Max Design 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (VGA)

In late 1992, two trading simulations were competing for the (German / European) market: Der Patrizier (also know as The Patrician abroad) and 1869. The latter came a little later (wow...) and it was generally considered the loser in this direct duel by the press. Only by a small margin, though - a very good second place.

1st Division Manager

Codemasters 1993
Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Weee...yeah, I know I know, I'm a Championship Manager addict, too :) but since there's no CM for a C64, we'll have to use something like this, eh?
1st Division Manager is one of the few fairly good (although quite primitive) and realistic (again, although quite primitive) Commodore64 footie management games. Boosting a nice matchview engine (we don't have player animations in Champan :)), 1st Division Manager is an option for those who want to make a carreer out of this.


Avalon Hill 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Acquire was one in a series of business board games created by Sid Sackson and released by 3M in the 1960s. Later, most of these games were released by Avalon Hill in the 1970s and 80s and are now the property of Hasbro. Acquire is probably the most exciting of this lot of games. It requires good thinking, great foresight, a little bit of luck and lots of attention. The computer version of the game can last only ten minutes, but these ten minutes will require your full attention. Due to the fact it is a board game, the replay value is extremely high.

Advanced Lawnmower Simulation

Gardensoft 1988
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Freeware
System: ZX Spectrum

It's the things which are fun in real life which usually translate well into great computer games. And you know what's really fun? Lawnmowing. Don't you just love going back and forth, tweaking your route till perfection, while at the same time, you have plenty of time to think about all kinds of things? At last, Advanced Lawnmower Simulation gives you the opportunity to do all this in front of your computer!


Falken Software 1991
Genre: Strategy, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Airline is a nice German business simulation where you try to build up and expand your airline worldwide. At the start you can either decide if you want to start a new company, expand an existing one or wish to bring an unprofitable airline back on the winning track.

Anno 1602

Max Design / Sunflowers 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Tapuak] Anno 1602 is a classic city building sim. You're founding a settlement in a world of islands, and develop it by providing space to live and necessary goods to the citizens. In mission mode, you have to fulfill single tasks, but in free play, it's your final goal to beat your opponents from the surrounding cities to achieve sovereign rule over the islands. At the beginning, you choose a appropriate island to found your first settlement. Right from the start, you have to deliver basic goods to your people.

Ascii Sector

Christian Knudsen 2009
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Remaking Privateer... many have tried, quite a few have succeeded. Yet, Ascii Sector stands out even from the group of good ones. The selling point: The whole game uses the the ANSI (ironically, not actually ASCII) character set (in 16 colours) to create the graphical environment the player moves in. This is because the game takes place in another part of space: the Ascii Sector. Like the Gemini Sector found in the original Privateer, the Ascii Sector consists of four quadrants, numerous star systems and many planets. Just (obviously) not the same ones from the original game.


Sunflowers 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Considering that Sunflowers created games like Fugger II and the Anno series, a similar game like Atlas can't be all that bad. Surprisingly, however, this game is just a knock-off of a Japanese game from 1991 which falls far behind my expectations.


reLINE Software 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Eh???? What is this? Biing! is a completely whacky and erotic hospital management simulation, or to sum it up: something absolutely crazy.

So you are the head of a hospital (not the boss, that guy is just sitting in is armchair, smoking cigars) and it is your task to earn every day's rent for the location, because if you don't, you're bankcrupt immediately and you have to start over.

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.
