A science-fiction thriller set in a bleak post-apocalyptic vision of the future, Beneath a Steel Sky revolves around "Union City", where selfishness, rivalry, and corruption by its citizens seems to be all too common, those who can afford it live underground, away from the pollution and social problems which are plaguing the city.

You take on the role of Robert Foster, an outcast of sorts from the city since a boy who was raised in a remote environment outside of Union City simply termed "the gap". Robert's mother took him away from Union City as a child on their way to "Hobart" but the helicopter crashed on its way, unfortunately Robert's mother dies, but he survives and is left to be raised by a local tribe from the gap.

Years later, Union City security drops by and abducts Robert, killing his tribe in the process; upon reaching the city the helicopter taking him there crashes with him escaping, high upon a tower block in the middle of the city he sets out to discover the truth about his past, and to seek vengeance for the killing of his tribe.

Flight of the Amazon Queen is a 2D point-and-click adventure game set in the 1940s, originally published for DOS and the Amiga.

You assume the role of Joe King, a pilot for hire who is given the job of flying Faye Russell (a famous movie star) into the Amazon jungle for a photo shoot. Of course, things never go according to plans. After an unfortunate turn of events they find themselves stranded in the heart of the Amazon jungle, where Joe will embark on a quest to rescue a kidnapped princess and in the process, discover the true sinister intentions of a suspiciously located Lederhosen company. In a rich 2D environment, Joe will cross paths with a variety of unlikely jungle inhabitants including, but not limited to, a tribe of Amazon women and 6-foot-tall pygmies.

Lure of the Temptress was Revolution's very first adventure game and work began on it in 1989, even before Revolution's inception as an actual games development company.

You are Diermot, an unwilling hero who'd prefer a quiet life, and are, to all intents and purposes, a good man. After decades of unrest the King has united the warring factions in his kingdom and all his lands are at peace, except a remote region around a town called Turnvale. A revolt has recently taken place in Turnvale, a revolt orchestrated by an apprentice sorceress called Selena, the titular temptress. The king calls together his finest horsemen and heads off (with you in tow) to Turnvale just to witness how hellish mercenary monsters called Skorl are invading the town.

The king's men are defeated, the king is killed and you fall of your horse and bang your head heavily on the ground. You have been unconscious for a while when you realize that you are in a dingy cell guarded by a not so friendly Skorl. Maybe it would be an idea to try and escape...

NetHack is a wonderfully silly, yet quite addictive, Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure game. You play a character from one of many classes (such as wizard, ranger, or tourist), fighting your way down to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor (try saying THAT one backwards!) for your god. On the way, you might encounter a quantum mechanic or two, or perhaps King Arthur, or - if you're REALLY lucky - the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.

You should install a front-end for NetHack if you wish to play the game. Each of them includes the original non-graphical version, and they can all be installed at the same time:

  • nethack-console: no graphics, just plain NetHack;
  • nethack-x11 : original X11/Athena-based graphical version;
  • nethack-lisp : Lisp window version.

This package provides the plain console version of NetHack.
