Hunter Hunted

Sierra On-Line 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

3D is just so much more immersive! With the release of Doom, the gaming world changed. Side scrollers, which had been the big thing before, which even had had whole computer systems designed just for them, suddenly looked so old-fashioned and nobody needed all those layered graphics and hardware accellerated sprites anymore. When even Mario went 3D, all seemed lost. All? No, a small group of idealists still resisted. Just surprising that, of all game producers, Sierra – the epitome of square – was part of this rebel fraction standing against the mainstream. Who would have thought?


JONES in the Fast Lane

Sierra On-Line 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Just like many other Sierra games, JONES in the Fast Lane was developed with the Sierra Creative Interpreter. Nevertheless, it is not an Adventure game. In retrospect, you could say it is a kind of turn-based 'The Sims breaking out'.


Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out!

Sierra On-Line 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Congratulations, you have lost! Yes, that's exactly how you start this brand new adventure, Larry. You were invited to the "Stallions" TV contest show, where you were hardly a "stallion" anyway, still you have surpassed all expectations and once again successfully retained your title as unparalleled buffoon! But dig this, pal, by losing so adorably you get yourself a free ticket to vacation you would never afford under ordinary circumstances, which is a part of the contract you weren't aware of in the first place! "Ya ain't gettin' away now, lovuhboy!" – whispered your mischievous fortune...


Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards

Sierra On-Line 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The moment you start up this game, you know you're in for a treat. The cheesy music, accompanied with two-and-a-half colours active on screen and an intro featuring a dork in a white tuxedo, chasing what appears to be, a blow-up doll. Yes, welcome in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.


Manhunter: New York

Sierra On-Line 1988
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Manhunter: New York was by all accounts one of the most unique adventure games of its time. In addition to a brand new approach to Sierra adventures, it featured a very original story, a very good atmosphere, but also weak graphics, interface and gameplay. I would think that it was the gameplay that sentenced the game to obscurity, which, however, was not deserved.


Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter

Sierra On-Line 1991
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6

System: PC

[Wandrell] We are talking about a nice remake. Maybe if you have played the Quest series you'll remember that, back at the beginning, they were not like the mouse-driven games we know. Until someone decided to make a remake of the original game of each saga. And one of them is the game we are going to talk about.


Space Quest II: Vohaul's Revenge

Sierra On-Line 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Released only a few months after Space Quest I, the sequel, named Vohaul's Revenge has brought little new. In fact, if I felt nasty and unthankful, I'd say that the game was one of the first cash cows in the history of PC gaming. By today's standards I'd be right - inept puzzles, the same graphics, lack of the same humor I remembered from the first part and a very short gameplay would automatically qualify a game as a rip-off. At least in my eyes; in fact such games seem to be very successful and highly regarded by certain gaming magazines. Back in the days, however, we were happy for the little we got and paid for it accordingly.


Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon

sciv_000.png
Sierra On-Line 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In retrospective, some years seem to make complete sense. For example, 1989 was a year in which the moons were properly aligned and the world seemed a better place (at least for me). It was the year we were treated with great movies like "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and "Back to the Future Part II". Our hips moved with the rhythm of the music from Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" from Tears For Fears. Yes, 1989 definitely was a good year to be alive. It was also the year Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon came out.


Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers

Sierra On-Line 1991
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6

System: PC

Space quest 4, the next game in the brilliant Space Quest series is a great adventure game. The first of the space quests to feature the point and click adventure mechanics, rather than text typing. I prefer the typing interface as I learnt how to spell English words by playing these games. The point and click games are fun, but do not help you learn as much as the typing games.


Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter

Sierra On-Line 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Back in the mid-1980s, computer games were created by their fans. It so happened that two guys, Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy decided that they would like to play King's Quest in a science fiction setting. After being initially rejected by Ken Williams who ran Sierra at the time, they created a small demo to show him they could pull it off. They got the job...
