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.


JONES in the Fast Lane

Sierra On-Line 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Just like many other Sierra games, JONES in the Fast Lane was developed with the Sierra Creative Interpreter. Nevertheless, it is not an Adventure game. In retrospect, you could say it is a kind of turn-based 'The Sims breaking out'.


One Must Fall 2097

Epic Megagames 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Its emerging shareware scene was one of the main draws towards the IBM PC platform for gaming in the early 1990s. Unlike the tightly controlled games console ecosystems, this platform gave smaller developers opportunities to make something against the usual conventions and consequently drew players as well.


SimEarth

Maxis 1990
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

´╗┐SimEarth is a game developed by Will Wright (William not Wilbur) based on James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis. The manual describes it is an informative toy and entertaining activity on top of that. And this says a lot about the game, there is no story or actually even no goal.


Wurmi aus Frankfurt

spiele_000.png
? 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Following the motto of never breaking for anything, the player's avatar bolts across the screen at breakneck speed, just to swallow a beer from time to time. The only thing which could stop him would be the screen borders. Almost sounds like a Werner game, but there are a few differences. The most striking one first: the beer will not get you drunk, but stretches you. Also, the protagonist does not come from Schleswig Holstein, but from Frankfurt, and it is not a rocker, but a worm. Welcome to the world of Wurmi aus Frankfurt.
