Starting Date: November 21 End Date: November 28
This week we'll continue with all Interactive Cartoons released on CD-i. The nominees for "Best Game" are:
Escape from Cybercity
The Earth is under attack. The evil Guardian's Forces are in control. Only a few continue to resist and only a you can help. Your mission is to survive the dangers of CyberCity. Fight you war to the train and destroy the Guardian's planet. Beware: Things are not what they seem... Escape From CyberCity is the first CD-interactive action adventure to utilize full-cel animation, giving the player the feel of starring in a fast action motion picture. This beautifully animated production features a dynamic, high impact soundtrack and complete interactive play.
Brain Dead 13
After the initial success of Dragon's Lair creating the Full Motion Video Adventure genre for video games its successor and spin-offs including Space Ace offered little innovation to the gameplay. As a late arrival Brain Dead 13 reworked the genre with a simple refreshing approach, infinite lives and multiple ways to die! This addition to the games mechanic removed the frustration typically associated with these games and served up a fun and varied gaming experience. See the boxout below for a few examples of the multiple deaths and resurrections inflicted upon the games hero Lance Galahad pushing the boundaries of cartoon violence to the limit!
The lovely Princess Daphne has been kidnapped by the evil wizard Mordroc. She's been whisked away to be placed in the charge of a wicked fire breathing Dragon called Singe. You must lead Dirk, our hapless hero, through Mordroc's castle. Help Dirk defeat the monsters lurking in every room. The ultimate challege lies in the Dragon's Lair. Outmanoeuvre the Wizard, defeat the Dragon and rescue the princess before it's too late!
Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp
Having tried to lose Dirk in the Dragon's Lair, the evil wizard Mordroc strikes again, kidnapping Princess Daphne to a wrinkle in time. Join Dirk and his Time Machine in hot and hilarious pursuit. Defeat the Wizard or Daphne will be lost forever.
Ace, Earth's greatest hero, is being attacked by the evil commander Borf. Borf has just kidnapped the beautiful Kimberley, and is plotting to take over the planet Earth with the help of his dreaded weapon - the Infanto Ray. Only you can guide Ace through treacherous battles to destroy the Infanto Ray, save Earth and rescue Kimberley. Be valiant, space warrior, the fate of Earth is in your hands!
