Nightlong: Union City Conspiracy

nightlong01.png
Trecision 1998
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
In this cyberpunk adventure's intro, we witness Joshua Reevs receiving a new task. Several technical achievements, like the hover board or the aircar, have become commonplace in every day life of 2099 in the twilight of omnipresent neon billboards located in run-down corners of shady districts. Those are inhabited by gangsters, thieves and day labourers, and order is only barely maintained through the constant droning of the giant screens, but also such respectable law enforcement officers as Joshua, whose military instincts have been sharpened fighting on the front lines. None other than the governor of Union City, capital of America's New Order, Hugh Martens, is the customer acting quite mysteriously. The almost omnipotent mega-corp Genesis, exerting its power on the government through straw men, has been threatened and attacked by an underground terrorist group. One of the gouvernor's agents, disguised as a journalist, has not returned from a meeting with the terrorists. So Mr. Reevs, aka the player, finds himself on top of the apartment building where said agent Simon Ruby used to live.

Ninja

Mastetronic 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

We know ninjas are mostly bad guys (especially black ones), but imagine if you were a good one? I bet you'd want to save some princess from one of those ubiquitous miscreants, right? Deal! Princess Di-Di (really now?) has been kidnapped by evil Akuma (wait, didn't you annihilate that bully back in Karateka?!) who locked her up in the fortress and set up guards around the place. Your task is to break through Akuma's security and follow the Princess' trail into the fortress by collecting 7 idols, which she mindfully dropped to help her liberator. Deja Vu anyone?


Ninja Kage

Hudson Soft 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: MSX

Has it ever occured to you that the way of a true ninja can be a tough row to hoe? Especially if all you can do is throwing shurikens. One, two, five, dozen shurikens, all in all a heavy task when you are attacked by myriads of other ninja who do exactly the same thing. Now, are you tough enough to take on them all? Will you survive in this vicious battle?


No Greater Glory: The Civil War

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

A word of warning first: If you're not willing to spend at least a couple of frustrating weeks learning the very basics of a game before you can survive the first few turns, this game isn't for you. No Greater Glory is one of the last truly 'expert' wargames - a genre very popular in the 1980s. If you give it time to grow on you, chances are you'll grow to love it.


Noctropolis

Flashpoint Productions / Electronic Arts 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Noctropolis - city of darkness. Home of the superhero Darksheer, the archenemy of every villain out there. Peter Grey's favourite place to escape to from his full life as the owner of a less-than-successful book store. You guessed it: Darksheer is a comicbook in the style of the so-called 'golden age' or 'silver age' of comics.


Normality

Gremlin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Normality throws the player into a dystopian metropolis leaning towards the psychedelic. Right in the middle of it, you take over the role of a teenager in his fourties called Kent who finds himself in his flat which has gone under in total chaos. Due to the game being classified as appropriate for six-year-olds, there are no beer bottles, porn magazines or even a huge, filthy bong to be found. Instead, there is just a boob tube, a dripping faucet and a permanently nodding tumbler bird. The run-down gloominess of Neutropolis does not fit with the good-natured and carefree mind of the protagonist.


North & South

Infogrames 1989
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] North & South was the first Amiga game on this website. It was a conscious choice: For me, it always represented an era of graphically attractive and relatively lightweight, but fun games. It had always been one of my favourites when it came to wasting half an hour with a friend. Even today, it reminds me of more innocent times…
