I usually try to keep the promotion of my personal additions to the site to a minimum (apart from interviews and such). After all, this site is all about its users and their contributions should take priority.

But when I write a lengthy review of the one game that almost singlehandedly got me into the adventuring business, I get all misty-eyed and I feel that it warrants a special mention. Yes, dear readers, Eureka! is very near and dear to my heart - warts and all. The game was released with much hullabaloo back in 1984 because of a much-coveted £25,000 prize. The prize is long gone, but judged on its own merits I think the game holds up fairly well, if you can accept its (considerable) technical shortcomings.

Notes

Level 9's first game, not written in A-code.
According to Pete Austin, this was "like Valhalla but with no graphics" - so it may have been more of a RPG than a fullblown adventure game.
