Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord

Sir-Tech 1984
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Once upon a time, the legendary world of Llylgamyn was ruled by an Overlord, appointed by the Council of Sages. When Trebor, the local hero, became the Overlord, he became obsessed with power. He found out about an artifact, a magical amulet of great power. He wasn't the only one looking for it: the evil wizard Werdna was only a step behind Trebor's efforts to find the artifact. Trebor found it first, however, only to have it stolen by Werdna almost immediately. Werdna didn't know how to handle the amulet properly, caused an earthquake beneath Trebor's castle, which creates several levels of mazes. To avoid looking like a complete idiot, Werdna announced that it was his intent to create the maze, so that he could move in at the lowest level. Trebor managed to clear out the first four levels of the maze, which he then pronounced to be his Proving Grounds for everybody interested to becoming a part of this private guard. You are one of these candidates...

Wodan - The Trial

Arbeitskreis Spielkultur 1999
Genre: Strategy, Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

If a game comes along with a producer like "Arbeitskreis Spielkultur" (sounds like some typically German dry official office), you should be careful. If the plot revolves around Norse mythology, the expectation of some completely non-understandable crap made by roleplaying geeks.

Wolfenstein 3D

id Software 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

This is an action game which is commonly seen as the great-grandfather of all ego shooters. It was the year 1992 when this virus, disguised as Shareware, was travelling across busy schoolyards and noisy scene parties, spreading from drive to drive. The shooting orgy by American star programmer John Carmack had an irresistable appeal to the teenagers who hadn't yet been cauterised by mass-produced imitations of this ego perspective, and the extra episodes which were available for sale made John Carmack a millionaire overnight.

Wonder Project J

Enix 1994
Genre: RPG, Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

Based on Pinocchio and with a simple AI as main character, Wonder Project J consists on raising Pino, a robot that looks like a kid, to make him become human like.

All is done with a controller different to the usual one in a console game, as you use a mouse, on of those add-ons that only one or two more games made use of. It moves around a fairy robot that can carry objects, to put them into your inventory or getting them out of it, order Pino to move or stop, and scold (and doing it again, hit) or praise him.

World Circuit: The Grand Prix Race Simulation

Microprose 1992
Genre: Simulation, Sport
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Based on the 1991 Formula 1 Season. It was ahead of any competitor, quickly establishing itself as the market leader in the 90's. With then unknown race physics and graphics it pushed Diving games into a new path of simulation.

World Darts

1001 Limited 1987
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Darts... ever heard of that? Those pointy thingies you throw at that round thingy hanging on the wall? Yeah right - that's it. This is Darts... 501 to be precise. The rules of it are simple - the points you score are subtracted from 501 till you reach 0. However you got to reach this by hitting a "double" field. Bit of mathematics involved here. ;) The player first reaching 0 wins (of course). Easy concept and great to be played in a pub. Well - and also on a computer. I found the game to be best playable with a joystick - it's a lot of fun then. If you want to try your luck with the keyboard go ahead. It's a lot more difficult, but still playable. The controls rely on a system I'd like to call 'system of the unsure hand troubled by gravity' - basically you give the hand holding the dart a push to one side and it always goes a little too far, which is by concept. After a while you get the hang of it though and learn to calculate those motions.

World Karate Championship

System Three Software / Epyx 1986
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

A well-known classic from the arcade from 1986. Business as usual: Fight against your opponents who become more stronger from round to round and try to collect as many point as possible...

You start as Karateka with the white belt - you can choose Egypt or Australia. It does not matter at all because the starting location has no influence on the game itself. After 3 rounds of fighting you either go to New York or to Rio de Janeiro - and that already was the little excursion because after round no. 3 the background graphic does not change any more. At least as far as I could play...


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

? 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.


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?).
