Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Pool Of Radiance

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Pool Of Radiance

Standard role playing game for the NES system. You take your chances rolling a digital die, kill stuff, get rich, and have adventures.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Hillsfar

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Hillsfar

I think I can safely say that Hillsfar is the Worst Role-Playing Game Ever Made. Actually I changed my mind, it's only safe to say that if you accept that this is an RPG in the first place, which it really isn't, despite the AD&D title.

There is absolutely no role playing involved. Your primary goal seems to consist of breaking into people's houses and stealing all their money without getting caught by the guards. Even when you are doing your job, following the missions given by your guild or whatever, you are always an outlaw. Your alignment doesn't matter. Your class doesn't matter. Clerics can't heal themselves, Magic-Users can't use magic, and Thieves are the only class that have any trouble stealing things, because everyone else can just break the lock, while a thief is supposed to use lock picks, which is nearly impossible and results in a bag full of broken tools rather than getting away with the loot.

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. My poor little laptop died. Hardware failure. Platters scratched. We tried to put her in the freezer for possible ressurection but sadly nothing helped:(

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Heroes of the Lance

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; Heroes of the Lance

Based on the later parts of the Dragon Lance book Dragons of Autumn Twilight, the heroes are descending into a ruined city in search of the disks of Mishakal. The gameplay consists of horizontal fighting with a maze like map using doors to change the view. The convoy consists of the eight Heroes of the Lance, you have to use one at a time but, you can change characters whenever you want. Each character has different types of attacks and spells making them more suited to fighting different enemies as well as acting as lives.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

As you walk down Elm Street, look for open buildings. You have to go in, collect all the items there, and then fight the boss to get out. Freddy will also come occasionally and try to get you, just fight him off as best you can. There several items which are important to collect. First, obviously, the bones, which will be scattered throughthe various buildings. Next are cups of coffee which refill your sleep meter, and a radio which will wake you up from the dream realm. Finally, the Dream Warrior tokens which give you special powers in the dream world to help you defeat Freddy. The runner icon gives you a javelin attack and a somersault jump. The yin-yang gives you a throwing star and jump kick. The wizard hat gives you a magical attack and hovering ability.

Nightamre on Elm street is actually a pretty interesting game. The graphics aren't great but the gameplay is decent. The Dream Warriors add some variety, since you need to collect them all to get past certain areas, and you get to choose which one is most effective for any given situation.

After hundreds of years of chaos, mankind has finally emerged from the ruins of nuclear war. This world of the distant future has once again flourished under the guidance of the Great King, who harnessed the power of the 8 Eyes to rebuild the planet.

These strange jewels of power were formed at the eyes, or centers, of the eight nuclear explosions which nearly destroyed the Earth. In the wrong hands, the 8 Eyes could cause untold destruction... and now, they have been seized by the Great King's eight Dukes, in a desperate bid to gain control of the world for themselves. They have banished the King to the nuclear wastelands, and already their squabbling threatens to plunge the world into war once again!

The task of retrieving the 8 Eyes falls to you, Orin the Falconer, the bravest and mightiest of the King's Guardsmen. With your fighting falcon, Cutrus, you must penetrate each of the eight Duke's castles. There you will face the Duke's soldiers, and battle strange nuclear mutants such as living skeletons, giant wasps, and mud men. You must defeat the monstrous Boss of each castle to retrieve the Jewel of Power he guards.

Then, to complete your quest, return the 8 Eyes to the Altar of Peace to await the return of the Great King, so that he may finish the rebuilding of Earth. Your reward will be the eternal gratitude of all mankind!

In the game, the player assumes the role of WorldRunner (known in Japan as Jack), a wild "space cowboy" on a mission to save various planets overrun by serpent-like beasts.[1] For its time, the game was technically advanced; the game's three dimensional scrolling effect is very similar to the Mode 7 graphics seen years later in popular Super NES titles such as Super Mario Kart.

ABADOX is a shooter that see you as the last remaining captain of the fleet, your goal is to fly into a monster and destroy it from the inside. Hindering your task are captured spaceships, parasitic worms, and even cells from the monster's immune system. The boss you encounter in the first level is a semi-digested dog, which conveys a certain amount of revulsion not easily achievable on the system

720 Degrees, or 720°, is a 1986 arcade game by Atari Games. 720°, a skateboarding game, is notable in that it is the first extreme sports video game, and has a unique timed structure that requires the player score points in order to keep the game going. The game's name comes from the "ultimate" trick, turning a full 720° (two complete circles) in the air after jumping off a ramp. 720° has the player controlling a skateboarder ripping around a middle-class neighborhood. By doing jumps and tricks, the player can eventually acquire enough points to compete at a skate park.

10 Yard Fight

10-Yard Fight is a 1983 American football arcade game, developed by Irem and published by Nintendo (NES) and Irem (Arcade).

The player does not select plays for either offense or defense. On offense, simply receive the ball upon the snap and either attempt to run with the quarterback, toss the ball to one of two running backs, or throw the ball to the one long distance receiver. On defense, the player chooses one of two players to control, and the computer manipulates the others. The ball can also be punted or a field goal can be attempted.

1943 The Battle Of Midway

1943 The Battle Of Midway was the sequel to the classic game 1942.
posted by Jeremiah Palecek @ 5:14 PM  

The daring Super Ace must fight through 32 stages of dogfights to reach Tokyo and destroy all of Japans aircraft.

1942 is very simple and very addictive. The classic arcade gameplay that made 1942 a hit in arcades is all here.
