Licence: Freeware

Prior Art 2015
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

On a normal workday, research chemist Caren discovers a headless human body in one of the biologists' tanks. Who does it belong to? What has happened? And why does anybody make a new Adventure game on the C64 in 2015? At least the last question is easy to answer: because they can!


Castle Adventure

Kevin Bales 1985
Genre: RPG, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

If this review had a title, it would be titled: "How to look for nice parts of a game".

The game in question is an adventure with very basic ASCII-graphics. It's been written by a single person, and uses a very basic parsing system. It won't understand many inputs. Always use two words, and keep trying until you get there. The story is a fantasy cliché, you're trapped in an evil castle and must escape, using a variety of keys, weapons and other objects to do so. You'll be fighting evil monsters, etc. Nothing new there. Sometimes it does remind you just a bit of a so-called "action RPG", but without the stats. This is due to the rather large amount of monsters that need slaying. Also, the text commands that can be inserted are rather unintuitive sometimes, so a bigger explanation might have been nice.


Castle Adventure

Ben Chenoweth 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Alert: Princess trapped in a dungeon below a castle; hero needed to rescue her! Castle Adventure delivers exactly what it promises: An old-school treasure hunt set first in a forest (where else?), then after a brief interlude in a cave going into a castle and its dungeon where you will encounter a mildly amusing, because completely politically incorrectly portrayed princess. Along the way, you will encounter predominantly undescribed or at least underdescribed locations which you have to map, nice and logical puzzles, mazes and lots of dead ends. To put it another way: It was a delight to play, because it did everything right – if you like this sort of thing which was heavily in style in style in the 80s.


Catch the Kreis

Dregenrocks 2001
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Catch the Kreis is a simple, yet fascinating arcade game. It resembles the huge coin-ups of the 70's and that where it draws its fascination from. You're an 'X' (controlled by the cursor keys) hunting a '0' on a board divided into squares. Very hectical - be sure to pump up enough adrenaline! But let's hear what the author has to say about the developement of the different versions (comments from Dregenrocks are in italics):


Chicken Invaders

InterAction Software 1999
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

There's only so much you can say about Space Invaders. Pretty much everything of that must have been said... a zillion times. This review won't be able to say anything new about the concept as such. This game - you expected it - is a Space Invaders clone. Not more, not less. It adds some standards to the general concept that all have been seen before in one or the other way. The idea behind it is shooting up the invaders or avoid getting hit from asteroids. That's pretty much it - there's some differences between the movements of the invaders and there's different asteroid levels - ah and... there's also a boss invader (which you won't see on the screenshots to leave at least a little surprise). So... that's it, case closed?


Claas APS-Spiel

? 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This game will probably be fairly unknown. It is a game which could be downloaded from the website of the manufacturer of agricultural machinery Claas a few years ago.

If you always wanted to drive a harvester, this game will be just right for you. That is because it is the game's sole purpose to drive around a field and harvest as much crop as possible. In that process, you have to avoid different obstacles and take care not to run over small hares or deer with your blades. Otherwise, the game will be over and if you have collected a sufficient amount of points, you can enter your name into the high score list.


Color the Truth

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Rosalita is being blackmailed, having embezzled some money from her own charity. Two days later, the aging radio station owner and show host is murdered in her own office. Her secretary saw the murderer: a very likely disguised man with a stubble. The investigation team already sweeped the place. Now it's up to the player to interview the four main suspects – the beneficiaries named in the victim's will, i.e. her sister (a flamboyant wannabe show star), her ex-husband (also her former colleague who went to the competition recently), her business partner and the secretary.


Contra

Banana Development 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Contra for DOS is a port of the original arcade game with the same title. Unfortunately, it is regarded as the poorest version of Contra officially released, despite being one of the more obscure titles.


Darkiss! Wrath of the Vampire - Chapter 2: Journey to Hell

Marco Vallarino 2016
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

I quite enjoyed the first part of this "saga" last year, so I was looking forward to this one. And then, the competition randomiser put it right at the bottom. Nevertheless, I made it! Anyway, there seems to be a jump in narrative compared to where the first one ended. There, vampire Martin Voigt had only just escaped his tomb. Now, he's already well on his way to fulfil his plans for world domination.
