Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

American tourist George Stobbart is enjoying himself sitting in a cafe in Paris when he witnesses a murder: a clown plants of a bomb and an older man in a grubby raincoat who had been eyeing the young waitress just a moment before dies. The clown escapes through the sewers. Because he has nothing better to do, George decides to investigate on his own, meeting the journalist Nicole (Nico) Collard who supports him for selfish reasons. They uncover a conspiracy involving the order of the templars... Looking at the current bestseller lists of novels and the cinema charts, Broken Sword hits a popular theme there.

Brutal Sports Football

Millenium 1994
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS), Amiga (CD32)

In contrary to the potential expectations considering the name, Brutal Sports Football does not have very much in common with soccer or football (or even sports). Some elements have been adopted, though. Two teams try to put a ball into the enemy's goal while guarding their own.

Brutal: Paws of Fury

Gametek 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A fighting game based on the looks of classic cartoons? I applaud this idea unreservedly – the promise of this kind of violence translated into interactive format just makes sense. Imagine Jerry taking out a heavy pan to smack Tom on the head, and then the latter retaliating in a similar way. So I launched this game with high expectations.

Buck Rogers - Planet of Zoom

Sega 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Buck Rogers... when I hear that name I instantly think of this stupid, annoying, just plainly dumb robot-thing... Twiki... Argh! I guess it was supposed to be cute, but well - it's not relevant here anyway. The whole series... comic... movies - everything ist just not important here. The only thing this game has got to do with Buck Rogers at all is just that there is some kind of spacecraft involved and there's a bit of flying around in space. That's just about it.

Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday

SSI 1990
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Being a declared non-fan of roleplaying games, but a bit of a fan of Buck Rogers (the 1930s serial being somewhat forgettable, but the first season of the 1970s series being totally excellent), this game always had me torn. I gave playing it many serious attempts, sometimes not getting anywhere, but gradually getting better at it. Time to have another go!

Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed

SSI 1992
Genre: RPG
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed, the venerable SSI Gold Box game engine is put through the paces in a space opera adventure in the Buck Rogers universe. In addition to familiar AD&D-based character creation and Gold Box adventuring, the game includes a skill system, story-based experience rewards, and attractive VGA graphics that are inexplicably shrunk to the same small viewport used since Pool of Radiance. A musical score is supported by Soundblaster or Roland hardware.

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).

Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show

Tynesoft 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Summer Games, California Games - you all know these games which consist of somehow sports-related mini games. Then there was was Circus Games - we're already getting a little more obscure here - and later, the same company released Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. And once again, the title says it all, so let's quickly go through the events of this game.


Anssi Räisänen 2001
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

It's every player's nightmare: An aspiring IF author (to make matters worse, one who is related to you) asks you to beta test his game. This can be fun, but if the game is really, really bad and if you can't really tell that to the person in question, things get ugly. Bugged is about you playing your cousin's first attempt at writing a game, and not only is it a completely linear set of boring rooms, located in a castle of a bog-standard fantasy kingdom, but pretty much everything imaginable went wrong technically - the game is bugged to the extreme. Most of the puzzle solutions don't work as expected and imagined by the author. So you have to find ways around those bugs. I.e. you exploit other bugs in order to progress.

Buggy Boy

Tatsumi / Taito Corporation 1987
Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Racing on the C64 had a few problems, as you might remember. Games like these were hard to make due to the procedural nature of BASIC, and most of the racing game were really crap.
Well, you might just like to know that this thing is NOT a crap game at all. In fact, although featuring only 5 races, Buggy Boy is some of the most interesting pieces of software I've ever seen. And certainly one of the most interesting racing games of the '80s.
