Borrowed Time

borrowed01.png
Interplay / Activision 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Sam Harlow - Private Eye. It all begins with a quiet day at the office when the phone rings. 'They want you dead', a voice gasps. And how right that voice is! Two thugs are already hot on your trail. And even after you manage to escape those two, that wasn't the end of it: Your ex-wife has been kidnapped, everybody who tries to help you is assaulted and even more bad guys are after you.


Boxing

Activision 1983
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Boxing. I can hardly think of a less interesting 'sport'. Two sweaty fat guys beating each other up. Or actually not, because most of the time, they seem to be hugging each other anyway. No, really, I fail to see the fascination. WHY IS HE REVIEWING A BOXING GAME, THEN? Well, I've also had a lot of fun with racing games, and I wouldn't be caught dead near a real racing track. As so often, virtual reality and real reality are two pair of shoes.


Breakdance

Epyx 1984
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

The 1980s obviously were the cultural high point of humanity as a whole. However, it has to be admitted, not everything which came out of that decade was great. For instance, there was Hip Hip, Rap and Breakdancing. Urk! Now, if this is my view on this "phenomenon", what qualifies me to review a game called Breakdance? Nothing, really; I do it because I can. Oh, and we're really committed to show the dark sides of classic gaming as well (phew, last minute excuse).


Breakout

Atari 1978
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Breakout… need I say more? Come on, folks, you all know this one! Designed as a single player version of Pong, it replaces the second paddle with a brick wall from which the ball simply bounces back to the player – destroying the brick which was hit in the process. Repeat until all bricks have been removed from the board. Following the success of the Arcade original, a port to Atari's own home console, which was still in its infancy at the time, was the logical next step. So how does this version fare?


Breakthru in 3D

Pong...the game that ate my nights :). Indeed, I had a hard time playing PONG, I even tried to make my own. Some years ago, after playing Elite, I was even more curious to see a Pong game in 3D. After playing Doom, I thought at a first-person Pong.


Breathless

Fields of Vision / Power Computing 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
After Gloom and Alien Breed 3D, the announcement of Breathless must have raised some interest. After all, both previous games had featured pretty coarse graphics, whereas these new screenshots… wow! When it finally came out in early 1996, the biggest fear was even averted: it did run smoothly enough even on just lightly expanded A1200 equipment with only little graphical degradation. Double wow!

Bricks 2000

Genre: Puzzle, Action

I had to notice that The Good Old Days do not feature a single Tetris-game. So I went and asked Mr Creosote if there was any reason for it, suspecting he might have some sort of hidden hatred for that game or something like that. But well no, no real reason - just doesn't seem to be his genre. It's mine though. Those very very few of you who remember my own old site The Keep might also remember I had a good number of Tetris-clones up there. So I thought which of those might be the best to be THE Tetris-game up here. I'm not saying there won't be any of the other ones around here anytime, but one has to be the first.


Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

George Stobbart - occupation: American tourist in Paris. After a few month, he comes back trying to get it on again with his girlfriend Nico, the photograph who helped him unravel a Templar conspiracy in the first game. Instead of the date he hoped for, Nico drags him to the home of a Professor of Central American culture - where the two are knocked out. Nico is taken away while George is bound to a chair with a poisonous spider in the room. And just to be sure, the baddies also set the room on fire.


Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

American tourist George Stobbart is enjoying himself sitting in a cafe in Paris when he witnesses a murder: a clown plants of a bomb and an older man in a grubby raincoat who had been eyeing the young waitress just a moment before dies. The clown escapes through the sewers. Because he has nothing better to do, George decides to investigate on his own, meeting the journalist Nicole (Nico) Collard who supports him for selfish reasons. They uncover a conspiracy involving the order of the templars... Looking at the current bestseller lists of novels and the cinema charts, Broken Sword hits a popular theme there.


Brutal Sports Football

brutal01.png
Millenium 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS), Amiga (CD32)

In contrary to the potential expectations considering the name, Brutal Sports Football does not have very much in common with soccer or football (or even sports). Some elements have been adopted, though. Two teams try to put a ball into the enemy's goal while guarding their own.
