MONTHLY 5 - October 2020

https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/doctor-hauzer.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/eight-legged-freaks.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/satan.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/the-vampire-diaries.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/xenomorph.html

We may have to stay inside this Halloween, but with this bunch of old games, you don't have to waste it. Dusting off their sheets to escape the Chamber are the platforming skills of Satan (1989 Dinamic Software), the first-person shooting horrors of Eight Legged Freaks (2002 Warner Bros), the role-playing freak-outs of Xenomorph (1990 Pandora) and the survival horror that is Doctor Hauzer (1994 Riverhill Soft). Scariest of all is the teen romancing of The Vampire Diaries (1996 American Laser Games), but at least they have some vampire attacks in there to calm the nerves. 

October also got a slew of updates. 3D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night, Gahan Wilson's Ultimate Haunted House and Jurassic Park Collection: Volume 2 all got a little easier to get running on Windows 10. Check them out after the jump!

HIDDEN GEMS - TOP 10 SPOOKY GAMES FOR KIDS

 

This one took a while to compile, but it wouldn't be the Halloween without a swathe of spooky retro titles for you to game to. This time, I present my personal, completely biased Top 10 list the best 90s kids games best played in the Halloween season. I've limited myself to games that are no longer sold, so no Maniac Mansion, Hocus Pocus or MediEvil, and those specifically aimed at the younger critters infesting households the world over.
 
From the list, there are 4 titles new to the Chamber, and another 2 that have been updated. That's Are You Afraid of the Dark, an adventure game based on the classic Nickelodeon show, I.M. Meen, and excuse to learn grammar while playing a Doom clone, Jan Pienkowski's Haunted House, based on the still-impressive pop up book and Nightmare Ned, of the best Disney show no-one remembers. Check them out after the jump by following the links below, but not before you catch my video on the subject!

THE DARK EYE - Video Review




Let's kick off the month of October with a few chilling tales from Edgar Allen Poe, a game I tend to revisit often this time of year. Watch the video review above, then check out the full review and game by heading to the link below.
