Pinball Illusions

illusion_000.png
Digital Illusions / 21st Century Entertainment 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As a kid I never liked video game pinballs. All hopes of recreating the light and sound effects, and the excitement of hitting targets with the silver ball were gone in their pixel-based counterparts. Landscape-oriented monitors and TVs were a big hurdle, as well as the primitive physics models of those first games. There were, of course, exceptions such as Night Mission Pinball by SubLOGIC (the company behind Flight Simulator II), which offered realistic ball control, but still came painfully short on the visuals department.


Pinball Mania

Spidersoft / 21st Century Entertainment 1995
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pinball Mania is one of a whole slew of games which came out after the success of Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies. As usual, there are four tables.


Ping-Pong

Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Yeah, I know… I'd rather play normal tennis :) but for those without enough space or without the physical condition, the Ping Pong (table tennis) would do. And, to be sincere, table tennis is a pretty decent way to lose you evening.


Pirates!

Microprose 1987
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

'Pirates!' is surely one of the most well known computer games of all times. Almost every gamer who had a Commodore C64 will sigh when hearing the name. How many time have I spent in front of my home computer playing it? Months, I guess. How many ships have I sunk? Thousands maybe. I could continue this list even further.


Pirates! Gold

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC

First of all, all comparisons are referring to the original Pirates! and the PC version of Pirates! Gold. Read the first review for a detailed covering of the gameplay itself. It is almost identical in this version.


Pit-Fighter

Teque / Domark 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pre-Mortal Kombat, Pit-Fighter had already showed off what could be done with digitized video in an arcade fighting game. Nevertheless, it didn't have nearly the impact as certain other genre games. Although that wasn't even its only specialty.


Pitfall

? 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Now, before you go "seen that mayan thing already", this is NOT Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. This is ANOTHER GAME. NO jumping over pits. This is flying-into pits. Why? To get points and test your reflexes.


Pizza Connection

Software 2000 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6

System: PC

Ah, Pizza Connection! A gem from the German biz sim wave of the early 90s which, above everything, impresses with its immensely varied (legal and illegal) possible activities.

Plot:


Pizza Tycoon

Software 2000 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Pizza Tycoon is not only the original tycoon game that started a whole niche, but also one of the best ones. It had all: a relatively simple concept, a mix of several gaming styles, money and property management and cartoonish graphics. Add to it tacky music, several amusing sub-games and several ways to make money, and you have something that should be hardly bearable to a hardcore gamer. However, include a very deep business strategy, mix it all together, and suddenly you have a very decent game that everybody would like.


Plan 9 from Outer Space

Gremlin 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

It is generally accepted as the 'worst movie ever'. It has everything what makes a film funny: acting of the worst kind, a story which seems to have been written within ten minutes, extremely cheap sceneries (gravestones made of paper which the actors stumble over...) and ridiculous post-production. And best of all: it is not meant to be funny as in all these boring modern films, but completely involuntarily humor!
