Title:Q-MANCHE Final ReleaseGenre:Action
Developer:Dieter MarfurtYear:2000
Description:A helicopter flight simulation. Sorta. While the 3D engine that the game uses is great (I'm not familiar with the method, but it's similar if not the same to the one used in Comanche series), this is a rather poor game. All you need to do in Q-MANCHE is to hunt down the three persons on the map and kill them. They are nothing but slug looking lines. While this is a painfully easy game, it's also terribly short. The game offers nothing more. Nevertheless, the 3D engine is something really worth being checked. Thus the score 5.

Title:QB DefenderGenre:Action
Developer:Tim TrumanYear:1997
Description:A poor but playable side-view space shooter. It features cool Adlib (Sound Blaster compatible) sound effects. The graphics are very simple (triangles and rectangles) and crude. The game lacks a lot of polish. The keyboard handler is horrible since the game is meant to be played with a joystick. Who keeps a joystick nowadays?

Title:QB InvadersGenre:Action
Developer:Tim TrumanYear:1997
Description:A very nice Invaders clone, but without anything new brought into the original concept. Ok graphics and sound effects. The annoying thing is that you have to change the code in order to change some parameters in the game, like difficulty or the graphics. Very annoying and I'm lowering the score because of that.

Title:QB MATRIXGenre:Puzzle

Title:QB RoidsGenre:Action
Developer:Tim TrumanYear:1996
Description:An ok Asteroids remake. I found it boring since there are no powerups and more than two types of obstacles. Also, like in QB Invaders, you can change the game parameters only in the source code. Unimpressive if not poor graphics.

Title:QB SkiGenre:Action
Developer:Alex Knight-PercivalYear:1999
Description:An average skiing game with average graphics and good gameplay. 10 courses. The problem with this game is the lack of filled high scores so you can't know how good your results really are. Also, there is no any kind of competition mode where opponentsí results would be generated and you would have some times to beat. This game comes down to few people trying to beat each otherís course records. I donít see how can anyone enjoy in this game alone. Pity these needed features for a game of this type were missed, because the gameplay is very good.

Title:QB-BallGenre:Action
Developer:Murat ElicYear:2003
Description:A poor Arkanoid clone with a highly doubtful gameplay (paddle moves too slow compared to the ball). The graphics are ok, but the problem of the gameplay remains.

Title:Qb-Wormy ver.2Genre:Action
Developer:Jessac Mathias BairdYear:2000
Description:One of the better QBasic Snake/Nibbles games. The player controls a worm and has to eat all the dots on the screen, while not hitting the wall or your tail. As the snake eats, it grows. 15 levels and the player can start from any of them. This ruins the challenge a bit. The game also features Sound Blaster music and sound effects.

Title:QBasic Tank CommanderGenre:Action
Developer:Matthew River KnightYear:1999
Description:A very poor two players action game where the goal is to blow up the opponent's tank. The game can be played only against another human opponent, the movement is stupid (only horizontal and vertical direction is possible) and the round plays until one tank is destroyed (takes only one hit). No collision with the objects in the arena, tanks simply run everything down.

Title:QBasic TetrisGenre:Puzzle
Developer:Dominik KasparYear:1998
Description:A nice Tetris clone with not so colorful graphics but well designed. It features nice menus, instructions and a lot of options. In QBasic Tetris you can choose the starting speed of the game, complexity of the falling shapes and few more interesting parameters. If you choose to download QBasic Tetris, don't expect nice graphics, but a very well executed Tetris game.

Title:QBasic: The RPGGenre:RPG
Developer:Matthew River KnightYear:2000
Description:A joke RPG which is, being a joke game, very poor and very short. ASCII graphics. I must admit, the game is quite funny, but possesses no real play value. Worth being downloaded only because of the jokes.

Title:QMineGenre:Puzzle
Developer:Ilmari VacklinYear:1998
Description:Another Minesweeper clone. This one features a bit more snappy graphics compared with the other QBasic Minesweeper games. In QMine you can change height and width of the grid and number of mines. One of the better QBasic Minesweeper clones, but I just can't give more than 4 to such a simple game.

Title:QnoidGenre:Action
Developer:Robert Tanniru & Scott VangilderYear:2002
Description:An average Arkanoid clone. Qnoid is made completely in QBasic without any external graphics and in hi-res (640*350). The graphics are boring and the gameplay is below average since the keyboard control is based on the INKEY$ statement (the paddle moves too clumsy). It is a nicely designed game (many powerups), but without a slowdown utility it's unplayable (CPU Grabber helps).

Title:QpacmanGenre:Action
Developer:DessySoftYear:1997
Description:A poor pacman game with poor graphics. It's playable but boring and features doubtful code (game tends to freeze for few seconds). Tile by tile movement. Qpacman has an interesting feature not common in pacman games, teleport diamonds.

Title:QTetrisGenre:Puzzle
Developer:Belly Laugh SoftwareYear:1997
Description:An interesting ASCII Tetris game featuring some strange rules I didn't like. The game comes with few bugs, but at least there are some high scores to beat. A well designed game if we ignore the stupid way itís packed. The package includes some sort of piece set editor. Only for Tetris mongers.

Title:QuestGenre:RPG
Developer:Johnny IngersollYear:1998
Description:A poor text-based RPG. While the movement and the interface are very nice, this is one of those games that requires too much patience (money gathering and leveling up). Some really high prices for certain items in the game make it unreasonably difficult. The game is also ruined with several stupid characters, like Mariah Carey (Iím serious) or the guy who lost his golden watch who are so out of place (the game is placed in a fantasy worlds with goblins and similar). And then there are the weapons like laser guns and TNT together with swords. A quite long game, but the flaws prevail. Turn-based battle system.

Title:QuestGenre:RPG
Developer:UnknownYear:1997
Description:A solid and quite interesting RPG. The graphics are average but quite static. Tile by tile movement and turn-based battles. Ok story. A lot of searching for various objects. The world is medium sized and the gameplay is good. What annoys a bit is the lack of proper interaction with the characters where they come down to being nothing but sources of information (clues). Still, this is a well designed game and it looks quite different from other QBasic RPGs. PC Speaker sound effects.
