Hey you! You there! Do you think you could do me a favour? Can you squeeze your balls through this tiny hole? Hey! Wait! Where you going? Come back!
Look at my poison dart. Be a shame if I pricked you with it, wouldn’t it? Good job you’re hidden in a maze that I’m finding it impossible to navigate then. Dammit.
You know what’s a great way to destroy a city? Farting bombs. FARTING BOMBS. I know that because I played this game which is about destroying a city with bombs. And when the bombs hit a building they did a big fart sound. Who can argue with that?
Very similar to:
Blitz on the ZX Spectrum Cassette 50
Jet Flight on the Commodore 64 Cassette 50
High Rise on the Amstrad Cassette 50
Whirly on the Amstrad Cassette 50
Attacker on the Acorn Electron Cassette 50
And so it comes to this. One of the most insulting Cassette 50 games I’ve ever played. Somehow you have to get an attacker (of some sort) into a trap. And there’s a ‘kick’ button, which doesn’t seem to do anything at all. Scoring seems completely random. Fuck off Cassette 50.
Fly a plane to blow up a dam to flood some Gestapo headquarters. Why it didn’t occur to anybody just to bomb the Gestapo headquarters rather than go through with the dam flooding plan is beyond me.
What am I supposed to do here? Am I the attacker? Or the attacked? Which one of the moving shapes on the screen is me and what do they do?
Your guess is as good as mine. I’d love to know. Any ideas gratefully received. A video might help:
Here we go, a game from a time when the concept of dropping a bomb on a building was more scary than flying a plane into one. Which I did, multiple times while trying to play it. You could argue that was the fault of my reactions rather then the g…
Here we go, a game from a time when the concept of dropping a bomb on a building was more scary than flying a plane into one.
Which I did, multiple times while trying to play it. You could argue that was the fault of my reactions rather then the game.
You may be right:
