The American Delta Vengeance Action Blood Force Kill Commando

The American Delta Vengeance Action Blood Force Kill Commando is a freeware first person shooter with a very distinct Commodore 64 feel. Clearly the game is far to advanced for an actual Commodore 64 to play, but the new-retro graphics make it pretty clear what the developers were going for. The damn game tripped my anti-virus, and then once it was cleared by the antivirus (the game is safe) it would immediately crash upon starting. Even playing around with the compatibility settings made no difference. So while I can’t actually give any kind of review for this game, it, ah, looks kinda cool.… Read the rest

Zombie Shooting Lite

Download page The title says it all. Zombie Shooting. That’s literally the game. You stand in a room with a gun and shoot zombies. Have you ever played a game that failed to deliver? A game with a title that mislead or flat out lied to the player. Yeah? Well this game is the absolute opposite of that. There is no bullshit training mode to sit through, nor is there some third rate b-movie level plot. No hammy voice actors just reading straight from a script and hoping that their pay check will cover this months liqour bill. It really is nothing but shooting zombies.… Read the rest

Hexen

Hexen, often considered the spiritual successor of Heretic, was developed by Raven Software and first released in 1994 for the PC. It was later ported to the Playstation, Saturn and N64. I had fond memories of playing Hexen, both the old DOS version as well as the Playstation port. After discovering Zdoom, a fantastic source-port of the original doom engine, I set out on an adventure into nostalgia. I instantly remembered what I loved about this game as soon as I loaded it up. The atmosphere really gets under your skin. It’s a Sword and Sorcery themed game and is filled with misty moors, dark forests, scorched wastelands and murky swamps.… Read the rest

Heretic

Heretic was released in 1994 and put together by Raven Software, who would go on to rule the roost in the “dark-fantasy-first-person-shooter” niche. It was made using a modified version of the doom engine. Heretic feels a lot like Doom, and many of the weapons seem like medieval counterparts of Doom’s arsenal. But there is also enough here to really make it a game of its own. Jumping and crouching are two things that Heretic does but Doom doesn’t, and they add another aspect to game play. Probably the biggest change is the inventory system, which was ground breaking in its time.… Read the rest
