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.


Buggy Boy

Elite 1988
Genre: Sport
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, C64

Buggy Boy is a simple, but nevertheless captivating car racing game released in 1988. In spite of racing solely against the clock. And supporting just one single player. Nothing of which seriously damages the game's fun factor.


Ports of Call

Klein & Ulrich 1987
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

It is the year 1987... the year of a game by Sparks and Beethoven, aka Martin Ulrich and Rolf-Dieter Klein, which became a cult classic almost immediately. I have to confess I cannot evaluate the game in an objective way, because I was immediately spellbound.


Sixth Sense Investigations

CineTech 1998
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Amiga family of computers weren't blessed with the gems Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max. ScummVM was still a few years away. Fortunately, there are always creative people to fill such gaping gaps. Enter Sixth Sense Investigations - the Lucas Arts game not made by Lucas Arts.
