Castle Master

castle_master01.png
Incentive / Domark 1990
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

If a game primarily tries to sell its technical merits, its plot is quickly pushed on the back bench in the development phase. That is probably why this part of the Freescape series (a series known for its free-movement three-dimensional graphics) sends the player on the standard quest of the standard quests: The player takes over the role of either a prince or a princess whose respective counterpart twin has been captured by a magician. The player enters the baddies' castle on a rescue mission, but before he or she can enter the actual dungeon, he or she has to find ten items spread all around the castle.


Championship Manager '93

Domark 1993
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

After my last week's "dry" addition (Imperium) yet another game without noticeable sounds and graphics, but again it's well worth playing. CM 93 takes you into the English football divisions. Starting in Division 3 (the fourth highest league in England) you have to lead your club to the Premier League and European Stages. What makes CM-games different from most other football manager games is the fact that you're just the team manager which means that you don't have control over any finance-related sectors like advertisements or stadium improvements and that you're not always allowed to spend as much money on players as you want.


Deluxe Trivial Pursuit

Domark 1992
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Trivial Pursuit on the computer... always a tricky thing. The game lets you reveal the answer to the questions and asks if you made it correct. Basically completely nonsense to play alone and when playing with a friend the question remains why you don't play the "real" board game. I've always wondered who buys these games at all - but then again, obviously not too many as the game is out of sale (and I cannot remember having really seen it in the stores at all, might just be me, but I guess it wasn't exactly a bestseller and thus not many copies were in the shops). If you don't happen to own the board game this game makes for a somewhat decent replacement though. That weird turkeylike... person... asking the questions is a bit annoying - also he managed to annoy me very fast by endlessly demonstrating that the programmer was able to put my name into a variable and insert that into each and every statement after the question, success or not.


Hydra

Ice Software / Tengen / Domark 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

I never expected the job of a postman to be so exciting! A cool motor boat speeding down rivers and over the sea to deliver important packages (like for example the Britsh crown jewels) to their receipients. Avoiding terrorist ships, mines and floating logs, or blasting them if they are really in the way (I'm waiting for the day DHL starts doing that). All just to ensure speedy delivery (I'm waiting for the day DHL considers taking a go at that, too).


Lords of Midnight III: The Citadel

Maelstrom Games / Domark 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
10 years… an eternity in the computer games world. Even if the two Lords of Midnight games had been very popular at their time, who still remembered them by the mid-90s? Which is probably also what Domark thought, just printing "Lords of Midnight" on the box, omitting the "III" shown in-game. Since 1995, another 23 years have passed. So more than double of those previous ten. So in today's retrospect, 1984 and 1995 have moved much closer together, haven't they?

Pit-Fighter

Teque / Domark 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pre-Mortal Kombat, Pit-Fighter had already showed off what could be done with digitized video in an arcade fighting game. Nevertheless, it didn't have nearly the impact as certain other genre games. Although that wasn't even its only specialty.


S.T.U.N. Runner

Tengen / Domark 1990
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

You've all gone through this: You see this amazing game, a technological marvel, a sensational experience. You buy the game, and then it turns out your own computer doesn't really seem to be up to it. These days, you'd just go out and buy a new video card or a faster processor, but in 1990, that just wasn't possible - because all hardware on the consumer market wouldn't have cut it in some cases. Cue S.T.U.N. Runner.


The Spy Who Loved Me

Domark 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

My name is Bond - James Bond! This game is based on the movie starring Roger Moore. I suppose everyone has seen at least one James Bond movie, so I won't explain what that is...

Domark took the action parts of it and put them into levels which are only loosely connected with short text-based explanations about the story. Most levels are basically the same. You see your vehicle from top and have to reach the level's exit without being killed. These vehicles are either a Lotus Esprit (driving on the road or diving under water!) or a small motor boat. From time to time an enemy appears and you have to shoot him. If you don't have any missiles left, it doesn't matter too much - just let him drive in front of you and avoid his shots! Sometimes a big truck labelled 'Q' appears in front of you. Don't try to destroy or overtake it (like I did when I first played the game 10 years ago ;) - It's your friend 'Q' who 'sells' you equipment for the 'Q'-coins you've selected before!
