Orion Burger

dos32a_000.png
Sanctuary Woods / Eidos Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
The galaxy's leading burger chain has found an amazing business model. Instead of growing the necessary ingredients, a time and money consuming process, they just harvest them from existing planets. One complete planet at a time, leaving the world barren and lifeless, Galactus-style. Their next target is a planet called "Earth", supposedly the host of a particularly protein-rich species called "humans". Perfect for burger meat!

Outlaw

Atari 1978
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

You are in the middle of a duel, in the middle of the Wild West, in the middle of an Atari game. And all you have on your side is a revolver with bouncing bullets. No more, this is after all an Atari game, so it requires no more.


Outrun

Unlimited Software / Sega 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Remember those old coin-ops where you sat in a cage that rocked with you as you raced a car? The first one I came across and was immediately fascinated with was called Outrun. You were racing a Ferrari Testarrossa through cities, along beaches and over mountains. The sound, video and chair movement were so realistic that even before I sat in a real car, I knew how to drive (or so I thought). Outrun for PC is the best Sega could do to convert the original game.


P.C. Fuzz

J. Gamon 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Alright, this is definitely a weird one. You play a policeman 'driving' through town on a unicycle, with a blue rotating light attached to his helmet. Your only weapon is a truncheon which can be thrown either straight or up. Don't worry, it always comes back like a boomerang.


P.O.D.

Mastertronic 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4

P.O.D. - Proof Of Destruction. A game in which you're indestructable? Great idea, will take advantage of that immediately! Nah, nah, you can't hurt me, evil monsters! Oops? What was that 'boom' sound? Aw, crap - look for yourself what happened :(

This is a fraud! It clearly said 'Proof Of Destruction' on the box. I demand my money back!


Pacific General

SSI 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The series returns to its original theme: the second world war. Instead of the European/North African setting, this game tackes the Pacific theatre, however. With few changes to the underlying engine (there are now day and night changes in addition to weather etc.), (mainly) US and Japanese armies fight for world supremacy.


Pacific Islands

Empire Simulation 1992
Genre: Action, Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The publisher Empire Software published Pacific Islands in the year 1992 for MS-DOS and thereby created a sequel to the predecessor Team Yankee from the year 1990. The game is a cross between strategy, logistics and tank simulation in which the player takes the role of the western powers in order to liberate a fictive atoll called Yama-Yama from the Sovjets.


Packman

? 1987
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is a solid Pacman clone from 1987. It has all the standard elements, and not too many (if any) new ones.

You control Packman in his never-ending quest to get all those dots. Why he wants them: beats me. Four ghosts always want to get you: stay out of their way or eat one of the big dots and start eating them. Occasionally, bonus fruit appears, eat it for yet more points. The objective, of course, is to get as many points as possible. The four ghosts have the exact same color, so they can't be distinguished. If you get all 180 dots on a level, then you go on to the next one.


Panzer General

pg01.png
SSI 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A classic of turn-based strategy games which became the basis for a long series of similar games. But none of them could match the quality of the original.

You can surely question to take World War II as the background for a game but that´s not going to be discussed in this review. Instead let´s move on o the game itself: The player, a high-ranking general, takes control either of the Allied or Axis forces. There are single scenarios and whole campaigns which mostly are based on historical battles.


Panzer General II

PG2_1.png
SSI 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The well-known classics' sequel which is even a tad better than the original. Overall, this sequel only differs in very few areas, so sharp tongues could claim that it basically just consists of new scenarios. This is, however, not the same – more about that later.
