2048

(Futur Antérieur, 2014)

This brain-bending puzzle game was originally released for mobile phones and quickly became extremely popular. You have to slide numbered tiles around a 4×4 grid, and when you combine two tiles of the same number, they merge and form a new tile whose number is double that of the original tiles. The aim is to obtain a tile with the number 2048. However, you have to move all the tiles on the grid in one go, and every time you move tiles, another one is introduced. It's extremely addictive, and if you haven't played it yet, you'll soon realise why the concept has been so successful. An excellent tune also plays throughout the game, although it can be turned off if you need to concentrate. My only criticism is that the graphics on the MODE 1 version of the game could have been a lot better, but the authors have also released a MODE 0 version with more colourful graphics.

2088

(Zeppelin, 1988)

Those of you who remember the arcade game Robotron: 2084 will recognise this shoot-'em-up. Trapped inside a small arena, you basically have to survive until your ship arrives to pick you up and take you to the next arena! Among the enemies to be destroyed are snakes which split in two when you shoot them (making it even tougher to survive), robots which shoot bullets at you or home in on you, lasers, and exploding bombs. If you somehow survive, there's a bonus level where you pilot your spacecraft through a meteor storm. The graphics are simple yet colourful, and the sound effects do their job. Each level is the same as the previous one, but if you're looking for a quick game, you should try this.

2112 AD

(Design Design, 1986)

It's 2112 AD (as you might have guessed), and the computer that controls the entire city of London is behaving like a tyrant and oppressing its people. You must regain control of the computer by finding ten codes, labelled 0 to 9, and inserting them into the appropriate slots in the correct order. To help you, you have a robotic dog called Poddy – just make sure he doesn't run out of energy! Watch out for the droids; any contact with them will immobilise you. There are also many locked doors which will need to be opened, but the keys to open them aren't always obvious... This game involves a lot of walking to and fro, with little in the way of action and problem-solving. Some of the colour schemes used are horrendous, there is hardly any sound, and the need to look after Poddy makes this a rather dull and tedious game.

Typhoon

(Imagine, 1988)

Take on the alien hordes in an F-14 fighter and a helicopter through five levels of destruction. It's strange how the aliens also use planes and helicopters just like those on Earth, but never mind. You're in a fighter plane for the first and fourth levels, flying into the screen and shooting a few formations of planes. These levels are fairly easy, although the collision detection is very dodgy. You're in a helicopter for the other three levels, which are vertically scrolling affairs. These levels are a bit tougher, with more enemies to contend with and bullets to avoid, although you can use bombs as well as bullets. The graphics are OK and the sound and music are both pretty good, and overall, it's a nice, albeit easy, shoot-'em-up.
