Ludic: Break the Loop

(Osmobit Games, 2019)

Professor Ludic has developed a program on his CPC464 in an attempt to stop artificial intelligence (AI) from enslaving humanity – but something went wrong and he has inadvertently been transported to another world. Now he must outwit the AI and escape. On each of the 16 levels, you must collect as many qubits as you can. This is made more difficult by the fact that once you move in any direction, you will keep moving until you hit an obstacle, although you can use qubits to halt your movement. Some levels also feature multiple characters that you can switch between, and you will need to use them to solve the level. This puzzle game finished second in the 2019 #CPCRetroDev Game Creation Contest. It’s well presented – I particularly like the banter between Professor Ludic and the AI – but I found it to be a bit too challenging for my liking.

The Lurking Horror

(Infocom, 1987)

You’ve come to the computer centre at GUE Tech and are in the terminal room, with only a hacker for company, trying to get your essay finished for tomorrow morning. There’s a huge blizzard outside and you’re stuck here for the night, but something much more sinister is afoot... This was one of the last of Infocom’s text adventures to be released for the CPC, and I reckon it’s their best one. The text descriptions really create a tense and frightening atmosphere as you skulk around the corridors of GUE Tech, and the characters that you will meet are rather scary as well, such as the ghoulish caretaker and the professor of alchemy. This isn’t just my favourite Infocom game; it’s one of my favourite text adventures of all time.
