Crap Games Compo – game reviews
by CreaMD of Dmagic
Crap games, Seuck games and game-demoparts production has quite a long tradition eventhough it seriously started to flourish in nineties when all the big players left the c64 business. I would like to stress the fact that some of the following games are serious fun and worth checking while others are more jokes than real games. Some of the reviews are boasting a lot about the game qualities – some don't. Find for yourself.
And remember, test the games at your own risk. Check the site for latest info and results: http://www.cgc.cosine.org.uk/.

When Two Worms War (2worms war)
This two player game is a born multiplayer hit. The goal is to eat the golden pill (or what is it) sooner than the opponent. One of the few games actually having some music. Quite a good one.
When Two Worms War
Advanced Action Movie Simulator (AAMS)
AAMS by Cadaver rocks! It's probably the best game of the whole collection. It has a perfect story and you'll for sure have a lot of fun (advanced players only 5–10 minutes, but still worth try ;). Don't miss the later scenes of this superior action game! It also features absolutely perfectly fitting action soundtrack composed by the author himself..
AAMS – The Car Chase
AAMS – John Woo stuff
This is a detective text adventure placed in the most classical setting – mansion. Closed circle of potential victims and the murderer waiting for his (her) chance. A tough one!!!
Dackel Klatch (dackel klatch)
This game by Chris Schiller was actually made in 1993. It seems that the goal is to splat the dog with the hand, but hey I couldn't move the hand. Probably it's a mouse game.
Diamond Hunters (diamond hunter)
Another game dated 1993 by someone called Zalor of CS. It's a 2-player and I expect it could be fun to play in two players. The time will show.
Dots by The New Dimension (Richard Bayliss). In this game you control the white dot and the goal is to stay away, as long as possible, from the other moving dot's. When the white dot crashes with any other dot the game ends. Another party killer ;-).
Sadomasochism production. Beware!!!
Manky Maze (mankymaze)
This game will turn you insane, believe me! And yes it's maybe because it's just another Sadomasochism production.
Masterbagels 2001 (masterbagels2001)
Hardcore Logic game with elaborate and detailed instructions.
Space Invadarz on Vacation (space inv o. v.)
If I wanted to sell this game I would say: „almost perfect Space Invaders clone by The New Dimension“. With a looong stress on the word almost. Turn up the volume and prepare for the minimalistic soundtrack ;).
Space Inavadarz on Vacation
The Weakest Link (the weakest link)
A very hard quiz game with a nice (ripped) music and wired gfx.
The Weakest Link
The Ultimate Worm Game (the wormgame)
I still don't know if this game works as I couldn't control it at all. But it seems you have to move from side to side of the screen and catch goods while avoiding some not digestable stuff. Nice music from Robocop3 game.
The Ultimate Worm Game
By Backward Engineering. A really good choice of music.
Holmes (holmes_1.d64, holmes_2.d64)
And last but not least a 2 disk text adventure game by Inform! Be patient, loading takes ages and also the commands execution is very slow as in all Infocom ups, I mean Inform, stuff.
