MONTHLY 5 - November 2022

https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/eraser-turnabout.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/fur-fighters.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/heimdall-2-into-hall-of-worlds.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/the-lost-files-of-sherlock-holmes-case.html https://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/p/take-your-best-shot.html

This year has flown by. You blink, and it's the end of November! I've mostly been engrossed in God of War: Ragnarok since it came out, but the rest of my free time has been dedicated to The Collection Chamber. There are 5 great games featured this month so check out the obscure movie licenced FMV adventure (with too many arcade bits) Eraser Turnabout (1996 Imagination Pilots & Warner Bros.), the many versions of the underrated action platformer Fur Fighters (2000 Bizarre Creations Ltd), the Norse-themed role-playing sequel Heimdall 2: Into the Hall of Worlds (1994 Core Design), a classic point-and-click adventure starring everone's favourite sleuth The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel (1992 Mythos Software & Electronic Arts) and Bill Plympton's Take Your Best Shot (1995 7th Level Inc) a desktop toy based on his award-winning 1991 short Push Comes to Shove.

There are a couple of revisions too. Kiss: Psycho Circus - The Nightmare Child now uses a Windows 10 patch instead of dxWnd granting it better compatibility. I've also added a scan of the manual too. The Neverhood has also been revised updating ScummVM and fixing some save-game and screenshot annoyances. If you've not played either before, give them a go. They're pretty good.

To try the others, head on past the jump and dive in.

  4. Just thought of a few more: (no rush with any of these, of course - I'm just a huge fan of 90's CD-ROM games and want to make sure you know about them)

    Secrets of the Luxor - first-person point-and-click adventure game, featuring a Stargate-esque plot
    Celtica - like Myst, but Irish
    Midnight Stranger - Canadian first-person adventure game, about the people you meet while wandering around at night
    MODE - the epic sequel to Midnight Stranger, about sneaking into an artsy party that hides a bizarre secret
    The Elroy Series - Two adventure games (Elroy Goes Bugzerk and Elroy Hits the Pavement) and a unique creativity toy (Elroy's Costume Closet), made by the company behind the Gigglebone Gang, but aimed at a slightly older audience
