Gateway 2: Homeworld

home_000.png
Legend Entertainment 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A large alien spacecraft is approaching earth. The United Nations see this as the opportunity for mankind to establish peaceful relations with extraterrestrials. An illustrious group of representatives is selected to approach the vessel in a small space shuttle. The protagonist, being a veteran 'prospector' of the Gateway project (as told in the first part), is supposed to teach some of what he learned on his travels to distant planets to these people. An easy job. But then, things go terribly wrong: A terrorist group of religious fanatics attacks the facility with poison gas and firearms - the shuttle is the only chance of escape and so the player suddenly finds himself all alone heading towards the alien ship...


Geh Aufs Ganze

Mr Creosote 1996
Genre: Strategy, Puzzle
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Computer version of a well-known (and extremely stupid) TV show. What I'm especially proud of is the how the 'studio audience' is trying to influence you ;)

Written in Quick Basic 4.5.


Geheimprojekt DMSO

Art Department 1993
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

[Mr Creosote] "Geheimprojekt DMSO" is an Art Department graphic adventure, promoting the rheumatism medicaments by the company Merckle GmbH. Professor Scheiffele of the university of Ulm, who had been working in corresponding product research, has vanished. Right before that happened, he called his nephew Jack Bene for help via telegram. Now it's his task to find the professor and uncover the background of his disappearance.


Geisha

geisha01.png
Coktel Vision 1990
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

After the big success (?) of Emmanuelle, fans (?) could hardly wait for more. So here we have Geisha. A game designed to make the audience appreciate the predecessor even more.

How is that possible? Well, from start to finish, Geisha is a mess. Its plot? Laughable: a mad scientist turns young beautiful women into robot sex slaves and now he has kidnapped your girlfriend. Right, of course! Luckily, the villain has made a number of enemies in Japan's underworld, so if you (literally) play your cards right, you may get some support stopping him.


Gemline

Jobline 2000
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Okay... first off, this game is in swedish... or norwegian - you can switch between these languages... and it's completely irrelevant. This game is a Coloris/Columns clone - and a very good one! Concept is simple - get 3 gems in a row, vertical, horizontal, diagonal - and they vanish. The original was usually referred to as a "Tetrislike game" although that kind of reduces the concept to less than it is. Coloris (or Columns ...or gemline) requires a different set of tactics and strategy. You cannot make long term plans as you can (try to) do in Tetris, you have to build and let vanish fast - you CAN prepare a larger collapse, but the game doesn't let you this room, you'll run out of space faster than in Tetris. Some might argue it's not as challenging as Tetris - maybe it's not, but it requires a different kind of thinking, not necessarily easier or harder...


Genetic Species

Marble Eyes / Vulcan 1998
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

Who was still making commercial games for the Amiga in 1998? Not too surprisingly, Genetic Species sold only about 3 copies worldwide. Though in retrospect, this hardly matters if it's a good game, does it? After all, there was only about one really good 3D shooter on the system before 1998 and looking at screenshots or gameplay videos, this one looks like a real contender for the genre crown.


Gesetzgebung

gesetzg01.png
Deutscher Bundestag 1994
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

This is a very special promotial game. It doesn't advertise a product or some company. It doesn't tell you 'buy this'. Or in fact, it does the latter. But in another meaning: it's political propaganda! And it does try to convince you to 'buy' all the stuff which is said there...


Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

twisted_dreams-0002.jpg
Black Forest Games 2012
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In the interest of full disclosure: This review is (mostly) based on a pre-release review version provided to us for free by the Black Forest Games itself. Whether or how this influences the reviewer, everybody will have to decide for themselves. The game was complete and not less stable than common for MS-Windows software. There was a minor problem with speed (but still well playable in this regard) which, on the test machine, was still present in the final version. The developers blame this on "old hardware" – i.e. don't mistake this is a game made to be made for anything but the most current computers just because of its roots!


Girl Simulator

girl01.png
? 1986
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

Ever since Eliza, artificial intelligences attempting to pass the Turing Test have predominantly belonged to the female species. It is, as everybody knows, a sign of a scientific approach. Girl Simulator discloses its non-biological nature in its name; nevertheless, it shall be treated according to the same scientific standards out of respect proper in academic circles.


Gladiators

Steve Metcalf / Alternative Software 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

You know, there's one thing I haven't done since I started bugging you with my CBM-nostalgy. I haven't told you about any of those good-old-da...sorry, good-old-shoot'em'up-s. Which is a wonder since that's one of the things C64 was famous for:) and certainly not for the likes of LUnix and Geck/A65.
