Title Blood Money Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 or 2 Compatibility All (degrade for higher specs) HD Installable Patch is available Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review This was one of the first really great shoot'em ups on the Amiga. Upon loading you are treated to a very nice intro animation showing a spaceship flying through an asteroid field. This has nothing to do with the game but is impressive to watch. The aim of the game is to blast your way through and survive 4 different planets. Each planet has their own unique enemies and surroundings. Shooting an enemy results in them dropping a coin which can be collected. Collecting coins gives you money in which you will be able to buy more and better weapons. There are shops at various points along the way, so you will never be playing too long without having the option to upgrade your weapons. The gameplay is very good. The game scrolls both horizontally and vertically, but at a fairly slow pace. This doesn't make the game any easier however, the enemies although having set attack patterns are very numerous. Besides getting killed by the enemies you can also die by flying into the scenery. To further impede your progress you sometimes have to shoot through objects to make a path for yourself, so you can just barely fly through without hitting anything. This adds a little different element to the game but its still a blast everything in sight shoot'em up. The graphics are very good throughout the whole game. The sound is just average and you can select between sound effects and music. In conclusion, I have to say that this is one of my favorite shoot'em ups on the Amiga. Its a little bit dated now but, the gameplay is still excellent. It's definitely an Amiga classic in my opinion, and you won't be dissappointed buying it.
