Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware

You wake up from the phone ringing. A voice tells you you were supposed to start your presentation at the office at 9. Your gold watch tells you it's already 9:05. Apparantely having slept in your soiled clothes, you ponder your next move...


Alias 'The Magpie'

J. J. Guest 2018
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Good humour takes proper setup and precise timing: Leading up to and delivering a punchline is an art form of its own which is harder to master than most people tend to believe. Yet it is one of the most important skills that separates the amateur jokester from the true comedian. Of course this is also what makes or brakes any video game that tries to make its audience laugh and it is especially the adventure game genre that has a tradition of delivering prime examples to both the best and the worst in comedy. One of the former is Alias 'The Magpie', a piece of interactive fiction telling the story of a hilarious art heist in a masterful way.

This inheritence came as a surprise: Even your husband Michael had never heard of these distant relatives of his before. Now, the last of the family Verlac has died and Michael is the only remaining heir of the nice estate in the small New England town of Anchorhead. Since this goes along well with his teaching job, you two decide to move there.


Andromeda Apocalypse

Marco Innocenti 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Andromeda Apocalypse is a sequel to Andromeda Awakening, a game which, ironically, should really have had this one's title, because… you know… it was about the apocalyptic destruction of a whole world. The actual Apocalypse, on the other hand, is a rather slow-paced exploration game set in an abandoned space station (strictly speaking, it's a space ship, but of huge proportions). Strange naming aside, although there is a strong continuity between the games, it is not absolutely necessary to have played the predecessor.


Andromeda Awakening

Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

One of the planet's three suns is threatening all life as we know it. You are one of the few people who knows about it. On the way to the institute where you're supposed to try and save the world, disaster strikes already: Earthquakes destroy much of the subway system, killing all your fellow passengers. But these quakes also carve the way into a long-forgotten underworld full of machines and artifacts dating back to the early days of colonisation – and even before that.

Beet the Devil

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Demons have laid waste on your garden, probably killed your neighbour and, worst of all, kidnapped your dog! What else is there left to do, but to go down to hell (armed with various vegetables and accompanied by a helpful puppy) and to retrieve it?


Being Andrew Plotkin

J. Robinson Wheeler 2000
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Having received basically every honour and award there is in the modern day IF world, Being Andrew Plotkin is an adaption (or rather a 'reimagination') of the movie Being John Malkovich – with the person who probably comes closest to being something of a 'star' in the IF scene taking over Malkovich's role: Andrew Plotkin, author of many modern classics.


Blind

Andrew Metzger 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

A woman is abducted right off the street by a man. When she wakes up, she finds herself chained to a bed... obviously, the goal is to escape. The catch: She is blind and, being in an unknown surrounding and still affected by the shock of the attack, disoriented. "Who says blindness is a handicap?", asks the game. This seems like a bit of an unreasonable implication – it is a handicap and this game will not convince anyone otherwise. A better tag line would have been "Who says being blind makes you easy prey?" or "Who says blindness makes you defenseless?", because that is what the game turns out to be actually about: fighting back.


Bliss

Cameron Wilkin 1999
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

"Ignorance is bliss", people say. Know those clichéd fantasy settings in which a knight in shining armour slashes his way through hordes of 'monsters', although the whole time, you have this nagging question in the back of your head how this guy is exactly 'good' and how his victims are 'evil'? Then Bliss might be for you. On the surface, the game is exactly what we all despise: Your alter ego, the hero, has been captured by the Orcish army of an evil magician. Now, he has to escape from the dungeon and finally kill the evil guy's dragon. The whole journey being a violent killing spree. However, the evil wizard has apparantely put a curse on your head as sometimes, reality just seems to fade away...
