Andre Agassi Tennis

Andre Agassi Tennis

Sega Game Gear - February 1, 1993

A game endorsed by the American player who stunned the tennis world in the early 90s with his "Image is everything" looks, sporting long hair, earrings and colorful shirts, Andre Agassi Tennis includes eight players (male and female and as expected, only Agassi is a real player) rated according to movement speed and both accuracy and strength on serve, backhand and forehand. Gameplay features all the usual moves: smashes, passing shots, volleys and all kinds of backhand and forehand plays, but unlike other games, precise positioning and timing are crucial to avoid hitting the ball outside...

Chuck Rock

Chuck Rock

Nintendo Game Boy - Released - 1993

Chuck's mad and he's not going to take it anymore! That pebble-chewing, low-life-excuse-for-a-caveman Gary Gritter made off with his wife Ophelia. Now Chuck's gotta use his oversized bod to win her back. In this high-powered adventure for the Game Boy, Chuck belly-butts, odor-kicks and rock-tosses his way through an ice age, up a volcano and into a swamp. On the way, he'll run into some pretty strange characters, like the green triceratops, the wild and wooly mammoth who's very possessive about his territory. All this plus onrushing dinosaurs, acidic bubbles and boogie men! Has Chuck got his...

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Released - 1992

Being an action title, the game starts off where Indy is about to have an excuse to use his trusty whip: in Monte Carlo, after he recruited headstrong former student Sophie to his aid and determined the location of ancient discs needed to open the door to the lost city of Atlantis. Most action takes place in isometric view, although there are some variations along the way to keep up interest. There are even some adventure-game elements, such as Indy's inventory which you can fill with various objects to use (i.e. money to buy things). They are mostly easy though, and are there only to relieve...

Pinball 4000

Pinball 4000

MS-DOS - Released - March 12, 1994

A banal pinball game developed as a "budget" pinball title by Spidersoft, 21st Century's partially owned developer. Pinball expert Martin Mathis says it all in his uncompromising review: "Multi-table package with four themes. Scrolling 2D view in low-res (VGA) and full-screen non-scrolling 2D view in high-res (SVGA) mode. Additional configurable options for 3- or 5-ball play, table angle and keys. Dot-matrix display. Definitely a dated, redistributed discount package with typical Spidersoft 2D tables. Casino actually has the same features but a different layout as Jackpot in Total...

Pinball Mania

Nintendo Game Boy - Released - January 1, 1995

After the success of Pinball Dreams, Pinball Fantasies and Pinball Illusions, publisher 21st Century Entertainment decided to let Spidersoft Limited develop a fourth game--Pinball Mania. Where the previous games excelled in ball simulation, a lot of people felt that Pinball Mania had very lacking ball physics, making controlled shots difficult to accomplish. A Game Boy port was also released which was only released in the UK.

Pinball Mania

There are sequences of lights to activate, ramps to guide the ball through, and flippers to keep it in play. Multiball can be activated in set ways, to bring a second ball into play.

Super Cars

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Released - 1990

Super Cars is a top-view racing game from Gremlin Interactive, who later produced the Lotus series of games. Stylistically, the game is influenced by Super Sprint. There are 9 tracks at each of the 4 difficulty levels, which can be raced in any order (although the last track you race is made harder than usual). In the races you win money, which can be spent on temporary handling and power upgrades, plus armour plating and front/rear shooting missiles that can knock out other racers.

Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends Pinball

Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends Pinball

Commodore Amiga CD32 - Released - 1995

I have got a problem with computer pinball games. Football, golf, cricket and darts. I have played and enjoyed on the Amiga – but pinball? Nah. If you have got a pound in your pocket and are in the centre of a large town, you will be surrounded by all manner of real silver ball opportunities in arcades and pubs. Now I will readily admit that if you are three years old (Thomas is aimed at age three upwards), you are unlikely to find yourself with a pound in your pocket in the centre of a large town with time to kill. If you do, you are lost, or your parents have abandoned you. Find a...
