Hi!

I frequently add games to the database of Adventure Point feature pages, but usually in dribs and drabs. It's quite a long process and I have to find time to do it around my 'real' job.

For the last two months I've been working on creating pages for quite a few new additions - some well known and current, some more obscure and some on the fringes of the Adventure genre.

As you know the database is not comprehensive, as that was never my intention. However, I do like to include the more 'popular' titles as well as the odd curios here and there.

I thought it might be of interest to list the games that have been added since early December. If any of them pique your interest, just look them up in the Adventure Point index pages.

I hope you'll enjoy reading about them as much I did researching them.

Anyway, enough talk. Here they are . . .

Impressive! There's more than a few that I haven't heard about yet.

There seems to be a little problem with navigation though. In the old pages the review links opened a new browser page, but the new pages navigate away to the reviews. It doesn't seem to be possible to navigate back to the database however. If I want to lookup another game I have to start again using my shortcut in favorites. Anyone else had the same problem?

Do me a favour. Try it again on the 999 game feature page. See what happens.

If it's okay now I have some work to do. Siiiigh! Rolling Eyes

If it's still the same I doubt I can do anything about it. Sad

I'm sorry, you have work to do. Smile
And now that you directed me to 999, I noticed that the A to Z page (with from-to) is a bit behind the times...

Gelert if you go to the 999 feature page the review sites will bring up a page for the review but you can't get back to the game data base, it just stays on the 999 page. Sad

It really is incredible Gelert how you do it all. I'll never figure out how you hold down a job, raise children and spend time with the family and friends, play a lot of games, and in addition to all that also create this entire website, forum, and game database with lots of info and links.

I worked it out. If you add a few letters to his name you get Green Lantern. Why didn't you tell us you were a DC Superhero?

I realize also that there are some great people here who help Gelert out with various forum admin roles, etc. One man can't possibly do it all, right?!?
