Megahawk

 

An early shoot 'em up for the C64. In it you took control of a flying magical hawk. The magic power seems to be that you can fire some sort of projectile. The best way to describe this game would be a rail shooter. The game has 6 levels which repeat on a loop(getting harder and harder). The is a time limit for each level. You have to survive long enough. On some levels, you can only move side to side, but on the space levels, vertical movement is allowed.

There are a couple of glitches in the game. For example, if you are on the top of the screen on one of the space levels, on the following level you can just stay at the top of the screen and avoid all of the enemies on the ground. The graphics are blocky and quite basic. The sound effects rather simplistic. The game lacks sophistication; especially when compared to the later games of the genre which would appear on the C64. It gets quite repetitive as well. The repeat levels are all very well, but you can't save your name for high scores. No power-ups as well. There is little here to be excited about. Plus, the later space levels can get quite frantic. My advice – avoid.
