Title: Name the Game
Post by: frenzykitty on 17 Apr 2013, 17:17
Just came up with this idea last night! Similar to the movie thread, but this time with adventure game screenshots :)

I'll start:

Operation Stealth by Delphine Software.

I'm so bad at guessing the movie titles. Here I can finally compete :tongue:

100% Correct. Sorry - I was AFK for a bit! :)



Excellent, why haven't we done this before?

I dont know. When I came up with it I was worried that it HAD been done before! Glad its a new thing :)

Post by: Sunny Penguin on 19 Apr 2013, 01:08
Well, looks like I'm going to have to be that guy.

Guilty!

Now, here's another incredibly obscure choice, but arguably still falls into the adventure game genre:

Good luck.

HINT TIME: It's based on a HORROR NOVEL by a very well known horror author. :) There was also a movie adaptation. :)
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Gribbler on 19 Apr 2013, 14:29
The interface seems familiar... Horror author you say? I bet it's some Stephen King's novel.
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Tramponline on 19 Apr 2013, 14:36
The other "The Birds" movie... :tongue:

Ahh, George...Stark?
Then it's probably 'The Dark Half'.

Admittedly, I would've never guessed it without your hint.
Never played the game, only read the novel during my Stephen King craze, a long,
looong time ago.

(...the first game being Wolfenstein 3D). Nudge, nudge! :wink:

A cross? A mausoleum? I'd go for Noctropolis.

Blade Runner, or the uuhhh, Tex Murphy?

It's Fish!. A wacky graphically enhanced text adventure about a goldfish secret agent on vacation(!),
involuntarily forced to foil the plan of a group called the "Seven Deadly Fins" who're trying to take over the (water-)world.
x1 x2 x3 x4

It was all the rage when it came out and even 'Game of the Year' in most computer magazines. Also one of the
most discussed games that year throughout various magazines' hint sections, coz people kept on getting stuck...
Title: Re: Name the Game

This game already featured the 'combining notes' function. Only it's execution in-game was so particular and at the same time so random (you had to guess which
words were important and which ones weren't) that it drove you nuts! Still, a great game...

Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Gribbler on 20 Apr 2013, 23:20

Is this even PC? Looks like Cruise for a Corpse on C64 with a little dose of Spy vs Spy :smiley:
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Tramponline on 20 Apr 2013, 23:23

Title: Re: Name the Game

Not based on a book, but it does 'borrow' from a few (in particular Christie):

Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Gribbler on 21 Apr 2013, 00:24
In what way can it be related to Cruise for a corpse? Only that the setting is steamboat? Or does it go deeper?
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Tramponline on 21 Apr 2013, 00:37
They share the same genre. The only difference being that Cruise for a Corpse takes place on the open ocean, while for this game rather 'the opposite' is true.
If you know 'where' you've almost got the name of the game.

Post by: Khris on 21 Apr 2013, 11:22

(I'm so looking forward to General_Knox's project by the way. Check out his threads, if you haven't done so already!)

The next one is a bit tricky: I hope you guys will forgive me, but I had to 'alter' it slightly.
Where it says 'Player' is has the protagonist's name in the original screen-shot. (That would've been
a dead giveaway.)

First Lost Files had a very specific graphics type. I would recognize it by the fraction of the screen :smiley:

There are black bars above and below the picture to fill up the screen, but that's all. I believe the inventory is visible below the picture, when opened.
The guy in the screenshot is not the player character.

Not Chronomaster. This one also has a visible player character, but I think he just went up the stairs.

Man, Simon the Sorcerer 1 is one of THE BEST non LucasArts and non Sierra adventure games ever! You must try it.

Sadly, this game is not Simon1. Another hint: there are no dialogues in an entire game, and the interface is icon based.

Let's make a game based on a highly pornographic comic book, but leave out all the pornography!

Druuna, the comic, does have oodles of European sci-fi weirdness to it, but it's also wall-to-wall genitals. The game is just six CDs of balls.

I also wanted to make a point. Where's the fun in posting super old games published just only in one country? I mean, that "German game, based on German novel and published only in Germany" :-\ It only grinds the thread to a halt.

Or that Russian plasticine game.

There are many great well-known games to guess. If you want to make it harder cut out interface, or character, or post non-gameplay screenshot. I mean, take that "Death Gate" post for example. It was clever, and I had my slap facepalm "Of course!!!" moment when I saw the answer. And I was hoping to get many of those here. I wish somebody posted a King's Quest V screenshot I could not guess, or some other widely known game. You get the idea. :smiley:

Well, this one is well known, because I recognize the visuals. It's either

Shivers

or

the sequel Shivers II: Harvest of Souls.

But if someone could determine which they'll get the turn.

I used to haunt a local department store's computer section, just to be able to play that game (before knowing anything about computers or owning one).
I remember, I got chased away by the store clerks on a regular base, only to sneak back in after an hour or so!
Never knew what it was called though...

edit: That's so AWESOME!! Still can't believe it! (Sorry for raving - I'm' having kind of a moment here!! :tongue:)
THIS game is how I got into computers in the first place! (Around later that year I got my C-64) WOW!

The thread starter's first post is what lead me to believe it was focused on adventure games.  Quote: "Just came up with this idea last night! Similar to the movie thread, but this time with adventure game screenshots"

Beyond Shadowgate is a PC-E... errr... TG16 game and it's nothing like this (it in fact looks like those Sierra/Lucasfilm Games adventure games).
It's more likely Shadowgate 64 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadowgate_64:_Trials_of_the_Four_Towers).

I've never actually played this but I've seen the screen shot before when I googled the old toonstruck looking for some music from that game. According to the Wikipedia entry for toonstruck there was additional material made but not included in the first game, and it has been or will be released in a second game.

Yep, this is the link - both screens cut from the game in question. That cut Toonstruck stuff was originally all going to be in the first game, right? Then they cut it due to time/budget issues with the intention of making a second game out of it but never did :(

Nope, but I'm aware of it as being one of the early adventure games.  Around the time it came out, or maybe a little after, I was plugging away on an Atari 8-bit (800xl and later 130xe).

Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: abstauber on 18 Jul 2013, 13:54
I bet at the time this game was release you've dumped the Amiga long ago ;)
You also needed an AGA chipset for this one (A1200, CD32 etc).
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Gribbler on 18 Jul 2013, 14:41
Well, I was pretty hardcore Amiga fan. I had A1200 with a hard disk. I remember that Hare Raising Havoc worked only on AGA chipset. I dumped Amiga when 3D games started being popular and those were scarce on it. I sold my Amiga around the time when Alien Breed 3D came out which was awful in comparison to PC's Doom for example.

Getting back to game guessing... I still don't have a clue. :)
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: abstauber on 18 Jul 2013, 15:05
Hey, that's an impressively long time span! I ditched the Amiga around '92, after my A2000 died of the leaking battery.
It didn't have an HDD anyway, so playing Indy 4 and MI2 would have been a disk swapping nightmare.

Then I bought a used A1200 in 2000 because there still wasn't a great pixel painter on the PC (hooray for DPaint V).
The game I'm looking for was only two years old by the time I bought the A1200 (hint#2). And yes, it's a commercial title and I was pretty stunned, that the "old" machine had an adventure, you couldn't have on the PC :)
And hint#3 - it's a german/italien co-production, I even found a review from Amiga Magazyn on the interwebs :)

On the contrary, for some. Back in those days I had a friend who always wanted to come by and watch me playing Indy 4... and swap those 11 disks what he thoroughly enjoyed  (laugh) I assume it had to be some "Look mom! I'm computer scientist!" thing.  :P I was a good friend and let him have fun. :)

And about your game... I must admit part of the gui does look familiar. I mean that disk symbols on the right. I guess I must have seen  screensots in a magazine or something but I will never be able to guess it. It will be one of "Oh, THAT." when I see game's title.

Post by: Scavenger on 19 Jul 2013, 08:21
It is indeed a Windows 3.x game. It's very crudely drawn and independant, and it's art really resonates with me.

And here's another clue - my favorite track from the game: Midi! (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50882197/MUSDAT04.MID)
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: abstauber on 19 Jul 2013, 08:39
Coooould this be by the same guys who did ZZT? I think I even had this on a shareware disk :)

That midi sounds terrific btw. - a lot better than what I was used to hear from Epic Megagames.
--edit:

oh well, I try to solve it:

Cactii(?) and deserts don't really play a prominent role in this game, this was just the first screenshot I could find that didn't give away a major hint of the game immediately.

What's that little rectangle in the lower left corner? Is this screenshot part of a minigame?

@qptain Nemo: I'm stunned how fast you've guessed Ooze. So it was had some commercial success outside of Germany?
I naively thought it was somewhat apparent that I'm just a game nerd, with huge interest in 90s abandonware and adventure games in particular, and a MobyGames addict. ^_^ I haven't even played Ooze yet, but it looked interesting and that particular screenshot amused me a lot when I stumbled upon it, so it was definitely memorable for me. So I can't comment on Ooze's commercial success outside of Germany, but that's the story behind my guess.
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Babar on 23 Jul 2013, 10:53
Not part of a minigame, abstauber, just that when you move the mouse over important bits of the screen, that would show up. Currently it is pointing to an area that had an object I just picked up.


Oh, and I cannot find this game on MobyGames :D.
Here's another screen to help you out, with a little more of the GUI showing:

I guess I did find one that was more difficult :D.
A more revealing screenshot, but I've taken the liberty of still hiding two things.
(http://i.imgur.com/kLXyxxl.png)

In exchange I can tell you it was an edutainment game, and I'm not finding much presence for it online aside from a couple of lets plays and pages on abandonware sites. Nemo already has a vague direction of the date of release from what I corrected of his guess earlier.
I can't make it any easier other than almost literally giving away the name of the game (which you'd be able to totally guess from what I've hidden :D).

As much as I want it to be "F15-Strike Eagle III - The Movie - The Game"... kconan and surplusguy are both partially right - it's A320 by Loriciels.
My cousin had this on his Atari (520?), but I doubt it survived long in his disk box.

Anyway: kconan was first - but nice try, Surplusguy :D
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: kconan on 31 Jul 2013, 08:30
The only reason I guessed "A320 Airbus" was because it was one of the few flight sims from back in the day that I'm not aware of, and due its lame sounding "promotional tie-in" name.

Between levels there was a bonus stage where you had to run over bad guys with a car. There were also ordinary people which you had to avoid but the car was running so fast that you eneded up hitting elderly people, mothers with babies etc. It was one sick game but I remember we had a blast playing it.

Yea, I might have jumped the gun as he didn't actually verify in his response.  But I'm 90-some percent sure its Franko.

And Gilbot is correct on Chiller.  So its either his turn, or my fault for not waiting for official Gribbler verification and the turn is still on that crazy side-scroller.

Despite my selective screenshots, the game is actually the usual third-person view typical of adventure games. I'd have attempted to post nicely staged more revealing screenshots, but the idiotic fight sequences left me bored and I quit.

You said Amiga Exclusive!  You lied!  How can we ever trust what you say ever again?!?!?!?!  How do we know this is even a game?  Maybe you just drew it to fool us!  Infamy!


Er... still no idea though I'm afraid.  The graphic style kinda remind me of The Untouchables but it's clearly not that.  Did they ever make a game of Beau Geste?!?!
Title: Re: Name the Game
Post by: Gribbler on 11 Nov 2013, 17:51
More infamy: back in the day Atari ST was such unpopular machine in my country that any game not on PC was considered Amiga exclusive, and vice versa. :-D

This a scrolling shooter, released in 1992. Apart frm shooting enemies player could slit their throats if approached undetected. I played it extensivly as a kid.

The author released the game for free later, so while it may be a bit of a problem getting it to run on modern computers, I'd still recommend you try it out:

And no. Not Purple Saturn Day (was surprised that such a game name actually existed :D)

It wasn't a super-amazing game or anything, but I'm surprised the resident experts didn't know about it :D. Was an okay enough first person space exploration trading/fighting (and a small bit of adventure RPG) type sim in the vein of the Star Control series.

If not Boulderdash itself, the only similar game I remember from around that time was called Rockman (on the C16, dunno if it was released on the Tandy).

The only 2-player Boulderdash game I remember was Skullduggery - but I think that was significantly later (had it on the Atari ST, but I guess it might have been released on the 8-bits previous to that?).

He looks like a really random out of place inverted Santa Claus to me. Also I like how much the runners are stretched across the track, like if they're crawling in a very weird half-lying pose, dragging half their butt on the ground. It took me until now to realize this is supposed to be them kneeling at the start of the race. If I still got that wrong, laugh all you want.

It isn't, though, like similar games, it has simple puzzles. It's also not an FPS.

It's from 2000...no, it's from 2004....or is it?

Post by: LimpingFish on 11 Dec 2013, 00:54
Nope to Pathologic and Heretic II. I don't believe this game used a third-party engine.

This game was published twice (by different publishers), on two different platforms.

I own both versions!

Hellboy: Asylum Seeker's a PS1 game from 2004 that's a port of a 2000 PC game... so is that it?

Plus the game's crap, so there's that.

EDIT: Plus the publisher Cryo Interactive's from France, hence merde.

Also, the PC version is called Hellboy: Dogs of the Night, if you were talking about that one.

Gee, I'd really hate to be wrong after putting all these clues together.

Alright. So... it's an RPG. It's quite unexpectedly humourous and interesting. I say unexpectedly because the theme of the game is something countless other games have played with a straight face and done it to death. A part of the name of the theme is also a part of the name of the game.

Don't get too hung up on the whole ALF thing. It's the inside of a cinema with ALF up on screen, he's just an 'easter egg' (...you blow up that same cinema later on in the game!)
ALF is really just a good indicator around what time this game came out.

I'm just a devoted gamer with a little bit of deductive skills. If I don't know the game instantly the process looks something like this (Inindo example): Top-down view, looks like RPG, Asian theme, looks like early 90s, probably '92 or '93, most likely Asian word in the title, and hey, what have we here? Way of the ninja? Must be it. Bingo!

I hope you don't consider this way of guessing a cheating. Because if you do, my pal SkyNet will... eeer... I mean... Danger danger. Compromise. Compromise. Restarting. Three, two, one, initializing...

Alright, apparently nobody played this but me. Here's some hints, first one to Google the answer can take the next turn:
It's a DOS game from 1992.
The goal of the game is shown in one of the screenshots I posted.
The game had a parser interface and no mouse support.
It was made in a 'game-making' program (way before AGS existed).
Although it was a complete game in itself, it was released as shareware as a kind of demo for a planned sequel.
I don't think the sequel was ever made.
I played it as a kid in the mid 90s, but it's probably pretty obscure. There's at least one Youtube longplay though.

I'd say it's far from it. I mean it has its flaws, obviously. But it's also absolutely hilarious both intentionally and unintentionally most of the time. And the curiousity factor is also high due to its unique and bizarre nature. So, I'm afraid, I must admit I've rather enjoyed every minute of that game I've played and I still intend to finish it someday.

Yeah, virtually all the backgrounds are stolen from all over the place. All the characters seem to be original though. Also as far as I know the designers of the game claimed that they had no idea this was the case, because whoever agreed to make graphics for them did this without their knowledge.

Although, this is a nice & challenging screen-shot, Cubefiend, we usually have to guess a game in order to post a game - and so on and so forth.

Bedsides, we're the Net generation and have a really low attention span. Multi-threading and having a guessing game exceeding more than one game at a time would instantly fry our brains.

But primarly: Armageddon rarely remembers that he won his turn in this thread :P AND Grim is rarely THAT confident guessing a game! 8-) We simply can't pass on this opportunity! :=


On topic: I'm damn sure, I've never played that one. I'd even go as far as suspecting Armageddon of having drawn that scene, just to put us off the scent... :cool:

Oh... I played Teenagent! I remember when the game was made, I even wrote to Metropolis (the developer) to offer some of my sprites for their future productions (as you do when you're 13 and full of hope).

I attached a floppy disk with the letter, and even got a reply from Adrian Chmielarz!

Therefore, shame on me, for not recognizing Teenagent... It was a really shitty game, though;)

Sure. Once upon a time I attended certian Internet forum. There I met an interesting guy in a top hat and a monocle. I saw him being nice and funny. People seem to like him. But then something strange happened. He was the forum veteran so I totally didn't expect this. I thought he's just a fun guy from the Internet. And then all of a sudden, he showed me this weird screenshot of a game where a creepy guy takes a dump.... I do not know if I ever recover now.

It is a Resident Evil game. But it's definitely not Dark Side Chronicles. Since you're calling this one your 'second' guess:

hmmm...It kind of reminds me of Resident evil 4...but I'm not sure

I'll take it as a guess (even though you didn't explicitly mention :P). It is indeed Resident Evil 4, also known as Biohazard 4. :)

I thought this game was semi-well known, maybe not. OK, hint time:
It's a SNES/Super Famicom game.
It was only released in Japan, but it got a fan translation several years later.
It's a remake of a Famicom game.
It's the 2nd part of a series of games, but is actually a prequel to the original game's story.

Correct, it's Famicom Tantei Club Part II: Ushiro ni Tatsu Shōjo a.k.a. Famicom Detective Club Part II: The Girl who Stands Behind
x1 x2 x3 x4


It's more of a visual novel than a standard puzzle solving adventure game, but I remember the story being really good.

I'm not suggesting you go downloading ROMs and emulators, but if you were to find yourself with a ROM of the game and you happened to download the fan translation patch (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/850/), place it in the same directory as the ROM and give it the same name, you might find yourself playing a fun detective game with a great story and a think verb. Or you could learn Japanese and buy the original cartridge, I guess.

Anyway, Gribbler, your turn.

I do not know the title, I even don't know if it had a title but I had this game when I was a kid! It was this little Russian handheld machine with only one game. I also had the one with the diver and an octopus.

I looked like this and we called it "Wesoły kucharz" which can be roughly translated as "Happy chef"

Well, I did not image search it. :) Cassiebsg didn't exactly specify if image search was used, I only assumed it. I might be wrong of course. If the answer is a result of various questions to good old Uncle google then such answer is perfectly fine in my book.
Title: Re: Name the Game

No Gribbler's right, I used image search... somehow it's a very useful tool and I like it. :p
To my defense, I did not find any of GarageGothic's pics on the search though, another showed up that I thought "that looks like it would fit"... But not my fault the artist did a lousy job on the second pic, since it got me curious as it had nothing to do with the first one (in my eyes anyway)... :D

Oh yeah, and I did say I cheated, right? :) And I took the time to hide it even... :p

Well, if nobody else (who hasn't peeked at the answer) would hazard a guess, I think the turn should just pass to Cassiebsg.

The interesting thing about Michael Crichton's Amazon is that it started out as Congo - The Game but was transplanted to South America because someone else had already bought the adaptation rights. There's a pretty good explanation of the game's development on the site Cassiebsg linked to: http://www.filfre.net/2013/10/from-congo-to-amazon/ - in case anyone is wondering what happened to the amazing artist behind the screenshots, he is now a cinematic artist at Blizzard and worked on Diablo III and Starcraft II.

Well, its a government simulation game released around the ending of the 80's. It's all black and white and menu-driven, but it features one of the first "digital video" graphics. It was used in schools, and the developer distributed for free before it was actually available for download. It's an inspiration for the Games for Change movement, along with Chris Crawford's Balance of Power.

I played SH2 many many times. In my opinion it's the best Silent Hill game ever created. And Pyramid Head was one of the best and original monsters I've seen in a game. Funny how Shinji Mikami is trying the same thing with his Evil Within now but instead of the pyramid monster has a giant safe on his head. :)

Nope and nope.

The game does feature an Arctic base, though. More obscure than The Thing, and substantially more obscure than Assassins Creed, the game is known by two English-language titles (US and EU). I prefer the EU title, myself.

It also features some terrible vehicle sections, as evidenced here:

Time for some hints! This is a PC-only action game, from an Eastern European developer. I have a feeling that the following image will give the game away to those who may have vague recollections of playing it, as it highlights the game's most useful play view:

Okay. The game was released in 2005.

The game is the third in a series, though all ties to the other two games were removed from the English-language version. Which is weird, as the as the first game was released in both the US and EU, and the second game was also available in English (in the EU).

Title: Re: Name the Game

Correct. I suspect some detective work (or a sneaky-googly-imagey!) was required to come up with the answer. I also would have accepted "Aurora Watching", "Gorky 17: Aurora Watching", or "Soldier Elite: Zero Hour" as correct answers.

It's the final game in the "Gorky 17" series ("Gorky 17"/"Odium" being the first, followed by "Gorky 17: Beyond Honor") by Metropolis Software, who are now part of CD Projekt RED, the developers of "The Witcher" games. I played it back when in was first released (as "Aurora Watching"), and, despite some wonky AI and awkward controls, I found it to be a decent stealth game.

That's gotta either be The Great Escape or Where Time Stood Still, both by Denton Designs and released by Ocean Software if my memory is correct.  Judging by what appears to maybe be the door to a building, I'll go for The Great Escape.

I fear I may have gone a step too far into obscurity with this one?!  This game had a one-word title.

Also starting to collect them now seems to be quite pricey, since I'd have to get all the stuff from the UK.

Is the one word title: Terminus: The Prison Planet ? ;-D

GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I know that one!  I had it on the Atari ST.  I'm pretty sure it began with Z... Zaxon?  No I don't think that was it.... nnnngggggggggggggggggg this is going to drive me mad.  Wasn't Zarch, that was the Archimedes title for Virus (well, the other way round actually).

Gah... thank you Anstauber for melting my brain, this is going to drive me mental and I'll remember the name in my sleep only to find someone else got it before I log on again.

Wow I couldn't remember the music but it sure brought back memories when I found it on YouTube.  Needless to say the ST version was pretty painful on the ears... ST chip music tended to be! :-D  This remix is nice -
  (Well thanks Absauber, I've just listened to this twice in a row and about to hit play when it ends again... aurgh!!)

Okay, so... what next?  Okay, here's a game... admittedly not a particularly good one, though not a terrible one either... that I got bundled with my first ST back in the eighties.  Cropped as the game features its name in the side status display!

It is neither of those. I did not expect this game to be so hard to guess. It is a real hassle getting screenshots (long, interactive, unskippable intro, and I keep forgetting to save past it), and that music (at least at the start gets simultaneously repetitive and ingrained in your brain REALLY fast.
But if nobody can guess it in a bit, I guess I'll post another screenshot.

As a small hint, you guys are getting the vibe of the game completely wrong!

Is it actually a beat-em-up (or whatever Street Fighter games are called these days)? It kind of looks like it's pastiching them...

If you have one arena and two fighters (like in Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or Soulcalibur) it's a fighting game. If you go one way and fight baddies attacking you all the time it's a beat-em-up.

Oh, and I don't know this game. Some super early Double Dragon? :)

It's Spell-a-Saurus! Congratulations, Gribbler!

Babar, two loosely connected titles, Spell-a-Saurus being the 'sequel'. You should check it out if you can find it anywhere. It's even rarer than Eco-Saurus. Its gameplay is definitely distinct from Eco-Saurus. Eco-Saurus has you picking up rubbish, this has you spelling words. It's also got PC speaker text-to-speech. Not sure if Eco-Saurus had that.

Your turn, Gribbler.

Iceboty, your turn.

CW, for some odd reason I thought the name of the game was a one word only, and all I could remember of it was that it was French, had "dinosaurs", desert and the sound track, which I loved so much that I actually transfered it to tape so I could listen to it in the walkman/car. :)

Heh... it's the proper kind of football!  (Yes it IS soccer.)

Predates Sensible by 4 years though.

Hint - this one had a famous footballer's name attached to it.

OK, hint time:

Hint 1:
This is the first in a series of 3 educational games, originally released in 1996.
Hint 2:
There's been (recent) talk of bringing this game to tablets.
Hint 3:
The game was developed and published by Brøderbund Software, then later remade and published by The Learning Company.
Hint 4:
There were 12 different puzzles each with 4 difficulties.
Hint 5:
There was a big focus on developing logic and reasoning skills.
Hint 6:
The main characters all look slightly different to each other. Most of the puzzles revolve around this.

It's not cheating. You just followed a hidden-in-image clue Baron left for us. :) Only google image search is considered cheating. BUT it's of course my opinion and if don't agree, well, don't guess.

It's a shame that the game is so underrated, by the way. While not as good as BaK, it's still a very good game on its own.
