Return of Double Dragon

ReturnOfDoubleDragon_00000.png
Technos 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

That's a game which doesn't require much talking about. The programmers intentionally left out an intro or a story as the subtitle says it all: 'The Sleeping Dragon has awoke.' Ah yes. In other words: 'The 1st part was quite successful so let's make more money.'


Ring Cycle

Maelstrom / Psygnosis 1996
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Anyone who has ever complained about Lords of Midnight 3 should play Ring Cycle. Granted, that may not be such a large group since not all that many have played the former game. Or even heard of it. Nevertheless, these selected few should give this game an honest try. Even if it is only to make themselves feel better about LoM. Much better! Using the game engine already deployed in LoM, Ring Cycle strips away the strategic aspects and goes for a pretty pure roleplaying approach. Maybe with a little 3D shooter mixed in.


Rise of the Robots

Mirage / Time Warner Interactive 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Unfortunately, everything you have read about this game is true. Well, not everything. Those paid reviews at the time of release putting the game in a 90% rating range aren't. But you know that already. Why should I even bother to join in and repeat it all? Well, I've been reviewing a shitload of fighting games lately and somehow, the run wouldn't be complete without this one. So let's get it over with.


Rise of the Triad: Dark War

River City Ransom

Technos Japan 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

Your girl has been kidnapped, and obviously it is up to you rescue her, punching, kicking and throwing anybody who gets in your way, while building up for the final match.

This is a fighting game, a side-scrolling one where you advance while a series of enemies comes towards you to be beaten to a pulp, and you do not need to do this alone, as a friend can be with you, adding fun, and danger as you can hit each other. But it is not in the fighting itself where the novelty lies. You techniques are just punching, kicking, grabing unconscious enemies or weapons and jumping, all of this while finding more powerful enemies as you advance. All this is as usual.


Road Rash

Electronic Arts 1992
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Road Rash - one of the few signature games of the Sega Mega Drive (apart from Sonic, of course). The Amiga and the Mega Drive had quite a few things in common hardware-wise, so porting this successful hit was only a question of time. A year after the original release, it finally appeared.


RoboSport

The Dreamers Guild / Maxis / Ocean 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] The years going by is often a pretty well-working filter when it comes to the value of cultural products. Important things are kept alive, but those which are not noteworthy disappear into obscurity. This makes looking back at a past time so much easier!


Sabor

Gamos Ltd. 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Here is a wonderful game – a simulation of hand-to-hand fighting created in a country that had been called the USSR. In the early 90s, the creation of computer games in the former Soviet Union still began to develop, and game "Sabor" is one of the brightest representatives of the dawn Russian entertainment industry.


Saboteur

Durell Software 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Of all Spectrum games, Saboteur was one of the most unique and entertaining ones. Unlike most Spectrum games, it was neither pure action, nor a text adventure, and not even an arcade. The game was a blend of action and puzzle; quick thinking was more important than quick fingers, and keeping your cool was they key to success. Good memory or at least decent mapping skills were not useless, either.


Schwert und Magie 1: Das geheimnisvolle Kraut

smagie01.png
German Design Group 1989
Genre: RPG
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64
You believed episodic computer game series are a modern-day invention? Even before this concept was put into a first spotlight by Simulmondo in the early 1990s, the German Design Group had a go at it. Probably inspired by the commercial success of the Fighting Fantasy line of books, their Schwert und Magie games show a striking resemblance on many counts at least.
