La Abadía del Crimen

abadia01.png
Opera Soft 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A man was murdered on the abbey, and it is fray Francisco, a monk who has just arrived, the one in charge of discovering the culprit. And he must hurry, because in a few days inquisitor Bernardo Gui will arrive, and it will be better for everybody if he doesn't get mixed in all of this.


Labyrinth

Lucasfilm Games / Activision 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

There were Adventure games before SCUMM and aside from Sierra's endless Quests. Lucasfilm's first own foray into the genre was Labyrinth - an official offshoot of the movie of the same name (starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly).


Lancelot

Level 9 Computing 1988
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Sir Lancelot, the Brave - rescuing Prince Herbert from being married against his will and rescuing Sir Galahad from having sex with a castle full of virgins between sixteen and nineteen and a half... sorry, wrong story. Lancelot bases itself on Le Morte d'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, making it a slightly more serious take on the subject matter. Not that you'd guess from looking at the very Pythonic box cover.


Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny

Westwood Studios 1997
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As an heir you often stand before one of those big questions: How do you want to honour your predecessor's legacy? Are you going to stay true to your roots, or do you wish to go your own ways? As far as computer games are concerned the first one seems to be more profitable. For as much as people tend to complain about constant rehashes, the fact that there are endless series of suspiciously familiar titles, which only stall when the first real innovations start to show up, proves this strategy right. You certainly can count the number of games which successfully maintain the balance between the old (to count as a sequel) and the new (to be a game of its own) on one hand. One of the few that mastered this tightrope walk is Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny. And the best part of it is that there are signs of a very similar conflict in the story of the game itself.


Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos

Westwood 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4.7/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You are sent to get a magical stone, but then problems happen as usual. And you end with no kingdom backing you, and no good guy’s army, just the mean people’s one. What does it means? Oh, you know it well: you have just become the last hope for getting rid of the evil witch and her magical ring.


Laser Lords

Spinnaker Software / Philips Interactive Media 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: CD-i

In the early years of the CD-i's lifetime, it had received almost only very simplistic games; mostly adaptions of board games. Laser Lords marked the release of one of its first "full-sized" game concepts as usually found on computers/game consoles. Of course, the standards of size, length and scope for this new CD-based system had not yet been set. So everything was wide open for experiments and at least length-wise, Laser Lords turned into a massive one…


Last Action Hero

Psygnosis 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A whole bunch of unvoluntary humor! This game confirm several cliches at once.

1. A movie conversion

The game has nothing (really nothing) to do with the film. Some very short video excerpts are shown betweenthe levels but that's all. A few characters and settings from the film show up but they are futile.


Last Day of Summer

Doug Orleans 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

The exact plot remains sketchy: The protagonist, the son of a farmer, apparantely still young, but of unspecified age, goes to town alone to sell some cranberries. He wants to surprise his parents with the money he plans to bring back. It is not really clear what time this is; probably some unspecified past.

Law of the West

Accolade 1986
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

You know what would suck even more than living in a town where everyone does not only own a gun and always walks around carrying it, but is also trigger happy? Being the person who is obliged to uphold law and order in such a town. However, in a computer game where the worst thing which can happen to you is the game over screen, it can actually turn into fun.
