ALF World of Words

12/09/2009

Oh Lord. Get me out of here. Oh God oh God oh God.

An educational game.

And sadly not an adult/educational game. (I’m so subtle with showing off what I like, am I not?)

Oh well. Have to do this I guess, there will be worse things along the way. Take a deep breath for…

ALF World of Words! Released in 1988 in an attempt to make an alien teach kids some English. Sure, makes perfect sense.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

ALF: The First Game

11/09/2009

ALF is a 1988 game about, well, ALF, the Alien Life Form TV series star. In this game, you have to guide ALF around the rather mazelike neighborhood, collecting various goodies and avoiding baddies. Pacman-with-a-license, basically.

Air Force Commander

Air Force Commander is a 1992 real-time strategy game by Impressions set in the Middle-East. It’s not a full-out war simulation though. As the title kind of gives away, you only control the Air Force.

Al-Qadim: The Genie’s Curse

04/09/2009

Guest review by E_net4. I suppose he also wanted a share of the fame and untold riches this blog gives to its writers and about which Crazy couldn’t keep his mouth shut. Now I’ll probably be flooded with guest reviews. But hey, enjoy. Just so you know, I also play all those guest reviewed games just for the experience. Gotta play ’em all!

A side note: I’m just another internet commoner, I assume. I have played many oldies in the past and I looked forward to hearing more from Let’s Play Oldies. I haven’t played this game in the old times, but it was rather enjoyable to give it a try. Anyways, here’s my Live Space: http://net4games.spaces.live.com

Al-Qadim: The Genie’s Curse is an action RPG developed by Cyberlore Studios and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc in 1994. It seems to be based on an Advanced Dungeons and Dragons campaign setting. Anyways, the story is focused on a young corsair in the world of Al-Qadim (think of the thousand and one nights kind of place).

The main menu is quite promising.
