|I admire the crew's dedication, despite half the bridge being on fire, they soldier on
The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Sunday to update readers on what Mark G has been up to with respect to finishing off games on his "Pile of Shame". The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew
- Picked by Me
- Percentage Complete = 16%
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
- Picked by Luke
- Percentage Complete = 69%
I also managed to secure another Level 2 fort after a couple of attempts. I now only have Level 3 forts left and my next mission is in the port of Kingston.
King's Quest IV
- Picked by Choona
- Percentage Complete = 18%
The game's puzzles seem more logical than the previous games (at least so far) and somehow Rosella seems to die far less than King Graham or Prince Alexander (at least it seems that way). Also, Rosella seems to be a domestic goddess since one of the ways you can get a bag of diamonds in the game is to clean up the house where the Seven Dwarves live!
Anyway, after getting about 40 points, I'm now stuck as all I can do is play an organ in a creepy house (for no apparent reason), visit a locked crypt and avoid an ogre from eating me. There's also a unicorn that is apparently under my spell but I can't direct it anywhere.
Despite not trying to read spoilers, I did find out from reading descriptions of the game that it takes place over roughly 24 hours and has day/night cycles… which means the reason I'm stuck is probably because I have to wait until night time to solve some of the puzzles.
