Atlantis

Imagic 1982
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Alien Invaders, the Gorgons, are running their final assault on the city of Atlantis. The last line of defense are three guns, two positioned at the sides of the screen and one in its centre. Their lines of fire are fixed: the middle one shoots straight up, the ones on the sides fire diagonally towards the centre of the screen. The player can select which gun to shoot with by moving the controller to the left and right.


Atlas

Sunflowers 1995
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Considering that Sunflowers created games like Fugger II and the Anno series, a similar game like Atlas can't be all that bad. Surprisingly, however, this game is just a knock-off of a Japanese game from 1991 which falls far behind my expectations.


Atomix

Thalion 1990
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Known mainly as a developer of very unique and very colorful role-playing games for the Amiga, Thalion has produced several high-quality puzzle games as well. Probably the best puzzle was Atomix, a mix of timed puzzle and educational software. Over the course of ever fifty levels, the player had to combine atoms into molecules, in order to advance further.


Attila

Lüder Osmers 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

This game is the English version of the video game Caesar. It is a digital representation of the Risk board game: the playing times are a bit long but the dynamics of the game are very clear and simple especially to those who already know Risk.


Auf dem Weg nach Europa

Auswärtiges Amt 1991
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

In 1991, the EU wasn't nearly as prominent as it is now. In fact, it didn't even exist back then, because the treaties of Maastricht would only be signed a year later. However, there was the 'European Community' which was pretty much a predecessor of the EU. And it was obvious that the political and economic integration would continue, so there was a 'need' for political propaganda to soften the nationalist feelings of the population. Which part of the population is most easily influenced? Right, the children. Enter Auf dem Weg nach Europa.


Autoduel

autoduel01.png
Micromagic / Origin 1988
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Autoduel is one of the few classic games that don't deserve as much attention as it is getting. It may sound ironic that I review a game just because I don't consider it worth a review, but it isn't so. Autoduel is a very original piece of work, which is seriously flawed by inferior graphics, awkward interface and an extremely steep learning curve. Autoduel is simply the result of applying arcade principles to a pen-and-paper roleplaying game.


Avalon

Hewson Consultants 1984
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

The Dark Ages are closing in. You are a wandering lore-seeker in 5th century Britain. Oh look, you've been given a magical staff and a map, and for some wild reason you must now travel to Isle of Glass (Avalon?). There at the foot of the Glass Hill you shall dispatch your soul underground into dismal dungeons to remotely locate and banish Avelach the Lord of Chaos, who according to this old witch's prophecy shall soon bring down terrible calamities and the end of the world as we know it. Firstly, though, you must overcome his perplexing maze and its ghastly denizens to prove yourself a skilled sorcerer and a worthy opponent...


Avoid the Noid

California Merchandising Concepts, Inc. 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

For a game thats sole purpose is to advertise a pizza company, it is surprisingly full featured. Avoid the Noid features 10 different levels with 3 floors each and an extra level that includes a rooftop. The goal of the game is to reach the top floor and deliver the pizza to Doom Industries without running into a noid. A noid is an advertising character featured in Domino's commercials back in the 80s who appears as a small man wearing a red skin-tight suit with bunny ears. His sole purpose is to annoy you and prevent you from delivering your pizza in time.


Awakening

Georg Rottensteiner / The User / Spider Jerusalem 2015
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: C64

Just one more package to deliver before going home. Thankfully, the receptionist takes it. Phew, just down the elevator again… woah, what was that? An explosion? Everything goes black. Some time later, you wake up again, in the middle of some signs of destruction. Nobody's there anymore. What has happened and how to get out of there?


ああ播磨灘

AaHarimanada01.png
Sega 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Mega Drive

Raging obesity is not such a huge issue in Japan compared to countries like the USA or Russia (though I hear McDonald's is gaining foothold). Ironically enough, they nevertheless have a strange obsession with Sumo Wrestling over there – two incredibly fat guys basically turning into a big mass of jelly.
