Advanced Destroyer Simulator

ads01.png
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…


Alpha Waves

Infogrames 1990
Genre: Simulation, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Now what should you think of this? A pseudo-esoteric 3D Sim with an unusual soundtrack. Yeah... that pretty much describes it. That's all? Hell no, of course not. The goal of the game itself is a bit unclear, but usually you have to find your way out of the room you are in, which in some cases is not difficult at all - at least it seems so - just jumping up those stairs. Yeah, you think - the gravity is different in those rooms, some stairs are just moving away and not all the doors you might want to use as an exit are open - you sometimes have to use crystals to open the doors. Nasty thing about this is that you can't even leave through the door you entered all the time - nice surprise to fall down from just below the roof, defintely eliminates the possibility of using that door again - hehe.

Atomix

Thalion 1990
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Known mainly as a developer of very unique and very colorful role-playing games for the Amiga, Thalion has produced several high-quality puzzle games as well. Probably the best puzzle was Atomix, a mix of timed puzzle and educational software. Over the course of ever fifty levels, the player had to combine atoms into molecules, in order to advance further.


Balance of Power - The 1990 Edition

Chris Crawford 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Balance of Power is almost a simulation of the cold war. As one of the two major superpowers (USA or USSR) you try to gain influence without starting a nuclear war.
The rest of the world is serving as a playground for the enemies. Other countries are not directly conquered but you try to get the respective government on your side or to overthrow it.


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.


Budokan: The Martial Spirit

Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The true disciple does not just master one art form. Following the popularity of martial arts films in the 1980s, Budokan lets you train in four such disciplines: Karate (unarmed fighting), Bo (staff), Nunchakus (two connected sticks) and Kendo (bamboo swords).


Castle Master

Incentive / Domark 1990
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

If a game primarily tries to sell its technical merits, its plot is quickly pushed on the back bench in the development phase. That is probably why this part of the Freescape series (a series known for its free-movement three-dimensional graphics) sends the player on the standard quest of the standard quests: The player takes over the role of either a prince or a princess whose respective counterpart twin has been captured by a magician. The player enters the baddies' castle on a rescue mission, but before he or she can enter the actual dungeon, he or she has to find ten items spread all around the castle.


Castlevania

Unlimited Software / Konami 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Released for the PC three years after its NES appearance, Castlevania is the first of a long series of horror platformers. That is, the first to bear the name "Castlevania". The game is a sequel to Vampire Killer, which appeared in Japan in 1986 for the MSX2 Home Computer system. This fact was apparent immediately for everybody who played the original games, as most sprites were directly taken from Vampire Killer, and only the backgrounds and music were improved.


Centurion: Defender of Rome

centurion01.png
Bits of Magic / Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Centurion: Defender of Rome was one of those overly complex yet simplistic games that had their heyday in late 1980s and early 90s. Designed by Kellyn Beck, the mastermind behind Defender of the Crown, the game is built on the same principles, only set into a different time period.
