3skulls01.png
Revistronic 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Arizona, 1866. Fenimore Fillmore, the young (actually, he looks like he's 12 years old) hero of our story, accidently stumbles across the secret of three golden skulls which unlock the way to the treasure of the Toltecs. One of these skulls is already in his possession. Two other ones have yet to be located, but at least he knows who has them.


Abuse

Crack dot com 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You are the last chance against the abuse, a virus that transforms people on horrible monsters, a creation of illegal experiments being made on the prison where you were yet another prisoner. Everybody is now infected, except you, and stopping the infection from spreading to the world won't be easy. I mean it, this is really hard, an action game that is not so much about blowing up enemies as it is about escaping and avoiding being blown up by the ants, your enemies who like flooding the places with their assaults and their shots.


Adventure

Mr Creosote 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

The first text adventure I wrote. Story has been ripped off a Mickey Mouse comic with just the character names removed.

Puzzles are virtually nonexistent, the 'parser' only understands commands which have been hardcoded into the game.

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.

It is the night of Helloween and a mad professor sporting a stereotypical Einstein haircut is experimenting with his latest invention: a worm hole generator.

Attila

L├╝der Osmers 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

This game is the English version of the video game Caesar. It is a digital representation of the Risk board game: the playing times are a bit long but the dynamics of the game are very clear and simple especially to those who already know Risk.


Ballern

System: PC

This is actually not a game, but only a 'programming excercise' I did for myself. It was intended to mimic the basics of a shooter, but all you can do is move around and shoot, because there are no enemies.


Batman Forever

Acclaim 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Gotham City. The decadent abode of violence, murderous crimes, mad supervillains and never-ending darkness and gloom. Ever occured to you that even the very name suggests a certain gothic connotation? Once again our DC hero in black cape and mask must save the day and this time his target is The Riddler along with his disfigured accomplice Two-Face, formerly a good friend of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, but now a sick nutjob with multiple personality disorder. Their henchmen are a good old bunch of cold-hearted goons, thugs and various trick-or-treaters gone loony. Well, Batman, that sounds like right up your alley!
