Great Computer Games from the early to mid 1980s

20 items ranked

The early 1980s to mid 1980s was a great time for computer games. Many great ideas were brought forth. Graphics were not great, but still developers provided great game ideas and with adequate speeds.

Cosmic Balance Report Abuse
This is a 2-player game. Each player designs a space fleet, each ship in the fleet is individually designed. The two fleets then fight it out to see who can win, testing the designs of the fleet and the tactical abilities of the players. Great concept. Haven't seen anything like it since.

Crush Crumble and Chomp Report Abuse
A very unique idea where the player designs a monster, based on a body type and giving it certain powers. The player chooses a city to attack and then tries to wreak as much havoc as possible before the humans destroy the monster.
