Arcade Pool

ArcadePool01.png
Team 17 1994
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Not all sports translate well to the computer. Pool, in particular, is tricky, because it is essentially a geometry game. A computer player could easily pocket every single ball perfectly, as it could precompute the trajectories of all balls. Human players could be supported by showing exactly what would end up where before a shot is committed. Though where would be the fun in all of that?

Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura

Arcanum00.jpg
Troika Games / Sierra 2001
Genre: RPG
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

At first glance Arcanum looks like a role playing game full of great ideas: Its main attraction is its fantasy world, which is set at the time of an industrial revolution, that is about to turn it into a science fiction setting. It is a refreshingly unique place, full of whimsical magic and technical marvels, that has great potential for interesting twists to age-old cliches: How does an ageless being, like an elf, react to the rise of science, which is about to make the magic, that has kept him alive so far, obsolete? Is there a cheaper workforce than orcs, which can be exploited at will, for they are obviously evil and therefore deserve no less? Or what about safety: Should a wizard, whose magical power has an unpredictable effect on machines, be allowed to get close to steam engines or trains? There are so many new stories that could be told…


Archipelagos

Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Archipelagos is a strategy game where the player has to clear islands of the poisonous "Blood of the Ancients". In order to achieve this, the player has to find a certain number of stones on the computer generated islands which then must be destroyed. Once this is done, the player must find an obelisk and destroy it as well to bring about peace and tranquility again for the island.


Archon – The Light and the Dark

System: C64, PC (CGA)

Have you ever heard about Napoleon? Yeah, the genial goblin-like garlic-eater. It's strange how along the time, the good games that had a look at this formidable person...simply failed to appear.


Arkanoid

Taito 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The era and time of this story is unknown. After the mothership Arkanoid was destroyed, a craft Vaus scrambled away from it. Oh yes, we're speaking of a deep, involving background story here! In fact we're speaking of a Breakoutclone here.


Arkanoid II: Revenge of Doh

Taito 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

The classic arcade game is back, ready to make use of the latest home entertainment technology the world can offer. But did we get the original with a facelift, or is it an actual sequel? Is it still fun, fast and unforgiving? Why the hell does it even include a story? The answers to these, and maybe to more questions, are just a few words away.


Armor Attack

It's heading this waBOOM! Crap...

Ascii Sector

asciisec01.png
Christian Knudsen 2009
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Remaking Privateer... many have tried, quite a few have succeeded. Yet, Ascii Sector stands out even from the group of good ones. The selling point: The whole game uses the the ANSI (ironically, not actually ASCII) character set (in 16 colours) to create the graphical environment the player moves in. This is because the game takes place in another part of space: the Ascii Sector. Like the Gemini Sector found in the original Privateer, the Ascii Sector consists of four quadrants, numerous star systems and many planets. Just (obviously) not the same ones from the original game.


Ashes of Empire

Midnight / Mirage 1992
Genre: Action, Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

First came Midwinter… and then the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Whether you see a causality in this sequence of events or not – the illegitimate child of these two followed soon enough, and it was called Ashes of Empire. From the (at the time very much current) situation of the former Soviet Union, the game takes its scenario: A large country, a major military has collapsed under its own economic weight. Its former republics are plunging into anarchy, and not the good kind. Armed former military units, now turned into modern-day highwaymen, are roaming the countries, leaving a trail of fear and suffering among the already poor and underfed population whereever their aimless plundering takes them. Only some local administrative structures can still uphold at least a bit of order.
