Worms

Team 17 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Now, this is quite a famous game and, unlike others, it’s popular with a reason. You get the lemmings, give them weapons (after changing the little suicidal rodents to worms) and you get an action game with plenty of explosions and collateral damage.


Wurmi aus Frankfurt

spiele_000.png
? 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Following the motto of never breaking for anything, the player's avatar bolts across the screen at breakneck speed, just to swallow a beer from time to time. The only thing which could stop him would be the screen borders. Almost sounds like a Werner game, but there are a few differences. The most striking one first: the beer will not get you drunk, but stretches you. Also, the protagonist does not come from Schleswig Holstein, but from Frankfurt, and it is not a rocker, but a worm. Welcome to the world of Wurmi aus Frankfurt.


WWF Raw

Ljn 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

WWF RAW - the reference to digital showfights. The ridiculous wrestling-scene is presented absolutely serious. And that's good for all who are amused by clearly missing but apparently very painful hooks and for those who still can't understand why two wrestlers are trying to kill each other in the ring, but having a nice barbecue together after the fight (are there any?).


WWF Wrestlemania

Acclaim 1995
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

WWF Wrestlemania - The name says it all. The official license has both its advantages and disadvantages for the game designers. Much room for creativity concerning character design and playing modes does not remain, but these are of course advantages, either. Because well-known fighter "personalities" already exist to whom the followers of this "sport" connect different cliché attributes, the typically ridiculous plot of an average fighting game can fortunately not be found. Another point is that potential weaknesses of the playability will be easier looked over by the players because of the disciples' emotional link to their idols. The designers could therefore put all their efforts in a conversion as "realistic" as possible.

Twilight / Ocean 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

A wrestling game on the Amiga made by Ocean in 1991? This couldn't have gone right! Surprisingly, it is not nearly as bad as expected. In decent graphical style – with big, distinct sprites – large men homoerotically grab each other and it is fun! There you have your conclusion.


X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse

X-MenMutantApocalypse_00000.png
Capcom 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

The X-Men are Marvel's most successful team of superheros. And that is actually surprising if you know a bit about the history of this series. It was started back in the mid-60s, like so many others. But the X-Men never really made it, the sales couldn't compare to the Fantastic Four and all the others. So their story ended in 1970: the series was discontinued. No more stories of Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Iceman. Gone the threat of Magneto, the Juggernaut and the Sentinels.


Xadium

Mr Chip Software 1987
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Plus/4

Everything was so easy 'back in the days'. Just throw together a action-packed game concept in which you control some vehicle in some tricky situation, add some nice graphics, mix it up and there you are: a finished game.


Xmas Lemmings

[align=left style=margin-left:15em][i]Who trudges there through snow and night?
It is the lemmings! Clad red and white?
Where is the fuzzy green haired mop?

A warming hat that is of course,


Yes Prime Minister

Mosaic 1987
Genre: Strategy, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Yes Prime Minister is, as the name suggests, a computer game based on BBC2's TV show of the same name which started as Yes Minister in 1980 got renamed when the protagonist got promoted.


Yie Ar KUNG-FU

yiear01.png
Imagine / Konami 1985
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Aspiring youngster Oolong wants to become Grand Master of Kung-Fu. To achieve this, he has to defeat ten opponents (one after another, not all at the same time).

Nothing special so far, the mid-80s had their fair share of beat 'em ups (and many good ones). What sets Yie Ar Kung-Fu (I'll drop the capitalization seen on the title screen here) apart is the opponents. In the seminal hits of the time (Karate Champ and all), the player mostly faced faceless enemies who were identical to each other and also to the player. In Yie Ar (to shorten this even further), each opponent has his or her own sprite, his or her own moves and even his or her own weapon (!).
