Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die

booth01.png
R. Noyes 1996
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die (PUTPBAD for short) is one of the most infamous pieces of self-referential interactive fiction ever. The game only has one location, one object and one puzzle. You start the game in a non-descript town square in a non-descript New England town with no idea who you are or why you're there. A phone booth sits in the centre of the town square, mocking you with its presence. If you pick it up, the game warns you, you'll die.


Pinball Dreams

21st Century Entertainment 1992
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Everybody knows pinball. Everybody knows pinball games. Everybody knows this game, because it is the one which started the whole craze about the genre. Many even think it was the first pinball game on computers ever. That is of course completely untrue. There have been many pinball games before, many popular ones on the C64 and some even on the Amiga. None pushed the genre into the centre of attention like this one did, though.


Pinball Fantasies

21st Century Entertainment 1992
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Released the same year as its predecessor, Pinball Fantasies again provides you with four new tables for you to enjoy.

Partyland
The name says it all: you're entering the plastic world of a theme park. Very well placed targets and ramps, clear and clever interaction between them. Two ramps are only accessable via the third paddle on the upper half of the table. Partyland is pure fun - just what such a park should be!


Pinball Illusions

Digital Illusions / 21st Century Entertainment 1995
Genre: Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As a kid I never liked video game pinballs. All hopes of recreating the light and sound effects, and the excitement of hitting targets with the silver ball were gone in their pixel-based counterparts. Landscape-oriented monitors and TVs were a big hurdle, as well as the primitive physics models of those first games. There were, of course, exceptions such as Night Mission Pinball by SubLOGIC (the company behind Flight Simulator II), which offered realistic ball control, but still came painfully short on the visuals department.


Pinball Mania

Spidersoft / 21st Century Entertainment 1995
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pinball Mania is one of a whole slew of games which came out after the success of Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies. As usual, there are four tables.


Ping-Pong

Genre: Sport
Rating: 4/6

System: C64

Yeah, I know… I'd rather play normal tennis :) but for those without enough space or without the physical condition, the Ping Pong (table tennis) would do. And, to be sincere, table tennis is a pretty decent way to lose you evening.


Pirates!

Microprose 1987
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

'Pirates!' is surely one of the most well known computer games of all times. Almost every gamer who had a Commodore C64 will sigh when hearing the name. How many time have I spent in front of my home computer playing it? Months, I guess. How many ships have I sunk? Thousands maybe. I could continue this list even further.


Pirates! Gold

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC

First of all, all comparisons are referring to the original Pirates! and the PC version of Pirates! Gold. Read the first review for a detailed covering of the gameplay itself. It is almost identical in this version.


Pit-Fighter

Teque / Domark 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Pre-Mortal Kombat, Pit-Fighter had already showed off what could be done with digitized video in an arcade fighting game. Nevertheless, it didn't have nearly the impact as certain other genre games. Although that wasn't even its only specialty.


Pitfall

? 1984
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Now, before you go "seen that mayan thing already", this is NOT Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. This is ANOTHER GAME. NO jumping over pits. This is flying-into pits. Why? To get points and test your reflexes.
