The mid-1990s were a great time for the Adventure genre. Quantity-wise. Though the more choice there is, the harder it is to choose, isn't it? So here is some support (~20 years late) with that. The Gene Machine – The Great British Adventure did not exactly make it to the top of everybody's lists of games which should be remembered, even though it is in fact a very typical game of its time. So even if it may not be the best, you could learn a lot about those years by having a look.

Hold on! Why is there an anti-air missile system parading in front of the Roman emperor? Welcome to a world where even slaves have their rights laid out in a union-negotiated contract, where our hero wears a toga, but also sneakers and where you can place prank phone calls to the Praetorian Guard. Welcome to the real (?) Imperium Romanum!

jeffro11's next move is Brix, a puzzle board game featuring... bricks. And don't tell me you knew it! Looks like this game is an extremely evolved version of Puzznic, because now you can move around bricks and not puzznics. Eh? No, wait, folks... there is actually a little bit more to it!

My apologies for a little delayed reaction. SB1988 comes back after a short break and shakes us with yet another flamboyant and extensive review on King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride. You definitely got the touch, dude! Incidentally, I happen to be one of those "haters" who don't really dig this new at the time cartoonish (or is it Dragon Lair-ish?) move with still dumber controls. I was never a big fan of icon system to begin with, but that sucker completely killed the experience for me. Now, it's for that very reason I never finished Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail!, it just seemed too dull and overinteractive. Still though, it is nice to know there are people who love Sierra regardless and can appreciate it from many different angles.

Why wasn't I ever into RPGs? I don't know. Why almost everyone else loves them? Beats me. Perhaps, it requires an RPG mindset. Anyway, SB1988 presents us with a 3rd look on Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos in a very detailed, classy and literary fashion. Mind you, it's exactly reviews like this that people like to steal from other sources, like wiki, etc. Only this time "hoofs" gave you out, so checking wasn't necessary ;)

Recently we took a look at the return of an adventure game legend, one of the few successful atempts at reliving that good old nostalgic moments. As you might remember overall we liked Thimbleweed Park, but there were a couple of things we could not quite stand about it, one of the main ones was the constant selfpraise. So, why not go back to the source of it and try to shed some light on the reasons why they padded themselves so much on their shoulders? Yes, today I am taking a look at The Secret Of Monkey Island

It surprises me that even on days like these when people are supposed to keep on partying and celebrating holidays we get more than one contributor within a short time period. This is slightly anomalous for our practice, which makes me think, there is probably more to this global warming sucker than I thought...

Anyway, whatever the season, we dearly welcome newcomers and their treats. guld here has brought us Crypto Cube, an obscure pre-AT educational game, which includes both review and a disk image. Thank you and welcome!
