Prehistorik 2

00.png
Titus Interactive 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Ooga Booga Bang Bang! Me hungry, me go find food, me good! And so you, an awfully starving caveman, set out for a long perilous journey to gather as much edible (and non-edible) objects as you could possibly or impossibly carry away. Armed with a club you work your way through wild mountainous terrain and tropical jungle swarming with ferocious birds, animals and other baddies who don't quite sympathize with your noble aspiration. But regardless of that, time or weather conditions, you're driven forward by one and only passionate desire: to stuff your belly until it wants no more, which is apparently a little more than average human being can swallow. Good luck and bon appetit, Mr. Glutton!


Premier Manager

Gremlin Graphics 1992
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Released roughly at the same time as the first Championship Manager, Premier Manager was different enough to attract its own crowd of fans. This game has started a battle that, in a sense, rages until today: a battle between two styles of soccer management games. Where Championship Manager was heavy on different statistics and on putting together to optimal squad for each match, Premier Manager by Gremlin, and later its spiritual successors ? Premier League Manager and Total Club Manager series by EA ? took on a more user-friendly approach and mixed in the business and training aspects of managing a soccer team.


Premier Manager 2

Gremlin 1993
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Premier Manager 2 is a nice football manager game with many different features. Up to two players can select a team which is always starting in Englands lowest division, the Conference League. From here you have to battle your way up or you could also choose to coach another, higher placed team.


Premier Manager 3

Gremlin 1995
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The third part of this series is very much similar to the second part so I just want to point out the major differences. For a more thorough description of the game concept itself have a look at the review of Premier Manager 2 on this site.


Premiere

Core Design 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A movie has been stolen – save the premiere by retrieving it. In the usual spirit of the genre, this is just an excuse for regular Jump & Run gameplay: The 'plot' only defines the setting; in this case, a film studio. Which, in turn, is yet another excuse to have some out-of-this-world settings: Apart from the 'behind the sets' levels, there are, among other things, haunted castles, a giant room and a space level.


Primal Rage

Probe / Time Warner Interactive 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pre-historic monstrosities fight for supremacy as the new god of a postapocalyptic earth (now "Urth"). The few remaining humans gather around these creatures, worshipping them. For which they are thanked by serving as emergency food should life energy ever run low. Well, at least this is what you'd expect if you played the original arcade version…


Prince

Frames / Arc Software Publishing 1989
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Touted as a "wargame for people who don't usually play wargames", Prince is one of the many attempts to make the genre more appealing to a broader audience by adding attractive graphics, easy mouse controls and make the gameplay a little less complex (or more shallow, depending on your point of view). It is also one of the many in the long line of games to have tried this and failed.


Prince of Persia

Broderbund Software 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Somewhere in Arabian Nights-style Persia… You are a young lad who's been imprisoned in a dungeon by the wicked hand of Jaffar the Sorcerer who also happens to be the missing Sultan's unfaithful Grand Vizier, wishing covetously to take the ruler's place by marrying his unwilling daughter, who also happens to be your soulmate. Having thus disposed of you, lest you meddle with his evil plans for coup d'etat, he locks the princess in the castle tower and threatens to kill her if she keeps refusing him. It's up to you now to save the princess from impending doom, defeat Jaffar and finally bring peace to the kingdom of Persia. But first you need to help yourself out of this stinking place full of brutal traps, pitfalls and certain unfriendly figures, and all you got is… precisely 1 hour!


Prisoner of Ice

Infogrames 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Prisoner of Ice holds a special place in my heart, because it's one of the last three games I've ever bought for 'full price'. I ordered it immediately after it came out. So quickly that there weren't any walkthroughs for it. Remember those were the days when Internet access was unthinkable, and even if I had had it, I probably wouldn't have found any cheat sites/newsgroups/mailboxes. The only way to get solutions for games was with next month's computer magazine. That one wouldn't arrive before three weeks. I was on my own to successfully play the game. Not that I usually use walkthroughs to finish Adventures, but it gives a good feeling of security to have one lying around...


Private Eye

01.png
Simon & Schuster Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Little Sister has always had it tough. The novel was released when the hard-boiled detective fiction was already on a downturn. Hollywood was moving away from it as well, so unlike all the previous Marlowe stories, it was not made into a film until twenty years later. At a time when Humphrey Bogart definitely wasn't available anymore. And it even lost its title, being called just Marlowe. Though make no mistake, don't even let the appearance of Bruce Lee on the cast list distract you – both the novel and the film are a little underrated.
