712th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Quintet Publisher: Enix I played Actraiser a long time ago, probably by getting through some random SNES games when I had a chance to – I don’t really know what attracted me to it, but I connected with it. It’s a game […]

709th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Westwood Associates Publisher: Strategic Simulations Inc. I haven’t played too many D&D games for the list recently. Games like Baldur’s Gate defined my taste in games, but after we covered some of them, I’ve left Eye of the Beholder until later. I […]

651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

566th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games After a break, back to the Midway collection. Only one left after this, I promise. But no, we need a new strategy game anyway, based on our numbers, and it’s always good to see a different one, […]

559th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games Welcome to my Atari/Midway arcade-a-thon! Some time ago, we picked up a PSP collection, Midway Arcade Treasures for a decent price, which contained several games on the list. We have used it for a few games already, […]

555th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Williams Publisher: Williams Smash TV is a shoot ’em up descended from the likes of Robotron 2084. Its apparent twist? It’s meant to be a TV show. This worked for me, in a way, in some of the Wipeout setups […]

411th played so far Genre: Sports/Action Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: The Bitmap Brothers Publisher: Image Works The Speedball series (two entries) is a sports game. Not, as the genre often implies, a sports game that is played on fields around the world right now, but instead a futuristic setup that works in […]

408th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Sure, Mario has had many jobs through the years, but I suppose his employment as a doctor is probably more known to people through Super Smash Bros appearances than anyone who have played the game. Even when playing Warioware […]

358th played so far Genre: Flight Simulator Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo SNES fest! I do love obsessively playing a run of games from one console. After Monkey Island, today we turn to Pilotwings. Again a game from my youth, although not as major as Monkey Island, I remember playing […]
