The Test is Now READY

TheTestIsNowReady01.png
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

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.


The Wicker Woman

Kevin McGrorty / Monster's Legs Productions 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

The Wicker Man is "Britain's best horror movie" (according to Empire magazine). Whether this is true is up for discussion. Whether it is the best of anything anyway, but even its status as a horror movie could be disputed. One notable website describes it as "a bloodless musical thriller-cum-travelogue through the Western Isles which was disowned by its makers on release" and ironically calls it a "comedy musical" elsewhere. It spite of, or maybe because of its quirkiness, it has become a cult classic. And now, it inspired this fan-made sort-of-sequel game called The Wicker Woman.


Theme Hospital

Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I would like to introduce another 'sequel' of one of the greatest classics of past kids games today. The critical question is whether Theme Hospital can match the 'desease potential' of Theme Park which may very well be one of the more popular games of its times, or whether this is another sequel successfully ruined. Well, this is what you will always learn at the very end ;)


Theme Park

Bullfrog 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Your rich aunt has just died and you are her heir! Overpowered by joy, you go out to tell off your boss. But then you notice a silly sidenote in the testament: You are only allowed to spend the money on building Theme Parks, and the profits can only be spent on additional parks. So you give in to your fate (you can't go back to your old job anyway after what you've done to your former boss) and start planning!
