Game Covers - Fairlight (Commodore 64)

Fairlight:  The Light Revealed - a software legend so far ahead of its time that it remains even now the classic 3D arcade adventure!

You are Isvar - chosen by Segar the Immortal to seek out the magical Book of Light and banish darkness from the decaying land of Fairlight!

When first released Fairlight won just about every magazine accolade going...
Fairlight uses the "3D Worldmaker Technique" to create a magical world of such detail that individual objects possess "real world" attributes such as weight and momentum, and can be moved, carried, and used.  You, as Isvat, can truly interact with this environment in exploring the superbly depicted scenes.  You have five "pockets" in which to carry objects; you can jump and fight.  But you'll need to use all these abilities, and, above all, your wits to overcome the many obstacles and puzzles that beset you in your quest for The Book of Light!

Game Covers - S.O.S. (Commodore 64)

Despite getting not-so-great reviews in the computer magazines of the time, I thoroughly enjoyed this fun little isometric 3D adventure, although it is highly recommended to turn the sound off as it has one of the most annoying songs in a computer game playing throughout.

"One way to lose a good droid is to send it out to do something it isn't programmed for.  Biomech 1 (Sydney to his friends) is marooned in a very weird place all because his creator, the eccentric Foley, has a terrible memory.  If Sydney can't get back intact, Foley's boss will remove his kneecaps (Foleys not Sydneys that is).  Tell Syd how to get home in this 3D arcade adventure and save the taxpayer one billion dollars in the bargain!  3D ARCADE ADVENTURE FROM GEOFF FOLEY.

Wow, what an exciting back story!  Try it...  The game isn't bad at all, and was a bargain back in the day.

Interesting bit of useless information - The game was originally called "The Game With No Name"

S.O.S. - The Inlay
