WWF Wrestlemania

wwf01.png
Acclaim 1995
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

WWF Wrestlemania - The name says it all. The official license has both its advantages and disadvantages for the game designers. Much room for creativity concerning character design and playing modes does not remain, but these are of course advantages, either. Because well-known fighter "personalities" already exist to whom the followers of this "sport" connect different cliché attributes, the typically ridiculous plot of an average fighting game can fortunately not be found. Another point is that potential weaknesses of the playability will be easier looked over by the players because of the disciples' emotional link to their idols. The designers could therefore put all their efforts in a conversion as "realistic" as possible.

Twilight / Ocean 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A wrestling game on the Amiga made by Ocean in 1991? This couldn't have gone right! Surprisingly, it is not nearly as bad as expected. In decent graphical style – with big, distinct sprites – large men homoerotically grab each other and it is fun! There you have your conclusion.


X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse

X-MenMutantApocalypse_00000.png
Capcom 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

The X-Men are Marvel's most successful team of superheros. And that is actually surprising if you know a bit about the history of this series. It was started back in the mid-60s, like so many others. But the X-Men never really made it, the sales couldn't compare to the Fantastic Four and all the others. So their story ended in 1970: the series was discontinued. No more stories of Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Iceman. Gone the threat of Magneto, the Juggernaut and the Sentinels.

Mr Chip Software 1987
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4

Everything was so easy 'back in the days'. Just throw together a action-packed game concept in which you control some vehicle in some tricky situation, add some nice graphics, mix it up and there you are: a finished game.


Xmas Lemmings

A warming hat that is of course,

Genre: Strategy, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6

Yie Ar KUNG-FU

yiear01.png
Imagine / Konami 1985
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Aspiring youngster Oolong wants to become Grand Master of Kung-Fu. To achieve this, he has to defeat ten opponents (one after another, not all at the same time).

Nothing special so far, the mid-80s had their fair share of beat 'em ups (and many good ones). What sets Yie Ar Kung-Fu (I'll drop the capitalization seen on the title screen here) apart is the opponents. In the seminal hits of the time (Karate Champ and all), the player mostly faced faceless enemies who were identical to each other and also to the player. In Yie Ar (to shorten this even further), each opponent has his or her own sprite, his or her own moves and even his or her own weapon (!).


Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2: The Emperor Yie-Gah

YieArKungFuII_001.png
Konami 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: MSX

Another martial arts tournament? Great. Only this is not a matter of free will and personal ambition. As a newly-made kung fu master Lee Young your noble quest is to free China from the grip of the evil martial artist Yie-Gah who happens to be the sole survivor of the villanous Chop Suey Gang formerly annihilated by your father and who has conceitedly declared himself a new emperor. As anticipated though, before you face Yie-Gah and depose his tyrannical regime you must defeat his best henchmen warriors trained in different martial art styles...


You Don't Know Jack

YDKJ1.jpg
Jellyvision / Take 2 1998
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You Don't Know Jack was published in the year of the lord 1998 in a version with original questions for the German market. The game idea was not new, the first English version has been available in the US already in 1995 and it was carried on into a second part in 1996 which, apart from the new questions, was the basis for this 1998 German YDKJ.


Z

Bitmap Brothers 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5.3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Is it just a cheap "Command&Conquer" clone or a game with new ideas? Both is right because 'Z' is obviously a part of the past wave of real-time strategy games but it is also far better than similar games.
