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.

Revistronic 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Arizona, 1866. Fenimore Fillmore, the young (actually, he looks like he's 12 years old) hero of our story, accidently stumbles across the secret of three golden skulls which unlock the way to the treasure of the Toltecs. One of these skulls is already in his possession. Two other ones have yet to be located, but at least he knows who has them.


3D CyberPuck

Ticsoft 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

How could this game's concept be described most accurately? Yeah, right - by telling which classic game it's a clone of! Two problems with this though: Nobody will know the original and (even worse) even I forgot the title! It was a sports game by Lucasfilm on the C64 (at least I think it was on this system). Edit: In fact it was Ballblazer by Lucasfilm on the old Atari. Thanks to Chris for reminding me!

A Journey into Xanth

Neil Sorenson 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This is a must for every Xanth-Fan! I always loved the great books of Piers Anthony and searched hard for any computer-games based on it. Long before I was able to get my hands on the graphical adventure I found this game (and lost it when my harddisk crashed).


A Mind Forever Voyaging

AMFV01.png
Infocom 1985
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
A Mind Forever Voyaging was originally released in 1985 by Infocom. Penned by Steve Meretzky, who also wrote Planetfall, Sorcerer, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, AMFV is different than most other contemporary Infocom adventures. It has only one real puzzle close to the end of the game, focusing instead on exploring the richly detailed story – and what a story it is!

A New Beginning

Daedalic Entertainment 2010
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

It's an old custom that worlds should die in a spectacular fashion, and this time it's the turn for solar flare to destroy all life on the planet. Of course, there are people who want to stop that from happening and they go for the obvious solution: traveling back in time to convince people they should save their ecosystem and invest in renewable energy sources.


A-Train

Artdink / Maxis 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A-Train is a railroad-themed city-building game with a heavy business-management focus originally created by Japanese developer Artdink and published in English by Maxis in 1992. Although part of a popular series in Japan, enjoyment of this title is sometimes hampered by a smattering of design flaws, which notwithstanding, still make for an entertaining and engaging city-builder that is under-known and underappreciated. Despite this, A-Train failed to capture the imagination of the English-speaking world and was relegated to a legacy as one of Maxis' lesser known titles forever in the shadow of Sim City and its cohorts.


Abenteuer Europa

euro_000.png
SPD 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Before he was banished from public view in order to stay in the pool or 'fly' over the fields forever, Rudi Scharping was the head of one of the biggest political parties in Germany: the SPD. In 1994, he managed to lose the most important election in spite of all polls having been in favour of the SPD mere weeks earlier. A few months before that, the results of the election of the European parliament turned out even worse for them. In spite of (or because of?) this game.


Abobo's Big Adventure

Team Bobo 2012
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Where to begin with this game? By stating the fact, I never owned a NES and therefore know almost all of the characters in this game (a definitive tribute to just that system) only by hearsay? Or that as a general rule I despise flash-games, because they are often rather half-baked concepts in an uninspired endless loop? How much I normally hate mindless violence used for mindless violence sake? That I wonder yet again why the baddies even bother with kidnapping someone instead of finally accepting that this will always end in blood and tears? Impatient people will surely already be glancing at the rating and might start to be wondering by now…
