The Colony description

Rejected by most of the players adventure, and rejected quite trivial reason – "graphic backwardness". Note the quotation marks - despite this popular opinion, the game is not such.

The plot is as follows: the pilot of a space ship (which will play you) receives a distress signal from a distant colony and directs the ship to the planet on which it is located. However, the strange planet's gravitational field, the resulting impact which the landing is not too well. The pilot, fortunately, survives, but is a hostage situation and inevitably begins to investigate mysterious events in the colony. Then it turns out that you can only save six children, and captured by the aliens planet to be destroyed, but to recount in detail the plot is not necessary.

The gameplay is to describe in detail is also not necessary (except note that the game is first person), but the graphics... Yeah, such a schedule can greatly scare spoiled by shaders players. Primarily because, unlike the Macintosh version, PC-version - default - black-and-white (though by pressing F8 you can set it to color mode). However, in my opinion, it could be called author's solution. Moreover, in a number of other technical aspects of the game was even somewhat innovative: battles in real time, digitized audio and full mouse support and attention! - fully three-dimensional scenes (this is the question of the backwardness of the graphics). Yes, of course, the 3D here is, what could cause someone to remember the first part of the Ultima, but still, it's 3D!

Something, perhaps, do a little "behind" in something - on the contrary, ahead of its time, The Colony remained unclear for the majority of players and was forgotten shortly after. Let gameplay is somewhat "painful", but the faithful fans of the genre adventure game to recommend is quite possible: it was oblivion, she just does not deserve.

Tired of your same old routine, want to add some entertainment and fun element in hour life? Play one of the best videogame The Colony online now and change your boring oold routine for good.
