Even today, these games have their charm and can bring you a lot of fun for many hours. At this moment more than 600 games are available and waiting to be played again.
Old games are often referred to as abandonware - this is a term for the abandoned software - for example software that is no longer sold and its original creator does not provide any support for it.
2 Fast 4 You (aka 2FAST4YOU) is a racing freeware created by order of the German company B-Fi, promoting its products. The game is a classic arcade reminiscent of the famous Wacky Wheels, where you race across the landscape in an attempt to achieve the best lap time. During the race, of course, you must not forget to collect Bi-Fi products lying around the track, such as mini-rolls, sausages and sausages.
You can choose from several cars with which you will race and the legendary Trabi / Trabant is not missing among them. Your computer opponents can stand on the starting grid with a Thunderbird, a Jeep, or a Bi-Fi car that resembles an old bug. You can also choose from several different competitions. The Adventure Cup takes you to natural circuits in the Grand Canyon or the jungle, the Fun Cup contains fun tracks and the Danger Cup takes you through an ice circuit, a desert and a volcanic island track.
Even in peaceful looking fantasy worlds, communities are not spared from pathological phenomena, including drug problems! A mysterious puppeteer who calls himself a "dream lord" distributes his psychotropic substance after dark on the streets of cities, in the land of Lamarge, to an ever-expanding circle of "clients". Whoever tastes the substance called Opitar once, becomes completely addicted to it and is eventually able to kill a member of his family for the dose. The ruler of the Moon City, Lady Rowena, therefore summons a group of experienced adventurers. With the promise of immeasurable treasures, the hero sets out to find the one spreading the poison through the streets of Lamarg cities.
Spirit of Adventurer can be described as the German answer to Brian Fargo's The Bard's Tale trilogy. The most noticeable thing is the identical combat system, which is divided into turns, during which you are told which blow was delivered or taken. The gameplay therefore depends, just like in the aforementioned trilogy, on the well-matched party that the player assembles at the very beginning of the game. He comes up with a name, class (magician, goddess, warrior, amazon, priest, fairy, samurai, banshee) and race (odinary, Tidician, Dice Allany) for each of the group of up to six heroes. Accordingly, the starting level of primary (body, mind, magic) and secondary statistics (strength, dexterity, IQ, charisma) will be created for them. Then nothing prevents you from wandering through forests, villages, castles and cities, with the aim of finding the villain who is devouring the kingdom from behind the shadowy bowers.
The story of MechWarrior revolves around a character named Gideon Braver Vandenburg. His family was murdered and the chalice signifying that he was the heir to the throne on his home planet Ander's Moon was stolen. Without this chalice, he is banished from the planet. In his role, your task is to fix everything and find the person who committed this crime. You have to do all this within five years, otherwise everything will be irretrievably lost.
The basis of the game is BattleMechs, which you can buy, sell or repair if you damage them in battle. All this costs a lot of money, but you earn it by selling it or winning a fight. Of course, you can hire MechWarriors drivers who are of different levels for the bots, and of course you also have to pay them to work for you. In the game, there are several clans called Houses that you can travel between and fill different bowls. Depending on your decisions, you can build good relations with these clans or, on the contrary, antagonize them, which results in them ceasing to offer you more lucrative bowls.
Combat is conducted from a first-person perspective from the cockpit of a robot. You walk around the map looking for targets to destroy. However, mission objectives can be diverse. Sometimes you destroy something, sometimes you defend it. As already mentioned, for these bowls you get money to buy or repair other robots, but also reputation with individual clans.
Combat Pillows (Bulánci) is a popular action game created by the Czech studio SleepTeam labs. They entered the scene with it in 2001 and so far several versions containing additional levels and weapons or removed bugs have been released. The title is freeware, which means you can download it for free. Successful isometric two-dimensional graphics and a very entertaining game principle made the game a cult.
The game is intended for one or more players. Multiplayer also contributed to its expansion. It is possible to play on one computer (maximum three players), over a network or over the Internet. Low hardware requirements also contributed to the success of the title, because a processor with a clock rate of 133 MHz and 32 MB of RAM are sufficient for its smooth operation.
The characters are colorful cushions that fight fiercely with each other. The authors also refer to them as EAP, i.e. extremely aggressive combat pillows (Bulánci in Czech). In the single-player campaign, the player is also introduced to their history. It is too similar to ours.
You have 5 weapons that you can use to destroy each other. They are a pistol, a submachine gun, a rocket launcher, a shotgun and a mine. Each of them has different properties and effect, so it is best to tactic depending on the environment. Various bonuses also appear on the maps to help you gain the upper hand.
The evil Count Chuck has kidnapped all the world's animals in order to turn them into soldiers in his dark army. Johnny Dash's dog, Tex, has been captured along with the other animals, and it's up to him to enter the Night World and save him! You use a slingshot to combat the ghastly enemies, which include skeletons, zombies, and severed hands. You can collect power-ups to increase your slingshot's power (only for a limited number of shots, however), candy for bonus points, hearts for health, and Johnny-shaped voodoo dolls for extra lives. On each level, you must find all the animals in cages and shoot the lock on their cages, freeing them. Only then will the exit to the next level open. At the end of each of the three episodes, a boss awaits.
Acting as a mercenary, take charge of an F-16 Falcon and fly more than 40 dangerous missions all across destabilized regions of Africa. F-16 AGGRESSOR is the closest anyone outside the military will get to experiencing an F-16 Falcon. he game throws you into a series of pre-made missions based on Africa, with the option to play multiplayer dogfights for up to 8 players. Included are the usual amount of features found on hardcore sims, like blackouts, redouts, etc though there is no padlock view. Graphics are Direct3d and Glide accelerated and include various smoke and lighting effects. This isn't a perfect F-16 game, but it's fairly realistic - much more realistic than Novalogic's F-16 Multirole Fighter for example. You have good control over the airplane, you can switch between MFD moves, HUD modes, etc. The flight modelling is ok, the manual is large and detailed and the gameplay is pretty complex - not a hardcore sim like Falcon 4.0, but still OK. The campaign isn't very complex and the story is rubbish but you get instant action and training missions.
Harry is a simple boy, an orphan whose parents were killed and left on the doorstep of his new parents. As the boy grows, he discovers that he is not ordinary and that he has some special abilities. He doesn't know why or how, but he gets turned on when the invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry arrives. He decides to accept and travel to school. That's when you get into the game and let yourself be guided by the yet unknown world of magic.
As soon as you get to the school, you make friends and enemies and find out that the school is divided into two parts, good and bad. You get among the good ones and you gradually gain their respect and admiration with your skill. You go through hours of magic, from simply moving objects, unlocking locks with charms, levitating, shrinking things, animating things, to flying on a broomstick. Each hour has a vast maze of rooms where you have to use magic, look for magic stars and magic cards and collect some crystals. As for the obstacles, they are mostly a combination of skill and logic, where you have to press something and then jump over while you have to watch out for enemy ghosts, gigantic giants, or dangerous plants. So to put it somewhere, it's an arcade-like action, colored by a story, humor, magic and danger.
Once in a while there is a game that defines new genre and bring you new game play style. One of these games is Call of Duty - a first-person shooter set during World War II and the first title in a long-running series. In the game you experience the battle in Europe during World War II in different campaigns divided further into missions. There is an American, a British and a Soviet campaign as well, each focusing on different parts of the battle. In total there are 24 interconnected missions to play to get to Berlin. In each campaign a different perspective is offered, starting as an American Paratrooper during D-Day, progressing to assume the role as an English Special Forces commando, and finally as a Russian tank commander. Some missions are played in solitary fashion, but in most of them the player is part of a larger group with computer-controlled team mates.
After Infocom has been disbanded, some of its developers founded Legend Entertainment to build on its gaming portfolio. The first Legend games, which combine graphic and textual elements (you can already click on the image with the mouse), are a direct evolution of the purely textual adventures that Infocom made famous, and their later (and more famous) point and click adventures (Death gate, etc.) were again logically significantly affected by the user interface of this older generation of games.
The first part of the Spellcasting trilogy by Steve Meretzky. The protagonist is a young magician Ernie Eaglebeak, who has just started studying at the University of Magic (he gets there after escaping from the house of his evil stepfather). However, rather than studying, he is interested in his scantily clad classmates. However, the outside world will soon make itself known through the kidnappers, who will deprive the university not only of part of the staff, but also of the equipment that can cause the end of the world in the wrong hands. Ernie therefore has to go out into the world to get the abducted people and the stolen object back (and at the same time to know other scantily clad beauties).
Tennis Elbow is the first game in a series of tennis sports games by French developers Mana Games. Unlike competing games, the title relies on simplicity. All you need to control is four directional keys to move your game character around the court. Other actions are then performed by the character itself, depending on the distance from the ball.
The title offers a complete World Tour against 250 opponents, 4 types of court surfaces and also the opportunity to create your own character, including attributes and graphic differentiation. You watch the event from the perspective of a third party and the game can also be played online.
