hi,
I am new to this board, having a problem, you could help me with:
when I read through all these game reviews, I immediately fall in love with this amiable font, that they used to create their text-based games with, in the early 80s. I attached a picture to show you, what I mean... However, I wasn't able to find a comparably windows-font. If somebody could help me out, that would be most kind of you, thanks.
(I have to improve my english, sorry)

look here: Image

I think there exists something, called Terminal or Courier (Not Courier New oder Modern!).
But as I'm not running a windows right now, I'm not too sure about it.

yes, terminal is pretty close to the font, shown on the picture, but there are some differences.
Anyway, thank you for the reference.

Have you tried 'System'? That's a font modelled after MS-DOS.

well, I hadn't tried it so far... thanks
But if you take a closer look at it, you'll see, that it is not exactly the font, that is shown on the picture... anyway, thanks for the hint

In that case, I'll have to check with my fonts back at home. It'll be a week until I have the chance to. By the way: What is this game?

You can find the game here.
Just typed the filename of the picture into the Google-image-search and found that page ;)
The main page, where you can find more of these games, is located there.

As promised, I've gone through my fonts. None is exactly like that I guess, but there are a few which come close:

Adore 64
Amiga Forever Pro 2
DeluxeFont
PC Senior
Press Start
The Secret of Monkey Island
