Knobelkiste is a compilation of four puzzle games developed and published by German company Data Becker.

Note: I just couldn't make it through the whole last level and win the final boss fight so far. I used a save state to repeat the last fight without going through the level. I might still try to beat the whole last level in one regular take.

Volfied (known as Ultimate Qix in North America and Brazil) is an arcade game originally developed by Taito for the arcades. It was ported to the Mega Drive/ Genesis by ITL and published by Brazilian company Tec Toy (in Brazil) and Taito (in North America and Japan). the game was also released for PC-Engine, Amiga, Atari ST, C64, PC and FM Towns.

Volfied has story. You control the spaceship Monotros which has just returned to its home planet Volfied. Unfortunately, Volfied has been invaded by aliens and most of the populatio has been wiped out. Yet there is an S.O.S. signal by some survivors below the surface, so you set up to rescue the people.

Volfied is an extended version of Qix. You control a cursor, which now represents your ship.You need to change a field by drawing lines with your cursor to form rectangles. Once you complete a rectangle a part of an underlying image will be revealed. While you are not drawing, you can only move on the border of the field and the parts of the borders of the rectangles you have drawn which are adjacent with the rest of the field. You need to change a certain amount of the field within a time limit. There are enemies moving over the field, including a large boss. The boss often shoot at you or do other attacks.If you get hit by a shot or an enemy while drawing, you loose a life. Trapping enemies in a square will kill them. There are also blocks on the field. If you enclose a block while drawing square, you get get either bonus or a power-up. Power ups include a temporary laser to shoot enemies, a time stop or an increase of speed.

Lady Killer is an arcade game developed and published by Mitchell Corporation. It was only released in the arcades.

Lady Killer is an adult game where you need to uncover images of drawn women. At the beginning, the image is covered with water. You control a diver and uncover the image piece by piece by diving and resurfacing. The image is divided into squares. You dive into any square covered with water. This square will then be flipped and shows a part of the image. You can resurface at another square covered with water, while you cannot resurface on squares which are already flipped. There are enemies spawning both over and underwater. If you touch an enemy or get shot by one, you loose a life. You also loose a life if you stay underwater too long. If you flip a square, any enemy standing on it, also partly, will be destroyed (though one enemy type can evade).
A number of items make your task easier. Flippers will make you move faster for a while, oxygen tanks increase the time you can stay underwater, items with arrows will flip all squares in the directions the arrows points, starting from the next field where you dive or resurface.

Qix is a puzzle game developed and published by Taito. It also released for C64, Atari 8-bit, Atari 5200, Amiga, Game Boy, NES, Apple IIgs, Fujitsu FM-7, Lynx, PC, Apple II and C128.

You control a cursor which can move on the border of a rectangle which covers the screen. If you press a button, you can leave the border and you will draw a line with cursor. There are two buttons, one for fast and one for slow movement. Slow movement will yield more points. Connecting the line with the border and thus forming a rectangle will fill its interior, and the borders of the rectangle touching the old colour will become part of the boundary. You need to fill a certain amount of the screen to complete a level. The challenge comes from several factors. There are sparks moving on boundary, and you loose a life if you touch them. If you stop while drawing a line, a spark will appear at the beginning of the line and come after you. It will disappear if you finish the line before it reaches you. There is an energy field moving across the screen. If it touches you while you draw a line, you loose a life. The energy can only move in the area with the initial colour, however. Finally, there is a time limit after which the number of sparks is increased.

Now what is this all about?

Out of Order is a point-and-click adventure game developed and published by British company Hungry Software. It was also released for Windows and macOS. Apparently, it was planned to be commercially, but the developer then decided to release it as freeware to showcase his SLUDGE engine on which the game is running. The engine was later released as open source.

You play a young man called Hurford Schlitzting. One night he wakes up due to a storm and suddenly finds himself and his room transferred to a different place. He learns that he's in a place called the town, which is inhabited by both humans and aliens. He soon finds out that everyone's been brought to The Town for a reason, but no-one wants or is able to tell him anything else about that.

Stix (known as Aree in Italy) is a puzzle game developed and published by British company Supersoft. It was also released for BBC Micro / Electron. The C64 was also published by Italian company Pubblirome and by Keypunch Software.

Stix is a clone of Taito's game Qix. You control a cursor which can move on the border of a rectangle which covers the screen. If you press fire, you can leave the border and you will draw a line with cursor. Connecting the line with the border and thus forming a rectangle will fill its interior, and the borders of the rectangle touching the old colour will become part of the boundary. You need to fill a certain amount of the screen to complete a level. The challenge comes from several factors. There are sparks moving on boundary, and you loose a life if you touch them.

Well, it was pretty silly I got away with it all the time, to be fair.

Gals Panic 4 is a puzzle game developed and published by Kaneko. It was only released in the arcades.

The game is a clone of QIX and Verytex, with an adult theme, just like Fantasia. You move a cursor around the boundary of an image which has been covered. If you hold down fire, you can leave the border and draw a line with your cursor. Once you have a closed shape, the part of the image beneath the shape is revealed and the border of the shape become part of the new border. This way, you gradually reveal a pic of an anime girl. You need to uncover 80% of the image before a timer runs out to beat the level and uncover the whole image. To make the matter non-trivial, a creature is roaming through the uncovered parts of the image. If it touches your cursor while you are away from the boundary, you loose a life. The creature will often spawn smaller creatures which you also have to avoid, or you use a unique move like an energy field which will kill you if you are away from the boundary regardless of your position.

A boss.

Description from my old video on the game:
The Hidden Below is a first person shooter. It was developed and published by German company Soft Enterprises, with distribution by Kingsoft. You take the role of a private investigator who sneaks into a factory during his investigation of a case of industrial espionage. However, it turns out that vicious aliens reside inside the factory, and so you have to fight your way through all floors right to the top to get rid of all the aliens.

The game has somehow a place in history due to the features of its engine. It was released in 1994, shortly before Doom II, but already featured slopes, the ability to look up and down, the ability to jump, crouching, diagonal elements and Duke Nukem 3D-stlye security monitors.
Try to never miss the map device.

In terms of gameplay, the game plays a bit slower than other shooters at the time. Enemies are fewer and you need to find an item in each of the spacious levels, so you do more exploring. This gives the game a small hint of Action-Adventure

R-Type DX is a compilation. It contains the Game Boy ports of the games R-Type and R-Type II which were orginally developed by Irem for the arcades. R-Type DX contains the orginal Game Boys versions and new versions with colour and new graphics.

Bay-Route is a shoot'em up and run-and-gun developed by Sega and Sunsoft, and published by Sunsoft (in North America) and Sega (in Japan). It was only released in the arcades.

Bay-Route is similar to the Contra, but you have several hit points, you do not collect additional weapons. There are four different weapons, and they are always at your disposal. You can switch between weapons with a button. There is a standard shot, grenades (which have limited ammo), a flamethrower and shot with lower fire rate which explodes into four smaller shots when hitting anything. You can aim in all directions. Weapons can be upgrades by finding a power-up, though only the weapon currently active will be upgraded. If you die, you loose the upgrade of your current weapon. Other power-ups extend your life points or refill your health.

The game can be played alone or in two-player co-op.

Katakis 3D is a shoot'em up developed by German company Similis. The game was close to completion, but apparently got cancelled because the developers could not find a published. This video shows footage from a development build from 2001.

Katakis 3D uses a third-person perspective where you fly "into" the screen, similar to the Iridion games on GBA. Enemies and obstacles will appear from a distance and come closer. You have three weapons at your disposal, and you can change between them at any time. If you pick up a symbol with the colour of your current weapon, this weapon will be upgraded. Apart from weapon upgrade, there also extra lives and power-up which clean the whole screen of enemies.
You loose a life on one hit. While the life counter can reach zero, you have infinite lives in this build.

After each level, you get a number of points you can distribute on the three abilities attack, defense and speed. The number of points depends on your performance.
