12:13 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Aeriae has announced the release of Leadlight, a free to play survival horror text adventure game coded for the classic 8-bit Apple II computer. The game plays in a browser based emulator for those who don't have access to one of the venerable machines.
In Leadlight you take on the role of 15-year-old Belinda Nettle, a student at Linville Girls High School in Australia's Blue Mountains. After falling asleep in the library one afternoon, you wake from your mundane existence into a nightmare. Your classmates are transformed, nameless terrors seek you out across the schoolgrounds, and traps and tricks threaten your life at every turn.Learn more about the game at the site below.
Can you help Belinda survive this terror-filled night and solve its mysteries? And will there be a new day?
LEADLIGHT is a new game written in 8-bit code for the Apple II computer, but you can play it right here on this website. A virtual Apple II will appear in your browser window and load the game for you. If you use the ActiveGS emulator option and download the plugin, you can save up to four game positions while playing online, and resume from them at any time from the website. You'll need to save the game if you want to explore its dangerous world thoroughly or amass an impressive score! You can also play offline by downloading a Leadlight emulation pack for your system, or disk images for use with a real Apple II computer.

LEGO Universe Reviewed

Examiner.com recently posted a new rreview of LEGO Universe. The game allows players to create their own custom LEGO minifigure and venture forth to combat the Maelstrom, join with friends to complete missions, and collect bricks to build imaginative creations.
From the review:
If you’re truly dedicated, you can also build any model brick-by-brick, which is fairly easy but very tedious. You can even use real-world LEGO instruction booklets (all of them easily found online) to build any LEGO creation in game. Pretty much every single LEGO brick or part that exists in the real world is in the game.Check out the link below to read the full review.
Examiner.com: LEGO Universe Review
And last, but not least, you can program LEGO creations on your personal property with 'behaviors' and make them interactive. For example, you can make platforms that rise when a minifig jumps on them, or you can make certain things smashable. You can even create your own sort of mini-level using these mechanisms.
