Paradroid II

Marc S. Seter 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

Although the C64 classic had been remade on the Amiga by Graftgold themselves as Paradroid 90, this version had its rough edges. Paradroid II, a freeware remake of the original, came out a few years later. Hard to believe in these days of lawsuits, trademark, patent and 'intellectual property' trolling: The programmer got through with not only using the original name, but also with producing pretty much a carbon copy of the graphics and much of the gameplay.


Parashooter

Peter Leahy 1998
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Parashooter - one of the two games I never managed to make a screenshot of! Highly promising slogan, eh? Well, it does show some technical sophistication on the programmer's side at least. Or it could be my inability to use Windows where this game runs in...


Paratrooper

Mons & Simen 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 4.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Paratrooper is quite an old game (published in the same year as the much better-known Alleycat, 1984) and, as many of those games, graphically none too advanced but quite addictive.

Storyline:

The story, if the lack of one can be named such, is very simple. You command an anti-air battery and the enemy is trying to destroy you. They're trying this in two different ways:


PataNoir

Simon Christiansen 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

The stereotype hard-boiled gumshoe is hired by an elderly Baron (by proxy through his butler) to find his 'free-spirited' daughter who might have run away with a shady suitor. The Big Sleep, here we come! Though instead of delving into the dark depths which lurk beneath the surface of society, PataNoir is a game about language. In particular, it plays with one of the most common stylistic devices of the genre: something being described as being like something completely different.


Payback

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.


PC-Man

Orion Software 1982
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One of the first pacman varieties for the PC, and it still runs without a slowdown. It has all the elements you've come to expect from a pacman clone: the ghosts, the dots, bonus fruit etc.

It also comes with sound, and quite nice sound at that. This game, however, has one thing most of the other clones lack: addictiveness. It's actually fun to play, and really gets you back into those arcade spheres. One tiny thing is different: I don't remember a ghost in red and white blocks, but that's probably just my graphics card playing up. Or the latest fashion among ghosts.


PCKaiser++

Martin Gelter 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Sometimes, one small idea is enough to make a good game. Kaiser is a great C64 classic many people know. There are also lots of remakes. Only few of those tried to expand the gameplay, though.


Penguin Adventure

Konami 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: MSX

If your girlfriend were terminally ill, would you go to the ends of the world to get her a special but dubious kind of cure like golden apple? No? Well, Pentarou the Penguin would! He might even go into outer space if necessary! No time to lose now, hit the road at once and help this little short-winged globetrotter accomplish his mission safe and quick for the journey is long and dangerous and Penguette the Princess is getting worse...

Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Phantom Club. A brotherhood of supernatural heroes. A place where impossible becomes possible and defies reason.

All except one, who will rebel against the new order and seek to restore the status quo. A daredevil greenhorn named Plutus, the most inexperienced of all but with fully developed alpha instinct is challenging Zarg and his puppets!


Phobia

Ratt 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The genre of horizontal shooters had early been set with standards nobody dared to break anymore. Instead, the race for perfection was on - mainly in the arcades, but also on the computers and consoles of the time.
