Michal Necasek

Michal Necasek, called Mike or Michael by people who can't properly pronounce his first, let alone last name (that includes over 99% of Earth's population) is an experienced gamer and prefers adventure games to other genres. He started playing computer games a lot about 13 years ago when he got his first computer, a Commodore 64.

 

Being a very inquisitive person, he always wanted to know what made PCs tick. Now, after ten years, he has a fairly good idea - good enough to earn him a salary as a software engineer specialized in low level graphics programming. Although he received considerable amount of education, his computer skills are largely self-taught. Born in then Communist Czechoslovakia, Michal is now earning dollars in California and enjoying it.

  • The story of Azrael's Tear revolves around props far from unusual in adventure games: the Holy Grail, the Knights Templar, secret conspiracies to rule the world. These all are almost clichés. But like other good games (Gabriel Knight 3 comes to mind), Azrael's Tear manages to explain them with unexpected twists

  • The game is technically very well made but calling it an adventure game is probably not appropriate due to the lack of puzzles. The game's story is not uninteresting, although it is perhaps a little too complex and it's not easy to keep track of who's who, especially at the beginning.

  • The story of R.M.S. Titanic has inspired writers, filmmakers and other creative types probably ever since that fateful day in April 1912. In Titanic: Adventure Out of Time the unfortunate ship provides backdrop for a drama on even grander scale. In this game it's not the fate of Titanic's passengers that is at stake, it is the fate of entire nations and ultimately the whole world.

  • On the whole, I liked Veil of Darkness. The game is not technically brilliant, but that's not what makes a great game anyway. It is easy to play and more importantly, fun to play.

    Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra is a sequel (not too surprisingly) to Laura Bow: The Colonel's Bequest. In Colonel's Bequest, young Laura Bow solved a string of murders on a remote Southern estate. In Dagger of Amon Ra, Laura has just finished her journalism studies and moved to New York. She's had the good luck of securing a job as a reporter at the New York Daily Register News Tribune, aka the Trib. Her first assignment is to cover a burglary at the famous Leyendecker museum in New York. The missing item is the legendary Dagger of Amon Ra, only recently arrived to New York from Egypt over the protests of certain prominent Egyptians.

  • Let's get one thing straight - Webmaster is not an adventure game. I am not quite certain what kind of game this actually is. Perhaps it's best if I simply explain what Webmaster is about and how it works.

  • Archie Barrel - Case: Hotel Imperial is an adventure game that most of our readers are very unlikely to play. The reason is quite simple - this is a Russian game and only a version with Russian text and voiceovers appears to be available.

  • There is one thing that Activision's adventure game Sacred Ground absoultely, positively isn't: unique. In fact it looks and feels a lot like a twin sibling of its predecessor in the Santa Fe Mysteries mini series, Elk Moon Murder - which it in a way is. These two games are so similar that it's rather hard to tell them apart at first sight. But for your exclusive benefit I'll attempt to do just that.
