English translations of Slovakian adventures

#1 Post by Strident » Thu Dec 02, 2021 9:12 pm

Flagging these up as they will be of interest to some here, but also to remind us to add English-language entries.

English translations of Slovakian adventures from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

I've added most of these now, except Kewin II which didn't have an original entry in our database.

Several of them aren't traditional text adventures... two of them are hacking/phone games and at least one of them is a menu-driven experience. As they already had Slovakian entries, I added an English one and I'll leave it up to others to decide if they actually have a place in the database.

There are over 200 Czech "adventures" for the Atari 8-bit. Of those, only 146 are currently in the database. I haven't been confident to add the others, as Czech is a complete mystery to me and I can't tell whether they're parser-based, choice-based, simulations or something completely different.

Yeah, I think there are probably a lot more Spectrum titles that aren't even documented on the usual sites, but I'm not going out of my way to research and add them. It needs someone more familiar with that scene. I've only added these ones because there were existing matching Slovak entries. I don't think that a lot of them really qualify for inclusion but I'll leave it to Jacob to decide as he added several of them initially anyway.

I notice that on Podraz III that Jacob did write:
However, the next games (Podraz 4, 5 and 6) are not "pure" text adventures and hence fall outside the scope of CASA.
However, several of the other Podraz games were also in the database.
