NHL Hockey

nhl_01.png
Electronic Arts 1993
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In 1993 'NHL Hockey' started off the famous NHL-Series which has seen a new version almost every following year. They all offer great gameplay, the original teams and players of the NHL and great grafic and sound. From the starting menu you can choose whether you want to play an exhibition game, a season or a playoff round or have a look at the various statistics. There you can view the real 1992/93 stats or the ones of your season. The 1992/93 season which is represented in the game saw just 20 teams compete for the Stanley Cup, divided into four divisions. You can select to re-play the actual schedule or create a random one. You can also set up the rules to your likings. For example you could select no offside or no penalties and of course the length of a period. Up to 20 human players can take over the teams, either on the same PC or by transferring game data on disks. When you have chosen a team you can start your first game.


Night Trap

Digital Pictures / Sega 1992
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

This might as well be called a review of the reviews of this particular game, seeing that it still seems to provoke quite an emotional reaction with many of those people who care enough to actually write something about it down. Apparently, it caused quite a stir in North America when it was first released, leading up to parliamentary hearings about moral standards in video games – that getting regularly ridiculed in most of said retrospective reviews.


Ninja Kage

Hudson Soft 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: MSX

Has it ever occured to you that the way of a true ninja can be a tough row to hoe? Especially if all you can do is throwing shurikens. One, two, five, dozen shurikens, all in all a heavy task when you are attacked by myriads of other ninja who do exactly the same thing. Now, are you tough enough to take on them all? Will you survive in this vicious battle?


No Greater Glory: The Civil War

SSI 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A word of warning first: If you're not willing to spend at least a couple of frustrating weeks learning the very basics of a game before you can survive the first few turns, this game isn't for you. No Greater Glory is one of the last truly 'expert' wargames - a genre very popular in the 1980s. If you give it time to grow on you, chances are you'll grow to love it.


Noctropolis

Flashpoint Productions / Electronic Arts 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Noctropolis - city of darkness. Home of the superhero Darksheer, the archenemy of every villain out there. Peter Grey's favourite place to escape to from his full life as the owner of a less-than-successful book store. You guessed it: Darksheer is a comicbook in the style of the so-called 'golden age' or 'silver age' of comics.


Normality

norm_000.png
Gremlin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Normality throws the player into a dystopian metropolis leaning towards the psychedelic. Right in the middle of it, you take over the role of a teenager in his fourties called Kent who finds himself in his flat which has gone under in total chaos. Due to the game being classified as appropriate for six-year-olds, there are no beer bottles, porn magazines or even a huge, filthy bong to be found. Instead, there is just a boob tube, a dripping faucet and a permanently nodding tumbler bird. The run-down gloominess of Neutropolis does not fit with the good-natured and carefree mind of the protagonist.


North & South

nands01.png
Infogrames 1989
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] North & South was the first Amiga game on this website. It was a conscious choice: For me, it always represented an era of graphically attractive and relatively lightweight, but fun games. It had always been one of my favourites when it came to wasting half an hour with a friend. Even today, it reminds me of more innocent times…


Ökolopoly

oeko01.png
Frederic Vester 1989
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Every time I think of this game, I have to giggle. Falling back into childhood mentally like this has a very good reason. When the game first came out, I was still quite young. One guy who went to school with me kept talking about this game, obviously very fond and proud of it. Later, it turned out his enthusiasm was caused by a simple reason: His father had forbidden him to play computer games in general, but he had made an exception for this one - Ökolopoly was the only game he was allowed to play, so he had to pretend it's cool. And now that I've written it down, I can be sure I'll never forget this amusing anecdote myself...


Ollie Ollie Oxen Free

Carolyn VanEseltine 2013
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Herr M.] Ollie Ollie Oxen Free is the name to a game of hide and seek with a special, slightly grim twist: The school, were you work as a teacher, is attacked, seemingly out of nowhere and by unknown enemies. Soon after you have to cope with the difficult task to search the ruins for your students in a severely weakened shape.


Olympic Games 92'

games_000.png
Opera / True Emotions 1992
Genre: Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Even if I’m not a fan of Olympics games, I had to give a chance to this one. After all, it is one of those game that when you played as a kid you found them fun, no matter it was from a genre you didn’t like. Maybe it’s due to Opera being behind it, a Spanish company from it’s software golden age, which knew how to make a fun game.
