Colonial Conquest

colonial01.png
SSI 1987
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

War without bloodshed? Easy, just don't show the individual's fate, but take it to a more abstract level. A way more abstract level: Push around wodden blocks on a world map, and suddenly, even genocide becomes fun! Like in Colonial Conquest.


Damocles: Mercenary II

damocles01.png
Novagen 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

The 21st Century (hint: this is meant to be the future ;)). Interplanetary travel has become normal. Many planets in the nearby solar systems have been colonized. Nations have grown to the size of whole planets.


Day of the Pharaoh

grab0001.png
Chip / Rainbow Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST
The pharaoh is dead – long live the pharaoh! If only we knew which one! Well, the player knows it should be him, obviously, being the real descendent of the old, murdered ruler. Unlike those pretenders to the throne. A real pity that this actual prince is stuck in some low social caste, unknown to the general public. So he needs to fight his way back up the social ladder to regain his rightful position.

Hydra

Ice Software / Tengen / Domark 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

I never expected the job of a postman to be so exciting! A cool motor boat speeding down rivers and over the sea to deliver important packages (like for example the Britsh crown jewels) to their receipients. Avoiding terrorist ships, mines and floating logs, or blasting them if they are really in the way (I'm waiting for the day DHL starts doing that). All just to ensure speedy delivery (I'm waiting for the day DHL considers taking a go at that, too).


Joan of Arc

Chip / Rainbow Arts 1989
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST
Defender of the Crown was a troubled production. As the deadline was approaching and the initial development team fell more and more behind schedule, not only some features were removed from the baseline (which re-appeared in later ports), but also some essential changes were made to the basic game mechanics. One of them was the switch from real time to turn-based. Although Cinemaware later released a not dissimilar game which did sport real time gameplay, they never re-visited their initial genre-defining classic in this respect. So somebody else did it instead. Enter Joan of Arc.

Joust

Rugby Circle / Atari 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST, Atari 2600, Arcade
This is a very faithful conversion of the 1982 arcade machine which provides pretty much the original experience.

Lucky Luke

Coktel Vision / Cedic Vifi 1987
Genre: Action, Puzzle
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

Lucky Luke - the man who draws faster than his own shadow. If you don't know this guy, leave this site now. Seriously - we don't want you here! Stop reading and go away!

So now that we've got rid of those non-cultured morons, let's talk about the game. It's about Lucky Luke helping a railroad to be built. Not sure whether this is supposed to be based on a particular comic. Could either be Des Rails Sur La Prairie (using the original titles here, because I'm not sure about English ones) or Nitroglycerine, with the latter being the more likely candidate, because the first ones predates the introduction of the Dalton brothers into the line. Then again, the similarities with the latter are fairly limited.


Rampage

Bally Midway / Activision 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

This is gonna be a short one, as there's not much to describe in terms of storyline and plot. Straightforward coin-op/arcade stuff here, which is a genre I usually won't rave about. Rampage has that little something that makes certain games so addictive, though.


S.T.U.N. Runner

Tengen / Domark 1990
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

You've all gone through this: You see this amazing game, a technological marvel, a sensational experience. You buy the game, and then it turns out your own computer doesn't really seem to be up to it. These days, you'd just go out and buy a new video card or a faster processor, but in 1990, that just wasn't possible - because all hardware on the consumer market wouldn't have cut it in some cases. Cue S.T.U.N. Runner.


Snowstrike

Epyx / US Gold 1990
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

This is one I spent a lot of time with back in the days. At first glance, it's a simple aerial shooter, but there's more to it than that. Even though it's far from being a realistic simulation, there's a certain feel to the controls and general gameplay that draws you in, and before you know it, you really ARE crack pilot Butch Slayer, codename Fifi.
