Alone in the Dark 2 (Mac)

Alone in the Dark 2 review (MAC)

Reviewed on February 06, 2004

Alone in the dark, Alone in the twilight, Alone in the floodlights... Stuff the lighting, it's all the same to me so long as I'm not alone with this game.

Alone in the Dark (Mac)

Alone in the Dark review (MAC)

Reviewed on February 06, 2004

I'm in a mansion surrounded by killer statues, twangy polygonal dogs and inscrutable instant-kill figures who sit in armchairs. There's a note stuck behind the piano if I'd only remember to look there, but that's no great comfort when even the paintings can kill me, everything in sight is cursed or boobytrapped, and the gaping maw of hell is in fact down in the basement.

Trojan (Arcade)

Trojan review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Trojan is a side-scrolling hack-em-up game from Capcom which I played in the flesh just ONCE in a milk bar during pre-teenhood, circa 1986. I have incredibly vivid memories of that lone encounter, and the tale of my first reunion with the game via emulation some dozen years later is right up there with all of those sweeping sagas of reunited long-lost wartorn twins!

Zorro (Apple II)

Zorro review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Thinking of Zorro for the Apple II tends to make me think of The Goonies for the Apple II. Then my third thought in the chain is usually, 'I'd rather be playing Bruce Lee.' Rick Mirsky programmed all three of these platformers in a similar style, and where Bruce Lee is tight, timeless and fun - a classic - The Goonies and Zorro are more similar to each other, sharing weird floaty game physics, episodes of unnecessary cruelty and high annoyance factors. Zorro looks and feels ...

In the early nineteen-eighties, there were a hell of a lot of games around with 'Star' in their title.

Kung Fu Master (Apple II)

Kung Fu Master review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Kung Fu Master reminds me of the glory days in the 1980s when my favourite personal computer, the Apple II, co-ruled the roost with the Commodore 64 in terms of snapping up ports of popular arcade titles. As the 1990s approached, the eight-bit Apple II would begin to struggle badly to deal with the ports of the more technically demanding games being thrown at it, and bizarrely, nearly all of these titles came from Data East. From Ikari Warriors to Robocop... On the Apple, none of these ar...

Eamon (Apple II)

Eamon review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

"EAMON is a computerized version of what are called 'Fantasy Role-Playing Games.' When you enter the universe of one of these games, you are no longer John (or Jane) Smith, mild-mannered computer hobbyist. Instead, you become a character in a land of adventure, doing almost anything you want to."

Chivalry (Apple II)

Chivalry review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

KNAVE! Didst thou believe that Mario and his ilk brought party games and 'minigames' to the gaming world? Thine own eyes and ears deceive thee yet again. Ye should know that the first true party game - that is, a die-rolling boardgame concept for multiple players, crammed with arcade mini-games - was Chivalry for the Apple II, released in 1983 by Optimum Resource. If thou canst find a TRUE example of an arcade-board-party game hailing from an even earlier time, I'll eat yon squire's hat! ...

Canyon Climber review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Canyon Climber is the second-worst game ever made for the Apple II. The worst would have to be U.F.O., but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Beer Run (Apple II)

Beer Run review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Sirius Software's 1982 advertising material called platformer Beer Run 'a light-headed game of suspense.' Certainly the beer puns could flow thick and fast and in a sort of yeasty fashion where this game is concerned. But except for the twin schticks of cuteness and having a really cool title, Beer Run is one of Sirius Software's most minor efforts for the Apple II, and the surprise is that it's so slight that it just doesn't prompt any alcohol-related humour at all.

Adventure after adventure finds the Blue Bomber forced to struggle through a thematic assemblage of booby traps and scatterbrained minions before battling the stage's final Robot Master face-to-face. Questions run through my mind when I ponder this fact, such as:

''Okay men, it doesn't look good... Our spy got killed trying to steal an enemy uniform. Our truck was blown up with our driver in it. The marine and me are left stranded in this building, and the sapper and the sniper are left hiding in the ruins, with an enemy patrol heading straight for them. There's only one thing for it....''

Connections review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

There are some words that, while individually appear harmless, placed together make a terrifying combination. It's like putting ingredients for a bomb together, or something. One of those words is 'Educational'. Sure, it may bring up memories of days at school where the teacher who you know hated you more than everyone else made you read your 'F' grade homework to the class, after which the school bully hung you up by the underpants, but as a word it's not all that offensive. Another word is 'ga...

Dungeon Keeper (PC)

Dungeon Keeper review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Most games cast you as a simpering, whiter-than-white hero, who (most RPG games excepting) has virtually no character flaws and is always tall and handsome, or thin and pretty. The sort of people who in real life everyone would just hate ! And so it is with great pleasure that I tell you that Dungeon Keeper by Bullfrog encourages you to bring merry hell upon these people, and then some. At last, justice is served.... on a platter!
