Oids



In 1987, FTL released a game on the Atari ST that would not only boost the platform's popularity immensely but which also went on to become the best-selling ST game of all time. Dungeon Master was and is an all-time classic, and its position in the gaming hall of fame is 100% deserved. However, FTL also released another game in 1987 - a game which, for me, was every bit as incredible as Dungeon Master but was overshadowed by its sibling to the extent that it is now, to most people at least, long forgotten. That game was 'Oids', and this is my attempt to redress the balance.

Mad Professor Mariarti

 

Professor Mariarti features five whacky laboratories ranging from a biological lab to futuristic space rocket development. However, as a result of some dodgy experiment going mental, everything within has strangely come to life and taken over. To make matters worse, these creatures aren't in the best mood and have also grown body parts, like eyes and legs. I think we better fix this problem and clear out the various labs before it drives the Professor potty!

ORK

My name is Ku-Kabul, a wannabe space captain who has to suffer a series of tests on alien infested words to prove my worth. Each level has a guardian and he won't let you pass until you cross his palm with silver. Thankfully, I have been supplied with a cool laser cannon and a jet booster to help me!
