Borrowed Time

borrowed01.png
Interplay / Activision 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Sam Harlow - Private Eye. It all begins with a quiet day at the office when the phone rings. 'They want you dead', a voice gasps. And how right that voice is! Two thugs are already hot on your trail. And even after you manage to escape those two, that wasn't the end of it: Your ex-wife has been kidnapped, everybody who tries to help you is assaulted and even more bad guys are after you.


Boxing

Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Boxing. I can hardly think of a less interesting 'sport'. Two sweaty fat guys beating each other up. Or actually not, because most of the time, they seem to be hugging each other anyway. No, really, I fail to see the fascination. WHY IS HE REVIEWING A BOXING GAME, THEN? Well, I've also had a lot of fun with racing games, and I wouldn't be caught dead near a real racing track. As so often, virtual reality and real reality are two pair of shoes.


Crackpots

Activision 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Evil mutant spiders are invading your house. These monsters are crawling up the wall, trying to enter by the windows. You're the world's last chance, and the weapon of choice is, of course, potted petunias. You throw them down, trying to hit the uglies before they reach the windows. Now, if only everyone's favourite award-winning actor William 'Captain Kirk' Shatner had thought of that in the philosophically subtle and thoughtful Kingdom of the Spiders...


Face Off!

Activision 1989
Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Face off!' is a great hockey game for its time but suffers quite a bit compared to EA's NHL series. Nevertheless is has a lot of things you can expect from a good hockey game. Exhibition and league games, several coaching options and nice extras like fights and a goalie cam.


Fishing Derby

Activision 1980
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Being better than your opponent. It's one of life's basic struggles, repeating itself over and over again. The fight to be the best, to gain glory and have the loser hang his head in shame and admit bitter defeat.


Grave Yardage

Activision 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

American Football with monsters - that's Grave Yardage. It adds elves, ghouls and wizards into the mix, and all of them are after an eyeball with legs - the stand-in for a ball. Points are scored the usual way: by carrying the ball all across the field. Or... by beating up the enemy players.


Hacker 2

System: C64

Kevin Mitnick...THE man. Have you heard about Kevin Mitnick? Have you ever wanted to be like him? Yeah I know...stupid question, of course you did. To be sincere, I wanted that too. I even broke into ***.*****.****.*****.edu but that's another thing.


Labyrinth

Lucasfilm Games / Activision 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

There were Adventure games before SCUMM and aside from Sierra's endless Quests. Lucasfilm's first own foray into the genre was Labyrinth - an official offshoot of the movie of the same name (starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly).

Infocom/Activision 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Atom City is not exactly the hub of the universe. Located somewhere in the Nevada desert, it becomes the epicentre of events of galactic importance when one night, a spaceship crashes near its gas station. On board is the friendly alien called Barth whose home world, Planet X, has just been conquered by the evil Leather Goddesses of Phobos. Who, as expected, turned all the inhabitants into sex slaves.


Little Computer People

lcp01.png
Activision 1985
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

In the mid-90s, Tamagotchis - little annoying egg-shaped beeping virtual 'pets' - were really popular for some time. Later, there was the immensily successful (deserved!) PC game The Sims which gave the concept of the virtual 'goldfish tank' more complexity. But two decades before, this idea had already been put into a game! Little Computer People - the first scientifical simulation of life (not counting Alter Ego)!
