Airtaxi

number_18-46-49.png
Sebastian Pech 2001
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The universe of good computer game ideas may be large, but it is nowhere infinite. Ingenious ideas don't grow on trees, but they are rather rare like pearls. So it is not surprising that programmers – and those who wish to become one – often fall back to trusted and tried concepts instead. When one's own creativity is added to it, the original hopefully turns into an original clone. In this gaming universe, one well known means of transport is Space Taxi, which inspired a number of clones.

Alien Incident

GameTek 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It is the night of Helloween and a mad professor sporting a stereotypical Einstein haircut is experimenting with his latest invention: a worm hole generator. Lightning strikes in just the right (or wrong?) moment and an alien as well as the creatures on its trail along with their space ship are catapulted right into Earth's orbit.


Bloodnet

Microprose 1993
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The time has come. The night of all nights has arrived, where I will dive into darkness. Evil awakens and a nightmare comes true: Dracula rules our city of New York and the lord of darkness is also the head of the local corporation for cyber-genetics, cyber-space, cyber-surgery, cyber-technology, cyber-weapons and cyber-surveillance. Appropriately, it has been a very long time since the city has seen any light; we are in an apparently endless night.


DADD: Der Aufstand der Dinge

dadd_001.png
VGA 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Mutiny of the Things for sure made me curious of what's inside, as it hardly provides any hint of what it will be. Things can, by definition, not be alive or even stage a mutiny. The intro, styled as a newspaper interview, tells me of our hero (Jack Flash) who plans to use his so-called Succ-O-Matic to literally suck the life out of these animated things again.


Die Sage von Nietoom

4th Generation Studios / Kingsoft 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Grandfather Wando is dying. Marco primarily remembers him as a great teller of fairy tales. Though now, the old man actually claims that it is all true: the fabled land of Nietoom can be reached through a magic portal directly from this very house. Is he already delirious? No, Marco of course takes it all dead seriously and starts searching.

KULT: The Temple of Flying Saucers

Exxos 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Atypically for an Adventure game, your own character will not appear on screen. Instead, the current view is the player's perspective. The viewpoint, however, is not scaled to size, as all the other figures are shown very small. Lacking a concrete reference object, maybe even an animated sprite, the active role of the player is reduced to observer. You never have the feeling of actually entering scenes, but only pick them through logical links and passages. The effect is increased by having the transition between rooms happen abruptly and in some cases, the newly entered room will be shown from a completely changed perspective.


Mine Cave

Genre: Action, Puzzle

Licence: Freeware
System: C64
To me, retro has always been associated to fun. The Youtube video made by the guys who created this gem was fun. They are not trying to impress with wastefully expensive animation played on a 100+Hz screen and orchestra sounds booming from the speakers.

Neuromancer

neuro_000.png
Interplay 1988
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In the 1980s, William Gibson co-founded the Cyperpunk genre with his book Neuromancer and even today, he still belongs to the canon of SciFi authors absolutely worth reading. A certain Timothy Leary – LSD guru of the hippie generation, visionary and "psychedelic researcher" – put the idea of adapting the book towards the developer Interplay, excited by the new capabilities of computers and the fascinating idea of the Internet. After first versions for the Amiga and C64, the PC finally got its turn in 1988.


Nightlong: Union City Conspiracy

nightlong01.png
Trecision 1998
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
In this cyberpunk adventure's intro, we witness Joshua Reevs receiving a new task. Several technical achievements, like the hover board or the aircar, have become commonplace in every day life of 2099 in the twilight of omnipresent neon billboards located in run-down corners of shady districts. Those are inhabited by gangsters, thieves and day labourers, and order is only barely maintained through the constant droning of the giant screens, but also such respectable law enforcement officers as Joshua, whose military instincts have been sharpened fighting on the front lines. None other than the governor of Union City, capital of America's New Order, Hugh Martens, is the customer acting quite mysteriously. The almost omnipotent mega-corp Genesis, exerting its power on the government through straw men, has been threatened and attacked by an underground terrorist group. One of the gouvernor's agents, disguised as a journalist, has not returned from a meeting with the terrorists. So Mr. Reevs, aka the player, finds himself on top of the apartment building where said agent Simon Ruby used to live.

Normality

norm_000.png
Gremlin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Normality throws the player into a dystopian metropolis leaning towards the psychedelic. Right in the middle of it, you take over the role of a teenager in his fourties called Kent who finds himself in his flat which has gone under in total chaos. Due to the game being classified as appropriate for six-year-olds, there are no beer bottles, porn magazines or even a huge, filthy bong to be found. Instead, there is just a boob tube, a dripping faucet and a permanently nodding tumbler bird. The run-down gloominess of Neutropolis does not fit with the good-natured and carefree mind of the protagonist.
