1869

1869_01.png
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

1stdivision01.png
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.


221B Baker Street

221b01.png
Datasoft 1986
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Some board games can be converted into computer games perfectly, because their rules are simple and logically structured enough. 221B Baker Street is such a case.

30 cases in classic style of Doyle's shorter Holmes stories are waiting to be solved by the player(s). As it was common back in the 80s, the nicely written introductions to these aren't presented 'in-game', but they can all be found in the accompanying casebook.


3 Ninjas Kick Back

3NinjasKickBack000.png
Malibu Interactive / Sony Imagesoft 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

The Mega Drive was filled with many memorable titles ranging from Sonic the Hedgehog to Streets of Rage, though 3 Ninjas Kick Back can be considered one of the more forgettable experiences you will probably have on the Mega Drive console. You begin with the choice of three characters, all of whom are from the movie the game is based on, each come with their own unique weapons that include a bo, a katana, and twin swords. The enemies you encounter are pretty generic, ranging from dogs to ninjas, and the boss fights are not practically challenging though they can be cheap at times. The downside to the game is that each character, besides their weapons, play identically to each other, they possess the same speed, power, and jumping distance. The game consists of 5 levels, which are segmented into smaller parts, and can be generally frustrating at times to locate the exit. Though, once you get the gist of it, the game can be completed in a little over a half an hour. Overall, the soundtrack of the game is it’s only redeeming quality, as it sounds as good as some of the better Mega Drive titles.


3 Skulls of the Toltecs

Revistronic 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Arizona, 1866. Fenimore Fillmore, the young (actually, he looks like he's 12 years old) hero of our story, accidently stumbles across the secret of three golden skulls which unlock the way to the treasure of the Toltecs. One of these skulls is already in his possession. Two other ones have yet to be located, but at least he knows who has them.


3D CyberPuck

Ticsoft 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

How could this game's concept be described most accurately? Yeah, right - by telling which classic game it's a clone of! Two problems with this though: Nobody will know the original and (even worse) even I forgot the title! It was a sports game by Lucasfilm on the C64 (at least I think it was on this system). Edit: In fact it was Ballblazer by Lucasfilm on the old Atari. Thanks to Chris for reminding me!


3D Spacewars

3d_spacewars_01.png
Graftgold / Hewson Consultants 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

The history of one of the greatest computer game developers begins here: Graftgold! Riding on the first 3D craze and applying it to the current Star Wars hype, 3D Spacewars is exactly what the name suggests: a space shooter in 3D. Of course, on the home computers of the early 1980s, 3D usually simply meant to have flat enemy sprites in three or four different zoom levels which were switched on the fly to simulate changing distance. A technique which never really looked all too convincing, but whose signalling intention is clear enough.

Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

You wake up from the phone ringing. A voice tells you you were supposed to start your presentation at the office at 9. Your gold watch tells you it's already 9:05. Apparantely having slept in your soiled clothes, you ponder your next move...


A Journey into Xanth

Neil Sorenson 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This is a must for every Xanth-Fan! I always loved the great books of Piers Anthony and searched hard for any computer-games based on it. Long before I was able to get my hands on the graphical adventure I found this game (and lost it when my harddisk crashed).
