Title Furball Game Type Platform Company ? Players 1 HD Installable ? Compatibility All Submission Ian Urie This review appears here by courtesy of The Crypt magazine Review I was asked to play a little game downloaded from the Net. it was available from http://www.dithpurkinje.com/gamesfurball.html The game is called Furball and is free. You may remember (if you've been using an Amiga for any length of time) the small game Dithell in Space? Same author. Now the author has moved on to remixing music and writing music for soundtracks but has made his games available for download. People who do remember Dithell won't be surprised by Furball. It's another platformer and the Amiga did do this format rather well. So, on to the game and how to get it running. The game can be run on both Windoze and Amiga and the author has spent some time getting it to do this. The Amiga version is an adf file. That's Amiga Disk Format to you and you will need any of the packages that convert these to run it on your Amiga. The Windoze version is even easier, unzip the archive and double click on the exe file. The game itself plays smoothly and has lots of colourful graphics. Sprite collision works well, and the game is a nice little time waster. I'm afraid I wasn't that big a fan of platformers and although I played with this one for a little while, it never held my attention. This might just be down to me, however, and I wouldn't want to put anyone off playing it. As I say, the game is slick, graphics are good and the gameplay is there. There is a story to the game I'm sure, but as far as I know, you jump about platforms and jump on the enemies.....nice! Maybe the game is slightly easy for seasoned players of this type, since I got through the first level no problem but I expect things hot up later on. Quake its not, but as a little platform game, it's rather nice. You can while away your time playing this and reminding yourself of all those P.D. games of yesteryear that you looked forward to. The download isn't that big either, so you won't need too long to wait to get your hands on it. I believe the author has been extremely nice by telling us about the game and deserves to have the game tried at least. If you like platformers, give it a try!
