Dark Disciples II

Dark Disciples II

[youtube id=”MqLmrdN7os0″ width=”633″ height=”356″] Dark Disciples II Freeware CRPGs are less common that -say- freeware adventure and platform games, mostly due to the fact that they need to be bloody big to be any ...
phenomenon 32

Phenomenon 32

[youtube id=”V2cueICJHek” width=”633″ height=”356″] Phenomenon 32 is an incredibly immersive experience, designed to be savored slowly and carefully. It is after all a hard and demanding game, that simply cannot be ...
warhammer 40k - fire warrior - pc

Warhammer 40k: Fire Warrior

[youtube id=”LfJ7HDJ6LWs” width=”633″ height=”356″] The problems with Fire Warrior, you see, are firmly rooted in its dirty console past. The game sports an incredibly annoying auto-save/checkpoints feature that forces ...
Red Baron

Red Baron

Red Baron What you’re about to read, is an excellent guest post by Bill, who is a blogger for think SMART, that came up with some rather intriguing educational DS games and even a little something for the Wii. Bill lives in Hell’s Kitchen, ...
snakes of avalon

Snakes of Avalon

Let’s start with the easy bits. Snakes of Avalon is a freeware adventure game that comes with a traditional point-and-click interface and is the creation of Igor Hardy and Alex van der Wijst, who apparently employed the musical talents of Thomas ...
Hector Badge of Carnage

Hector: Badge of Carnage: Episode 1

I’m not a particularly cynical gnome. No, not really. I’m just a realist who -admittedly- spends the odd day firmly believing that cynicism and the subsequent nihilism are nasty things, while trying to figure out ways to make this poor planet ...
little computer people

Little Computer People

It might have inspired The Sims and that happily forgotten Tamagotchi craze, but David Crane’s Little Computer People was far from a commercial success back in 1985. Surely the atrocious cover art couldn’t have helped much…The ...
The Dig

The Dig

The Dig The Dig was released -after many a delay- in 1995 by Lucasarts and, despite failing to be a spectacular critical and commercial hit, should be considered one of the company’s most impressive offerings. Actually, I’d easily ...
Dead Hotel

Dead Hotel

As I am semi-randomly and very slowly going through the Interactive Competition entries, I couldn’t help but notice that Dead Hotel is the only game that has been specifically programmed to run as a proper executable for Windows using its ...
Delve Deeper

Delve Deeper: Treasures and Tunnels

Delve Deeper is an excellent game. It’s smart, unique, easy on the retro-loving eye and, now that the Treasures and Tunnels DLC has been released, pretty huge too. Fresh off the indie forges of Lunar Giant and costing less than one (rapidly ...
Dead Meets Lead

Dead Meets Lead

One of the reasons I don’t usually review games I haven’t particularly enjoyed is that I often can’t be bothered to properly play them, let alone take the time to actually write the review. Apparently then, Dead Meets Lead is quite ...
Dungeons & Dragons - Daggerdale

Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale

When I originally previewed Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale I was pretty excited about it, what with it being the first DnD 4th edition CRPG to hit PCs and consoles; an interesting choice supported by its advertised modular system and episodic, ...
Cthulhu Saves the World

Cthulhu Saves the World

I was never particularly fond of JRPGs you know; never even cared for Link’s 16-bit adventures on the SNES. Cthulhu, on the other hand, now that is another matter entirely. The lovable Great Old One has always been among my, let’s say, ...
thunder fleets

Thunder Fleets

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear… Not the most encouraging way to start a review, I know, but I simply didn’t want to sound overtly optimistic really. Wouldn’t want anyone to get instantly excited about Thunder Fleets and recklessly stampede ...
the dream machine

The Dream Machine

Plato, Jung, Freud, a young ordinary couple and some exquisite visuals are the true stars of The Dream Machine; an episodic, indie point-and-click adventure game I have already enthusiastically previewed and now finally get to properly review. Well, ...
Syberia-Collection

The Syberia Collection

The Syberia Collection With the advent and admitted affordability of downloadable games one can easily forget just how lovely a properly packaged offering can actually feel. Yes, even by today’s meager standards, the physicality of a box, a modest ...
