sciv_001.png
Sierra 1989
Genre: RPG, Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Hero season is on! Having graduated from Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School you pack your stuff and seek the nearest station to exercise your valour and might in pursuit of a new respectful title. A swell opportunity was waiting just around the corner. After a short travel and crossing over the mountain range you wound up in Spielburg Valley - a small area surrounded by woods and in the center of it a fictitious medieval/fantasy german town. And lo! There seems to be plenty of work just for a zealous adventurer like you...


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'.


King's Quest 1: Quest for the Crown

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6

System: Amiga

You are Sir Graham, noble knight in some medieval kingdom at the court of the old King Whatever. The king apparantely has some magical powers, because he can control when he wants to die! And he has decided to walk over the Styx once he has finally gotten his collection of stereotype king-stuff (magical mirrors, unlimited treasure chests and such) complete. Lil' King is too busy sitting on his throne gazing at the walls to find the last three missing pieces himself, so he gives the job to one of the guys who always hang around in the castle grinning and saying 'yes, my lord': Sir Graham. In return, Graham is promised to inherit the crown.


King's Quest 2: Romancing the Throne

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

With the incredible success of King's Quest 1, it didn't take long for Sierra Online, directed by co-owner Roberta Williams, to release a sequel. Just a year after releasing KQ1, KQ2: Romancing the Throne, was released. However, it didn't receive the praise that the original obtained. Many people felt that the game was too short, the story to simplistic and the characters had no development. Some thought it was just a quickly slapped together game that lacked any real depth or good story telling.


King's Quest 5: Absence Makes the Heart go Yonder!

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Graham the King comes back in one of the best known Sierra's sagas. King's Quest V – Absence makes the heart go yonder was the very first game to be released in languages other than English. This is something that sounds normal today, but back in the 90s was incredible news for graphic adventure fans all over the world. English was a real issue for me and my brothers as kids. "To drop"?? Oh my God, what do they mean? What do they want from me, to enjoy playing a game or are they trying to make me learn something??

- Grandmother, what big eyes you have!
- Because I'm a troll, my child.

No, I'm not mistaken with the fairytale – this is what Rosella, young princess of Daventry kingdom, could say one day if you won't help her escape a troll's marriage. She didn't want to get married, but you can't trick the fate: poor girl has fallen into enchanted pond, and now the one who wants to marry her – the king of trolls.
