3 Ninjas Kick Back

3NinjasKickBack000.png
Malibu Interactive / Sony Imagesoft 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

The Mega Drive was filled with many memorable titles ranging from Sonic the Hedgehog to Streets of Rage, though 3 Ninjas Kick Back can be considered one of the more forgettable experiences you will probably have on the Mega Drive console. You begin with the choice of three characters, all of whom are from the movie the game is based on, each come with their own unique weapons that include a bo, a katana, and twin swords. The enemies you encounter are pretty generic, ranging from dogs to ninjas, and the boss fights are not practically challenging though they can be cheap at times. The downside to the game is that each character, besides their weapons, play identically to each other, they possess the same speed, power, and jumping distance. The game consists of 5 levels, which are segmented into smaller parts, and can be generally frustrating at times to locate the exit. Though, once you get the gist of it, the game can be completed in a little over a half an hour. Overall, the soundtrack of the game is it’s only redeeming quality, as it sounds as good as some of the better Mega Drive titles.


3D CyberPuck

Ticsoft 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

How could this game's concept be described most accurately? Yeah, right - by telling which classic game it's a clone of! Two problems with this though: Nobody will know the original and (even worse) even I forgot the title! It was a sports game by Lucasfilm on the C64 (at least I think it was on this system). Edit: In fact it was Ballblazer by Lucasfilm on the old Atari. Thanks to Chris for reminding me!


Abenteuer Europa

SPD 1994
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Before he was banished from public view in order to stay in the pool or 'fly' over the fields forever, Rudi Scharping was the head of one of the biggest political parties in Germany: the SPD. In 1994, he managed to lose the most important election in spite of all polls having been in favour of the SPD mere weeks earlier. A few months before that, the results of the election of the European parliament turned out even worse for them. In spite of (or because of?) this game.


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.


Alien Breed: Tower Assault

Team 17 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

After three so-so games in three years, you should really think that expectations for the fourth Alien Breed would be low. I'm all the happier to report that with Tower Assault, Team 17 finally got their act together. It is the last one of the classic series, and also its pinnacle. Finally a game which can really be recommended. Why is that?


Alien Carnage

Alien Carnage, also known as Halloween Harry, is a sidescrolling action platform game.

Alone in the Dark 2

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.


Alone in the Dark 3

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

When people start filming a western the local cowboy ghosts seem to dislike the idea and start causing mayhem. The only solution is calling Carnby, who will come, kick some asses, solve absurd puzzles and save an old friend.


Arcade Pool

Team 17 1994
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Not all sports translate well to the computer. Pool, in particular, is tricky, because it is essentially a geometry game. A computer player could easily pocket every single ball perfectly, as it could precompute the trajectories of all balls. Human players could be supported by showing exactly what would end up where before a shot is committed. Though where would be the fun in all of that?

Banshee

Core Design 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Banshee is a very late arrival in the genre of shooters. In 1994, the gaming industry started moving everything towards 'three-dimensional' games, and classic concepts like this one slowly died out. Thankfully, this genre (at least the subgenre of 'vertical shooters') got one final hit with this game.
