Master Axe: The Genesis of MysterX

Axe To Grind / Islona 1997
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

No, this is not the sequel to Golden Axe. Apparently, there is a bloke called "Neil Axe" who is/was a martial arts champion. Apparently, he is not famous enough to have a Wikipedia article, but he was considered big enough to have a game made about a marketing stunt he pulled off in the 1980s when (unconfirmed claim of the game) he and some of his students made a tour all through the USA. In practice, this means that you'll get a standard 1-on-1 fighter in front of different scenic backgrounds. While the four selectable characters of the main (and only working) game mode are sort of appropriate for the "serious" kung-fu theme, the opponents clearly fall into the wrestling circus variety, complete with silly costumes, equipment etc.

Metal & Lace: The Battle of the Robo Babes

MegaTech Software 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Unless you happen to speak the Japanese language, you probably only get those rare glimpses into their entertainment culture (like me). Oh, of course, I've watched Akira and I have played the Street Fighter games. Thinking about it, this whole game console world is very Japanese (which is maybe the reason why it always stayed alien to me), and, granted, Italian plumbers getting high on mushrooms to fight turtles are fairly weird. Though Nintendo is just the "family friendly" side.

Metal Mutant

Silmarils 1991
Genre: Puzzle, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

As everybody knows, technology is evil. Some day, it machines will take over control and make humans their slaves. Comparing the amount of fictional coverage this theory gets to visions of less grim futures, it seems impossible it'll not come true. This game is yet another version of this well-known story. This time, mankinds only hope is a cyborg, the Metal Mutant of the title.

Mortal Kombat

Midway 1993
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Playing Mortal Kombat is a pure pleasure. Or pain, depending how well you are doing. The game offers everything a lover of fighting games could wish for - fast paced action, tonns of moves, punches and kicks, all of which can get combined, decent opponents, each with special attacks and a lot of blood. In addition, some extras, such as small skill tests and the introduction of all characters makes the game very well rounded.

Mortal Kombat II

Midway Games 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Mortal Kombat II. Sequel to the fighting game that made gore a selling point, this game takes that to new heights, with new fatalities and combat techniques, different types of finishers, and a cast of twelve playable characters, two boss characters and two hidden characters for you to test your skill against.

Myth: History in the Making

System 3 Software Ltd 1989
Genre: Action, Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

A magical journey through time would be the theme of this yet another great game, and particularly its ZX-Spectrum version. You, a brave lad with adventurous spirit embark on a mission to fly back in time and change the course of history which was maliciously altered by an entity called Dameron, solve all the puzzles, defeat the dark gods, who prevailed with help of Dameron in the alternative past, and finally face the demon himself in a vicious battle, which must ultimately determine the fate of mankind and the entire Universe!


Mastetronic 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

We know ninjas are mostly bad guys (especially black ones), but imagine if you were a good one? I bet you'd want to save some princess from one of those ubiquitous miscreants, right? Deal! Princess Di-Di (really now?) has been kidnapped by evil Akuma (wait, didn't you annihilate that bully back in Karateka?!) who locked her up in the fortress and set up guards around the place. Your task is to break through Akuma's security and follow the Princess' trail into the fortress by collecting 7 idols, which she mindfully dropped to help her liberator. Deja Vu anyone?

North & South

Infogrames 1989
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] North & South was the first Amiga game on this website. It was a conscious choice: For me, it always represented an era of graphically attractive and relatively lightweight, but fun games. It had always been one of my favourites when it came to wasting half an hour with a friend. Even today, it reminds me of more innocent times…

One Must Fall 2097

Epic Megagames 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Its emerging shareware scene was one of the main draws towards the IBM PC platform for gaming in the early 1990s. Unlike the tightly controlled games console ecosystems, this platform gave smaller developers opportunities to make something against the usual conventions and consequently drew players as well.


Apex Designs 2001
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

When do you get into legal trouble? Running over or shooting at people is a sure way. Though imitating another company's product too closely might also already be enough. You might get away with it in the latter case if you're choosing your steps carefully, as this game teaches us. It also teaches us that with some major bravado, the former can be done without negative consequences as well.
