Wow, almost a month without posting anything! Again, I apologise for the lack of posts and reviews. My professional life has a way of slowly taking over my personal life, which includes all my hobbies (but someone has to pay the bills!) But now I’m back and to make up for my absence, let’s review one of my favourite graphic adventures of all times, Loom.
So, the new MCU movie, Captain Marvel, is on cinemas right now and as far as I remember, Carol Danvers isn’t in any video game whatsoever, so I decided to just review a classic sci-fi game set in space. And why not Space Quest II?
Welcome one and welcome all to the 2nd anniversary of Retro Freak Reviews! It’s hard to believe that 2 years have already passed since I started rumbling about retro computer games. And to celebrate such a magnanimous occasion, let’s take a look at one of the best graphic adventures ever made (and a personal favourite): The Secret of Monkey Island.
Last June 28th, renowned sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison passed away at the age of 84. Ellison is considered one of the most prolific and influential sci-fi writers of the 20th century and today we’re going to take a look at the video game adaptation of one of his most famous short stories: I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream.
Like I said in my last review, today let’s steer clear from action titles and into one of my personal favourite graphic adventures. And since I failed to review a Star Wars-themed game this month’s 5th, let’s remedy that with another of George Lucas’ former intellectual properties. I’m talking about Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.
With the movie adaptation of Ghost in the Shell currently at the cinemas, I’ve decided to take a look at the cyberpunk genre and there are quite some games belonging to that genre. But perhaps my favourite one is Beneath a Steel Sky.
To end our Sierra retrospective, I decided to do something different: instead of reviewing another typical graphic adventure, I decided to review a mix of two of my favourite genres (graphic adventure and RPG). Which lead us to Quest for Glory (originally known as Hero’s Quest).
