1869

1869_01.png
Max Design 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (VGA)

In late 1992, two trading simulations were competing for the (German / European) market: Der Patrizier (also know as The Patrician abroad) and 1869. The latter came a little later (wow...) and it was generally considered the loser in this direct duel by the press. Only by a small margin, though - a very good second place.


A320 Airbus

Thalion 1992
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

This one's almost notorious… hailed for being super realistic, because three years of programming work by a real-life pilot had gone into it, it having been developed in cooperation with Airbus and Lufthansa… and, as every single contemporary review will point out, a thick manual sporting 150 pages of detailed descriptions of virtually everything, including basic explanations of flight physics, plus an even thicker book of approach routes towards all major western European airports are contained in the package! Wow, right?


Aaargh!

Melbourne House 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Regardless of what kind of game it is and how good or bad it is, this game wins the price for the greatest game name ever hands down: Aaargh! Just imagine going to the games store and demanding Aaargh! Or phoning a game retailer to order it. The possibilities of cool situations are endless.


Advanced Destroyer Simulator

Futura 1990
Genre: Strategy, Simulation
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Simulating a complete fleet is hard. Unless you make the player a fleet commander, but then, your game turns into a tactical one. If you're trying to stay within the simulation genre, you better…


Air Support

Psygnosis 1992
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] In 1992, the game genres as we still know them today had been pretty much settled already. While in the previous decade, experiments had still been welcomed fairly warmly, professional reviewers, many of whom were employed as 'specialists' for a certain genre, were not as sympathetic anymore when Air Support was released.


Alien Bash II

Glen Cumming / Myles Jeffery 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

The home computer era had a shitload of free games which, as spyware had basically not been invented yet, came with no strings attached. Most of it was rather unspectacular and not particularly worth playing. Case in point: the first Alien Bash, an ok, but unremarkable shooter set on the decks of an alien spaceship. Instead of Alien Breed, Alien Bash II now takes its cues from Chaos Engine.


Alien Breed

Team 17 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Two pilots encounter a space station where something's fishy. It has been overrun by aliens. Heroic as they are, they decide to clean the place out. No questions asked. It is the first encounter with a sentient otherworldly lifeform, after all. So what other option is there but to shoot? Right, thought so.

Alien Breed 3D

Team 17 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
After four parts, Alien Breed enters the fabled third dimension. In the mid 1990s, it was about time. Though Alien Breed 3D can't claim the (questionable per se) title of being the first Doom clone for itself. A genre which I just can't get the hang of in general. So why am I judging this game anyway? Well, first of all, I have just fought my way through all the previous Alien Breed games, and second, nobody else did it so far…

Alien Breed 3D II: The Killing Grounds

Team 17 / Ocean 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
This one's a tough game to review. If you've already seen screenshots somewhere on the Internet, you'll probably be amazed by the huge quality jump from the first part up to this one. And graphics (and, of course, their effect on gameplay) were my main complaint there, weren't they? So everything should be fine this time around, shouldn't it? If only things were so easy.

Alien Breed II: The Horror Continues

breed201.png
Team 17 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The '92 Special Edition, being only a budget release, obviously didn't bring much new to the Alien Breed series. The Horror Continues, on the other hand, was announced as the proper sequel and placed in the normal price range, so expectations should be higher. Does it fulfil these expectations? Well, to say it right away, it's a mixed bag.
