Alone in the Dark

indark01.png
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.


Day of the Tentacle

Lucas Arts 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Look, behind you, a three-headed monkey! Wrong game, wood-lover. Anyway, you know, in spite of Monkey Island, it was Maniac Mansion which catapulted Lucasfilm Games to fame. Fast forward a few years. The company is now called Lucas Arts, and the lead designer of Maniac Mansion (as well as Monkey Island) has left. Time for the long-awaited sequel.


Discworld

Perfect 10 Productions / Psygnosis 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Talk about a high profile project - a Discworld computer game. Such cult favourites always run the risk of offending the very dedicated fan base, especially since presumably the computer games market overlaps very much with the group of those fans. First impression: They did very well. The graphics look very Josh-Kirby-ish and the CD version features professional actors as the voices of the characters - with Eric Idle in the lead as the wizard Rincewind.


Flashback

Delphine 1993
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

With a gun and no memory you end doing what anybody in your situation would do: living an action filled sci-fi adventure through alien worlds. Sounds typical, yet it is quite a different platform game.

Full Throttle

Lucas Arts 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

To get this off my chest right from the start: I'm neither a teenager, nor in any sort of midlife crisis. Not the best prerequisites to enjoy a game about middle-aged, burly (and apparantely a little simple) men whose life consists of driving around on comical, impractical vehicles. At the risk of being beaten to pulp to bald guys with beer bellies: bikers are not cool!


Gobliiins

Coktel Vision 1992
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Take the Adventure genre. Strip all story from it. Add different characters with different abilities. Limit the free movement of these characters to one screen at a time. What you get is Gobliiins.

Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (In Several Wrong Places)

Screen1.png
Sierra 1988
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking For Love! (in several wrong places). Need I say more?

Oh, OK then. In this sequel to the 1987 hit by Al Lowe, Larry Laffer, our balding bachelor, goes once again on a quest for love. In doing so, he will unwillingly cross the path of KGB agents and the evil Dr. Nonookee, who is plotting unspeakable schemes of doom on his secret base, concealed in a volcano on a tropical Island. Yes, another Bond parody for you!


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.
