MONTHLY 5 - JUNE 2021

https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/crusader-conspiracy-in-kingdom-of.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/full-tilt-pinball.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/galapagos-mendels-escape.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/harry-potter-and-chamber-of-secrets.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/qin-tomb-of-middle-kingdom.html

I'm getting June's post up just in time, though the video will take a little longer I'm afraid. Still, there are some doozies in this quintet of interactive gems. First up is an educational title set in the Medieval times; Crusader: A Conspiracy in the Kingdom of Jerusalem (1997 Index+). Anyone who ever had a Windows PC in the 90s played Full Tilt Pinball (1995, Maxis) or at least the Space Cadet demo the operating systems came with.  Next up is Galapagos: Mendel's Escape (1997 Anark Game Studios), a unique puzzle game that uses artificial intelligence in a disopian 3D world.  We also continue our adventures with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002 Electronic Arts) - more of the same, but better; just how I like it! The last game is an adventure set in the ruins of an ancient necropilis in Qin: Tomb of the Middle Kingdom (1995 Learn Technologies Interactive). Enjoy, and I'll see you soon for the predictably late video rundown...

  1. Absolutely loved the Crusader game. Even if you look at it as a game instead of edutainment it still rules. I did try to get the sequel to work, but it looks like I couldn't get the animations to run. Hopefully it'll be added here soon.

  2. There's another DK game I played as a kid: My First Math Adventure: Adding And Subtracting. Is that a game you're familiar with and are you going to put that on in the future?

  3. I am enough of a nerd that Crusader was great for me. Although, I've been known to sit and dive through old Encarta CD's of knowledge lol

    1. The education side of things was very well done. I just felt the storytelling lacked the same oomph as the visuals. I'll definitely try Vikings at some point.
