I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream

The Dreamers Guild / Cyberdreams 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In a distant future, humanity has finally done it: it has finally destroyed itself. 'Only' indirectly, though, as it was the 'Allied Mastercomputer', the American defense system, which developed a consciousness, called itself 'AM' (as in 'I think therefore I AM') and wiped out the human race. Since computers (especially military ones) are sadists, it kept five humans alive to torture them for all eternity.

Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Partestrada is in danger! General Pardo the local warlord is plotting a civil war and is aiming to slaughter every last one of the townsfolks. You, a young bright alchemist by the name of Damiano Delstrego, are to protect your beloved hometown and its people whether bare-handedly or by means of magic, whether with help of God or, ironically, Devil himself. The task will take you on a risky journey, where you shall face different creatures some of which are malevolent and some who need your kind service. Your good familiar dog Macchiata and archangel Raphael will accompany and assist you along the way. Make haste and find a way to stop Pardo and his men before they reduce Partestrada to ashes and its people to dust.

Well met traveller! Come closer to the fire and warm your frozen bones a little before you continue the journey through those icy planes. While we are waiting for the clouds to clear up, let me tell you a story about a golden ageā€¦ a golden age of role playing.


Icicle Works

System: Plus/4

It'll be Christmas soon, and Santa Clause has a problem: the presents have been destroyed and the pieces are scattered all over the North Pole. There isn't a lot of time to find and re-assemble them. Well, the latter part will at least happen automatically if the player (in the shoes of said mythological creature) manages the former.


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.


IK+

System 3 1988
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

How can one improve International Karate? Hard question. Most changes and additions would just screw the concept up. Everybody knows examples of great first parts of a series which got spoiled completely in the sequel.


Ilyad

Ubi Soft 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Ilyad is a game with a troubled past. It was scheduled for release in 1989, but for some reason, it never appeared in spite of being finished. A British magazine then dug it up and brought it to the public as a coverdisk in 1991. Another year later, it was finally released commercially at last (I doubt it was very successful; a certain other crewmember of this site owns what is probably one of the few boxed originals in existence). To get it over with right from the start: the three years show. The graphics virtually scream '80s', and they aren't even very spectacular for that time.


Imperator

Thomas Wolf 1983
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Along with Kaiser, this game defined the 'ruler-genre' for years to come! The premise is simple: make your country strong and stable inwards to conquer your neighbours.

Fitting the name, Imperator is set in ancient Rome. Your main job is to distribute the budget amongst several groups of interest. Every year, they demand a certain sum and it's up to you whether to comply fully, partly or not at all. That influences this group's stance towards you. If you give your wife (!) only half the amount she wanted, she'll be more likely to start a rebellion. On the other hand, if you provide the merchants with even more money than they said, they'll love you!


Imperialism

Frog City / SSI 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Europe in the 19th century: military superpowers trying to take over the world. Whether it is direct wars and takeover of land or acquiration of 'colonies' - these were troubled times.

In several scenarios (defined by their starting date, each representing a slightly different historical situation) or on a random map, the players each take over one of the 'relevant' (i.e. powerful) countries trying to achieve total world domination. The final step for this is to be elected by the one of the council meetings which occur on a regular basis.
