Body Blows Galactic

Team 17 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Well, if Capcom can do it, so can other companies. So Team 17 re-released their Body Blows in a new Galactic version. They didn't call it Body Blows 2. What has changed?


Body Blows: Have the Fight of Your Life!

Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Team 17, the least original developer ever, were fast to jump on another trend and try themselves at Street Fighter 2. Body Blows boasts big sprites and it plays fairly fast (compared to Amiga's SFII port). And, probably most importantly, it was an original Amiga development, i.e. they may have found some better ways to handle such a game than the workarounds found on computer ports of arcade hits.


Bongo

Kingsoft 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4
You loved Donkey Kong, didn't you? Sure, everybody did! What about all those imitations? Eh, so-so, overall. Many aren't that playable and some which tried extending the gameplay actually destroyed what made in fun in the first place. Let's see about Bongo.

Border Zone

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Wandrell] Infocom takes us back to the times of Cold War, in a classic tale of spies the two blocks collide, and only you can stop an evil plot before time runs out.

[Herr M.] That is, the authors throw you in the role of three of the said spies, who find themselves in a small imaginary country near the west-east border, where a high ranking ambassador is going to be assassinated.


Borrowed Time

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!
