Ducks Ahoy!

CBS Software 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Ducks Ahoy! This was one of the first games I played on the C64. So this may not turn into the most "objective" review I've ever written. The funny thing is: when I picked it up for review again, I did this assuming nobody knew about it anymore – that it had faded into total obscurity. Very brief Internet research proved me wrong. In fact, it seems to be many people's "one of the first games", as some gushing testimonials document. My turn to chime in.

Duke Nukem 3D

3D Realms Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

When Duke Nukem 3D was first released back in 1996, it took the video game industry by storm. At the time of its release, it was rare to find any game that had any sort of mature content, which in modern times is now commonplace, it followed the trails of the success of Doom, which saw Duke Nukem deviate away from its platforming roots to a much mature and darker first person shooter. The game takes place after the events of Duke Nukem II, where Duke returns from space and finds Earth overrun by aliens that are hell-bent on abducting all of Earth’s women and it’s up to Duke to save the day.


Cryo 1992
Genre: Strategy, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the best known pieces of fictional literature - beaten only by the bible and a few others. Millions of people have read it and even those who didn't at least know the name because they've seen the movie, they've just heard of it somewhere or they've played one of the computer games.

Dune 2000

Westwood / Intelligent Games 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A beginning is a very delicate time. So, how to start? With some dunes, which shall be stabilised by planting grass on them? With megalomaniacal visions for a cinematic realisation of a highly sophisticated science fiction novel? At the source of a flood of real time strategy games, or one step further at the archetype, which got copied ad nauseam? All of this led, on more or less direct ways, to Dune 2000, a remake of its predecessor Dune II: Battle for Arrakis, with an updated interface, strongly inspired by Command & Conquer, and aesthetics that look like taken right out of Lynch‘s take on the space opera. A melange of many great examples, but does it live up to them? Does it dare to step out of its source’s shadows? Does it offer anything new? Or is it just an unoriginal rehash, simple cash cow cosmetics for a classic game? Let’s take a look!

Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty

Westwood / Virgin Interactive 1992
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Despite popular beliefs, there is nothing original about Dune II. Except of one thing, which enabled Westwood to become a powerhouse among games developers. As for gameplay, however, the game did not "revolutionarize", "create a new style of gaming" or "became the first of its kind." All it did was to combine several games already out in the market. The developer did this very skillfully, however, creating an unique experience and one of the most entertaining games ever.

Dungeon Hack

SSI 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Sent to a fort in search of a mystical orb, you will kill all that moves while descending levels towards the lower depths of the dungeon. All of it seen in first person through the graphical engine of the Eye of the Beholder trilogy.

Dungeon Keeper

Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In this game, you can be the bad guy for a change and stand up against the good guys. In the admittedly cynical Dungeon Keeper, you become an underground dungeon master whose goal it is to conquer the world above by defeating and destroying the reigning knight. Because this goal cannot be reached all alone, you have to recruit and train as many monsters as possible in your dungeon.

Dungeon Master

FTL 1989
Genre: RPG
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

If there ever is a list of computer games that changed the world of gaming forever, Dungeon Master would figure prominently on the top, among such classics as Civilization and Doom. Dungeon Master was not the first roleplaying game to be viewed from a first person perspective; that honor goes to Akalabeth by Richard Garriot. It wasn't the most difficult game, either. However, by combining a very unique spell casting system with real-time combat, unprecedented graphics and awesome sound, the game managed to create such an authentic atmosphere that only Ultima Underworld, many years later, was able to match it.

Dungeon Mercenary

hgames 2016
Genre: RPG

Licence: Freeware

In the area of Roguelikes, it is quite common that games remain in perpetual development, even after a "1.0" release. Keep in mind that the following review of Dungeon Mercenary (version 17-06-22) may not reflect the latest version available.
