Black Gold

Starbyte 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Coal mining: an industry living 100% from subsidies. Here in Germany, they only stopped training new miners quite recently, i.e. until then, they let people go to their doom job-wise by pretending this still has a future. Unbelievable! Obviously, there were different times, too. 100 years ago, coal mining became the backbone of the industrial revolution. And that's the time this game is about.


Crime Time

Byteriders / Starbyte 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64
It's vacation time, so after checking into your hotel, you get drunk. What else? Intoxicated, you stumble into the wrong room and pass out. Not just from the booze, though. The next morning, you wake up next to a dead body, punctured by bullets several times, with blood all over. If there's one thing you remember of last night, however, it is committing no murder! With a huge storm raging outside, it will be some time until the police arrive; time you should use to identify the real culprit.

Crown

Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I'm not really sure how I got to own this game... my guess is it came from one of these sales where the stores would just throw whatever they have left of unsellable stuff on a huge table and be happy about anyone ridding them of anything. So the price would have been low, and the expectations about the same. At least I have no recollection of being seriously disappointed.


Hannibal

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A German strategy game with decent graphics and intuitive controls? What a novel idea! Ok, there are exceptions - think of Battle Isle and The Settlers. Hannibal can't quite reach that high level, but it comes close enough…

Rating: 4/6

System: PC

Well, who ever wasn't angry about watching a highly praised movie in the cinema which turned out to be quite bad? I guess everyone so with this game you have the chance to make movies with your own imagination. From the script up to the costumes you have all things in your hands.


Minigolf Plus

Starbyte 1988
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
The established way of putting minigolf on the computer doesn't allow for much variation. You get your courses in an overhead view, aim and gauge your next stroke (usually using the mouse) and hope for the best. Minigolf Plus implements exactly that, for better or worse.

Rings of Medusa

Starbyte 1989
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The evil Medusa invaded a once peaceful (cliché fantasy) land, conquered much of it and now the remains of the formerly proud kingdom are have fallen apart. As the (formally) reigning prince, the player has to push back and defeat her. However, victory on the battlefield will not be sufficient. Being a goddess, Medusa can only be harmed by the bearer of five magical rings, which are scattered all over the land – some in cities, some on nearby islands and some buried in the wilderness.


Rings of Medusa Gold

Starbyte 1994
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

There's always a bigger fish: after conquering most of the formerly peaceful country, an evil wizard challenges the even more evil goddess Medusa… and is obliterated with the wink of her hand. Now Medusa's armies sweep the land instead. Only the power of the seven magical pearls of the luck goddesses could possibly put the Medusa's powers at bay. Unfortunately, they have been scattered to unknown places across the land in the battle of wizard vs. Medusa.


Rings of Medusa II: The Return of Medusa

Starbyte 1991
Genre: RPG, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

You'd think that a sequel to a fairly popular game would be at least known to people. With Return of Medusa, Starbyte managed the impossible: making their sequel completely obscure. So far that nowadays it is a hot contender for the title of "most misclassified game". Because it is not actually a role-playing game!


Scenario: Theatre of War

Starbyte 1992
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Formally set in the time of the First World War, Scenario pits four powers against each other in the struggle for supremacy over the European continent. Each player starts off with one selected territory and a small army and from there, it's aggressive expansion – into neutral territories first, and then head-to-head against the active opponents.
