Den nordiske Jules Verne-bibliografi:

Jules Vernespil til PC.


1. Hjemskaffet af Lejfs søn Søren. 

Et "SteamPunk-Computerspil" fra det franske forlag Cryo.

Spillet får følgende anmeldelse på en tysk hjemmeside:
Man gelangt in der Jetztzeit mit Hilfe eines Mini-U-Bootes an Bord der vergessenen Nautilus, diverse Umstände führen dazu, daß der Rückweg abgeschnitten ist, man wird von einem mordlüsternen Bordcomputer drangsaliert und muß nun einen Fluchtweg suchen.

Pro: Nette, wenn auch unscharfe Grafik mit 360° Rundumsicht.

Kontra: Absolut(!) unlogische Rätsel, man stirbt auch mit einer Komplettlösung mindestens fünfmal, man kann die Grafik in den seltensten Fällen bewundern, da man ständig unter Druck steht (diverse Countdowns, die EXTREM knapp bemessen sind), vollkommen schwachsinnige Story, die nichts aber wirklich garnichts mit der Geschichte Jules Vernes gemeinsam hat, pixelgenaue Klick-Akrobatik (natürlich unter Zeitdruck!), in 95% der Rätsel so gut wie keine Lösungshinweise (einfach alles auf alles anwenden, wird schon irgendwann was funktionieren), Spielertod ohne Vorwarnung (upps, falsche Türe! Tut uns leid, Sie sind tot!) und zu schlechter Letzt: ein unbefriedigendes Ende.

Fazit: Finger weg!!! Wer unbedingt 30 Euro loswerden will, sollte diese besser einer Hilfsorganisation spenden oder feierlich verbrennen - da hat man wenigstens noch etwas davon.

På kan man finde tre pc spil, Journey to the Moon, Return To Mysterious Island og Journey to the Center of the Earth. Billedet af ”Journey to the Moon” har været oppe tidligere. Prisen er 79,- eller 99,- norske kroner plus omkostninger. Der referes til spillet Nautilus med 117.000 solgte kopier, men jeg har aldrig fået det til at virke.

Mysterious Island

The true essence of adventure is captured in this second PC game inspired by renowned author Jules Verne. In this first-person survival adventure, players will encounter recognisable locations from the famous novel, including the granite house, the volcano and the Nautilus. However, Return to Mysterious Island goes beyond Jules Verne's storytelling as players take on the role of Mina, a courageous young woman on a solo round-the-world sailing expedition.
In your quest for survival using logic, discovery, creative inventory management, and elements of the supernatural, the adventure unfolds across splendid photorealistic pre-rendered vistas. Intuitive puzzle challenges and vast exploration of the lush tropical landscapes of the island, all combine for a brilliantly executed adventure game.
Round-the-world saling expedition... Ship wrecked on a deserted island.. The ghost of Captain Nemo... The quest for survival... Caught in a tremendous storm, Mina, our heroine, becomes stranded on the shores of a wild and apparently uninhabited island. As she explores her new surrounding, she uncovers artifacts, living spaces and technologies left behind by the people who came before her to this uncharted island.
Creating a new life, Mina build a home from the remains of Granite Roack and uses her survival skills against ethe wild of the jungle. She soon becomes aware of a figure in the shadows who offers her assistance. She eventually identifies this figure as the unsettled ghost of Captain Nemo, whose body is located on the island. To return to civilization, you must piece together the hints and clues Captain Nemo provides, retrieve his body and give him a proper burial in order to free his tortured soul.

Inspired by the classic Jules Verne novel of the same name, Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a point-and-click adventure. The years is 2005, somewhere in the skies above Iceland. Ariane, a young reporter, is covering a story for a leading discovery magazine. No sooner has her helicopter landed on a ledge of the Sneffels volcano than it is destroyed in a violent rockslide. Ariane is thrown clear, but the pilot is lost. She sets off to try and find help when suddenly the earth opens up under her feet. Several hundred metres below she finds herself alone on a subterranean beach. Ariane discovers the strangest of landscapes and a host of unusual objects. What is this weird world? Who are these people? Where do they come from?

Join Ariane as she explores an unknown world of fascinating and fantastical civilisations hidden beneath the surface of the Earth. For a professional journalist it's the chance of a lifetime, with the promise of a scoop to really make her career take off. But once the first rush of excitement at the discovery is past, grim reality rushes in: the future of this world is in jeopardy. Almost against her better judgment, Ariane dives right into the thick of the action. What choices will she make? Will she be able to find her way back to the surface? Will she get the scoop of a lifetime? Will she reveal the existence of this world at the risk of redoubling the threat to its existence?
