Georg Rottensteiner / The User / Spider Jerusalem 2015
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

Just one more package to deliver before going home. Thankfully, the receptionist takes it. Phew, just down the elevator again… woah, what was that? An explosion? Everything goes black. Some time later, you wake up again, in the middle of some signs of destruction. Nobody's there anymore. What has happened and how to get out of there?

Prior Art 2015
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

On a normal workday, research chemist Caren discovers a headless human body in one of the biologists' tanks. Who does it belong to? What has happened? And why does anybody make a new Adventure game on the C64 in 2015? At least the last question is easy to answer: because they can!


Die Akte Paul Bennet

Michael Baltes 2015
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Not many people are still writing classic Text Adventures. Now imagine how few people are still writing classic Text Adventures in German. Those few who do form a small community which even meets in person occasionally, which is always very nice. People support each other during development, with advice, testing etc. What's not so nice is that the group of authors is virtually identical with the group of players. So the risk is always that your whole target audience already played your game during the beta phase! Michael Baltes is probably the most prolific author of German Text Adventures in recent years. His output is by far the most frequent. Due to the aforementioned circumstances, I will never be able to give most of his games a proper review, however. Die Akte Paul Bennet is one of the few games I have not tested in advance and which I therefore only know from pure player perspective. So let's use the rare opportunity!


The Incident

KHAN Games 2015
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

The Incident is a 2015, sci-fi themed, sliding-puzzle game by independent NES developer KHAN Games. This game can be considered "homebrew" being self-published by the developer and distributed directly to customers on new cartridges compatible with original Nintendo hardware (NTSC at least; not sure about PAL) as well as certain NES clone systems. The player assumes the identity of a box-pushing robot that is reactivated 400 years after the unspecified "incident" and resumes its original purpose of moving boxes. This provides the premises for the Sokoban style game play and for the storyline which unfolds as the player completes puzzles.


The Masterplan

Shark Punch 2015
Genre: Strategy, Puzzle, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The early 1970s, the setting of the great heist films – a theme transformed into games only rarely so far. The Masterplan picks up the crumbs left behind by the few classics in this tiny, tiny genre and mixes it with some thematic cues from more recent industry developments.
