Core War    Kevin A. Bjorke,  1984
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot unnecessary ]
If you're interested in programming, you may want to take a look at Core War. In this game, you write a program which then duels against programs written by other people. It's sort of like programming a robot which then battles with other robots to see which one is best. The programming language is based on assembly, which is definitely not easy to learn! Overall, it's not for novices!

Drum Blaster    Epic Megagames,  1992
Rating: 2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Not really a game, more of a musical toy ... Drum Blaster is a virtual drum kit, where you can make simple songs by hitting different keys on your keyboard. Sounds range from different bassdrums and snares, to hihats, squeals, toms, etc. While unlikely to hold your interest for very long (even with included musical accompaniments) it might be a fun program for young children to play with.

Eliza    Michael Day,  1988
Rating: 2 stars  Public Domain  [ Screenshot ]
Eliza was an early attempt at computer AI. The idea was that it would be something like a computer therapist, where you would enter your problems and it would reply with further probing questions to help you with your problems. In practice, due to the simplistic algorithms used, it was most often a thoroughly frustrating experience. (See the screenshot for an example.) This thing is probably good for a laugh and nothing more ... it's all text. ;) As the author says, "Eliza can either cure your psychosis or generate new ones depending on how you take it."

Goferpop    Joseph Parnau,  1991
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Goferpop (aka "Gofer Pop", "Gopherpop" or "Gopher Pop") is a rather stupid and extremely simplistic game where the object is to shoot gophers with your gun as they pop their heads out of the ground. Slightly gory, and extremely simple in every way, this probably won't hold your interest for long, but I remember playing it many years ago so I figured I'd include it on the site. (Plus, it's amazing how far someone's little 50k game project made in BASIC can travel around the world, and still be played 15 years after it was created!)

Horrorscopes    Colin Gagnon,  1995
Rating: 2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
This isn't really a game ... and it isn't really a horoscope program, either. It simply predicts ridiculous events that "will" happen based on your astrological sign. A neat toy, with poor graphics; (un)fortunately, none of these have come true for me ... yet.

Koolah    Marko Teittinen,  1991
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
I think this game is supposed to be relaxing ... but to me, IT ISN'T!!! Like those wooden puzzles, you have to roll your ball around the maps to the exit, trying to avoid the holes. It's harder than it sounds. Average graphics and PC speaker effects. (Note: Once in awhile I seemed to have keyboard trouble with this game ... I have no idea what the problem was.)

Lamers    Cocktail,  1992
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Ever played Lemmings? If you have, there have probably been times when (against your best intentions) you slaughted all of the little green-haired guys out of frustration. Well, that's entirely the point of this Lemmings parody game ... to slaughter the "Lamers" as quickly as possible. Not a lot of replayabilty here ... but it might be kinda entertaining if you've played Lemmings before.

Letter Targets    Justin Somerton,  2004
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
This text-based game plays the same as the classic "Hangman" word game. The computer randomly selects a word, and you guess it by typing in letters. Try to guess it before you run out of chances. No fancy graphics or sounds here, but it could be fun in short doses.

robotfindskitten    Leonard Richardson,  1997
Rating: 2 stars  GPL  [ Screenshot ]
robotfindskitten is a thrilling journey into the life of a robotic kitten-finder. Actually it's a weird ASCII graphics thing. You play the role of a robot, and the goal is to touch various ambiguous objects (ASCII characters) until you find the one that has been designated the "kitten" for that particular level. It's not exactly deep ... more of a toy than a game. But it's oddly charming and has been ported to dozens of differnet operating systems.

Scripture Quest    Philip P. Kapusta,  1994
Rating: 3 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Scripture Quest is a game that in actuality involves no questing. It's a Bible quiz game that contains over 1,600 multiple choice questions about history's most influential text. You can choose questions from the Old Testament, New Testament, or both, and include 1-9 players taking turns on the keyboard. The presentation is quite basic (text-mode with no graphics) but it does present some interesting questions. The questions vary in difficulty from easy to obscure and unfortunately there's no difficulty selection. Other than that, it's a solid game/quiz program.

Shooting Gallery    Nels Anderson,  1995
Rating: 4 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
This is a fun game! Like it's name implies, it's a shooting gallery, where you have to shoot the bottles, spinners, coffee mugs, etc. as they go by. There are also other varients you can play, like skeet shooting and "quick draw" challenges. Clean, fast EGA graphics look good, too. There seems to be a real incentive here to try to beat your own high scores (or other's high scores)!

UFO    Ed T. Toton III,  1994
Rating: 4 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Very similar to the card game UNO. You can play against the computer (an alien, hence the name "UFO") or against a second player. Good VGA graphics and SB sound effects (although I wasn't able to get the SB sounds working on my machine) liven up the gameplay. Overall the game is quite enjoyable and easy to play.

Vegas Slots    Jeffery Blanchard,  1995
Rating: 3 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
I'm not sure why anyone would want to play a computer slot machine game for any length of time ... but here's one of the best, for those that do. It doesn't depress you, since it pays off relatively often (unlike a real slot machine) and there are also different "themes" (slot machines) to choose from. (Note: This is just for fun, you of course cannot win any real money from playing this game!)
