Ancient Domains of Mystery
Platform reviewed: PC (Steam)
Rating: Ice Cool
For the uninitiated (myself included) Ancient Domains of Mystery (or, ADOM) is a roguelike game that has been in development in some form or other since 1994.
In 2012 a crowdfunded project began that moved the game from its ASCII roots to a fully-fledged GUI and this version (3.05 as of December 2017) is the finalised version.

Twitter is a great place to find some retro gaming heroes. Finding those people who are as passionate as you are about video games and particularly retro video games is a hugely pleasing part of being active in the retrogaming community on Twitter.

Today's Games Freezer guest is one such person. She is an ever-present member of the Twitter retro gaming community and makes awesome YouTube content on retro gaming and current-gen gaming. 

Today I am happy to present Gemma aka The Gebs 24 from Juicy Game Reviews.

Gemma's YouTube channel is brilliant and her Twitter feed is always a must-read, so let's take a look at what makes Gemma tick with another round of questions put to an awesome member of the retro gaming crew...

Orange Moon

Platform reviewed: PC (Steam)

Rating: Melting

Orange Moon begins promisingly enough; you are dropped on a distinctly orange Moon with some weapons and ammo to begin your mission, a mission that is split into days and involved traversing the harsh landscape looking for resources. 

The game sets a solid mood and has great, sharp graphics and a suitably minimalist audio approach but sadly has some serious issues that unfortunately impact the game quite severely that make playing it a chore.

Review: Lucius Demake "A well-realised de-make that is better than the original, but there are bugs in Lucius’ bed…" #GameDev #IndieGame

Lucius De-make
Platform reviewed: PC (Steam)
Rating: Melting
The story of Lucius owes a great deal to the 1976 film ‘The Omen’, whereby a child is born of the Devil and raised in a human household. I played the original game a few years ago and found it to be a solid, entertaining idea poorly implemented with cumbersome controls and gameplay that could learn a great deal from the more fluid and interactive Hitman series in that Lucius didn’t feel particularly user-friendly or clear, often resulting in wandering around the house unsure of what to do in order to trigger the next section of the game.
