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.


Full Contact

Team 17 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Triads have murdered your whole family, so already as a young boy, you had to go into hiding. Training your fighting skills for decades, you only live for revenge. Until finally (as a white-haired man), you emerge to beat them all up. Not sure the Triad people will really see the link between some everyday murder they committed 50 years ago and that guy challenging them now, but anyway…


Full Throttle

Lucas Arts 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

To get this off my chest right from the start: I'm neither a teenager, nor in any sort of midlife crisis. Not the best prerequisites to enjoy a game about middle-aged, burly (and apparantely a little simple) men whose life consists of driving around on comical, impractical vehicles. At the risk of being beaten to pulp to bald guys with beer bellies: bikers are not cool!


Fury

Firebird 1986
Genre: Action, Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4

Don't worry, this is not a cheesy game revolving around a horse and an annoying child (I'm watching too much TV). This Fury is a Lode Runner version with a small twist. Instead of searching for treasure, the player is put in the role of one of the few survivors of an atomic war. Like the others, he lives underground to avoid death from radiation. However, there are also evil mutants in these caverns who must be destroyed (it's "us or them" apparently). So the objective is not getting rich, but killing the mutants.


Fury of the Furries

Kalisto / Mindscape 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Fury of the Furries is one of the best platform games of the time. You control small, lovely, furry balls with hands and feet, called Tinies. The objective is to overthrow 'The Wicked One', who has captured the king and turned all other Tinies into mindless beasts.

Chances are high that if you are a kid of the 80s, one of your first contacts to the world of video gaming was in the form of a Game & Watch game. If this name shouldn’t trigger flashbacks to black and grey gaming action with noisy beeping sounds: This was one of the most famous series of handheld electronic games. All of them consisted of just one game, which ran on a somewhat tiny LCD screen (think old pocket calculator), were the sprites appeared in predefined places. While the detailed cut-out characters were far superior to the very blocky graphics of contemporary video games, the lack of freedom of movement made for some very basic game concepts – most of the time you just had to jump between more or less safe spaces. As primitive as this might sound, back in the days they were actually pretty entertaining and handy too. Just imagine carrying around your games in palm sized plastic cases instead of being stuck with one of those old desktops! Besides at a price of 10-20$ they were actually affordable for kids and teens.


Game of Worlds Tournament

Ade McT 2016
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

I've never been into trading card games, as I believe they are a total commercial rip-off. Buy to win. After playing this one, I see the strategic appeal, however. The player takes part as a wild card participant in an intergalactic tournament. Nobody would bet a dime on him. Round by round, he challenges opponents and with that, the status quo of the ruling society (or something…).


Gargoyle's Quest

Capcom 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Game Boy

Thanks to the bad guy coming back from the hell for hellish things or wherever he was, the realm of the ghouls is in danger. In DANGER! And you know what that means: kill anything that moves while you go randomly from a place to another.


Gargoyle's Quest 2: The Demon Darkness

Rating: 4/6

System: NES

The ghoul realms is under attack again. Who is behind this? The same bad guy from the previous one. And that's not the only familiar thing here, taking a closer look this looks more like a remake. So come and try Gargoyle's Quest: Cheap Second Part.


Garrison

System: C64

Aaah...Gauntlet! Probably one of the most popular games ever to populate the face of this earth. The moments when 'blue wizard needs help' made me lose a huge amount of time on my good ol' C64.
