The Mystery of Time and Space
by Jan Albartus
You find yourself locked in a bedroom, but don't know how you got here. You also don't remember who you are. You must find a way to get from one area to another through doors that are locked in various ways. Hopefully one day you will find your way out and learn just what happened to you.
This game requires the Macromedia Flash Player
In order to play The Road to El Dorado you need the Flash Player by Macromedia. It's a really cute mini game that is being offered as part of the promotion of the DreamWorks movie by the same name. But strangely enough the website does not promote a new children's game called Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado, which is also based on the movie. Believe it or not folks, this game, which adults are also enjoying according to some reviews, was developed by Revolution Software, the makers of our beloved Broken Sword games. Wouldn't it be nice if it could grow into a series equivalent to the 'Monkey Island' series?
In order to play Leo's Great Day and Leo's Great Day II you need the Flash Player by Macromedia. They are short and sweet games, but also quite clever.
In order to play the Tower of Hanoi Puzzle you need the Flash Player by Macromedia. Can be changed in difficulty by indicating how many layers you want. The object is to move all the layers from the left column to the right column stacked with largest on the bottom to smallest on the top (like it is on the left when you start .....simple, eh? Hah!). You cannot ever stack a larger block on a smaller block. This will give Adventure Gamers some practice for those appearing in adventure games like 'Legend of Kyrandia, Book 2: Hand of Fate'.

Beneath A Steel Sky
- CD Version (67 M)
- Floppy Version (7.3 M)
"After the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy setting of Revolutionís first game, 'Lure of the Temptress', Revolution decided to go down a completely different avenue with its second adventure game 'Beneath a Steel Sky', that of Science Fiction. A bleak vision of the future was imagined, where mind control and medical science combined forces to repress the populace. Leading comic artist, Dave Gibbons, joined the design team to visualize this desperate landscape. The result, released in 1994, was the cult classic 'Beneath a Steel Sky'.
Beneath a Steel Sky was produced for Amiga and PC but is no longer available for purchase.
In August 2003, 'Beneath a Steel Sky' was made available for free download and is now classed as freeware. The sources and resource files are available from SCUMMVM Using this new engine, 'Beneath a Steel Sky' can be played on XP, MacOS, Linux, Amiga and pocketPC. Revolution extends its thanks to the SCUMMVM team for all their hard work in bringing the game back to life. Enjoy!"
The Uncertainty Machine
by Ratracer Adventure Games
This is a traditional, 3rd person, point & click adventure, with a sci-fi plot. You play Susan Gant, a young and curious newspaper reporter living in a western city sometime in the near future. One day you accidentally stumble upon a conspiracy of monumental proportions: in a bid for power, several groups are plotting to use something that will totally change society as you know it. You must stop them, even if it costs you your own life!
A full length game, with approximately 90 different scenes to explore, 40 dialogues, and 80 inventory items. Highly rated by all those who have played it. We enjoyed it very much.
This game was developed using the Adventure Games Studio which is both free and easy to use.
Lure of the Temptress
by Revolution Software
"Lure of the Temptress was Revolutionís very first adventure game and work began on it in 1989, even before Revolutionís inception as an actual games development company. From the start their aim was to consider the contemporary adventures of the day and then bring something new to the genre. From this came the Virtual Theatre engine. VT allowed in-game characters to wander around the gameworld independently of each other, living their own lives and doing their own thing. Another feature allowed the player to give direct orders to helper characters (in this case a character named 'Ratpouch'), who would then go off to perform the task. These technology concepts were certainly unique, though Revolution was not sure how to develop them further in subsequent games. Nevertheless, the result was a quirky and entertaining adventure game that kicked off Revolutionís fondness for characterization and in-game humor."

King's Quest I VGA Remake
by Anonymous Game Developers Interactive
" King's Quest 1: Quest for the Crown, a revolutionary game designed by Roberta Williams and released in 1984, epitomizes the adventure gaming experience. It was the first of its kind, the game that started graphical adventure gaming on the PC. It allowed the player to interact in an entirely original 2.5D world, a groundbreaking concept that was so popular that it was followed by seven sequels and made Sierra famous. In the early 1990's, Sierra released a remake of the original King's Quest game with newer technology and graphics, but it was a total market failure, so it is highly unlikely that Sierra will ever try to update it again. Consequently, the people at Tierra Entertainment (Anonymous Game Developers) decided to take matters into their own hands and have remade it themselves, all for no pay or credit, only hoping to convince Sierra with the renewed interest in the game that it would be worthwhile for them to market the good old adventure games again."
During the first year nearly half a million copies of their remake was downloaded! This new version 4.0 (102 MB download) has speech and music built into the game (earlier versions had separate voice and music packs that you would also have to download and then you would have to add them to the game). Highly acclaimed by those who have played it. Click HERE to read our Review of the Sierra 1990 remake of the game.
King's Quest II VGA Remake
by Anonymous Game Developers Interactive
" King's Quest II was the sequel to the original King's Quest game designed by Roberta Williams. Many people felt that this was the game in the series most in need of an upgrade, thinking that the puzzles were illogical and the storyline was too sparse. In addition, the graphics in the original, which were impressive for its time, are now painfully outdated. Many modern computers can no longer run the original game with sound, and it is no longer available in stores.
Consequently the Anonymous developers at Tierra Entertainment now offer this King's Quest II+ VGA remake, with upgraded graphics and interface of the original King's Quest game, but also with added storyline, puzzles, art, music, atmosphere, depth, and culture." They have also just added a voicepack for this game to their website, but you must have the latest version (2.0) of their game to use it. The whole adventure gaming world is heralding this excellent remake. Click HERE to read our Review of Sierra's original 1985 game.
by Metropolis Software
When some gold starts mysteriously vanishing from Megabank and the RGB can't solve the case, they finally get desperate and call in a fortuneteller to ask for help. And she chooses you, Mark Hooper, a typical 16-year-old teenager, as the one who will be able to solve the mystery.
This is a 2D, 3rd person, point and click game with inventory and dialogue. First published in 1994 and sold as shareware, it was released to the public as freeware in 1999 because of outdated graphics. An entertaining and humorous game with many ingenious puzzles that is a lot of fun to play. Be forewarned that this is a DOS game and may require to be played in DOS Mode rather than under the DOS Prompt.
This download is available from Good Old Games. Be sure to check them out for many wonderful old vintage games made compatible with XP and Vista, some free and others for a very small price.

NOTE: Each of these games should be played in order. Do not read the Thod II description below until you have first played Thod I. Likewise do not read the description of Thod III without having first played Thod I and Thod II.
Thod I throws you into a faraway dimension unreachable by people of our world... except for Fudd, who witnesses his TV coming to life and turning into a portal right in front of his very eyes. Since Fudd is in his mid-teens, his TV is very special to him, so he dives in after it. In the new dimension, Fudd discovers that his TV was possessed by the deceased wizard 'Thod'. After destroying the TV, the spirit of Thod travels back to Fudd's dimension to possess something else..."
Thod II starts off where the first game finished. Fudd has defeated Larfor and returned back to his world, only to witness the two worlds suddenly merging for a split second. Fudd knows that this must be involved with the other world, and attempts to head back. To his amazement, upon re-entering the portal, an exact copy of himself is formed, and he begins to exist in both his world and the world of Jert.
He has no clue why, until Farlor explains to Fudd that there is a large glitch in the portals, and somebody must be controlling them. Farlor then says that this could only be Larfor, who turns out to have not been killed by Fudd in the first place. Fudd ventures out to seek and destroy Larfor, but ontop of this, Fudd must also destroy the portal link between his world and Jert. Farlor tells him of an adventuress who will help Fudd out, an adventuress who happens to be Fudd's never-met sister, but who is it?
The story of Thod II begins here. Who is his mystery sibling? Will he find and destroy Larfor?
Thod III Although Larfor was defeated, the events of Thod II led to disaster. The two worlds merged together, becoming once, and the hero, Fudd, drowned in the ocean of his home world.
And so Thod III begins. Fudd awakens in the spirit world, an afterlife reserved for wizards who accomplished great things in their lives. Fudd is greeted into this neo-heaven by the four great wizards of Jert, who explain to Fudd that the two merged worlds have been taken over by Ein No Yami, the guardian of the barrier that origionally seperated the two dimensions.
Helpless in the spirit world, Fudd decides he must still find a way to escape from death and return to the lviing worlds, and save his friends... and the entire population of the multiverse.

by Joe Townsend and Sephware (now Laminated Goat)

A long-missing co-patrolman is about to be discovered. His sideburns are about to grow another quarter-inch.
