The Hours

hours01.png
Robert Patten 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

The Hours is a time-travelling organisation, sending agents into the past to carry out missions; not necessarily just those for the betterment of humanity – if a rich collector asks for something, much is possible. If it is doable within the laws of time travel at least, i.e. without changing history. The protagonist has just started working here. Her first mission has taken him to ancient Egypt. Together with Eric, an expert for ancient languages, she is supposed to steal a couple of books before the famous library of Alexandria will be devoured by fire. The mission goes horribly wrong – but, as it turns out, not quite by accident.


The House at the End of Rosewood Street

Michael Thomét 2013
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Mr Creosote] The House at the End of Rosewood Street is a game which has raised quite a few eyebrows with its players. It includes an interesting plot, it is stylistically well written, but it does not work as a game at all. I guess we agree this far?

Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Incident

KHAN Games 2015
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

The Incident is a 2015, sci-fi themed, sliding-puzzle game by independent NES developer KHAN Games. This game can be considered "homebrew" being self-published by the developer and distributed directly to customers on new cartridges compatible with original Nintendo hardware (NTSC at least; not sure about PAL) as well as certain NES clone systems. The player assumes the identity of a box-pushing robot that is reactivated 400 years after the unspecified "incident" and resumes its original purpose of moving boxes. This provides the premises for the Sokoban style game play and for the storyline which unfolds as the player completes puzzles.


The Incredible Hulk

U.S. Gold 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

I have to admit that I know nothing about this comic-myth 'Hulk'. But I'll try my best to do justice to him (?) in this review.
Hulk the Incredible - a character full of metaphors. Hulk the Human - he's like you and me. When it is the time again when his skin turns green and his muscles swell, he's standing on a street filled with shooting robots. Apocalypse now in a modern form. The Final Court. Even if it's unbelievable: At this point YOU get into the action. YOU are Hulk. Didn?t we all want to be him sometimes? The time has come now.


The Island

Andy Brown 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

A (working) serious tone is much harder to achieve in a game than a funny one. It lies within the nature of the text adventure genre that players will sooner or later hit inappropriate parser responses or error messages. In a comedy, this might be written off as merely goofy. In a game like The Island, which tries its hand at horror (or at least communicating uneasiness), it is much harder to sell.


The Island of Dr. Brain

System: PC

Now that you became Dr. Brain's assistant you've got your first job assigned to you: going to Dr. Brain's private island for recovering a battery necessary in an important new creation.


The King of Chicago

Cinemaware 1986
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The early and mid-90s - the wake of the CD-Rom as a games medium. Because the games themselves didn't need this space yet, tons of 'interactive movies' filled the shelves of the stores. Those were rarely more than a collection of movie clips and the players' only activity was to make a few (often pretty futile) decisions between the scenes. Many see 7th Guest as the beginning of this development.


The Last Express

Smoking Car Productions 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Robert Cath is a American doctor in his late 20s who has been kicked out of the medical establishment for his leanings towards mysticism and interest in ancient and esoteric forms of medicine. He spent the last few years of his life in Paris. Recently however, some of his research brought him to Ireland where he got caught between the fronts of the fight between the IRA and the British army. Suddenly, he's wanted by the police all over Europe - for murdering a policeman. Just then, an invitation to accompany him in the Orient Express to Constantinople from his old friend Tyler Whitney arrives. Cath decides this is the best way out, so he boards the train in Paris... or rather some kilometres later. He opens the door to his friend's compartment and finds him lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood - murdered. Cath has to find the murderer - and avoid being arrested for this crime as well as the other charges himself.


The Legacy

Microprose 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A haunted mansion that looks more like a maze, lots of monsters and both of your fists. What else could be needed for what basically is a dungeon crawler on a lovecraftian setting?

Maybe more people. Having just one character is a drown-back, but just for the carrying capacity. Everybody knows dungeon crawlers are all about fighting, but trying to hack with four different guys at the same time isn't always well handled.
