Simon the Sorcerer 3D

Simon the Sorcerer 3D
1.5

As with Escape from Monkey Island, Prince of Persia 3D, Earthworm Jim 3D or Quest for Glory V, Simon the Sorcerer 3D follows a long and twisted logic of changing hand-drawn, beautiful 2D games into ugly, crude and poorly animated 3D remakes that played like crap and made you barf. It was at that strange […]

Simon the Sorcerer II

Simon the Sorcerer II
4.5

Of lions, wizards and wardrobes. Sordid, vanquished at the end of Simon the Sorcerer I, returns from the dead and plots to gain his revenge on our hero. To that end he causes a wardrobe to materialize in Simon’s bedroom which promptly whisks the reluctant adventurer back to the land of wizards, goblins and swamplings. […]

Simon the Sorcerer

Simon the Sorcerer
5

Simon the Sorcerer stands out for several reasons. For one thing, it’s a great point and click game that wasn’t made by Sierra or LucasArts, despite having the humor of Monkey Island and an engaging fantasy setting that will remind one of Kyrandia or King’s Quest. And being made by a British company (Adventuresoft), it’s […]

Space Bunnies Must Die

Space Bunnies Must Die
2.5

Space Bunnies is a bad B-game with poor controls, mediocre gameplay and weak graphics. It appears that the majority of money spent on the game was directed at the soundtrack, art direction and advertising because Space Bunnies Must Die! is all concept, no execution. It’s a painful experience to make your way through the early […]

Blair Witch: Volume I – Rustin Parr

Blair Witch: Volume I – Rustin Parr
3

The game takes place in Burkittsville—a small town with a long history of unexplained events and mysterious tragedies.

Zanzarah: The Hidden Portal

Zanzarah: The Hidden Portal
4

A bit like Pokem, but with fairies. Zanzarah isn’t a name that rolls off the tongue, so you’d expect a decent game to infuse a pleasant experience with such a wordy title. It’s half there, providing an unusual and strangely alluring fantasy world with the usual ‘save the world’ motif. You play as Amy, who […]

ODT: Escape Or Die Trying

ODT: Escape Or Die Trying
3

Unlike many action games, O.D.T. has a story line that, if properly developed and integrated into gameplay, could add much to the overall experience. Set in a fictional world ravaged by a deadly plague, O.D.T. casts you as one of four crew members aboard a prop-driven dirigible that’s crashed in uncharted territory while on a […]

Time Warrior: The Armageddon Device

Time Warrior: The Armageddon Device
2

In the future, where everybody wears space age turtlenecks, an ancient terror is unleashed by a group of archaeologists (no, not on Mars, that’s a different game entirely). This twisty, rust-colored juggernaut floats around in space and, basically, blows everything up. Only one man can save the universe: The Time Warrior! You’re sent into the […]

Project Nomads

Project Nomads
3

Project Nomads is avery odd mish mash of several genres. The story is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi trip through a fractured world inhabited by a nomadic populace. You are given three characters to choose from, with names that are surprisingly bland considering the sci-fi fantasy motif of Nomad’s universe. John is the adept engineer of the […]

Chicken Run

Chicken Run
3

Metal Gear Solid with chickens. Considering the subject matter of the movie Chicken Run, it makes sense that the game is is a semi-remake of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid, but with chickens. Here’s the idea – you take the role of one of the stars of the movie, such as Ginger, Rocky, or Fletcher, and […]
