Dune

duneprg_000.png
Cryo 1992
Genre: Strategy, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the best known pieces of fictional literature - beaten only by the bible and a few others. Millions of people have read it and even those who didn't at least know the name because they've seen the movie, they've just heard of it somewhere or they've played one of the computer games.


Dune 2000

Westwood / Intelligent Games 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A beginning is a very delicate time. So, how to start? With some dunes, which shall be stabilised by planting grass on them? With megalomaniacal visions for a cinematic realisation of a highly sophisticated science fiction novel? At the source of a flood of real time strategy games, or one step further at the archetype, which got copied ad nauseam? All of this led, on more or less direct ways, to Dune 2000, a remake of its predecessor Dune II: Battle for Arrakis, with an updated interface, strongly inspired by Command & Conquer, and aesthetics that look like taken right out of Lynch‘s take on the space opera. A melange of many great examples, but does it live up to them? Does it dare to step out of its source’s shadows? Does it offer anything new? Or is it just an unoriginal rehash, simple cash cow cosmetics for a classic game? Let’s take a look!


Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty

Westwood / Virgin Interactive 1992
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Despite popular beliefs, there is nothing original about Dune II. Except of one thing, which enabled Westwood to become a powerhouse among games developers. As for gameplay, however, the game did not "revolutionarize", "create a new style of gaming" or "became the first of its kind." All it did was to combine several games already out in the market. The developer did this very skillfully, however, creating an unique experience and one of the most entertaining games ever.


Dungeon Hack

SSI 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Sent to a fort in search of a mystical orb, you will kill all that moves while descending levels towards the lower depths of the dungeon. All of it seen in first person through the graphical engine of the Eye of the Beholder trilogy.


Dungeon Keeper

Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In this game, you can be the bad guy for a change and stand up against the good guys. In the admittedly cynical Dungeon Keeper, you become an underground dungeon master whose goal it is to conquer the world above by defeating and destroying the reigning knight. Because this goal cannot be reached all alone, you have to recruit and train as many monsters as possible in your dungeon.


Dungeon Master

FTL 1989
Genre: RPG
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

If there ever is a list of computer games that changed the world of gaming forever, Dungeon Master would figure prominently on the top, among such classics as Civilization and Doom. Dungeon Master was not the first roleplaying game to be viewed from a first person perspective; that honor goes to Akalabeth by Richard Garriot. It wasn't the most difficult game, either. However, by combining a very unique spell casting system with real-time combat, unprecedented graphics and awesome sound, the game managed to create such an authentic atmosphere that only Ultima Underworld, many years later, was able to match it.


Dungeon Mercenary

hgames 2016
Genre: RPG
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

In the area of Roguelikes, it is quite common that games remain in perpetual development, even after a "1.0" release. Keep in mind that the following review of Dungeon Mercenary (version 17-06-22) may not reflect the latest version available.


Dunkle Schatten

Art Department 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

"Dunkle Schatten" (Dark Shadows) was released during the "Fairständnis" campaign of the German Ministries of Inner Affairs in 1994. The slogan was "respect human rights - against racial hatred", the development was executed by Art Department, a company well known for its advertising games at that time.


East vs West: Berlin 1948

Rainbow Arts 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The early days of the Cold War. The USSR is blocking all land transports to the western sectors of Berlin. The USA have initiated an air bridge to supply the city. But Berlin is like a tiny island in what is going to be the GDR - when it comes to war, it'll be overrun by the Red Army immediately!


Eco Quest: The Search for Cetus

scidhuv_001.png
Sierra 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Mr Creosote] The first part of Eco Quest, which we will be discussing today, came out in the early 90s. Much later than the start of most of Sierra's 'endless' Adventure game series. Consequently, it did not turn into a long series anymore: Only two parts have ever been released. So, let's begin with the first one, subtitled 'The Search for Cetus'.
