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.


A-Train

Artdink / Maxis 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A-Train is a railroad-themed city-building game with a heavy business-management focus originally created by Japanese developer Artdink and published in English by Maxis in 1992. Although part of a popular series in Japan, enjoyment of this title is sometimes hampered by a smattering of design flaws, which notwithstanding, still make for an entertaining and engaging city-builder that is under-known and underappreciated. Despite this, A-Train failed to capture the imagination of the English-speaking world and was relegated to a legacy as one of Maxis' lesser known titles forever in the shadow of Sim City and its cohorts.


A320 Airbus

Thalion 1992
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

This one's almost notorious… hailed for being super realistic, because three years of programming work by a real-life pilot had gone into it, it having been developed in cooperation with Airbus and Lufthansa… and, as every single contemporary review will point out, a thick manual sporting 150 pages of detailed descriptions of virtually everything, including basic explanations of flight physics, plus an even thicker book of approach routes towards all major western European airports are contained in the package! Wow, right?


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.


Air Support

Psygnosis 1992
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] In 1992, the game genres as we still know them today had been pretty much settled already. While in the previous decade, experiments had still been welcomed fairly warmly, professional reviewers, many of whom were employed as 'specialists' for a certain genre, were not as sympathetic anymore when Air Support was released.


Alien Breed Special Edition 1992

Team 17 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
One year later: our heroes are back at another space station infested by aliens again. This time, it's a bit larger, spanning ten fairly large (all new) levels. Though it isn't Alien Breed II – it's "just" the Special Edition of the first part.

Alone in the Dark

Infogrames 1992
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This game is loosely based on H.P. Lovecrafts works. So you can expect a decent horror atmosphere. And that's what the game is all about: the atmosphere! It is created mainly be the presentation. The graphics are an attempt to be as movie-like as possible. You're playing in third-person perspective. The perspective changes depending on the spot where your alter ego stands. You are of course always visible, but from different directions and angles! When walking around you sometimes have the feeling of real movie-cuts.


Ashes of Empire

Midnight / Mirage 1992
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

First came Midwinter… and then the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Whether you see a causality in this sequence of events or not – the illegitimate child of these two followed soon enough, and it was called Ashes of Empire. From the (at the time very much current) situation of the former Soviet Union, the game takes its scenario: A large country, a major military has collapsed under its own economic weight. Its former republics are plunging into anarchy, and not the good kind. Armed former military units, now turned into modern-day highwaymen, are roaming the countries, leaving a trail of fear and suffering among the already poor and underfed population whereever their aimless plundering takes them. Only some local administrative structures can still uphold at least a bit of order.


B.A.T. II

ESP / Ubi Soft 1992
Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The Bureau of Astral Troubleshooters, an intergalactiv secret police, had already made a name for themselves in the episodic, self-titled first game. Now it is time for the big job: The Koshan conglomerate has come into a monopoly position as the only supplier of a resource of galactic importance. Through foul play, of course. B.A.T. has already sent one agent to Koshan's base planet, but in spite of a seemingly perfect cover story, she seems to have been detected. So the player goes after her, to save her, but also to finish the mission.


B.C. Kid

Factor 5 / Hudson Soft 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Conversions of console games to computers often go wrong. Translations of Japanese games just as often. With B.C. Kid, it went surprisingly smooth. It first appeared on the PC Engine and had (for 'western' tongues) a really strange name. The English version became 'Bonk'. Bonk? To make a long story short, the Amiga version got a better title when it was ported by the German company Factor 5 a few years later.
