Title The Plague Publisher Innerprise Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 Compatibility OCS (AGA patch available) HD Installable Patch available Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review This game can best be described as a running and jumping shoot'em up. You control a man who must make his way to the end of the level while shooting every creature and avoiding obstacles. The game scrolls from left to right and all the sprites are HUGE. Along the way you will be constantly attacked by a variety of enemy creatures. The creatures range from giant flies to eyeballs to spear shooting creatures. The creatures attack in set patterns but are pretty numerous. At the end of each level you must face the guardian, this creature must be shot many times to be killed. Your starting weapon is a basic gun but there are different weapons to collect along the way. Also holding down the fire button for a second will release a flameball. This weapon can take out a bunch of enemies at a time. There are obstacles that must be avoided along the way, fire pits must be jumped over, some other weapons come out of the ground and attack you and these must also be avoided. The graphics in the game are very good, and all the sprites are HUGE. The intro picture is also pretty cool. The levels are pretty well designed and joystick response and collision detection is also very good. The game plays well but I somehow feel that something is missing in the game. I can't point my finger on it however, Maybe it's because the game really didn't get my adrenaline flowing. Since everything attacks in set patterns, the game always feels the same. Having some artificial intelligence for the enemies would have made this a much better game. You will enjoy playing the first couple of times you play but will eventually get bored. Too bad because this game does have lots of potential. In conclusion, a very nice attempt by innerprise but the game lacks excitement. There are many nice touches and you will enjoy the game the first couple of times you play but you will find that something is missing. It's certainly not a bad game and some people will probably really enjoy it, but I feel that similiar games like Jim Power are better. Try it, you might like it, I did for a while but it's not something that I will keep coming back to.
