Dune - Adventure Walkthrough Story

1. About the game.
Dune 1 PC video game from 1992Dune video game is released in 1992 for 16 bit personal computers. It is a role playing game involving adventure with economic and military strategy and loosely following the story of the novel with the same name, written by Frank Herbert. The isometric graphic, excellent for its time, now look like squares, but the interesting story, fast installation and the game play, may quickly override this fact. Now the game is available free everywhere even playing in a browser. There are some dune versions out there, that are bugged, so here is a good one: Download. The download versions can be played directly in Windows, but the old classic way with the DOS Box, give us the control of the screen dimensions. Since 1995(20 years now), I have played this games a couple of times and it never bores me. I'll now write the adventure picture story, escorting Paul Atreides in the desert, search for the fremen and the hidden water, oppose the Harkonnen once more and try to make the planet a paradise. I'll write down all the fremen sitech that I can find, because some of them are well hidden and with no obvious directions how to find them. If you want to see all sietch locations, search this blog by pressing ctrl+f and enter "Sietch:"(with the two points in the small text field - down left in Mozilla - up right in Chrome, then press the small arrows near the text fields to loop all the fremen homes.

Civilization 1 - Adventure Walkthrough Story

1. About the game.
Civilization 1 menu
Sid Meier Civilization 1 is released in 1991 for 16 bit personal computers. It is a turn based strategy game with 2d graphic, that in our days look like big ugly squares. Yet this game is very playable and more interesting than many games released between 2010 and 2015. It is light and the only thing that need is a DOS emulator (like DOS Box) to rum on any computer. Civilization has been called one of the most important strategy games of all time. Back in 90s, when the widest spread games were arcades like packman and space invaders, my brother came at home, throw a diskette and said: "Play this, it's cool". I eagerly launched the game, and was very disappointed to see no moving objects to catch, climb or fire upon. I was cycling around a small island with one militia unit and didn't know know what to do. Then I begun to reed and discover technologies and a new amazing world was revealed to me! In the next years, Civilization evolved, but I never stopped playing Civ 1 occasionally, because I can play it anywhere, even at work.
In short, it is about taking the role of the ruler of a civilization and attempts to build an empire in competition with other rival civilizations. In long, the story begins in a lovely calm day about 6000 years ago.
