Bundesliga Manager Professional

bmp01.png
Software 2000 1992
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Visiting an old acquaintance... you probably know that, not having seen each other for a long time. Maybe you think back how it was. The good old days together... back then... you have lots of fun, it was wild times, fun times and so on. Now you're facing this old friend again - and... now what? Often, everything is different. Time has cut a rift you can't bridge anymore. You two have become alienated. That's a pity then. Then, there are the cases in which you stand face to face and it is almost like no day has passed at all.


Bunny Bricks

Silmarils 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The 'Bricks' part of the title is really the defining one here. Make no mistake just because the protagonist is a clothed cartoon bunny wielding a baseball bat: this is still Breakout. So this bug (or another weird creature) throws a ball against the wall and Bunny (I guess that's his first name) has to hit it after it bounces off, propelling it back into the wall, where it again bounces back from, destroying the hit brick in the process. Rinse and repeat until all bricks have been cleared.


Bureaucracy

_bureauc_000.png
Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Infocom's text adventures are known to be the best. Their game engine with its great parser was used for a large variety of masterpieces. Bureaucracy is one of those. What it makes superior to most of its "colleagues" is the hilarious plot. It was written by Steve Meretzky (Leather Goddesses of Phobos, Stationfall) and the well known author Douglas Adams. The two had collaborated before to convert Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy into a game.


Burntime

MAX Design 1993
Genre: Strategy, RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Flames of nuclear war devoured the world, cities, towns, forests... all became a desert filled with mutants and survivors. But you are not only that, you are a leader on its way to join again this land.


Byzantine Perspective

Lea Albaugh 2009
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Although the annual IF competition is a great event, there is one big problem: Usually, the number of seriously buggy and broken entries is high. That leads to many reviewers' threshold for believing a game to be broken to be very low. Which means that sometimes, a game will be considered broken which really isn't. A trap which Byzantine Perspective fell into until word got around that what it made appear broken was in fact a big puzzle. In the end, the game placed in midfield, but it was a lot more popular with the other authors (who, by definition, are probably willing to put more trust into a fellow author's work), taking third place in the so-called Miss Congeniality contest (voted by the authors).


Caesar

caesar_000.png
Lüder Osmers 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

This nice shareware game is not related to Impressions' Caesar, but the board game classic Risk. So you're supposed to conquer the world once again. The secret of the board game's success: It is very simple. Similar board games are just not this intuitive, they cannot be finished in a socially acceptable amount of time. Sometimes, they use scary, non-standard dice. And so on and so forth.


Caesar

Impressions 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

"Intellectual property" is a fairly new invention of our lawyer-driven world. You can be sure that in the days of the ancient Roman Empire, nobody would have sued anyone for copying ideas. Maybe they would have sent a thug to rough you up, hired curthroats to murder your family or, if they were real meanies, sent an army to massacre your whole people, but they wouldn't have sued.


Caesar II

ps_000.png
Impressions / Sierra 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The sequel to Impressions‘ 1993 game Caesar, this Sierra title is the first in the City Builder Series to utilise the isometric view. Sporting a massive improvement visually and in terms of gameplay over the first game, it was also one of the relatively few games that could run natively in both MS-DOS and Windows 95.


California Games

Epyx 1988
Genre: Sport
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

California, as films tell us, is all beaches and hot women but this games pretends otherwise, they also have their own brand of sports. Sports for cool people, obviously but sports which, lucky us, we now have the chance to try without leaving our homes.


Callahan's Crosstime Saloon

callahan01.png
Legend Entertainment 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Jake Stonebender is one of the regulars at the prolific bar where people from the past, the future and various mythological dimensions meet. Some visitors share their personal problems freely with the protagonist - dragging him right into them as he tries to solve them. How do you turn a series of short stories into a computer game? Make it episodical. Each of the episodes can be played independently with the bar acting as the place where short interludes take place. Interestingly enough, each episode is quite long on its own, resulting in a massive game when combined.
