Cannon Fodder

Sensible Software / Virgin Interactive 1993
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, Mega Drive

Take the title. Take the slogan 'war has never been so much fun'. It's obvious Cannon Fodder is not a game to be taken seriously. Is war something to make fun of? Well, why not? However, it doesn't make a game automatically good as some people seem to suggest. It's still the game which counts, not the theme. So let's talk about the game.


Mega Lo Mania

Sensible Software 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Imagine a mixture between Populous, Powermonger, The Settlers and Civilization. What you get is Mega Lo Mania. This is of course not overly correct. Some of the games are older than the game we're talking about here (Populous, Powermonger) and can therefore be classed as role models. Civilization was developed at the same time and The Settlers was released significantly later, so it was inspired by Mega Lo Mania and not the other way round.


Sensible Golf

Sensible Software / Virgin Interactive 1994
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Golf computer games… it's another big, big case of why. Real golf is sort of a relaxing stroll around extensive grass areas. You get to be outside in the fresh air, walk or drive one of these cool carts and from time to time, you hit a ball. You get to consider which iron to use in which situation and depending on your skills. In a computer game, the machine will do most of these things for you. Where's the fun in that?

Sensible Soccer

Sensible Software / Renegade 1992
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

For some reason, high speed was considered the ultimate goal for sports games for some time in the late 80s and early 90s. The one distinguishing feature of such football games is ball control: Different from most football games, Sensible Soccer will not 'trap' the ball on the active player's foot. This makes dribbling more or less impossible – the ball bounces away too easily when changing directions. On the other hand, Sensible Soccer makes passing easier than normal. You can't only shoot the ball in one of the usual eight directions. If one of your own players is available in the general direction you aimed the ball at, the game will semi-automatically adjust the direction accordingly.
