Bundesliga Manager Professional

bmp01.png
Software 2000 1992
Genre: Strategy, Sport
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Visiting an old acquaintance... you probably know that, not having seen each other for a long time. Maybe you think back how it was. The good old days together... back then... you have lots of fun, it was wild times, fun times and so on. Now you're facing this old friend again - and... now what? Often, everything is different. Time has cut a rift you can't bridge anymore. You two have become alienated. That's a pity then. Then, there are the cases in which you stand face to face and it is almost like no day has passed at all.


Caribbean Disaster

Silver Style / Ikarion 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Sometimes, it is like this: One major success which its originator will search to repeat for the rest of his life. Ralph Stock was responsible for Mad TV which became a deserved instant hit. Mad News' fun factor came close, but it could not receive its predecessor's business triumph. Carribean Disaster should really have been called Mad Island – instead, that is just the name of the game's location.


Christoph Kolumbus

Software 2000 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

The strategic business simulation Christoph Kolumbus was public in February 1994 by "Software 2000" on the PC and the Amiga. On the Internet, the game is sometimes called a clone of The Patrician, because it was designed by Martin Wölk who was also involved in said other game. I see more parallels with the Amiga/C64 game Spoils of War from the year 1992, though, because the game is about discovering surrounding islands from one's home base, settle and develop them, but selling goods and building new ships or military units is only possible in the home base. A free form of trade like in The Patrician where you can buy and sell goods whereever you want is not possible, you can only trade at your home harbour.

Colonization

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Once upon a time, Sid Meier along with some other people created really innovative and fresh games. But then Civilization came! Even though it was (is!) a great game, it had one negative effect on the gaming industry: It made Sid Meier & company reusing the basic idea again and again.

Der Planer

Greenwood 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

'Der Planer' is a somewhat different manager simulation because you don't build your company from scratch but you rather have to fulfill the requirements the managerial board imposed on you during a given period of time.


Der Produzent - Die Welt des Films

Silver Style / Games 4 Europe 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Der Produzent - Die Welt des Films (The Producer - The World of Film) – not just the title, but also the packaging looks very reputable and serious. Which doesn't fit the tone of the game itself at all, but more about that later. First, the obligatory clarification: This game is about producing films. For television and video distribution and later, once you've made a name for yourself and you've earned enough money to finance it, for cinema.


Der Rasende Reporter

Promotion Software 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

We're slowly turning into a propaganda site for the government - this is already the third game financed by them we're presenting! No idea what we're trying to compensate with that, wishful thinking at our school days maybe (since they're all 'educational' games) or bad conscience because of the terrorist acts.... er... better stop talking about that now.


Die Fugger

The Electric Ballhaus / Bomico 1988
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Although they originally grew tremendously rich through trade, the Fugger family would not be remembered today if it weren't for the way it used its wealth: As creditors of the German royalty, their political influence went as high as the emperor himself. Just a couple of hundred years later, the then thriving home computer market encouraged many young people to learn programming and make games themselves – the age of the bedroom developer unshackled by corporate interests. The parallels should be obvious…
