Arnie 2 is an isometric action game. Although it's obvious to which Hollywood actor the game's name alludes, Arnie 2 is not a licensed title and not based on any movie. It is the sequel to the Amiga / C64 platform game Arnie (1992). Unlike the previous title it has been developed in-house by Zeppelin. Fast reflexes and a lust for violence are required for success here. Your average muscleman shoots and bombs his way through four enemy-infested territories: Shut down a chemical plant by blowing up enough pipeline valves. Clear an airfield from enemy soldiers, tanks and helicopters. Climb from...

Released to coincide with the 1994 World Cup, this one has an overhead view similar to Sensible Soccer. Real teams are provided at both club and national level - although, contrary to what the packaging claimed, the player names are invented. The players vary in speed, and in which skills (such as heading, overhead kicks, close control and shooting) they are competent in. Running with the ball generally works better than passing. Plenty of tournaments are offered, as is the chance to edit team data and kits. One advantage it has over the original Sensible Soccer is onscreen referees and...

International Tennis lets up to four players play tennis on three different courts (grass, clay and asphalt), each with their own ball bounce. The game can be played using different match variations. You can play singles with men (five sets) or women (three sets) or play mixed with both in doubles. You can choose to take control of all players or choose a cpu-vs-cpu match. The action is seen from a third person perspective as standard is with tennis games.

Jocky Wilson's Darts Challenge is a darts game endorsed by the 1989 world champion. The game options are a 16-player tournament featuring up to four human players, a head to head game for two players, and single-player 'round the clock' (hitting the numbers 1 to 20 consecutively against a time limit). During gameplay, the whole of the board is seen. The dart cursor swirls around the screen, can be controlled in a limited fashion and is released by pressing fire.
This budget game is essentially Kikstart without the engines. It's viewed from the side, with 12 courses to complete within their respective time limits. You control the bike by setting the speed and jumping at the right moments. Hazards to negotiate include hills, walls, rocks, spikes and ice. Some of these can be circumnavigated by buying the right add-ons from the shop after each race. The amount of money you have to spend is dependent upon how quickly you completed the previous race.(Moby Games)

Each athlete has a few statistics which should be taken into...

A very simplistic, but (when the highlights are turned off) quick and surprisingly addictive Football Management game.
