The Legacy

legacy01.png
Microprose 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A haunted mansion that looks more like a maze, lots of monsters and both of your fists. What else could be needed for what basically is a dungeon crawler on a lovecraftian setting?

Maybe more people. Having just one character is a drown-back, but just for the carrying capacity. Everybody knows dungeon crawlers are all about fighting, but trying to hack with four different guys at the same time isn't always well handled.


The Legend of Ragnarok

Imagitec / Gametek 1993
Genre: Strategy, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

This review is part of The Review Roundup - Round 1: Games Related to the End of the World

Norse mythology has its very specific version of how the world is going to end. The world will fall into a deadly winter, and all kinds of natural catastrophes will occur. Monsters will rise from the depth in which they hid. The monsters will ally with the giants, facing the gods and heroes. In this final battle between good and evil, everybody will perish - including the chief god Odin.


The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo 1986
Genre: RPG, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

You thought we were too nerdy, and would say this is too much of a mainstream game for us, didn't you? Well, we may be, but still it's one of the most important console adventure/RPG games, mostly because it created a brand new genre which, sadly, is nearly dead.


The Lords of Midnight

Beyond Software 1984
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum
Sometime, the time is just right. In 1984, along with its contemporary Elite, The Lords of Midnight broke completely new ground. To really understand how revolutionary it felt, you have to take yourself back to the computer gaming world of the early 1980s. The video game console market had just crashed. Somewhat affordable computers were slowly making their way into people's homes (hence "home computers"), but gaming-wise, the formulae inherited from the arcades and already imitated by said failed game consoles were still the norm: simplistic twitch gameplay, usually on a single or few screens. The only thing added in home computer context was the occasional puzzle or board game, ported over straight from the physical world. And then, out of nowhere, these new games came along.

The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes

Electronic Arts 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A young actress has been brutally murdered right behind the theatre. It looks like Jack the Ripper has found his first victim outside Whitechapel: the poor woman's throat has been cut and there are more wounds which could only have been inflicted with a scalpel all over the body. Inspector Lestrade from Scotland Yard is leading the investigation - and he asks the world's first, most famous and only consulting detective for help: Sherlock Holmes.


The Lost Tribe

Lawrence Productions 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Suddenly the mountain where you, along your tribe, lived exploded. Lava and stones covered the village, killing the chief and his best hunters, and creating a wasteland where the village was. The elders have chosen to find the home of the ancestors, and you will have to guide them through one of the six paths to your objective. But the ways are dangerous and a bad chief isn't forgiven.


The Lost Vikings

Interplay 1993
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As I write this review/manual I assume you know nothing at all about the game. That's because anyone who has ever played The Lost Vikings will never forget it and won't need a manual or a review to get started again.


The Lost Vikings 2: Norse By Norsewest

Blizzard Entertainment 1995
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

Initially, Lost Vikings 2 was released for the Super Nintendo in 1995. Sprite characters models were taken directly from the first part and only slightly improved. The idea of the game has not changed – we still need to combine the unique abilities of the characters to pass each level.


The Lurking Horror

lurking01.png
Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It all started out as a completely normal day at G.U.E. Tech: Only one evening left to finish your assignment, and there's a snowstorm blazing outside. For the lack of an alternative, you defy the forces of nature and fight your way to the computer lab where you plan to finish the document you've already started writing. As usual, there's a lone hacker tapping away in a dark corner of the room. You open your document, but it's not quite what you expected - certainly not the draft of your paper. Even worse, no matter how hard you try, you can't even figure out what it is. Strange visions engulf you, and that's only the beginning of the horrifying adventure which will lead you into previously unknown caverns deep below the campus...


The Manager

bmp_000.png
Software 2000 1992
Genre: Sport, Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Manager is an excellent soccer simulation game that is unfortunately much less popular than Championship Manager, current champion of the genre. While Bundesliga Manager, the game's German league equivalent, sells very well in Europe and is being continually updated, this England league counterpart was discontinued years ago.
