1869

1869_000.png
Max Design 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

In 1869, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born. To be able to visit him faster from England, the Suez Canal, connecting the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, was opened the same year. In 1869, Austria was still located at the Mediterranean Sea. Today, Austria is not located at the Mediterranean Sea anymore, but this is not related to Max Design having gone under. Though exactly this Max Design selected the year 1869 as the title of one of their games, because the Suez Canal is so important for shipping. The game is less concerned with Gandhi, apart from the fact that it is fairly free of violence.


A Mind Forever Voyaging

AMFV01.png
Infocom 1985
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
A Mind Forever Voyaging was originally released in 1985 by Infocom. Penned by Steve Meretzky, who also wrote Planetfall, Sorcerer, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, AMFV is different than most other contemporary Infocom adventures. It has only one real puzzle close to the end of the game, focusing instead on exploring the richly detailed story – and what a story it is!

Abobo's Big Adventure

Team Bobo 2012
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Where to begin with this game? By stating the fact, I never owned a NES and therefore know almost all of the characters in this game (a definitive tribute to just that system) only by hearsay? Or that as a general rule I despise flash-games, because they are often rather half-baked concepts in an uninspired endless loop? How much I normally hate mindless violence used for mindless violence sake? That I wonder yet again why the baddies even bother with kidnapping someone instead of finally accepting that this will always end in blood and tears? Impatient people will surely already be glancing at the rating and might start to be wondering by now…


Aces of the Deep

Dynamix 1994
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Aces of the Deep' is IMHO the best part of the 'Aces'-series and by far the best WW2 submarine simulation. No other game could catch the intense battle of the German subs in the Atlantic in such realistic way like 'AoD'. Actual submarine and weapon developments, changes in convoy tactics, improving air cover of the Atlantic, historical events - everything you can expect is implemented in this game.


Balance of Power - The 1990 Edition

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.


Battlezone

Atari 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

In the not-so-distant future (1999 to be exact), the nations of the world have at last recognized the need for peace to avoid mutual destruction and ensure the survival of the human race. The plan to achieve world piece is strongly reminiscient of the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still: Automated weapons are unleashed, supposedly to exterminate anyone becoming an aggressor. Of course, technology goes awry, and the weapons are starting to exterminate all life on earth. The player jumps into a rusty old tank trying to blow up all the other thanks, fighters and flying saucers which now threaten humanity.

Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

You are a space super-agent. And how do these people expend their time? Saving the world, of course! So here you are on your way to get rid of Dr Goldfire, the menacing evil guy, and his evil army of mutants and aliens.


Callahan's Crosstime Saloon

Legend Entertainment 1997
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Jake Stonebender is one of the regulars at the prolific bar where people from the past, the future and various mythological dimensions meet. Some visitors share their personal problems freely with the protagonist - dragging him right into them as he tries to solve them. How do you turn a series of short stories into a computer game? Make it episodical. Each of the episodes can be played independently with the bar acting as the place where short interludes take place. Interestingly enough, each episode is quite long on its own, resulting in a massive game when combined.


Carmageddon

Stainless Software / Sales Curve Interactive / Interplay 1997
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Carmageddon is known worldwide because of its controversial violence and gore, but while most of the games that support their interest in the controversy are usally empty of quality and fun factor, Carmageddon has loads of it, making a great and round game. The idea is insane: running over pedestrians, driving at the limit doing suicide cornering or jumping for hundreds of meters into the ground or from roof to roof, and crashing into your oponnents and law enforcers at maximum speed, all inside a totally open world with complete freedom to explore and experiment.


Champions of Krynn

Strategic Simulations, Inc. 1990
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Champions of Krynn... A game containing everything you'd expect from a classic RPG: magery, knights, thieves, dragons, epic battles, tragic love, heroic deeds, unexpected allies... I could go on forever. Well - not really forever, but you can imagine.
