[Xmas countdown] Day 3: time to eat some delicious cholocates

December 3, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image As promised, here is our third gift of the Advent Calendar. This time, this is a rare game by AVNI Inc and Atari that Marcer found in his basket. It's named Chocolate Factory and if you think the goal is to prepare chocolate and manage a factory... you're totally right!

The intro was coded by our friend Jace of ST Knights in 2005, while Evil of DHS made the demosystem. Fonts were drawn by Dieu of HMD and guess what? The great new logo was created by STS of Elite (yes, ST Survivor is a member of the team!).

Enjoy and don't forget to come back tomorrow to collect another pure gem before christmas.

Download Chocolate Factory.

[Xmas countdown] Day 2: Dominion is yours

December 2, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image Second day, second game. This time, Elite and Atari Legend bring you Dominion, an unfinished game by Core Design.

Yes, the company behind famous hits such as Car-Vup, Rick Dangerous and Switchblade planned to release a tetris-like game in 1992. But for an unknown reason, it was never published.

Fortunately, a prototype was done. Although it lacks music, the game is fully playable. That's the version we offer to download today. Last but not least: if you like (or hate?) the game, don't hesitate to leave a comment on the game details page or on our Facebook page. See you tomorrow for another gift.

Download Dominion by Core Design.

Random review

This is a game with a high nostalgic value, but if you're after a good WWII simulation I would rather recommend "Their Finest Hour" instead, it's way better! Don't get me wrong, "Battlehawks 1942" is a good game, but seriously dated.
