The Quest for the Holy Grail

grail01.png
Dream Software 1984
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

The Quest for the Holy Grail - a classic movie of epic proportions. Even though I've been able to quote virtually the whole movie from memory for years, I still watch it all the time, and each time, it cracks me up (the Political Peasants scene got me through some pretty bleak times back at university). This, unfortunately, can't be said about this game.


The Savage Empire

Origin 1990
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

On earth, an experiment with the moonstone the Avatar got on his last adventure goes awry and carries him, along a professor and a reporter, to the lost Valley of Eodon, where dinosaurs and humans live together.


The Secret of Monkey Island

Lucasfilm Games 1991
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (VGA)

My name is Guybrush Threepwood. I want to be a pirate. What, you don't know what I'm talking about? Where have you been since 1990? The only excuse I will accept is this: searching treasure on a cut-off island with vegetarian cannibals, a hermit waiting to be rescued even though he has already built a boat and a giant monkey head!


The Settlers

Blue Byte 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
English version of Die Siedler. Since there is almost no language used in the game at all, the difference is hardly noticable.

The Shadow of the Third Moon

Black Blade Design / Titan Computer 1998
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Mobygames isn't omniscient. There. I've said it. Heresy? Then show me where they cover this game (ok, ok, I'm aware this might change, I'm refering to the time of writing, of course). Yet, it obviously exists.


The Spy Who Loved Me

Domark 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

My name is Bond - James Bond! This game is based on the movie starring Roger Moore. I suppose everyone has seen at least one James Bond movie, so I won't explain what that is...

Domark took the action parts of it and put them into levels which are only loosely connected with short text-based explanations about the story. Most levels are basically the same. You see your vehicle from top and have to reach the level's exit without being killed. These vehicles are either a Lotus Esprit (driving on the road or diving under water!) or a small motor boat. From time to time an enemy appears and you have to shoot him. If you don't have any missiles left, it doesn't matter too much - just let him drive in front of you and avoid his shots! Sometimes a big truck labelled 'Q' appears in front of you. Don't try to destroy or overtake it (like I did when I first played the game 10 years ago ;) - It's your friend 'Q' who 'sells' you equipment for the 'Q'-coins you've selected before!


The Superhero League of Hoboken

Legend Entertainment 1994
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The Superhero League of Hoboken is another hilarious game written by Steve Meretzky for Legend Entertainment. After a nuclear apocalypse, mutations caused by the resulting glowing garbage and "decaying Nintendo packages" have turned most harmless everyday things into horrible monsters. They've also given some humans incredible superpowers – like being able to raise a foe's cholesterol or make fantastic flow-charts. What were once small towns are now "thriving" city-states, protected by "Superhero Leagues" – and you play as the leader of the worst one… in Hoboken.

The Terminator

Bethesda Softworks LLC 1991
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This is a very interesting game considering Bethesda's later history. It is their first ever attempt at an open world game, years before the famous Elder Scrolls series. And it is very much an indicator of things to come, because it is also an incredibly unfinished, buggy, overly ambitious, nigh-unplayable hunk of glorious junk that has such a great concept that, as you play it, you find yourself longing for a better version of the same game.


The Terminator: Rampage

rampage_000.png
Bethesda Softworks LLC 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Terminator: Rampage (also known as Terminator: Rampage) was released by Bethesda Softworks in 1993, the third game in the Terminator series from Bethesda, after The Terminator (1990) and The Terminator 2029 (1992).


The Test is Now READY

TheTestIsNowReady01.png
Jim Warrenfeltz 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

The basic questions of morality will never be answered definitely to everyone's satisfaction. In spite of countless generations having discussed them to death, when push comes to shove, humans still mostly react based on instict, and that is probably even good, because all too often, the result of too much contemplation is total self-inflicted impotence, i.e. it prevents any action. The Test is Now READY is a morality piece which attempts to force the player to make tough decisions for which there are no 'right' answers. It presents five situations, each of which gets right down to its core dilemma.
