Diplomacy

diplo_000.png
Avalon Hill 1984
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

This is a conversion of a tabletop. As one of 7 Powers in a Europe divided in regions on the dawn of the 20th century you try to conquer as much as possible with your allies' help.

The rules have been adopted completely. The main point of them is that nothing happens by accident but everything can be calculated logically before. That means that nobody can use the excuse of luck/bad luck. Instead of that the attacking armies are compared to the defending ones. The one who has more wins. But more than one unit per area is impossible. In order to build a front line neighbouring countries have to support others.


Diplomacy

Virgin Mastertronic 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Diplomacy is a '[board-] game of international intrigue' which was developed in the 1950s. It takes place in the Europe of 1901. Seven major military powers are locked in a deadly power struggle. Each one is trying to achieve world domination, but neither can do it on its own.


Discovery - In the Steps of Columbus

Impressions 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Impressions never had the best reputation with the mainstream gamers. They mainly produced quite inaccessible (granted) strategy titles. Caesar and Cohort are maybe their widest known classic titles. The vast majority of their games completely disappeared though.


Discworld

Perfect 10 Productions / Psygnosis 1995
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Talk about a high profile project - a Discworld computer game. Such cult favourites always run the risk of offending the very dedicated fan base, especially since presumably the computer games market overlaps very much with the group of those fans. First impression: They did very well. The graphics look very Josh-Kirby-ish and the CD version features professional actors as the voices of the characters - with Eric Idle in the lead as the wizard Rincewind.


Discworld II: Missing Presumed…!?

dwb_000.png
Perfect Entertainment / Psygnosis 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Something's not working right in Discworld. The repercussions can be seen all over. People are still dying as normal, but their souls aren't being taken away. So the dead continue to roam the streets. The mages guild decides to have Rincewind investigate the wereabouts of Death. After taking a couple of twists and turns, the plot has Death turning into a movie star and Rincewind temporarily taking over the reaper role.


Dogs of War

Elite 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Steve Bak had already ported both Commando and Ikari Warriors to the Amiga for Elite, and apparantely building on that experience, he followed that up with his original creation Dogs of War. The use of 'original' in the previous sentence being limited to the meaning of 'not being a conversion', because Dogs follows Commando's footprints very closely, but it has become a minor classic on its own right.


Dogs of War

Software Engineering 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Axis & Allies - a popular board game set in the Second World War. Well, sort of a Second World War at least, with some changes to the actual historical situation of 1942 for the sake of game balance. Dogs of War is an unofficial version of Axis & Allies without major changes from the board game.


Dominus

Visual Concepts / U.S. Gold 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

If the history mankind has shown us one thing, it is that seemingly all-powerful empires will fall eventually. Their power depends on many psychological factors. Among them, the disunity of the people they rule over. Once those manage to ally, the sated, tardy and overly bureaucratic empire suddenly isn't so invincible anymore.


Don't Go Alone

Accolade 1989
Genre: RPG
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

An old mansion, a lost grandfather and plenty of monsters in what at firsts looks like another dungeon crawler, but that hide within a few things which make it different. But don't get your hopes high.


Donkey Kong

Nintendo 1983
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

Donkey Kong is the signature game of NES. While originally developed as an arcade game by Nintendo and later ported to every single console available at that time, NES has been the flagship product of Nintendo, and so it's only natural that it was here that the game was most visible. This game not only started the most successful game franchise of all times, it also transformed a 90-years old game cards company into an electronic entertainment behemoth and in the process set one of the most important legal precedents for the gaming industry.
