Battlezone 2000

BBC Microcomputer System - Released - 1983

This is a wargame of the 21st Century in which you have control of the forces opposing a single enemy unit known as the Ogre. There are ten levels of play. Your mission is to stop the Ogre from leaving the bottom of the map. The only way to do this is to destroy all its tread units. The Ogre itself is a computer-controlled supertank, which is bristling with weapons. It has missile systems, main and secondary batteries as well as a host of anti-personnel weapons. The Ogre is a tread or track vehicle, and the number of "squares" it is able to move in any one turn is governed by the number of...

Chuckie Egg

Chuckie Egg

MS-DOS - Released - 1989

In the game you play Hen House Harry who has to collect 12 (a dozen) eggs from each level, while avoiding the ducklings. The levels each occupy a single screen, and are made up of platforms, ladders and lifts (or elevators), and are thus similar to those in classic platform game Donkey Kong. Corn can also be collected, which stops the time limit from ticking down and also stops the bonus, collected when the level is completed, from decreasing. The ducklings also eat the corn, however. There are only 8 distinct levels. The ninth level is a copy of level 1, the tenth is a copy of level 2, and...

Never Mind

MS-DOS - Released - 1989

The game is played in a 3D isometric environment. Each isometric square represents a tile. At the beginning of each level, a picture made up of sixteen tiles will be displayed to the player.

Throughout a level, warps must be found which allow the player to change from...
