A-Train

at_000.png
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.

Synapse Software / IBM 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This early IBM PC masterpiece is Billy Williams' 1984 port of his 8-bit Atari game of the previous year.

The game starts in an alley with trash cans, moving clothes lines and randomly opening windows. You climb up and avoid dogs, mice bites and junk flying out of the windows to enter one of five types of rooms. You might dive into a fishbowl to catch fish among electric eels, chase mice hiding in a huge wedge of cheese, tiptoe between a room full of sleeping dogs to eat their food, drop a birdcage and catch the canary, or knock over vases on top of a bookshelf guarded by a spider.


Alone in the Dark

Infogrames 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is loosely based on H.P. Lovecrafts works. So you can expect a decent horror atmosphere. And that's what the game is all about: the atmosphere! It is created mainly be the presentation. The graphics are an attempt to be as movie-like as possible. You're playing in third-person perspective. The perspective changes depending on the spot where your alter ego stands. You are of course always visible, but from different directions and angles! When walking around you sometimes have the feeling of real movie-cuts.
