Adam Cadre 2000
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

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...


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.


Bricks 2000

Inner-Smile.com 2000
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

I had to notice that The Good Old Days do not feature a single Tetris-game. So I went and asked Mr Creosote if there was any reason for it, suspecting he might have some sort of hidden hatred for that game or something like that. But well no, no real reason - just doesn't seem to be his genre. It's mine though. Those very very few of you who remember my own old site The Keep might also remember I had a good number of Tetris-clones up there. So I thought which of those might be the best to be THE Tetris-game up here. I'm not saying there won't be any of the other ones around here anytime, but one has to be the first.


Code name: Hell Squad

Digital Dreams 2000
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Weird, inconsistent capitalization in the title and an introductory clip straight from World's Most Amateurish Home Videos (some Eastern European guys in ill-fitting suits posting as "FBI") – this does not set hopes high. The plot about some alien kid wreaking havoc in some backwoods part of the earth and a commando unit being sent to dispatch him – acceptable. The design goal was apparently to make a sort of Arnold Schwarzenegger 1980s action film in Adventure format. Why not, sounds fairly novel.


Deluxe Ski Jumping

Mediamond 2000
Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This is a neat little, yet highly addictive game, when you're into such kind of winter sports. In 'DSJ' you're a ski jumper trying to win the World Cup and beating all hill records.

Gemline

Jobline 2000
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Okay... first off, this game is in swedish... or norwegian - you can switch between these languages... and it's completely irrelevant. This game is a Coloris/Columns clone - and a very good one! Concept is simple - get 3 gems in a row, vertical, horizontal, diagonal - and they vanish. The original was usually referred to as a "Tetrislike game" although that kind of reduces the concept to less than it is. Coloris (or Columns ...or gemline) requires a different set of tactics and strategy. You cannot make long term plans as you can (try to) do in Tetris, you have to build and let vanish fast - you CAN prepare a larger collapse, but the game doesn't let you this room, you'll run out of space faster than in Tetris. Some might argue it's not as challenging as Tetris - maybe it's not, but it requires a different kind of thinking, not necessarily easier or harder...

Well met traveller! Come closer to the fire and warm your frozen bones a little before you continue the journey through those icy planes. While we are waiting for the clouds to clear up, let me tell you a story about a golden age… a golden age of role playing.


Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim

Cyberlore 2000
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One day, in the middle of 2000, I bought several magazines with demo cds on a computer fair. On one of those cds, I found the demo for "Majesty: the fantasy kingdom sim" and, mildly interested, decided to give it a try. The second I started playing the demo I was hooked, and the game hasn't left my harddrive since.


Nevermore

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware

To this day Edgar Allen Poe's most widely recognized work, the poem The Raven doesn't exactly allow for easy adaption into other media. Which didn't stop various attempts, most notably the 1935 movie starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, which is a creepy piece of work on its own right, but bears little resemblance to Poe's poem other than the title and the 1963 film starring Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and (again!) Boris Karloff, which is just a painfully unfunny comedy which, again, throws Poe overboard within the first five minutes.
