Die Siedler

Blue Byte 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

British and American games usually keep their names when they're released in Germany - even if it's a translated version. That's good, makes international conversations about them easier. German companies on the other hand sometimes take really silly measures to increase their chance on the international market. Not that it has ever worked, but giving up would be silly, too. One of the effects is that German games have English names - even here. If you can't see anything strange about that, you're probably from the USA. What would you think if a game by an 'American' company would carry a title in Suaheli? To take it one step further: what would you think if a game by a German company was released in your country carrying a German title?


Die Stadt der Löwen oder The Final Singapore Sling

StadtDerLoewen01.png
PM Entertainment / Software 2000 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Singapore, Lion City. This is where the trail leads when a Japanese business man and former general of the royal army is murdered by a prostitute in London. Investigative journalists Christine and Robert smell a story, and the game's plot follows them. However, the player takes over the role of Taiko, member of a Japanese secret society, who apparently supports the two in some way.


Dingsda

PCSL 1991
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Dingsda was a popular quiz show on German television running from the mid-80s to the end of the last millenium (in fact, it was only popular until the mid-90s, but it ran for another five years after that). The basic premise: two teams of TV 'celebrities' would compete in guessing words which were explained by kindergarten children.


Discovery - In the Steps of Columbus

Impressions 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Impressions never had the best reputation with the mainstream gamers. They mainly produced quite inaccessible (granted) strategy titles. Caesar and Cohort are maybe their widest known classic titles. The vast majority of their games completely disappeared though.


Dogs of War

Elite 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Steve Bak had already ported both Commando and Ikari Warriors to the Amiga for Elite, and apparantely building on that experience, he followed that up with his original creation Dogs of War. The use of 'original' in the previous sentence being limited to the meaning of 'not being a conversion', because Dogs follows Commando's footprints very closely, but it has become a minor classic on its own right.


Dragonstone

Core Design 1995
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Chances are, you've never heard of Dragonstone. Released only on a dying computer platform whose parent company had just folded, it never became available anywhere else. So is this the undiscovered gem we've all been hoping to unearth in all these years? To be honest, I wouldn't have been able to tell you until now. It's been sitting on my shelf forever, but my memories of it could only have been described as vague at best. Maybe not the best sign, indicating it may not have been all that memorable, but then, let's give it a fair chance.


Dreadnoughts

Turcan Research Systems 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

One of the major reasons cited as being the cause of the First World War was Imperial Germany's challenge to the British naval supremacy. Prestigiously large battleships had been built on both sides, and what would you build them for, if not to finally put them to their intended use? Which, ironically, didn't really happen all through the war, then, when both sides realised that losing such super expensive ships would constitute not just a military, but also a propaganda disaster. Still, there were a couple of encounters which, in the hands of Peter Turcan, got turned into this game.


East vs West: Berlin 1948

Rainbow Arts 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The early days of the Cold War. The USSR is blocking all land transports to the western sectors of Berlin. The USA have initiated an air bridge to supply the city. But Berlin is like a tiny island in what is going to be the GDR - when it comes to war, it'll be overrun by the Red Army immediately!


Einmal Kanzler sein

01.png
Computerpartner T&S GmbH 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

In 1986, Rio Reiser had a big hit singing what he would do if he were king of Germany. With this anarcho-dadaist hymn, he poured out satirist derision all over the German political circus. Everybody was singing along and laughing, but by 1991, chancellor Helmut Kohl (who had been one of the main targets of the song's mockery) was still in office, more powerful than ever. That was when Einmal Kanzler sein (Being Chancellor) was released.
