Bleifuss Fun

UDS / Virgin Interactive 1997
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
In Germany, Ignition was called Bleifuss Fun, linking it to the successful Bleifuss (Screamer) games. Apart from the title and the in-game language, there are no differences.

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

George Stobbart - occupation: American tourist in Paris. After a few month, he comes back trying to get it on again with his girlfriend Nico, the photograph who helped him unravel a Templar conspiracy in the first game. Instead of the date he hoped for, Nico drags him to the home of a Professor of Central American culture - where the two are knocked out. Nico is taken away while George is bound to a chair with a poisonous spider in the room. And just to be sure, the baddies also set the room on fire.


Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

American tourist George Stobbart is enjoying himself sitting in a cafe in Paris when he witnesses a murder: a clown plants of a bomb and an older man in a grubby raincoat who had been eyeing the young waitress just a moment before dies. The clown escapes through the sewers. Because he has nothing better to do, George decides to investigate on his own, meeting the journalist Nicole (Nico) Collard who supports him for selfish reasons. They uncover a conspiracy involving the order of the templars... Looking at the current bestseller lists of novels and the cinema charts, Broken Sword hits a popular theme there.


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.

Cool Spot

Virgin Interactive 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Cool Spot is a side-scrolling action game with a twist. What makes it different than the next game on the shelf? Not much, but for one in Cool Spot you will have a lot of fun.

You control a big red spot with arms, legs and sunglasses (a cool spot indeed) that he never takes off, except for when you die. The goal of every level is to collect at least 30 "cool points" and find a cage where another cool spot is held captive and free him. The cool points come in the form of small red disks scattered around the level. The levels themselves are different settings from around us - the beach, the pier, the bathtub, the toy store and so on. Everything is blown up because you are but a small (if cool) spot, so a crab is one of your serious enemies. Talking about enemies, they include crabs, frogs and fish that spit at you, flies, mice throwing pieces of cheese, spiders, robots, jumping balls and model cars. You defend your coolness by shooting small white disks. If you run out of coolness, you die (and you get to see what the spot looks without the sunglasses).


Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty

Westwood / Virgin Interactive 1992
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Despite popular beliefs, there is nothing original about Dune II. Except of one thing, which enabled Westwood to become a powerhouse among games developers. As for gameplay, however, the game did not "revolutionarize", "create a new style of gaming" or "became the first of its kind." All it did was to combine several games already out in the market. The developer did this very skillfully, however, creating an unique experience and one of the most entertaining games ever.


Ignition

UDS / Virgin Interactive 1997
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Nothing stolen, nothing gained. While the world was anxiously waiting for the next generation of the Micro Machines series, Ignition came out of nowhere and took pretty much exactly the same line. OK, strictly speaking, they're not toy cars, but you do drive unlikely vehicles across unlikely tracks.

It's the last days of the Soviet Union. Gorbachev has destroyed part of the old structures. But as always when there's change, there are groups who want to take advantage of it. For some, it doesn't go quickly enough, some want to go back as much as possible. And some of those aren't all that peaceful about it...


Lure of the Temptress
