Castles II: Siege & Conquest

000001.png
Interplay 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Similarly to what happened in other sagas, the sequel made so many changes that they may as well have changed the title. But at the same time, it keeps enough of the original to please the fans, as long they also like board games.


Castlevania

Unlimited Software / Konami 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Released for the PC three years after its NES appearance, Castlevania is the first of a long series of horror platformers. That is, the first to bear the name "Castlevania". The game is a sequel to Vampire Killer, which appeared in Japan in 1986 for the MSX2 Home Computer system. This fact was apparent immediately for everybody who played the original games, as most sprites were directly taken from Vampire Killer, and only the backgrounds and music were improved.


Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

Konami 1988
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

There was a time when Nintendo sequels didn't want to be like the original. Don't ask me why, as it's one of those things Nintendo does from time to time, which may be seen as weird in the conservative world of videogames, but from time to time creates some unexpected items such as, in this case, a glimpse into the future of a famous series.


Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead

Kevin Granade 2013
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The beauty of open source: when the original developer of Cataclysm stopped, other people picked up the latest code base and extended it to create Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. A testament to the original's popularity at the time and a lucky break for all already dedicated and prospective players.

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):


CatFight: The Ultimate Female Fighting Game

Phantom Card 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

And now I'm proud to present... simply the worst fighting game ever made. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not a sexist, but the following product is as bad as it can get with or without women in it. This game offers everything your average player wouldn't tolerate: bad graphics, bad audio, bad moves, bad controls, and ultimately bad experience. And believe me, I'm only writing this review cause I had no choice in the matter and I seriously wish I could get away with just one screen and one big "crap" word occupying the review section.


Centurion: Defender of Rome

Bits of Magic / Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Centurion: Defender of Rome was one of those overly complex yet simplistic games that had their heyday in late 1980s and early 90s. Designed by Kellyn Beck, the mastermind behind Defender of the Crown, the game is built on the same principles, only set into a different time period.


Ceremony of Innocence

Real World Multimedia 1997
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Based on the Griffin and Sabine trilogy of books, by Nick Bantock, Ceremony of Innocence brings to life the story of an intense relationship carried out entirely through a mysterious exchange of exotic postcards and letters. Griffin Moss is a lonely postcard designer who one day receives a very odd card from a woman named Sabine Strohem—a card in which she states she has a psychic link to him and his artwork. So Griffin and Sabine begin the correspondence that forms the backbone of this surreal and haunting story.


Chamber of the Sci-Mutant Priestess

Draconian 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
This is an English-only alternative version of Kult, released in the USA. Apart from the title, there are no differences to the game.

Chambers of Shaolin

Thalion 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A fighting game which actually gives the whole punching and kicking some context? Unheard of! Not only does Chambers of Shaolin have some sort of story (a "save the princess" plot, which outside the genre wouldn't be all that special, but within the confines of the genre… well, you know what you usually get), but it even uses this to refine the usual gameplay. If I had been part of the marketing department at the time, I would probably have printed something about "role-playing elements" and "customized character development" on the box.
