Ancients I: Death Watch

ancients101.png
Farrware 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

It is very rare to find a shareware first-person roleplaying game. Ancients I: Death Watch is just that. Clearly copied from Bard's Tale with a few minor improvements and a much weaker story, Ancients is a second-tier game at best, but still interesting and entertaining enough to keep you playing for a few days. The game is designed in first person, where a group of four adventurers explores a city and various dungeons that are accessible from the houses. Featuring graphics comparable with the first Bard's Tale, mapping the city is quite difficult, and it does not get much better in the dungeons.


Ancients II: Approaching Evil

Farrware 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

It is very unusual for a relatively unsuccessful game like Ancients I to have a sequel. Ancients II: Approaching Evil simply increases the scope of the original game, but offers little else.

Ancients II is a shareware first-person roleplaying game, where you take charge of a group of adventurers and travel the land, vanquishing the monsters. As is the case with the first part, I could not find a coherent story or the ultimate goal in this game. It is as if the designers were creating only a demo for a game engine and forgot to fill in a story. Or maybe the engine did not allow a quest system. Either way, the lack of the story makes the game very repetitive and boring.


Andromeda Apocalypse

Marco Innocenti 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Andromeda Apocalypse is a sequel to Andromeda Awakening, a game which, ironically, should really have had this one's title, because… you know… it was about the apocalyptic destruction of a whole world. The actual Apocalypse, on the other hand, is a rather slow-paced exploration game set in an abandoned space station (strictly speaking, it's a space ship, but of huge proportions). Strange naming aside, although there is a strong continuity between the games, it is not absolutely necessary to have played the predecessor.


Andromeda Awakening

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

One of the planet's three suns is threatening all life as we know it. You are one of the few people who knows about it. On the way to the institute where you're supposed to try and save the world, disaster strikes already: Earthquakes destroy much of the subway system, killing all your fellow passengers. But these quakes also carve the way into a long-forgotten underworld full of machines and artifacts dating back to the early days of colonisation – and even before that.

Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Tapuak] Anno 1602 is a classic city building sim. You're founding a settlement in a world of islands, and develop it by providing space to live and necessary goods to the citizens. In mission mode, you have to fulfill single tasks, but in free play, it's your final goal to beat your opponents from the surrounding cities to achieve sovereign rule over the islands. At the beginning, you choose a appropriate island to found your first settlement. Right from the start, you have to deliver basic goods to your people.

Anvil of Dawn

Dreamforge 1995
Genre: RPG
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This is a little dungeon crawler where you embark on a quest, as usual. A quest for what you say? A quest for something big to help against the invading evil warlord. It’s the usual deal: you get a weapon, a few spells and many enemies to kill and corridors to crawl around, only this time it occupies a CD.


Arcade Pool

Team 17 1994
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Not all sports translate well to the computer. Pool, in particular, is tricky, because it is essentially a geometry game. A computer player could easily pocket every single ball perfectly, as it could precompute the trajectories of all balls. Human players could be supported by showing exactly what would end up where before a shot is committed. Though where would be the fun in all of that?

Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura

Arcanum00.jpg
Troika Games / Sierra 2001
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

At first glance Arcanum looks like a role playing game full of great ideas: Its main attraction is its fantasy world, which is set at the time of an industrial revolution, that is about to turn it into a science fiction setting. It is a refreshingly unique place, full of whimsical magic and technical marvels, that has great potential for interesting twists to age-old cliches: How does an ageless being, like an elf, react to the rise of science, which is about to make the magic, that has kept him alive so far, obsolete? Is there a cheaper workforce than orcs, which can be exploited at will, for they are obviously evil and therefore deserve no less? Or what about safety: Should a wizard, whose magical power has an unpredictable effect on machines, be allowed to get close to steam engines or trains? There are so many new stories that could be told…


Archipelagos

Logotron 1989
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Archipelagos is a strategy game where the player has to clear islands of the poisonous "Blood of the Ancients". In order to achieve this, the player has to find a certain number of stones on the computer generated islands which then must be destroyed. Once this is done, the player must find an obelisk and destroy it as well to bring about peace and tranquility again for the island.
