If you're yearning for the bygone days of Ultimate-style action, look no further. Cadaver is well-deserving of a place in everybody's software collection.

Cadaver is just packed to the brim with some of the most beautiful graphics you will ever see on your machine and is addictive and playable as hell itself. I give my heartiest of recommendations.

Cadaver promises to be a game that will keep adventurers busy long into the new year. Bitmaps and Mirrorsoft have spent a lot of time getting the product ready and are convinced that it will be a success. The definition of cadaver according to the dictionary is corpse - I'm pleased to announce that this game is most definitely alive and well, and should be around for a long time to come.

Les Bitmap Brothers signent avec Cadaver un jeu d'énigmes prenant, digne ancêtre d'un mix du Professeur Layton et de Lego Harry Potter. Devant son succès, ils réalisent un an plus tard une suite du même tonneau, Cadaver : The Pay Off qui ne décevra pas. Et leurs futures productions comme Speedball 2 ou Gods seront attendues avec ferveur par les joueurs des années 90. Mais il faut se méfier de Cadaver. Partir en balade avec le nain, c'est risquer de ne pas en revenir de sitôt. Et c'est bien grâce à lui que l'on avait la chance de pouvoir devenir un des premiers no life de l'histoire du jeu vidéo. Peut être l'origine de son titre ?

Ardent fans of the Treasure Trap style of isometric arcade adventure, or indeed the Bitmap Brothers' previous work, will struggle to find Cadaver's appeal as it's far less arcade-oriented. More adventurous players are in for a real treat though.

Power Play
Kaum gönnt sich der grimmige Zwergenkrieger namens Karadoc nach dem letzten Abenteuer mal einen kleinen Urlaub, stolpert er schon ins nächste. Karadoc trifft auf einer Sightseeing-Tour durch ein Fantasyland auf einen einsamen Wanderer, der ihm die Geschichte einer schatzgefüllten Burg erzählt. Unser Zwergenheld hört kaum noch die gemurmelten Worte über fiese Monster, Magie und Gefahren, sondern hört im Geiste schon die Goldmünzen klingen. Kurzerhand macht er sich auf die Socken, um diesem Schloß einen kleinen Plünderungsbesuch abzustatten.
