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.

Dragon's Lair

Advanced Microcomputer Systems / Cinematronics 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Arcade

Although arcade games were often technically much more advanced than their home counterparts in past times, most lost their ability to impress. Reliance on flashy audiovisuals rarely works when even better things become possible – nothing ages as badly as yesterday's technical sensation. But then, there are those games which are so far ahead of their contemporaries that the rest of the world literally took decades to catch up. Now, in 2013, Dragon's Lair still looks as impressive as it did thirty years ago: Fluidly animated, sharp cartoon scenes never get old. Just look at something like an old Tom & Jerry cartoon – just from the visuals, you will not be able to tell when it was made; it's a timeless technique.


Duke Nukem 3D

3D Realms Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

When Duke Nukem 3D was first released back in 1996, it took the video game industry by storm. At the time of its release, it was rare to find any game that had any sort of mature content, which in modern times is now commonplace, it followed the trails of the success of Doom, which saw Duke Nukem deviate away from its platforming roots to a much mature and darker first person shooter. The game takes place after the events of Duke Nukem II, where Duke returns from space and finds Earth overrun by aliens that are hell-bent on abducting all of Earth’s women and it’s up to Duke to save the day.

MegaTech 1994
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Knights of Xentar is one weird ass RPG. You play as Desmond, a knight with a kids voice who gets his sword, jewels, and clothes stolen by bandits at the very beginning. As soon as you save the daughter of a storekeeper and get some equipment, it's off on a quest to get your stuff back while saving lots of girls in the process. (Keep in mind that the US version is censored by default unless you install the NR-18 Kit)


Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter

Sierra On-Line 1991
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Wandrell] We are talking about a nice remake. Maybe if you have played the Quest series you'll remember that, back at the beginning, they were not like the mouse-driven games we know. Until someone decided to make a remake of the original game of each saga. And one of them is the game we are going to talk about.


Star Wars: Rebel Assault

LucasArts 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

To become a killer application, a game has to do something which simply couldn't be done before. Without a doubt, Rebel Assault, one of the three games which have to be credited for really giving CD-ROM drives their big breakthrough, fits this bill perfectly. Its blend of clips from the original films and high-quality renderings of… 'similar' scenes was indeed unheard of. It hadn't been the first major Star Wars game of the decade. X-Wing had preceeded it by about 9 months. Though it had impressed the specialised press and indeed became a bestseller by the standards of the day, it did not have the broad mass appeal of Rebel Assault which just came closer to the feeling of Star Wars.
