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.


Aces of the Deep

Dynamix 1994
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Aces of the Deep' is IMHO the best part of the 'Aces'-series and by far the best WW2 submarine simulation. No other game could catch the intense battle of the German subs in the Atlantic in such realistic way like 'AoD'. Actual submarine and weapon developments, changes in convoy tactics, improving air cover of the Atlantic, historical events - everything you can expect is implemented in this game.


Aces of the Pacific

Dynamix 1992
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Aces of the Pacific' is a very good air combat simulation which takes place in the Pacific in 1941-1945. A large variety of combat missions, airplanes, periods to start and realism settings guarantee almost infinite replayability.


Aces Over Europe

Dynamix 1993
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

That 'Aces over Europe' is kind of a sequel to 'Aces of the Pacific' becomes obvious at first sight. Graphfically nothing has changed, just some more sounds have been added; each plane has its own engine noise now. But nevertheless it's better than 'AotP' because most of its minor flaws have been removed.


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…


Allied General

SSI 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Allied General – SSI's cash-in sequel to the Panzer General success. The original's roles are simply reversed: instead of the Axis powers, you play the Allied side. Oh, and it's on Windows, i.e. more difficult to get to run these days. Great, thanks!


Battles of Napoleon

SSI 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You know, some time ago (about 200 years or so...), there was a great man (I avoid saying 'big' at his 1.60m height) who liked war. Maybe a bit of a pertinent introduction, but no matter if you are French of Anglo-Saxon, you are going to enjoy this.


Caesar

Impressions 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

"Intellectual property" is a fairly new invention of our lawyer-driven world. You can be sure that in the days of the ancient Roman Empire, nobody would have sued anyone for copying ideas. Maybe they would have sent a thug to rough you up, hired curthroats to murder your family or, if they were real meanies, sent an army to massacre your whole people, but they wouldn't have sued.


Caesar II

Impressions / Sierra 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The sequel to Impressions‘ 1993 game Caesar, this Sierra title is the first in the City Builder Series to utilise the isometric view. Sporting a massive improvement visually and in terms of gameplay over the first game, it was also one of the relatively few games that could run natively in both MS-DOS and Windows 95.


Campaign

Empire Software 1992
Genre: Simulation, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I still remember buying Campaign twenty years ago quite well. In autumn 1992, I was still in my first quarter at the maintenance division of the German army. After the basic training, I read one of common gaming magazines and found an ad for Campaign in there.
