Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues

Team 17 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The '92 Special Edition, being only a budget release, obviously didn't bring much new to the Alien Breed series. The Horror Continues, on the other hand, was announced as the proper sequel and placed in the normal price range, so expectations should be higher. Does it fulfil these expectations? Well, to say it right away, it's a mixed bag.


Alien Breed Special Edition 1992

Team 17 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
One year later: our heroes are back at another space station infested by aliens again. This time, it's a bit larger, spanning ten fairly large (all new) levels. Though it isn't Alien Breed II – it's "just" the Special Edition of the first part.

Alien Breed: Tower Assault

Team 17 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

After three so-so games in three years, you should really think that expectations for the fourth Alien Breed would be low. I'm all the happier to report that with Tower Assault, Team 17 finally got their act together. It is the last one of the classic series, and also its pinnacle. Finally a game which can really be recommended. Why is that?

Alley Cat

Synapse Software / IBM 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This early IBM PC masterpiece is Billy Williams' 1984 port of his 8-bit Atari game of the previous year.

The game starts in an alley with trash cans, moving clothes lines and randomly opening windows. You climb up and avoid dogs, mice bites and junk flying out of the windows to enter one of five types of rooms. You might dive into a fishbowl to catch fish among electric eels, chase mice hiding in a huge wedge of cheese, tiptoe between a room full of sleeping dogs to eat their food, drop a birdcage and catch the canary, or knock over vases on top of a bookshelf guarded by a spider.

This is the summary of an analysis of Alleyway. The goal of the survey was to determine if this Game Boy launch title stands the test of time. The review process was the following: After an initial online research the game was tested thoroughly in its original environment and a simulation.

Allied General

SSI 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Allied General – SSI's cash-in sequel to the Panzer General success. The original's roles are simply reversed: instead of the Axis powers, you play the Allied side. Oh, and it's on Windows, i.e. more difficult to get to run these days. Great, thanks!


Alone in the Dark

Infogrames 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is loosely based on H.P. Lovecrafts works. So you can expect a decent horror atmosphere. And that's what the game is all about: the atmosphere! It is created mainly be the presentation. The graphics are an attempt to be as movie-like as possible. You're playing in third-person perspective. The perspective changes depending on the spot where your alter ego stands. You are of course always visible, but from different directions and angles! When walking around you sometimes have the feeling of real movie-cuts.
