A Computer Christmas

sierra-xmas86_000.png
Sierra On-Line 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

It is strange, but the thought that people used to write all of their Christmas cards by hand and send them via non-e mail seems really archaic. Yes, people who like their festive season nostalgic or simply love traditions still do it today, but most of our Christmas greetings take a different route now. Whether its email, text messaging or social media: Purely digital seems the way to go. Yet there was an even stranger time when there were hybrids, that is digital greetings send on physical media. Mostly they were created by big software companies for their employees and/or customers and they were as curious as they were innovative.

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.

Story: You are the supreme god of the universe. Normally, that's rather a good position to be in, but now the demon Tanzra has stolen your powers and infested the whole world with monsters. One last angel is all you have left...


Ambermoon

Thalion 1993
Genre: RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Ambermoon is an action RPG made in 1993 by Thalion. Back at the time, it was one of the first role playing games with 3D graphics moving freely in a 360° surrounding. These elements are mixed with a 2D overhead map view. Other games like the Eye of the Beholder trilogy also had a 3D engine, but only in 45° tracker style. What all these games had in common was the unique story. Challenging, motivating and very well told.


Archon – The Light and the Dark

Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 5/6

System: C64, PC (CGA)

Have you ever heard about Napoleon? Yeah, the genial goblin-like garlic-eater. It's strange how along the time, the good games that had a look at this formidable person...simply failed to appear.


Beet the Devil

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Demons have laid waste on your garden, probably killed your neighbour and, worst of all, kidnapped your dog! What else is there left to do, but to go down to hell (armed with various vegetables and accompanied by a helpful puppy) and to retrieve it?

Licence: Freeware
System: PC

"Parlez-vous français?" At the time of the publication of the original I was already struggling with learning English at school, but fortunately the basic French course was still far away from me and could have stayed there for all I cared. No wonder I never heard of this exclusively French game before.


Cold Iron

Andrew Plotkin 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

A simple farmer is looking for his axe to chop wood. In the process, he has to enter the nearby forest which, according to his superstition, must be haunted. His naive viewpoint is sometimes contrasted by those of a clergyman – or rather the farmer's interpretation of that guy's views. Until a shift in perspective occurs in the last few turns.


獣王記 (Jūōki)

Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

When it was time to sell SEGA's new console they needed something spectacular to showcase it. You know how this thing goes, wrap it with something everybody loves, such as this arcade beat-them-up, and put it in a new shiny envelope to attract buyers.


Daughter of Serpents

Millenium 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Egypt in 1920. A mysterious artifact found on the black market. Inside: a scroll containing a mysterious prophecy. The perfect prerequisites for the followup of the excellent Hound of Shadow? Yes. A worthy followup? No.
