Alien Poker

20/01/2010

It’s hard to find additional information on Alien Poker on the internet. The whole thing only tells me about a pinball game also called Alien Poker. Strange, because the game I’m playing looks a lot like poker with aliens, not pinball. Oh well. Alien Poker is a 1993 game by JD Software. It’s a decent five-card draw poker game. With aliens.

Alice in Wonderland

14/01/2010

Alice in Wonderland is a text adventure by Robin Johnson from 1989. I tried to find more info on this Robin Johnson, and failed. It’s not the actress, at least I assume as much. Strangely enough, there’s an IF author with the same name, but it’s not him either. Oh well. I can understand the author not wanting to get known too well. So, the game. You play Alice on her discovery in Wonderland. You know, as in the book. Except, instead of having strange conversations with cats, rabbits and hatters you just die a lot. Hooray for deaths in text adventures.

How can anyone think this picture is a good idea?
