Alone in the Dark 2

indark201.png
Infogrames 1994
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The ghost pirate One Eyed Jack (no relation to Twin Peaks) has kidnapped a little girl. A detective called Striker has located her, but just as he's about to free her again, a creepy clown doll comes to life and strangles him to death. Enter Striker's colleague: Edward Carnby, in a distincly more modern suit than the one he wore in the first game. Arriving at the mansion (appropriately called Hell's Kitchen), he's immediately faced with zombies... carrying machine guns.


Anno 1602: Creation of a New World

anno160201.png
Max Design / Sunflowers 1998
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Tapuak] Anno 1602 is a classic city building sim. You're founding a settlement in a world of islands, and develop it by providing space to live and necessary goods to the citizens. In mission mode, you have to fulfill single tasks, but in free play, it's your final goal to beat your opponents from the surrounding cities to achieve sovereign rule over the islands. At the beginning, you choose a appropriate island to found your first settlement. Right from the start, you have to deliver basic goods to your people.


Ascii Sector

Christian Knudsen 2009
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Remaking Privateer... many have tried, quite a few have succeeded. Yet, Ascii Sector stands out even from the group of good ones. The selling point: The whole game uses the the ANSI (ironically, not actually ASCII) character set (in 16 colours) to create the graphical environment the player moves in. This is because the game takes place in another part of space: the Ascii Sector. Like the Gemini Sector found in the original Privateer, the Ascii Sector consists of four quadrants, numerous star systems and many planets. Just (obviously) not the same ones from the original game.


Captain Verdeterre's Plunder

Ryan Veeder 2013
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

[Mr Creosote] Captain Verdeterre's Plunder is a humorous, very short game. The player takes over the role of the first mate on a sinking pirate ship. It is his task to save the most valuable treasures which are spread all over the ship.


Colonization

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Once upon a time, Sid Meier along with some other people created really innovative and fresh games. But then Civilization came! Even though it was (is!) a great game, it had one negative effect on the gaming industry: It made Sid Meier & company reusing the basic idea again and again.


Crown

Starbyte 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

I'm not really sure how I got to own this game... my guess is it came from one of these sales where the stores would just throw whatever they have left of unsellable stuff on a huge table and be happy about anyone ridding them of anything. So the price would have been low, and the expectations about the same. At least I have no recollection of being seriously disappointed.


Discovery - In the Steps of Columbus

discovery01.png
Impressions 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Impressions never had the best reputation with the mainstream gamers. They mainly produced quite inaccessible (granted) strategy titles. Caesar and Cohort are maybe their widest known classic titles. The vast majority of their games completely disappeared though.


Fish Fillets

ALTAR Interactive 1998
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

‘Pozor!’ the sharklike fish tries to warn me. But it’s already too late, the skull crashes on his goldfish friend and kills her. Time to restart the level and plan my steps more carefully. But before that I will take a break and tell you about this very unique puzzle game I am playing right now. Basically it’s an intriguing cross between Tetris, Soko-Ban and Boulder Dash. Oh and if you couldn’t already tell by the opening quote: It’s also from a smaller Czech indie developer. Therefore the fish only speak in Czech… fortunately with multilingual subtitles. Well, this does have a certain charm, doesn’t it? :D


Frontier: Elite 2

Gametek 1993
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Frontier is the sequel to The classic space trading game "Elite". Elite offered one of the first truly open ended games. A game of freedom where you could go and do whatever you pleased with no set storyline or levels. However Elite was also pretty dated by 1993, especially the original polygon wire looking BBC version. So Elite II hit the shelves.


Goof Troop

Capcom 1993
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

It's about time to offer our younger visitors something with educational value. I'll do it with 'Goof Troop' and I also admit that I played it although I?m not 8 any more (didn't you guess that?). How embarassing, but I'll try hard to justify it with this test.
