Games you never understood to play (the right way)
 
Yeah, as the thread title says. :)

As an example, i played Vamires Empire (http://hol.abime.net/1556)
always the wrong way. Mirrors? Light? Huh? I was just wandering around, avoiding enemies without any clue about playing it the proper way.

Another one is Balance of Power (http://hol.abime.net/18).
Cool, politics, cool economy. War! War! Decisions? Yes, Decisions!
Uh, wrong decision? Game over.

No that I remember. Some guy chases me, no buttons or controls do anything, he catches me, then kills me, then the game is over :)

I got bored after the nth time of trying.

Vermeer
I was too young to understand this game but I liked graphics.

Mega Lo Mania
Cool intro but what should I do? Next game please.

No manual for my *cough* backup copy back in the day, but the game drew me in real fast. So glad I invested two hours in finding out how to play it :)

Lords of Chaos

Loved chaos on the spectrum (and still play it from time to time) but just couldnt get into this at all

Falcon Flight 28 April 2010 13:28

Captain Blood seriously i'm 13 playing this late into the nights landing on all these strange planets talking to aliens with this indecipherable hieroglyphic interface and they talk back in that.
So i just went around nuking planets. when i got sick of the pretty colours of "destroy planet activated" i just loaded the game to listen to J. Michel Jarre's title track.

armour-geddon loved the game the gfx mood theme everything. wtf do you do? i still dont know maybe i should give it another try.

i agree with mega lo mania i worked out populous and powermonger this game stumped me so i rage quit.

Liberation the sequel to Captive it completely lost me.

Fragger 28 April 2010 14:18

Thanks for your answers... very interesting stories and some unknown games for me. :)

You are right with Mega Lo Mania ... I understood what to do, but thats all. ;)

Another game: Netherworld (http://hol.abime.net/954)
Yes, ok, and now? Very hard to understand.. one of the first games, i´ve played on the Miggy...

Same here. Got shot down a couple of times trying to get anywhere, that was basically it :) Had the same problem with Carrier Command.

Yes, fun with launching different machines but that's all.

I completed it as well, exploted a bit of a bug in i think the final level so instead of battling my way through all the bad guys just shot the bloke from miles away when he stood next to the wall.

There's a rumour going round that some people actually know the purpose of "Weird Dreams"...

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Dungeon's Lair" (etc.) : 15' loading, then 10" game...
