Death Rally

rally_000.png
Apogee / Remedy Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It may seem strange at first, but having a machine gun mounted on your car makes perfect sense. After all, what better way to keep an overtaking car from getting ahead? How about mines for those tailing you too closely? This is no ordinary competition, you know. And if you want to make it all the way to the top, you must be willing to drive into some gray territory.


Lode Runner

Brøderbund 1983
Genre: Action, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 400/800

In the Early Days™, computer games were still very much influenced by arcade games. Half of that is true for Lode Runner. The gameplay concerns a small figure running across platforms which are connected through ladders. It is collecting treasures while avoiding contact with the bad guys (the Bungelings). This sort of thing would work very well in an arcade environment.


Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament

Codemasters 1995
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Your car skids as you take the turn at full speed. Two cars are left behind, but there’s still a third one right beside you. Both of you speed to the narrow passage ahead, but a giant pea makes you lose control of the car, which bumps against your opponent’s and both fall off the table. Shouting, laughing and shoulder-punching, you get back to the keyboard just in time to go on with the race.


Micro Machines V3

Codemasters 1998
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Where between the first and the second part, only a very short time had passed, Codemasters took a couple of years to finally deliver 'V3' of their popular Micro Machines series. Conceptually, it had been pretty much maxed out already. So let's see what groundbreaking innovations they have come up with!


Pinball Illusions

Digital Illusions / 21st Century Entertainment 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As a kid I never liked video game pinballs. All hopes of recreating the light and sound effects, and the excitement of hitting targets with the silver ball were gone in their pixel-based counterparts. Landscape-oriented monitors and TVs were a big hurdle, as well as the primitive physics models of those first games. There were, of course, exceptions such as Night Mission Pinball by SubLOGIC (the company behind Flight Simulator II), which offered realistic ball control, but still came painfully short on the visuals department.


Space Taxi

Muse 1984
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

It’s 1984. USA and the USSR race each other to space. Arcades are plagued with games about starships, aliens, and space exploration. So the moment you booted Space Taxi on a Commodore 64, the brand new computer released just two years earlier, and saw the loading screen with an ordinary yellow cab with landing pads, you knew you were up to have some real fun with this tongue-in-cheek action/puzzle game by Muse.


Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?

Broderbund 1987
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? is the second installment in the series. This time, as the name suggests, you’ll be chasing Carmen’s band around the USA, hopefully learning different facts about the country’s culture and geography.
