Karateka

karateka_000.png
Broderbund 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Long before your encounter with wicked Jaffar and conquest of make-belief Persia you used to be a karate martial artist sporting a fancy kimono. Your formerly sworn enemy was a cruel japanese warlord Akuma who having besеt your country had also kidnapped your beloved Princess Mariko. I don't suppose you need further directions now, do you? As far as the old "good guys vs bad guys" tradition you must now follow the trail of Akuma into his fortress situated up on a cliff, defeat a number of his guards along the way who are also trained in karate, and finally vanquish the tyrant himself and save the princess. In this game steel weapons have not been invented yet, so you can only rely on your bare knuckles and feet.


Knight Games

English Software 1986
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

The Middle Ages: was it an age of chivalry and knights in shining armors? Or a dark age of oppression and plague? We'll maybe never know for sure. One thing is for sure though: people liked brawling back then - just like today! And that makes all the other questions completely useless and uninteresting!


Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny

Westwood Studios 1997
Genre: RPG, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

As an heir you often stand before one of those big questions: How do you want to honour your predecessor's legacy? Are you going to stay true to your roots, or do you wish to go your own ways? As far as computer games are concerned the first one seems to be more profitable. For as much as people tend to complain about constant rehashes, the fact that there are endless series of suspiciously familiar titles, which only stall when the first real innovations start to show up, proves this strategy right. You certainly can count the number of games which successfully maintain the balance between the old (to count as a sequel) and the new (to be a game of its own) on one hand. One of the few that mastered this tightrope walk is Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny. And the best part of it is that there are signs of a very similar conflict in the story of the game itself.


Last Action Hero

Psygnosis 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 0/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A whole bunch of unvoluntary humor! This game confirm several cliches at once.

1. A movie conversion

The game has nothing (really nothing) to do with the film. Some very short video excerpts are shown betweenthe levels but that's all. A few characters and settings from the film show up but they are futile.


Law of the West

Accolade 1986
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

You know what would suck even more than living in a town where everyone does not only own a gun and always walks around carrying it, but is also trigger happy? Being the person who is obliged to uphold law and order in such a town. However, in a computer game where the worst thing which can happen to you is the game over screen, it can actually turn into fun.


Little Big Adventure

Adeline 1994
Genre: Adventure, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Little Big Adventure' is probably a typical game of the widely spread 'action-adventure' genre. First a story which carries the game to satisfy the adventure part: The inhabitants of the fictional planet Twinsun suffer from the terror regime of the tyrant FunFrock. He has the power to produce clones which control and suppress the people with Big-Brother-like methods. One of the victims is Twinsen, who is in search for a magical legend of the planet to overthrow FunFrock and liberate the poor people. This rebel rolemodel is up to the player so he can fully live up to his insurgence phantasies. For complete disaster Twinsens wife gets kidnapped which brings up even more urge for revenge and activates protective instincts.


Los Justicieros

Dinamic Multimedia 1996
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

The Zorton brothers and their dangerous criminal band threaten the town. You won’t find any worse kind to the west of the Pecos River, but they won’t find any better shooter than you (let’s hope). Prepare your revolver, and get ready to shoot in this famous Spanish arcade conversion.


Lost Dutchman Mine

Magnetic Images 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

There is a mine filled with gold somewhere, and old miners like you are attracted to this kind of thing. So you travel, expend all the money on your pockets and then do what has to be done: running around the desert in search of gold to expend on the search for gold.


Lure of the Temptress

Revolution Software / Virgin Interactive 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

[Mr Creosote] Lure of the Temptress is the first game made by the British development studio Revolution Software. They later became quite popular, especially with the Broken Sword series of games which they update and market to this very day. Their older games, including this one, have been released as freeware in the meantime.


Mad City

000001.png
Konami 1988
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

We have this Crocodile Dundee wannabee, who is actually an action hero, and a kidnapped woman, who we will try to rescue, but... who cares? What you want to know is that this is considered as one of the worst games of the console, but is that true? Or is there more behind this genre-mixing game?
