Ambermoon

Thalion 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Ambermoon is an action RPG made in 1993 by Thalion. Back at the time, it was one of the first role playing games with 3D graphics moving freely in a 360° surrounding. These elements are mixed with a 2D overhead map view. Other games like the Eye of the Beholder trilogy also had a 3D engine, but only in 45° tracker style. What all these games had in common was the unique story. Challenging, motivating and very well told.

Electronic Arts 1984
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64, PC (CGA)

Have you ever heard about Napoleon? Yeah, the genial goblin-like garlic-eater. It's strange how along the time, the good games that had a look at this formidable person...simply failed to appear.

Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial

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?


Cold Iron

Andrew Plotkin 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

A simple farmer is looking for his axe to chop wood. In the process, he has to enter the nearby forest which, according to his superstition, must be haunted. His naive viewpoint is sometimes contrasted by those of a clergyman – or rather the farmer's interpretation of that guy's views. Until a shift in perspective occurs in the last few turns.

System: Mega Drive

When it was time to sell SEGA's new console they needed something spectacular to showcase it. You know how this thing goes, wrap it with something everybody loves, such as this arcade beat-them-up, and put it in a new shiny envelope to attract buyers.


Daughter of Serpents

Millenium 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6

System: PC

Egypt in 1920. A mysterious artifact found on the black market. Inside: a scroll containing a mysterious prophecy. The perfect prerequisites for the followup of the excellent Hound of Shadow? Yes. A worthy followup? No.


Der Stein der Weisen

Kingsoft 1984
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

A German text adventure, written by Ralph Stock who later became quite famous for games like Mad TV. Unfortunately, the bibliographic information within the game are not ambigous and even the oh-so-omniscient Internet does not offer a lot. Nevertheless, somebody has to start documenting such rarities, so let's just start with what we've got – amendments welcome!


Dune

Cryo 1992
Genre: Strategy, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the best known pieces of fictional literature - beaten only by the bible and a few others. Millions of people have read it and even those who didn't at least know the name because they've seen the movie, they've just heard of it somewhere or they've played one of the computer games.
