Syndicate – Action/strategy classic by Bullfrog gets a DarkwyndPT review
Master of Magic – A classic 4x strategy game by Microprose reviewed by DarkwyndPT
Duke Nukem – Platformer classic reviewed by DarkwyndPT
I think reviewing the first titles of popular gaming franchises that still continue to nowadays has become sort of a running theme around here, hasn’t it? Then again, a lot of popular gaming characters have humble beginnings, like probably the manliest character in video-game history having started in a shareware […]
Dungeon Hack – A classic Dungeon Crawler reviewed by DarkwyndPT!
Confession time: I never really got into tabletop RPG. I’m not saying it’s bad or something. I’m simply stating that I’ve never had the patience for it. However, I do love RPG videogames, whether they’re western computer style or eastern console style. And my introduction to computer RPGs was also […]
Theme Park – One of the best theme park strategy games gets a DarkwyndPT review!
Now, we’re just upping the ante, aren’t we? Still, it’s impossible to make a Bullfrog retrospective without mentioning another critical and commercial successful title, which is perhaps their most colourful game that also begun its own influential series. I’m talking about Theme Park. Theme Park is a managerial strategy game […]
King’s Quest – The first graphic adventure ever made for the PC and Sierra’s first big hit reviewed!
Populous – A brilliant Strategy game reviewed by DarkwyndPT
Well, it isn’t too hard to figure out which Bullfrog game I’ll start reviewing for this retrospective. And it’s only fair that I start with Bullfrog’s first and possibly biggest success ever: Populous. Populous is a managerial/strategy game developed by Bullfrog and published by Electronic Arts. It was originally released […]

Manhunter: New York – A classic Adventure game reviewed by DarkwyndPT
For those who had the privilege to experience videogames during the 80s and 90s (like yours truly), you probably noticed that the period between the late 80s and early 90s was probably the most prolific in terms of novelties. Basically, developers back then (but especially during that specific period) threw […]
Blackthorne – DarkwyndPT takes a look at a very good classic action game!
Well, like I promised last time, today’s review is from a GOOD action PC game and it’s also one of the first games produced by a famous game developer. I’m talking about Blackthorne. Blackthorne (AKA Blackhawk in Europe) is an action/platform game developed by Blizzard and published by Interplay. It […]
