Title Walker Publisher Psygnosis Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 Compatibility All HD Installable Patch Available Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review This is the first time that I have seen something new done to the shoot'em genre. The control method is different to what the norm is and it works very well. The object of the game is to shoot all enemies and enemy vehicles. You control a walker (which is a creature from the starwars movie) and must kill all the enemies before losing all your energy. You must use both the mouse and the joystick. The joystick makes you move from right to left and the mouse aims your gun and shoots your bullets. The right mouse button makes you lock onto a target and the left button will shoot your guns. You must be careful not to shoot too many bullets at once because your gun will start to overheat and then won't fire. I know the control method might sound weird but believe me it works extremely well. The game plays very well. There is some good intelligence to the enemies. They will try to run away when you aim at them and as soon as you shoot at something else they will turn around and start shooting at you again. The enemies soldiers are very numerous and can also be killed by stepping on them. This is a nice touch as they flatten nicely into the ground. Some enemies shoot at you from buildings and when you shoot them, they scream and fall off the building and splat on the ground. But the soldiers are the easiest of all the enemies to kill, things will get much harder. Enemy planes and helicopters will fly right at you dropping bombs on you. You will have to be quick to shoot all of these. There is also some kind of car that lays land mines, which will injure you if you step on any. You can shoot the mines to explode them before you walk over them. Some enemy soldiers will try to climb on top of you and plant a bomb on you, you can wiggle the joystick back and forth, and try to make them fall off or shoot them as they are hanging off you. This is a very nice touch to the game. The graphics are excellent but the sound is awesome! There is also sampled speech in the game. The levels really don't vary that much and the only thing that changes is that each level adds a new enemy. The playability of this game is superb! It's different to any other type of shooting game that I have ever played but it still feels just right. The difficulty level is perfect. Its starts off easy and gradually becomes hard. There are also end of level super enemies that will take some time to kill. The game is not very fast paced but it will feel like it is because of the amount of enemies attacking you. There is some strategy to the game. Some enemies must be shot before other kinds of enemies are shot. You will see why when you play the game. In conclusion, A novel idea implemented very well into the shoot'em up genre. Everything feels just right. It's nice to have a shoot'em up where some strategy and thought is involved. I've always felt that this game was underrated because it is one of the best shooting games on the amiga. It's not perfect but it is one hell of a good game. You get absorbed in the game and will love mowing down a group of enemy soldiers. Good graphics along with awesome sound make this game a visual and audio treat, but thankfully the playability wasn't sacrificed. You want a game that you will want to keep playing without getting bored? You want a game with great graphics and sound? You want a game with exceptionally good playability, then get this game and you will be treated to all of these good things.
