Hello dear internet viewer,
Today, I present to you a casino game that much was the victim of bad criticism so that only very few have tried it, despite the fact that it was available almost everywhere. Indeed, the competition was strong at the time, but there was a fairly quite enough large base of demand and let's even say large base of players who were on the lookout for anything that could replace a real casino. As you can imagine, many of them were compulsive gamblers who sought a way to end their addiction without having to pay for therapies that not only were overpriced, but were rarely a success. In this context, a large amount of good and bad casinos game appeared. The one that I am presenting to you today is clearly not a masterpiece, but it is not bad either. It's 4 Queens Computer Casino developed and published by Applications Plus, Inc. in 1992.
Indeed, like I said in the introduction, this game is not a masterpiece, but is clearly not bad, because it offers games that other casino games don't, and that even seen from 2015. It is sure that the interface, the sounds and the presentation are horrible, but the addition of games such as Red Dog and Super Pan 9* give another dimension to the game. Because in video games, Blackjack variants are rather rare, simply because they have too many variables and are unlikely programmable in order to have a AI at the height of a real dealer. And another reason for their rarity, it is that very few understand the rules. But from a standpoint of compulsive gamblers this type of casino game is crucial to their weaning to combat their addiction to gambling. Because generally a compulsive gambler, this is not that much the gain that he's seeking, but rather the risk taking, the feeling of being at the edge of a precipice on a tightrope hoping of course to win with the euphoric effects where it leads. So, you understand that with such a psychological profile, these compulsive gamblers can't be held in place, two thousand things happen in their head, so it is essential for them to have a wide variety of games in order to get the satisfaction which will calm them down. And I believe that 4 Queens Computer Casino, it's really that customers base that was aimed, but unfortunately those who reviews it was not them.
What does the reviews had say to be so denigrating that takes away compulsive gamblers from the game? Well for most, it was the reviews of people who only have played very little and who weren't really fan of this type of game. Already, it starts very badly! So who saw only the outline of the game. For them, it was a game among many others who tried to take advantage of the popularity wave that Trump Castle had brought to the genre on DOS. After all, video machines, table games and slot machines, it was so common. The problem here, it is that the strength of the game, was in the sub-genres that make it unique. And the other reason, there was a rumor at the time that said that the graphics had been copied and pasted with only a few modifications from the game Caesar's Palace, which is totally false, we're talking about two completely different universes. The only similarity is that both are played on the same green surface, standard color for all casinos in the world. And mostly the fact that Caesars Palace was in EGA and this one in VGA, so, using anyway a very different color palette. Yes, the reviews were only talk-shit probably funded by a bigger competitor with the purpose to prevent this game to take its share on the market.
Brief, a game that is not a masterpiece, but which still has its unique touch. So, a game that I recommend above all to compulsive gamblers, who have difficulty finding the Red Dog and Super Pan 9 in modern games. Because yes, I agree, these are two important pieces of the casinos world that are unfortunately too often neglected.
