Awesome Classic Games Part 1

Taking a break from the soundtracks, I'd like to focus on some games, particularly video games from the 80s-90s that consumed most of my childhood's time.
Part 1 is all about point and click adventures!


Monkey Island



I just love these games. The first two were games we had on our old computer, so naturally I played them a lot. When the special editions were released for iPhone, I couldn't resist getting them and now Le Chuck's revenge is currently taking up the majority of my spare time.
The revamped graphics and voices are an excellent way to revisit the series and I still find myself chuckling at the multitudes of one-liners ("You fight like a dairy farmer! How appropriate, you fight like a cow.") If you've never played these games, do yourself a favour and get them ASAP!

Day of the Tentacle




A similar point and click game like Monkey island, Day of the Tentacle introduces many comical characters, included the greatest villain of all time: Purple Tentacle.
The story will lead you on many humorous adventures that never fail to entertain. Another must play!

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis




Another point and click that I spent countless hours on. This game has a slightly more serious story than the previous two, yet contains just as much entertainment.
