Avalon

01.png
Hewson Consultants 1984
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

The Dark Ages are closing in. You are a wandering lore-seeker in 5th century Britain. Oh look, you've been given a magical staff and a map, and for some wild reason you must now travel to Isle of Glass (Avalon?). There at the foot of the Glass Hill you shall dispatch your soul undeground into dismal dungeons to remotely locate and banish Avelach the Lord of Chaos, who according to this old witch's prophecy shall soon bring down terrible calamities and the end of the world as we know it. Firstly, though, you must overcome his perplexing maze and its ghastly denizens to prove yourself a skilled sorcerer and a worthy opponent...


Avoid the Noid

California Merchandising Concepts, Inc. 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

For a game thats sole purpose is to advertise a pizza company, it is surprisingly full featured. Avoid the Noid features 10 different levels with 3 floors each and an extra level that includes a rooftop. The goal of the game is to reach the top floor and deliver the pizza to Doom Industries without running into a noid. A noid is an advertising character featured in Domino's commercials back in the 80s who appears as a small man wearing a red skin-tight suit with bunny ears. His sole purpose is to annoy you and prevent you from delivering your pizza in time.

Licence: Freeware
System: C64

Just one more package to deliver before going home. Thankfully, the receptionist takes it. Phew, just down the elevator again… woah, what was that? An explosion? Everything goes black. Some time later, you wake up again, in the middle of some signs of destruction. Nobody's there anymore. What has happened and how to get out of there?


ああ播磨灘

Sega 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

Raging obesity is not such a huge issue in Japan compared to countries like the USA or Russia (though I hear McDonald's is gaining foothold). Ironically enough, they nevertheless have a strange obsession with Sumo Wrestling over there – two incredibly fat guys basically turning into a big mass of jelly.


B.A.T. II

ESP / Ubi Soft 1992
Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Bureau of Astral Troubleshooters, an intergalactiv secret police, had already made a name for themselves in the episodic, self-titled first game. Now it is time for the big job: The Koshan conglomerate has come into a monopoly position as the only supplier of a resource of galactic importance. Through foul play, of course. B.A.T. has already sent one agent to Koshan's base planet, but in spite of a seemingly perfect cover story, she seems to have been detected. So the player goes after her, to save her, but also to finish the mission.


B.C. Kid

Factor 5 / Hudson Soft 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Conversions of console games to computers often go wrong. Translations of Japanese games just as often. With B.C. Kid, it went surprisingly smooth. It first appeared on the PC Engine and had (for 'western' tongues) a really strange name. The English version became 'Bonk'. Bonk? To make a long story short, the Amiga version got a better title when it was ported by the German company Factor 5 a few years later.


Back to Skool

backtoskool01.png
Microsphere 1985
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Last year, schoolboy Eric managed to steal his report card from the headmaster's safe. He has taken his time to forge a positive one. Now it's time to get it back into the safe.

A lot has happened on the school grounds over the holidays. It has been split in two sections: a boys school and a girls school (with a fence between them). The boys' building (the only part which could be seen in the prequel Skool Daze) has been expanded, too. There are now more classrooms, more offices, a new assembly hall and (perhaps the most useful innovation) a bathroom. The school has also bought a new safe to replace the old one. This one doesn't have a combination of numbers, but a simple lock. But where has the key been hidden?


Backstage

Art Department 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

A local radio station is holding a competition: answer five questions about (male) rockstar 'Alex X. Pose' (for the younger readers: the singer of a then popular band called Guns 'n' roses was called 'Axl Rose') to win a romantic candlelightdinner with him. Our (male) hero is keen to be the chosen one. Yes... you'd better ignore the homoerotic elements of this story. Anyway, let's just say our protagonist is a huge fan, ok?

Balance of Power - The 1990 Edition

bop_000.png
Chris Crawford 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Balance of Power is almost a simulation of the cold war. As one of the two major superpowers (USA or USSR) you try to gain influence without starting a nuclear war.
The rest of the world is serving as a playground for the enemies. Other countries are not directly conquered but you try to get the respective government on your side or to overthrow it.
