possible to do the wrong thing and get caught in a dead end. Be sure to save regularly. Your progress is scored as a percentage and can be accessed from the user-friendly menu at the top of the screen. The game can be finished in less than 5 hours.

Who's Fat Lou ? Mediola / Simon & Schuster Interactive [top]

This is a very rare rap point 'n click adventure where you needed to complete tasks to get all the way to the end to fight the evil "El Guapo" using the "Guapotron". The game features voice acting and some rather edgy humor. Nominally targeted at kids 14 to 18, it is so aggressively hip that playing it can be an honestly frightening experience. Even MTV fails to overload the senses as much as this bizarre but colorful game. Created by Italian designers for an American audience, but the hyper-disgusting humor and jagged rendering seem closer to Japanese styles of animation. In a dank, gray future (where kids, at the dinner table, cry out “Oh no, Mom, gray crap again!”), a band of graffiti artists gets hassled by the cops. The game immediately veers into surrealism, throwing conceits like “narrative” out the window. Move around a park (a top view of a map leads to single-frame environments), confronting creatures like a bird whose acidic feces will burn you to death, a crazed ax murderer who screams “Mommy made me wear her panties on my head!”, and a seductive woman who happens to be graffiti on a wall. Try to solve tricky puzzles under tight time constraints (a major understatement). Too many animation sequences relegate the player to passive watching for long minutes, and the game's macabre design and disconcerting sense of humor are more disturbing than funny, but there's no denying that this CD-ROM is unique.

Zeddas: Horror Tour 2 [J] Caravan Interactive [top]

This is a little known sequel to Zeddas that was only released in Japan. The first game was known as Horror Tour there. The game begins with an FMV of three sinister wizards reviving Zeddas, the Demon King you slew in the last game, as well as his legions of goblins and skeletons to reconquer Rodvydel, and you are beseeched to stop him again. You are awakened in the middle of a forest by the garden gnome who used to run the bar in Rodvydel castle. After a lengthy conversation he hands your a pouch of ten gold coins and runs off down the path. The first part of the game comprises of two villages, a cave tunnel that can be passed through to either village (though for some illogical reason you can reach the opposite village by simply circumventing the cave altogether) and a forest that, like the Lost Woods in the Legend of Zelda, must be traversed in a specific order to progress to the next part of the game or you simply return to the entrance. The first village you arrive at, Tolepolo, seems completely deserted at first until you realise that the hub of all activity here and in the next village is concentrated in the taverns, where most of the NPCs tend to hang out in. Upon meeting most of these characters you may recall seeing them from the previous game, just like our friend the Gnome; the explanation for them being here is that after you defeated Zeddas all the people who were trapped in the castle by his spell were freed. Caravan seemed to have attempted to bring combat to the fore on par with adventuring. Random encounters with enemies happen far too frequently, even in places where you have been before. Atypical of an Adventure/RPG money cannot be gained from battles but from betting on games in the inns, such as arm wrestling, insect races, and a game reminiscent of the window puzzle in the 7th Guest.

Zork Nemesis: The Forbidden Lands Zombie Inc. / Activision Publishing, Inc. [top]

In the last days of the Great Underground Empire, four of the Empire's greatest Alchemists disappeared into the Forbidden Lands on the day of the Solar Eclipse, supposedly searching for the secret of the Quintessena, the Eternal Life. An imperial spy, Bivotar, was dispatched to locate them. He never returned. Now, the task has fallen onto you. You soon discover that the Alchemists are dead, slain by a horrible demon known only as the Nemesis. You manage to get on the Nemesis' nerves, and soon find yourself allied with the spirits of the dead Alchemists, attempting to finish their work before the Nemesis can finish you. But all is not as it seems, and as you unravel the secrets of the past through old letters and ghostly flashbacks, you begin to realize the full horror of the events which transpired under the Eclipse all those years ago. Zork Nemesis is a graphical first person adventure game in the style of Myst or Shivers, mixing logic puzzles with live-action FMV sequences which advance the story. You view each location from a first person perspective, and can rotate 360 degrees to get a full view of your surroundings. It does contain some of the classic humor of the Zork universe, but unlike the other games in the series it has a very dark story and atmosphere with everything ranging from decapitated heads to human sacrifice. If you like horror stories, this one is extremely well done and is disturbingly realistic. The graphics are detailed and realistic, the atmosphere is foreboding and oppressive, and the mood is deadly serious, with eerie sound effects and music. The story is morbid and engrossing, with numerous subplots, and it will keep you guessing until the very end. There is a full hour of dramatic live-action video included, with 14 Hollywood actors, all directed by Joe Napolitano ('The X-Files' and 'Murder One'). It is an unusually long game, with 5 different 'worlds' to visit (Temple, Conservatory, Monastery, Asylum and Castle), any one of which is as long as some other entire games. The complex and absorbing puzzles are logic or mechanical, and are either part of the setting or serve to develop the plot.

Afterlife LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC [top]

Afterlife is is a humorous strategy game similar to SimCity where the afterlife is subject to market-based economy. The player has to make it work by managing heaven and hell simultaneously. In both hell and heaven the player constructs zones which deal with one of the seven capital sins respectively the corresponding virtues. Through the gates new souls arrive regularly which were sinful or virtues in one specific aspect. These go to the appropriate zones to receive their gifts or punishment - but only if the player constructed a street system. If there is no place left they wander through hell/heaven which is of course bad for business. After some time they get sent back to the home planet. These souls are the source of the player's income. Of course these facilities also need personnel. These can be either hired or trained by building special training facilities. There are also additional things the player has to keep in mind, e.g. the satisfaction of each soul and the energy supply. Every buildings has to be micro-managed by adjusting their settings but there is also the possibility to use a tool which does it automatically - for a price. Random disasters like "Birds of Paradise" (excrement rain down on the facilities) break the economic circle and challenge the player to repair the damage. Besides the free playing mode there are also five scenarios where the player has to solve certain tasks.

Beavis and Butt-Head in Wiener Takes All Viacom New Media [top]

A quiz party game, this is designed to test people's knowledge of the two cartoon characters and their cartoon show. Play takes place from a pulled-back perspective allowing you to see Beavis and Butt-Head sitting on their couch watching television as the questions pop up on the television screen. Along with each question, four answers are displayed in multiple-choice format. Each player must buzz in, then answer the question by pressing the number corresponding to the answer they'd like to select. Each correct answer results in the gain of a certain dollar amount while an incorrect answer results in the loss of the same value. The player with the most money at the end wins the game and the one who'll do so is most likely to be a diehard fan of the show or just someone who knows a lot of music trivia. Most questions just refer to the television escapades of Beavis and Butt-Head so an in-depth knowledge of the boys' exploits is a prerequisite to being successful with this title.

Billboard Music Guide Creative Multimedia [top]

Packed with more than 4,000 entries on artists and bands that have cracked its charts over four decades, the Billboard Music Guide CD-ROM is as comprehensive as any compendium covering pop culture is going to get. With a wealth of search tools to track the annual Top 200 albums and full weekly charts from recent years (the lists run through early 1995), as well as listings by artist, song, category and record label, the guide is as smartly designed as it is attractive. Terrific links add to the pleasure; it's little surprise, for example, that you can zip to the Village People from the Pet Shop Boys (who covered the former's "Go West"). The downside is Billboard's generally glowing reviews. As the bible of the music business, there's little of the qualitative reviewing found in Rolling Stone magazine or Spin. But with 38,000 album reviews, 8,000 album covers, 900 photos and - best of all - 985 audio clips lasting 15 seconds each, the disc is a blast. There's something criminal, though, about not counting the Beatles, Rolling Stones or Elvis among the 56 video clips running 20 seconds each. (Alice in Chains over the King? For shame.) For its generous audio samples and nod to many genres, this disc works quite nicely.

Blade Warrior / Zyclunt Phantagram Ltd. / Miwon Information Technology [top]

Based on BLUE, Phantagram's own fast and effective game engine platform, Blade Warrior displays parallax, huge bosses, multiple PCM and spectacular visual effects at 30fps even on lower 486 PC's. Gloomy and stylish graphics, intense battles, and attractive characters complete this high quality Action title. The world has been enslaved by Murk, and players are challenged to free it by collecting the seven fragments of a tablet which are in the possession of seven wizards who inhabit seven towers. The game is a mix of adventuring and battling, in which players are tasked with collecting magical items and exploring the landscape of the game via the in-game map, all the while being assaulted by 'baddies'. Various facilities in the game are accessible only when a certain number of artifacts have been collected. It's a fun anime side-scrolling platformer that not many people have heard about, mostly due to it being distributed only in shareware channels. The game is set in a dystopian future: in the year 2002 AD, planet earth was on the edge of social and economic breakdown due to incurable diseases, drugs, crimes, etc. Cyborgs and Bioroids were being exploited by the crime lords in their fight against the Establishment. You are Sou, member of Zyclunt - a band of retired and discredited soldiers paid by the Establishment to undertake covert missions. The various kinds of robots and Cyborgs you encounter look like they are ripped straight out from popular Japanese comics (manga) - it's a lot of fun just watching their cool designs and attacks. There are several cutscenes between missions that advance the story, and those are also very well done. The international Windows versions apparently alters a few things (new cinematics, a new stage).

Blood & Magic Tachyon Studios Inc. / Interplay Productions Ltd. [top]

This is a real-time strategy game focused on unit management rather than base construction. It uses the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons license (and thus has AD&D type units) and takes place in the Forgotten Realms AD&D setting. There are five separate storyline scenarios of increasing difficulty with three missions per scenario, playable from the side of both factions each, for a total of 30 missions in the game. The game is tile-based with a 2D top-down perspective. The player starts out with the ability to create Basal Golems, around which the game revolves since they generate your sole source of power: mana. By spending mana they can be transformed into stronger fighter units or, less frequently, into buildings. The various types of terrain affect combat & movement; magical items may be found on the battlefield (and the enemy does use them, too!).

Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain Silicon Knights / Crystal Dynamics / Activision [top]

The nobleman Kain has been slain by a group of bandits and in his death, he is revived by the necromancer, Nupraptor for his own ends. Kain is returned in the form of a vampire and burns to exact revenge on those who had killed him. Stronger and faster than a human being, coupled with a thirst for blood that must be satisfied regularly, he is able to dispatch his killers quickly. However Nupraptor and other forces seek to use him a tool in a greater plot. Nupraptor is of the circle of nine, the guardians of the Pillars of Nosgoth. These pillars, the center of the world and balancing the forces, have become corrupted and the Circle members been driven mad (including Nupraptor). The only way to restore the balance is for Kain to seek out each guardian and kill them. The fate of Nosgoth may hang on Kain decisions. Blood Omen is a top-down game where the player controls the vampiric Kain. As a vampire, Kain is vulnerable to direct sunlight as well as water. He is however able to obtain several cursed abilities and spells such as being able to transform into a bat, transform into a werewolf, transform into a mist cloud and sometimes disguise himself from creatures of weaker mind. But Kain is also fixated on murder and is a master of several ways to kill and destroy his opponents. As the enemies are slain in front of him, Kain may drink their blood to restore his health, which is always trickling away, representative of his insatiable craving. To aid in the slaughter of his enemies, Kain may equip different weapons and armor, each with its own unique properties. It plays like your typical Legend of Zelda-style action RPG, light on character interaction and heavy on exploration, dungeon crawling, and combat. You witness the action from a bird's-eye view, highlighted by dozens of smoothly animated, 3D-rendered characters and gorgeous colored lighting.

Colony 28 [Cz] 5th Dimension / Napoleon Games, JRC Interactive [top]

Supporters of the Flashback games will surely be pleased because C28 is a game exactly of this type. The story starts somewhere in the year 2018, when our planet was attacked by a really nasty extraterrestrial civilization, which, after exterminatimg most people, changes the rest of the prisoners to cyborg workers. One such robot was redesigned. But what has happened? Something in your electronic circuits is broken and there is a short flashback in which you're aware of what's actually going on. After this brain shock, you try a dramatic escape and journey, whose objective is the destruction of the orbital base. The path to the base, however, is not so simple. Before you get there, you have to go through eight zones full of heavily armed soldiers, sophisticated traps and logical problems. Running in multiple 2D planes stacked over each other, shoot everything that moves. You collect the keys, access cards, special weapons, ammunition and other items that are needed to bridge some of the problem areas. Joining action and adventure tends to have the most success, and it is no different here.

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

This is a prequel to the real-time strategy war game Command & Conquer. In the "what if" alternate-history universe, World War II was not initiated by Germany under the leadership of Adolph Hitler but was a blight on mankind authored by the rise of Russia's Joseph Stalin instead. The war itself happens but the driving factor is the invasion of Europe by Soviet forces, thus the significance of the title "Red Alert". As in the original game, this supports multi-player action but doubles the number of possible players (from four to eight) via a LAN or the Internet. The game features many new enhancements including a much more detailed level of unit command on land, in the air or at sea, a practice option (Skirmish Mode) and a choice of playing as either Soviet or Allied forces, each with 13 specific missions. Additionally, the game introduces a large number of new units and structures ranging from attack dogs to Chronosphere Generators. The game's real-time aspect is preserved and gameplay includes appearances of both famous and infamous historical figures. It has a dedicated web site containing such extras as a "War Factory" for learning about the various vehicles (helicopters, mine layers, tanks, submarines, missile launchers and more) available during gameplay and a "Research Archive" that offers information on weaponry. Special software designed for chatting with other fans of the game can also be found at the site. It has thirty new units include destroyers, MIGs, spies, and submarines, over 40 missions and dozens of multiplayer maps, and up to eight players can battle it out via IPX. To celebrate 13 years of Command & Conquer, the game was made available for free on 31st August 2008.

Crazy Drake Neurotech Software / One Reality, eGames [top]

Crazy Drake is a side-scrolling action game similar to Earthworm Jim, in which the player controls a duck, Crazy Drake, through various levels set in six different episodes. One night in LoonVille, Prince Drake was playing his favourite video game. Unbeknownst to him, the Evil Dr. FoulBrain broke into the palace and stole the Sacred GoldenEgg, which was the source of power in the kingdom. Since Prince was to blame for not guarding the egg, he knew what had to be done and became Crazy Drake. The game controls like a standard side-scrolling platformer. The player's main attack is a gun with unlimited ammo and they can find special items that can give them Silver Bullets for the gun and a special secondary weapon called SmartBomb. The levels are ridden with hidden items like extra lives, first aid items, and even items that will teleport the player to hidden and secret levels. The eGames version is different to the original DOS version. For example, Drake wears a red mask and lives in Ducktroplis in the eGames version; while in the original 1996 version he is bare-faced, making a silly face, and lives in Loonsville.

Escher Interactive: Exploring the Art of the Infinite Byron Preiss Multimedia [top]

This includes a history of famous Dutch artist Escher's work, interactive puzzles, tesselation generator, and print gallery. It's a comprehensive look at the life and works of this extraordinary personage. It contains biographical information, games and puzzles, but most of its scope is dedicated to visual exploration of Escher's exceptional contribution to the art world. The whole of Escher's graphic work and many of his drawings may be viewed in the game's Gallery section. You may scan the images chronologically, or use a search term to find particular subjects. Since many works have a tremendous amount of fine detail, you may enlarge the images to explore any portion therein. While not himself a scientist, Escher astounded the scientific community with the mathematical preciseness of his creations. His protestations that he knew nothing of mathematics usually evoked the response that of course he had to know more than even he imagined. Much of his work consists of pictures or carvings which divide a plane into interlocking figures. This product contains a Tessellation Workshop allowing the user to take a single piece of one of Escher's symmetry drawings and, through distortion, pattern addition and coloration, create a masterpiece of his or her own. Remember those Magic Pictures sometimes called "stareograms" which consist of an encrypted 3-D image lurking amidst what looks like multi-colored static? Some can see them, some can't and some just think they can't. Escher Interactive offers several of these for the staring, and the hidden images here are, of course, Escher figures. Escher was interested in the distortion produced when a spherical lens was placed over a two-dimensional picture space. There is a Spheres module here which allows you to experiment with this effect on ten Escher images. There are two game/puzzle activities to challenge one's own spatial concepts. Convex/Concave (named after a print by the same name) tests your ability to judge a space that can be either convex or concave depending upon the perspective of the objects placed within it. The second is Impossible Puzzles and believe me, some of them are ? although the designers insist that all are solvable. Each consists of a 3-D model alongside various disconnected shapes which, when properly assembled, will duplicate the model.

Gubble Actual Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Made by the creator of the classic arcade game Crystal Castles, this is a similar upbeat, arcade action game rendered in a colorful 3-D world. So appealing is the simple, but challenging, gameplay and the variety of characters. The main goal is to accumulate points by completing the levels, called zymbots. With each zymbot worth ten points, and over 150 zymbots in the game, reaching the seemingly low score of 200 is quite a time consuming accomplishment. Playing from a third-person perspective, you guide the game's protagonist, Gubble D. Gleep, a perky, big-eared purple alien, around the zymbots in his little green spaceship picking up power-ups and removing all the fasteners such as nails, hex nuts, and screws from each zymbot. Embracing a -like motto of "the right tool for the right job," Gubble has a variety of brand tools at his disposal to undo the fasteners - hammer removes nail, screwdriver removes screws, and so on. While keeping Gubble on track requires little skill (in some respects it's a lot like Pac-Man), the true challenge comes in skillfully avoiding health-threatening collisions with a myriad of nasties like Wangry Wobot Wannabees and Boiler Bots. In 2007, a Gubble HD remake was released with higher resolution graphics, all 150 levels, three difficulty settings, and 12 minigames.

Indiana Jones and His Desktop Adventures LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC [top]

Desktop adventures is made to run in a windowed form on the desktop to use the least amount of memory possible and still allows the player to perform other on screen tasks. This game is set in 1930s Mexico with motley characters, challenging puzzles, and a huge variety of outcomes. Each game averages 30 minutes. The plot, size, and direction of each game are randomly generated at the start, with locations and items being different every time. This style of play is very similar to that in many adventure games on the consoles of yesteryears, such as Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series. Alas, it may be more appropriate to compare this desktop adventure to other desktop games in Windows (for example, Mines and Solitaire), notwithstanding its Indiana Jones license. Each game is designed to play for only about half an hour to an hour. To start each game, the player chooses to randomly create a small, medium or large world in which randomly generated quests have to be solved. The beginning of every game is always the same—you start off at the village and inside a building where, for most of the time, Marcus Brody tells you about a quest and asks you to acquire an artifact to be returned to him. Most of these puzzles or quests consist merely of collecting objects, giving them to some characters so to acquire other objects, which are then given yet to other characters, and so on. Much of the time is lost searching for the right characters for the right objects, both of which are randomly scattered over the map.

Inner Worlds Sleepless Software Inc. [top]

Inner Worlds is a fun, very atmospheric shareware game that rivals Konami's classic Castlevania and features a few nice twists to the tried-and-true concept. You play a scantily-clad Nikita, who has the astonishing ability to turn into a ferocious she-wolf. Her quest is to track down Gralob, the evil monster creation of a misguided genius which has plagued the world for generations. Gameplay will be familiar to anyone who's played side-scrolling platform games. Basically, Nikita runs, jumps and climbs in order to find health gems, spells and amulets and to fight off spiders and bats and all the usual plethora of monsters. The ability to change into a she-wolf adds a lot to the standard formula, though, since there are places where you must change into a she-wolf in order to pass, and you can't shapeshift at will since you need enough mana to do so (or enough shapeshifting potions). Puzzle elements are also sprinkled throughout the game - for example, sometimes you need to use "levitate" potion to get to a high ledge. The graphics are excellent, and in contrast to the "flat" 2D background of most games, Inner Worlds boasts outstanding illusion of depth, with many doorways you can enter. With 3 very different worlds, a lot of secrets to discover, and solid gameplay, this is one platform game that will keep you up nights, and will especially please Castlevania fans. It was subsequently made available for FREE as the game was really written for DOS, and very few machines still run DOS. The game does run under Windows (usually) in DOS mode on most computers.

Iron Man / X-O Manowar in Heavy Metal Realtime Associates, Inc. / Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. [top]

This is a one or two-player side-scrolling arcade game in which the player battles various villains from the Iron Man and X-O Manowar comic book series. The storyline is revealed through onscreen text, instead of animated sequences. Iron Man and X-O Manowar must team up in order to stop a team of supervillains from grabbing the lost fragments of the Cosmic Cube. During the game it is also revealed that the space aliens that Aric stole his X-O Manowar armor from, want it back. The two super heroes battle through several levels, familiar to comic book fans, to stop the terrorists and their supervillain leaders from trying to rule the universe. Both Iron Man and X-O Manowar can jump, punch, shoot an unlimited supply of laser beams (that can be upgraded through icons) and use a limited supply of fuel to fly. At the start of each mission, a computer screen informs you of your objectives. During the game the player can collect medical icons to restore their health, and other icons to give more fuel, stronger laser blasts and a special icon that allows one mega blast from a character's armor chestplate. The game also allows one to destroy various gas canisters, metal wiring and control panels to locate more icons, deactivate certain weapons, or advance in the game. The video game was also adapted into a 2-issue comic book crossover featuring the two heroes teaming up to save the world.

Jisaeneun Dal [K] Pantech [top]

This is an interesting action platform game by Pantech, who usually published games by Mirinae Software. While the setting in medieval Korea is quite uncommon, the plot is just the typical damsel in distress fare: The hero Dusu's village is attacked, and his girlfriend is kidnapped by some rich snob who wants to marry her. Dusu has to fight through six stages to get to the villain's residence. Dusu fights with a wooden stick, which unfortunately doesn't have a very wide range, but at least it can be used to block attacks by pressing the down arrow. There is also a limited supply of hatchets that are used as throwing weapons. At some points in the levels, it's also possible to collect magic spells that are very destructive, but also take some charging time, which might put the hero in danger. Unfortunately the game's mechanics are not that polished. The controls are responsive enough, but the hit detection is merciless, making it often next to impossible to avoid getting hit by enemies. Dusu also easily falls off the borders of platforms, rendering many jumps more annoying than they should be. The game also has some bugs, most importantly that only the fastest speed setting really works without problems (at least in DOSBox), but the fast speed also makes the game really hard. The graphics and music are quite nice and really drive home the Eastern atmosphere. Technologically, the graphics are about the level you'd expect from a SNES game. Since Jisaeneun Dal is so much inspired by console games, it also only offers passwords to resume the game at a previously reached stage. There is an ingame option for speed, but when it is not set to the "correct" value (which is not the default) a glitch makes the hero effectively invulnerable for the rest of the stage after he is hit by an enemy. There is also a cutscene at one point that might or might not get triggered, and thus makes progress a question of good luck.

Kon-Tiki Interactive Voyager Company, The [top]

Determined to test his theories of migration among early civilizations, anthropologist and explorer Thor Heyerdahl built exact reproductions of vessels once manned by ancient Peruvians, Egyptians, and Sumerians and set sail, risking his reputation and his life in four epic voyages. With his first voyage, Heyerdahl sought to prove that pre-Inca inhabitants of South America could have populated the South Pacific. He sailed the balsa raft Kon-Tiki from Peru in 1947, arriving in Polynesia after 101 days at sea on the perilously waterlogged raft. The Ra expeditions from Africa to the West Indies in 1969 and 1970 showed that it would have been possible for ancient Mediterranean peoples to sail to the Americas in papyrus reed boats long before Columbus. Heyerdahl also organized the first archeological dig at the pyramids of Tucume, Peru, and his work on Easter Island helped explain how the enormous statues were carved from volcanic rock and moved across the island. Kon-Tiki Interactive explores the mysterious origins of the world's civilizations and captures the life and adventurous spirit of one of the century's most original explorers.

Los Justicieros [Sp] Picmatic, S.A. / Dinamic Multimedia, S.A. [top]

West life is nothing easy. Especially if we consider that in most of the towns exists a series of people who suffer from two defects: avarice and presumption. This is the case of the Zorton Brothers, two gunmen and real bad guys who think that they are the center of the world, and that all the other mortals must obey them. In addition, they enjoy killing the weakest and making them suffer, something that we are sure you, intrepid "justiciero", can't allow anymore. The Zorton Brothers have arrived at a calm, Pacific town whose sheriff acts as more decorative than practical. He is small, weak, without aim and too talkative. Before this panorama, the Zorton have decided to seize the town with the inestimable aid of their band. It is up to you to save the town from their clutches. "Los Justicieros" is a conversion that comes from the "Zorton Brothers" Laser Disc arcade game made by Picmatic on 1993. Also, "Los Justicieros" was the first Spanish FMV game ported to PC.

Meet MediaBand Canter Technology / Philips Interactive Media [top]

This engaging interactive music video experience was conceived by Marc Canter (creator of MacroMind Director, later Macromedia Director and later still Adobe Director, and a premier innovator of computer multimedia). The first two interactive "songs", UnDo Me and House Jam will give you a taste of what's possible today when you combine music, video and interactivity. Meet MediaBand's aetherRAVE is a combination cyberspace and party "shell" around those two "songs". The aetherRAVE has six unique environments created for you to explore: The Stage, Smart Bar, Archives, Tekno Room, Kid's Room and Swag Shop. MediaBand is the multimedia performance ensemble begun in 1992 to create original interactive music videos that are scalable to any distribution "platform", i.e. CD-ROM, Cyber Clubs or Interactive TV. All of the "songs" are created with "live" performance in mind, as well as Interactive TV. Meet MediaBand is the CD-ROM version of MediaBand's ever growing "database" of material, designed to eventually be a server of interactive media, available to any traveler of the info highway. The MediaBand database will evolve by adding more rooms to the aetherRAVE and of course by adding lots of new interactive pieces. In other words, it's really an Interactive TV show. We feel that Interactive Music Videos are the proper way to introduce people to interactivity, rather than shooting or killing or roaming through scrolling hallways. We've tried to capture the interactivity of a Nintendo game with the broadcast values of MTV.

A Reploid scientist named Dr. Doppler begins creation of a new city for Reploids, which will bring a new era of peace to the Reploids and humans. But something goes terribly wrong, and now Mavericks have begun to appear everywhere. It's up to X and Zero to find out who is behind this Maverick revolt and bring them down for good. Use the unique talents of each character to destroy enemies and assimilate new weapons and powers. Along the way, they will have to find a variety of secret items including a helmet and some robot armor. Located throughout many of the side-scrolling stages are heart tanks, health sub-tanks, and four types of part upgrades: helmet, leg, armor, and weapon. Also available to discover are four types of specialization chips and four suits of temporary, powered-up armor. The action otherwise follows the familiar blueprint of the sci-fi series, with eight themed stages filled with robotic minions to shoot down. Acquire each Maverick's signature weapon in preparation for the final encounter with evil Sigma. It was the first in the series to allow players the ability to play as X's friend, Zero. However, use of Zero was pretty much restricted to only about one third of each level, and only one life. So in short, once you used Zero in a level, you couldn't use him again for the rest of the level, and if he lost all his energy, he'd be put out of the fight for the rest of the game. The PC version was an enhanced version of the original SNES game and included remixed music and anime-style cutscenes.

Mercurius Pretty [J] Headroom / NEC Interchannel [top]

This is a "raising simulation" game, similar in concept to Princess Maker games, but without their RPG elements (exploration, combat, etc.). The player is entrusted with the task of raising a "homunculus", a female fairy-like creature who has to grow up as a human in a medieval fantasy world. The player selects a schedule for the homunculus every day. Each activities raises a certain attribute by a number of points. For example, praying increases spirituality, reading books increases knowledge, etc. The goal is to raise attributes selectively and pass exams, putting the homunculus on one of the various paths (spiritual, combat- or magic-related, and so on). The homunculus' mood decreases when studying; it can be normally increased by talking to her. Different approaches (praising, scolding, etc.) may result in a positive or negative effect, depending on the himunculus' initial state (normal, sad, angry, and so on). The homunculus will also get sick from time to time and require rest. It is possible to buy books and crystals, which may greatly increase the homunculus' corresponding attributes. After a number of days, the homunculus will change her shape, turning into a more human, grown-up person.

Mutant Penguins Sunrise Games Ltd. / GameTek UK Ltd. [top]

This is a fun, cute little action game that plays a bit like Lemmings crossed with real-time strategy games like Command & Conquer. The largely irrelevant plot begins with radio and television transmissions from Earth bouncing around the universe for decades before finally arriving in the galaxy of "Bleurgggh" (no, I'm not making this up). This dingy part of the cosmos is home to an evil race of aliens who become inspired to conquer the Earth after being convinced by the transmissions that the planet is ripe for conquest. Unfortunately for the slimy green aliens, their plan gets off to a rocky start after the last transmission they receive, a wildlife show, convinces them that penguins are the dominant species here. So, the outer-space nimrods take the form of the kings of the frozen tundra and launch their attack. As the attack begins, the player's job is to guide his or her character, either Rodney or Bernard, through increasingly more difficult levels in an effort to thwart the mutants' attack. The focus of each level is the Doomscale -- a basic weight-scale that determines whether the planet lives or dies. The mutant penguins win the level if they are able to get more soldiers to the scale and tip it in their favor. The player wins if his or her character is able to lead the good penguins to the scale and tip it in the Earth's favor. To help in the fight, players can find various weapons on each level including bats, frying pans, and the super club. Whack a mutant with a weapon such as the frying pan, and the evil penguin will release several power-ups that can be collected and used to improve your character's weapons. The improvement of the weapons is critical as an endless stream of marching mutants on most levels offers little hope for the player to be successful unless he or she is armed to the teeth. Knowing how to use the weapons though is not enough. You must develop a strategy for each level or even the strongest attacks will fall under the marching webbed feet of the aliens. With graphics that are adorable and gameplay that is surprisingly engaging, Mutant Penguins is a nice diversion that isn't nearly as inventive or original as Lemmings, but does evoke a fond memory or two about that classic puzzler. If you are looking for a similar game with more focus on action, Mutant Penguins more than fits the bill.

NeoHunter Ronin Entertainment / Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Inc. [top]

After a meteor crash causes the separation of California from the rest of the continent, major corporations of the future decide to invest in the decadent state. It's not long before the newly restored California calls for independence. And so is Calia created. You play as Rick Cage, a good-guy hunter trying to continue the investigation your father left after being murdered. Conspiracies are all around in the rich but decadent state of Calia. The game begins after Senator McAllister, a close friend of your fathers, is murdered in public. You seek the truth, and revenge, and must work your way up the conspiracies ladder by arresting hackers and drug suppliers in order to get to the major drug lords that corrupt Calia. The game features some interesting storyline background, and good artistic backgrounds, flirting with Japanese anime. It plays as cinematic-backdrop shooter, much like Virtua Squad series, for example, but a little more complex. It mixes some puzzle solving, and light elements of resource managing (like gathering credits to get new weapons and equipment), and also allows you to choose the next steps to take, making for a quasi-linear experience.

They may choose to listen to one of three narrative tours, on culture, world affairs, and politics, or watch the decade video documentary. From the year screens, users can select from numerous cross-referenced entries detailing the year's most important events, as well as "A Moment From ..." article that provides a cultural excerpt about that year. For example, the year 1961 includes an excerpt from a Life magazine article on family bomb shelters. Entries cover a wide range of categories: international events, business, religion and philosophy, arts and literature, popular culture, politics, science and technology, space and aviation, and sports.

One of the few women aerial photographers in the world, Marilyn Bridges flies at altitudes as low as three hundred feet to maintain her "intimacy with the landscape." She reveals the power and beauty of ceremonial spaces created by ancient peoples as well as the imprints of modernity: tank tracks cross Peru's Nazca Plain and putting greens overlay Native American eartworks. Sacred and Secular is infused with the artist's belief that the earth is alive and that the way we treat it is the way we treat ourselves. Zoom into and pan around the richly textured surfaces of one hundred spectacular black-and-white images. They can also be accessed via an interactive timeline or map, with text about the culture and landscapes of each of the six geographical areas covered - Egypt, Mexico, Peru, the United States, Greece, and the United Kingdom. Five guided tours link the photographs thematically, with audio commentary from Bridges, and a Meet the Artist section explains her vision and methodology, in flight and in the darkroom. An invaluable archaeological record, Sacred and Secular also documents an extraordinary talent.

Skullcracker Cyberflix Incorporated / GTE Entertainment [top]

This was originally made for MAC computers and ported to PC a couple of years later. The premise is mildly amusing - in an alternate universe a gruesome assortment of monsters, zombies, and freaks are a common sight on the streets. These critters are kept down by a corporation called MEI (for Mortality Enforcement, Inc.), the people who “help the dead stay dead.” But business is getting tough for MEI, since monsters are starting to organize and demand civil rights. People are so used to zombies in the streets that they're no longer worried about them. At the same time, the critters are getting restless because of a mysterious substance known as goop, which makes them mean. Average Joes and Janes are also being converted to monsterhood because of this goop. You enter the picture as one of two freelance toughs: either Mortis "Skullcracker" Rigor, or Penelope "Bonebreaker" Jones. A loose narrative with several cartoon characters sets up the missions to follow and offers tips in between. Most of the game takes the form of a side-scrolling fighting game. Your character can walk either left or right, jump, climb, and crouch. She can also kick and punch. As she strolls through a series of bland levels, she comes across different monsters who need to be dispatched. Power-ups for health, extra lives, extra points, and so on are scattered throughout the levels. Several special weapons - such as a flame thrower, flare gun, and supersoaker filled with holy water - are also available, though regrettably scarce. There are four main missions, each taking place in a given location, each lasting about four levels. These include the woods and playground, shopping mall and arcade, graveyard and cathedral, and MEI lab and headquarters. Each of these features boring, poorly rendered backgrounds that roll by with astonishing monotony. There are two attack moves: a punch and a kick. If you have a weapon, you can use that instead of punching. The monsters are equally lame, with a big boss at the end of each mission that's supposed to give it a big finish.

Squeezils Protozoa / Inscape [top]

This is a fun and innovative 3D action game from a small and now-defunct developer better known for making short eye-catching 3D animated clips in mid-1990s. The wacky plot: you control a Squeezil, a fantasy creature who looks like cross between a squirrel and a beaver. Like real squirrels, Squeezils do anything to get their grubby hands on walnuts. But since the Great Shuddering Nut, every Squeezil has been crazy collecting gold nuggets to bring to it in return for strange treasures from faraway lands. Your objective is to make your way to it by traveling through the seven regions of Nutsville, collecting nuts, gold nuggets, keys, and ancient relics along the way. Each region has 5 to 8 different levels (38 total) that present its own dangers. The game is played from the first-person perspective, with attractive 3D graphics. You can freely explore each environment, climbing up trees and even flying from branch to branch. You find nuts on the ground and in the trees. You can also mug other Squeezils for nuts by either knocking them out of their grasp by sliding into him, or hitting him with a splitting nut. You also have to avoid other Squeezils who will try to steal your nuts, and other predators. The best way to avoid predators is to wait inside the protective cover of trees until they go away. You begin your journey in the River Valley which contains 8 levels for you to explore, and 4 portals that take you to other regions: the Pine Canyon, the Desert, the Jungle, and the Coast. Use your compass to navigate your way to portals that take you to each of these four regions. In each of the four middle regions, you must find the 3 keys which will grant you the ancient Squeezil relic for that region, and open the portal door providing you safe passage back to River Valley. Acquiring all four region relics opens the portal entrance to the Ancient Tomb of Jeff where things begin to get strange. Survive the perils of The Tomb, and you will make it to the utterly bizarre world of Nutsville, where The Great Shuddering Nut has landed, ready to receive your gifts of homage, and endow upon you the rewards of your victorious efforts.

Starry Night The Voyager Company [top]

Van Gogh's dramatic picture of the swirling night sky over Saint-Remy is familiar to lovers of postimpressionism everywhere. But when art history professor Albert Boime determined that the painting almost exactly represented the predawn sky of June 19, 1889, he realized there was much more to Starry Night than meets the eye. What he discovered was a fascinating convergence of historical forces. From the observatory atop the newly built Eiffel Tower, visitors could look down on the 1889 World's Fair, where the Third Republic was showcasing its far-flung colonies as well as the latest technological wonders. Jules Verne was taking readers to the moon, the ocean floor, and around the world in eighty days. Astronomy and astrolgy had seized the imagination of the public. Boime theorizes that Van Gogh, far from being an isolated lunatic (his brother and his friend Gauguin kept him posted), was in fact responding to these tumultuous times with Starry Night. The CD-ROM features almost two hours of audio and over 250 images link the central lecture to supplementary material as well as Van Gogh's correspondence, close-ups of Starry Night, entertaining contemporary illustrations and photographs, a delightful, illustrated essay on stellar phenomena in the work of painters from Giotto to Munch, and more. Immensely learned and completely engaging, this CD-ROM is art history at its most inspired.

Three Dirty Dwarves is a side-scrolling action game with an interesting plot: genetically altered "super kids" playing Dungeons & Dragons open a portal that allows their "alter-egos" (the three dirty dwarves) to enter our world and try to rescue them from their evil Army Base captivity. Once the dwarves arrive, they ransack the local "armory" (a sporting goods store) for weapons and set off to rescue the kids. The portal also lets in a number of fantasy bad guys too and they must be squashed on the way. The main game mechanics allows the player to switch between each dwarf and uses its special attack (e. g. baseball bat and baseballs, bowling pins and bowling balls, and a shotgun). Additionally, there is the "DwarfMorph" attack where the dwarves act as one.

Total Mayhem / Total Mania Cinematix Studios, Inc. / Domark Software, Inc. [top]

This is an ambitious isometric shooter that tries to improve the formulae of Origin's Crusader: No Remorse with new gameplay elements that don't quite gel together. It was the year 2140, and the human race had become enslaved by its own mechanical creations. The "Mechs" that were developed to be sent off to fight distant wars and provide local security became too advanced, too intelligent; so much so, that they enslaved their creators. Sixteen years later, the humans have begun to fight back, using cyborgs created out of the same technology that cost mankind its freedom years before. You are the leader of a small band of human cyborgs, ready to do whatever it takes to recapture your home world. You explore the world from an isometric perspective, shooting anything that moves and a few stationary objects to boot. Along the way, you also have to solve the occasional puzzles using keys, trap doors and hidden entrances to complete the objectives for each mission. As the game progresses, both the bad guys and the arsenal at your disposal grow in power. It allows you to control up to six soldiers (cyborgs, to be precise); Crusader has only one. It also lacks the gratuitous graphic gore found in Crusader.

Even Disney recommends using the gamepad to simulate the console game experience. This is another marketing attempt to leverage properties instead of a true game conversion by programmers and game designers. You play Woody. You jump up, run, and climb on blocks, collect stars, and use the stars to help the other toys. Inspite of the three dimensional graphics, the game has two dimensional gameplay. You move from side to side avoiding bad guys and collecting powerups. You'll go one-on-one with the evil Claw, Scud, and the workbench of horrors. But hang in there, because you and Woody need to rescue Buzz from the toy-torturing boy next door. It's forty hours of gaming in 17 levels of wired-for-action play. Ward off mutant toys with karate-chop Buzz. See a new scene not in the movie - Nightmare Buzz!

Tracer Future Endeavors / 7th Level Inc. [top]

Tracer is the captivating cyberspace strategy game of hacking distributed computer systems for cash using a virtual avatar in the design of Neuromancer, Shadowrun, or Snowcrash styled virtual worlds. This real-time 3D game features more than 50 levels of intensifying gameplay. Launch into cyberspace with a deadly virus snapping at your heels. Don't look back: it's gaining ground. You must plunge closer to the data core to avoid certain death. Hacking was never more difficult or more fun; this strategy game takes you to the edge, to the technothreshold, and back. Although the objective of Tracer is fairly simple—place like colors of code pads down on the grid and use them to move around on each level—the addition of a data-gobbling virus that is simultaneously hunting you down really delivers an adrenaline rush. The overall effect is one of challenging, but nerve-wracking, entertainment.

Vampire Ambrosine [top]

Rise from your grave at midnight and prowl the streets in search of blood. Just be sure to be back in your coffin before sunrise! This free horizontal scrolling game is a remake of an old Intellivision game called Dracula by Imagic. Feed on people walking the streets, or by luring them out of their homes. As you bite your victims, your actions will call the attention of the local constable who will try to slow you down by driving a stake into you. You can respond by either turning one of your victims into zombies to attack the police, or by transforming into a bat to escape capture. Even the forces of nature are against the vampire, as wolves will attack you on foot, and hawks will drag away your bat form. You must feed on a certain number of victims and return to your tomb before sunrise, or you will not survive to feed another night.

Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal Blizzard Entertainment [top]

Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal is an expansion pack for Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. After defeating the Orcish Horde and capturing the survivors, the Human Alliance attempts to destroy the Dark Portal. However, whilst they destroy the portal, the rift that joins the Orcs' world of Draenor to Azeroth remains. The Alliance forces decide to enter the rift to the Orcs' home world to attempt to seal it from the other side. At the same time, Ner'zhul - Warchief of the Shadow Moon clan, who has seized control of the Orcish hordes of Draenor following Orgrim Doomhammer's departure (and eventual defeat) to Azeroth, plans to send his forces to Azeroth to gather magical artefacts in an attempt to open rifts to other worlds. Beyond the Dark Portal contains two 12 map campaigns; one for each side, 50 new pud's (maps) and a new tile set for the Orc home world. It also contains 5 new hero characters for each side that actively participate in several of the new single player missions. In function, they are simply super powered versions of standard units that have different sounds. There are no new standard units however, which many saw as a disappointment. The map editor also isn't updated to include any of this expansion's new features, though third party programs exist that can add these features to the editor.

Windows 95 Game Sampler Monolith / Microsoft [top]

In 1996, Microsoft had already shown great accomplishment with the 1995 release of its Windows 95 operating system. In the span of just one year, game developers had begun to jump on board on the Microsoft bandwagon and had developed, or were developing, a number of games for the system. Seeing an opportunity to showcase its system, Microsoft included a CD-ROM featuring demos numerous games such as Arcade America, Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity, and The Hive plus Activision's Atari 2600 Action Packs 1, 2, Activision's Commodore 64 15 Pack (Hacker), Dogz, Doom 95, Endorfun, Full Tilt Pinball v0.006, Fury 3, Ice & Fire, Locus, MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat, Pressure Drop, Return Fire, Shanghai: Great Moments, Su-27 Flanker, TriTryst, Under Pressure. It also had Non-Playable Demos - Al Unser Jr. Arcade Racing, Battle Beast, Double Switch, Earthworm Jim, Havoc, HyperBlade, Muppet Treasure Island, Rebel Assault II - The Hidden Empire, Santa Fe Mysteries: The Elk Moon Murder, Spycraft: The Great Game, The Dig. And also, there are Video Demos - Command Aces of the Deep, The Daedalus Encounter, Magic The Gathering, Virtual Karts, Sid Meier's CivNet. There's also Internet Explorer 3 & bonus Easter eggs. What made the sampler very unique was how you could play demos. That was accomplished in the form of a 3D space station that was navigated from a real time first person perspective. Not only that, but there were a number of easter eggs and secrets to be found on the station to liven up exploration and make it less of a bland experience. It's worth noting that game developer Monolith Productions (yes, the same developer which made some of the best first person shooters ever made) was responsible for developing this part of the game. This is a very unique game sampler if only because of how unique the concept of using exploration in a game sampler is. It's a testament to how Microsoft was willing to go all out to show off the power Windows 95 was capable of.

Windows 95 Game Sampler 2 Monolith / Microsoft [top]

Following the release of the previous sampler of the same year, Microsoft again enlisted the development skills of Monolith Productions in making a CD-ROM which would be used to showcase various games on the Windows 95 operating system. Like the first sampler, it was included along with the CD-ROM for the Windows 95 operating system. The games featured this time are different. Games such as Diablo, Captain Quasar, The Neverhood, Ravage D.C.X. and Drowned God feature demos which can be accessed via a fully explorable 3D environment seen from a first person perspective. Also included are: Close Combat, Decathlon, DeathDrome, Fire Fight, Flight Unlimited, Free Enterprise, Hellbender, (Hold Onto Your) Nuts!, Killing Time, Monster Truck Madness, Necrodome, Road Rash, Time Commando, War Wind, You Don't Know Jack! The environment, like in the first sampler, is set on a space station, this time called "Station X." Again, the station is filled with a number of secrets to find which makes navigating the station a game in itself. Though, beyond that, you don't solve any puzzles or fight any enemies, just explore and access demos. But that in itself makes for quite an entertaining concept rather than just a bland series of menus from which you can access games.

Adventures Of Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny, The Europress / Mindscape [top]

This is an educational title targeted for children from three to seven. The two stories faithfully reproduce the original texts with an exact reproduction of the illustrations that were used in the printed editions of the Beatrix Potter classic books. It explains how Peter Rabbit ventured into Mr. McGregor's garden and lost his clothes while escaping it. The second tale included on the CD-ROM retraces the perilous episode when Peter and his cousin Benjamin Bunny, decided to go back to the garden and get back Peter's clothes. Both stories are presented in the same manner as the traditional books with the text accompanied by dozens of ravishing illustrations. Yet, the CD-ROM has the tremendous advantage over the book in that it may feature animations and sounds that irresistibly appeal for children's attention. Not only can children listen to the story teller's voice, but they can also watch animations and discover plenty of others by clicking on the screen with the mouse. Each screen or "page" is composed of an illustration placed in the upper part of the screen with a portion of text below it. While listening to the story, the text being read is highlighted in red. Some of the words used might not be understandable by all, and that's why they will remain highlighted. If the child clicks on the word, a new screen will appear with the definition in the center. Other definitions are available by clicking on one of the 26 letters of the alphabet placed around or on the two arrows near the word's explanation to either go to the previous or next word contained in the glossary. Additionally, each definition can be printed by clicking on the printer icon at the right bottom of the screen. On some screens, you will discover short nursery rhymes based on characters from the world of Peter Rabbit, and a few hot spots that provide for certain words a visual description and the correct spelling. There are eleven skill-building activities accessible like the hot spots with the difference that they are indicated with sparkling stars. The activities are divided in several categories such as a jigsaw puzzle, arcade-style and memory games.

Aladdin And His Wonderful Lamp Jones & Jones Multimedia, LLC / N-TK Entertainment Technology, Inc. [top]

Based upon the famous story of Aladdin which was featured prominently in the book 1001 Arabian Nights, Aladdin and his wonderful lamp is an interactive storybook which retells the story with a younger audience in mind. Unlike most interactive storybooks, the story uses video technology and not still, interactive images to tell its story. What's more, the game also features a number of moments where you have an opportunity to make decisions which all result in the story being told a little differently. Sadly, this does little to impact the story which always returns to a set path and ending. Still, this is a very unique feature which gives this game some extra replayability.

Beauty and the Beast: Memorex Children's Series Memorex [top]

Improve your child's reading and vocabulary skills with Memorex Classic Tales, designed by child development experts. Journey back to a story retold in the classic tradition of Charles Perrault and the Brother's Grimm. Carry on the tradition of the highly valued, original tales passed from generation to generation. The story is told in considerably greater depth than the Disney version of a few years back, primarily because there's so much text and (therefore) so many more details. It is this preponderance of text – whether you're reading while listening to narration in "storybook mode", or just listening to narration in "movie" mode – that is the disc's greatest strength and fatal weakness. The simple, mostly black-and-white drawings and the pathetic excuses for animation (a flag that moves back and forth between two positions, to simulate waving in a breeze, is by no means a "movie") are disposable fluff. This storybook is really about using the computer, very straightforwardly, to read the story aloud while letting kids follow along. There's also some hypertext, offering words that will be briefly defined when clicked on.

He or she joins our three investigators, their journalist friend and the animated owl as they find clues and test scientific ideas. They navigate their way around the richly detailed environment from the forest through the village to the town, being sure to collect the clues needed to solve intriguing puzzles. Interviews with the cabinet maker, the saw mill owner, the forester and others, the carrying out of tests in their workshops and factories, the identification of trends and making of comparisons, are all part of the process which they will undertake. After collecting the clues, solving puzzles and meeting the people involved, the pupil will be able to conduct experiments on screen and make the final deductions that will lead them to a conclusion.

Darby The Dragon Capitol Multimedia Kidventures / Broderbund [top]

Darby the Dragon is a beautifully animated variation on the classic 'Dungeons and Dragons' critical thinking program. Here, the lead character finds a magic wand, and accidentally wishes his sister was smaller while they were struggling over the wand. The next thing you know, "poof!" she's been shrunk to quarter-size. Unfortunately, this magic wand needs to be re-charged by the wizard before it can return her to normal. And that requires three magic ingredients which Darby and sister Sparkle must hunt for. It's not as easy as it sounds. For example, one of the requisite objects is a special piece of fruit. To get the fruit, Darby and Sparkle must get past a swarm of bees. To get past the bees, they must have a special jar of preserves. To get the preserves, they must ask the Giant. The Giant, however is asleep, and can only be awakened by a special horn. To get the horn, Darby and Sparkle must befriend a beggar. Befriending the beggar requires a gold coin. Gold coins can be found in several non-obvious places, sometimes in response to problem solving by the user. One is in a trunk at the base of the tower where the Giant sleeps. Unlocking the trunk requires a key. The key is back in the castle, in the Queen's room.

Destination Pyramids Edmark / Riverdeep [top]

This is a reading tutorial, story writing, and language tutorial program designed for use by children with physical, cognitive, or visual disabilities. Using the theme of the life along the ancient Nile, users can create print and interactive electronic books, poetry, and essays as well as movies. Complete with music, sound effects, and historically accurate indoor and outdoor Pyramid Temple and Valley Temple backgrounds, the Sphinx, Pharaoh's garden and palace, the flooded Nile, village scenes, farms along the Nile, and the dock and quarry, students create interactive adventures by choosing scenes, and animating characters to plan plots, write stories and narrate pages. The finished story can then be played back on the screen or printed out. Also available are border backgrounds and a blank background. Unique features include a fact book and tools which enable students to interact with each scene in their story, including autosizing which allows students move stickers around each background scene and have the stickers change size to retain proper perspective to the scene; and smart stickers which go where students drag them and and can be moved inside buildings, and behind or in front of other objects in a scene. The sticker tools include the sticker picker containing hundreds of stickers arranged by categories like people, props, and symbols. Students can drag and drop stickers from the sticker picker into each scene. The sticker editor allows students to change each sticker's size, rotate stickers, turn animations on or off and attach sounds to each sticker. The program can be configured to meet specific ability levels and needs and a special "configure to the young child" feature transforms the stories into a talking puppet theater. Students with low vision or other visual disabilities can select colors and sizes and types of print to meet their needs.

Disney's 101 Dalmatians Animated StoryBook Media Station Inc. / Disney Interactive [top]

This is an interactive reading adventure with fun new ways to improve your child's reading, vocabulary, and problem solving skills. As they ( and their teacher or parent) read along with the dalmatian dogs Pongo, Perdy, and their adorable puppies, you get to move the story along by taking part in four interactive learning activities, six sing-alongs, and hundreds of surprise animations. There's even a fun thesaurus and a dictionary that defines words with poetry. With so many innovative new features, learning has never been so dog-gone fun! The Disney animated dog story and characters from the movie 101 Dalmations are the same, and wicked Cruella DeVille is still conniving to get the puppies to make herself a one-of-a-kind designer fashion fur coat from dalmatian's hides. The player can choose to have the story read to the end or pick Read and Play. In this choice, the player hears the story and may play games plus enjoy interactive elements on each page. An interesting twist on interactivity is a technique of highlighting a word (chosen by the player) in the text. When the player clicks on the word, a synonym or similar phrase replaces it.

Freddi Fish & Luther's Maze Madness Humongous Entertainment, Inc. [top]

Freddi's friend Luther has managed to accidentally scatter Grandma Grouper's kelp seeds throughout a gigantic set of underwater mazes. You control Freddi Fish, who sets out to find and recover all of the missing kelp seeds. As she advances through 50 levels (plus bonus rounds), you'll need to solve simple puzzles, avoid pesky critters, and pick up special items which will help her on her way. After all of the kelp seeds have been picked up in a maze, Freddi will automatically advance to the next round. The player controls Freddi by using the mouse or keyboard. The cursor keys move Freddi, while the Enter and Ctrl keys allow Freddi to fire when she has the Bubble-Shooter power-up. If you choose to use the mouse, simply move the cursor arrow to a target location for Freddi, click the left mouse button, and she'll attempt to swim toward the target - Freddi will be able to navigate corners, but only one at a time, so if she's unable to swim to the target, try breaking the trip up into shorter pieces. If Freddi has the Bubble-Shooter powerup, she'll fire bubbles if she is directly facing the target, and if the mouse button is held down briefly. The game allows multiple people to play the game with their progress recorded under their own name. The game allows you to save or exit the game after each level is finished, and previously finished levels can be re-played. The game also comes with a level editor, that is icon-based rather than text-based so non-readers can use it.

Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland DreamWorks Interactive L.L.C. [top]

Goosebumps: Escape from Horrorland is the interactive sequel to R.L. Stine's kids' horror novel, One Day at Horrorland. You and Lizzy, her brother Luke, and his friend Clay are once again trapped in Horrorland, a sinister, scary "theme park." When Luke and Clay are captured, you and Lizzy must find them and escape from the park with your lives. However, you must go up against a mummy, a werewold, Dracula, and many more monsters in order to escape. Horrorland features cameo appearances by the unlikely duo of Jeff Goldblum and Isabella Rossellini. Horrorland is an excellent adventure game for that 8- to 13-year-old crowd that thrives on the likes of the R.L. Stine tomes and Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark (which was also made into an excellent adventure game). It is an unpretentious romp through a fictional amusement park that contains some genuinely spooky, but not scary, scenes. You play as Lucy, and your siblings, Luke and Clay, have been clutched by the evil tentacles of the Horrorland Theme Park. It now falls upon your shoulders to save your family from their unknown, but sure to be terrible, fate. The theme park is comprised of seven different locations such as Werewolf Village, Valley of Lost Kings, Vampire Village, and Dracula's Castle. Most of these areas and the characters who occupy them are brought to life via a combination of 3D miniature sets, live action video, and animated puppets. This eclectic mix of components provides a nice spooky fairy tale look to the game. Maps are provided to expedite your search, and as in any point-and-click adventure game worth its fangs, you must utilize your inventory as a means to solve problems and further the game. These are not your usual inventory items, either, but objects that an adult would find yucky--like a cockroach or a mummy's decayed hand--and a kid would relish. Flashing pumpkins, alligator heads, guillotines--all add an appropriate touch of eeriness.

Interactive Math Journey The Learning Company, Inc. [top]

The Learning Company's Interactive Math Journey follows a design patterned after their highly regarded Interactive Reading Journey title. In IMJ, users set off on a journey to meet the "mathmagician" by completing 25 learning activities. These activities encompass five math concepts: patterns and shapes, addition and subtraction, measurement, fractions, and multiplication, Each concept is covered in two levels of difficulty. In the first level, IMJ presents a read-along story that explains the concepts and offers opportunities for trying them out. This is followed by a more rigorous exploration activity, and then a short rhyming song to reinforce the concepts. For example, in Patterns and Shapes, the first activity is a rhyming tale about symmetry. On every page of the tale, the user is asked to draw a line through a diagram that symmetrically bisects its contents. Incorrect answers result in funny noises; the right answer takes the user to the next page. The exploration activity which follows the read-along tale builds on the learning experience by having the user manipulate geometric shapes to create mirror images of drawings. These drawings are then assembled into a quilt, further emphasizing pattern replication and symmetry.

Kid Pix Studio Broderbund [top]

The computer equivalent of an artist's valise, this program includes all the tools needed to activate and encourage a child's creativity. It speaks to the imagination just as an empty canvas and colorful palette beckon the master. It is at once challenging but never intimidating. Best of all, it not only promises to capture and hold a child's interest, but it has proven, through years of play, that it will deliver. It features six delightful projects, all of which invite the user to break the boundaries of the staid, 'color in the lines' art mentality. Each creation can be adapted and manipulated endlessly, with zany results. Kid Pix is the basic drawing screen in which the user creates an original drawing and then, by manipulating the numerous drawing tools at hand, makes it metamorphose. There is nothing tedious here. Not pleased with the result? With Kid Pix even eradicating a masterpiece is a creative process. It can be zapped, erased or blown to smithereens (with or without a countdown). When, and if, the user tires of the basic Kid Pix drawing board, it's time to move on. Alternative activities include Moopies, where the child's drawings wiggle and wobble, acquiring a life of their own; Stampinator, which uses animated stamps to create original moving adventures; Digital Puppets, on-screen marionettes that can be manipulated with the use of the keyboard keys in lieu of strings; Slide Show, where the user creates presentations featuring his or her Kid Pix originals; and Wacky TV, which includes video clips that can be adapted using the Kid Pix tool options with kid-pleasing results.

Mortimer is an action/puzzle game for children by Lucasarts. The player can play as Sid or Sally, and rides Mortimer the giant snail to thwart the evil Lodius. Lodius stole the medallion and turned all the animals into statues. The player must revitalise the animals in each of the five action levels, and then, using hints from the freed animals, answer a riddle to pass to the next level. You zip along just above ground level aboard an over-sized gastropod equipped with a computer, the "Revitascope," and the "Slimetron Muckchucker 2000," in addition to wings and propellers. Through crosshairs on his windshield(!), the player takes aim at animals and birds and blasts them - with bursts of life-restoring energy. Occasionally, the player takes aim and shoots a variety of evil flying creatures sent by Lodius. The game uses the same flight engine as Rebel Assault so the flights are "on rails" and you cannot control where to go, you are on predetermined path and shoot what comes at you.

Piper Splash Studios [top]

This is an interactive film made for children that is based upon the story "The Pied Piper of Hamelin." The action is relocated to western times in a mining town called Midas Valley where there is an overabundance of rats. Desperate to end the problem, the town enlists the help of a stranger who comes to town and calling himself Piper (played by Jason David Frank of Power Rangers fame). However, there is a much more devious scenario taking place in which Piper is heavily involved in and which the future of Midas Valley is threatened by. Like most CD-ROM games during this period, the story makes great use of full motion video and live action sequences which encompasses a majority of the game. However, on a few occasions, there are momentary breaks in the action where you have the ability to take part in a number of different action and puzzle sequences. There is even a few "Find the object" sequences that involve you trying to find rats which are hidden within scenes. The success or failure of these sequences can trigger different video sequences which have no effect on the story which is told in a largely linear style. Even so, how well you do in each episode of the game is kept in the form of a high score which can be improved with subsequent replays. While the game is neatly packed onto one CD-ROM, the game actually came packed with a bonus CD featuring songs from the game's many musical sequences and a 6 minute behind the scenes video about the creation of the game.
