Alley Cat

Synapse Software / IBM 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This early IBM PC masterpiece is Billy Williams' 1984 port of his 8-bit Atari game of the previous year.

The game starts in an alley with trash cans, moving clothes lines and randomly opening windows. You climb up and avoid dogs, mice bites and junk flying out of the windows to enter one of five types of rooms. You might dive into a fishbowl to catch fish among electric eels, chase mice hiding in a huge wedge of cheese, tiptoe between a room full of sleeping dogs to eat their food, drop a birdcage and catch the canary, or knock over vases on top of a bookshelf guarded by a spider.

Infogrames 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft's works. So you can expect a decent horror atmosphere. And that's what the game is all about: the atmosphere! It is created mainly be the presentation. The graphics are an attempt to be as movie-like as possible. You're playing in third-person perspective. The perspective changes depending on the spot where your alter ego stands. You are of course always visible, but from different directions and angles! When walking around you sometimes have the feeling of real movie-cuts.


Ambermoon

Thalion 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Ambermoon is an action RPG made in 1993 by Thalion. Back at the time, it was one of the first role playing games with 3D graphics moving freely in a 360° surrounding. These elements are mixed with a 2D overhead map view. Other games like the Eye of the Beholder trilogy also had a 3D engine, but only in 45° tracker style. What all these games had in common was the unique story. Challenging, motivating and very well told.

Ancient Domains of Mystery

Thomas Biskup 2002
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

If there is one game that professional developers and publishers hate, it's Ancient Domains of Mystery (ADOM). The final version (1.0) released in late 2002, this freeware role-playing game that fits on a single floppy offers an unprecedented depth of character development and a length of gameplay that easily matches the longest games ever released. In fact, ADOM offers more replay value than any game released in the 21st Century, and unlike many of those games, it remains fun no matter how often you replay it.

Have you ever heard about Napoleon? Yeah, the genial goblin-like garlic-eater. It's strange how along the time, the good games that had a look at this formidable person...simply failed to appear.
