Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Wednesday 27 November 2013
I’ve been getting slammed with advertisements for Black Friday this week which is why I have a mini-theme going along with that about games that are advertisements as well. The Germans seem to have made a bunch of adventure games in that vein in the 90s and this next game is just one of many. So here we are at day 3 with The Golden Mane of Samson (1994), which is a promotional game for the Samson Tobacco company.
I don’t speak German and I’ve only played the demo, so I can’t really tell you anything about its story, but the game is made with an old school, 1st person, Doom-style engine with direct control in which you wander around an underground temple/labyrinth finding treasure and solving puzzles while trying not to step on any scorpions (they don’t move so it’s pretty easy) and avoiding the occasional trap.
Other than an annoying pinball game you have to play a bunch of times to get keys to open a door, I didn’t think it was that bad really.
Kinda looks like a Cryo game, imo.
