Archon – The Light and the Dark

Archon00.png
Electronic Arts 1984
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64, PC (CGA)

Have you ever heard about Napoleon? Yeah, the genial goblin-like garlic-eater. It's strange how along the time, the good games that had a look at this formidable person...simply failed to appear.


Black Crypt

Raven Software / Electronic Arts 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] Black Crypt is the first game made by Raven Software who later got relatively well-known for their more action oriented (but also first person/3D) games. Their first one is a fairly straight RPG in the tradition of Dungeon Master, though.


Budokan: The Martial Spirit

Budokan01.png
Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The true disciple does not just master one art form. Following the popularity of martial arts films in the 1980s, Budokan lets you train in four such disciplines: Karate (unarmed fighting), Bo (staff), Nunchakus (two connected sticks) and Kendo (bamboo swords).


Car and Driver

Electronic Arts 1992
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Car & Driver is indeed a magazine, but they managed to get a racing game out. When you go into the menu, it's exactly as if you were reading their magazine, except that it has the game's screenshots and some real pictures. It features 10 best cars and tracks with very nice range of variety. This is almost like Electronic Arts's prequel to their beloved Need For Speed Series.


Centurion: Defender of Rome

Bits of Magic / Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Centurion: Defender of Rome was one of those overly complex yet simplistic games that had their heyday in late 1980s and early 90s. Designed by Kellyn Beck, the mastermind behind Defender of the Crown, the game is built on the same principles, only set into a different time period.


Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf

Electronic Arts / Gremlin 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In Desert Strike you are the pilot of a chopper in the Middle East, your main objective being to take out a madman trying to take over the world. You accomplish this by achieving your mission goals, which are laid out prior to each mission and vary from destroying buildings and vehicles to capturing enemies to escorting other vehicles. Not only do you have to worry about being shot down, you can also lose ammo or run out of fuel, both of which can be corrected by collecting ammo crates and gas drums, respectively.


Electronic Arts' World Tour Golf

Electronic Arts 1986
Genre: Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Though this game was published by EA, it was created by Evan & Nicky Robinson and Paul Reiche III. When this game came out, EA hadn't yet started making their own games, they only published. Well, enough with the history lesson, on to the review!


Imperium

Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

So, what makes this game so 'dry'? Well, just look at the screenshots. Apart from the 3D starmap everything is white and gray. Furthermore there's no sound. 'Why play this game then?', some of you might say. WAIT! You're about to miss a great game...As I said, it's a very complex and deep game, but luckily I've managed to find the manual for detailed information.


LHX Attack Chopper

Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Mega Drive

"There are cases when you design something that looks good on paper and there's only one small part of it that's fun. You have to focus on that and throw the rest away." Brent Iverson, the designer, chief programmer behind LHX and the author of these words did just that. He created a flight simulator that's pure joy to play: not too much of an arcade, which would disenchant less action-prone people, and not too much of a simulation, which would leave 95% of the gaming population frowning. LHX is simply the right blend of arcade, simulation and pure fun.


M.U.L.E.

Ozark Softscape / Electronic Arts 1983
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 400/800

What is a M.U.L.E.? It stands for Multiple Use Labor Element, the robotic backbone of the economy on planet Irata which is about to be colonized by members of different alien races. And, well, from human history, we all know what 'colonisation' implies: Grabbing land before anyone else does, exploiting it for profit and when you've milked it dry, move on – leaving political and economical chaos behind.
