Dun Darach is the 1985 sequel (actually prequel) to Tir Na Nog, written by Greg Follis and Roy Carter and again featuring the expressive Cuchulainn – the long-haired man who is not afraid to walk around with his shirt off…
The sequel to the quirky Amiga adventure Heimdall, Heimdall 2: Into the Hall of Worlds was developed by The 8th Day and published by Core Design in 1994. In my opinion: it is more enjoyable than the first game, although not without its faults.
Portal is a legendary first-person puzzle/gravity game developed and published by Valve in 2007.
I say “gravity game” because Portal combines basic physics (acceleration, velocity, gravity, and inertia), with the ability to open up entry and exit portals, to create a game so beautifully simple-yet-complex that it is almost beyond belief…
Valve really outdid themselves with Portal 2. Following on from a game as brilliant as Portal, they knew it had to be good. And it is better than good. Portal 2 is incredible.
When you think you’re nearing the end of the game it opens up to be something else, and it does that a number of times. The variety and quality is unparalleled. The scale and 3D modelling of the props and environments are mind-blowing, and the thrills, spills, and laughs come thick and fast.
Portal 2 does give you some breathing space, though. And some time to take in the setting.
One of the best games ever made. Non-violent (well, kind of). Funny and clever and taxing.
A modern gaming masterpiece!
