24.04.2024 Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind small screenshot

Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind

Bubsy in: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind is a 2D platform game in which the player controls the lynx Bubsy, who must go through 16 levels, collect items and kill enemies. The time limit stands in his way, and there is also a game mode for two players on one computer. In the game, enemy aliens called "Woolies" intend to steal Earth's supply of yarn balls. Since Bubsy has the world's largest collection of yarn balls, he has the most at stake and sets out to stop the Woolies and reclaim the yarn balls. The game plays as a 2D side-scrolling platformer. The player must maneuver Bubsy through the levels, jumping on Woolies, and collecting stray yarn balls (which earns the player an extra life if 500 are collected). The game consists of sixteen levels, and Bubsy starts off with nine lives. In general, the game's gameplay has been compared to the Sonic the Hedgehog games from the Genesis era. Originally a console-only title by Accolade, it was later released for the Windows 95 operating system in an improved version called Super Bubsy. The original release of the game also included a comic series pilot starring Bubsy.

Flames of Freedom

Flames of Freedom (also known as Midwinter II: Flames of Freedom) is a first-person shooter role-playing video game with simulation elements developed by Maelstrom Games and published by MicroProse for MS-DOS, Amiga, and Atari ST in 1991. It is a sequel to the 1989 game Midwinter and its working title was Wildfire. Years after the events of Midwinter (1989), the Earth's climate stabilized, the island of Midwinter sank into the depths of the ocean, and in its place arose a set of smaller islands, called the Slave Isles, which are controlled by the slave-owning Saharan Empire. The Atlantic Federation of Peace and its agents travel to the chain of islands to free the local population from the slavers and prevent their expansion into their territories. This time, the player is transferred to the role of a secret agent of the Atlantic Federation, who on the islands wins allies from among the rebels, carries out assassinations and sabotages slave installations. Once again, he has a range of technologies and weapons at his disposal, controlling and piloting vehicles or light aircraft, including equipment stolen by the enemy. A series of missions and tasks are carried out across the vast world of all islands, and the strategic map makes it easier to navigate them.

24.04.2024 Dirt Track Racing small screenshot

Dirt Track Racing

Dirt Track Racing is the first part of the DTR series (including two more sequels) and it was one of the first "dirt" racing games. You could say a predecessor of FlatOut. Dirt Track Racing features 3 classes of cars (stock, pro stock, and late model, each can be enhanced with performance parts) and some figure-8 tracks instead of just ovals. The cars could also be improved in various ways with new parts. The tracks in Dirt Track Racing can be characterized in three words: oval, dirt, and small. They range in variety from regular ovals, to D-ovals, to the occasional figure eight. All said, the game has approximately 30 of these unimaginative racetracks scattered across a number of states throughout the US. And while the nature of dirt-track racing (this motorsport actually exists) calls for these sorts of uneventful tracks, translating them into a computer game makes them lose whatever real-life appeal they might have. The player can choose to either play one race or play in career mode where the player starts with next to nothing and work your way up gaining sponsors and more money as the player gets better. The player can also race with up to 10 people online.

24.04.2024 Kroz small screenshot


Kroz is a series of Roguelike video games created by Scott Miller for IBM PC compatibles. The first episode in the series, Kingdom of Kroz, was released in 1987 as Apogee Software's first game. Kroz introduced the scheme of the first episode being free and charging money for additional episodes, a technique which defined the business model for Apogee and was adopted by other MS-DOS shareware publishers. The Kroz game set is one of the first successful series of shareware games in history. The author is Scott Miller, his main inspiration was the game Rogue. The name is a play on words - it is created by reversing the sequence of letters from the name of the game Zork. These are action games with logic elements.

23.04.2024 Kingmaker small screenshot


Kingmaker (known as Kingmaker: The Quest for the Crown in Europe) is a turn-based strategy game published by Avalon Hill in 1993. It was developed by American studio TM Games based on the Kingmaker board game. Kingmaker simulates Wars of the Roses. Kingmaker reproduces the look and play of the board game almost exactly, allowing the player to compete with up to five computer controlled factions. The major change from the board game is the addition of a battle interface where the player can control his or her army in combat, but it is very simplistic and the option to resolve battles by the original method remains.  Choose to be either Lancaster or York in the famed "War of the Roses" in medieval England. The goal: have your faction secure a royal heir, get him (or her) crowned King (Queen Regent), and then keep him (her) alive whilst you exterminate all the other royal pretenders. Solid AI, original premise (you can "assign" lots of titles to your vassals, and abduct several heirs apparent), and excellent music despite simplistic battle interface.

23.04.2024 Arch Rivals small screenshot

Arch Rivals

Arch Rivals is a basketball video game released by Midway for arcades in 1989. Billed by Midway as "A Basket Brawl", the game features two-on-two full court basketball games in which players are encouraged to punch opposing players and steal the ball from them. Games generally follow standard basketball rules; a full game consists of four quarters, with four minutes each. Each team has two players, and the objective of the game is to outscore the opponent until the final buzzer sounds. A player can call for his teammate to pass him the ball or to shoot it in this battle royale. The difference between Arch Rivals and other basketball titles is the ability to freely punch an opposing player without penalty and steal the ball away. The referee will only call shot clock violations. Also unique to the game are various on-court hazards such as soda cans and candy wrappers thrown onto the floor. If a ballhandler steps on those, he falls onto the floor allowing his opponent to steal the ball from him. Players could also fall over the referee in the same way as the objects on the floor, as well as steal the ball with a maneuver called the "flying leap" where the player would jump forwards at the opposition ball carrier. If the maneuver missed, the player would roll along the floor. If successful, the player would tackle the opposition holding the ball. In the Arcade version the "flying leap" would pull the opposition's shorts down, revealing the opponent's underwear.

Paperboy 2

The game was much like the original: the player controls a paperboy (or papergirl) who must navigate a series of obstacles, such as tires rolling down a driveway while a car is being repaired, or strange houses like a haunted house, while trying to deliver the morning paper to various customers on a street (though unlike its predecessor, papers had to be delivered to houses on both sides of the street). Like the original, the game is renowned for its difficulty. There are four specific actions that can be taken somewhere in the middle of each stage that reward the player with a front-page photo on the newspaper afterwards. Such actions included breaking a window with a paper, where the next day's paper would read "Mysterious Vandalism Baffles Police", showing an angry policeman looking at broken windows. Others could be coming across a gas station being robbed and hitting the gunman with a paper behind his back, then having the next day's paper headlined with "Paperboy {Papergirl} Foils Armed Robbery" or seeing a runaway baby carriage and stopping it with a paper, and the forthcoming headline being "Girl {Boy} Saves Breakway Baby". Both heroic stories would show a happy policeman rewarding the paperboy with candy.

3D Galax

As the name implies, 3D Galax takes the Space Invaders/Galaxian concept into the third dimension. Seen from a first-person cockpit perspective and utilizing flat-shaded polygonal graphics, waves of aliens advance towards the player and must be destroyed with a laser cannon. Unlike in the originals, the aliens never shoot back: the only danger they pose is that of crashing into the player. If any aliens from a wave survive an attack run by not being destroyed before they pass the player, they will try again and again, until either the entire wave or the player is destroyed. The alien formations change every four waves, but not before a bonus stage involving navigating an asteroid field is passed.

The Mummy

The famous movie The Mummy also has its own game adaptation from 2000. It is a third-person action-adventure game. Set in Hamunaptra, there are 15 stages. There is also a bonus stage called "Cairo". Rick O'Connell is the main game-user, and the players have to defeat enemies such as Slave Mummies and Scarab Beetles. The task is simple, but not easy to accomplish. To stop the evil priest Imhotep who wants to take over the world with his dried mummies. Along the way, you have to collect various ancient objects and you have to watch out for Americans, Scarabs, mummies, as well as a lot of obstacles that sometimes plague you. As for weapons, you start with only revolvers and bayonets, but later on you get the famous shotgun or the shiny saber that cuts mummies in half a joy. The game is rendered in 3D graphics accompanied by music from the film. Unfortunately, this is really just a bad copy of Tomb raider benefiting from the license - imprecise controls, not very nice graphics, maybe only the music is good.
