Transplant

transplant01.png
Jumping Jack Flash 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

If there were an award for most distributed freeware game of the era before the Internet became all-encompassing, Transplant would be a serious contender. At a time when it just became viable to put floppy disks on magazine covers not just as a special, but on a regular bases, full version games – as opposed to tiny demo versions which might not even have been interactive in many cases – were in high demand. Preferably, of course, not the usual blips and blops crap.


Transport Tycoon

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The game begins with the founding of your company. You choose a fitting portrait, the company colour and of course the name. Then it immediately starts with your first funds. Similar to Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon, in which you could build tracks for your trains. In Transport Tycoon, you're not limited to railroad tracks for your iron horses. On the random map which is full of cities and factories, you can build a depot and bus stops, to transport citizens to the next town, for example. Alternatively, you can create a system of railway tracks through all cities with which you can not only transport people, but also goods like mail. For example, you can build a station near a forest and another next to a sawmill. Connect the stations and you can transport raw logs to the mill, which can be very profitable. In addition, you can conquer the skies with your planes or and waves of the sea with your boats. Either you're just transporting passengers, or you buy fitting vehicles for other goods. That decision is up tot he player.


Transport Tycoon Deluxe

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One of the best business simulations of the 90s. Mange, decide, achieve! Build up your own empire of different means of transport and bring prosperity to the different cities.

Transport Tycoon Deluxe is a version of the classic enhanced by new graphics and features. The game lets you build up your own transport empire starting out in 1950. Your supremacy is challenged by competing other companies which appear subsequently.


Trinity

Infocom 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One could argue Trinity came three years too late. The US Senate refused to ratify SALT II even already a couple of years earlier, the civil Korean Air Lines Flight 007 was shot down out of paranoia in September '83, the Able Archer excercise showed a new quality of macho provocation, and at the end of the same year, the German parliament finally made way for the implementation of the NATO Double-Track Decision, i.e. the stationing of new nuclear missiles right at the iron curtain separating Europe. The most striking example of fictional media coverage of this new height of tension certainly was The Day After, first shown on TV the very same year. In 1986, when Trinity was released, even though the situation certainly was anything but stable, things seemed to be developing in the opposite direction already again. Had Infocom taken too long to deliver their treatment of the mainstream fear of nuclear war?


TriPeaks

tripeaks01.png
Microsoft 1991
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

I tend to dislike card games. My father loved them, and he was much better at them than I ever will be. There is one notable exception to this rule, however: TriPeaks. It's a very simple card game. You enter your name, and a deck of cards pop up, shaped like a mountain with three peaks, with all lowest cards revealed. You get the rest of the 52 cards in the deck, all turned over, except one. Say, you get a 5. You must pick a card from the mountain that's either one higher or lower than your current card, so in this example 4 or 6. Then that card becomes your next card, and you have to pick a card one lower or higher than that one. The idea is to make series, or streaks, of cards. Why? Money. You start the game broke. First card in a streak nets you $1, the next $2, the next $3 and so on. Having to buy another card loses you $5. The object of the game is to get filthy rich. It's more difficult than it sounds, however. I rarely get over $200 no matter how long I play. My father easily got $3500 in a single game.


TripleA

Sean Bridges & Others 2001
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

So many enthusiasts try creating their own games. Very few ever come to a stage which produces something worthwhile. It's not a new phenomenon, but the Internet makes it almost painfully visible through all those hopelessly outdated websites laying out hugely ambitious plans and promising sweeping updates 'soon' – that announcement dating back many years.

Licence: Commercial
System: PC

True Lies

Ljn 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

Oh, a game to a movie. And even with "Big Arnie" Schwarzenegger! That must be great! But as it is the fact with most such games 'True Lies' hasn?t that much in common with the original movie. Showing some small pictures between the levels is intended to continue the story but actually they just lead over to the next fights. Besides, the movie wouldn?t be allowed to be shown with so many bloody deaths as in the game.


Tube

Bullfrog 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

How should I categorize this game? It was a very close call between action and sports and the only reason I put it here is, that it's supposed to be racing. But a very action-based racer!

First of all, I should point out that this is not a commercial game! It was made by Bullfrog when they were working on High Octane, so Tube is most likely some kind of study object. It has been published in Germany by the well-known magazine PC Player (there are even their logos appearing in the game!). So the gameplay is a very early version of High Octane.
