It Came from the Desert. It was at one point not only my fave Cinemaware game, but my favourite game, period.

I've always been interested in WW1 flight sims (two biographies of the Red Baron and a translation of "Der Rote Kampflieger" on my bookshelf), but Wings was merely an ok game for me. Quickly overshadowed in my mind by Knights of the Sky and then the brilliant Red Baron by Dynamix.

The Three Stooges - loved the crazy humour and sound samples. Cinemaware were one of the 16-bit software companies who heavily supported the PC platform, unlike a lot of other developers - so their games were must buys for me.

3 Stooges has one of the best intros on any game ever.

Defender of the crown on the Amiga for me. Holding down k while it loaded to get a thousand knights made the game so much easier.

Hello everyone. For me it's Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon. The interactive storyline (CW's trademark), the agony, actual physical terror (bloody Cyclops) that you could die at any second, the... hot stuff, beautiful music and so much more. An unusual Cinemaware title in that it's a one-man show, coming from the genius of the late Bill Williams...

For anyone unaware of this, there's a massive chance now to support Cinemaware's comeback, check out their Wings campaign.

For me it has to be Wings.

The triumph of another successful mission mixed with the despair of another hard fought career cut short by the unsporting 'Hun'. Sadly there are crosses all over France due to my ineptitude :D Naturally I backed the KickStarter for an updated version as soon as I found out about it.

My other favourite was 'King of Chicago'. I like to think of it as the blueprint for 'Grand Theft Auto' :wink:
