Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Herr M.] Ollie Ollie Oxen Free is the name to a game of hide and seek with a special, slightly grim twist: The school, were you work as a teacher, is attacked, seemingly out of nowhere and by unknown enemies.

Olympic Games 92'

Opera / True Emotions 1992
Genre: Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Even if I’m not a fan of Olympics games, I had to give a chance to this one. After all, it is one of those game that when you played as a kid you found them fun, no matter it was from a genre you didn’t like. Maybe it’s due to Opera being behind it, a Spanish company from it’s software golden age, which knew how to make a fun game.


One Must Fall 2097

Epic Megagames 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Its emerging shareware scene was one of the main draws towards the IBM PC platform for gaming in the early 1990s. Unlike the tightly controlled games console ecosystems, this platform gave smaller developers opportunities to make something against the usual conventions and consequently drew players as well.


Operation Cleaner

Jan Nyman 1998
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Operation Cleaner is a homebrew freeware title, which was created by a certain Jan Nyman (a Finnish indie programmer) at the end of the '90s. Casting you in the role of a demolition expert, the game mainly consists of vertical cross sections of buildings, in which you place several types of explosives, wire them, hit the red button and watch the spectacle. Hire some people to clean up the mess and that’s it.


Operation Stealth

Delphine 1990
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

During tests, an American Stealth Bomber does its job all too well and it disappears. Secret agent John Glames is sent to a fictional country in South America to find it. If you think 'Thunderball' now, you hit the nail on the head - Operation Stealth is a try to get the typical James-Bond-feeling into a computer game (in fact, it was even released as James Bond - The Stealth Affair overseas).


Operation: Inner Space

Software Dynamics 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

You might not believe it if you haven't lived through that period yourself, but screen savers were a profitable commercial market for a long time. One of the best-known companies living from this was Software Dynamics, and their prime product was called After Dark - the world's single most popular screen saver. Everybody knew the flying toasters back then.


Orion Burger

Sanctuary Woods / Eidos Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The galaxy's leading burger chain has found an amazing business model. Instead of growing the necessary ingredients, a time and money consuming process, they just harvest them from existing planets. One complete planet at a time, leaving the world barren and lifeless, Galactus-style. Their next target is a planet called "Earth", supposedly the host of a particularly protein-rich species called "humans". Perfect for burger meat!

Outlaw

Atari 1978
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

You are in the middle of a duel, in the middle of the Wild West, in the middle of an Atari game. And all you have on your side is a revolver with bouncing bullets. No more, this is after all an Atari game, so it requires no more.


Outrun

Unlimited Software / Sega 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Remember those old coin-ops where you sat in a cage that rocked with you as you raced a car? The first one I came across and was immediately fascinated with was called Outrun. You were racing a Ferrari Testarrossa through cities, along beaches and over mountains. The sound, video and chair movement were so realistic that even before I sat in a real car, I knew how to drive (or so I thought). Outrun for PC is the best Sega could do to convert the original game.
