Title:P.R.O.G.U.E.Genre:RPG
Developer:2098 SoftwareYear:1998
Description:An excellent ASCII graphics (text-based) RPG featuring background music and very good gameplay. I disliked the designers using common graphics for battles, shops and some other things while the rest of the graphics are consisted of ASCII characters. Maybe some people like this kind of mixture, but I don't. If you are going to make an ASCII graphics game then stick with that kind of graphics. Other than that, a very appealing RPG. MIDI background music.

Title:Pac-Classic Beta ver.0.2Genre:Action
Developer:Phillip Jay CohenYear:2000
Description:A very nice pacman game that emulates the look and the gameplay of the 1980th original very well. Even those beepy sound effects are there. Since this is a demo, it's quite limited. It only features one map and the game does not increase in difficulty as you advance. So this is mainly for curious people and not for those who are looking a good pacman game to play.

Title:Pac-Clone 2 ver.2.0Genre:Action
Developer:Nuno FreireYear:2000
Description:An ok pacman clone featuring big levels and scrolling, but not full screen. Tile by tile movement and scrolling. In Pac-Clone 2 the player is being chased by one ghost through the level. What is interesting is that the player can monitor his progress (where is he and the ghost and where are the blobs he needs to eat up) on a mini-map. The graphics are ok, but I really disliked the fact that the designer used some graphics and fonts which are not his and did not credit them. The game contains only 3 levels, each with a different tileset. Pac-Clone 2 is very nicely designed with nice menus and fadein/fadeout effects. Excellent game for relaxing.

Title:Pac-ManGenre:Action
Developer:KedjikeenYear:1996
Description:Another QBasic pacman game. It features quite poor graphics (enemies are small squares), but the gameplay is ok. What is really bad about this game is that enemies can pass through the wall (stupid). Otherwise, this game would get a higher score. There are couple of sloppy mistakes in the code.

Title:PacmanoidGenre:Action

Title:Panic ViciousGenre:Action
Developer:HURYear:1998
Description:A very addictive and fun game similar to pacman, but in Panic Vicious you need to use jumping pods to elevate yourself on the higher levels of the stage. Sadly, the game features quite poor graphics (bizarre and sloppy style) and low technical perfection (no movement animations, jerky movement and flickering). Still, the gameplay overcomes these flaws. Nice Sound Blaster music.

Title:Park Fighters 2Genre:Action
Developer:Roger BushYear:2000
Description:A very poor fighting game with terrible gameplay and controls, but with nice graphics. The worst aspect of this game are the controls which are based on the INKEY$ statement, so the game is pretty much consisted of you holding the punch or kick key and hoping your punches will overcome the opponent's. Single player mode only (with a story and progress).

Title:Ped Xing's QuestGenre:RPG
Developer:TyposoftYear:2002
Description:An excellent action adventure game. Not really a RPG, but Typosoft guys call it a RPG. If you ever played God Of Thunder, this game uses the exactly same concept/gameplay. The game world is consisted of single screen locations. The gameplay features real time battles (different spells you can use and monsters summon), single screen puzzles (getting from one side of the screen to another by pushing stones, etc.) as well as adventure puzzles (talking to characters, exchanging objects). Excellent graphics and excellent design. A relatively large game. I was unable to test the sound and music. It's powered by DS4QB so it's very unlikely you will be able to play the game with the sound turned on in Windows 2000/NT or Windows XP. Highly recommended! The second download contains the source code.

Title:PHAT Professional BurglarGenre:Puzzle
Developer:Phat KidsYear:2001
Description:A very good and challenging puzzle game with Sound Blaster sound effects. The objective in each level is to help the burglar pick up all the money bags and reach the level end by placing arrows in it. Same concept as in The Great Escape. 50 levels. Sadly, this game lacks more varied graphics. The very graphics are ok.

Title:PhatmanGenre:Platform
Developer:QBlueSoftYear:1998
Description:A below average platform game that's all about collection coins, jumping over lava and avoiding enemies. The graphics are below average and the resolution is 640*350. Almost poor and there is very little of it. Tricky game physics (slow acceleration). The game does feature 3 HUGE and very challenging levels. The great thing is that Phatman features a very nice save game option which allows you to save a game on any position. Poor presentation. Only if you are looking for a hard-core, old-style platform game. You might need a slowdown utility with this game. I didn't, but I havenít noticed any delay routine in the source code. Minimal Sound Blaster sound effects (only two in-game sounds).

Title:Pickman 2Genre:Action
Developer:DizzyYear:2001
Description:A quite nice pacman clone featuring small sprites and tiles as well as small levels. The graphics are ok. The game is well coded and it's challenging. What I didn't like is that some levels have deep dead ends (which is part of the gameplay) and the enemy AI is weird. Just not my kind of pacman game.

Title:PiecesGenre:Puzzle
Developer:M \ K ProductionYear:1995
Description:A puzzle game where you need to composed a picture out of mixed up pieces of it (jigsaw). Pictures you need to compose are quite poor and the way you pick pieces is badly done, which ruins the gameplay quite a bit. The game is nicely designed with nice menus and options you can use during composing (save game, load game, show picture, ...).

Description:Sequel to Pieces featuring better graphics (very nice jigsaw pictures) and background music (not that good). Pieces 2 has all the features of the first part in form of menus and options. The very mechanics of the game are not improved. I still dislike the way you pick pieces. Maybe that's just me.

Title:Pixel Snake Gem Hunt!Genre:Action

Description:An ok Nibbles clone without AI. It features single player practice mode and two players duel mode. Powerups are implemented. Ok graphics. Nice menus. The game features sound blaster sound effects. With an AI as some more polishing it would get a higher score. I recommend this game only if you have someone to play it with. Anyway, I prefer Trapped 2.

Title:PONG II: Corporate EmpireGenre:Action
Developer:Budfish SoftwareYear:2001
Description:Sequel to PONG: Battle Royal featuring better graphics, tournament mode, ship (paddle) modification (ability to modify/buy new weapons, shields and engines), better options (option of choosing points to win and kills to win) and slightly better gameplay. Still, the gameplay is not that good. Enemy AI is almost perfect so the only way to beat the opponent is to hope for the flaw/bug in the AI to happen (Iíve noticed it and it happens really rarely) or to kill the opponent which takes a lot of time and is annoying and frustrating. Killing the first opponent was a drag. I canít image the next opponents. Having in mind the improvements and some nice graphic effects I'm giving Pong II this generous score, but don't forget the doubtful gameplay. You have been warned. The game doesn't feature any Sound Blaster sound effects or music.

Title:PONG: Battle RoyalGenre:Action
Developer:Budfish SoftwareYear:2000
Description:A poor pong game with weapons. Despite the fact that in this game you can choose different paddles and shoot two types of weapons at your opponent, this game is very poorly designed. The graphics are poor, you play each game until you press ESC (no progress and no way to set the number of points players need to accumulate to win a match), you can play only against a computer opponent, the game field is too small (2/3 of the screen), the graphics are flickerish and the gameplay is highly doubtful.

Developer:Daniel ErikssonYear:1998
Description:A terrible adventure game without any challenge value. You simply need to visit all the locations in the game and execute all the available actions (press a number 1 to 4), although there is only one trigger action in the entire game. Very poor code and design. Terribly short game.

Title:Portal of worlds 2Genre:Adventure
Developer:Daniel ErikssonYear:2000
Description:Almost equally poor game as the first part. Also a first person adventure game (seen through the eyes of the main character) and on each location you can do 3 or 4 actions (press a number 1 to 4). None of these actions can kill you or similar nor you can do anything more complex but press the available numbers. The player simply needs to visit each location in the game and press all the available numbers in them. The game lacks any challenge at all. The graphics (background images) are nice, but the code and the design is very, very poor.

Title:Power, TheGenre:Puzzle
Developer:Davey W. TaylorYear:1999
Description:A very good puzzle game featuring nice graphics and amusing Sound Blaster sound effects. This is a conversion of an Amiga game of the same title. I've played another game with a similar concept - Stone Age. Basically, in The Power your character can only slide from wall to wall and your goal is to collect all the hearts present in the level. You can also move specific blocks if they are present in the level in order to reach the hearts. Unfortunately, this game is too easy and too short (10 levels) to get a higher score.

Title:ProbeGenre:Action
Developer:Brian HoganYear:1996
Description:An excellent action game based on the "lander" concept. In this game you need to take off with your probe and land on any red area inside the level. Each red landing area brings a certain amount of points. Ones that give you higher number of points are usually on more tricky places, difficult to reach. The gameplay is very good, although in the beginning the game physics feel jerky. The graphics are nice while the graphical design is excellent and looks very advance for those years in the QBasic game design scene. Probe contains 24 enough challenging levels, useful options and a level editor.

Developer:SV ReanimatorYear:2000
Description:A very good platform game with excellent graphics, excellent character animation and average music and sound effects. Very nicely coded game, enjoyable to play. No bugs what so ever. The gameplay is very good. The only flaw is, so many times with QBasic games, the shortness of the game. PromZone features only one level and no, it's not a demo. It leaves you hungry for more and you feel disappointed on the end. Neverthless, you won't regret by downloading PromZone.
