Mortal Kombat

mk101.png
Midway 1993
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Playing Mortal Kombat is a pure pleasure. Or pain, depending how well you are doing. The game offers everything a lover of fighting games could wish for - fast paced action, tonns of moves, punches and kicks, all of which can get combined, decent opponents, each with special attacks and a lot of blood. In addition, some extras, such as small skill tests and the introduction of all characters makes the game very well rounded.


Mortal Kombat II

Mortal Kombat II. Sequel to the fighting game that made gore a selling point, this game takes that to new heights, with new fatalities and combat techniques, different types of finishers, and a cast of twelve playable characters, two boss characters and two hidden characters for you to test your skill against.

Okay ladies and gentleman. I'll now invent a new kind of review. The "drunken re-review". "So what is this?!" you ask. Okay, lemme tell you:

I used to run a few abandonware sites years ago. I still have most reviews from back then and usually they're not very good. So - what should I do with them - throw them away? Nah, too easy! A while ago I gave the whole bunch to Mr Creosote and he picked out the few that were okayish. But what about the rest? I redid some and I forgot about the most of them.

New York. Late afternoon. You were relaxing in your office muffled in clouds of tranquilizing smoke issuing from your cigar, your feet resting on that tiny spot of your desk luckily unoccupied by exorbitant piles of inconclusive evidence and other 3rd rate material you would never tend to, and enjoying in quiet solitary bliss what little was left of your coffee break... suddenly the blower went insane disrupting your sweet oblivion. "Detective X speaking", "X, we have received information regarding an audio tape finally proving the local mobster guilty of smuggling, blackmail and 1st degree murder. Hit the road on the double and locate the girl calling us - she knows where the tape is stashed and will take you to the mob's headquarters. Be careful though, the place is heavily guarded!", "Roger". Ok, bub, time to slip into your trenchcoat and show us some good MOVIE. Lights, Camera, Action!


Murder

U.S. Gold 1990
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Detective Adventures may not be the most common genre, but they do exist (especially here on this site). All of them are somehow linear in their story and limited in their puzzles. All but one: Murder.

Murder on the Zinderneuf

Free Fall Associates / Electronic Arts 1983
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 400/800

A murder mystery works very well in confined space, because it tickles the audience in a very special way – it appears 'solvable' as all the information seems to be at hand. Agatha Christie knew it when she wrote the quintessential Murder on the Orient Express and similar setups have appeared many times in the genre since then. One issue with the classic train setup is the 'confined space' aspect: A train can usually stop at any time, at the next station or outsiders can enter it. That is why Orient Express has it stuck in a snow storm in the middle of nowhere. No special events are necessary for aircrafts flying over one of the oceans in order for them to be inaccessible, making them probably even better suited for this setup. The Zinderneuf is a Zeppelin – extremely convenient due to its long travel time over the Atlantic! The airship is almost halfway on the way from London to New York when a murder occurs. The player, a detective, has got 15 suspects and 12 hours remaining until arrival.


Myst

clickBOOM / PXL Computers 1997
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The best selling game of all time… well, actually, I'm not sure this is true anymore, with the market having exploded since the mid-1990s. At least it used to be. One of the killer applications which didn't just sell itself, but also the CD-ROM drives necessary to run it. A game I held a huge grudge against for two decades. Because its huge commercial success killed the Adventure genre I loved. Now I replayed it again. Water under the bridge?
