Retro City Rampage

retro_city_rampage_001.png
VBLANK Entertainment 2012
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Retro City Rampage calls itself a parody. Putting the likely legal reasons for this badge aside, there are (broadly speaking) two kinds of parodies: biting satires and warmly affectionate ones. RCR clearly falls into the latter category. It is a tour de force crammed full of references to (mainly) 1980s pop culture, both in style and contents.


Return of Double Dragon

Technos 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

That's a game which doesn't require much talking about. The programmers intentionally left out an intro or a story as the subtitle says it all: 'The Sleeping Dragon has awoke.' Ah yes. In other words: 'The 1st part was quite successful so let's make more money.'


Return of the Phantom

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

We are on the late XX century, enjoying the opera at the famous Paris Opera House. But there is no peace nor enjoyment, as suddenly a long dead criminal comes back to murder and spread terror. The Phantom of the Opera has returned!


Return to Ringworld

Tsunami Games 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

After blowing the patriarch's attempt to destroy the fleet of worlds, and this means also after saving this fleet of worlds, the trio decides to lay down, and for that flees again to the Ringworld. Where also maybe they will continue with their search for Louis Wu, or maybe not.


Return to Zork

Infocom / Activision 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Text adventures and the 1990s are not exactly a standard association. Though if you think about it, Beyond Zork and Zork Zero had been released in the late 1980s, so when Return to Zork was announced, they were still relatively fresh in people's minds. As bad as Activision's image might have been with the old Infocom fans, they did try to keep the properties alive. Their previous attempt to bring one of the old classics into the present had, admittedly, crashed and burned: Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2 turned out to be a rushed, buggy mess. It was also the last time one of the original Infocom designers was involved in the design process.


Returned Racoon

Kyunghee University 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This game is extremely easy to learn and the interface is user friendly. It comes from Kyunghee University, South Korea, but you need not afraid of the language problem. The game is a bit known in that country, but it is almost unknown outside of South Korea. Yes, this game was made after the famous game Ponpoko (1982, made in Japan).

Rex Nebular, cosmic adventurer, delivers the valuable vase he was sent to retrieve to his employer Col. Stone. Walking into the office, he demands his payment. Gruffly, Stone asks how the mission has gone. Rex begins to tell his story...


Rick Dangerous

Core Design 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Indiana Jones action games by Lucasfilm aren't too popular for a reason: they're not very good. Real men are looking for alternatives - and a smart company provides one: Rick Dangerous.


Rick Dangerous II

Core Design 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Another ordinary action game. But what makes it special to me is the fact that I spent days, weeks and month in front of my Amiga playing this particular game!
Why? Well, to be honest mainly because it was available! I simply didn't have that many games back then. But beside the emotional component, there are also objective arguments for this game!


Ring Cycle

code_000.png
Maelstrom / Psygnosis 1996
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Anyone who has ever complained about Lords of Midnight 3 should play Ring Cycle. Granted, that may not be such a large group since not all that many have played the former game. Or even heard of it. Nevertheless, these selected few should give this game an honest try. Even if it is only to make themselves feel better about LoM. Much better! Using the game engine already deployed in LoM, Ring Cycle strips away the strategic aspects and goes for a pretty pure roleplaying approach. Maybe with a little 3D shooter mixed in.
