Codename: Iceman

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Codename: Iceman is a Sierra game published in 1989. It’s, unlike the Police Quest and Space Quest series for example, a standalone game, following the story of Naval Officer Johnny Westland. Something you could notice about the game is the fact it has got an upgrade if you look at the animations. Just like several other titles that have been published around the same time, Sierra games took a boost in their animations and overall visual aspect of the games.


Cohort II: Fighting for Rome

Impressions 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Cohort II, even sharing the original's subtitle, has to be the laziest sequel in the history of the computer games industry. Why? It is virtually identical with its predecessor.

Let's have a look at what changed. Apart from the new title screen (Wow!), that is. Two languages the game previously spoke are not supported anymore (feature regression…). There are some new battlefield types, one of which ("marsh") is effectively the same as "bridge" combined with "hills" and the rest ("downs", "undergrowth" and "forest") plays just like the previously available "hills" as well. Of course, none of these new battlefields look any good graphically.


Cohort: Fighting for Rome

Impressions 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

In 1990, Impressions released Rorke's Drift, a wargame with an interesting setting (the Anglo-Zulu War) with a fresh challenge (defending a lightly fortified position against an overwhelming force). Problem was, in spite of its attempts to be accessible with its cartoonish graphics and icon-driven interface, it was basically unplayable. Cohort is basically just Rorke's Drift all over again, with a slightly different setting.


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.


Colonial Conquest

SSI 1987
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST

War without bloodshed? Easy, just don't show the individual's fate, but take it to a more abstract level. A way more abstract level: Push around wodden blocks on a world map, and suddenly, even genocide becomes fun! Like in Colonial Conquest.


Colonization

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Once upon a time, Sid Meier along with some other people created really innovative and fresh games. But then Civilization came. Even though it was (is!) a great game, it had one negative effect on the gaming industry: It made Sid Meier & company reusing the basic idea again and again.


Colony Wars 2492

Black Legend Software GmbH 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Colony Wars 2492 is a game which has fallen into oblivion over the years. Some gamers will still remember that there used to be a game in which you had to build robots from three components, but most of them will not even remember the name or they confuse it with Akte Europa.


Color Lines

Gamos Ltd 1992
Genre: Puzzle, Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Color Lines is a turn-based board game released by russian company Gamos Ltd, which is one of the four games in Gamos puzzle series and is the most known of all. I first saw it as a kid somewhere in 1995 and immediately began to hate it, because thinking was never my virtue. It is curious that the programming part was conducted entirely by a woman (Olga Demina) and the lovely EGA graphics by male duo Igor Ivkin and Gennady Denisov. The game was quite popular amid other 90's office games and was invariably sheltered on every PC user's hard drive or a floppy disk.


Color the Truth

Brian Rushton 2016
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Rosalita is being blackmailed, having embezzled some money from her own charity. Two days later, the aging radio station owner and show host is murdered in her own office. Her secretary saw the murderer: a very likely disguised man with a stubble. The investigation team already sweeped the place. Now it's up to the player to interview the four main suspects – the beneficiaries named in the victim's will, i.e. her sister (a flamboyant wannabe show star), her ex-husband (also her former colleague who went to the competition recently), her business partner and the secretary.


Colorado

Silmarils 1990
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

You are a fearless trapper who seems to have only one reason for being on the west: killing indians and walking a lot. Ok, that were two reasons, but they will be what you’ll be doing on this game. A bit simple game, but which is, as usual with Silmarils, different from the usual.
