Backyard Baseball, one of Humongous Entertainment’s many “Backyard Sports” titles, took the “Computer Children’s Title of the Year” award. The game is a pint-sized baseball action game that runs on both the Mac and PC; players can compete in league play or pick-up games, create their own teams and even design uniforms.
Sid Meier’s Civilization III is the latest edition of the long-running, near-legendary turn-based strategy game in which you assume the role of a leader of a civilization, which you must help develop from the Stone Age to the Space Age. Civ III picked up the “Computer Strategy Game of the Year” award during the AIAS event.
