B.A.T. II

bat201.png
ESP / Ubi Soft 1992
Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Bureau of Astral Troubleshooters, an intergalactiv secret police, had already made a name for themselves in the episodic, self-titled first game. Now it is time for the big job: The Koshan conglomerate has come into a monopoly position as the only supplier of a resource of galactic importance. Through foul play, of course. B.A.T. has already sent one agent to Koshan's base planet, but in spite of a seemingly perfect cover story, she seems to have been detected. So the player goes after her, to save her, but also to finish the mission.


B.C. Kid

Factor 5 / Hudson Soft 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Conversions of console games to computers often go wrong. Translations of Japanese games just as often. With B.C. Kid, it went surprisingly smooth. It first appeared on the PC Engine and had (for 'western' tongues) a really strange name. The English version became 'Bonk'. Bonk? To make a long story short, the Amiga version got a better title when it was ported by the German company Factor 5 a few years later.


Back to Skool

Microsphere 1985
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Last year, schoolboy Eric managed to steal his report card from the headmaster's safe. He has taken his time to forge a positive one. Now it's time to get it back into the safe.

A lot has happened on the school grounds over the holidays. It has been split in two sections: a boys school and a girls school (with a fence between them). The boys' building (the only part which could be seen in the prequel Skool Daze) has been expanded, too. There are now more classrooms, more offices, a new assembly hall and (perhaps the most useful innovation) a bathroom. The school has also bought a new safe to replace the old one. This one doesn't have a combination of numbers, but a simple lock. But where has the key been hidden?


Backstage

Art Department 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

A local radio station is holding a competition: answer five questions about (male) rockstar 'Alex X. Pose' (for the younger readers: the singer of a then popular band called Guns 'n' roses was called 'Axl Rose') to win a romantic candlelightdinner with him. Our (male) hero is keen to be the chosen one. Yes... you'd better ignore the homoerotic elements of this story. Anyway, let's just say our protagonist is a huge fan, ok?

Balance of Power - The 1990 Edition

bop_000.png
Chris Crawford 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Balance of Power is almost a simulation of the cold war. As one of the two major superpowers (USA or USSR) you try to gain influence without starting a nuclear war.
The rest of the world is serving as a playground for the enemies. Other countries are not directly conquered but you try to get the respective government on your side or to overthrow it.


Baldies

Creative Edge / Panasonic Interactive 1995
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Baldies is a real time strategy game.

PLOT

The plot is simple, you have to lead the Baldies to victory over the Hairies.

GAMEPLAY

This is a standard build, research and attack game (no hunting for resources). There are four types of Baldie, breeder (Red), builder (Blue), soldiers (Green), and scientist (White). When the first house is built you have to pick up Baldies and place them in the house (just by dropping them on the house), and then double click on the house for an internal view which consists of four rooms (one for each of the colours) and a hallway. It is possible to move the Baldies from one room to another via the hallway. This allows you to branch into different spheres of research and breeding. For example if you have mostly red then your Baldies will multiply alarmingly. Once four houses have been built you will have access to the "shovel" and the "angel wings". The shovel allows you to extend the land or even remove little sections of the land so as there is only water underneath (I enjoyed going onto my enemies land and trapping his men and drowning them). The angel wings allows you to select a group of Baldies with the mouse and send them where you like (even onto your opponents land).


Ball Raider

Diamond 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Not everybody is a game designer. Ball Raider is what happens when people who think they draw some 'mean' pictures, don't have that sort of insight. So you have some images ready, but there's still no game idea? The images don't even really form a coherent picture, because they're all over the cliché fields of Science Fiction and Fantasy? Well, just slap simple, but well-tested classic game concept on top. That always works, doesn't it?


Ballern

Mr Creosote 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This is actually not a game, but only a 'programming excercise' I did for myself. It was intended to mimic the basics of a shooter, but all you can do is move around and shoot, because there are no enemies.


Ballyhoo

ballyhoo01.png
Infocom 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In spite of a few visits as a kid, I've pretty much always been quite a cynic about the circus. Ballyhoo is all about the circus. So insert your favourite fuzzy stereotypes here as I'll neither be listing them, nor be talking about 'the magic' or whatever. This game is set in the circus. The owner's daughter has been kidnapped and she's held for ransom. The player has to find her, because the detective who has been hired to investigate is a clueless drunk.
