618th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Sensible Software Publisher: Virgin Interactive Partially because of this blog, I started reading up more on older games, to learn about their background and find out more about them. Cannon Fodder is one of the games that I feel are often discussed […]

614th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Hidden Path Entertainment Publisher: Hidden Path Entertainment/Microsoft Studios Although there are plenty of tower defense games out there these days, we don’t see many on the list.

604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so. Released for the rather small Neo Geo Pocket Color, this strategy […]

596th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Keen Games Publisher: Disney Interactive I’ve always wanted to play the Anno series. The basic ideas of village building and economy handling is one that appeals to me, as previously discussed for The Settlers, it scratches this vaguely simulationist itch. Out […]

585th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’ll be honest, based on the cover and title I figured this would be another RPG. It’s not – this is a strategy game in the style of Fire Emblem and the like, but set in a fictional […]

568th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: iPhone Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Phil Hassey Galcon looks like a shooter. At least, that’s what I thought when I saw the screenshots (and every time I googled it to see what was happening). Loads of colourful shapes, mostly abstract – the semi-retro look of, say, Geometry […]

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, […]

554th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo It really has taken me a while to start on a Fire Emblem game. There aren’t that many on the list, but it’s a major and influential franchise. I played a 3DS iteration before, but that’s at the […]

542nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Mythos Games Publisher: Microprose We played the first X-Com game a few years ago, and I remember it as being outdated – no in game tutorial or handholding, just putting you in there and wishing you good luck. The second game isn’t […]

532nd played so far Genre: Role Playing/Strategy Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Nippon Ichi Software Publisher: Atlus/Koei I’m struggling to remember whether we’ve played a tactical RPG yet. I’ve played some before – Pokemon Conquest was an addiction in the house for a while – but aside from games in the region […]
