Future Wars

Delphine Software Interactive, 1990

Winner of the Best French Adventure Game award, Future Wars is the tale of a simple window washer who suddenly finds himself transported to the Middle Ages, then propelled thousands of years into the future. Playing as our mild-mannered hero with a squeegee, your task is to stop two time-traveling races from annihilating each other and along the way to rescue a kidnapped princess too! The game has a few arcade sequences, but overall this title is an amusing and adventurous romp through time.

The graphics are amazing and depicts the artist's realistic artwork. A CD-ROM version of this game was later released by Sony Electronic Publishing with excellent music and sound effects. Most recommended!
