Cannon Fodder

Up until now most of my reviews have been of some great homebrew games. So I am changing things up and reviewing a classic Amiga title. Cannon Fodder is an action, strategy game in which the player takes control of a squad of up to five little soldiers on a battlefield.

Midwinter

 

Midwinter is one of those games which is hard to categorise, I guess its best descibed as a shoot'em up - strategy - adventure game. Created by the late Mike Singleton of Lords of Midnight (Speccy & C64) fame. What strikes you first is the amazing graphics and sounds which utilises the Amiga's 16bit engine very well and I have to say still look and sound great even by todays standards. The aim of the game is to overthrow the evil General Masters and his merry band of men from you have captured Midwinter Island.

Zerosphere

 

Up until now all my reviews have been for the humble Spectrum. So it made a nice change to be given the opportunity to write about a new homebrew Amiga game. Zerosphere is a whacky game created by Code Red that brings an interesting twist on the traditional platform game.

Z-Out

 

The sequel to X-Out is quite a different type of game to its predecessor. Gone are the shops and different types of spaceship and it can now be played by two players as well. The game feels a lot like the classic R-Type, especially when you collect the add-ons and power-ups including, in one player mode, a R-Type like drone.

UGH!

 

It's the days of the dinosaur, and while sitting around trying not to get eaten our hero Ugh (played by you obviously) has the great idea of inventing a helicopter style transport cage. Wifey wants to see some money from this great new invention ad so you are tasked with setting up a taxi service to ferry the cavemen between platforms at various levels.
