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.


Bananoid

bananoid_000.png
William Rieder 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

William Rieder describes his creation Bananoid quite fittingly as a ‘wall-block-paddle-pill game’ with which he wanted to demonstrate that MCGA graphics work on DOS machines. And that is exactly what you get, nothing more and nothing less: A nice looking Breakout clone – or as the name already implies rather one of Arkanoid. To some this might be actual proof that back in the late 80ies the capabilities of PC graphics were underused and underestimated (most DOS games of that era where still stuck in EGA or even CGA mode), to others it plays like one of the hardest games of its kind.


Batman Forever

Acclaim 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Gotham City. The decadent abode of violence, murderous crimes, mad supervillains and never-ending darkness and gloom. Ever occured to you that even the very name suggests a certain gothic connotation? Once again our DC hero in black cape and mask must save the day and this time his target is The Riddler along with his disfigured accomplice Two-Face, formerly a good friend of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, but now a sick nutjob with multiple personality disorder. Their henchmen are a good old bunch of cold-hearted goons, thugs and various trick-or-treaters gone loony. Well, Batman, that sounds like right up your alley!


Death Rally

Apogee / Remedy Entertainment 1996
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It may seem strange at first, but having a machine gun mounted on your car makes perfect sense. After all, what better way to keep an overtaking car from getting ahead? How about mines for those tailing you too closely? This is no ordinary competition, you know. And if you want to make it all the way to the top, you must be willing to drive into some gray territory.

Falcon 3.0

Spectrum Holobyte 1991
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Thick 250-page manual. CHECK. Flight stick, throttle and rudder controls. CHECK. Ray Ban aviator classic sunglasses mixed with a hot-shot pilot attitude. CHECK.

Joystick jocks. You know who you are. If you played Falcon 3.0 in the early 1990s you might be just now looking in the mirror and noticing the fine-white hairs sneaking out of the side of your head. Yes, you are that old and so is Falcon 3.0. But perhaps some of those silver hairs are well-earned from the hundreds of hours of flight time you have logged in your virtual cockpit.
