Bugged

bugged01.png
Anssi Räisänen 2001
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

It's every player's nightmare: An aspiring IF author (to make matters worse, one who is related to you) asks you to beta test his game. This can be fun, but if the game is really, really bad and if you can't really tell that to the person in question, things get ugly. Bugged is about you playing your cousin's first attempt at writing a game, and not only is it a completely linear set of boring rooms, located in a castle of a bog-standard fantasy kingdom, but pretty much everything imaginable went wrong technically - the game is bugged to the extreme. Most of the puzzle solutions don't work as expected and imagined by the author. So you have to find ways around those bugs. I.e. you exploit other bugs in order to progress.


Ted Paladin and the Case of the Abandoned House

Anssi Räisänen 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

The question whether an old house should be demolished should be answered by an expert. Not anybody from the board for monument conservation, though, but Ted Paladin, private investigator. Why him? Because of his 'text adventure skills', as the introduction tells us. What kind of game awaits the player should now be obvious: Meta humour embedded into old-school exploration and puzzles. So this will not exactly be a candidate to win the IF Comp, but it might very well place high on my personal list.


The Hollywood Murders

Michael Zerbo 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

A game for Chandler fans: a private detective hired by a seductive 'dame' to find her husband who disappeared a few years ago. Of course, it's not as simple as this, and as you dig deeper into the shiny world of Hollywood, its studios and the people behind them, it all culminates in a number of grisly murders.
