Little Big Adventure

Adeline 1994
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Little Big Adventure' is probably a typical game of the widely spread 'action-adventure' genre. First a story which carries the game to satisfy the adventure part: The inhabitants of the fictional planet Twinsun suffer from the terror regime of the tyrant FunFrock. He has the power to produce clones which control and suppress the people with Big-Brother-like methods. One of the victims is Twinsen, who is in search for a magical legend of the planet to overthrow FunFrock and liberate the poor people. This rebel rolemodel is up to the player so he can fully live up to his insurgence phantasies. For complete disaster Twinsens wife gets kidnapped which brings up even more urge for revenge and activates protective instincts.

Little Big Adventure 2

Adeline Software International 1997
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Little Big Adventure 2 (known as Twinsen's Odyssey in America) is the sequel to Little Big Adventure, made by the developers of Alone in the Dark. It is an action adventure and the gameplay has hardly been changed compared to the predecessor. Nevertheless, LBA2 manages to outmatch it in every respect.

Little Blue Men

Michael S. Gentry 1998
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Little Blue Men starts out as any regular office comedy: The neurotic protagonist is stuck in his dead-end job which consists of picking up paperwork from the in-tray, stamping it and putting it in the out-tray. Understandable that he hates his job, his workplace, his co-workers and his boss. Dilbert and Brazil are just two of the obvious influences here. However, there is another level to the game... and for those patient enough to play it to the very end, yet another surprise is waiting.

Little Computer People

Activision 1985
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

In the mid-90s, Tamagotchis - little annoying egg-shaped beeping virtual 'pets' - were really popular for some time. Later, there was the immensily successful (deserved!) PC game The Sims which gave the concept of the virtual 'goldfish tank' more complexity. But two decades before, this idea had already been put into a game! Little Computer People - the first scientifical simulation of life (not counting Alter Ego)!

Little Nemo: The Dream Master

Capcom 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

No, this isn’t based on the comic of the same name, but in the film. Still, this doesn’t matter much for a platformer like this one, which shyly attempts to get some new mechanics on the formula but in general is a typical one.

Little Samson

Taito 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

What to do when the big evil wipes away all your armies? Call a bunch of heroes, of course. And fuse them on a magical item so they can travel faster or something. Ok, who cares? Don’t pay much attention to the plot, as this is just a Megaman clone.

Livingstone supongo

Opera Soft 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As one can suppose from the title (which means "Livingstone I presume"), you are exploring Africa in search of doctor Livingstone. A thing that consists in jumping through platforms, avoiding enemies and traps, and using your set of tools.


Kingsoft 1992
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Which game would fit the description 'digital model railroad' best? Most people would say Railroad Tycoon. It doesn't quite fit, though, because of the economic aspects. For Märklin fans, it's mostly about controlling forks and setting routes. The perfectly fitting game: Locomotion.

Lode Runner

Brøderbund 1983
Genre: Action, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 400/800

In the Early Days™, computer games were still very much influenced by arcade games. Half of that is true for Lode Runner. The gameplay concerns a small figure running across platforms which are connected through ladders. It is collecting treasures while avoiding contact with the bad guys (the Bungelings). This sort of thing would work very well in an arcade environment.


Lucasfilm Games 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (EGA), PC (VGA)

1990 was the year of Monkey Island. So great, so successful that it overshadowed everything else - including this earlier product of the same company. Not to say this is an 'underground' game or a 'rarity' - quite the opposite. It was a best-seller and even today, it is one of the most widely known Adventure games. Just not as much as Monkey Island. And not as one-sided positively as Monkey Island...
