Energie-Manager

Rauser / BWMi 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

Just a little more than ten years ago (in 1993), there was no 'Internet' of today's proportions. Computer magazines coming with CDs full of stuff were still uncommon, too. To be exact, the first 'one-shot issues' of this kind appeared in early 1994 in Germany. So, 1993 was still a year of game demos being spread on floppy disks, and those were available on quite a few magazine covers.


Frontier: Elite 2

Gametek 1993
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Frontier is the sequel to The classic space trading game "Elite". Elite offered one of the first truly open ended games. A game of freedom where you could go and do whatever you pleased with no set storyline or levels. However Elite was also pretty dated by 1993, especially the original polygon wire looking BBC version. So Elite II hit the shelves.


Geheimprojekt DMSO

Art Department 1993
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

[Mr Creosote] "Geheimprojekt DMSO" is an Art Department graphic adventure, promoting the rheumatism medicaments by the company Merckle GmbH. Professor Scheiffele of the university of Ulm, who had been working in corresponding product research, has vanished. Right before that happened, he called his nephew Jack Bene for help via telegram. Now it's his task to find the professor and uncover the background of his disappearance.


Hannibal

Starbyte 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A German strategy game with decent graphics and intuitive controls? What a novel idea! Ok, there are exceptions - think of Battle Isle and The Settlers. Hannibal can't quite reach that high level, but it comes close enough…


Hattrick!

Ikarion Software 1995
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Germanies favourite minor matter - again - football! This game fell into my hands for 5 DM on a rummage table. Well, I could give it a try... ok, that try resulted in long late-night gaming sessions. Hattrick has one of the best user interfaces and features like the goal scenes, the articles about the games in the newspaper and the team of the day get you in the mood. Unfortunately, the game comes without a licence from the DFB, so the authors couldn't use the original names of the teams and the players, but there is an editor to rectify this.

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Well, who ever wasn't angry about watching a highly praised movie in the cinema which turned out to be quite bad? I guess everyone so with this game you have the chance to make movies with your own imagination. From the script up to the costumes you have all things in your hands.


Imperator

Thomas Wolf 1983
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Along with Kaiser, this game defined the 'ruler-genre' for years to come! The premise is simple: make your country strong and stable inwards to conquer your neighbours.

Fitting the name, Imperator is set in ancient Rome. Your main job is to distribute the budget amongst several groups of interest. Every year, they demand a certain sum and it's up to you whether to comply fully, partly or not at all. That influences this group's stance towards you. If you give your wife (!) only half the amount she wanted, she'll be more likely to start a rebellion. On the other hand, if you provide the merchants with even more money than they said, they'll love you!


Imperialism

Frog City / SSI 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Europe in the 19th century: military superpowers trying to take over the world. Whether it is direct wars and takeover of land or acquiration of 'colonies' - these were troubled times.

In several scenarios (defined by their starting date, each representing a slightly different historical situation) or on a random map, the players each take over one of the 'relevant' (i.e. powerful) countries trying to achieve total world domination. The final step for this is to be elected by the one of the council meetings which occur on a regular basis.


Imperialism 2: The Age of Exploration

Frog City / Mindscape 1999
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Going back in time... after the period of time which is commonly referred to as 'Imperialism', the series tackles the European takeover of the American continent (or a random world substituting for the 'real' one).


Imperium

Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

So, what makes this game so 'dry'? Well, just look at the screenshots. Apart from the 3D starmap everything is white and gray. Furthermore there's no sound. 'Why play this game then?', some of you might say. WAIT! You're about to miss a great game...As I said, it's a very complex and deep game, but luckily I've managed to find the manual for detailed information.
