Very cool isometric viewed game. You play a dude who has entered a building (Genoq Biolabs) where you have to deliver a package. But while you there something went wrong and a trapped. In this action adventure game you have to walk around the building, free people, solve puzzles, and a lot of more stuff. enjoy.
My favorite entry in the 2001 LOTECHComp for which it won a respectable second place, A Dark and Stormy Entry is a fun and quite clever Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game which puts you in the role of a struggling ... The game is very well-written, with very high replayability because there are many possible endings, i.e. the kind of novel you will write. I had a lot of fun replaying this one, and you will, too :)
One of the rare games based on literature that "get it" right, The Dark Eyeis not so much a "game" as an electronic novel in the same vein as Portal : it is a melange of Edgar Allen ... make it a must-have for horror fans. If you are a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, you'll tremendously enjoy this CD-ROM; if you're not, this is one CD that will spark your interest in his works. A must-have.
Review 1: Despite its "cult" status as one of the most sought-after games of all time, The Dark Half is one of the worst adventure games ever made, its blockbuster license notwithstanding. ... The interface looks a bit like the Scumm's from LucasArts. You play Thad Beaumont who has to stop his twin brother of doing some terrible crimes on earth. The music is very nice as are the graphics.
A text-mode puzzle/adventure game that comes with a level-editor. 11 levels are featured and they will take you on a journey through the Dark Woods, controlling the hero Eduin. The game is made by Jocke The Beast using QuickBasic 4.5.
Review 1: Darkseed isn't a scary game for nothing, the graphics were made by H.R. Giger, nobody less then the maker of "Alien: the eighth passenger". It all starts when Mike Dawson, (nothing ... an interesting game that unfortunately gets bogged down with too many illogical (and timed) puzzles. A good first effort from Cyberdreams, and *much* better than its horrible successor Dark Seed 2.
Review 1: One of the most unique adventure games around when it was published in 1995. The whole game continues from Darkseed 1 and yet again you (Mike Dawson) are in trouble. The graphics in the game ... effect that the first game does as a psychological thriller. Giger's artwork, while characteristically horrific and fascinating, is merely a static backdrop that never truly comes alive.
Created by the same team that brought us atmospheric text adventure The Hound of Shadow, Daughter of the Serpent suffers from almost nonexistent puzzles and short length. Nevertheless, the plot, which ... for the short length. In all, a good introductory-level game. The game was updated with voice acting and animations (although with same dated graphics) and re-marketed as The Scroll in 1996.
Review 1: This review will probably be a biased one since I'm personally a hardcore fan of all LucasArts adventures produced in the nineties. Day of the Tentacle is simply marvelous. The game is packed ... wacky and clever story, DOTT becomes sort of like a great movie; once you've seen it once, you know how it ends. But it won't stop you from enjoying it again. At least it hasn't stopped me at all.
Deadline was the first murder mystery game from Infocom and their third game overall (after Zork I and Zork II). Despite the limitations of an early parser and very difficult puzzles that require multiple ... murder mystery - games ever made. It is very well-written, full of believable and memorable characters, and offers a deep gameplay that will truly make you feel like a real detective. A must-have.
Review 1: When I started to play Deathgate the first I was really impressed with the graphics and general interface compared to other games from this period. The actual game story is based on a best ... but not-too-difficult puzzles, and a very high production value with respect to SVGA graphics and voice acting, Death Gate is one of Legend's finest and most underrated games. A must-have.
The first ICOM game, Deja Vu 1 introduces multiple-window user interface, mouse support (back in 1986-- when not many people knew what a "mouse" is ), and true WYSIWYG. In this game, you wake ... you only a vague sense of what to do next, so the illusion of non-linearity is effective. The periodic flashbacks are a nice touch as they advance the story. There IS a time limit, so save often!
Review 1: This game starts with you wake up with a bump on the back of your head. There are a few things you can remember of the last 48 hours. You were being abducted from Chicago by two men, who brought ... one gang against the other. This is the one game that compares favorably with the best adventure games of the era (1989), and ICOM even generously reduced the number of useless items you can carry :)
This is a highly original game that unfortunately gets bogged down with extreme non-linearity. You are a superhero who has the special ability to take control of most people you meet by typing "BECOME ... someone to solve many puzzles, but precisely who to become is not always obvious. Recommended for veteran IF-er only, and be prepared to get frustrated in your quest to thwart the evil scientist.
Review 1: The first adventure game Mastertronic released is one of the most difficult adventures ever, with its extremely unforgiving puzzles and frequent deaths. For killing the king's guards, you have ... been send to the caverns of Demon's Forge because you killed several guards of the King's palace. No one ever has escaped the caverns. Will you succeed? Very nice CGA graphics will guide you trough.
A huge and well-written adventure that's arguably Mastertronic's best adventure game, Demon's Tomb recalls Infocom's Infidel in that you play an archeologist who must save his findings for posterity. In ... Demon's Tomb is a fun game that will take you a good many hours to complete. It doesn't overwhelm beginners, and makes an effort to challenge more experienced players as well. Recommended!
Deranged Wizard's Castle is a great "retro" adventure game inspired by Kevin Bales' classic Castle Adventure. You play an intrepid adventurer who goes inside the king's castle that has been abandoned ... to figure out their uses. If you enjoyed Castle Adventure, you will definitely also like this modern fanmade tribute that offers an entirely new game, bigger mazes, and even some surprising secrets.
Arguably Angelsoft's best game (alongside Stephen King's "The Mist"), High Stakes casts you as intrepid gambler Steven Scott who finds himself on countless misadventures one after another. The ... action sequences in which you must make split-second decisions (or typing, as it were) to save Dick's life. The action starts right away in the beginning scene, when you must escape from a truck.
The intriguing fantasy world of Dinotopia by celebrated writer/artist James Gurney is brought to life in this underrated adventure game for kids of all ages. You are Nathan, a young lad who found himself ... or cutscenes. More importantly, there is NO option for text or subtitles, thereby rendering the game playable, but not comprehensible unless you have a walkthrough in hand. Proceed at your own risk!
Review 1: In 1995, Terry Pratchett made a very wonderful move in his career. He took his renowned Discworld series to the screen-that is, the computer screen. Partnered with Psygnosis Ltd., Pratchett ... games you are sure to like Discworld. Discworld as a game is very much like the Simon the Sorcerer and Monkey Island games so you are guaranteed if you liked those you will love Discworld.
Review 1: Two of the most underrated adventure games ever, both Discworld games are based on Terry Pratchett's pun-filled fantasy Discworld series, in which the whole world is carried through space by ... an outstanding game. If you are not crazy about that brand of humor, the game may drag on a bit in places. Overall, Discworld II: Mortality Bytes! is a very impressive production and worthy of play.
Review 1: Discworld Noir is the third and last PC game based on Terry Pratchett's popular fantasy universe. It is also my most favorite, even though Rincewind (the hero from the other two games) is nowhere ... portrayed, but having seen him from the outside now in books like The Truth or the Moist books, I can see it a little better. Also, of course, real noir requires the police to be heartless and nasty.
Dizzy Remake is a superb PC remake of Dizzy, a great platformer/adventure hybrid that spawned an entire series on the Amstrad CPC and other 8-bit computers. This first game starring our egg-shaped hero ... you don't know who Dizzy is, but you like adventure/platformers in general, give this game a go - you might just be surprised of how creative cross-genre games can be in the 'olden days' of gaming.
One of the most - if not THE most - obscure CD-ROM adventure games in existence, Down Under Dan is a funny, a bit above-average adventure game from PowerVision, a small developer in Australia. The main ... and more creative puzzles would lift this game into a top game. Recommended for all adventure gaming fans, as long as you don't expect too much - although you can expect to see at least one kangaroo,
This long-lost piece of IF from the power duo that brought you such classics as Oo-Topos and Infidel are back in this zany adventure game that is centered around physics principles. As a hapless student ... distribute this new version free of charge. The download here therefore includes both the new remake (plus feelies in .pdf format), as well as the earlier 1987 release. Compare the changes for fun :)
Dragonworld is a Telarium game that, true to the company's tradition, is based on a fantasy series of the same name. Your task is to journey to your friend Hawkwind to save the Last Dragon in the world ... fantasy adventure. If you like the setting or want an easy game, you might find it appealing. Otherwise, pass this one by in favor of stronger fantasy titles, such as Level 9's Jewels of Darkness.
Dreamweb: a dark, brooding game set in a dystopian near-future. It is not a game for pacifists or vegetarians. Nor is it a game for those who value deep and intricate plots, characters with depth, or life-enhancing ... of style over content, but definitely worth a look for its gripping plot and very atmospheric gameplay. (Oh, and watch out for one of the earliest uncensored sex scenes in a mainstream PC game.)
Essentially a "one hit wonder" company, Baudville released many sub-par adventure games in mid 80s, except this game which turns out to be a surprisingly interesting adventure about the influences ... with its own character and coded metaphors about your real life. Some puzzles are annoying, and there are many horrible deaths to die, but the weird plot manages to carry the game right to the end.
Review 1: Duckman: The Legend of the Fall is a very well done adventure game with the same kind of interface seen in the many popular adventure from 1995 and later on and especially a game like Beavis ... little or no difficulty, while experienced gamers will be able to finish it in a few sittings. Still, great humor and plot makes Duckman a good game that's well worth a play through for everyone.
Dungeon of Shalan is a primitive adventure/action maze game that plays like a clone of Atari's classic Indenture. Your task is to find the evil Shalan in his dungeon and kill him. But before that, you ... there is fast-paced real-time action like in an arcade game. It's an admirable effort that unfortunate falls short due to limited gameplay and repetitive monsters and mazes. Thumbs down for this one.
The best ansi-game ever! Much levels.
The second game by Simulmondo based on the horror stories of Dylan Dog is a complete change from its predecessor Dylan Dog - The Murderers. With a better plot, combined with their nice graphics and music, ... dialogues and a longer plot would have made this a true gem. Overall, a challenging horror game that no adventurer should miss (despite the poor English translation), and Simulmondo's best game ever.
