Crisis in the Kremlin

crisis_000.png
Spectrum Holobyte 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In 1985, what would happen to the Sowjet Union was anything but clear. In 1992, when this game was released, the largest country ever had already ceased to exist. Mikhail Gorbachev's attempts to reform the state had ultimately failed – even though on a global scale, it had lead to an end of the cold war which had held the world in terror for decades. Though it might all have gone differently. Crisis in the Kremlin puts the player into the shoes of the new head of government in 1985, giving him complete freedom into which direction to lead the country: Will you also try to declare Perestroika (restructuring) and Glasnost (openness)? Will you go even further and pursue the nationalist ideas which, in the actual history, won out? Or will you even try to stabilize the traditional Sowjet system again instead?


Falcon 3.0

Spectrum Holobyte 1991
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Thick 250-page manual. CHECK. Flight stick, throttle and rudder controls. CHECK. Ray Ban aviator classic sunglasses mixed with a hot-shot pilot attitude. CHECK.

Joystick jocks. You know who you are. If you played Falcon 3.0 in the early 1990s you might be just now looking in the mirror and noticing the fine-white hairs sneaking out of the side of your head. Yes, you are that old and so is Falcon 3.0. But perhaps some of those silver hairs are well-earned from the hundreds of hours of flight time you have logged in your virtual cockpit.

Tetris

Spectrum HoloByte 1987
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Game Boy

Turn it, move it, drop it - a day in the life of crane driver Carl. Noone ever asks him before they deliver yet another palett of bricks. Because if they did he would have told them of the problems with them. They never, NEVER come sorted. It's a mess - a real mess! His co-workers don't seem to have any understanding for his problems either. They just put the bricks on the hook and then it's up to Carl to see how he can pile them up. "It's so bad that I can see them in my sleep," poor Carl says. "Pink ones, yellow ones, green ones - and then the sounds. The sounds! Bleep. Bleep. Bleep." After saying that Carl puts his head into his hands and sobs.


Vette!

Spectrum HoloByte 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Vette is a racing game that speaks for itself, you can drive a Corvette against other people. You get to drive in San Francisco and it only has 4 courses to race. The key is to get to the finish line anyway you can. You begin by selecting a Corvette Model like the stock, ZR1, and has the modified ones like the Callaway Twin turbo and the Corvette Sledge Hammer. You can also press space to do a dyno test to see how fast the car can go. While racing, you can get pulled over by a cop and you could come up with excuses why you were driving fast (like "my accelerator got stuck" or "rushing to the hospital to see my wife" or even "i gotta go to the bathroom so bad" then you get the ticket anyway.
