The first 100% QuickBasic
game Review magazine
(12/13/99) Developers Ribbonsoft and
BiH1 are building two new puzzle games. You can help them by downloading
these titles below and looking for any bugs.
QB Puzzle Games appear to be on a rise
in QB, and two leaders interested in leading the way are developers Ribbonsoft
and BiH1, both of which have two QB Puzzle/Adventure games that
are under construction. One puzzle game brings LucasArts fans close to
home, while the other is a classic text Puzzle/Adventure with graphics
a la Zork.
While both of these projects show great
promise, both development teams are currently searching for some rowdy
QB gamers to try out their latest QB demos, to see if these Puzzle Games
are heading on the right track. Interested in seeing if these early versions
have any glitches? Can you help your fellow man discover if these games
have gaming potential? The only way to help out and have a little fun along
the way is to try out one of these demos.
|The first game (shown at right) is called
The Void. Right now you can download the first episode (this means this
game is playable and beatable!) The Void utilizes an overhead view like
an RPG, but the game is a lot more like King's Quest, Curse of Monkey Island,
and puzzle games of that nature. You get to pick up items and use them
through a cleverly-situated mouse/keyboard interface. There are also music
options that have yet to be experimented. If you've been waiting for one
of those item-oriented puzzle games be sure to this game a try.

If you find any bugs while playing The
Void, you can reach Ribbonsoft at email@example.com

|On the other hand, if you're into a puzzle
game that is in the tradition of Zork, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
and Shadowgate, then you might want to try "bug finding" for SmartGuy,
the first puzzle type game by BiH1. Smartguy has graphics mixed with a
keyboard interface that lets gamers type down what they want to do. It's
a pretty small demo right now but it's a real treat to try a game like
