Rainbow Arts 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The early days of the Cold War. The USSR is blocking all land transports to the western sectors of Berlin. The USA have initiated an air bridge to supply the city. But Berlin is like a tiny island in what is going to be the GDR - when it comes to war, it'll be overrun by the Red Army immediately!


Eco Quest: The Search for Cetus

Sierra 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Mr Creosote] The first part of Eco Quest, which we will be discussing today, came out in the early 90s. Much later than the start of most of Sierra's 'endless' Adventure game series. Consequently, it did not turn into a long series anymore: Only two parts have ever been released. So, let's begin with the first one, subtitled 'The Search for Cetus'.


Eden Blues

ERE Informatique 1987
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

...And the next thing you know you're in prison. Whatever crime you commited bears no importance, but what truly matters is that you're now behind bars and have to find your way out of here ASAP. Besides, what could be more romantic than escaping from a slammer? But beware, this isn't your typical prison, for there are not even guards to tease and jeer at nor fellow convicts to bully or share ciggies with. Here you are all alone, save for a bunch of security droids that seek to interfere with your plans for escape. There are also traps and other harmful devices set around to make your life difficult, so all you need now is just a little bit of luck and perseverance... if only not a whole lot more.


Ein ganz normaler Schultag

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6

System: PC

Compared to my previous Adventure games, this one offers a vastly improved 'engine' which allows the player to move around freely through the (admittedly few) locations. Puzzles have been included as well this time.


Einmal Kanzler sein

Computerpartner T&S GmbH 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

In 1986, Rio Reiser had a big hit singing what he would do if he were king of Germany. With this anarcho-dadaist hymn, he poured out satirist derision all over the German political circus. Everybody was singing along and laughing, but by 1991, chancellor Helmut Kohl (who had been one of the main targets of the song's mockery) was still in office, more powerful than ever. That was when Einmal Kanzler sein (Being Chancellor) was released.


Eishockey Manager

Software 2000 1993
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Although Eishockey Manager is a game in its own it should be considered more a sideproduct of the successful Manager series by Software 2000. If you know Bundesliga Manager Professional then you'll be comfortable with this game at once because the menus are basically the same.


El-Fish

AnimaTek / Maxis 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

El-Fish is a fish breeding/creating and aquarium-building simulation that was released by the companies Maxis and AnimaTek in 1994 (Maxis is the creator of the successful Sim game series, while AnimaTek was a Russian company that invented the concept of El-Fish). The game was advanced for its time – the photorealistic 3-D fish you can create look and move very realistically, and, through breeding, can be shaped into from 800 possible attributes into infinite numbers of unique fish. A fractal-based generator can also create unique decorative plants for your tank, and a rather intelligent random music generator can put together simple pieces of background music for your tank-display. Plus, just watching the fish you've made swimming in a tank you've designed is a very calming and rewarding experience.


Electronic Arts' World Tour Golf

Electronic Arts 1986
Genre: Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Though this game was published by EA, it was created by Evan & Nicky Robinson and Paul Reiche III. When this game came out, EA hadn't yet started making their own games, they only published. Well, enough with the history lesson, on to the review!


Elefanten!

elefanten Schuh GmbH / WWF 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

Oh, sweet childhood! Even for boys, there were ways of making shoe shopping (basically one of the most hated activities ever) into a true adventure. In one store chain, you got free comic books of Lurchi and the competition had you go on a safari (well, at least you could get a plush elephant)! It's the latter company (which has by now disappeared from the market) which is also responsible for this game: another attempt at acquiring customers in a playful way.


Elfmania

Terramarque / Renegade 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

All those people sneering at the thought of playing fighting games with a single-button joystick probably have never tried one which has been originally designed for it. Admittedly, many genre entries don't play all that well that way. Though those are usually ports of successful arcade cabinets or from game consoles equipped with multi-button gamepads. "Reducing" an existing control scheme well is a sometimes impossible task. Elfmania has been designed from scratch for a simpler control scheme, on the other hand.
