Revenge of the Mutant Camels

I've played a few of Llamasofts 8 bit games, but they were always a bit too intense for me (Defender not being the love of my life and all that), but I always admired Jeff Minter, he seemed to have a kind of ethos that I went along with (apart from his love of Defender that is), and that’s what drew me to this tripped out shooter…

F-19 Stealth Fighter

As a product, this hits all the right buttons right from the start, with a heavy Microprose big box and its glossy outer sleeve: inside the box you find a keyboard overlay(believe me, essential), large colour maps of the four areas of conflict, and a thick manual – a fondly remembered feature of Microprose games…

McDonald Land

Firstly, yes I am in fact reviewing a McDonald's-endorsed platformer, and yes it didn't do anything particularly new or exciting – but believe it or not, this game is oddly playable and actually kinda fun…

Tower of Babel

Now this is a creative and fascinatingly addictive strategy game!

Forget the weird background story, the important thing is the challenging gameplay: somewhere in the future, in a surreal landscape full of towers, you take control of three robots: a zapper, a grabber and a pusher…

Birds of Prey

It took almost four years to develop this flight simulation and it was meant to shatter the competition by simulating fourty (!) different aircraft in one single game!

The final result was a bit underwhelming since they all have the same cockpit and the sound and fx were also not that great…
