Heroes of Might and Magic

heroes_000.png
New World Computing 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

King's Bounty got a facelift and was combined with the popular Might and Magic series in what somebody thought it was a nice idea. And I don't say it wasn't, they took one strategy game that didn't fare so well and revived it with their best-selling franchise, a common move. It's just that I doubt they expected this to end being their new best-selling series.


HeroQuest

Gremlin 1991
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

Ah, Hero Quest... We all spent countless hours playing the board game! I still remember the christmas in Hotel Dorint in Hameln when my brother got it. We spent half of our time there playing it. Of course we were genious enough to use the blank map to create our own quest with a permanent and water resistant pen. And the rest of the time we played.... ummmmm...... hockey in the corridor! But back to Hero Quest.


Herrscher

herrsche_000.png
Mr Creosote 1999
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

A remake of the C64 classic Imperator.

Written as a school project together with another wannabe programmer in Turbo Pascal. It's not quite as complex as the original, but still quite nice in multiplayer mode. Unfortunately, the second (extended) version never made it past the planning stage.


Hexuma – Das Auge des Kal

Weltenschmiede / Software 2000 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The development team Weltenschmiede made three text adventures, of which Hexuma is the final one. As that, it has got one major problem: The novelty of a decent German language which had carried Das Stundenglas had worn off when this one came out two years later. So it had to be judged entirely by its raw gameplay and writing qualities, in a time when a text adventure was already widely regarded as an anachronism.


Hexx

Psygnosis 1994
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

An evil wizard has sealed away the gods of the kingdom. Why? Who cares, you are here to kill him as otherwise a horrible thing will happen or something. And by the way don't forget to kill anything that moves.


Hidden Agenda

Springboard 1988
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Regarding the topic, this is one of the most original games ever. It belongs to the once almost nonexistant and now completely deceased genre of politic simulations. While most representatives of this limit themselves to foreign affairs, Hidden Agenda concentrates mainly on domestic policy and its effect on international relationships.


History Line 1914-1918

Blue Byte 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This was most likely supposed to be the start of a series of historical games based on the Battle Isle engine. At least the subheading "1914-1918" points to that. Because there were no sequels, History Line as a bridge between Battle Isle 1 and 2 was forgotten quickly. Wrongly as I think. After all it is still an independent (good) game because of its peculiarities.


Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

Infocom 1987
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Finally. Finally I have the guts to put this up. My childhood love. My introduction to the Interactive Fiction world. Aah.

Based upon a world famous series of books by world renowned Science Fiction author Douglas Adams (who also wrote Starship Titanic, great game, it has the very best in sarcastic game humour you'll ever see), this game sets you as the loser Arthur Dent in one hell of a mess.


Hole in One Miniature Golf

01.png
Digitek Software 1989
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Miniature Golf, as all kinds of Pool, is essentially a geometry game. As such, it lends itself well to the computer game medium, as the way from cause to effect is a clear mathematical derivation. On the other hand, the issue lies with the computer-controlled players. Due to the very same nature of all possible actions being calculable, they could play perfectly, which of course wouldn't be a whole lot of fun to compete against. Though Miniature Golf, unlike Pool, can also be enjoyed without any opponent…
