Gold Rush! Classic
Classic Sierra Adventure Games;
So, that intro from the beginning makes me sigh from the inside. These games (for me) are memories of growing up and sitting on my father’s knee and learning about computers…(the next step involved constructing my own PC from scratch, but that’s a different story for a different time)
Sierra INVENTED the adventure genre as far as I’m concerned, and “Gold Rush” is not only an excellent example of a classic adventure game, it is also the benchmark for self-involved concepts as well as being true to life history.

This game can be super annoying if you don’t know what to expect. Part of it is the primitive mechanics. It’s not like today’s point and click game where you click on a location and the character will move there. You have to use your arrow keys to direct every step of the movement. You also have to instruct the character what to do. Encountering another character will not automatically trigger conversation. You have to tell your character to ‘talk’ by typing this in. If you don’t type in the correct series of words, this will also halt your progress. And last but not least, there is potential to fall into a big hole in this game. Let’s say you did not pick up a certain something on level one, well if you don’t have it at level 10, you can forget finishing this game … Still, there is a lot of charm to this game with its graphics and story plot. I recommend it on sale. I would also like to play the updated anniversary edition.
Never in my whole life have I been more terrified within the realms of a video game.
I believe a large portion of that comes from my intense phobia of nuclear power plants, but there’s also a huge variety of aspects this game nails in terms of horror. As someone experienced with music composition and production, the first thing I want to point out is the absolutely stellar sound design. Low, abstract drones bounce off of each wall, and you know it’s coming from… somewhere. But you don’t know where.

It’s a short but tense 3D exploration and interaction game, it happens in several rooms inside a nuclear plant. The story is based on an important fragment of the actual event Chernobyl Disaster.
Old story in 1986, then not the modern HD style. If you don’t accept pixel things, go to Settings- Video- Filter Strength, turn it Low or None.
Radiation detector sound and background noise in plant. No intentional extra sfx.
1. There might be some bugs under fixing, but it doesn’t influence the experience if you like this kind of game. The developers are active in the pinned discussion so just ask.
A tremendous power lies in VR. Anything you imagine, anywhere you dream, any time you envision - it can get you there.
Have you ever wondered what the Handley-Page 42 looked like in real life? Or what size was a Messerschmitt Me-323 Gigant? Or Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria? All of them are long since gone, but with the incredible power of virtual reality they can be brought back to life. And this is what the VR Museum was created for.
There are many great inventions that are only known from drawings and blurry photos. And many of them are already 3D-modelled and scattered around the net. The idea behind the VR Museum is to locate them, refurb if necessery, and show here for everyone to see. Starting from airplanes, the Museum’s collection will grow to become more interdisciplinary in the future.

I bought this game on apr 6 and just got around to playing it. The controls are fine its just that you get stuck on almost all the objects and when I made it to lvl 2 or the woods area.. I couldn’t interact with any of the intractable objects. So I tried to reboot the game and my PC to no a vale. Overall if my game actually worked I would rate this a 6-10 just because it looks so cool with all the robots and the Wall-E type of feel I got from it, but it just sucks that my game got stuck like that. So if you plan to buy it just take this into account. Peace and love to the developers.
Interesting art style and concept however the finished package that’s delivered for us to play is not fully developed and comes off as a bit bland. Not worth playing. Also, really should have picked a more unique name so it can even show up in the Steam search. Only reason why I found it was because of a direct link in a random discussion somewhere.
1971: Indian Naval Front
1971 : Indian Naval Front is a Naval Combat game made as a tribute to the Indian Navy towards their contribution during the 1971 India-Pakistan War.
_1971 was a year filled with diplomatic tensions between India and her neighbour Pakistan. As the atrocities by the Armed Forces from West Pakistan against the people of East Pakistan kept increasing, Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India decided to act on it and determined to liberate East Pakistan(Bangladesh) as an independent country. During the months of October and November in 1971, Indian Navy sent her famed aircraft carrier INS Vikrant and few more powerful vessels to create a blockade against the naval vessels of West Pakistan and her allies in the Bay of Bengal to the East. Pakistan Air Force, on 3rd December, attacked multiple Indian airfields along the North and North West regions of India.
The War had now officially begun!
In retaliation, the Indian Navy sent 3 of her Osa-I class missile boats in an operation codenamed Operation Trident with an objective to destroy the Karachi Harbour. Operation Trident was a resounding success! After this point, major naval operations were kicked off in both the Eastern and Western waters; an encounter with the Pakistan Navy’s Submarine PNS Ghazi being one of them. Indian Navy’s fighter jets like the Hawker Seahawk were also used to destroy many East Pakistani Airfields and Harbours like Chittagong and Cox Bazaar.
On 16th December, Pakistan eventually signed the Instrument of Surrender and Bangladesh was declared an independent country.
1971 : Indian Naval Front will enable you to experience pretty much all the Indian Navy operations executed during the 1971 War including transmission of intel through morse codes!_
Play with iconic ships of the Indian Navy like INS Vikrant, INS Rajput, INS Brahmaputra, INS Veer, etc.
Experience real world missions in the form of a campaign like Operation Trident, taking out PNS Ghazi, destruction of airfields, etc.
Wreak havok from the air using the Hawker Seahawk of Indian Navy.
Fly the classic Westland Seaking helicopter for recon and search and rescue missions.
15 levels of naval and air combat missions.
Transmit Morse Codes to deliver intel as part of the Military Intelligence team.
A Quick Battle mode with preset scenarios and classic time-trial modes.
Death Trader: Cold War
This game was great! It was super fun and im suprised its not more laggy and gltchy than it is, i was sceptical buying it but im glad i did, lots of fun, you need to fix a few bugs but i loved it otherwise and suggest you buy it! One thing I would like to see is things like being able to change the time you start like 1960, 62', 65, etc. I would also like to see more weapons from more country’s, I would like a variety in this game.
The game has a few kinks but the dev(s?) have been quick to patch. It is worthwhile, especially on sale. I’ve not been able to get more than 2 years into the 30 that the game has due to bugs but I’ve gotten a lot of fun out of it.
I can now play 15 out of the 30 years of the game before it crashes or becomes unplayable. The majority of the early bugs are gone, the gameplay is more user friendly with a better ui/tooltip, was a fun game before but it’s even better now. The devs may have released it prematurely, even as early access, but it’s been rapidly improved.
Mini Words: Top Games
I just can’t leave a positive review.
The feeling is that 90% of the questions are about Mario! Give me a break. A TON of other classic games were just left out to make way for the same game over and over and over again, the same problem applies to the MIni Words: Top Movies, other game from the same developers that has the same movies appearing over and over again, it’s just annoying has hell.
My downvote isn’t just because of this, although a tiny game there are still mispelling errors and the puzzle itself has terrible controls - making a path it’s a real pain! Nothing like LYNE, LYNE is so much better in every way.

In 1972, as a freshman in college, Steve Allen was introduced to Pong, the first commercial arcade game. He and his college roommates, Tommy Walker and Howard White, began their video game journey and met many of the industry’s biggest names, including Jerry Lawson, the inventor of cassette tapes, Nolan Bushnell, the founder of Atari, and the developer of ET Aliens. Warsaw, Apple’s founder Steve Jobs, and many more, are writing their own legendary stories in this glorious virtual world, but things are far less optimistic than Alan thought, and a video game winter is about to sweep across the country.
