The Superhero League of Hoboken

slh01.png
Legend Entertainment 1994
Genre: Adventure, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The Superhero League of Hoboken is another hilarious game written by Steve Meretzky for Legend Entertainment. After a nuclear apocalypse, mutations caused by the resulting glowing garbage and "decaying Nintendo packages" have turned most harmless everyday things into horrible monsters. They've also given some humans incredible superpowers – like being able to raise a foe's cholesterol or make fantastic flow-charts. What were once small towns are now "thriving" city-states, protected by "Superhero Leagues" – and you play as the leader of the worst one… in Hoboken.

The Terminator

Bethesda Softworks LLC 1991
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This is a very interesting game considering Bethesda's later history. It is their first ever attempt at an open world game, years before the famous Elder Scrolls series. And it is very much an indicator of things to come, because it is also an incredibly unfinished, buggy, overly ambitious, nigh-unplayable hunk of glorious junk that has such a great concept that, as you play it, you find yourself longing for a better version of the same game.


The Terminator: Rampage

Bethesda Softworks LLC 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Terminator: Rampage (also known as Terminator: Rampage) was released by Bethesda Softworks in 1993, the third game in the Terminator series from Bethesda, after The Terminator (1990) and The Terminator 2029 (1992).


The Test is Now READY

Jim Warrenfeltz 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

The basic questions of morality will never be answered definitely to everyone's satisfaction. In spite of countless generations having discussed them to death, when push comes to shove, humans still mostly react based on instict, and that is probably even good, because all too often, the result of too much contemplation is total self-inflicted impotence, i.e. it prevents any action. The Test is Now READY is a morality piece which attempts to force the player to make tough decisions for which there are no 'right' answers. It presents five situations, each of which gets right down to its core dilemma.


The Town With No Name

Delta 4 Interactive / On-line 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A train stopping at the Town With No Name... and a Man With No Name getting off. Almost instantly, he's greeted by gunfire, which he returns in kind. Oops... turns out the man he just shot was the little brother of famed gangster Evil Eb who now sends his goons to avenge him.


The Train Game

Microsphere 1983
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

On your first day as the new Chief Operations Manager for a major railway, your expectations of sitting back in a nice office carefully planning generic train routes and timetables turn out to be completely wrong. In your new company, trains don't follow a schedule - they just drive on and on, whereever the tracks send them. A very laid back approach, but the traditional stuffy and bureaucratic way has two major advantages: fewer collisions and more reliable customer service. It's your job to still ensure both - by operating the switching points.


The Wacky World of Miniature Golf

Philips Sidewalk Studio 1993
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: CD-i

If something calls itself "wacky", it's usually a bad sign. It looks like a clinical case of overcompensation. "Weird" Al Yankovic anyone? Then again, a straight miniature golf game on a computer may not be considered too exciting.


The Warlock of Firetop Mountain

Puffin Books 1982
Genre: RPG
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Gamebook, ZX Spectrum

[Mr Creosote] This one is going to be unusual for our website, because normally it revolves around games in a digital form. Today we are going to talk about a ‘gamebook’. And, as might have been expected, we did not just pick one at random, but the gamebook itself: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain. Yet I have to tone down a bit: Actually it is already our second gamebook on the site. The other one has been hidden for about 14 years in the comics section.


The Way of the Exploding Fist

Melbourne House 1985
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64, ZX Spectrum

After the success of Karate Champ, it was only a question of time until the first imitations would arrive. The Way of the Exploding Fist is one of these. Whatever your personal verdict about the game's quality (and imitations in general) is: It's certainly one of the games with the most creative names ever! Exploding Fist? Hard not to like it!


The Way of the Tiger

WAYTIGER_0.png
Gremlin Graphics Software Ltd 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Dedicated to all true beat 'em up fans! You are to take part in the most bizarre and outlandish tournament, where the common reality strangely overlaps with a mythical fantasy world, which yet oddly enough perfectly resonates with the martial arts theme of the game. You, a fighting ninja warrior (with a bit of shaolin flair) are to encounter and defeat a number of fearsome opponents, and to compete in three major fighting styles featured in the game, specifically unarmed combat, pole and sword fighting. Accept the challenge if you dare, and may the victory be yours! Absolute masterpiece of its own time and platform, and quite honestly the best and most enjoyable fighting game I ever played on Spectrum.
