Monty Python & the Quest for the Holy Grail

mpgrail01.png
7th Level 1996
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

932 A.D.... a group of knights in 14th century gear is stumbling around the country. Instead of horses, which they can't afford, their servants use coconut shells to simulate the appropriate medieval travelling sounds. It's King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table - on a mission from God to search for the Holy Grail. Which is a bit silly, because God should really know where it is, right? But does he tell his faithful servants? No, he sends them on a wild goose chase instead. What a meany!


Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time

7th Level 1994
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Expect the unexpected. Monty Python got famous for crushing those long-standing conventions of comedy. A sketch is going nowhere? Ok, just stop it in the middle without the obligatory punch line. You'd never know what'd happen next (which makes it all the more ironic that these days, people (including yours truly) have learned to quote whole passages from the TV show and the movies word-by-word - which kind of misses the point). It's only appropriate that this, the third computer game bearing the name of Python and the first of a series of three, escapes any regular definitions which are usually attributed to 'games'.


Monty Python's Flying Circus

Core Design / Virgin Games 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

My brain hurts! A Gumby stars in this genre combo from British publisher Virgin Games. Following the stream of consciousness logic of Terry Gilliam's cartoon bits found in the series, the Gumby's head is planted on a fish body for some levels and re-attached to his human body later again (only to be put on a bird later), so that the player is treated both with Jump'n'Run and (underwater and aerial) Shooter parts.


Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

7th Level 1997
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It's funny that Life of Brian, by far the most popular and successful Monty Python film, never got turned into a game. Complete Waste of Time may have been the software equivalent of Flying Circus and The Holy Grail was obviously the film of the same name, which was immediately followed by The Meaning of Life. Another 'game' oddity in a similar fashion as its predecessors.


Moonmist

Infocom 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The player takes over the role of an American detective who has attained some fame by solving tough cases. One day, he receives a letter from his old friend Tamara Lynd who's going to marry an English Lord soon. Back in her fiancée's castle, a ghost has started to appear again, targetting Tamara in specific. Is it actually the legendary 'White Lady' or the ghost of the recently deceased Deirdre? Or does everything have completely worldly causes? To solve all these questions, you've been invited to join your old friend over in the 'old world'.


Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight

Morkin II

morkin2_000.png
Anthony Hamilton 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Shades of Archon (but without the arcade style duels)… up to five wizards battle it out on an empty field. Empty for now, because after a couple of turns, their summoned armies will start to occupy significant amounts of space, sharpening their weapons and howling their battle cries before buckets of blood will paint the earth red.


Mortal Kombat

mk101.png
Midway 1993
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Playing Mortal Kombat is a pure pleasure. Or pain, depending how well you are doing. The game offers everything a lover of fighting games could wish for - fast paced action, tonns of moves, punches and kicks, all of which can get combined, decent opponents, each with special attacks and a lot of blood. In addition, some extras, such as small skill tests and the introduction of all characters makes the game very well rounded.


Mortal Kombat II

mk2_001.png
Midway Games 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Mortal Kombat II. Sequel to the fighting game that made gore a selling point, this game takes that to new heights, with new fatalities and combat techniques, different types of finishers, and a cast of twelve playable characters, two boss characters and two hidden characters for you to test your skill against.


Mortal Pong

Okay ladies and gentleman. I'll now invent a new kind of review. The "drunken re-review". "So what is this?!" you ask. Okay, lemme tell you:

I used to run a few abandonware sites years ago. I still have most reviews from back then and usually they're not very good. So - what should I do with them - throw them away? Nah, too easy! A while ago I gave the whole bunch to Mr Creosote and he picked out the few that were okayish. But what about the rest? I redid some and I forgot about the most of them.
