Text adventure attempt 02 - December 2019

Encouraged by my surprisingly successful first attempt to have a crack at a random text adventure, I thought I'd try it again this week. This time the random pick is Moon Magic . Apparently it was on a (fairly late) Crash cover tape, so I guess a few people may have played it before (but not me). ht...

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

Just been playing Automated Cave Explorer . I'm surprised by this game. Is one of the best Boulder Dash clones I've played and there are a TON of them! One of the things that I've noticed (so far) is that although there are moving creatures/enemies, they don't move so crazily fast that you don't ha...

Re: Which MIA game would you love to have?

I was also intrigued by the idea behind the 'original' Scooby Doo, though I suppose as it materialised (just in a changed shape) some might say it's not really MIA.

Although I wasn't the biggest fan of Marsport, I would have liked to see how the sequel(s) - Fornax and Gath - turned out.

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

I managed to get past that section after some trial and error. You need to move three squares to the right to position yourself under the boulder. Then quickly move downward, move right to collect the gems and go back towards the left to avoid getting trapped. Brilliant, thanks..! https://i.imgur.c...

Don't think i played a single one of these, maybe Forest At Worlds End and/or Heroes Of Karn but not certain.
No vote from me.
Me too. Those adventures look interesting though, may have to try one or two.

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

Just been playing Automated Cave Explorer . Clearly a Boulderdash-style game, but make no mistake - this one's a real puzzler. The controls are pleasantly responsive and it's easy to react quickly and push things even under the pressure of falling boulders. Thankfully there's also no time limit and ...

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

Impressed by Yazzie. As Ale says, typical Denis Grachev game, it's very slick & playable.

...Thanks for providing the first puzzle-arcade game in some time that I've actually been able to finish..! :lol:

20 levels, no obvious difficulty spikes. Nice.

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

Wow, these look amazing. In a way it's almost a shame that it's a competition, there's some real quality games here that deserve some individual 'new game' announcement attention. Have been having a quick play here and there, but hoping to spend some time playing them all properly. Alone in a dark m...
