Title Body Blows Galactic Publisher Team17 (1993) Game Type Beat-em-up Players 1 or 2 HD Installable No Compatibility Not 040 Submission Emmanuel Henne Review "After defeating the Evil Max, Dan and Junior decide to take on the universe..." These are the opening words of the sequel to one of the most successful Amiga games of all time: "Body Blows Galactic". While the original "Body Blows" had a more down to Earth flavour, "Galactic" confronted the player with a rich variety of very strange creatures from different planets and parts of the galaxy: robots, energy entities, amazons, dinosaurs... The gameplay remained untouched (what luck), while the graphics were completely overhauled and better than before. In "Galactic", each "arena" is set on another planet, and they are completely different: fight for the crown on a techno planet, rival Your opponent on a jungle planet or throw fireballs on a icy planet, everything is possible, anything goes ! Along with new enemies, the special effects were greatly improved: on the planet "Feminion", You`ll see Your own reflection in the water, on "Eclipse" the oceans are frozen and the skies are burning (animated with a nice colour cycling effect).... Also, the sound had been enhanced quite a bit, while the overall music style was still the same. As additional new features, T17 introduced "Mercy" (similiar to "Finish Him !" in Mortal Kombat) and energy bars which, when loaded fully, allow the use of a special-special-special weapon. The game is as fast and furious as You`d expect, and solely the fact that nothing really new is being offered prevents it from reaching the top class of games. For those who enjoyed "Body Blows", this is a worthy sequel with enough variety to keep You fighting with all characters through all levels, nothing more, nothing less.
