|Spice Trade takes place in Baghdad (and later in the game in other places in europe and the middle east) in the 12th century. The main character is Abu Al-Qazzaz, a poor guy who has inherited some land and a house. With that, you must try to build up your spice trading business.
This game is not for the impatient. For almost every action you do in the game, you must wait about 10 seconds, while a small animation and a text tells you what you’re currently doing. It doesn’t really look like the waiting is due to load time either, so I don’t really see why the programmers included such long waiting time in the game.
Once you get into it, though (if you are patient enough to play it for long enough to get into it), it is a very intresting game. I don’t think I’ve seen a game before where you play a Muslim and the Christians are the “evil” ones. The trading is also quite intresting, once you get into it, and the roleplaying parts of the game spices up the gameplay.
Unfortunately, the game seems a bit unfinished. You’ll find a lot of bugs in the game, and combined with what I’ve said earlier about the waiting and lack of info, it just doesnt seem complete. The graphics are nice and detailed, but nothing fancy 3d graphics or anything.

If you haven’t done any programming before, robocode is quite hard, but it is a very fun way to learn programming! Also for those who know some programming, it’s a great way to test your skills.
If you want some more info abot the game, or some tips or other bots to look at, you should check out RoboWiki. There you’ll find tips, tutorials, code snippets, and other stuff to help your bot. You can also find other people’s bots, or you can enter your robot into the RoboRumble: A league where you test how your bot is compared to the others.
Be warned, you’ll become addicted to this game if you get into it! But then, RoboCode isn’t a bad thing to get addicted to! A really good “game”!

|Supaplex is a great old DOS game where you control “Murphy”, a smiley that moves around inside a computer and picks up computer chips. That is not easy though, you’ll meet boulders, scissors, exploding disks, and more, which you have to avoid, or use to make your way through the levels. This may sound simple and stupid, but the game is actually very good and challenging. There are 111 levels (more can be downloaded from the internet), and many of them are very hard. It’ll take many hours to get through all of them.
The game was made in 1991, and so, the graphics are of course not very good, but you don’t need anything better for a game like this.
This game was originally made for DOS, so you may not be able to run the game straight away in Windows XP. Read the spfix63.doc file that comes with the game, or read around on the download website for tips on how you can get it to work correctly. I had to use the command line options “spfix63.exe *5 H” to get it to work. If you’re still having problems, it should work if you use DOSBox.
