Civilization

Microprose 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Without any doubt, Civilization is the greatest and most addictive game that ever graced a computer screen. Designed by Sid Meier, who at that time was already a household name among gamers, the game introduced the world to a new level of empire management: from settling whole continents, through researching new technologies, to building military units, city improvements and even wonders of the world. The game has spawned several sequels and copies, out of which only a single one (Alpha Centauri) comes close in the terms of gameplay and overall fun. Civilization has never left my hard drive, and probably never will, remaining the main reason why I still keep MS-DOS on a separate partition.

"Civilization" is definitely one of Sid Meier's masterpieces and surely one of the most famous games of all times. The game is far too complex to be reviewed in its entirety. For further explanations look into the very extensive help files and the Civilopedia which come with the game.

Rating: 6/6

Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy! is a platform game developed by id Software and published by Apogee Software in 1991 for MS-DOS.

The game is divided in two different episodes, numbered as the fourth, released as shareware, and fifth in the series, even if they really are the fifth and sixth episode (the numbering doesn't include Commander Keen in Keen Dreams). Initially the game was planned to be released as a trilogy, but during development the third episode was split off and released as a stand-alone game, named Commander Keen in Aliens Ate My Babysitter.

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6

Conquest of the New World is a highly addictive game. Newcomers should start out playing the tutorial which explains the way the game works and the battles. The tactical battles can also be practised by selecting the battle demo from the main menu.


Darklands

Microprose 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Darklands is partially an historic game, but also partially a fantasy game based on the medieval myths of the christianism, of witches and of goblins. With your party of four adventurers you go around the 15th century german empire in search of fame. You will travel around the country, being asked for tasks or asking for them in cities, scorting pilgrims, freeing villages from the pillages of raubritters (robber knights), getting rid of paganic dangers and goblins or even, if you want bigger tasks, looking for the places the sabbats are celebrated and giving an end to them.

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Industrialist Marshall Robner has been found dead in his library. The room had been locked from the inside, and an overdose of the anti-depressants he had been taking has been found in his blood. A clear case of suicide? The responsible inspector seems to think so. The deceased's lawyer provides you with an interesting piece of informaton: Only days earlier, Robner said he wanted to change his will. It never came to that. How does that fit into the suicide theory? You're asked to investigate once again to see if your colleague was right about what he found.


Death Gate

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Fantasy genre. Not exactly a haven for innovation. Ever since Tolkien's Lord of the Rings has been released in 1954, most authors have tried to imitate his style. Standards are set, the fans can't seem to get enough of these stereotype stories and characters.


Duke Nukem 3D

3D Realms Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

When Duke Nukem 3D was first released back in 1996, it took the video game industry by storm. At the time of its release, it was rare to find any game that had any sort of mature content, which in modern times is now commonplace, it followed the trails of the success of Doom, which saw Duke Nukem deviate away from its platforming roots to a much mature and darker first person shooter. The game takes place after the events of Duke Nukem II, where Duke returns from space and finds Earth overrun by aliens that are hell-bent on abducting all of Earth’s women and it’s up to Duke to save the day.


Dungeon Keeper

Bullfrog 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In this game, you can be the bad guy for a change and stand up against the good guys. In the admittedly cynical Dungeon Keeper, you become an underground dungeon master whose goal it is to conquer the world above by defeating and destroying the reigning knight. Because this goal cannot be reached all alone, you have to recruit and train as many monsters as possible in your dungeon.
