Title Unreal Publisher UBI Soft Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 Compatibility Not AGA (but patch available) Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review This game is broken down into 2 parts. A 3D shooting section and a 2D arcade section. The first thing you notice about the game is the excellent graphics, especially in the 2D section. The game switches between the 2 sections after every level starting with the 3D shooting level. The shooting section has you as a bird character shooting at a variety of different dinosaurs while collecting power ups. You have to be careful because you can fly into the scenery depleting your energy in the process. Get to the end of the level and your treated to an amazing still picture previewing the next level. This level is 2D and the graphics and sound effects are stunning! You now become a warrior who carries a sword and must make your way to the end of the level. There is a fair amount of Hack & Slash that has to be done to dispose of monsters. There is also a slight puzzle element involved in this section. You have to use your sword to flip some kinds of switches to be able to overcome obstacles. Not very hard to figure out, but it is a nice touch. Once you get to the end of this level you go back to a different 3D level and shoot different enemies. Complete the shooting level again and you'll go to the next 2D level which has you in a wintry setting. This was my favourite level. It's hard enough to walk without slipping on the snow but you have a howling wind blowing at you to further impede your progress. The sound effects in this section adds so much to the atmosphere of the game. Listen to it and I'm sure you'll agree. I feel the overall difficulty level is a little to easy. I completed the whole game on just a couple of tries, saving my positions as I progressed to the different levels. The game does allow you to save your positions to floppy which I feel is always a good feature in a game. In conclusion, this game is a decent arcade game. Average by todays standards but was amazing years ago when it was first released. The Graphics and Sound will Amaze you. The use of color is great. The colors are almost flourencent in appearance. All this without AGA. An AGA version of this game would be tremendous. I wish more games would use the same color pallette. See for yourself! The sound effects are very realistic. Some of which include a crackling fire, wind howling, and running water. Upon completing the game your unlikely to want to play it again for a while, which leads me to say that more effort was put on the visual and audio aspects of the game rather than gameplay. It's still a good game however. The ending animated sequence alludes to a sequel which sadly never appeared.
