Chambers of Shaolin

Chambers of Shaolin

Commodore Amiga CD32 - Released - 1993

In the first part of this game, you will have to train your character in the various chambers of Shaolin. Each exercise, which includes balancing on trees, kicking a pendulum and dodging objects coming towards you, will improve your skills like stamina and strength. The better you do in the chambers, the easier it will be for you in part two. Part two is a more traditional 2D fighting game where you have to advance from level to level by beating your opponents up.

Chubby Gristle

Chubby Gristle

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Released - January 1, 1988

Chubby Gristle is one of the fattest car park attendants ever and as the game progresses he is likely to get even bigger. On a good day he's barking out instructions such as "You can't park here" but if you happen to be in favour he'll probably mumble "I'll have a word with t'Commissioner and try and sort something out for you". Love 'em or hate 'em, car park attendants can't be ignored! Chubby's one passion in life is FOOD and plenty of it and his aim is to eat his way through 20 screens stuffing himself silly and reaching that one ton mark. If he doesn't, then the consequences of being...

Espionage: The Computer Game

Amstrad CPC - Released - 1988

Espionage is based on the board game of the same name. Up to four players (either human or computer-controlled) compete to become Master Spy by returning all the micro film canisters back to their base. A player has 12 agents in their team including secret agents, surveillance agents and courier agents. Each type of agent moves around the board in a different way, not unlike in chess. Besides getting the micro film, another objective is to terminate any enemy agents. This is done as in draughts, by jumping over the agent into a free space. Killing enemy agents nets points, which, combined with...

Liverpool

Liverpool

Commodore Amiga - 1992

So, at last, the greatest footy team in Britain has lent its name to a game. What a pity it doesn't reflect the quality of the real thing. The game shows a view from just above the pitch, facing one goal area, and the 3-D effect works rather well. The control system is a little lame, though, making it rather difficult to control the ball on the first touch. The players move about in a rather slippery fashion, which gives the game a Subbuteo feel, and when you do get the ball it's ludicrously easy to score. This is partly due to the fact that you can't see the goal until the ball has been...

Nick Faldos Championship Golf

Nick Faldos Championship Golf

Commodore Amiga CD32 - Released - 1994

Arc Developments created a 3D game world called Reality3 for this simulation, licensed around one of Britain's top players. There are two courses, plus a hidden 9-hole course on Mars with reduced gravity, with match play and stroke play options against one of 8 varied-difficulty computer players. The control system is quite unusual, as the strength of the shot is chosen before you start the swing, but you have to click within a range to activate the shot, and this range is narrower if your shot is intended to be more powerful. An extra click can be made to add wrist snap, which increases...

Pac-Land

Pac-Land

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1989

Pac-Land is a side-scrolling 1-2 player game with a cartoony feel to it. Now equipped with arms, face, and legs, Pac must guide a fairy back to her home in Fairy Land, but this task will not be easy because Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, and Sue will pursue Pac-Man as he travels through Pac-Land. When he finally transports the fairy back to her home, Pac is given some magic shoes, which will help him get to his own home, where he will be greeted by his family: Ms. Pac-Man, Baby Pac-Man, Chomp Chomp, and Sourpuss. There are sixteen rounds to complete, with four trips each. During each round, he...

Pac-Mania

Pac-Mania

Amstrad CPC - Released - 1988

Pac-Mania is a variation on the game Pac-Man. You need to guide Pac-Man around a maze and eat all of the dots on the board to proceed on to the next round. Numerous, multi-colored ghosts also roam the maze trying to stop you. If you eat one of the power pellets in the maze, the ghosts will temporarily turn blue and run from you. Pac-Man can earn bonus points by eating the ghosts when they are in this state. The maze is now shown in isometric perspective and is larger than the screen which will scroll to follow the action. To help get out of tight spots, Pac-Man can now jump. But be careful,...

Space Harrier II

Space Harrier II

Amstrad CPC - Released - 1990

Space Harrier II follows (very closely) in the footsteps of its predecessor and involves you (a Space Harrier) going off to save "Fantasy Land". This combined with the many flashing gaudy colors the game throws at you leads me to believe that it was born out of a bad acid trip. There are 13 stages to complete by jetting around and blasting bad guys and bosses as they approach. The game is played from behind the main character and the landscape rushes up in 3D similar to the effect used in many car games such as Outrun. The game uses many of the enemies and bosses from the first Space...
