Shadow of the Comet

comet01.png
Infogrames 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The village of Illsmouth. A town hall, a post office, a tiny harbour and a few houses. Nothing special really, it's like the epitome of a comfortable hood, none of the modern-world related problems occur here.


Shadow Sorcerer

U.S. Gold / SSI 1990
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

When SSI started publishing officially-licensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons games in 1988, the "Gold Box" series came out swinging with Pool of Radiance, which made up for what it lacked graphically with a slavish recreation of the AD&D tabletop rules (including the availability in-game of pages of inscrutable polearms) and an engaging tactical turn-based combat system. The D&D game was no stranger to computer games, having served as the template and rules engine for the earliest hobbyist and even commercial CRPG titles like Ultima, Wizardry, and The Bard's Tale and had been licensed for "official" games in the past.


Shadow Warrior

3D Realms 1997
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

3D Realms, hot on heels of their recent success with Duke Nukem 3D a year earlier, released Shadow Warrior during the Spring of 1997. Shadow Warrior bears many resemblances with its predecessor Duke Nukem 3D, it shares the same but slightly improved build engine as well as sporting the adult themes that made Duke Nukem 3D so successful. In Shadow Warrior, you play as the protagonist Lo Wang as he battles against his former employer, now enemy, Master Zilla, leader of Zilla Enterprise. Lo Wang decides to quit his former group due to Master Zilla's nefarious plan to take over Japan using evil demons and monsters.


Shadowgate

Icom Simulations 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

It seems there is no fantasy world in which people can live happily and undisturbed by huge threats. This one is no exception. An evil Warlock is trying to summon a mystical monster - the Behemoth. You impersonate the good hero who has to stop him.


Shadowrun

shadowrun_00000.png
Dataeast 1993
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

He wakes up in the mortuary. He doesn't know where he is. He doesn't know who he is. The only clue is a small, torn piece of paper in his pockets, telling him the address of a bar...
Well, that's the interesting beginning of an uncommon game. Shadowrun is one of the few adventures which are really unique concerning their feeling. During the game, you are drawn into the atmosphere of this gloomy piece of fiction. A world of powerful companies and powerless countries. You are right in the middle of it. Without identity. Everywhere you are threatened by violent mercenaries, but you don't know why they chase you.


Shannara

Legend Entertainment 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Legend followed up their excellent Death Gate with a game which is quite similar on the surface. It uses the same game engine, graphics are similar and it is - again - based on a popular branch of fantasy novels: Shannara. The game isn't a direct 'port' of any book, but it takes place between the first two. Some evil warlock called Brona, whom the father of the game's protagonist Jak apparantely killed in the first book, is back. He can only be defeated with the 'Sword of Shannara' which in turn can only be used by offsprings of the Shannara family - namely you and your father.


Shaq Fu

Delphine / Ocean 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Strolling down the streets before a charity basketball game, Shaqueille O'Neil meets a cliché wise old man who tasks him to find a missing boy kidnapped in another dimension. Like, you know, it just happens when you are a modern-day hero! So "Shaq" enters a mysterious portal and finds himself in a strange world where he has to beat the information about the boy's whereabouts out of the monstrous inhabitants.


Shard of Inovar

01.png
Bulldog Software 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64
Simple games often also use simple graphics lead by practical means. The game is then carried by the solid gameplay foundation or – in the adventure genre – by a good plot. Shard of Inovar's plot, in any case, isn't a tired one at all. Just like the controls. Small pictograms on the sides of the screen trigger certain actions. Judged by the number of icons, the game is actually rather short and some symbols, like for example "swim", are never required to solve the game. Invoke, on the other hand, conjuring up a magic spell or following through a ritual, is used quite frequently. Yes, you guessed right: this takes place in the fantasy genre. Authors Les Hogarth and Clive Wilson were leading figures at Mastertronic at the time and they published this text adventure as part of a trilogy together with VENOM and KOBYASHI NARU also on other platforms than the C64. My quality expectations are somewhat high as I first dive in.

Shattered Pixel Dungeon

01.png
Evan Debenham 2014
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Android

Let's dive into this dungeon. No reason, other than it being great fun! But first, a bit of history.

Actually, there used to be a mobile version of Brogue at some point in the past. Though clearly, porting a game intended to be played on a large, landscape oriented screen using a full physical keyboard to a small, portrait oriented device with typically only a touchscreen can easily be considered a Herculean task. Interface clunkiness being just the tip of the iceberg of major obstacles.


Sherlock Holmes: Another Bow

holmes01.png
Bantam 1985
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Whole generations have been entertained and thrilled by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most popular character by now. 221b Baker Street has been turned into the museum of a person which never lived there and even never existed! And only because of the random (?) choice of an author who had no idea what he had just created. In fact, the character Sherlock Holmes is so well known that many people actually believe he is a historical character!
