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.

Guest review by Crazy from the comic No Happy Endings. He actually made that blog just now so I could link to it but check it out as it’s good. Thanks for helping me out with the review while I’m preparing for a fluid dynamics exam I will never pass anyway! And this Amarth-person you might see referred in the text is just me. Pseudonyms, nicknames, confusion is lovely.

(To all those reading: Yes, i know i should be capitalizing my “i”-s but when i was first learning to write i was kind of unsure if i should be capitalizing it. Seemed like such an egotistical thing to do. Capitalize any moment you refer to yourself. And anyway, it’s stuck and it’s there and you can go suck on a caramel if you don’t like it. Seriously. It’ll mellow you out.)

2009-08-26 21:42:16  <Amarth> Don’t you want to play a fun DOS game instead and guest review it on LPO? 😛

Why, that’s a splendid idea! Of course, since i’m an irredeemably boring person, i decided to define “fun” as “the next one alphabetically”. And since i apparently don’t know the alphabet, I played “Airborne Ranger” instead.
