Codename: Iceman

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Codename: Iceman is a Sierra game published in 1989. It’s, unlike the Police Quest and Space Quest series for example, a standalone game, following the story of Naval Officer Johnny Westland. Something you could notice about the game is the fact it has got an upgrade if you look at the animations. Just like several other titles that have been published around the same time, Sierra games took a boost in their animations and overall visual aspect of the games.

Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

One of the first Sierra games I've played, and despite its flaws, I enjoyed it greatly. Bear in mind, that at moment of writing, the game is 27 years old, so it's hard to say whether the game withstood the test of time without losing my personal view on the game.


Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards

Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The moment you start up this game, you know you're in for a treat. The cheesy music, accompanied with two-and-a-half colours active on screen and an intro featuring a dork in a white tuxedo, chasing what appears to be, a blow-up doll. Yes, welcome in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.


Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel

The shortest running of the common Sierra Adventures. Does that say anything about its quality? Come on, we're talking about Sierra! As if these sillyheads had ever cared about consumer wishes or producing quality products!


Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon

Rating: 6/6

In retrospective, some years seem to make complete sense. For example, 1989 was a year in which the moons were properly aligned and the world seemed a better place (at least for me). It was the year we were treated with great movies like "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and "Back to the Future Part II". Our hips moved with the rhythm of the music from Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" from Tears For Fears. Yes, 1989 definitely was a good year to be alive. It was also the year Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon came out.
