A Mind Forever Voyaging

AMFV01.png
Infocom 1985
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
A Mind Forever Voyaging was originally released in 1985 by Infocom. Penned by Steve Meretzky, who also wrote Planetfall, Sorcerer, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, AMFV is different than most other contemporary Infocom adventures. It has only one real puzzle close to the end of the game, focusing instead on exploring the richly detailed story – and what a story it is!

Ballyhoo

Infocom 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In spite of a few visits as a kid, I've pretty much always been quite a cynic about the circus. Ballyhoo is all about the circus. So insert your favourite fuzzy stereotypes here as I'll neither be listing them, nor be talking about 'the magic' or whatever. This game is set in the circus. The owner's daughter has been kidnapped and she's held for ransom. The player has to find her, because the detective who has been hired to investigate is a clueless drunk.

Westwood / Infocom 1988
Genre: Strategy, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A unique blend of role-playing, tactical strategy and adventure, Battletech: The Crescent Hawk Inception was one of Infocom's first forays into graphical gaming. For years, the company ruled the text-based gaming, and with this ambitious product, wanted to cross over to the increasingly popular graphics-based games. Developed by Westwood's finest, the game became immensely popular, despite its balancing issues and weak graphics.


Border Zone

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Wandrell] Infocom takes us back to the times of Cold War, in a classic tale of spies the two blocks collide, and only you can stop an evil plot before time runs out.

[Herr M.] That is, the authors throw you in the role of three of the said spies, who find themselves in a small imaginary country near the west-east border, where a high ranking ambassador is going to be assassinated.


Bureaucracy

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Infocom's text adventures are known to be the best. Their game engine with its great parser was used for a large variety of masterpieces. Bureaucracy is one of those. What it makes superior to most of its "colleagues" is the hilarious plot. It was written by Steve Meretzky (Leather Goddesses of Phobos, Stationfall) and the well known author Douglas Adams. The two had collaborated before to convert Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy into a game.

Industrialist Marshall Robner has been found dead in his library. The room had been locked from the inside, and an overdose of the anti-depressants he had been taking has been found in his blood. A clear case of suicide? The responsible inspector seems to think so. The deceased's lawyer provides you with an interesting piece of informaton: Only days earlier, Robner said he wanted to change his will. It never came to that. How does that fit into the suicide theory? You're asked to investigate once again to see if your colleague was right about what he found.


Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Finally. Finally I have the guts to put this up. My childhood love. My introduction to the Interactive Fiction world. Aah.

Based upon a world famous series of books by world renowned Science Fiction author Douglas Adams (who also wrote Starship Titanic, great game, it has the very best in sarcastic game humour you'll ever see), this game sets you as the loser Arthur Dent in one hell of a mess.


Infidel

_infidel_000.png
Infocom 1983
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Adventuring started in the caves… the common themes of almost all early adventure games, whether they took place in the murky depth of a cave or even outside was that they were treasure hunts: The player's task was always to find special treasure items and collect or often also retrieve them to a safe place. Puzzles usually centered around physical manipulations of a relatively lifeless environment, mostly to open blocked doorways and avoid traps. As for settings, simple sword & sorcery fantasy worlds dominated the picture. Infidel, set in the contemporary 1980 of our own world, marks an interesting transition from those basic roots towards more thoughtful undertones.
