The Best of CD-i 2007: *2D Puzzle Games*

>> Wednesday, October 31, 2007

I guess it was no surprise that the all-time classic The Apprentice won the contest last week in voting for the best platform game on CD-i. Although all other entries have its qualities, the fun-packed disc of The Apprentice really shines through, and after playing it again for a few hours, I think it is a deserved first place. This week again we welcome you to vote for the best cd-i title. You can vote for 1 or more favourites! Every week we'll spawn a new poll in the left column of this blog: Look at the left column to find the current poll! Be quick as the vote limit is only seven days! After the closing day we'll post the results in each catagory post and in the end of December 2007 we'll be back with the final decision to mark "The Best CD-i Game of 2007". I hope you'll all have fun and enjoy CD-i as much as we do! Read on for this weeks nominees:

Starting Date: October 31 End Date: November 7

This week we'll continue with all puzzle games released on CD-i. The nominees for "Best Game" are:

Mega Maze
Prepare to be aMAZED! 164 mazes await you, loaded with obstacles certain to test you skill and challenge your brain power in this unique game of strategy and mind bending fun. Your mission is to maneuver a ball to it's destination, avoiding laser pulses, spark generators, mine fields and pits of doom that devour your ball, just to name a few of the obstacles that you will meet along the way. Earn the highly coveted rank of Mazemaster. But be aware that this game is highly addictive and will provide you hours upon hours of puzzling, problem solving maze mania. Proceed at your own risk!

Pac Panic
Much more than the return of the ghost-chompin' legend, PAC-PANIC is a think-fast challenge and a puzzle game, too. As the blocks fall, you gotta think quick and move quicker, to line 'em up and make 'em vanish.

Tetris
Tetris... a classic game in a class of its own. Originally conceived by Alexey Pazhitnov and designed by Vadim Gerasimov of the former USSR, Tetris is recognised all over the world for its elegant simplicity and challenging game play. Tetris CD-i is the ultimate Tetris experience. Spectacular video nature scenes and an original CD score by Jim Andron, complement classic Tetris game play and elevate this phenomenon to new heights. In CD-i, the classic becomes a legend. You'll find Tetris CD-i irresistibly addicting as you try to rotate and flip moving pieces to fit into a solid line at the bottom of the playing field. Remove ten lines and you move on to the next level! Discover what game players all over the world have learned... This is one addiction you can't live without.

Big Bang Show
Big Bang Show is an exciting and challenging game of skills featuring Albertus the mad scientist and his latest discovery, Sparkie, a bouncing ball of energy. For 1 to 2 players, Big Bang Show is a 2-module game package: - The "main module" is an arcade action game, with 100 screens and a rising level of challenge; - The "question module" is the Time Quizz, comprising 1000 questions on the historical periods the player travels through: - Big Bang - Prehistory - Middle age - 20th century - Future. Only when the player collects the right items, avoids the traps and answers Albertus' questions, can he hyper-space jump into another period. This requires reflexes, speed, knowledge and memory. More than just a game, the host Albertus adds warmth, humour and personality, presenting realistic adventure for the participants to experience.

Whack a Bubble
Get set for over 100 levels of sheer gaming pleasure and brainteasing fun! Beat the clock or your friends. This action/puzzle calls for skill, quick thinking and a couple of secret special moves.

Lemmings
Lemmings is another classic game for CD-i. It's an intriguing +100 level game in which you help hordes of mindless but loveable creatures, known as lemmings to escape hostile worlds.

Dimo's Quest
So you call yourself a real game freak, do you? Go ahead then, sharpen up those steel nerves, fine-tune your incredible reflexes and get to show just how cool you really are. For in this heroic game you will face countless challenes... Become Dimo and find your way through 51 levels of full action and adventure!

Merlin's Apprentice
Leap into a magical fully animated world of medieval sorcery, where you must solve puzzles at every turn - mastering secret codes, capturing elusive enchantments, conjuring spells and matching wits with demons in your quest to find Merlin and win his trust. Thirty mind-boggling puzzles await you, with eight types of tricky sorcerer's challenges, three daring levels of difficulty and countless variations. Solve a puzzle and the tale builds with dazzling animation, plunging you deeper into Merlin's marvellous world. Your quest is about to begin. Be brave. Be shrewd. Be worthy.

Labyrinth of Crete
Being developed during the same period as Merlin's Apprentice, Labyrinth was more of an updated version using enhancements of the digital video cartridge. The theme was changed, and a few additional concepts were added, but merely this is the same game. It was finished in 1995 and saw the light of day on CD-ROM first. Actually, this title was first developed on the cd-i platform, but due to hectic problems at Funhouse caused by the departure of Cliff Johnson (to Activision), somehow the project got shelved for a while. In 1997, after re-organizations of the whole Philips Media structure, this title was released eventually.

Interactive Dreams thanks everyone from the CD-i Community to keep CD-i alive!
