- Sinbad and the throne of the falcon -

Sinbad the sailer who hasn't heard of him? There have been plenty of movies made about the adventures of Sinbad sailing the seven seas. Sinbad and the throne of the falcon takes you on a quest to help princess Sylphani to find a way to to defeat the black prince. Along the way you will have to sail many seas, visit many lands and ofcourse tackle the many dangers that will stop you from completing your quest and you must do this before time runs out.

Sinbad is a really nontypical Cinemaware game, I actually hadn't played it until now but it's not up to the standards of their other games. Most of the game is played by moving around the seas, you can do this by simply selecting a destination and you will be moved there. Once you get to a location you might find a character you can talk with and the conversations are carried out by selecting from a multiple choice menu, choose the correct one and you might get some usefull information. Other times when you reach a destination you will encounter a nasty beast that you have to take care of or some other event like an earthquake that will lead to a minigame. There are lots of minigames but many of them are really small, like hitting a bird with your bow and arrow or using a slingshot to take out a cyclops. The minigames often don't add much to the game and are therefor a bit redundant. The graphics are alright but certainly not compareable to other cinemaware games, most of the game is seen from behind Sinbad as you travel around so be prepared to see a lot of his back.

Sinbad is a rather strange game, the adventuring parts only serve to hold together the minigames which by themselves aren't really worth much and even strung together are only mediocre at best. This is one of the early releases from Cinemaware but the quality is lacking so I can't really recommended it.

Overal rating: 4/10

Erde Kaiser

This game was released for several different systems here are some notes:
Apple Released in 1988.
Game has been tested but not completed with the ActiveGSapp R4.
This has the best graphics but only by a small amount.
Amiga Released in 1987.
Game has been tested but not completed with winUAE v0.9.91.
This version looks so INCREDIBLY UTTERLY bad that I rechecked a couple of times that this actually came from an actual company and not some fan who made it at home. It's not like the others at all and you should check out this version just to see how bad it really is.
Atari ST Released in 1988.
This is quite good and graphically on par with the Apple version, it seems to have some extra screens and graphics not seen in the other versions.
C64 Released in 1987.
Game has been tested but not completed with CCS64 v2.0 win.
Compareable to the DOS version but with some toned down graphics.
DOS Released in 1988.
Game has been tested but not completed on a DOS PC.
Many of the subgames run way to fast on anything faster than a 386 so unless you've got a seriously slow pc you won't be able to play it.
