1830: Railroads & Robber Barons

1830_000.png
Avalon Hill 1995
Genre: Simulation, Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A good adaptation of the classic board game. No doubt the port to computer from the tabletop was done in response to Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon, a game co-created by one of the designers of the board game original. It is honestly probably still one of the most accurate adaptations of the golden age of railroading in America, showing clearly how the early robber barons bought up earlier, smaller, less profitable companies, and used them to construct huge lines - additionally, it's heavy focus on the stock market is quite realistic, something that the Railroad Tycoon series never quite got 100% right. Whereas the Railroad Tycoon series always had model railroad simulation elements, 1830 focuses solely on the business aspects. It is possible to win a game without even running a railroad!


A-Train

Artdink / Maxis 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A-Train is a railroad-themed city-building game with a heavy business-management focus originally created by Japanese developer Artdink and published in English by Maxis in 1992. Although part of a popular series in Japan, enjoyment of this title is sometimes hampered by a smattering of design flaws, which notwithstanding, still make for an entertaining and engaging city-builder that is under-known and underappreciated. Despite this, A-Train failed to capture the imagination of the English-speaking world and was relegated to a legacy as one of Maxis' lesser known titles forever in the shadow of Sim City and its cohorts.


Abrams Battle Tank

Dynamix 1988
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The M-1 Abrams is by far the most advanced tank in the current battlefield. While still using manual loading, everything else in the tank is very modern, making it a most formidable opponent. Originally designed for the European theater of war, the Abrams was, ironically, first deployed in the Persian Gulf for the Desert Storm. There, it proved to be one of the decisive weapons in the US military arsenal. While always on the forefront of the action, very few vehicles were damaged, and not a single member of the tank crew was killed. The Abrams proved both in long-range and short-range combat. In the long range, the tank could find and hit Iraqi tanks that were dug into the desert sand from a distance where the Iraqis didn't even see them. In its first skirmish, the tank proved itself in short range as well, when eight US tanks took out 38 Iraqi Republican Guard tanks. In addition to all, this, the Abrams was very safe. At one instance, shot from a point blank range into the side by an Iraqi tank, none of the tank crew was killed.


Abuse

Crack dot com 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You are the last chance against the abuse, a virus that transforms people on horrible monsters, a creation of illegal experiments being made on the prison where you were yet another prisoner. Everybody is now infected, except you, and stopping the infection from spreading to the world won't be easy. I mean it, this is really hard, an action game that is not so much about blowing up enemies as it is about escaping and avoiding being blown up by the ants, your enemies who like flooding the places with their assaults and their shots.


Aces of the Pacific

Dynamix 1992
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Aces of the Pacific' is a very good air combat simulation which takes place in the Pacific in 1941-1945. A large variety of combat missions, airplanes, periods to start and realism settings guarantee almost infinite replayability.


Aces Over Europe

Dynamix 1993
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

That 'Aces over Europe' is kind of a sequel to 'Aces of the Pacific' becomes obvious at first sight. Graphfically nothing has changed, just some more sounds have been added; each plane has its own engine noise now. But nevertheless it's better than 'AotP' because most of its minor flaws have been removed.

Alias 'The Magpie'

Alias00.png
J. J. Guest 2018
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Good humour takes proper setup and precise timing: Leading up to and delivering a punchline is an art form of its own which is harder to master than most people tend to believe. Yet it is one of the most important skills that separates the amateur jokester from the true comedian. Of course this is also what makes or brakes any video game that tries to make its audience laugh and it is especially the adventure game genre that has a tradition of delivering prime examples to both the best and the worst in comedy. One of the former is Alias 'The Magpie', a piece of interactive fiction telling the story of a hilarious art heist in a masterful way.
