Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Sunday 14 September 2014
The USS Blackhawk is a submarine where you’ll spend most of your time in Codename Iceman (1989). It’s a weird game, I don’t know what Sierra was aiming for. Realism? Using keys, unlocking things, opening doors, even closing doors, chests, drawers - fine. But the developers took it to an extremely boring extreme: walk 3 screens to the left, open door, walk to girl, talk to girl, get key, walk to door, open door, walk 3 screens to the right, use key on door, open door, do whatever it is you came in for, and then do everything in reverse because it is vital that you give the key back to the girl. If you don’t the game punishes you.
So don’t forget to salute the flag!
PS: I once got in trouble in Greece when I took pics of a submarine in a harbor. Yeah, that was stupid of me.
