Alien Breed 3D II: The Killing Grounds

01.png
Team 17 / Ocean 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
This one's a tough game to review. If you've already seen screenshots somewhere on the Internet, you'll probably be amazed by the huge quality jump from the first part up to this one. And graphics (and, of course, their effect on gameplay) were my main complaint there, weren't they? So everything should be fine this time around, shouldn't it? If only things were so easy.

Matt Wigdahl 2009
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

There's probably not much to do living on some asteroid in deep space. Grounded in Space's protagonist, a teenage boy, decided to spend his time building a rocket. Anxious to test it, he takes it outside and... it destroys his mother's garden! To finally learn some responsibility, learn about the hardship of life and learn to appreciate hard work, he is sent out to a mining belt in a spaceship - all on his own. The journey is supposed to be automated, so our hero has some time to read and familiarize himself with the basics of space mining. Things take a nasty turn soon enough, though, when he encounters pirates and a damsel in distress...

Sir-Tech 1984
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Once upon a time, the legendary world of Llylgamyn was ruled by an Overlord, appointed by the Council of Sages. When Trebor, the local hero, became the Overlord, he became obsessed with power. He found out about an artifact, a magical amulet of great power. He wasn't the only one looking for it: the evil wizard Werdna was only a step behind Trebor's efforts to find the artifact. Trebor found it first, however, only to have it stolen by Werdna almost immediately. Werdna didn't know how to handle the amulet properly, caused an earthquake beneath Trebor's castle, which creates several levels of mazes. To avoid looking like a complete idiot, Werdna announced that it was his intent to create the maze, so that he could move in at the lowest level. Trebor managed to clear out the first four levels of the maze, which he then pronounced to be his Proving Grounds for everybody interested to becoming a part of this private guard. You are one of these candidates...

Infocom 1981
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

So, how does a game end up with a '1' in its title anyway? Zork began its life as a much larger game on Mainframe computers. After it was decided to exploit its potential commercially, regular home computers became the limiting target. So Zork was split into three parts - this one being the first.
