After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Back to the Dungeons

So after the information about Dungeon Keeper MMO coming.
I started wondering are the old games still as great I remember
them to be.

Took out my game case and took out Dungeon Keeper Gold and put
it inside the computers disc tray. After installing, familiar intro
started rolling and at the end one of the best bad guys
(or good guys in this situation) of the gaming history showed up.
Horny. This red skinned, hot blooded horned reaper, that I remember
destroying my underground lairs when going on those so often rampages.

That's one of the things I really liked in DK. Unlike the other
RTS games, in Dungeon Keeper your creatures were indepentend and
often did things the way they wanted. Of course you had those always
loyal Imps to do your diggings. One of my best memories is Imp
skirmishes I had with my friends. Nothing beats seeing 100+ Imps
running, teleporting and beating the crap out of others with pickaxes.

Playing through the campaign again was a blast. After that I went even
deeper. To the Deeper Dungeons expansion pack that brought many new
scenarios to play. Many of them really hard and time consuming.
Nevertheless more fun, fun, fun. Dungeon Keeper is over now and I'm
ready to move for number 2. Dungeon Keeper 1 were as great I remembert it
to be, even the graphics were more than standaple. Too bad the
first person mode didn't age as well as the main game.

Dungeon Keeper 2 then. First I was stunned how graphic style had
changed from the dark, grimy and edgy to brighter, colourful
and smooth. I must admit I liked the sprites more than these full 3d
ones, but they still are functional and good looking
(nevermind the pancake faces).

 Dungeon Keeper 2 has the mode that DK 1
really needed. My pet dungeon. It were always fun to just "micromanage"
your dungeon and nevermind getting past the levels. So it's good that
DK 2 has a own mode for that. You still can get through these pet
levels by optaining the right amount of points, you get by expanding
your dungeon and getting more creatures to move in. Oh boy,
the creatures. Or what would you say about a fat devil with no legs
that kills enemys with farts and burbs? I say amazing. Theres also
all kinds of other creatures from traditional vampires and goblins
to weird hand cratures and so on. Too bad DK 2 does'nt have all the
great creatures from the first one, but they have replaced those
with other good ones.

So after getting through all Dungeon Keeper 2
campaing levels, pet dungeons and watched all the funny cutscenes.
I went to extras to see the Dungeon Keeper 3 trailer. It's a shame
that EA practically destroyed Bullfrog and DK 3 nor Horny didn't ever
get to see the daylight.

Now I'm just hoping that the Dungeon Keeper
MMO turns out to be good and I get more great experiences as a Dungeon
