En del adventurespill med en liten beskrivelse
Jeg laget en liste over alle adventurespillene mine med noen små beskrivelser av dem for et annet forum, men det var så mye arbeid å skrive den ned at jeg poster den her også :) Den er på engelsk da, men jeg går ut fra at de fleste her forstår det hehe :) Håper også at noen andre kan gjøre det samme og lage en liste over sine adventurespill med små beskrivelser og anbefalinger da jeg leter etter nye bra adventurespill for tiden.. har fått et lite adventure kick :)
I made this list for another forum but I'm getting no replies there.. almost a dead forum. So I'll post it here too - here are my adventure games with brief descriptions. If you're looking for a new adventure game to play, read through this list and you'll probably at least find one or two awesome games you'd like List yours too, I'm looking for more adventure games to play.. gotten sort of an adventure kick lately.
Roberta Williams Anthology (3 copies) - This anthology contains Kings Quest 1-7, both Laura Bow games, all the Apple II adventure games Roberta Williams made and Mixed Up Mother Goose.
Kings Quest 8 - original big box This game was a HUGE letdown and one of the few Sierra adventure games (if you could call it that) I still haven't finished. It's more of an action game and it doesn't have the Kings Quest feel to it at all. I've read that Roberta was pushed into making it differently than she originally intended by some guys in suits.
The Black Cauldron - original box Adventure game for children based on the Disney cartoon of the same name. Roberta was involved with this (as was Al Lowe, the creator of the Larry games) but it was not included in the Roberta Williams Anthology for legal reasons.
Manhunter 1&2 - original boxes Old AGI Sierra adventure games.. really different that "normal" adventure games but still fun. I like the sci-fi settings.
Codename Iceman - original box A game in which you're an agent.. made by Jim Walls, the retired police officer behind the first three Police Quest games.
Freddy Pharkas - Sierra Classics box Very funny game by Al Lowe in which you control a pharmacist cowboy
Willy Beamish (floppy, CD and Sega CD versions) - original boxes Very cool game from Dynamix in which you control this little kid getting involved in all kinds of trouble! I have lots of good memories with this one.
Kings Quest 1-8 including rare AGI version of KQ4 - original boxes (some a little damaged and I don't have the original KQ7 box) Classic series from Roberta Williams. As everyone probably knows, KQ1 is claimed to be the first "3D animated adventure game".. 3D as in you can move in front and behind of objects. Kings Quest 4 is supposed to be one of the first games using a soundcard, and Kings Quest 5 is said to be one of the first VGA games with full speech released on CD rom. I have both the floppy and the CD rom version of KQ5 and I prefer the floppy version due to the crappy voice acting (by Sierra employees).
Space Quest 1-6 - original boxes My favourite Sierra series.. really funny series about this space age janitor named Roger Wilco. Very funny stuff!
Quest for Glory Anthology - Includes Quest for Glory 1-4. All really good games, but QFG 2 has a special place in my heart Very cool mix of role playing and adventure.
Quest for Glory V - original big box with soundtrack CD Pretty good game but nowhere near as good as the previous games in the series (in my opinion).
Conquests of Camelot - original box Very cool game set in medieval times with Lancelot and the gang.. I don't remember much from this game at all though as I only finished it once MANY years ago.
Conquests of the Longbow - original box The "sequel" to Conquest of Camelot.. it's not related in any way though other than the fact that it's about a legend.. this time it's Robin Hood. The best Robin Hood game I've ever played, wonderful game.
Leisure Suit Larry Ultimate Pleasure Pack - original box Contains Larry 1-7 (still no sign of Larry 4 hehe), Larrys Casino and Laffer Utilities. Very cool series, really funny and sometimes I can relate to the main character hehe. I think Larry 7 was a really good end to this series and I wish that garbage by the name of Magma Cum Laude had never been released.. it's a cheap cash-in and it really sucks.
Gabriel Knight Mysteries - original box Contains Gabriel Knight 1&2 and one of the Gabriel Knight novels. Also contains the comic book that was originally included with Gabriel Knight 1 (which was missing from the Sierra Classics re-release) in PDF form (or some scanned form at least).
Gabriel Knight 3 - original box The last in the Gabriel Knight series. Good game but I don't like the 3D graphics.. takes away much of the athmosphere found in the previous two games.
Phantasmagoria - original big box This game got terrible reviews. It's really easy, has a lot of bad acting, the video quality isn't really good at all and some more stuff like that, but for some reason I've always really liked this game.
Phantasmagoria 2 - original box The sequel to Phantasmagoria.. or not really. It was only named Phantasmagoria 2 in order to cash in on the fame Phantasmagoria. It is a FMV horror game but that's the only likeness it has to Phantasmagoria. The end sucks (in my opinion) and many people hate it, but I actually kind of liked it.
Torins Passage - Sierra Classics release Another game by Al Lowe, this time for children (he started out writing software for children so this shouldn't be a big surprise). I actually didn't like this game much at all, didn't push the right buttons with me.
Gold Rush - original box with the included book Funny little game set in the gold rush days. It's pretty short as there are different routes you can take through the game and so each of them are pretty short. Not really an excellent game or anything, but I kind of enjoyed it.
