221B Baker Street

221b01.png
Datasoft 1986
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Some board games can be converted into computer games perfectly, because their rules are simple and logically structured enough. 221B Baker Street is such a case.

30 cases in classic style of Doyle's shorter Holmes stories are waiting to be solved by the player(s). As it was common back in the 80s, the nicely written introductions to these aren't presented 'in-game', but they can all be found in the accompanying casebook.


3 Skulls of the Toltecs

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

Arizona, 1866. Fenimore Fillmore, the young (actually, he looks like he's 12 years old) hero of our story, accidently stumbles across the secret of three golden skulls which unlock the way to the treasure of the Toltecs. One of these skulls is already in his possession. Two other ones have yet to be located, but at least he knows who has them.


9:05

Adam Cadre 2000
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

You wake up from the phone ringing. A voice tells you you were supposed to start your presentation at the office at 9. Your gold watch tells you it's already 9:05. Apparantely having slept in your soiled clothes, you ponder your next move...


A Journey into Xanth

Neil Sorenson 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This is a must for every Xanth-Fan! I always loved the great books of Piers Anthony and searched hard for any computer-games based on it. Long before I was able to get my hands on the graphical adventure I found this game (and lost it when my harddisk crashed).


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!

A New Beginning

000001.png
Daedalic Entertainment 2010
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It's an old custom that worlds should die in a spectacular fashion, and this time it's the turn for solar flare to destroy all life on the planet. Of course, there are people who want to stop that from happening and they go for the obvious solution: traveling back in time to convince people they should save their ecosystem and invest in renewable energy sources.


Abenteuer Europa

SPD 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Before he was banished from public view in order to stay in the pool or 'fly' over the fields forever, Rudi Scharping was the head of one of the biggest political parties in Germany: the SPD. In 1994, he managed to lose the most important election in spite of all polls having been in favour of the SPD mere weeks earlier. A few months before that, the results of the election of the European parliament turned out even worse for them. In spite of (or because of?) this game.


Adventure

Mr Creosote 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

The first text adventure I wrote. Story has been ripped off a Mickey Mouse comic with just the character names removed.

Puzzles are virtually nonexistent, the 'parser' only understands commands which have been hardcoded into the game.


Adventure

Atari 1980
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Human beings have the compulsive urge to classify everything, to put things into labelled drawers. That is why websites like this one have all these badges for their game entries, like "genres" or "themes". It must have been a great time before these had been firmly established and turned into trite clichés. This game, being roughly as old as myself, certainly comes from such a time. Although its exact publication date is a matter of discussion, it was definitely developed before I was born, as developer Warren Robinett already left Atari in 1979.


Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express

Orient01.jpg
AWE Productions / The Adventure Company 2006
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Poor Hercule Poirot. Not only is he always mistaken for a Frenchman, but in the collective mind of popculture, he will always remain second choice after Sherlock Holmes. It may actually be deserved, seeing that he was indeed created as a Holmes-imitation (or homage?). Then again, after appearing in so many popular stories, you could think he should have emancipated himself by now. Talking about popular stories, Murder on the Orient Express arguably is his signature investigation. The confined setting of the stranded train on which a murder occurs and the following interview marathon can be seen as seminal motifs of the classic mystery genre as a whole. It is also incredibly hard to transform this into an entertaining game.
