Ace of Aces is a 1st person, 2D flight simulation. You're on-board a British RAF Mosquito, maverick fighter bomber. Your mission ... stop enemy trains, intercept the terrible German V-1 buzz bombs, sink the German U-boats and down the Nazi bombers. Are you ready for this challenge?
Atari 7800 - Released - June 1, 1988
Ace of Aces puts you in the cockpit of the Mosquito, the maverick RAF fighter bomber of World War II. It's white-knuckle aerial combat simulation, combining the exhilaration of flight with the gut-wrenching pressure of enemy confrontation. During World War II, Mosquitos downed 659 enemy aircraft and 500 V-1 Buzz Bombs. Your only allies are your wits, your weapons, and your radar. Are you equal to the challenge? Down the Nazi bombers, sink the U-boats, outrun the V-1 Buzz Bombs and stop the enemy trains to release the POWs. Should you fly through a storm or around? Navigate carefully, consult your intelligence reports and maps to make a decision. Choose your weapons and fuel wisely--once you're on a mission there's no going back. Select one mission or any combination. If you complete all four successfully--and make it back alive--you'll become the most distinguished flight veteran of World War II--the Ace of Aces!

Apollo 18: Mission to the Moon simulates a fictional mission to the Moon in the early 1980's, following on from the last real flight (Apollo 17) before NASA cancelled the program. One of the game's key features is digitised speech, which sounds crackly like a real mission controller would. Telemetry screens provide realism, with the player having to set items and computer programs to get the crucial GO signal. The game is split into several sequences. First is launch, where pressing the button to stop a moving bar at the right point determines success. Course corrections and an orbital rendezvous (to undock the lunar module) are next. The player has to land the module safely on one of three possible landing sites before running out of fuel. The moonwalk is next, and must be completed in a set time before returning to orbit. On the way home the astronaut performs a spacewalk to capture and repair a satellite. Finally there is the re-entry sequence and splashdown.

This cyberpunk action-adventure's puzzling title actually refers to a real-life dense cluster of stars in our Milky Way galaxy. The Syndicate, an unpopular governing alliance has taken over the Earth and among the resistance against them, you are an undercover agent who must unravel the plots of conspiracy-seeking journalists, mad scientists, and the Syndicate alliance. You land in a group that survived the effects of an mind-controlling virus, and disembark from a spaceship to a space station. However, only you and a companion survive an attack by Syndicate forces. At some points, you can speak to your companion, to issue orders to him. There's three levels, the first and third being virtual rail shooters and the second a graphic adventure. The shooting levels are just a matter of aiming and shooting enemies in each room. In the second level, instead of using your weapon, you will have to use different objects to be able to escape. You can move between rooms, and manipulate objects where the cursor becomes a hand. If you do not win a battle which does not lead to the correct solution of the game, you die and must return to the beginning of the level.

The Black Knight has brought misery to the land, and the end way to end this is to enter his haunted house to slay him. You are the brave adventurer taking on this quest through 14 increasingly-tough zones.

There are enemies walking, flying and hovering through this, and many of them respawn. Unusually your weapon to take them on (rocks) can be thrown through 360 degrees, which aims to make the gameplay more realistic and methodical. The screens were linked by hub screens, which the player passes through simply by clicking on a door.

Killed Until Dead is a sophisticated mystery game with a leaning towards humor. The player has to solve every aspect of a murder case before it happens. The five biggest mystery writers in the world have gathered together at a hotel and one of them will be offing another unless Hercule Holmes can crack the case. Gameplay is a cross between the board-game Clue and the paper-based logic puzzles in which the player must eliminate clues in sequence. To solve the forthcoming murder, you will have to search the suspects' rooms and confront them with the evidence and set the hotel's security cameras to record secret meetings. By questioning the suspects as to what they know about certain people, rooms and objects, they may reveal combinations they know will not be involved in the murder - perhaps if it involves the gun, the killer will not be Lord Peter Flimsey, for example. However, there's a catch. If he accuses the wrong suspect, he might be the one who's Killed Until Dead - they don't take kindly to false accusation.
