Ignition

UDS / Virgin Interactive 1997
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Nothing stolen, nothing gained. While the world was anxiously waiting for the next generation of the Micro Machines series, Ignition came out of nowhere and took pretty much exactly the same line. OK, strictly speaking, they're not toy cars, but you do drive unlikely vehicles across unlikely tracks.


IK+

System 3 1988
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

How can one improve International Karate? Hard question. Most changes and additions would just screw the concept up. Everybody knows examples of great first parts of a series which got spoiled completely in the sequel.


Ilyad

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

Ilyad is a game with a troubled past. It was scheduled for release in 1989, but for some reason, it never appeared in spite of being finished. A British magazine then dug it up and brought it to the public as a coverdisk in 1991. Another year later, it was finally released commercially at last (I doubt it was very successful; a certain other crewmember of this site owns what is probably one of the few boxed originals in existence). To get it over with right from the start: the three years show. The graphics virtually scream '80s', and they aren't even very spectacular for that time.


Imperator

imperator01.png
Thomas Wolf 1983
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Along with Kaiser, this game defined the 'ruler-genre' for years to come! The premise is simple: make your country strong and stable inwards to conquer your neighbours.

Fitting the name, Imperator is set in ancient Rome. Your main job is to distribute the budget amongst several groups of interest. Every year, they demand a certain sum and it's up to you whether to comply fully, partly or not at all. That influences this group's stance towards you. If you give your wife (!) only half the amount she wanted, she'll be more likely to start a rebellion. On the other hand, if you provide the merchants with even more money than they said, they'll love you!


Imperial Conquest 2

Serious Games 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC
This is an interesting one. At heart, it is what is usually referred to as a grand strategy game, but using the presentation and mechanics of a tactical wargame. So thinking big, but building on an established and well-known foundation intended for a different scale. All that produced without real corporate backing. The risk is the makers overextending themselves, of trying to achieve too much, is certainly there.

Imperialism

Frog City / SSI 1997
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Europe in the 19th century: military superpowers trying to take over the world. Whether it is direct wars and takeover of land or acquiration of 'colonies' - these were troubled times.

In several scenarios (defined by their starting date, each representing a slightly different historical situation) or on a random map, the players each take over one of the 'relevant' (i.e. powerful) countries trying to achieve total world domination. The final step for this is to be elected by the one of the council meetings which occur on a regular basis.


Imperialism 2: The Age of Exploration

Frog City / Mindscape 1999
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Going back in time... after the period of time which is commonly referred to as 'Imperialism', the series tackles the European takeover of the American continent (or a random world substituting for the 'real' one).


Imperium

Electronic Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

So, what makes this game so 'dry'? Well, just look at the screenshots. Apart from the 3D starmap everything is white and gray. Furthermore there's no sound. 'Why play this game then?', some of you might say. WAIT! You're about to miss a great game...As I said, it's a very complex and deep game, but luckily I've managed to find the manual for detailed information.


Imperium Romanum

EGO Software / Rainbow Arts 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC
Graduating from promotional games to full priced ones isn't all that trivial. Where Abenteuer Europa may have been quite alright by the standards of the promotional genre, it wouldn't have looked so hot in the 50$ range. Which begs the question whether Imperium Romanum is just such a conversion. Some sprites, at least, look awfully familiar, even if they appear is formally different roles…

Impossible Mission
