Knight Games

English Software 1986
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

The Middle Ages: was it an age of chivalry and knights in shining armors? Or a dark age of oppression and plague? We'll maybe never know for sure. One thing is for sure though: people liked brawling back then - just like today! And that makes all the other questions completely useless and uninteresting!


Labyrinth

Lucasfilm Games / Activision 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

There were Adventure games before SCUMM and aside from Sierra's endless Quests. Lucasfilm's first own foray into the genre was Labyrinth - an official offshoot of the movie of the same name (starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly).


Law of the West

Accolade 1986
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

You know what would suck even more than living in a town where everyone does not only own a gun and always walks around carrying it, but is also trigger happy? Being the person who is obliged to uphold law and order in such a town. However, in a computer game where the worst thing which can happen to you is the game over screen, it can actually turn into fun.


Mafia

Igelsoft 1986
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

You may smile ironically about the graphics of C64 games. You may even consider them ugly. I won't protest much. In fact, I have to confess I don't value the 'multimedia' capabilities of this computer too highly myself. I can understand everyone who appreciates these extremely blocky looks, but I've been 'socialized' by other machines mainly. One thing is undeniable, though: The C64 had and still has the most creative 'user scene'! Even today, new programs are being written by the followers of this small computer, some even released commercially.


Marble Madness

Electronic Arts 1986
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Marble Madness was one of the first games on the new and fresh Amiga system. And what a way to get a system started! Although the game was also released for pretty much every other system out there at the time, it was the Amiga version which outshone them all. Closest to the original arcade machine (and even with the two player feature), it showed off the new computer's technical capabilities perfectly. A killer application, especially considering the direct competitor, the Atari ST, only had a greatly inferior port.

The player takes over the role of an American detective who has attained some fame by solving tough cases.

New York. Late afternoon. You were relaxing in your office muffled in clouds of tranquilizing smoke issuing from your cigar, your feet resting on that tiny spot of your desk luckily unoccupied by exorbitant piles of inconclusive evidence and other 3rd rate material you would never tend to, and enjoying in quiet solitary bliss what little was left of your coffee break... suddenly the blower went insane disrupting your sweet oblivion. "Detective X speaking", "X, we have received information regarding an audio tape finally proving the local mobster guilty of smuggling, blackmail and 1st degree murder. Hit the road on the double and locate the girl calling us - she knows where the tape is stashed and will take you to the mob's headquarters. Be careful though, the place is heavily guarded!", "Roger". Ok, bub, time to slip into your trenchcoat and show us some good MOVIE. Lights, Camera, Action!

P.O.D. - Proof Of Destruction. A game in which you're indestructable? Great idea, will take advantage of that immediately! Nah, nah, you can't hurt me, evil monsters! Oops? What was that 'boom' sound? Aw, crap - look for yourself what happened :(

This is a fraud! It clearly said 'Proof Of Destruction' on the box. I demand my money back!
