Alley Cat

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.


Archon – The Light and the Dark

Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, C64

This is the PC port of the great game Archon. I played this game for hours at a time on the Commodore 64. The PC version plays identically. The graphics are, in my humble opinion, much better on the Commodore.


Avoid the Noid

California Merchandising Concepts, Inc. 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

For a game thats sole purpose is to advertise a pizza company, it is surprisingly full featured. Avoid the Noid features 10 different levels with 3 floors each and an extra level that includes a rooftop. The goal of the game is to reach the top floor and deliver the pizza to Doom Industries without running into a noid. A noid is an advertising character featured in Domino's commercials back in the 80s who appears as a small man wearing a red skin-tight suit with bunny ears. His sole purpose is to annoy you and prevent you from delivering your pizza in time.


Contra

Banana Development 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Contra for DOS is a port of the original arcade game with the same title. Unfortunately, it is regarded as the poorest version of Contra officially released, despite being one of the more obscure titles.


Digger

Windmill Software 1983
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Digger was created by Windmill Software in 1983 and released as a copy-protected, bootable 5.25" floppy disk for the IBM PC. It was designed to work on an IBM XT/AT with a CGA adapter; it relies on the CPU for timing, so it will run too fast on newer PCs.


Eden Blues

ERE Informatique 1987
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

...And the next thing you know you're in prison. Whatever crime you commited bears no importance, but what truly matters is that you're now behind bars and have to find your way out of here ASAP. Besides, what could be more romantic than escaping from a slammer? But beware, this isn't your typical prison, for there are not even guards to tease and jeer at nor fellow convicts to bully or share ciggies with. Here you are all alone, save for a bunch of security droids that seek to interfere with your plans for escape. There are also traps and other harmful devices set around to make your life difficult, so all you need now is just a little bit of luck and perseverance... if only not a whole lot more.

Partestrada is in danger! General Pardo the local warlord is plotting a civil war and is aiming to slaughter every last one of the townsfolks.

Your good familiar dog Macchiata and archangel Raphael will accompany and assist you along the way. Make haste and find a way to stop Pardo and his men before they reduce Partestrada to ashes and its people to dust.


PopCorn

Lacral 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Is it Breakout? Is it Arkanoid? No, it's PopCorn! Whaat?! Yep, that's right. A French response from Lacral to all ye bat-and-ball addicts out there! Your mission here is as usual to do away with all the bricks you can see in the game while avoiding nasties, avoiding losing the ball, and finally come out a winner. Ready? Go! A little renowned but by no means inferior 'breakanoid' so to speak, as it sure does have quite a lot to offer, includes all the evolved features of the preceding versions and despite its failed glory it yet has the full privelege of being placed in the same camp among other successful products that truly defined the Breakout-style gaming.

Epyx 1986
Genre: Sport
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Dear Readers, welcome to our live coverage of Winter Games! The organisers could not have chosen a better day for the event: Look at that Čerenkov blue sky, ever so slightly marred by small cloudy squares of brilliant white! The sight is even clear enough to catch a glimpse of the far away Purple Peaks.
